We stopped at Penny Royal for our first & last night in Tasmania as we had our flights in & out of Launceston. It is very close to the city centre & walking distance to the magnificent cataract Gorge, a must see while visiting Tasmania. We had different rooms each time, but both were spacious & very clean. Staff were friendly & helpful. Our room rate included a breakfast at the Windmill Tavern which was top class. Rooms were not numbered but named such as The Stables, The Bakehouse, The Dairy, etc. My children thought this was great to tell other family members & friends that they stayed in "The Dairy" for a night. I would not hesitate to stop here again & would totally recommend this place. Excellent value for money.

We had two nights at the Penny Royal great location just a short walk to the beautiful Cataract Gorge, our favourite spot on the whole trip. We had a ground floor room spacious as was the bathroom. The staff very friendly and the Mill restaraunt served beautiful food.
It was a nice start to our first visit to Tassie.

Room Tip: Ground floor seems to be the pick.

We loved the Penny Royal, it was one of our favourite stop overs in Tasmania. Don't let the outside appearance fool you. Inside is a modern and very clean room with spacious features. The bathroom is huge and the bed is so comfortable! The Windmill Tavern serves delicious food and the staff are friendly and helpful. It was within walking distance to the Cataract Gorge, Tamar River and city centre. It's in a quiet position with convenience stores close by. We couldn't fault it and would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: We were on the bottom floor, close to the road and had no problems with noise.

What a terrific place to stay so close to the wonderful Launceston gorge. We stayed in the old water mill. After reading earlier reviews we requested a ground floor room. Glad we did as there are three levels with no lift (that we could see). Interior is newly renovated along side old world charm - hard wood door and beams. Bathroom was spotless and modern. Bed super comfy. The only negatives were the room was a little warm so we had the provided fan on all night. There is no A/C. Breakfast was included in the adjoining restaurant. Sadly our poached eggs were all hard boiled. Never mind it was a great stay otherwise. I hope the windmill gets renovated and reopened.

We were lucky as we were on the ground floor. Lovely clean spacious room, no view but we were only there 2 nights. Car parking was free and nearby. Bathroom was great, towels a bit small but ok. Plenty of room and a lovely large shower. Good tv and tea and coffee with a fridge. A bit out of main town but near the cataract gorge. No cleaning of room, but we were aware of this and it was reflected in the price. A pleasant surprise in a lovely town.

If you're looking for a shiny stainless establishment, this isn't for you, but for Heritage surroundings, with every modern convenience, this is very nice. Close to the lovely Cataract Gorge, yet 5 mins walk into town, its ideally situated. Reception is warm and helpful (printed out our boarding passes) and the generous tea-making facilities include a carton of real milk on arrival. The ground floor family rooms are particularly spacious, if a little dark. Would definitely come back.

Room Tip: Ask for ground floor family room.
