This was incredible service for the cost. Rooms were not dated, although there was minor ware and tear (which can be expected) it was very clean and decorated well. I am very impressed with the fact that breakfast was fully included, and it wasn't just cereal- it was the whole buffet! This barely ever happens without additional charge, and it... More

Stayed here with 2 kids. As they did not have our room ready they upgraded us to a suite with a separate lounge room and bathroom. No swimming pool attached to this hotel and they charge for car parking. The restaurant's are both great for food. Right in the city so perfect location for walking distance.

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they had booked this hotel for a business trip to Launceston I was not expecting very much (in fact I was expecting an out of date motel with ghastly bedspreads) and I have to say I was nicely surprised by how modern the hotel was.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.
