“So good we went twice.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2011

Simply a top value motel in a good location.

All a little dated but extremely comfortable. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful.

Stayed on both the first and last nights of our Tassy trip.

stayed one night at Mercure ( friends had booked for us all) and problem with aircon on only two floors so rebooked rooms upstairs.. decided to come to Sandors for a night as I have stayed here before( staying third night now). Very glad as the room fairly sparkled it was so clean. Yes it is an older hotel but everything is in great working order and good location. Friendly and helpful staff, prompt room service and tasty food reasonably priced. Privacy, comfort, cleanliness.

A good location and convenient to all amenities in the city. Pleasant staff who were very eager to please - the rooms are small, clean but dated. The downside was that on the morning of departure there was no hot water for a shower or any other purpose in the room - no apology when reported and no offer of a solution except that it must be a 'fuse'!

We chose to stay at Sandor's for one night, as we were flying in late and leaving early the next morning. We just wanted a cheap bed. $85.00 for the night, in a double room.

Bed was comfy. Our room was on the road side, so very noisy.

Basically, what we got, was what we had paid for.

Definitely wouldn't recommend staying there for more than one night.

We had six nights here, spotless room, compfy beds, excellent amenities, excellent friendly staff nothing was too much trouble. Wonderful restaurant and prices comparable with other hotel meals and a lovely bar area. Air conditioning, which when I was looking for accommodation and wanting a great price deal, other establishments did not have. Don't think you don't need air conditioniing, believe me you do. The best rates in town. Located close to CBD and the park accross from Sandors is just beautiful, even has monkeys in an enclosure that you could watch playing for ages. Heaps of offstreet parking and no road noise. Best we found during our Tassie holiday. The elevator was a huge plus. Older style but don't let that deter you.

This hotel is nicer than it looks from the outside. The rooms are clean with comfortable beds and if you are lucky enough you may get a room that overlooks the park. A car park is also available which is a real bonus. I would stay here again.

We booked a room from the accommodation board at the Launceston Airport for two nights. We travelled to the motel by the airport shuttle, as it is alot cheaper than a taxi. A taxi costs about $35.00, but with airport shuttle is was $24.00 for the us of us.
On arriving at the motel, the reception staff was so polite, cheerful and we felt very welcomed. Our room was clean, comfortable and had all the necessities for a pleasant stay. It even had a mini bar that didn't cost the earth, so we enjoyed a bottle of red wine and ordered a cheese platter from room service at a cost of $15.00. $15.00 for a cheese platter at the time we thought was alittle expensive, but it was worth every cent. Tasmanian cheeses presented beautifully and more than enough for the two of us. We highly recommend.
The cafe at the motel needs our recommendation. The menu seems alittle expensive at first. I had the the chicken at $26.00, but what a meal! A fresh chicken breast, topped with seafood and a cream sauce, with vegetables. My husband had the eye fillet at $28.00. It was cooked to perfection and was so tender. Our both meals were large and beautifully presented. Our waitress was friendly and the service was great. If you go to Launceston and do not stay at Sandor's, at least go to their Cafe. By this time you might need to make a booking, as we are sure it would be one of the best eating places in Launceston. Give it a try!!
