My wife and I have just returned from 11 days in Tasmania. We flew into Launceston having booked the Areca on line. We found our room really comfortable, clean and spacious. We stayed 2 nights, breakfast was included in our tariff and it was excellent. The owners were friendly and gave us good advise in terms of what to do...

Came in late on Friday night and right away felt right at home with Renee's warm welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and it was even more refreshing to experience that warm welcome again in the morning. The room and bed were great and noise was non existent. Would highly recommend 👍

We stayed in the heritage part of the hotel, which was roomy and decorated for period. Happily stay there again. It is uphill from the city centre but an easy walk. Parking can be a little tight but patience will get you there.

This hotel is in a great location, central to everything in Launceston. My room was spacious and had an updated bathroom. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the double glazing ensured the room was warm at night and no noise from the street was audible. Reynee and Shane were fantastic hosts, cooking a delicious breakfast each morning. A highly recommended...

Walking distance to everything. Best accommodation after 7 nights in Tasmania staying at a different hotel each night. The price was very reasonable, the room was immaculate the staff were friendly. So glad we picked this one.

Areca is a pleasant place to stay but is sadly lacking in maintenance. During our stay the bathroom door wouldn't stay closed, the toilet seat was loose and sliding around during use and the window also would not stay closed. The milk left in the fridge was frozen as the fridge was not working properly either. This spoilt what could...

“We were accommodated in room #15 both nights. We did not hear a sound. We opened a window briefly to listen & even then no intrusive traffic or industry noise. No other guest noises through our walls or doors even though we were only a few steps from the motel entrance & the morning breakfast dining room activity on both mornings.”
