Best Western Plus hotel is centrally located in Launceston and walking distance to many attractions. We stayed in one of the recently renovated rooms which included a Nespresso coffee maker and frother. The rooms are large, comfortable and clean, and the large windows overlook the town. There is free wi-fi in the rooms and throughout the hotel and there are...

Had two nights at this hotel while touring around Tasmania but will say have stayed at a lot better hotels than this one. it was a very average room that we had on the 5th floor but the bathroom was far below average standard i would even put it in the extremely poor category as bathrooms go, fittings were old...

Stayed here for 1nght before joining a tour. Conveniently located for exploring Launceston. Had a massive room, that was very clean and had everything I needed. Reception staff (Fern??) were very helpful and efficient. Can't really comment on the price of rooms as I had Best Western Employee discount rate, but they appeared to be in line with most BW...

A recent trip with 30 other golfers to Tasmania saw us spend 3 nights here. The rooms were of ample size for a guys twin share, beds were comfortable, location is perfect close to parks, the mall and restaurants. Bonus of having a good bar ( little bit expensive we thought but convenient) and a very reasonable buffet breakfast, along...

ok hotel, reasonably comfortable, in a good location, with a reasonable price, but let down by a very frustrating electronic room key system that just doesn't work. In a 3 day stay had to have the card recoded several times, and even then it didn't unlock the door first time. Kept the key away from mobiles and other magnetic cards...

We stayed at this hotel from 21st-24th February while visiting from the UK. The staff were welcoming and we had a lovely comfortable room located on the 6th floor. We came to Launceston to visit the Cataract Gorge for our Ruby Wedding anniversary and the hotel is within walking distance to this. We enjoyed a meal in the Tram bar...

Clean quiet room, a bit on the small side, but it did have a small table, 3 chairs and a small desk. Clean, comfy king sized bed. The free & unlimited wi-fi worked well.

Well-located, near the centre of the city. The first impression was excellent as we were checked in by a very pleasant young man, helpful with information about both the hotel and the locality. The room was spacious and comfortable, seemingly newly-furnished and the fittings were good quality. All-in-all, very good value. Only problems were the shortage of parking others have...
