“Charles”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Great rooms - good value, bright, roomy, clean. Staff very good. Disappointed with restaurant food, but good eateries within walking distance and plenty of facilities for breakfast making in the rooms. Short walk to city centre and not far to walk to harbour. Would definitely recommend.

Does not disappoint.
We spent 3 nights here and everything was perfect - food, service, cleanliness, etc.
Do yourself a favour and stay here! The location on Charles St close to excellent eateries is a plus. But the restaurant is also very good, so try that too.

Hotel Charles is in a great location in Launceston and the service is attentive and helpful. The room is spacious and clean and well equipped. The only negative was despite booking a King size bed, we were given two single beds pushed together. Apart from that its definitely a good option when staying in Launceston

I stayed 2 consecutive nights then an additional night in December 2012. The Hotel was extremely clean and offered simple but satisfactory amenities. The room was spacious (very high ceiling heights) and bright and a nice base to come back to after spending the day out exploring Tassie. It does not have 'boutique' charm or a homely feel but if that is not a priority for you I would recommend this Hotel. It is also situated ten mins from Launceston town centre and Charles street offers good cafe food on the way.

The Hotel Charles is reliable accommodation for anyone who is just looking for a place to rest up. It is clean, modern and the staff at the counter are friendly. If you are looking for a hotel with a little more charm or a personal touch, this isn't the hotel for you. It is a great place to base yourself in relation to Launceston, restaurants and surrounding areas, however doesn't provide much more than that. A great place to sleep and shower if this is all you need from a hotel. You pay for what you get.

This hotel is quite modern and located right at the Hospital in Launceston. We had a Queen spa room which meant a jetted tub in the bedroom. There was a small kitchen and sitting area outside of the bedroom. Quirky modern furniture and nice sized TV in the living area. There is a restaurant downstairs with a nice lounge/fireplace area. We ate breakfast at the restaurant - food was good - but not $16 good for continental breakfast. Very nice and helpful front desk staff made the visit enjoyable!

We stayed here for 2 nights in Dec, and found our room to be clean & modern, with a large and comfortable bed, chic furniture; and a balcony to sit out at during the evenings.

Location wise, this is just outside the CBD on Charles Street, and there are a few restaurants within walking distance. Parking spots might be a problem during busy times, although we usually found parking without a fuss.
