“Great Stay”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We were greeted before we got out of the taxi, the staff were fabulous and very attentive.
The rooms were spacious and clean with extremely comfortable beds.
Location is a short walk to the city and the harvest market on saturday morning.
Although we didn't get to eat at the restaurant this trip we will next time after reading other reviews

We stayed at Balmoral for 2 nights recently, we had a top floor room with nice views. The hotel is within walking distance of the city. The rooms clean and spacious, with a comfortable bed. Parking and Internet were free. The staff very friendly and helpful with good local knowledge. The full cooked breakfast was delicious. We would definitely stay here again.

This is the friendliest, cleanest, nicest hotel with the best on-site restaurant I've been in for a long long time. We went all over Tasmania and this was our last for one night before we flew out. I really wish we'd done this first - I would have stayed a few nights. I will certainly go back. The restaurant was so accommodating and the food is great. Breakfast was included with our price and was fantastic value. Unlimited is true. I got scrambled eggs, mushrooms, spinach and sourdough toast with hash browns and it was fabulous. Absolutely fabulous. Easy walk to town, the rooms had a nice view over the city, beds were so comfortable, and a big Sony plasma TV with a lot of channels. Nice Italian leather couch, well set out - just great stay and first class all the way.

Room Tip: I stayed in city view and it had nice views over the city.

Very good accommodation. Close to city, walking distance to many attractions, and didn’t need a car for the period of stay. Room presentation was clean and well presented. Wireless internet access included.
We also arrived early, and didn't expect to be assigned the room. However, the staff, had us within a room with 10 minutes.
Great Service!!!

Stayed here on business. I come to Launceston four times a year and this has been the best hotel I've stayed at so far. Big room, comfy bed, excellent cooked breakfast made to order. Good on-site parking and close to everything in the CBD. Friendly managers to top it off. This is my new go-to place.

My Partner and I stayed at balmoral on York for two nights, it is close to the city and has plenty of parking on site, we were a little disappointed with the standard of the room although functional and adequate it could do with updating.That said the staff were friendly and helpful particularly the manager. We had the continental breakfast which was very good.
