This hotel ticks all the boxes for value accommodation in Launceston. It's adjacent to the main shopping area of the city, and an easy stroll to any shop in the CBD. Despite this, it's in a reasonably quiet street and traffic noise is minimal. The rooms do not have double glazing, but probably don't need it. The rooms are reasonably austere and about average for an Australian hotel room in size. The bathroom was very well kept, and the shower effective and hot.
Coffee and tea making facilities were present, and we were pleased to note that they continue to supply "real" milk in a carton to add to it.
The TV in our room was a 32" LED flat screen Samsung, which provided excellent reception.
The bed and bedding made for a very comfortable night's sleep, and it was pleasing to see that extra pillows were provided, as I prefer I higher pillow. There is good Fujitsu A/C.
The staff are very friendly and efficient. We booked the continental breakfast with our room, and it offered an excellent choice of juices, cereals, breads and spreads. The restaurant has quite a good choice of hot breakfasts, too, and dinner is available there with a reasonably comprehensive menu for a hotel dining room.
So we left our night's stay well rested and refreshed, which is all one really asks of a hotel.
The Balmoral is a very nice place to stay. It is obvious that the staff take a pride in maintaining high standards, and we'd confidently recommend it for a stay in Launceston.
I don't think this hotel has any negatives at all. Maybe mention should be made of the car park, which slopes quite dramatically. It is probably worth being careful in choosing where to park, because if someone parked beside you let go of their door it would definitely cause damage to your vehicle. Car "spots" are nice and wide, so this is not a huge problem provided you recognize that there may be an issue and park intelligently. It really can't be fixed, so I don't blame the owners at all.
