My husband was in the LGH for 10 days and I stayed opposite at the Hotel Charles. This made life much easier. The staff were so helpful as I had no idea how long we would be in Launceston. The free wifi was appreciated as I had to keep in touch with family and friends around the world. Enjoyed having... More

I arrived in Launceston for the first time late in the evening and was not expecting great things at Hotel Charles - but I was hugely surprised to walk into a very smart contemporary reception area. The adjacent lounge and fireplace set a nice ambience too. The staff were very helpful and the restaurant food was high quality. The rooms... More

Staff are excellent, this hotel can pride themselves on consistency. We had a function, and the staff were always there to help. All different types of travellers using The Charles, business, holiday makers and they all seemed to be happy. Well done.

This hotel was perfect for business. Close walk to town, Coles supermarket, Cinema, local restaraunts, Tamar Cataract Gorge. The restaraunt at the Hotel served buffet breakfast, booked the night before @$20 per person, for cooked breakfast & continental buffet. Nice casual seating area at the front of the Hotel, with through the wall decorative flame fire, with local & Melbourne... More

We had a one night stay at Hotel Charles after staying at two other hotels in town. Hotel Charles was hands down the best of them all. Despite the exterior that some might balk at, the interior is every bit a modern hotel like a nicer Novotel you'd find elsewhere, but would not expect in a small town in Tasmania.... More

Nice hotel, good wifi access and very clean throughout. Restaurant serves excellent food but clearly a bullying issue going on there which is very obvious to diners. Makes eating there an uncomfortable experience over a number of days. Would have gone elsewhere if weather had not been so wild. No feedback form visible anywhere, hence this review.

Had an overnight stay in this fabulous hotel, wish it could have been longer. Great to have a small kitchenette in a good sized room, free Wifi, good value breakfast, happy hour in the bar, the list goes on.

First thing I thought on seeing hotel is it looks like a hospital, and apparently it used to be one and still has the look of it throughout. Room was clean and tidy and contains a small kitchen. Was a quiet area I think despite reading it was none cafe strip? Had breakfast in restaurant and also a high tea... More

The hotel was pretty easy to find and offers plenty of car parking space at no charge. The reception staff were really friendly and helpful, recommending that we make dinner reservations for the Saturday evening - great advice. Happy hour drinks at half price was an unexpected bonus. Their restaurant was absolutely fantastic. Interesting menu, top quality local produce prepared... More
