We can only speak most highly of this establishment. Booked by my wife as surprise for my 70th birthday, on one of their package offers, we were met by arguably the most helpful receptionist ever. Warm, friendly and helpful. A small "hiccup" with our room - nothing serious, saw my wife at reception again to sort out the problem. The... More

Stayed last Thursday at the Best Western Launceston Plus and was pleasantly surprised by the attentive nature of the staff in all aspects reception, housekeeping & the restaurant. The customer service was exceptional and the recent renovations have improved the product significantly. Would highly recommend to any business traveller.

I had booked the hotel as it was one of the few in Launceston that seemed to have direct shuttle service from the airport. It turns out it's easier to take a taxi but that's another story. We stayed two nights over three (we went to Cradle Mtn in the middle of our trip), and found it a pretty decent... More

Friendly staff, clean rooms, recently updated. Lots of parking, and lots of on site amenities (bar, restaurant etc.), really nice vibe to the place. Well laid out room with work desk and casual table as well as the basics. Very handy for a traveling rep. Easy walk to the CBD and attractions. I'll be back.

The rooms were ok but I called room service three times before having to leave a message. I got no response so concerned that the restaurant closed at 9pm I went done to eat at 8.30pm only to find it closing. When I asked why I hadn't had a response to my voice mail, I was told my volume must... More

Wouldn't chose this hotel for a holiday but fine for basic and cheap accommodation. It's located centrally in Launceston, so very convenient to get to the shops... And onsite parking at $6 per day was brilliant as we had a hire car.

Having stayed the best part of a week in Bicheno on our way from Hobart we made the choice to attend the DanceSport competition held at the Silverdome in Launceston. The choice to stay at the Best Western Plus at Launceston came about as a result of checking Lastminute.com on the web and then choosing a "Mystery" package which turned... More
