Spent only one night but enjoyed the newly renovated rooms. Courteous service. Dinner at the restaurant was superb. Highly recommended. Bathroom was clean. The soap and skin balm provided was an unknown brand to me but was first class.

I've stayed here several times, usually for work, but this trip was a night away with my husband. We booked a spa apartment, which was lovely and roomy and the spa very clean. The whole apartment was very clean and had everything we needed, including great pod coffee. Very comfy bed. I wasn't overly thrilled with the reception staff, they... More

Booked a family room and stepped into a foyer leading to 2 separate bedrooms. Each room had their own kitchenette, bathroom and lounge area. Modern bathroom and decor..comfortable king bed, spotlessly clean. Great service and the breakfast was delicious. Continental buffet plus you can order a hot breakfast with a great selection to choose from. Would highly recommend great value... More

A pleasant if somewhat impersonal 4star hotel. We stayed in a roomy studio room and were warm and comfortable. The restaurant was excellent and there were comfortable lounges. The staff were all pleasant and helpful. We appreciated the free parking but this was the only place we stayed at during a week in Tasmania that had a charge for wifi... More

Stayed at the Charles many times and this is the first time that I wasn't impressed. Thankfully, most of the lovely staff are still there, so no problem with check in etc. What has happened to the kitchenette facilities? The few pots and pans are stuffed into a small drawer, 2 knives 3 forks...just ridiculous. The dining table and chairs... More

Our good impression of this hotel started the minute we walked into reception where the staff were friendly, courteous and welcoming. We were made to feel like returning VIPs instead of first time visitors. The hotel was inviting wherever we went and the decor warm and interesting. A nice touch is the movement activated lighting as guests walk the hall... More

The hotel Charles had just been taken over by Mantra when I arrived. When I booked it had free wi if but with mantra take over means now $10 a day. They did honour what the website said at the time I booked. I also thought it said microwave in the room but I could see the spot where it... More

One of the better hotel in Launceston. Contemporary room and good size room. Very basic which I won't consider this a four star hotel. Kind of high price to pay for this room. The setback is that the hotel do not provide complimentary Wi-Fi, which is very normal in most hotels nowadays. Usually stay in big international group hotels which... More
