Recently stayed in launceston at this hotel on our Tasmanian tour. Selected a superior room which had a street frontage and views over city of launceston, if we returned would select a rear room as the traffic noise meant you could not open window due to warm weather, room also had air conditioner. Room very large and comfortable bed, television... More

We booked in at Balmoral on York for our first night in Tasmania. We liked the hotel so much when we checked out the next morning we booked ahead for our last night in Tasmania so we wouldn't miss out. The rooms were a good size, had everything you need (including a comfy leather lounge) and very clean. They even... More

Balmoral on York is a simple hotel that ticks all the boxes for those who aren't after anything flashy, but want to be very comfortable and well looked after. Our room had been recently updated with a nice bed, flat screen TV and clean ensuite. Even better, our included breakfast was huge and delicious! We were also happy to have... More

Trevor needs to be touring the country demonstrating that you don't need expensive furnishings for top quality accom. He and his small team are very, very good, and other establishments should take note of how they do it. Good rooms, good bench space, quiet air con, power points on bench tops, clean bathrooms, great WiFi, excellent breakfast, friendly and helpful... More

Trevor and all front staff were happy to help and very accommodating. Off-street parking provided and a restaurant on-site that was good. There is nothing fancy about this hotel and at first glance you may think it’s dated. But the furniture in our room had been updated (Room 11), was modern and looked very nice. It was clean, had AC... More

From the exterior it appears to be another dated cookie-cutter 3 star hotel, but everything from the reception staff to the room to the restaurant was well above average. From the reviews and the hotel's website you'd think this was a smaller, boutique style hotel, but it is relatively large, and has a convenient location on the edge of Launceston's... More

Really pleasant staff, great breakfast, and clean rooms. Add to that mix a good location (or at least it seemed so to us!). We were only in town for the night at the end of a six day Tasmania trip and had dinner nearby at the Black Cow Bistro. Would stay again.

The owners are great people who made sure that we had everything that we needed. The rooms were great. Very clean, comfy great beds and my benchmark for a hotel, great... More

Must say a huge thankyou to Trevor and his team for making our holiday extra special. Travelling with two small kids (1 and 3 year old) is never easy but the welcome we received was genuine, friendly and well above the standards I've received in many 5 star hotels! Beds were really comfy and rooms impeccably clean... I even checked... More

Recommended by a friend, who is rather particular! Great location, clean, large rooms with comfy bed; great breakfast; but most of all exceptional service by staff across my trip, from front office, to restaurant, to housekeeping. Excellent value for money!
