A friendly welcome set the right tone for a pleasant stay in Launceston. Rooms are spacious and well furnished. With free parking and a short walk to restaurants and the centre of town, it is an ideal place to stay for experiencing Launceston. Cooked breakfast included in room tariff is a real bonus.

Stayed two nights here, everything was perfect. Was only staying for one night, and our circumstances changed where we had to stay another. We were really looked after. The cooked breakfasts are amazing!

Check-in was a breeze and staff were very friendly. the room itself...

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.

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...
