Recent guest reviews

This hotel we were met at the door of the car by a lovely gentleman who was more than helpful is getting us a nice room and settled in. There was no portacot available so they upgraded us to a room which could accommodate an infant. We had breakfast included which was a good breakfast fresh from the chef not in the warmer. Very central to everything and comfortable place to stay. This one is worth a look. 👌🏻

Very comfortable bed and room. Tasty breakfasts. Friendly and obliging staff. Plenty of parking. Rang me when I inadvertently left my Kindle in the room and was well out of town and arranged to post it back to me. The lift was a welcome bonus for us as we aren't as nimble as we used to be.

Brief overnight stop in this easy-to-find hotel... Initially looks a bit basic, with painted brick walls but the staff were really helpful and welcoming. Lots of parking off road and a quick walk into town for dinner... plenty of choice for all budgets. Very good continental breakfast included in room cost so a good choice all round...

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel and it was a pleasant stay. Good reception with lots of information provided on the town. Room was spacious enough with decent bathroom. Very clean all round. We had breakfast (continental) which was pretty good. The hotel is located just on the edge of the CBD so was very convenient and everything within walking distance. If you fancy a hike then it took us 35 mins brisk walk to get to the gorge cable car station. There is plenty of parking. There is a nice funky Indian restaurant just round the corner called the Pickled Evenings. Well worth a visit. Overall if you are looking for a nice clean and well located hotel without too much fuss then this one is a good option.

The service from the manager was fantastic and check in was less than 1 minute, which is far better than any 5 star hotel I have been to. My wife and I really liked the spacious room with the comfortable bed, but more importantly it was very clean. Location wise, we walked to the city centre, eateries and grocery stores. The Apple TV was fantastic with netflix included. Enjoyed the stay and would recommend to friends should they stay in Launceston.

With friendly helpful service upon arrival, a large comfortable room and mini-bar for those who need it, this hotel is an excellent mid-range option near the centre of Launceston. Decor is a little dated, but there is plenty of parking and a basic but tasty continental breakfast was included in the room price. No evening dining, but they offer fresh meals in a pack for heating up in your room, or we just walked 300m to the George Street restaurant and takeaway strip where there are plenty of food options.

Room was clean, comfortable bed so had an excellent night sleep, quiet location wonderful shower well stocked mini bar, airconditioner and a fantastic buffet / hot cooked breakfast all in all a great place to stay

Only stayed one night, but previously stayed before at this hotel, the service from the Manager was amazing, he went above and beyond with his hospitality and made us feel very welcomed. Had helpful suggestions and always addressed us by name. Hotel is central and convenient and comfortable and clean. Will definitely be staying again!!
