“Value for Money Great View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2011

This place is run by a family, father and son see to reception and mother is the cook. Restaurant food is excellent and well priced. The view is wonderful over Launceston. Free internet is a bonus. $105 per night was value for money. Good size room with Queen bed and most comfortable. Very clean. Windows can be left open with fly screens in so plenty of fresh air. Parking right outside the room. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. There are family suites and plenty for the kids to do. Great playground and very safe. Games room for the older kids.

We booked this hotel through wot-if (as we often do), as it was the only place available for the night we wanted. We discovered later that this was because the V8s were in town the next day...
The rooms are a little dated. But the room we had was spacious (Queen bed, single bed, table, large bathroom) and had a deck. Best of all, for a longer holiday, it came with a microwave! So we could actually prepare some food in-room and not eat out for once! Another bonus was the free in room wi-fi, this is the only place we stayed in Australia that had it.
The pool and spa were not quite warm enough, but were pleasant, and it was a treat to sit in the spa and watch the wallabies roaming the playground in the evening.
Right on a main road and above the motorway, we were expecting more noise than we got, and we slept quite well. Its a fair way out of town, but still only 10 minutes drive to the city.
The free breakfast was another plus. The food was basic, but enough to get you started.

We arrived at Launcesto Airport on a Sunday night at 9pm without a hotel reservation. This was definitely a mistake! So we were very lucky that we found this place at 22h15 with someone still receiving us. The staff was extremely friendly. We had an apartment which was divided on 2 floors: upper floor kitchenette, bathroom, living room. Down a squeaky stair led to the lower floor with 2 bedrooms, 1 with a queen-size double bed and the other (small) room had a single bed and 2 bunk beds. No heating in the small room!
We had nice views and it was relatively quiet. Breakfast was nothing fancy, but we had a nice dinner at the City Lights Restaurant (of course not at 10pm! It was the second night.)
Well located, a short drive from the city centre. They have free wi-fi internet, but it never worked during our stay. Nice place, I can recommend it.

The Village Motor Inn is conveniently located a stone's throw away from one of the hearts of Tasmania, Launceston. The apartment we stayed in was warm and inviting; there were 2 rooms, one heated and the other with heated beds, which was a very nice haven from the cold outside. The kitchen was well-stocked with clean utensil. We stayed for 2 nights at the Village Motor Inn; on the final day of our stay, my daughter left behind her mobile phone in the apartment. She didn't realize the loss until we were at the Launceston Airport. By then it was too late to travel back to retrieve it. I called the Village Motor Inn and spoke to Steven. He was empathetic of our plight, and assured us that he'll look for the phone. A few hours later, he confirmed that the phone was found. Since we're already at the Melbourne Airport, leaving for S'pore soon, I asked for the phone to be shipped back to us. Steven again assured us that he'll do that. 2 weeks later, I received my daughter's mobile phone. Steven even had the shipping charges waived. We are very delighted to receive phone. Thanks to Steven and the folks at Village Motor Inn! We had a pleasant time at the Village Family Motor Inn and we highly recommend it.

As a business person visiting this city every second week throughout the year for the past 14 years, the Village Family Motor Inn has provided me with clean, comfortable and convenient accommodation for all this time. With only a few minutes travel to the Central Business District of Launceston, this institution has been a boon to me in my busy schedule. Highly recommended for those people on the go.

Having arrived in Launceston late and without any booked accomodation, my partner and I took a punt on the Village Family Inn and we were pleasantly surprised. The staff were extremely friendly and accomodating. The rooms were spacious, clean, with a retro-cool decor and a splendid view of the lovely city of Launceston... I loved the bar too, it greeted us with a warm smile and a friendly scotch in a cozy setting... At the restaurant, I highly recommend the steak, an absolute must! ... I would definately return to The Village Family Motor Inn, perhaps next time with the family in tow... I know they'd love it too, with plenty to keep the kids entertained including heated pool/spa, billiards and arcade games... Two big thumbs up & high-fives all-round!

I have been coming to the Village for a while now and I always get the same friendly service and clean comfortable rooms. The restaurant also does delicious great valued meals with a nice view overlooking the Launceston. Its my home away from home.
