3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed one night at this place and found it reasonably comfortable. Bed was good, bathroom was okay but had nowhere to put your toiletries bag, toothbrush etc. There was a small kitchenette which was well equipped but we did not bring food with us. Restaurant across the road served breakfast (at an astonishingly late start time) because the hotel apparently did not serve breakfast. Not sure why. It was clean and comfortable for one night.

A very pleasant stay in 'ye olde' style accommodation with mod cons. The pub attached is busy at 'peak times', perhaps more staff needed during these hours. Overall, very clean, comfortable and affordable.

Loved our stay, Penny Royal is right next door to the Cataract Gorge and Adventure park where u can dine, get ice cream, have a few wines/beers. We had fireworks on NYE right across the road in the park too. Location is fantastic and pub on site is great too. Reception staff went above and beyond and very welcoming. Thanks again

We had an awesome 2 nights stay during the New Year period. After many nights of staying in cabins, we really enjoyed our stay at Leisure Inn. The apartment is comfortable and clean with fully equipped kitchen, rooms are spacious (good for family of 4) and we felt like our own home. Checkin staff is helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the fireworks in the Royal Park on New Year eve which is just opposite the hotel!! Location is about 10 mins walk to the town centre and gorge is just right next to the hotel which is great for morning walks. Simply an awesome place to stay in Launceston

Near gorge for sight seeing and near cbc for food. Close to all amenities and easy to find. The gorge walk is a must. And go down to the river front area for other restaurants. A very good golf course is close by.

Lovely stunning historical place. Staff were superbly efficient check in very easy. The rooms were large clean and beautifully presented. Location perfect was easy taxi from the airport and a short walk to town overlooking the park

our overall stay was really good, even though it was only one night it was great friendly service, clean and tidy room, was nice and big and also was great to have off street parking. we would have loved to stayed a few more night and as the price was really good we will be staying again.

Clean room and easy check in. Room was ready prior to 2pm which was great. Renovation a little tired looking but Penny Royal is an interesting attraction on site. Disappointed that there were no biscuits in the room to go with a cuppa. Otherwise would stay again.

very poor room 237 bathroom is disgusting shower rail is very rusty no vent or fan window is always open and looking through it you only see a big metal box with a cut out no daylight shower arm keeps falling laundry room is next door your get woken up hear machines and people taking full of crap when giving information when speaking to an older female receptionist lady cannot remember her name rest of the team members are switched on

Leisure Inn is a beautiful property - well equipped apartment for family. After staying at cabins for the last 7 nights, we felt very at home at Leisure Inn. Staff was helpful in directing us to our rooms and giving us all the information that we need to know during our stay. Our room is located across the Royal Park so it was perfect for the fireworks on 31 Dec. A short walk to the Gorge (best in the morning) and Penny Royal Adventures Park is just right next doors with bars and restaurants to pick from. Only a 10 mins walk to the city centre. It's an awesome place and will definitely come back again!
