The driveway & car park that is, not the price! When you are traveling on a motorbike a carpark on a steep incline is not what you like to see. Our host was very accommodating though & offered us a flatter parking alternative. Don't let the dated exterior fool you, the interior has been refurbished & is very neat &... More

We have stayed here previously & was great to get the same exceptional service. Rooms ready early & even a text message sent in regards to the weather that morning. Launceston had flash floods the day before, but the manager had everything organised. Rooms clean & comfortable beds. We had a continental breakfast included & this was of good standard... More

Balmoral on York is not pretending to be high end but it delivers, air conditioning, free parking, free internet, netflix, comfortable bed and a friendly manager/owner, not quite sure of his title. Apart from a dusty alarm clock, the room was very clean. Continental breakfast was all we needed, a bowl of cereal and some toast were included. Great location,... More

Outstanding customer service!!! Clean and large rooms. Would stay again for sure. I think it must have been the owner who chatted to us at brekkie - so friendly and informative. Included continental brekkie (cereal, toast, yoghurt) was enough to satisfy us.

The owner of this hotel is an absolute legend. As soon as my girlfriend and I walked in, he was so comforting. We had a room with Netflix, Apple TV and a very strong WIFI connection. We had breakfast at the hotel and the staff will do anything to make sure you're having a great experience. Staying at this hotel... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and found the room really comfortable with everything we needed in the room. It was a close and nice walk to town where there were plenty of restaurants and bars. Not that it's something we planned on but we needed a night in 1 night and the tv system was great, movies, sport and... More

Had a nice enough stay at the Balmoral, the room was fine and had all the necessities. The staff were really friendly too. Nothing stood out for me with this hotel, but it did meet all my needs and i had no problems.

Netflix was included so we could even catch up on "House of Cards"! This hotel does not pretend to be anything than excellent value for money in a great location. Breakfast was... More

Sometimes it is difficult to pinpoint why you have enjoyed a stay. So it is with the Balmoral. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable, it is conveniently situated for the CBD and an easy walk to the waterfront. Great breakfast and dinner in the hotel dining room. But I think it was the overall friendliness and helpfulness of all... More
