I stayed one night in the BFI in a twin dorm (but I was the only one in the room). Renovations are under-way and from what I seen they are timely. All rooms have their own en-suite which is a real bonus particularly at the bargain price of the room and the water pressure and hot water was fantastic. Rooms... More

Could not fault our stay at the Batman Fawkner Inn. Within walking distance to Aurora Stadium, Boags Brewery, pubs and restaurants. Rooms were clean and staff were very friendly. Would definitely stay here again if we come over for the footy.

Advertised as budget accomodation yet $140 for 1 night!! Room was freezing cold (no heater) dirty (unclean linen and bathroom) and smelly! Literally right outside our window was a pub playing heavy metal until 3 am. The staff were lovely and delt with our complaints really well. All up, none of these things would have been an issue if it... More

This old hotel must have been great in its day. We stayed only one night (a Saturday night) and unfortunately we had no where else to stay. The place was full of footy supporters like us and naturally there was a bit of partying going on until early hours of the morning. Under our rooms there there is a club.... More

Have stayed here a couple of times, most recent one in June 2014. It's a good spot to stay in Launceston for a weekend at the footy, end of season trip or bucks night. Rooms pretty good and en suites fair enough, but beds and the shower average quality. As a place just to sleep though when you're not spending... More

It was centered between every thing I wanted to go too never had to walk more then 10 minutes to get any where, nice clean tidy room. Great service. But think you need to give a key to each person staying in the room in case they separate and one falls asleep and doesn't let the other in...

Clean, friendly, laundry and good cooking facilities and easy walk to all the Launceston CBD. In a historic building, this hotel caters for back packers, budget minded families and older couples like ourselves. We will be happy to return.

Looking for cheap accommodation in Launceston was difficult and finally ended up taking out a room at this place, relying almost entirely on its price and location. Unfortunately these are the only positive aspects of what is effectively a run-down backpackers that should be avoided. There is almost no off-street parking, and that which is available is not exactly safe... More

Stayed here for breath of life on March. When we got in, the rooms light was blown and the lady advised some one would fix the following day and no body came. The mattresses had urine stains on them, the room smelt old and and dirty. I had asked for a double bed with the single on top only to... More
