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...

We stayed at Areca for approximately 1 week. Great breakfast included everyday. Staff very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. They even took us to airport! Very clean comfortable and close to everything. Can't recommend highly enough! Will definitely be back, Thanks Renee & Shane. Deb and Trev Geelong

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 came to Launceston to spend a quick weekend trip visiting friends. Having left Tassie some 15 years ago for Melbourne, I know what is around and is cheaper than Melbourne prices but never knew of this little place. What a little hidden gem. It's close to the Windmill hill (Aquatic centre) and a quick walk to the City park....

The hotel has new owners so things are changing and improving. We got a King room at an awesome rate and had brekky included for free. The owners cooked it themselves and were very accommodating our whole visit. Will book here when next in town.

A lovely boutique modern clean accommodation with a Chinese heritage twist. A delicious big breakfast served also. As well as a small breakfast buffet bar. Great location for an overnight or couple of days stay.

We stayed for 2 nights. There are only 9 rooms in the hotel. 4 rooms on the first floor and 5 rooms on the 2nd floor. Room and bathroom were clean, bed was comfy, dirty marks on the towel though. There's no bathtub but they provided 2 small bottle of BATH FOAM?! and NO SHAMPOO?! Got told by reception lady...

We urgently needed someone where to stay in Launceston due to medical appointments. There wasn't many options and we decided on Areca Boutique Hotel. We were very happy with our choice, I have limited mobility due to recent surgery and they were happy to accommodate us downstairs so I didn't have to negotiate the stairs. The room was clean and...

Despite the relative newness of this establishment, the quality and functionality of this 'Boutique Hotel' fell well short of its advertised 4-star rating - which in my experience would suggest a deluxe guest experience. Whilst the room is certainly adequate, the furniture and decorating is dated, and the towels thin and scratchy. The hairdryer provided was only a cheap travel...

“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.”
