Review of Parklane Motel
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 Jan 2024via mobile
While there was nothing seriously wrong with the place, there were many things not right. You would expect a 4 person room to have things like 4 sets of glasses or cutlery, but nope. The car parks were also filled with old junk (lounge suite, fridge etc.) and are a very tight fit, if someone doesn't park perfectly don't expect to get your car in.

The rooms are very tired and dated. Our room had gaudy pink tiles in the bathroom with a shub rather than a proper shower. We used the laundry once, paid the $2 to use the washing machine which didn't complete its cycle and we returned to find clothes that hadn't been rinsed or spun.

The many notes around the rooms made the whole place feel unfriendly - I get that extra costs have to be charged in some cases but a simple welcome book like most motels have that outline the rules is far nicer.

Overall though the rooms were clean and the guests were quiet. If you're just looking for a place to stay this place is OK. It worked for us and I'd stay here again if it was just for a night or two.

This motel is clean and functional. My only comment: do NOT stay at this motel if you ride a motorbike. It's on such a steep hill it's almost impossible to ride a motorbike up to reception. Even the carpark is on a slope!

Based on the recent reviews I had low expectations but it was ok from my perspective. The room was tired but generally clean. A really deep clean would make a big improvement. Staff were helpful and friendly. Having a laundry on site was a nice bonus.

Great place to stay if you want to visit pro’s or buy drugs.
Worst hotel in Tasmania.
But most people don’t know what’s happening under their noises.
Police come there often with fights going on etc.
People need to read the reviews and look at the photos.

Reviewed 12 January 2023 via mobile

This has been by far our worst accommodation experience in Launceston. The staff are helpful, and it is the cheapest room in the city, but it is in desperate need of an upgrade. Such as shame as it’s in a lovely location. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment during summer and the room was hot and stuffy with hard beds, old furniture, no aircon, stains on bedding, noisy neighbours, steep car park and a very dated bathroom. Only use as a desperate choice!

Reviewed 22 December 2022

Self contained room, missing majority of cooking utensils one would expect. Bathroom incredibly outdated and window in shower having to be open, meant multiple 'Good Morning' to passing by guests. Room service continually knocking on door from 7:30am checking on when leaving (despite a 10am exit).

Kids reported an uncomfortable sleep in single beds, overall no intention of returning. A shame, as a really good location right on the park.
