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.

We enjoyed our stay here, the room is a good size with a large, comfy bed. The bathroom felt as if it was recently renovated and was well presented with nice local toiletries. The room has a tv, sofa, small fridge and a kettle. Note that some rooms are upstairs and you will need to carry your luggage up one flight of stairs, request a ground floor room if this is a bother for you. Car parking is very close and free. Town is a 5-10 minute walk, restaurants are close by.

Had two nights at the Hideaway - check in was friendly and helpful with local knowledge Location is great - easy walk to the CBD and lots of dining options The loft room was very nice and comfortable - shower very compact though The downside is lugging your suitcases up a staircase to get to your door

We stayed 3 nights in a deluxe room. It was fabulous. Staff are very friendly. Check in was a breeze. Everything we needed for a lovely few days away. Location wise it’s perfect too. The only (minor) issue was sound proofing from the room below. Otherwise we would rate it 5 without hesitation. And will definitely stay again when we come back.

Beautiful room, tastefully decorated. Very friendly staff on arrival. Comfy bed and helpful information for the town. Great location to all amenities. Stayed in a studio room which was fine for 2 days. However, had people staying above us and could hear them walking around and talking late into the night which was frustrating especially with someone who used the toilet A LOT throughout the night. Provided with glasses and cutlery but difficult to clean with the bathroom sink. Very helpful staff when hot water system broke down and provided us with an alternative room to shower.

Location location location to start. The parking is private and ample. Walking distance to Lonnie's "Lygon Street". The apartments are larger than the norm, spotlessly clean and quality beds and bathroom. Very warm check in.

Stayed on way to airport and had the afternoon exploring Launceston. Easy walk into town and plenty of parking. Large very clean room. Reception appears to have cutlery and microwaves to use if you wanted to use these facilities rather than going out.

A fantastic place to stay. Right in the middle of where you want to be in Launceston and big comfy spacious suites! Clare was an amazing help to us when a noise was waking us up and was kind enough to offer us another room. The beds were comfy, the bathrooms spacious and it was nice to have a little area with couches and a tv for relaxing in the evenings. Thanks so much for our stay, we loved it!
