I stopped here with my husband in May on my birthday. Stuff met us in lobby with a smile and we were pleased about the attitude. We were booking a room right on the spot in the evening, but we still managed to get a good room. When we entered room we were pleasantly surprised - nice funky cosy modern... More

It's ok accommodation and close to the hospital which is why I chose it, the price is to steep for what you get compared to others in Launceston. I found one of the ladies on the desk to be a little....... unpleasant.

Hotel Charles delivers on it's promise. Large well appointed rooms with a quality fit out giving it a better feel than a standard hotel room. Restaurant dinner was very nice and service couldn't be faulted. Overall a very good stay.

Situated 5 city blocks from the Launceston CBD, the former Private hospital has been revamped into a clean and reasonably well appointed hotel which is now part of the Mantra group. Good sized room with king sized beds. My bathroom was enormous. If you want a view from your room, ask for a room facing Charles Street as the lower... More

We were in Launceston for a night looking for a hotel suitable for a group booking and the Hotel Charles was recommended. It seems the shell of this large property was the old Launceston hospital – now converted into the Hotel Charles and apartments. Great idea. Reception is fairly ordinary – you park and look around for support – but... More

Paid top dollar for a small room with king bed, our room had a large wing back chair that was far too large for the room, unable to negotiate way around the bed without bumping into it, moved it to the foot of bed but then unable to access wardrobe,not needed except to cover up stained carpet where it was...

This hotel has a good feel downstairs with a nice fire feature and relaxed ambience. It appears that the restaurant is not simply a convenient necessity ... Some thought predates the Mantra branding. The rooms have a 70s flavour with orange decor yet modern feel. Not my taste but handy price tag. Lots of rooms here - I can't imagine... More

We booked this hotel last minute and chose it based on comparing prices on both Trivago and Hotelscombined. The price was perfect and the accommodation itself was fine. The beds were comfy and the remodeling of the hotel has been done well. As a former Launceston resident it was heartening to see the old hospital building bought back to life.... More

I have just stayed at the Mantra Charles in an emergency situation as my daughter was undergoing surgery which was unexpected. I stayed at the Charles as it was close to the hospital. The staff could have not been more understanding or helpful, they made a room up for us as a twin at the last minute which is what... More
