Stayed for one night with colleagues as part of a business trip.
I'd describe this hotel as 'acceptable but nothing more. My biggest gripe was there was no inbuilt airconditioning. Being summer it was actually quite hot and the room had a portable air conditioner that was very noisy and the airflow didn't reach the bed. In the room was an old pedestal fan that I ended up resorting to - but the cage was bent out of shape so it made an horrific vibrating sound so i had to take it apart to stop the noise. A big hassle at 1:00am when all I wanted to do was sleep.
Bed was comfortable. Plenty of space in the room. Bathroom was clean but very dated.
We had breakfast in the hotel restaurant. Was quite good. Downstairs bar was also pretty nice.
Overall the hotel seemed to be striving for a sense of luxury, which it might have in it's heyday, but it's well beyond that now. I'd much rather stay in one of the newer places Launceston has to offer unless I got a very good rate at the Grand Chancellor.
