Great central location with clean comfortable rooms and helpful staff. Only downside was the noise from the nightclub below as it was a Saturday night. Happy to let you leave luggage and use common room after check-out. Would stay again.

Mum and I stayed here for two nights after coming off our Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair hike and I wanted somewhere affordable but with the luxury of an en suite. This hotel really fitted the bill! The room we had was reasonably small but that is pretty much the only negative - everything was spotlessly clean and the... More

We selected the Batman Fawkner Inn for location and the positive reviews it has. Staff were very obliging, as our group had to leave for a week's walk on the Overland track, and then return for another night, and we were able to leave our bags safely there. The location is very central in Launceston, so arriving and departing by... More

We stayed here before setting off to do the Overland track. The location was convenient, the staff were very accommodating and approachable and the room was well priced. I do however, recommend that you ask for a room away from the pub, as we begrudgingly listened to heavy metal until 2:30am. Apart from that, everything was fine!

Another memorable weekend in Launceston. Organised in advance a booking for 7 women attending a conference in Launceston. As with my previous visit I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Great value rooms. All refurbished, linen and towels provided.Clean, safe and very central. Night club in neighboring building was the only down side but ear plugs took... More

I stayed here last year and again this year. The hotel is being refurbished, so not sure what the end result will be. However, it is still really good value at $85 twin/double, booked online. It's centrally located. The reception staff were noticeably friendlier and more helpful than last time (possibly completed hospitality training).

So disappointed. They are remodeling and thought it would be a good idea to tear up the old tv room before the new one is finished so the only place you can hang out is in the lobby and you have to eat at the kitchen counter. I walked by A LOT of empty rooms so they did not need... More

Apparently putting one single bed on top of another and attaching with a single bolt makes a 'bunk bed'. Clearly the owners have been misled by The Spice Girls song, '2 become 1'. As promised, there was more room for activities. But at what cost?! Needlessly to say we feared for our lives, but we knew, should we die, not... More
