“Very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

Really enjoyed our two day stay in Hotel Charles. The rooms are really modern, we stayed in the spa suite which had a really nice spa in the window. We thought it was pretty cool that they converted the old hospital into a hotel and they had done a great job of re-inventing the interior.
Staff were helpful and the hotel is about a 10minute walk into the CBD. Would recommend :)

Although the rooms were lovely, modern and clean the hotel was very very noisy, I had to get up at 4am and was woken many many times with people yelling in the doorway, outside and everywhere else they could think of. I know the hotel has no control over how much noise people make but it just seemed this place was overly noisy. Surely if the hotel is not that full as it appeared, they could put people further apart to enable a decent sleep. Room on the 3rd floor, no view but that was fine not a priority.

We recently stayed at The Hotel Charles in Launceston. The rooms were modern, comfortable & spotlessly clean with everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. The staff were helpful & friendly. We ate breakfast at the hotel’s restaurant both mornings we were there & it was a reasonably priced, well catered continental buffet. There were plenty of places to eat nearby as well. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in Launceston.

Room Tip: If you stay on a Friday night or Saturday night you can get a voucher for $5.00 off breakfast at the...

We stayed at the hotel Charles only for one night and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodation and the service. I highly recommend this hotel if you need to stay 1 or 2 nights in Launceston as it is very good value for money.

Enjoyed my visit in just a standard room at 'The Charles'. Was a business trip just passing through and the Charles was exactly what I needed.

Room wasn't overly big but more than adequate, although good size bathroom and shower. Room was very well laid out and a very comfortable bed.

I had an Eastern facing room so had no view, but if you are looking for a view I am sure there are rooms higher up that would have great views. My visit was purely for business so wasnt a priority for me.

Had dinner at the restaurant which was excellent and reasonably priced. Service from the staff was excellent.

All in all - I enjoyed it and would return.

Good value, more of a business hotel than holiday venue but fine for our one night in Launceston, clean and with everything we needed. The huge 1970s-style bright orange swivel chair was a little too large for the modest space available in the room but this was only a minor issue and we would certainly stay here again.

We spent 2 great nights at hotel Charles . It was everything we hoped for, within walking distance of the city centre, lovely room, the bed was 5 star, room spacious, bit funky, just lovely. We ate in esca on both nights, lovely food, great service. Special mention to Emma , Sarina, and Kath. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel, wandered down to Aromas, a coffee shop, just across the road, great coffee, quick service.
