Stayed here for three nights while touring Tasmania. Room on the front of the hotel had great view over the city. Bed was very comfortable, quality linens. Fridge, microwave, and kettle in room, along with milk for beverages, tea and coffee. Sofa opposite TV, which comes with Netflix account! That was a first for me and greatly appreciated. Bathroom had...

Stayed here with my teenage daughter for 3 nights starting New Year's Eve. Pleasantly surprised to be informed we would have a view of the fireworks from our 2nd floor window. The location was good. Short to moderate walk to shops and other attractions. While we had a car with us, we chose to walk everywhere, including to the beautiful...

We stayed here for three nights. The staff was polite and helpful. The room was spacious with sofa, table, two chairs, microwave and eating utensils. The bathroom was separate from the toilet. It was a little bit inconvenience. We did not drive and did not realise that the hotel was located at a slope. It was a little bit difficult...

Our second visit to Launceston and we were impressed enough with Balmoral on York to pay a return visit. We'd booked and paid well in advance for the room and cooked breakfast and it was again great value for the price. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and quiet. Not the flashiest place around but as long as there's a hot...

From the outside the hotel looks a bit ugly but dont let it spook you. The rooms are nice, spacious and comfy. The staff are also very friendly and helpful. Another plus the hotel is that they offer netflix so in a cold rainy day you can stay inside and watch some movies.

Staff and owners here are very helpful and polite. Great easy convenient parking even though you are basically at the edge of the city centre. Great elevated views in the front rooms over much of Launceston and local heritage architecture buildings across the road and down the hill. Rooms spacious with separate lounge/dining area with LED TV (Many rooms have...

We paid for breakfast with our room rate and found that there was plenty of choices to be had and would suit most tastes. It's central location allowed us to walk around town to view the sites, would...

Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and spacious. Hotel was recommended by a friend as a good place to start our Tassie holiday and I totally agree. Good off-street parking. Modest continental breakfast.

I hate writing bad reviews so I am gonna make up by writing some positive ones later but y'all know that feeling when you are so mad you just need to vent. Anyways, we came back from the Cradle Mountains and checked ourselves in at the hotel. Everything went smooth so far albeit the hotel looking anything but a "4-star"...
