“Good choice if driving in Tas”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

- 24 hrs Coles is just opposite to the motel.
- Free Wi-Fi
- I make a local call in room and was charged.. Not sure if it is same in other hotels.
- They record my credit card, I don’t think it is a must throughout my Australia journey.
- Within 5 mins drive to city center.

The bedrooms are very small and the main bedroom has an open arch doorway, do no privacy. Not a lot of space for clothes and suitcases. Hard beds were not pleasant. Good heating, loved the electric blankets. We ran out of hot water though.

Stayed with a group of friends and found this perfect for our needs. 100m walk to Coles and Kmart, and very close to all the tourist attractions we were visiting. Only issue was that there wasn't a lot of hot water - only 1 of us had a hot shower. I'd stay there again - and just space the showers out a bit more! Good value for money.

Good location, across the road from coles and kmart, walking distance to the centre of town.
The accommodation was quite good, nothing brilliant, but can't complain. One of the bedrooms had an archway rather than a door, but it was a good place to stay. Booked a two bed place online, when we got there had to say extra for a third person. Housekeeping kept only leaving two towels, but overall it was ok

We stayed at the Elphin Villas in December, 2013. It was neat and tidy for 2 adults and 3 children.
Rooms are a little small and lounge was a little hard, but overall a very central and accessible location to everything in Launceston. Self contained facilities was very helpful and useful. Two bathrooms. Main bed was a little hard though. Lounge also was a little uncomfortable but good value and a good way to start our 2 week holiday in Tasmania. Wonderful and helpful staff.

Stayed here for one night as the final stop on our Tasmania tour. well appointed apartment. Ours was clean and spacious. Friendly staff. Plenty of parking. Great location, quiet, but near to Coles and within walking distance of the town.

Stayed here because it was 2 bedrooms and close to the city. The villa was clean and comfortable enough and we were able to check in early which was convenient. A big bathroom but not a lot of space otherwise. Suitable for a quick trip but not somewhere I would choose to spend a lot of time.
