Reviewed July 16, 2013

Lovely refurb of the old hospital. Art Deco exterior. Staff very helpful. Room we stayed in had a broken blind cord that meant we couldn't close blind fully . Staff rigged a temporary solution with brown paper overnight and cord fix the next morning. Restaurant had good food and interesting menu and wine list. Very nice to see a lovely old building repurposed with modern fit out .

What a really lovely surpise to find a hotel that actually lives up to it's claims.
I'll start with rooms, extremely clean, roomy and very functional. Decor - modern, homely and very comfortable. In-room amenties - booked for two = got for two - I got the distinct impression that the reservation and house-keeping staff actually work well together - what a lovely surprise. This Hotel is one of only a few places that I would be prepared to give a 9 out of 10 to and if I were to find any fault with, then I would be using a spy glass and microscope.
Overall, we would highly recommend every aspect of this hotel, from the reception greeting, room facilities, restaurant (lovely menu and exceptional waiting staff) and overall, the ambience of the Hotel.
Congratulations to everyone at Hotel Charles, you are one of the few places we have stayed at that has ticked all the boxes and that we'd want to come back to when visiting Launceston

Staff - very friendly, helpful and courteous. Went out of their way to make stay better.
Room - clean, fresh, spacious. But too bad there was no bath tub.
Restaurant (dinner) - enough selection but tasty. Good wine selection.
Restaurant (breakfast) - usual continental selection like any other good hotels.
Location - not too difficult to get to if you walk from city center. 20-30 minutes walk to entrance of zig-zag hike. Easy to get to.

Highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed one night at Hotel Charles in July. A fab place very nice rooms albeit on the small size but very clean and quality refit which was apparently the old hospital. Breakfast in the restaurant was also very good quality and the staff very friendly.

Highly recommended !

Again and again I've returned. It's the comfort of know that for the most part the seem to get it right and that's why I'll be back again. As I've suggested in the past there is some room for improvement. When it comes to a gym they have a massive hotel so it shouldn't be a problem building a good size gym. If you have seen how steep the hills are in the area you would love a tredmill . Parking.... Not sure how they are going to fix that. I think the sourrounding businesses may have too many spots allocated to them at the cost of the hotel guests.

I have stayed at the Charles a few times and this trip my partner and I chose the Spa Room.
The room was very clean, well set out and very comfortable. I love the coffee pod machines, they do make a fabulous coffee, could have had more than two pods though!
The spa was most welcome in the afternoon after a full on day. A great size bathroom which was well set out. Free WiFi and onsite parking. Considering the hotel is just over the road from the Launceston General Hospital it was really quiet as the rooms have double glazed windows. As it is an old renovated hospital it is a bit more unusual as a hotel, high ceilings and thick walls and floors so no sounds of other guests. The reception staff were professional, happy and courteous and made us feel very welcome as a gay couple. The restaurant was excellent, we had lunch and dinner and the food and service was faultless, well worth just coming for the restaurant. Don't forget to ask for the Tripadvisor complimentary wine, we received a great Tassie Chardonnay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room the other side of the road. You must try the restaurant. Spa Room is worth the extra...

Have stayed here three times in the last six weeks, and had consistently high service, spotless well laid out rooms, great price and fabulous dinner in the restaurant.Chef comes out and talks with customers and is passionate about his food. You can see into the kitchen from the restaurant and the kitchen staff are efficient and friendly.
onsite parking is convenient, and Charles st itself is a wealth of interesting shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: all rooms have been terrific.
