I recently stayed 2 nights as a sole traveller at Balmoral on York and I enjoyed my stay. Very central to town, one block away. Rooms were very neat, beds were comfortable, the sheets high quality. Felt safe, parking facility available too. Staff and owners very helpful and friendly. I would recommend a stay and I will be returning.

Absolutely what you would expect. Clean, value for money, pretty central accommodation with friendly staff who provide good customer service. Easily located within 5 minutes walk of pretty much every decent place in launceston. Perfectly comfortable rooms that are bang on for value

The Balmoral on York is unpretentious from outside, but excellent inside. The staff give the friendliest welcome imaginable and the rooms (ours at least) are very spacious and well-appointed, The price is probably the best in Launceston and this hotel is the closest to the CBD. There is no extra charge for parking, wi-fi or cable TV.

If you come by car, you can park in the backyard (no additional charge applied). The location is very convenient as well - the place is easy to reach on foot and also by car. The staff is really...

To coin an old phrase, this accommodation 'punches well above its weight' when compared to some of the top end of town hotels - the friendliness and service provided by the staff during our two night stay is something that is rarely found in other places. In fact, Trevor and the team went way above the call of duty when... More

Great location, excellent value, clean comfortable room with a beautiful city view, convenient parking, free wifi and pay tv and delicious breakfast, however what we were most impressed by during our recent stay at Balmoral on York was the outstanding customer service.

I arrived at the hotel earlier than the official check-in time 12pm and was given a room right away, which was perfect for me as I was so tired and sleepy from the overnight flight. The furnishing in the room was simple and not as modern as I thought, but it was very clean and comfortable. Hotel staff were all... More

We stayed here in a Supreme Room with Residential Views, and it was our cheapest 4-star stay during our Tasmania trip. It turned out to be good value as the car parking was free and it was a good walking distance to the Launceston CBD. The rooms are clean, have cable TV and sensor key locks. The "residential views" basically... More
