It was a convent, but is now a hotel stripped of all warmth. Modern art , cold feeling, and draughty too.
I got a special winter deal, but would never pay the asking price for this place. Bed was so soft and sinky, I was glad I was alone in it !!
The towels smelled of some some of petroleum smell, but when I mentioned it to the duty manager he just asked about when the next time I would be coming so he could........., I said I was telling him for the sake of ALL his guests.
He told me that at peak periods they get nearly $1000 per night for the room I had. I said you have to be joking. He said when it was the last room in Launceston people would pay that rate.
Not a good attitude to business.
