Lovely hotel, room clean with everything you would need , staff helpful, breakfast choice both cold and cooked was good, set up for the day. The view was lovely looking down to the town, but if leaving the car at hotel the walk back up the hill was a challenge, but parking down the hill was never a problem

Staid here for 5 days. What a great setup. We were in the new building, clean modern, spacious. One of the best places I stayed while visiting TAS. Chef and the lady who worked to breakfast was super friendly and helpful. Plenty of parking, great view of the mountain and best of all free WiFi!

We have stayed here 3 times over the last 12 months. We enjoyed the location and found the rooms and bathroom to be very comfartable with modern furnishings and fittings. No problems with the room other than the one of the doors was a bit tricky to lock. However, it wasnt a big deal, just had to make sure it... More

If you are the last the check in you don't get the room you book they just put you where they want. We booked a king and a trundle we didn't get the trundle just a king not good for 2 adult women. I would give the hotel a miss. Better hotels to stay in Launceston for the same price.

Stayed one night at Areca. Staff were friendly and hospitable, the room was nice enough but hardly boutique. Small and crowded with dated, scuffed furniture, stained carpet and an empty fridge (apart from long-life milk). Cheap tea bags and mismatched floral crockery.
