“Great boutique hotel”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Very pleased with our stay over the Christmas period. Rooms were spotless and very well equiped with a 40inch flat screen. We ate in the restaurant for both dinner and breakfast and again no complaints, all fresh and good selection. Also used the gym which was much bigger than expexcted. All up a great place to stay.....

We wanted something central and comfortable for our last night in Tasmania- this hotel was exactly what we were looking for. We had a Junior suite which had a King bed and two king singles. The room was open, however sectioned such a way that the kids could get to sleep with us staying up a bit longer. The beds, pillows and linen were are fantastic- the best nights sleep... The room was beautifully appointed and the bathroom was clean and very nice. The hotel itself was elegant with lovely staff and a secure carpark. We didn't eat in the restaurant but there were plenty of places within walking distance. There was even an old shoe cleaner for the convenience of guests- the kids loved this!! Highly recommended.

We stayed at this hotel having previously stayed last year.

The hotel itself is quite nice, being very historic. However the breakfast was a huge dissapointment and was totally unaceptable.

We had breakfast here the year before and were very impressed, we had also had great evening meals. This time however the bread was stale and no tongs were provided so people were using fingers.

There was no butter only margerine, the cereal was also stale.

We complained to the hotel and received no response. We also put our complaint in writing.

Would definitely not stay here again.

Room Tip: Would recommend the ground floor rooms in old stable block. Hotel has no lifts

We are sorry you were disappointed with breakfast during your recent stay with us. On this occasion the restaurant was in transition to our exciting new Restaurateur, this was their first morning, and we thank you for your valued feedback. We note you did speak to the Restaurant owner regarding your problems experienced with your 1st morning at breakfast, this was followed up by an invitation for complimentary drinks. We assure you on your next visit expectations will be met.

Very clean, comfortable, well furnished and great towels in the room (not the ones which go soggy after wiping your arm). Excellent value and full of character. Fantastic breakfast. Also ate in the restaurant for dinner - excellent food.

Room Tip: Stayed in the stable block - big room.

We booked in at the Clarion after spending a night at the Grand Chancellor prior to going on a tour and were glad we changed - the rooms were far superior with fabulously huge bathrooms and a big spa bath and beautifully appointed throughout. The view was disappointing - you look out on the car park - but apart from that it was lovely inside. It even had a gorgeous stained glass skylight! We also found the staff very helpful but chose to eat at the local restaurants so can't comment on the food.

We stayed just one night. The location is good for the local City Park & the Boag's brewery tour. Mud restaurant and Cataract Gorge are both within walking distance and there is free off street parking.

The rooms are relatively newly renovated and have a nice feel. The rooms and ensuites are quite large and ours was clean. We were in Launceston during the hottest day of summer (42 degrees) and the air-con in the room was very effective.

What won't appeal to some is the absence of a lift. We stayed on the 2nd floor requiring us to climb (with our bags too) two flights of stairs. This didn't bother us but will be a deal breaker to others. (Ask for a ground floor room maybe?)

Room Tip: Chose ground floor if you have ANY mobility issues
