Room with adequate size for 3 pax. Beds are comfy. Room is clean, tidy and modern. The only gripe is about the bathroom. It has no shower doors so water splashed all over the floor outside the shower. There are also insufficient hooks. The toilet is a separate room so it is useful for other guests to use when one...

Great location for walking to the shops, restaurants and the Cataract Gorge. All the staff I met, including the cleaning crew,were very helpful and friendly making you feel they really cared about the guests even though they were extremely busy with a full hotel for the Launceston Cup. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay.

We have just spent two nights at this hotel. The hotel is situated within a short walk to the city centre, where there are a number of pubs and restaurants. The staff are lovely and very helpful. The hotel is an old building, but the rooms were spotlessly clean and when we required extra pillows there was no problem. We... More

Though this is an older hotel, it provides a great place to stay in Launceston. The staff were uniformly professional, friendly, and helpful. The room was spotless and very comfortable. Internet access is free, unlimited and extremely fast. Service in the restaurant was quick and efficient. The Gorge and the river cruises are just a short ride away and it's... More

We were looking for a reasonably priced hotel just for one night before we flew out of Launceston. Firstly the location is great - walking distance to pubs and shopping (not that there is much). Staff were so welcoming and friendly. For the price of room with included breakfast it was definitely worth it.

This is a fairly old hotel located close to the city centre. Positives include the consistently lovely front desk staff and the good value breakfast options. Unfortunately, the age of the property and the lack of sound proofing meant the room was noisy and a little uncomfortable for a business stay. I do need to credit the hotel though for... More

Staff were very friendly at all times when I dealt with them. The room was spotless and quite comfortable. Parking was convenient. The location is quite handy to the CBD and yet far enough away to avoid traffic noise etc. The restaurant was very nice, although a little overpriced. I would encourage others looking for accommodation around Launceston to look... More
