This place is a home away from home. love the breakfast, room service, lovely staff, and great location. Bed is comfortable and the room is quite. Can't hear any cars and great views (city view). Easy access to the shops, pubs, and cafes.

From check in to bar to meals the attention to client service was outstanding. The rooms were very comfortable and location only a few mins walk from city centre and pubs but very quiet to sleep. Buffet breakfast used fresh produce and had a wonderful flavour so fresh, not common in hotels. We will definitely stay here again.

Plenty of room and well looked after. We booked four nights at this hotel and were not disappointed. Located close to the city centre, it is close to pubs and restaurants. The rooms have been recently refurbished and the staff helpfull.

There is a restaurant onsite which serves breakfast as well as dinner. Nice firm beds, free wifi, free movies on the TV, wine glasses in the cupboard and a... More

We stayed 3 nights. Motel looks quite ordinary from outside but don't the let that sway you, as the rooms have been refurbished and are quite comfortable. Free wifi and movies.Had a lovely evening meal in the restaurant. Can have continental or hot breakfast which are reasonably priced . The reception and resturant staff were lovely. Handy to the cbd.

This was a 3.5/5 but the ranking got pushed to 3 rather than 4 on balance. Nice sized room and friendly service. A bit pricey compared to other hotels we enjoyed more on our trip, and the painted cinder block walls in the room give a university residence feel to it. The wi-fi was included in our room rate, but... More

This was our second trip to Tasmania commencing in Launceston and we again chose to stay at the Balmoral. As per our previous visit we found the hotel to be a great place to stay, friendly staff, spotlessly clean, plenty of parking and a great location. The Balmoral also does a wonderful breakfast that is always served with a smile... More

This hotel is very clean and modern inside. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We didn't needed to use our car as we could walk to the Gorge, shops and all popular eateries in Launceston. We chose the city view room, which also provides great views of Launceston.

What a great place to stay. We decided to stay here after researching on TripAdvisor. Located close to the CBD of Launceston with very friendly and proficient staff. Fabulous dinner and breakfast and very comfortable rooms.
