“Great value for money”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Stayed here for three nights and can highly recommend this motel. We stayed in a refurbished unit and breakfast was included. great place just a short drive from Launceston CBD. Would recommend this for either a short or long stay.

On our first trip to Launceston,Tasmania, We stayed here for two nights. As a 3½ star hotel, I would definitely give extra point, cause the staff is really friendly, and awesome service, fast check in, nice and clean room; they also do good food, Lam rump is best one I ever had. it situated at the gateway to the Tamar Valley attractions and Wine Route.
Launceston is a beautiful place n so is this place. Absolutely to be recommended
Like they said, Great location, Great food, Great value. Very recommendable.
第一次旅行去塔斯马尼亚朗塞思顿,我们在这里住了两个晚上。作为一个三星半酒店,我绝对会给上额外的加分,因为那里的员工非常的友好以及令人满意的服务态度,快速登记入房,整洁 干净。而且他们也提供很好的食物,这里的羊排是我吃过最好的。这家酒店坐落在通往泰玛谷景点和葡萄酒庄之路。朗诵斯顿是个漂亮的地方,这个酒店同样是个不错的选择,绝对推荐。 就像他们所说的,拥有最好的地段 做最好的食物 让客人享有最超值的服务。特别推荐。

Main attraction for this property was affordability and location based on internet information. We'd asked for a early check-in based on arrival by ferry from Melbourne, This was not acknowleged and we were told to check-in at 2pm. Luckily we carried a hard copy of our booking and a choice of rooms appeared from no-where! The receptionist comfirmed no credit card imprint was required or breakfast vouchers needed. The room was spaceous, very clean and had all the basics in working order. Bedding especially the mattress was well past expiry date and one of the pillows was cotton wool thin with 3 layers of pillow protectors. On the first night we retired early after 24 hrs of travelling only to be disturbed by Reception demanding a credit card imprints and our breakfast menu. Not impressed as this could of been resolved 12 hrs beforehand. The Bistro was quite busy with local trade and the menu seemed over-priced compared to Sydney restaurants offering the same style. However, the food was of exceptional quality, expertly cooked, value for money and well worth dining for 2 nights in a row. It's unfortunate that a negative attitude towards customer service appears 'viral' with senior employees and supervisors. An easily identifiable training need that Oasis Management has to rectify. Witnessing a Kitchenhand urinating behind the staff smoko area wasn't a very pleasant experience either. The property's saving grace was from a Room Attendant by the same name, Grace not only provided invaluable location information but also ensured our room was professionally serviced as well.

Room Tip: Ask for a refurnished room with a new bed

Dined here for a second time for a family get together with my small children. Play area is a REAL plus as are their deals for kids. Kids menu GREAT! My two year old had roast of the day and veggies and my son had pasta bolognaise - no need for chips ALL the time! Not fancy, a bit crowded and noisy but exactly what I'd expect. If dine elsewhere if I was on a 'date night' but got family friendly value it's great.

We booked into Riverside Hotel Motel for 4 nights while in Launceston as the cost was very attractive. The Hotel Motel is an easy 10 minute drive from the city and would use this Hotel Motel again if in Launceston.

The Motel is associated with the Hotel but this did not impact on our stay. The meals at the Hotel are also very quite good and for pub meals were equal to what I have had elsewhere. Cost of meals was very reasonable.

This is not place if you want a gym and all the additional facilities of a 5 star hotel but if you are looking for good clean and economical place to stay, this is the place

Staff friendly, food reasonably priced. My partner enjoyed his trout meal, I had beef schnitzel it was fine, the onion rings were good.

Can be busy, and sometimes it can be noisy but if you can sit on the bar side it is a bit quieter.

Great for families and has a children's play area.

All in all 3.5 stars.

I stayed in an un-renovated room and it was still excellent. Bed was old but comfortable,bed lined was good quality and towels were large and soft (unusual for a property of this type). Had a reasonable size flat screen TV. Small kitchenette (microwave, sink, crockery, cutlery, microwave coking utensils but n hotplate or oven) was very useful. Very good convection heaters but no airconditioning. It is attached to a hotel with a very popular bistro (I didn't eat there this time but have enjoyed their food and service in the past. Easy drive into Launceston
