Room was very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. The only HUGE problem was that the key cards did not work efficiently. One did not work at all and the other one had to be put in and out about 20 times at varying speeds before it would work, every single time. SO if you want to get into... More

No complaints from us although the rooms will be better when refurbishment is completed. Price was reasonable so we were satisfied with our choice. Parking for guests at $6.00 per night seems a bit of a bad choice. I'm sure most patrons would rather pay $10.00 extra per night and be offered "free" parking. My pet hate is extra for... More

When a client told me that they had booked this hotel for a business trip to Launceston I was not expecting very much (in fact I was expecting an out of date motel with ghastly bedspreads) and I have to say I was nicely surprised by how modern the hotel was. I am not sure what some of the more... More

Great hotel to stay. Staff very helpful & accommodating. Room was neat Value for money. However the hotel was close to all teh shops & eating places but litte out of the way from UTAS. Buffet breakfast was the same every morning - no variety

Stayed at this hotel as we could not get a room at the Sebel which we had previously stayed at in Launceston. When we arrived at the Best Western we had to move rooms three times before they got it right. We asked for a queen room yet they kept sending us to a triple room (extra bed). The rooms... More

We purchased two nights here as a part of a 4.5 star wotif mystery deal. I honestly think that the 4.5 stars might be self-rated, as it doesn't even compare with real 4.5 star hotels we've stayed in. The accommodation is neat, clean and functional, but very basic. Close to everything, located in the heart of Launceston. Breakfast not included... More

We stay in hotels regularly as a couple and like a nice room, we had reservations about staying here initially but once we walked in we were both very happy. We had a Superior King room and it was lovely, everything you need and free WIFI. Staff were lovely and the service was good. We will be back.

We stayed at this hotel in Launceston on the very first night of our tour of Tasmania. The hotel is right in the center of the city close to restaurants etc.., We booked a queen bed room through Expedia, but when we arrived at the hotel we found out that the room given to us had 3 single beds. So,... More

Best thing about this hotel is the staff -- friendly, polite, efficient and extremely helpful. Perhaps management is slowly renovating and have started with the beds and bedding which were excellent -- no complaints at all. Good size TV and free WiFi. However the whole atmosphere is utilitarian with nothing comfortable, attractive or luxurious in the room or anywhere else... More

We stayed one night on a Friday there. Room was ok, breakfast was good, too. Nothing to complain. But there were people doing car racing on Friday night on the city roads nearby. The horrible loud noises didn't stop even after midnight. I asked the reception, seems they didn't have any idea about it. I am surprised that the police... More
