“Very very good.”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

This is now choice of accommodation each time we need to stay overnight in Launceston.
Spotlessly clean with good quality linen and a super comfy mattress.

The room we had at the back of the building was super quiet and once again the promo breakfast was incredible value.
Trevor is very passionate,very professional and he really does deserve a #1 rating.

Great value for money for both the accommodation and breakfast, we paid $7 for a fantastic cooked breakfast, full of a large range of extras, if you wanted more. Rooms were clean an spacious with a mini bar an other little home pleasures. Trevor the host was very welcoming an hospitable with any requests or queries. Friendly staff, good parking space at no extra cost, a restaurant for dinner if you feel like staying put for the night, walking distance to shopping strips an lots more. Enjoyed our time here would come back again!

From the moment we walked through to the Reception, the staff couldn't do enough for us. Rooms are large and very clean and the free wi-fi and car parking are a bonus. The special of $7 each for a fully cooked breakfast as well as cereal, fruit, juice and tea/coffee was fantastic value! Again, the staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. Great location... Would recommend this hotel.

I liked the Balmoral so much I stayed there again. The staff are especially friendly, professional and helpful. Rooms are large, upgraded with comfy beds, Foxtel and NBN fee wifi. I really enjoyed the promo breakfasts [scrambled eggs are great], and had dinner twice as well. Oly half a block from the city centre. I would not stay anywhere else in Launceston.

Room Tip: In the front looking over town. First floor have balconies

This establishment is run by Trevor and his wonderful team. Located along York Street, it is just a mere 5 minutes to walk down to the main shopping area (Brisbane St). Parking is available at the hotel. The breakfast, which is optional, is good and if the weather permits, you can sit on the balcony and enjoy the day. We had dinner one of the nights we were there and the quality of food is really good considering the pricing was very affordable.

Okay, the room that we got was facing the city, had a double bed and a single bed in a sort-of-a annex room. Now, we were in Launceston during a heat wave in January. It hit 40 degrees Celcius (!!!!) when it really should have been at about 20 degrees that time of the year. On the first night, we realized the air conditioning couldn't keep the room cool due to the heat. It was only the two of us on the trip, I can imagine it getting even warmer for a third person in the annex room. However, on the second night, temperatures did drop down a wee bit and was a lot more comfortable. Like i said, this was a freak weather thing. Otherwise, the room temperature should not be an issue.

So, moving on from the hardware to the software. We arrived before the official check-in time and Trevor gave us the only room that was available instead of making us leave our bags there. We really appreciated it because we could have really done with a wash up after our drive from Bicheno. Trevor also gave recommendations on where to go and how to get about it. Made us feel at home.

I wouldn't hesitate to return if I were to drop by this part of the world again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front face the main road but traffic is very light. Rooms at the back face the car park...

Congratulations to Trevor and his wonderful staff, they really do a great job. Good location, large room size all the amenities but really pleasant people, thanks for a great weekend. Adequate parking at the rear. breakfast included is a bonus and multiple sports channels. Free WIFI all hotels should offer this!!

Room Tip: Back side rooms maybe a little quieter but no big deal.
