Great location, great welcome and excellent attention to detail. The room was very well equipped and nothing was done in halves. Big tv, heat pump, superb beds and little things like tooth brush and razor, no one else does that. The food in the restaurant was great and the duck was perfectly cooked. Very friendly and personal service. I have... More

It has been some years since we stayed at the Colonial and we were quite disappointed with how this hotel has not been kept updated. Our room had been refurbished at some stage but the standard was poor. The bed was not overly comfortable and neither my wife or I had a good nights sleep and there was noise from... More

Location very good - could walk to most attractions in the city. Lovely view from balcony. Quiet at night with peaceful sleep. Bed comfortable. Breakfast had a large range of options and serviced in a characterful room by a very welcoming woman. Log fire in the lounge was good. Reception staff polite and helpful. Electric kettle does not fit under... More

An excellent location for shopping, airport distance a definite plus. Street appeal presents colonial charm and well cared for garden surrounds. Reception area encompasses warmth and intimacy as once glances at an open, inviting fire on a chilly day. A glass of red, a paper to read as one watches the flickering flames, provides intimate comfort. I stayed two nights,... More

One of life's mysteries is how hotels achieve their star ratings. This has 4.5 stars but my "standard" room was definitely below standard. Located at the end of a dark tunnel its view was of the parking area and another building. One large bed plus one single bed would have been better as just one large bed and some room... More

We stayed last night in tasmania.We found the front part of the hotel charming and heritage as per the website . But unfortunately our room was in the section at the back that was added in the seventies and was very dated decor and old mouldy bathroom not what I expected for 4 stars . The staff were lovely and... More

We stayed one night with family in two rooms. Very comfortable, good breakfast and good value. Recommended. Our only problem was a nearby burglar alarm going off at 1:00am for 20 minutes or so! This was our first stay at the Colonial for many years and we will return.

If you're looking for somewhere a bit different with an old worldly feel then this may be the place for you. Featuring a wide array of rooms and apartments and an excellent restaurant and bar its a wonderful self contained hotel. It feels a little old English in style and this becomes immediately apparent with the lovely timber dado paneling,... More

Great place to stay if visiting Launceston. It was close to the CBD, good standard of rooms that were clean, had great service from friendly staff. Had a great meal in their lovely little bar & restaurant which had and a open fire. Perfect for the chilly Tassie afternoons and nights! Will definitely be back again to stay when I... More
