After travelling to Launceston for many years and staying at different hotels. Balmoral on York is where I will stay from now on.5 Star all the way great location and friendly staff. Thankyou so much for my 4 night stay loved it.

Great spot with old world charm and all the modern accesseries. Even had good wifi and Netflix. Friendly staff and very comfy, clean rooms. We were on the sevobd floor and close to elevator. Carpark at rear and had to carry all our stuff up in a few trips 😓

Great value in Launceston, good size room very comfortable and clean. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Stayed for one night $116 on last breakfast not included. Wifi was good but not secured we have VPN so it was not a issue. TV had a range of channels sky, fox and netflix. Laundry on the premises $3 to wash and $1 for 15-20 minutes to dry. Free parking provided.

Firstly, the best thing about this property is the Reception, Trevor I think. He was very helpful and went out of his way to provide information and really without him I would probably rate this stay differently. I am going to rate the hotel on the assumption it is trying to be retro?? The curtains and tiles are from another century. Notwithstanding that, the bed was great, position of the hotel good. Shower very good. I never figured out the Apple TV. The bar fridge was handy and kept my drinks cool. If you like homely accommodation and a real Tassie feel to your stay, I recommend Balmoral on York.

From the moment we checked in our group of 10 were so very impressed with the welcoming fantastic service. We presume the fantastic bloke that greeted us was the owner? Who was super organised with our rooms & keys & let us park our mini van & trailer out the front in the hotel bus park & quickly printed us off a sign to put in the van window so the parking meter people wouldn't give us a fine. He helped unload our bags, gave us a run down on our rooms - Apple TV & Netflix even! All of our 5 rooms were comfortable & super clean with lovely thick towels better than any other hotel on our trip (it's the small things us girls notice!) Breakfast was included in our room rate & we had been reserved tables for us all without us even asking. We all left more than happy with the fantastic service & great stay & can highly recommend to all - oh and the location to town is great too.

Have just booked a room for a 5 night stay for late March at Balmoral on York. Trevor called me right away from the hotel to answer a few question I had noted in the booking & was most helpful. If the quality of the staff is reflected in the quality of the hotel I think this will be an excellent stay.

This hotel has an old style feel But has all the modern conveniences that you would need. Very convenient parking behind the building. No room service but you can order microwaveable meals to eat in your room. Some rooms have Apple TV. Short walk to the centre of town. Good views from all the rooms that face the city. Not soundproof but the street is not super busy at night. Always return here for its clean rooms and convenient location and easy parking. Would recommend.

An excellent hotel with warm and friendly staff. An amazing stay depending on what you seek on your time in Launceston. Very impressed with the internet and ample parking which make it very easy to relax, especially when on business travel. PROS: + Very friendly and attentive staff. + Super Fast Internet + Apple TV, Netflix, Stan all displayed on a lovely TV. + Great Value. CONS: - Room Service / Night Food would be a blessing (esp. in Launceston) - Rooms are not too well insulated from noise - Room Decor is a tiny bit dated

Stayed here for two nights and could not be happier. The room was spaciius and the bed was very comfortable. We had the full cooked breakfast which was very nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Close to town and main street shopping precinct. There is a free bus that circuits the city dropping off at various points. A short walk of about 5 mins from the Balmoral will see you in at a bus pickup point. We had a great stay and will stay again.
