After more than 30 years working in management roles in the hospitality and tourism industries in Tasmania, it is no surprise that when looking for an opportunity to improve her work life balance, Pam purchased the boutique self-catering apartments TWOFOURTWO in her hometown of Launceston in Tasmania.

The building is of historic significance being built in 1888 as confectionary shop with stables.

The four unique apartments The Studio, The Terrace, The Bakehouse and Number 10 Townhouse all have their own distinctive layout, showcase local art and are furnished by nationally awarded contemporary furniture designer Alan Livermore.

All apartments feature king size beds, Gaggia coffee machines with fresh coffee, a pillow menu, DVD library, state of the art kitchens and generous breakfast provisions. A maxi bar featuring a range of iconic Tasmanian cool-climate wines is offered in each apartment. Free wireless internet and parking is available.

Pam was busy overseeing the cleaning of each apartment when we visited and said, ‘I am fastidious and using my experience in hospitality operations and 18 years with Tourism Tasmania gives me an edge in anticipating guest’s needs. Plus my Tasmanian tourism knowledge is second to none’.

TWOFOURTWO Boutique Apartments are ideally located in the hub of Launceston’s restaurant and cafe strip. Within a short walk is a green grocer, a specialty Tasmanian butcher, Sportys Pub with a French Bistro, a Coles supermarket, Burger Got Soul (burgers made on the spot), Noodle Bar and two cafes.

It was time for a coffee so we headed to the popular Café Mondelo located in the TWOFOURTWO building serving breakfast and lunch seven days a week.

Pam’s insider knowledge of Launceston and greater Tasmania is amazing and well worth checking ideas with her prior to your stay to make the most of your visit. Pam suggested we head to the Tamar Valley, visit Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre that includes the Mine Rescue exhibition telling the incredible April 2006 story of the rescue of miners Todd Russell and Brant Webb; and lunch at Goaty Hill Winery. A yummy Gourmet Platter lunch was washed down with a rich ruby red Goaty Hill Pinot Noir.

Updating Pam on our day’s adventure we could see why her work-life-balance is working – we were happy clients and already planning our next visit to stay in the Terrace at TWOFOURTWO.
