When booking the hotel, we didn't know it has been a hospital in the former life. The renovations are fantastic and impressive on the transformation but in the end, it's still looks and feels like a hospital. Even the sliding front doors leads you to the nurses station (front desk) and the uniforms look like nurses uniforms (maybe it's the... More

This is a great wheelie friendly hotel despite being up a hill. The disabled access room and bathrooms are large enough for both manual and powerchairs. The shower has a pull down seat if you need it and the mirror, sink etc are all low enough. The bed is a little high but depending on the chair this may not... More

This hotel is a part of an old hospital complex that has been fully renovated. As I arrived I was greeted with a reception area that was mayhem with people everywhere. I was surprised and impressed to be checked in 5 mins later.My room was very large and extremely modern. It had all you would want including a room safe.... More

Our family of four (2 adults and 2 young children) commenced our first trip to Tasmania in h01. ever upon arriving in Launceston by air and hiring a car (unlimited Kms) from the airport. We went straight to Hotel Charles. Apparently the hotel was a hospital in yester-year, although there was no way we could tell, not that we looked... More

. We booked this based on the photo of the hotel on the internet, assuming that most rooms would have views, as it was at the top of a hill.. In fact a large proportion of what you see in the photos are actually private apartments and many of the actual hotel rooms look out the back towards an embankment... More

We stayed in a studio apartment which was new, clean and well fitted out. The kitchen was well fitted out, and the bathroom was really large and extremely nicely fitted out. Comfortable bed too! The hotel is in a nice quiet location but is close to some good restaurants (walking distance) and does a great breakfast in-house as well. Parking... More

I was a bit worried that this would be a let-down, having read some of the reviews. It wasn't. My only whinge is that it was a bit far from the city centre for my mobility challenged husband to walk. That is not a fault of the hotel! The room was great - large and airy and well appointed. Huge... More

We spend 2 night in Hotel Charles. The Room is Clean and Quiet and the price is reasonable. There is a parking just down stairs and it was free of charge, but the car park need to share with the office nearby. I take around 5 mins drive to the city area, the location is great!

It is housed in an imposing modern art deco building on the top of a rise. The rooms are very modern and tastefully furnished. White with a splash of autumn colours. Nice blinds. Good bathroom. Nice little area for tea/coffee making. Very clean. A joy to stay in. The restaurant is modern, bright and tastefully decorated. Nice wide hallways. It... More
