I find that when you book on line through a discount service you tend to get lower quality rooms. One hotel operator confirmed that this is the case. At the Balmoral all the rooms appeared to be much the same as ours. Positives: the rooms are large with plenty of room for tables, settee and chairs. Many times I have... More

Our group of 50 seniors stayed for 4 nights at the end of a 14 day Tasmania Tour - comfortable accommodation with excellent meals in private dining room. Hosts Sherryn & Trevor did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable, including unloading & delivering baggage. Great service from all staff & walking distance to many local attractions.

Location: close to CBD (which is quite easy to shop as its small and shops are close to each other), around 5 min walk downhill, and 10 min walk to Coles. Room: Delivers what their photo shows, comfy but... not very pretty, more home style. Sunset city view is pretty from the room. Wi-Fi is a bit unstable. Couch is... More

We were warned on enquiry, that the lift was not working as it was being refurbished - hence we received a discount on the already well priced accommodation. Our room was situated handily on the first level, so it was not too much trouble to carry our modest luggage up the stairs. The host is friendly and helpful. It's only... More

When we arrived the building was so underwhelming we felt like cancelling our booking. The lift was not working so we had to walk up to the 4th floor with our luggage (and a sore back). The stairwells looked like fire exits (one was filled with paint cans). The room, whilst clean, was decorated with modern furniture but still in... More

Thanks for your response. We advertised heavily with every major e-commerce provider (from May 2014, 3 months in advance of your stay) that we were installing a new lift between Aug-05 to Aug-31, as such we could only offer temporary stair use ! We reduced our rates by around $40-$50 per night and we are amazed that as one of... More

Stayed for one night - wouldn't rush back. We knew that the lift would be out of order, but they were also doing maintenance on their plumbing and were told the water would be brown when first ran through. Within minutes of checking in we had maintenance at our door basically demanding to come in and look at the taps... More

Hello and thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback. Whilst installing a new Elevator in August - we had a choice, close the business for 3 weeks or open and reduce our price (our prices are never this low, so note your comment on budget) and provide the best service we can to our burgeoning corporate market, knowing...

We booked a room at The Balmoral on York for an Anniversary night and was very disappointed. The entrance to the hotel is drab and once inside was met by a small reception and 'The Garden Restaurant" (where was the garden?)... our room was on the 2nd floor with a view of the carpark and quite average with extremely uncomfortable...

Thanks for your feedback.... I am currently in the USA and was gobsmacked to see your comments. Guests rave about our fives star quality bedding, as such I have a database of over 15 guests that have written to us requesting the design as they say it was the best night sleep they ever had.

Stayed 4 nights with hot breakfast included due to the lift being out of service (knew in advance). All the staff were friendly and helpful and the room very comfortable with the cooked breakfasts being freshly made and extremely tasty. The staff were always willing to help with ideas for places to visit and things to see and thanks to... More

This very sixties motel/hotel is set in the heart of Launceston. It is very comfortable, but no more than other facilities of this type. What sets it aside is the friendly staff and the great restaurant.

The friendly service on arrival was fantastic and we were made to feel very welcome. Room was quite spacious & very clean. Close to centre of town & fantastic position for a 10min walk to Aurora stadium for the football. Reception staff were more than happy to assist at any time. Strongly recommend & I would return
