“Excellent service”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We booked this hotel via a $99 Wotif deal so we were a little unsure what to expect. We needn't have worried.

The hotel looks quite unassuming from the outside but it is full of character on the inside. Our room was in the main building and was the smallest on the floor (judging by the floor plan on the fire escape notice), but as we'd only paid $99 a night we didn't mind.

Even though it was small it had everything we needed including en-suite shower room, tea and coffee making facilities (including fresh ground coffee), fridge, television, DVD player. There was a fireplace in the room and lots of original features which made it very cosy. The room was spotlessly clean throughout our stay.

The hotel staff were all tremendously polite and helpful. The breakfast is good value at $15 for the continental buffet or $23 for the buffet and full cooked breakfast. The cooked option was freshly prepared, delicious and beautifully presented.

The hotel is in a good location, just a short walk from the main centre and an easy walk to Cataract Gorge or the river.

We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Fantastic hotel in the middle of Launceston.
Easy to find, easy to park, next to Boags, great staff, large clean, fantastic room. Easy walk to Mud restaurant in the evening via the cider bar.
Great breakfast the next morning, got to be the best in town.

Wow this hotel deserves a fabulous review I highly recommend a stay here if your visiting Launceston and if you are in need of accommodation for 4 perhaps consider the junior suite.
The stables rooms I cannot comment on. The staff were very friendly, the amenities were deluxe and immaculate, breakfast was superb, loved the pancakes and fruit choices. As we had a late flight back to Perth we were made to feel very welcome to collect our luggage later in the day and stop for a coffee. A great location less than 200 metres to Albert Hall, where we attended the Australian Regional Tourism Convention 2012.

Room Tip: Junior suite is very spacious for a family or small group with queen bed and two single beds. plenty...

Wow, you couldn't ask for a better place to stay. The rooms were more like a 5 star hotel than the rating they have been given of 4 1/2 star. Quality of in-room coffee, tea and toiletries were amazing and the staff very helpful and friendly even offering us a free breakfast on our check out. Would recommend this hotel without hesitation,

Just recently we had the pleasure of staying at this hotel.
It was a great experience from the time we entered the front door.
Friendly and knowledgeable staff, an intimate hotel which still retained the old world charm but with all the modern conveniences. A great room as well.
Quiet place to rest the head and easy to see why they had repeat corporate business.
Not like the sterile environment of many larger hotels and management clearly focussed on the customer and ensured a good time was had.
Looking forward to coming back to Launceston and renewing acquaintances with this hotel.

This hotel is great! I am a picky person and the room was clean, the bathroom spotless and the service impecable. The shower was a double size, there were robes and slippers, a fridge and a great size tv. The restaurant looked inviting and had many guests for dinner. I ordered room service and it was delicious and huge portions.The only downside is the stairs & the exhaust fan outside the window.

Room Tip: The exhaust fan was right outside my window and was extremely noisy!
