“Good sized rooms, below average restaurant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Had a good stay in the main hotel, however after using the restaurant my experience changed from positive to negative.
The food I was served in the restaurant was of poor quality & bland. I'm afraid after being recommended this restaurant in the Clarion city park grand, I cannot. This soured my time throughout my two day stay. I recommend sampling other delights in town, as the Hotel (which is of a reasonable standard) is in close proximity of town.
This review is fore the restaurant mainly, but I cannot find a restaurant link on trip advisor.

Room Tip: Don't use the in house restaurant.

I had a lovely stay at the clarion,the room was lovely,I had the spa suite and the spa was fantastic!
The staff were very helpful,the location was excellent.
The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable,I especially enjoyed being able to open the window!
I didn't eat at the restaurant,so cannot comment on that,it was very short walking distance into the city with lots of good restaurants to choose from.

Room Tip: stay in the stables!

My partner and I stayed here in Feb 2013. The staff were outstanding. The hotel was modern, clean and in a perfect location.

We stayed in a spa room which had to be one of the largests rooms we have stayed in.

Breakfast was very good

We were highly delighted at the standard of accommodation in our spa room in the Stables block. Spacious, very clean, fresh and modern interior. Well equipped. Large flat screen TV and tea/coffee etc. No noise from the gym, car park or the street nearby. After staying at some very high priced but low quality B&B's in Tassie, this hotel made a very welcome change. A cooked breakfast as standard would have almost made it perfect.

Room Tip: Room 55 has a spa bath and extra dormer window. No lift in stable block and this room is on the firs...

After reading the reviews I expected much more, particularly for the price. We stayed in one of the spa suites but, be warned, they are not all the same, ours being considerably smaller than the one next door. Indeed it was hard to bring bags into the room as the access was blocked by the chair at the desk. That after carrying them up stairs. No lift, no porter. The bed was uncomfortably soft and very poorly made, with the bottom sheet very rumpled. In fact we had to remake the bed ourselves. The location is fine but the main building uninspiring. A hotel with no bar???? We arrived hot after a long day and were desperately keen to get a good draft beer. Only a $7.50 bottle in the mini bar available. As I said, disappointing. #2 in Launie?? I don't think so.

My husband and I stayed one night, the lady at reception was very nice and efficient. We had a spa room in the stables section.The room was large, with a very comfortable bed. The Austar was a great addition!! Good sized corner spa, slippers and dressing gowns, room and bathroom cleaned very well!! Very reasonably priced, centrally located, we will defiantly stay here again!

Great central location with friendly service. We must have been upgraded because the large renovated room we stayed in was worth more than the $140/night we paid. The room was made up every day as well. We gave them a call after looking on wotif.com and they beat those prices. We'll be staying there again next time.
