"Exquisite property where everything is thought of!"We spent two nights at Ellie's Place because we saw it rated highly in reviews. We expected something special, but were blown away! This home has been beautifully decorated and the details are amazing. From sitting in the cosy front lounge, to cooking in the beautiful kitchen and relaxing in the claw foot bath! Ellie's place has it all... even a study with an old piano (beyond tuning... but fun anyway:) and you even get monkeys across the road! Only disappoinment is we'd only arranged for two nights in Launceston. We'll certainly be coming back! We'd highly recommend Ellie's Place and the warm hospitality of Bron:)

Our family of two adults and three boys aged 12. 10 & 8 had a great stay at Ellie's Place on City Park. Nothing was too much trouble for Bronwyn, who was an absolutely deightful hostess from start to finish. The cottage is lovely with everything you need for a self catering, comfortable stay. The location is superb with immediate access to City Park and a visit to the monkeys and play equipment for the children. We walked to the wharf area, on to Cataract Gorge and back again through the Mall. There is a full supermarket close by, again in walking distance.
Thanks once again Bronwyn for a pleasant stay, and we'll definitely be staying at Ellie's Place on our return visits to Launceston.

The purpose of our trip to Launceston was for our 6 week old granddaughter and 2 year old grandson to meet their 92 year old great grandmother. Ellie's Place was the ideal location and atmosphere for such a reunion. We found the house to be very comfortable and very homey. It is truly a home away from home. Everyone that came into the house was overwhelmed by the decor and effort that the owners have gone to to make you feel welcome. There was ample room for the 4 adults and 2 children, and walking distance to supermarkets, eating places and especially the park to play in. I highly recommend Ellie's Place to any one wanting that special touch in their holiday. Thank you to Bronwyn
