“Great staff - great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We made a mistake with our booking date. Not a problem for the staff at Hotel Charles!

Check in was easy, fast and a pleasant friendly experience. Checkout was just as efficient.

Our room was great. Bathroom huge. Everything worked. All recently refurbished. Clean, tidy, good facilities.

Window blinds are not good and do not shut out sun and lights.

The hotel is easily accessible. Parking right outside the door. Lifts work well and the hotel ambience is good.

Why stay anywhere else in Launceston? Great value for money.

Room Tip: We stayed in a King suite. Great in our opinion

My wife and I stayed two nights here as a break from Hobart. Hotel was just right for our purposes being comfortable and neat and really well located near the cafes in Charles Street and a short walk into town. If you want a short break from home in Melbourne or Hobart then just stay here and enjoy Launceston and the wineries, brilliant.

Room Tip: The cheap rooms are fine - no need to upgrade - save your money. The in house restaurant has good fo...

We had a good time at the hotel Charles. The rooms are big and comfy and the restaurant food and service were excellent. It's very central to all shopping in launceston. There is heaps of parking around the hotel as well

Very spacious and well decorated rooms, ideal for long stay with the kitchenette.Rooms are not totally darkened by the blinds, so eye mask might be helpful.
Amy on reception was lovely, helping us with room selection.
Bar downstairs is not a good design, as bar staff can't see people sitting in the lounge area.
Overall a lovely hotel with a luxurious feel.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street have a nice view to the hill opposite, even though you are looking over the...

What a pleasure it was to stay at the Charles. This place is unique. It's not like any other hotel we have ever stayed at. It's a modern decor and roomy. The staff were all friendly at reception and restaurant . It is about a kilometer from the cbd but has a sensational cafe across the road called the Aroma. Also a great pub about 200 meters away called Sporties. The bar and restaurant at the hotel were very good. Happy hour from 5 till 6 was good value. The food in the restaurant was terrific and reasonably priced. We stayed 3 nights and would certainly recommend this hotel to everyone.
