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

I stayed at Hotel Charles for business. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The room was huge and comfortable. The LAN connection made using my laptop easy, the free wifi was a nice touch if not a little tricky to configure. The restaurant is excellent and I can recommend the duck. I will be back to stay again.

I have stayed here on several occasions and it has never disappointed. The location is great and the hotel is really good value. The rooms are large enough and the bathrooms a very generous size. Comfortable bed and pillows and a neat workbench for tea and coffee. Free parking for the rental car and free in room wi fi. The... More

We were in Launceston for an Easter Wedding. Booked 3 nights at the Hotel Charles and was delighted with my choice. Tasteful entrance with a trendy but very usable lobby. Lots of space to relax and read the plentiful newspapers and mags. Complimentary tea and coffee, warming fire and friendly drinks service available but not pushed. The staff were friendly,... More

We were surprised by how large the corridors were in this hotel . It's not something you normally see. We had two adjoining rooms which were generous in size and well appointed. We took a short walk to a fruit shop and discovered a pub and a couple of restaurants on the way. I also noticed it close proximity to... More

Fantastic stay during my honeymoon. Room is quiet and neat. Location is great. We asked for slippers from the receptions, and guess what! They delivered them, together with two instant noodles & chopsticks! What a bonus haha. If you stay here you will have to try the restaurant downstairs. Both dinner and breakfast are fantastic! Definitely recommend it to anyone... More

I was upgraded (thanks!) to an exec suite (big!) and this had a large bathroom inc bath, a kitchenette with coffee maker (they even provide fresh milk 300ml), a good desk for work purposes, ample storage and a comfy bed. There was a couch also, FREE WIFI and a good room service menu. It's a little further to walk into... More

Hotel Charles was recommended to us whilst travelling around Tasmania. We wanted somewhere nice to spend our last night in Launceston before flying home and we weren't disappointed! From Check-In to Check-Out, our experience here was fabulous and affordable. Our King Room was spacious, clean, comfortable (the most comfy bed & pillows) and bright! The décor verges on 'groovy' and... More
