What a terrific older style hotel, however we stayed in the newer Areca section and found the room to be very comfortable and more than adequate for our needs. Everything was clean and neat and well presented and the continental breakfast was a delight , the second morning we had a cooked breakfast which was more than filling and prepared...

What a fabulous hotel and a fabulous room, everything was perfect and the owners were very helpful. I would happily stay here again. The room was huge, a double shower, corner spa, four post bed, cooked breakfast - the perfect end to our Tassie holiday.

Had booked this place well in advance, booked a spa room as a special treat for my birthday. -When we arrived we found the carpark well below the motel and the steps nearly impossible to negotiate being too steep. With a big suitcase and bags to take in as well,it was a horrid thought. so looking pained the concierge offered...

This Victorian style home was quite nice with plenty of room. However, the weather was very hot during our two day stay and it would have been nice to have air conditioning as the room was very hot and stuffy at night making it hard to sleep. The staff were very attentive to your needs and helpful. The breakfasts were...

The Waratah on York is a little bit out of the CBD of launceston which was a bit of a downfall for us because we had loved the convenience of being in the center of town, but the hotel was nice, grand and well kept. It was a little noisy at night if sleeping right near the window, and some...

This Victorian style was just lovely, very clean and comfortable room to move could have stayed longer. With a modern style on the bathroom very roomy. Only difficulty was getting my heavy suitcase up the stairs for the last night of our stay in Launceston. Great location to all restaurants, which we popped down to the "Metz" for an amazing...

Had such a lovely night here, wish we'd booked more time. Big, gorgeous light filled room with immaculate spa bathtub, incredibly comfy four poster bed that we never wanted to leave. The room was like stepping back in time to 1900s in the best way possible. Stunning room and friendly staff!

The owners where lovely, I got told only one room left until we found out what was wrong with the plane and if need accommodation they let us hold it for 1/2 hour until we where aware what was happening, as soon as I knew what was happening with the flight I called back and they said is that the...

Waratah on York An awkward experience all around where money needs to be spent to make this motel, more comfortable and soon at these costs. Car-park stairs: The top middle step is a hazard that I had just warned my partner of without a rainy day and a slippery metal rail added to the equation and it’s potentially accident waiting...
