We booked a family room with breakfast. The hotel location is in the cbd very easy walk to the restaurant. The breakfast is simple but fresh and good. The room and bed are clean and above average room size. It makes our stayed very comfortable.

Our room was a good size. Bed was a king and very comfortable. There was absolutely no outside noise at all. Very quite. Reception was friendly and willing to have a chat. Only problem was parking, we arrived at 4pm to find no spaced left to park our car.

We stayed here during the National Band Championships. The hotel is very basic but the staff are friendly and you will not get a more central location than this. The breakfast is about $18 per person which is reasonable. I found a nice added bonus was the free Wifi and the laundry that you can use between about 8am and...

The check-in was quick and the room was adequate, though dated. We stayed in a family room with a queen and two twin size beds which was pretty cramped. The bathroom needs to be updated as the tub/shower were quite old. We stayed during the music festival which is probably why the price was so high.

This hotel, like its counterpart in Hobart, is situated close to the major shopping area in Launceston within easy walking distance. Car parking can be tricky because it is located behind the hotel itself. When you book in to your room you are given a ticket which you must display on your dashboard otherwise you will pick up a $55.00...

Very Convenient location in Launceston. If you want to explore the city by foot it's not a bad location at all. Disliked- No windows open in Room- tiny bathroom- tiny room. Liked- nespresso machine-walking distance to bars, restaurants, parks etc-

We travelled in a group of eight, we loved the convenience to the city, the fantastic Tram Bar and staff. Rooms were great and beds very comfortable.Meals were really good. We would visit again. Our only problem was the late night revellers who chose to party opposite the entrance of the hotel,security could soon fix that.

We enjoyed being able to walk to all our destinations from this motel. They accommodated us by letting us leave our luggage earlier to our checkin time. I would like to see more information on attractions in the room
