Windmill Hill Lodge
The property was built in 1875 by the Green family and is located among some of Launceston's most gracious and stately properties in a National Trust Classified precinct. It has been furnished in Victorian period style and walking through the grand old front door into the hallway is like stepping back in time. The house is kept as much as possible as a period property but as a Bed & Breakfast it also boasts all modern amenities. All rooms have ensuites, refrigerators and tea and coffee making facilities. Several of our rooms are self catering which is handy for families and those who prefer to cater for themselves. Our heritage rooms are spacious, airy and give one a feeling of living in the Victorian era. Breakfast, both buffet and cooked, is served in our spacious dining room. We pride ourselves on the quality and variety of our breakfasts. We make all our own breads, jams, muffins ,stewed fruits, yoghurt, creamed rice, bircher muesli, porridge and more daily. In addition we offer freshly ground coffees, juices, cereals and fresh fruit. Why not come and sample what we believe to be the freshest and best breakfast in Launceston.
