“Very satisfied considering the price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

I don't normally stay in Motel accomodation, but when looking in Launceston I found prices a bit on the expensive side, probably because there was some kind of music festival on. Anyhow I was pleasantly surprised by the lovely clean room and they looked like they had been refurbished recently because our bathroom was very nice. The room was a bit small but had all that you needed. The staff at Reception were very nice indeed. If you are looking for a reasonable place to stay with clean rooms and great parking you cannot go wrong with Sandors on the Park

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back, it's quieter.

I stayed here over the weekend. Its close to the city and the monkeys in the park over the road. The staff were polite and helpful and gave good drections to Cataract Gorge. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. The bathroom could do with a makeover. Eveything I wanted was within an easy walk and there is a restaurant attached to the hotel. The buffet breakfast was good value - as much as you could eat for $15. There is limited room service though I didnt use this. Id stay again if I wanted a cheap clean comfortable palce to stay that was close to the city centre.

Room Tip: rooms out the back would proberbly be quieter as they are further from the road.

This is really not a very nice place to stay. It's not expensive in dollar terms, but considering what it's like, it's not good value. The other review comments are pretty accurate. It may be in a good spot opposite the park, but traffic noise in the morning is very bad if you have a room facing the street. As for cleanliness, it's so old you can't really tell if it's clean, and it naturally becomes difficult to clean a room & fittings over a long time.

Room Tip: Don't get a room facing the street, it's noisy.

Staff were very helpful; rooms a little dated (70's decor) but were clean & comfortable and everything worked - our room overlooked City Park.
Position was excellent, CBD & restaurants easy walking distance along Brisbane St.

An ideal location but a disappointing hotel. Staff were very pleasant but the whole hotel smelt of dampness and was very noisy. Seems to be no sound proofing between rooms or floors. Could hear every time the people in the adjacent room turned a tap on - sounded just like a fog horn going off. Would not stay at this hotel again.

The corridor smelt of mould, and was also dimly lit. No sound insulation between any of the rooms. Bathroom old and rundown, no extraction fan.

Back for the second time and yes, nothing has changed. The staff are still friendly! The rooms are still the same and the cost is still very reasonable. The cafe still has good value meals and with friendly staff. A negative is, after booking a table in the restaurant when we went down the cafe wasn't open and we had to sit in the bar area. Even though it has the same great staff and menu, we were disappointed that we were in the bar and not in the cafe. After finishing our meal and speaking to the waitress, we were told that if we had asked we could have sat in the cafe. A little too late by then!
If you want to watch Austar and pay movies they are not available. They have changed to all HD channels. This didn't bother us, as we are not great TV watchers. But my husband lost count on the available TV channels. A bonus is that they are all free.
