We have just spent 2 nights at the Balmoral, our room was clean, comfortable and spacious with a comfortable lounge area. The staff were friendly and the hotel was just a very short distance from the main shopping area. We would highly recommend it.

We've stayed here before and been happy, so we tried again recently. We chose a room overlooking the city and this came with a cooked breakfast. Rooms are refurbished - clean, comfortable and plenty of space (for a hotel room). The new lift is good (the old one made concerning noises!) We had a good night - no noise, bed... More

It's actually a motel so it is quite value for money. The staff were friendly and helpful with our queries. The rooms are spacious, neat and equipped with basic necessities. The building and interior may look a little old but it did not present any problems; in fact, it made us feel at home. It is quite conveniently located as... More

Stayed one night at the Balmoral on York. Great spot for access to the Princess Theatre & Launceston CBD. Very reasonable rate, which included continental breakfast, (a full breakfast could be had for a small extra fee). Free onsite parking provided for guests, which is great because most things are within easy walking distance. The management & staff were all... More

We stayed in this hotel for 5 days in October, largely based on Trip Advisor reviews. The hotel is older but very clean and comfortable and the location is great. The staff were really helpful and nothing was too much trouble. It is very close to the city centre. Would happily stay here again

We stayed here 3 years ago and didn't consider anywhere else for this trip. We stayed for 5 nights while exploring the area at our leisure. The room was spacious, clean, with a fantastic pillow top topper on the bed and free Wi-Fi as well. We had breakfast most mornings. I can recommend the omelettes! Trevor and his staff were... More
