We stayed here for three nights. The staff was polite and helpful. The room was spacious with sofa, table, two chairs, microwave and eating utensils. The bathroom was separate from the toilet. It was a little bit inconvenience. We did not drive and did not realise that the hotel was located at a slope. It was a little bit difficult...

Our second visit to Launceston and we were impressed enough with Balmoral on York to pay a return visit. We'd booked and paid well in advance for the room and cooked breakfast and it was again great value for the price. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and quiet. Not the flashiest place around but as long as there's a hot...

From the outside the hotel looks a bit ugly but dont let it spook you. The rooms are nice, spacious and comfy. The staff are also very friendly and helpful. Another plus the hotel is that they offer netflix so in a cold rainy day you can stay inside and watch some movies.

Staff and owners here are very helpful and polite. Great easy convenient parking even though you are basically at the edge of the city centre. Great elevated views in the front rooms over much of Launceston and local heritage architecture buildings across the road and down the hill. Rooms spacious with separate lounge/dining area with LED TV (Many rooms have...

The Balmoral on York was easy to find and the staff there were very friendly and helpful, and the rooms were clean. We paid for breakfast with our room rate and found that there was plenty of choices to be had and would suit most tastes. It's central location allowed us to walk around town to view the sites, would...

Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and spacious. Hotel was recommended by a friend as a good place to start our Tassie holiday and I totally agree. Good off-street parking. Modest continental breakfast.

I hate writing bad reviews so I am gonna make up by writing some positive ones later but y'all know that feeling when you are so mad you just need to vent. Anyways, we came back from the Cradle Mountains and checked ourselves in at the hotel. Everything went smooth so far albeit the hotel looking anything but a "4-star"...

Hello As per my phone call to you first thing in the morning, we are extremely sorry for the inconvenience caused by the situation. I feel it is appropriate to confirm our position: I have owned the business for ten years (3,650+ days) and this have never happened before. We do have two night managers, one is overseas and the...

Initial impressions can be very mis-leading From the outside it looks like a converted industrial building - the reception area is horribly cramped and dark (with traffic cones in it when we arrived!!!) but............ the rooms are very spacious, modern, well equipped and really well maintained Beds especially are top rate, good views across the city Staff are extremely pleasant...

I had a great four-day stay at Balmoral on York early last month. It was a great base from which to explore Tasmania and visit family. The motel is close to the centre of town. I walked there and back each morning. The motel doesn't look much from the outside, but looks can be deceiving: the rooms were nicely renovated...
