An Oldie but a Goodie
When I travel, I look for accommodation that is a little out of the ordinary. When in Launceston, Tasmania recently, I stayed at a little motel called The Mews, not far from the city centre. I note that it is also called a B & B. It fits either category.

Sadly, I have been unable to locate any detailed history of the building on Dr Google, but I do know it was built earlier than 1881, as it appears in a photograph taken in that year. Launceston was settled by Europeans as early as 1806 you can read more about the history
here and here.

As a solo traveller, I found it very convenient, comfortable and safe. It's handy walking distance to a number of hotels, cafes, restaurants and the Tiger Bus, a free bus which meanders around parts of the city.. One can get on and off at one's wishes.

My room was cosy (yes, it was cold in Tasmania). The Hostess was very friendly and helpful.

In the rear of the premises is a deck with seating and BBQ facilities, overlooking the car parking, which is very secure and nearby is a 100-year-old orange tree which produces plenty of very tasty fruit!!

I look forward to revisiting The Mews one day.
