I spent three nights at the Charles Mantra Hotel when in Launceston for business meetings, and thoroughly enjoyed it. As someone who despises stuffy rooms (of which I’d recently had a few) and thrives on fresh air, it was a welcome relief to have a sliding glass door opening to the outside world. No view as such, but refreshing air...

Hotel staff exceptional and hotel clean, unfortunately rooms are small and no gym or pool, biggest issue was the bad mattresses, the one in my room was so hard and caused back and hip strains, requested assistance and given a mattress cover however this did little for hard mattress.

The room was neat and tidy and met my needs for a business trip. The aircon was hard to get right so take warm clothes with you. Interesting orange detail throughout the hotel. The room service options were really delicious from the restaurant.

The restaurant provides a nice environment to eat a nice menu and food is a good quality. On my last stay i didn't want anything quite as big as on the menu and the chef...

After a frustrating day it was great to get to Hotel Charles, be welcomed by friendly, capable staff and be able to relax in a very well appointed room. Breakfast in the restaurant was good, with a good selection.

Service experience upon arrival was was poor for a hotel I have previously stay at.

It was a very spacious room and i was really happy with ease of check-in and out. Room service was speedy and only downfall was the lack of parking available. I would definitely stay here again next time I'm in town.

Could not fault the experience. 10 out of 10. Good location , friendly staff, good clean and spacious room. I did not get the opportunity to dine in as the restaurant was fully booked which in itself is a very high recommendation. I did go to the dining room for breakfast and enjoyed the full breakfast.
