“Beautiful”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

What a beautiful house! What a lovely, relaxing time we had at Twyford. With everything we needed in such a gorgeous setting. We were very lucky to stay here over the Easter weekend watching the leaves change colour and the crisp autumn mornings. The cool nights were enjoyed with a book near the heater in the sumptuous couches in the formal living room.
We were close walk to the supermarket and shops and a short drive to Launceston town.
The owner was very professional in her communication and the tasteful decorating, comfortable beds and beautiful period features made the house so charming.
We would definitely stay here again.

Dear Noula 15
Thanks very much for the lovely review and we are very glad you enjoyed Twyford. The garden has some lovely trees and everyone except my poor husband enjoys Autumn (he's the leaf raker!) That wonderful couch in the formal lounge is a favourite with many guests.
Glad you enjoyed the location as well.
Kind regards

“Superlative.”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

So many good words to describe the experience. From walking through the door to be greeted by the owner - who was concerned that we were getting in so early in the morning so stayed to be sure we got there safely.
The house is wonderful. Was right for three and would be great for four to six. Separate living areas for individual space if required. Everything provided - you could walk in and cook a meal from the cupboards. Heat pump, solar panels, walk-in shower, two toilets and beds that make it difficult getting up from in the morning.
We all enjoyed our stay here thoroughly. Warm days were outside, cool days were inside. Both very comfortably.

“amazing”
Reviewed 20 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

The property is amazing
filled with light and character the kitchen is just superb (as is every other room)we intended to eat out however l couldn't resist cooking in it every night!
we are an extended family of 6 one only 3 yrs old and it was so roomy and comfortable we never felt like we were on top of each other and the fully fenced yard was fantastic for the little one
Twyford is perfectly situated for a day (or several) of shopping at the lovely gift and boutique shops just a block away or in Launceston 5mins further down the rd or as a base as you visit the fantastic raspberry farm and other points of interest we had a wonderful time and Bron was so helpful and full of knowledge on ways to make the most of our holiday could not recommend this property and the service we received more highly

Thanks so much for your lovely review Bonnie, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay! I must admit the kitchen is our favourite room in the house. There is so much to do in and around Launceston and we are glad you enjoyed the location of Twyford. Hope to see you again one day!

“Poor communication created an unfortunate experience”
Reviewed 12 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Unfortunately, we did not have as positive an experience as our fellow tenants. Having never had an issue in our many house rentals previously, strictly applied terms and conditions and Gruff communication when seeking an explanation on the withholding of part of our bond left our family feeling glum. There is nothing worse than leaving a holiday feeling taken advantage of unless perhaps it is having to revisit your negative experience in a review (which until now we have never felt compelled to do). The management of this property are evidently house proud... It is a truly lovely property but we left feeling as if we had paid for the experience of staying in a showroom rather than in a home. If the intention of your stay is to truly 'make yourself at home', you may want to consider other options.

As an operator of award winning properties, the vast majority of our guests are a joy to deal with and treat Twyford as they would the house of a family friend. At ALL times these guests were communicated with at EVERY level, We certainly don’t expect the property to be in “show room” condition after a stay, but as per the terms and conditions do ask that the house is left in good condition including the kitchen. Guests are made aware of what constitutes terms and conditions and it is extremely rare for any bond to be withheld. After the stay, my cleaner advised that the kitchen was left in unreasonable condition and she would be required to perform extra cleaning at an additional cost to us of $40 The guest was advised in advance by email that the $40 would be withheld from the bond and given the reasons why. Photos taken by my cleaner to justify her extra work time were provided to the guest. The remaining bond was deposited to the guest’s bank account immediately after they were advised that the $40 would be witheld. The amount of bond taken was only what was necessary despite the threats of a bad review by the guests. Extremely disappointing as a phone call the day that they left (late of course) prior to inspection advised how much they enjoyed the property
