“Home away from home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2009

The reception of the hotel from the time of booking over the phone was very warm and welcoming. Our family did not expect much considering it has a rating of 3. We arrived on Christmas Day and were exhausted having slept only 2 1/2 hours the night before. Having noticed our condition, the hotel manager directed us to our room to have a much needed sleep and offered to sort our the paper work later that day. Although our room could do with some upgrading, it was sufficient for what we required over our two days stay. We received a type of service that is unmatched by any standard. Our children felt at home and enjoyed the simple yet secured environment. We did not mind that the motel not being in the town centre. We knew the shops would be closed on Christmas Day and we had a car to go around town anyway. The big plus was that there was a grocery store 200 metres away that was open on Christmas Day where we were able to get all the supplies that we needed.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2007

We nearly left after being given keys to an uncleaned family room, but the staff were so apologetic we stayed. The other apartment was 3 star only, clean but tired and could use an all over decor refresh. But the beds were comfortable and the lounge sittable. The garden beds needed a bit of a spruce up.
The restaurant whislt the service and atmosphere was good, the food was really only equal to take away.
A bit of out of the way for those wanting to stay close to Launceston in town, we were in the suburbs it seemed. But it was fine for a few nights stay with a family.
Clean and basically comfortable with lovely staff.
The manager was very helpful in trying to find us last minute accomodation for us New Years in Hobart when our booked accomodation was cancelled the last minute !
