“Perfect for the Corporate Traveller”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2011

I recently stayed here as our company has just started travelling to Launceston. I was delighted by the two nights I spent, rooms were bright and comfortable, had a good size working desk, king size bed and free internet was defiantly a plus. I have to say that the staff were fantastic too, extremely friendly and welcoming which made a nice change from the big corporate hotels in Melbourne where we normally stay. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone was smiling! Great location right in the middle of town , it will certainly be our first choice when travelling to Launceston in the future.

We stayed for one night in February, 2011. The pre-booking, arrival and service provided were all a very pleasant experience. The room was very clean and quite comfortable and the bed provided us a great night sleep. The food in the restaurant was of the highest standard, well served and delicious to devour. The checking out was also pleasantly dealt with. I would certainly recommend the Mercure - Launceston to any-one who wishes to listen. Thanks for an great stay.

Only problem was with dining - entree stated on menu was not what was provided, which proved inedible (overcooked duck). This item was provided free, but did let down the whole dining experience, when one expected duck breast and overcooked duck confeit was served without explanation. Also our restaurant booking made by phone with reception was not passed on to restaurant, although we were accommodated without any problems. All over a good stay, with just a few bumps! I would probably stay at the Mercure Launceston again.

We had nice spacey clean room. It is a small town – the hotel is close to shops etc... There is free parking available for hotel guests and flat screen televisions in the room. The bathroom has a shower screen so there is not the smell of damp shower curtains you get with some hotels. The room wasn’t hoovered/swept when housekeeping was done. There is a nice Italian restaurant close by called La Cantina.

I've been coming to this hotel since 2005 when the renovation took place. I always choose it because of it's proximity to the city centre, modern amenities and value for money. It has everything I need and I'm quite fussy! My only criticism is that the rooms can get extremely hot in the summer, so it's best to ask for an air conditioned one!
