Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Outstanding accommodation in every respect. Our room was magnificent. The hotel is located in a good spot being only a short walk to much of what Launceston has to offer. The fact the hotel provides access to laundry was most helpful and the staff couldn't have been more professional or courteous.

Short stay before travelling onwards for work. Very late check in and out and staff were very friendly and helpful. Bed wasn't particularly comfortable and fridge had very bad smell. Individual aircon/heater in room was handy and the room was quiet.

Excellent location with free parking for guests - great if you have a rental car! Lots of awesome eateries nearby. An easy 15-20 minute walk to the city. Stayed in a 2 bedroom interconnecting family apartment. Rooms and beds were very comfortable. Tidy little kitchenette was equipped with a stovetop, microwave and basic utensils. Large and spacious bathroom. Staff at the hotel were wonderful. They made their guests feel noticed and welcome. After a long day out sightseeing, coming back to the hotel felt like coming home. Thanks so much for looking after us, Mantra Charles!

Stay here whenever I'm on business in Launceston and have also been here with my family a few times. It's right across the road from the LGH so great for medico-types who need somewhere to stay near work. Charles Street restaurants are a short walk away and it's a clean, modern option that doesn't break the bank. Good size rooms even at the starting price-point.

Room was nice apart from some of the carpet being threadbare. Was lovely to have a spa bath in the window, just make sure if using at night you put the lights out or use the blind cos everyone can see through the windows.

The property was easily accessible with ample parking, which is free to hotel guests via a permit issued during check-in. Both king rooms booked were large, comfortable and well-appointed with very new general fit-out and bathroom fixtures. The hotel staff were professional, friendly and helpful at all times.

A great place to stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful and room was very clean with excellent facilities. Unfortunate time of the year to travel over NYE as restaurant and more importantly bar was closed. Star was deducted though solely for car parking which is problematic at busy times requiring us on 2 occasions to park in the street and having to watch times to avoid fines.

Staff were exceptional disappointed that we received notification 2days prior to arrival that the restaurant and bar will be closed for lunch and dinner for several weeks. However breakfast was open. Being there on public holidays it made it harder to find restaurants. Room was good bathroom large but a small shower.

The service was exceptional. Nothing was a problem for them. Parking was right out the front. The hotel is in a great location with the city centre being just down the road a few blocks. The hospital is just across the road.
