Great staff, very friendly. Amenities are good also. Biggest downfall though is they DO book sporting teams and the motel is not monitored after 7 or 8. Therefore the noise I have and am experiencing escalates once the motel is unattended. Suggest you ask are there any "teams" there during your proposed booking period.

My wife and I fly to Tassie at least once each year, pick up a hire car from either Hobart or Launceston airport, and scream around (well, old fold folk style :-) for 10 -14 days, revisiting favourite locations and some new ones. We often have one or two family guests with us, sometimes young, sometimes old, and we always... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in a 3 bed villa. Very comfortable lodgings and perfect as a base for day trips from Launceston. Self contained kitchen was good for self cooked breakfasts and with Coles right across the road very convenient to stock up with fresh bread and milk daily. Very welcoming reception and helpful with any local insight.... More

We arrived Launceston at night. Searched from Internet and arrived to the motel. We got a motel suite which is a little bit small. You should book a bigger room if you have more luggage. Bed is comfortable and the room facility is good. Staff is friendly. There is a big shopping center nearby and it operates till late night.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and we are pleased you enjoyed your short stay. The motels are great for an overnight stay. Our studios are definitely a better option if you require more space and the price difference is very minimal. We hope to see you again when you are next in Launceston. Kind Regards Management.

This place has a few room options but the 3 bedroom unit we were in had an awful brown and orange colour scheme throughout and felt really outdated. It was pretty funny actually. It was ok for a night, and you wouldn't have to worry about kids running amok - it wasn't overly clean. Great kitchen facilities if you want... More

We had trouble finding a place to stay in Launceston as most places were full and chose Elphin because it offered self-contained accomodation at a mid range price and was not too far from the city centre. The staff were friendly and helpful. The apartment had everything we needed and was clean. It had more rooms than we needed but... More

We stayed in a three bedroom apartment which was neat, clean and spacious. Good bathroom with a spa bath as well, and the kitchen, dining and lounge areas were all very usable for a family of four. Location wise it's great - an easy walk from City Park and central Launceston. As other reviewers have indicated, there is a Coles... More

We had 2 nights in Elphin Villas. Conveniently situated for access to a nearby large Coles supermarket and Off Licence as well as the town and although reasonably well equipped we felt the living accommodation was tired and in need of a refresh, especially the sofa. The eating arrangement was somewhat functional. We had an upstairs apartment which had no... More

Stayed one night recently on a trip to Tas. Room were reasonably modern. The upstairs unit was a tad cramped with a small kitchenette and tiny combined dining and lounge area. Bedroom was adequate and bathroom large and modern. I did happen to see the lay out of the downstairs unit which was larger and had access to an outside... More
