We booked this hotel sight unseen and felt quite disappointed when we arrived.
Although the location is fantastic the property needs significant investment and more discerning and engaged management to bring it up to the aesthetic and functional expectations of guests. Although we stayed in Launceston during a busy time of the year the hotel had loads of vacancies and was very quiet..
The room we booked was comfortable and we all slept well. However there was a very stale smell in the room which was off-putting. Most of the outside doors we covered in a film of dust and the grounds were depressing. The bathroom was functional but it was hard to adjust the taps. It was good to be able to make your own tea and coffee and we were pleased that there was a small table in the room.
I probably wouldn't stay here again because for not much more money you can stay somewhere much better and more attractive. Unfortunately I feel that Park-lane needs an over haul of its facilities and sound management to get it into shape.
If you are on a tight budget and want to be somewhere central then Parklane will be fine, Across the road is a great park with play facilities for kids and some monkeys, you will also find the design museum in the park which has a great assortment of gifts to buy by local artists.
