“Convenient to city and modern with comfy bed!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2011

I must admit that visiting this Hotel for the first time was a bit daunting as the last time i had walked through the doors it was the hospital. Pleasant surprise - it has been fitted out very nicely. Reception area gives you sneak peaks into restaurant and lounge area - both very inviting. Our room was a studio with kitchenette, king-size comfy bed, large and quality appointed bathroom and trendy chair (which was comfy to sit in but constantly in the way of access to the wardrobe/balcony door). Our room didnt have a fantastic view but it wasnt bad looking to the hills of West Launceston with all the lovely weatherboard houses. The 'balcony' was very small but at least it means you can get some fresh air and check out the weather conditions before venturing out for the day. We stayed here for 4 nights and found the first three extremely comfortable and pleasant, however our last night was a Friday night and we had a very noisy group next door - obviously visitors from other rooms all gathered in the room next to us - as we had a very early flight out the following morning we phoned reception to ask if they could ask them to quieten down. Reception dealt with the situation immediately and even phoned back to advise us that the guests said they were going out for the night and were sorry.... Something else that hadnt bothered us too much until the continual door closing next door is that the doors do bang shut very loudly and can disturb you from many rooms away. Maybe they could look at installing an extra door on the corridor so that you only have the neighbouring room within your little alcove - the building would easily allow for this from its original hospital design..

Room Tip: Upgrade to studio and ask for a 'quiet' area with a view!

Was told it was the old Launceston hospital so being in a wheelchair I was confident it would be ok and am happy to report the disabled room was a delight. Also has an adjoining door to another room for a carer. Disabled park just outside door. Launceston attractions were brilliant must recomend the Museum also the auto museum a lovely Park nearby that for some strange reason has monkeys in it and the casino which was very accesable.

Book accomodation for 3 couples on line and liked the look of this Hotel. Requested 3 rooms close together (including one with a shower chair). All rooms were modern and spacious, very comfortable beds. Bathrooms were great, especially the one with the chair. Our rooms were all together as requested. Staff were friendly and helpful and the dining room and meals excellent. Will definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Charles hotel in Launceston Tasmania for one night recently and we were impressed by the staff and the quality of the hotel room and fittings. The hotel Charles is in a quiet but very convenient location to all business and tourist venues around Launceston.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone and will certainly rebook when visiting Launceston.

This hotel used to be the Launceston hospital, but has been refurbished into a modern hotel.
Large rooms with roomy bathroom, ask for the front rooms with a view of Launceston. Close to some very nice eateries, walking distance to central Launceston.

Room Tip: ask for the front rooms with a view.

Three stays at the Hotel Charles since February 2011 - about time I wrote a review! I've now experienced an executive studio, hotel room; and an interconnecting suite. All are great with fresh, stylish furnishings - clean and comfy. Room service is consistently good from the simple cheese platter to multi-course meals. Joseph Chromey wine in the fridge is a nice touch too! All in all I find the hotel extremely good and the staff affable, flexible and helpful. Location is convenient, parking easy, some super coffee shops/cafes close by. Surprise surpirse - I'm back there again next week!

Room Tip: 07 rooms on each floor are a bit bigger than others and can accommodate wheelchairs easily.

We arrived at the Charles to warm smiles. The room was fantastic - kitchenette, big bathroom, comfy bed and very spacious. The hotel is ideal for corporate travellers but also suited us as holiday makers.
The best thing by far about the Hotel Charles is their restaurant. First impressions I thought the room may get cold and the shiney red plastic seats look abit uncomfortable - but it was the complete opposite. The restaurant was lovely and warm and the food was excellent but the staff were outstanding. We had the same girls for breakfast and lunch and they are the best service I have had my entire holiday.
Definatly recommend the restaurant!

Room Tip: Ask for a city side room
