We stayed two nights here and found checkin easy and the staff friendly. Clean rooms very modern would stay again. It is situated within walking distance of the city centre and we enjoyed full use of all the nearby restaurants and cafes. Central to Tamar valley cataract gorge.

Wasn't great. The hotel room was pretty small, though the bathroom a good size..clean enough..and comfortable.. but drab, despite the groovy orange chair. And noisy, both inside and out. All night the air conditioning belted out it's hum..loudly.We originally thought this annoying noise was coming from the street but it was in fact traced to the air conditioning unit placed... More

A fantastic hotel that Launceston has to offer! Beautiful and comfortable room. I really enjoyed the extras such as the delicious Lipton Pyramid tea - very very nice. Thanks again for a great stay, I will be back again!

We only stayed here one night but found the room clean, the bed was so comfortable and the location was good. This hotel has free parking which was great. The only drawback was the reception staff, the lady that served us couldn't have been less interested in us and seemed eager to get rid of us. First impressions are do... More

I had to drive from Smithton to Hobart after a huge week of work and decided to stop here for the night after I booked my flight and Jetstar sent me a discount voucher. So I stayed here for the night for $100 and I tell you, it was worth every cent, in fact I would happily pay more. It’s... More

Recently returned from two nights at hotel Charles, lucky to get a deal through the entertainment book which included buffet breakfast. Hotel in great location to city centre, staff friendly upon check in. We had a room on the second floor no view, hallways long and dark. Room was suitable and comfortable apart from the couch and chairs. Heating/cooling was... More

This hotel is in a great location and walking distance to very good cafes and home ware shops. Its in an excellent location if your visiting someone at the hospital opposite. There is also ample free parking. The hotel is very clean. Dont go there if you're in Launceston for business. There is supposedly Wifi in the room but it... More

Formerly a hospital, the place has been worked out perfectly to make a good looking hotel. Comfortable and quiet. The long hallways at each floors are quite impressive. The restaurant is definitely above average too.

The room was very retro with bright orange furnishings. It was clean and had everything we needed. I particularly liked the bathroom and it was good to have a separate shower rather than the dated shower over bath. We didn't have a spectacular view, our room overlooked the building opposite. We also didn't have good quality sleep as at 3.50... More

I often stay here when visiting family in Tasmania. The location of the hotel is within walking distance to the CBD and very close to the Charles Street cafes and a decent supermarket. It sits on a decent rise and gets great views of Launceston if you have a North facing room. (most are not). It is right opposite the... More
