A fantastic surprise - I was told I was staying in an old hospital ..... in Launceston!!! From walking into reception I could see that I was going to be impressed! ..... and I was!!! The rooms were comfortable, a little small, and quiet. The restaurant food was VERY good! A great menu & service! I definitely like to stay... More

Recently renovated from the old South Launceston hospital, the design is beautiful - modern, spacious and comfortable with views over the city. Location is a half hour walk to the city but a pleasant walk. Bathroom is modern, clearn and well-designed.

We stayed in a standard room on the first floor with no view. The room was big enough, clean and very modern with splashes of orange throughout. Bathroom was great - very spacious. To me, the hotel still has a hospital feel about it despite its amazing transformation but I'd probably stay here again. I read somewhere that the hotel... More

I stay here frequently on business trips. The hotel rooms are very quiet, clean and modern Plenty of car parking available However, last night I had dinner at the restaurant and was very disappointed. They advertise a special steak offer with free glass of wine After a long day on the road this sounded very inviting. I usually order steak... More

This hotel has everything going for it, comfortable room, very clean and inviting, friendly helpful staff and modern restaurant with interesting and appetising menu. Unfortunately all this was spoilt for me as I was kept awake for most of the night by the extremely loud air conditioning. This was not the air conditioning unit in my room but the central... More

I cannot fault the service in this hotel. From the moment you enter (but particularly in the restaurant), people are lovely, welcoming and warm. The hotel appears to be new, everything is done in a modern style. Great food too, I had a very good 29$ steak and wine deal downstairs. Perfectly cooked. The only faults (and these are very...

Like it's sister hotel in Hobart, the Hotel Charles provides a reliable experience and the food is terrific. Not much more to be said other than I usually choose to stay here every time I come to Launceston!

We had a 2 night stay in Hotel Charles a few days ago and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The room was large, clean and comfortable. Had a wonderful night's sleep in a huge King size bed awaking to tackle another day's sightseeing. We found the staff particularly friendly and very helpful and the food was delicious both at breakfast time... More

The Hotel Charles isn't your standard bland rep hotel. It has been converted from a hospital. The hotel has been well designed - the attention to detail is appreciated. The rooms are on the small side of things. There is free wifi in the hotel rooms and free parking outside of the hotel.
