Nice middle of the road hotel. Nice well maintained rooms, quick elevators and convenient parking. Good base for touring. When arriving by car keep a lookout for Earl Street, entrance is off main street.

The hotel is a bit outdated particularly the bathroom and the faucets and shower needs to be replaced. However, it has free parking and free internet which is a big plus. Breakfast which is also free (there are coupons in the local travelers magazine that can be used) but quality is so so. Location is good but Launceston is a...

At first glance, this place has true value for money... At second glance there are a few rough edges. First major issue is the parking - $6 a day for a tiny public carpark that fills up so fast you're best not to leave your spot (if you ever find one!). When I asked staff what we could do when...

Dear Lovtogetaway, Thank you for your review of the BEST WESTERN PLUS Launceston after your recent stay. Unfortunately car park availability is a challenge faced by many hotels and as space in the CBD is at a premium we are very limited on ways in which we can rectify this. My apologies you had trouble finding a parking space on...

The only reason for not giving and excellent rating was the paper thin walls. I was kepted up most of the night by a neighbouring rooms TV. Besides that, it was a great place to stay. Close walk to great cafes. Very nice breakfast in the hotels restaraunt. Very friendly staff. Cheap hotel parking. Just needs better sound proofing. Thanks

I was travelling with friends in Launceston in Tasmania. First impression of this hotel is old style outside and modern look inside. Then we are greeted by friendly and helpful stuff. Most of my friends were eager to contact friends and families afar, then they found their free wifi helpful. Only minus though, mattress a bit soft for me

We had the best stay this year during the 10 days festival of dance. Enjoyed the breakfast package and all staff were friendly and helpful including our wonderful maid (Pam ? ) thankyou. Much improved only suggestion is perhaps more variety in room service menu for snacks for kids/teens
