Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Stayed for just one night. The room was basic but clean. A good comfortable bed with nice linen and towels. The room overlooked York Street with a lovely view. I found it just a little noisy mainly young folk around 3am and the town clock chiming every hour. It's a very quiet town so all noise carries and I am a very light sleeper. My husband heard nothing.
Trevor does go the extra mile and it is lovely to be given a little more attention and service.
The breakfast was delicious.

Room Tip: Get a room at the back if you are a very light sleeper.

This place would be hands down the best value for money in Launceston. Trevor ( the owner) runs it with so much passion and precision and he has the best smile ans greeting for you always. The breakfast was the best one I have tasted in a while. And the service was just awesome. Absolutely have to come back to stay here again and explore Launceston. Highly highly recommend it.

Stayed for 2 nights in March 2013. Price was higher than usual, presumably due to the NAB Cup match in town, but booked in anyway on the basis of the TA reviews.

Service was very friendly, always met with a smile and felt very welcome. Room was good, nothing exciting but comfy bed and Foxtel on TV.

Breakfast was fabulous. Yummiest poached eggs I've had in ages and all served with a smile, felt more like a B&B at breakfast time than a hotel.

Only downside was the aircon in our room. It was average at best, made a lot of noise for not much result and on the second night there was a constant rattle which made it hard to sleep. If it had been that bad the first night we would have complained but by the second night it was too late. We did mention it at check out and hope the problem has been rectified for future guests.

Our first stop during our Tas trip was Launceston. We only need a clean quiet downtown place for sleep as we are the kind of persons who are out for most of the day. Balmore served the purpose well. We got a good-sized room toward the car park. Very quiet even at its maximum capacity during our stay which is around New Year.

We arrived early before other guests checked out and Trevor took care of our bags, and we were surprised that half an hour later he managed to put us in a room just serviced - which was great as that meant we were able to take a refreshing shower off long flight from HK.

Room was clean and shower was good as well. Breakfast was well cooked and included with rate. Never needed to wait very long. I especially liked that they provided cooked breakfast as many places have gone continental or even none.

They had their own parking which was close to full but nevertheless I was able to find a space when I returned late at night. It was valuable as opposed to the need to park somewhere else using voucher or coins - with rules which were rather confusing to people from abroad. We had a hard time finding parking when we were later in Hobart and our hotel there did not have inhouse parking.

All in all this is a solid place and recommended for its rates.

Small hotel which provides the best friendly, efficient and professional service. From the front desk to the cleaning staff everyone helpful and cooperative. Rooms very well appointed (fabulous shower) and it is very convenient with views over Launceston. Would stay here again and recommend to all

We stayed here for one night before starting the rest of our Tasmanian get away. The breakfast was great and we couldn't fault the service for check in, check out and breakfast. We would definitely return here on our next visit to Launceston!

We were only going to stay in Launceston one night, but after checking in and discovering what a great room and location we decided to stay 2 nights. Trevor the proprietor could not have been more accommodating. We had an evening meal at the restaurant, lovely. Breakfast was also included in our price. Would not stay anywhere else.
