About Alice's Cottages and Spa Hideaways

Alice's Cottages and Spa Hideaways offers a mixture of elegant villas and rustic cottages — all of which are self-sufficient — on the outskirts of Launceston. Each living unit features a unique theme, furniture set, and design aesthetic.

Each living unit includes either a full kitchen or furnished kitchenette, private bathroom, antique furniture, and vibrant wall patterning. Free Wi-Fi access and appliances for laundry are also included.

The property features free parking, a shared garden space between living units, and options for pet allowance. Several living units feature extensive library collections or recreational games.

Alice's Cottages and Spa Hideaways does not serve prepared breakfasts, but instead supplies guests with ingredient baskets for use in personal kitchens. Typical baskets include eggs, yoghurt, bread, and more.

Launceston's nearby centre features grocery shops, bars, restaurants, and a regional airport. The rural Cataract Gorge and Tamar Valley, which are perfect for hiking or cycling, are within driving range.

Positive Reviews

Wonderfully warm hosts.

The proprietors of these cottages and villa-style living units truly know how to make you feel welcome, and do everything in their power to ensure the best experience possible. They personally contact you about any issues, go out of their way to implement special requests, and have genuine smiles while interacting with guests.

Imaginative cottage themes.

The theme for each cottage is charming and full of life, with the Scottish and Welsh cottages receiving special praise most often. The living spaces are packed with artwork, design choices, and activities that recall both the history and culture of the intended theme.

Idyllic surroundings.

The property is serene and lush, with stretches of woodland, garden, and manicured estate grounds open to you and fellow guests. If you're looking to pick up supplies or dine out, you can take an easily accessible road into Launceston's centre.

Negative Reviews

Early check-out times.

Numerous guests were displeased with the property's designated check-out deadline, which may not leave ample time for eating breakfast, taking a last stroll around the premises, or sleeping in. If your heart is set on a late check-out, contact the property well in advance and place a request.

Occasional road noise.

While the nearby road isn't used as a major motorway, it's still subject to passing motorists at random hours of morning and evening. This is mainly an issue if your cottage is near the road, and you're sensitive to noise.

Towels should be larger.

The towel quality is average, but their dimensions make it difficult to dry off after a shower or spa bath. This is more of an inconvenience than a pressing issue, but you may still want to bring your own towels if you foresee an issue.
