“Well equipped and good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

The external architecture would not inspire but the units are spacious well laid out and have had a recent makeover. Good self catering facilities.

Given the proximity to the West Tamar Highway traffic noise is minimal.

We'd stay there again.

I had stated 8:30 arrival on booking, but phone died do I could not call ahead when I was delayed by a meeting at did not arrive til 9.30. Phone outside reception had someone down to meet me in 5 minutes, and I was inside- great service. They mentioned that heater etc had been on til 10 minutes ago but had all been switched off when they left as assumed I was not coming. I had to plug in/turn on at wall everything bar the fridge as it was all set up for no guests. The kitchen was well appointed, but floor was really dirty - dried up cooked rice and crumbs underfoot. I went to take a shower and there were long dark hairs stuck on tiled wall - easily could have fallen from cleaners head I thought, but then saw drain hole was filled with dark hair also- shower obvs not cleaned from last user. I sighed and went to unfold towel anyway and long dark hair was hanging off the towel. Re folded and left on bench - I did not want to shower after that. Three main room lights and one was blown so room was dark- I changed for lamp bulb of second bed (queen + single). Have blown bulb to office at checkout, same nice man who let me in night before, he immediately went to change it - I wondered why if he had been in the room before I arrived turning on heaters etc why it was left blown in the room in the first place. Room cost $95 on a booking.com sale, I felt like it would have been good value if someone was onsite and room had been clean. After kitchen/bathroom experience I slept uncomfortably wondering if the bed was clean too. Probably just bad luck as otherwise seemed standard motel fare- restaurant was well closed when I arrived so no chance to comment there.

Great place to stay very central, clean and roomy, would sugest car hire if you are staying in launceston as Taxi very scarce. Would recommend the walk to the Gorge and chair lift very beautiful. Day trip to Cradle mountain was spectacular.

We spent 2 nights here and would stay here again. Great location, initially we thought being so close to the main road would be noisy, but it wasn't. Top floor where we were had lovely views over the river and sunrise. The room was spacious (queen bed and single), clean, and along with the well appointed kitchen and newish bathroom the whole deal was excellent value for money. ($90 a night). The host was friendly and you can walk to the tailrace park along the river just over the road. A good place!!

Room Tip: Top floor gives the view

We enjoyed our stay of two nights here. The rooms were large, The full kitchen put to good use in the morning and The showers hot, The bathrooms have obviously been renovated recently and are very attractive though the addition of an extraction fan would have helped with the steam and water on the floor problem.
The staff on our arrival and departure were very pleasant and welcoming.
Steve's Restaurant was a very pleasant surprise, steaks must be his specialty as we returned the following night for more of his perfectly cooked steaks.

Very friendly staff when checking in. Room was very adequate with a queen and a single bed. Good size kitchen to be able to cook what ever you want with a good size fridge also. Very modern bathroom. Big tv with some pay tv stations. Good view from top story. Close to road but very minimal noise. Laundry room at end of rooms. Good central spot to explore Launceston or go north. Major supermarket close by. We have stayed here before and will return next time also

I phoned ahead explaining that i would be arriving late and the property owner advised up as to where he would leave our room key. When we arrived the heater was on in the room and the room was very clean and spacious. The facilities were first class and I cannot fault the service that we received. The bed was so very comfortable and even though we were close to the road we could not hear the traffic. I will definitely recommend and stay here again.
