We booked this hotel for the last night of our week in Tasmania and wish we had stayed here longer. Location is excellent for exploring Launceston and the view from our room was lovely. Room was spacious and extremely clean and comfortable - we were actually quite surprised at how good it was after reading a few negative reviews. A... More

We stayed here for one night after arriving in Tasmania and it had everything we needed at a great price. The location was convenient, the room was huge and the furniture was comfortable. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was lovely and we really appreciated the free parking and wifi. We will definitely stay... More

Balmoral on York is ideally located for access to the airport or to the attractions of Launceston After parking in the free off road car park we were welcomed by the receptionist and quickly allocated our room. Access was via a lift - a very welcome feature if you are elderly. Our room was well equipped, pleasant without being ostentatious,... More

Stayed here recently for one night, and was happy with our choice. Walking distance to everything, nice friendly staff, and a continental breakfast included! Hotel is quite old, but very clean and comfortable, would definately stay here again, very resonably priced.

Good clean accommodation with big rooms. Comfortable beds, some rooms with microwave. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was great and the $7 upgrade to a cooked one well worth it. Due to (as normal it seems in Tassie) everywhere we tried to book for dinner was booked out at reasonable eating times, we decided to eat at the hotel... More

I stayed here for 2 nights before heading to the Bay of Fires and again for another night after returning. I received a warm and friendly welcome and check in was quick and easy. I booked a city view balcony room and was expecting a small balcony but it was quite spacious with a table and chairs. It was lovely... More

We arrived Launceston two days before Christmas and have expected it will be a dead town by Christmas Eve since most shops would be closed for the holidays. Took us a while to decide which hotel to stay as there were many options. Once again, criteria during this festive season, besides the complimentary WIFI and parking, is complimentary movies on...

Very basic accommodation. After relying on reviews had a most unfortunate few days here. It is about one grade up from a back-packers standard. The advertised award for the restaurant was pure fantasy as the food was basic. Steep hill position so unsuitable for many travellers. In a word disappointing and reviews were misleading.

Stayed here for 4nights, in a lovely room with great views. The staff were all superb, friendly, helpful and efficient. The restaurant food was delicious. Lovely walk to town, close and I felt safe walking back to the hotel at night too. Excellent option for people coming to Launceston.
