We chose Quest Launceston because it was newly renovated and had stayed and been happy at many other Quest properties. We were in Launceston for National All Schools Athletics Championships, so good sleep was rather essential to running well at this pinnacle of competition for primary school kids. WHAT A MISTAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I still have nightmares from the historic clock tower (which we could actually see from our window on a high floor so we were obviously close) gonging on the hour EVERY HOUR ALL NIGHT LONG and gonging that recognisable tune EVERY QUARTER HOUR until midnight and starting again at 0700!!!! After 2 nights I was actually going insane from sleep depravation and couldn't function or answer simple questions in a reasonable time.
I woke up & slept in 10-20 min incriments in anticipation of the inevitable tolling of the bells. I knew all night long exactly what time it was because I could count the gongs. Needless to say that my daughter's performance was affected by the interrupted sleep and we changed hotels as soon as we could. We were offered another room but could still hear the bells tolling and gave up on this nice hotel.
Why, oh why, do they not double-glaze the windows??????????????? At the very least.
