“Very pleasant in the Stables”
Reviewed 1 April 2012

We spent our one night in Launceston at the Clarion City Park Grand, in a gorgeous, comfy and quiet room in the Stables. We felt quite self-contained, almost like being in an apartment, so didn't really get a sense of what the main hotel building is like.
The bathroom was very well equipped, and the robes and slippers were appreciated.
The bedroom had a comfortable king sized bed and decent sized flat screen telly.
The location worked well for us, as we didn't arrive in Launceston til after 4.30 and wanted to visit the Design Centre (knew we wouldn't have time the next day) - it is a short walk from the hotel, so we were able to have a successful visit there before it closed at 5.30.
In the evening we caught a cab to Stillwater restaurant, then walked back to the hotel, to walk off dinner and see a bit of the city on foot.
In the morning my husband walked to Tant pour Tant to get us take away breakfast (a filled baguette, almond croissant and coffees) - both Stillwater and Tant pour Tant are highly recommended.
We'd like to spend more time in Launceston, and would definitely go back to the City Park Grand Stables.

I would like to say that I booked to stay Saturday night in a room with 2 queen beds for my 2 boys and myself and how impressed we are. The apartment was large and extremely well equiped. The beds were very comfortable, everything was exceptionally clean . Also not noisy at night which can be a problem in town. We will definitely return and stay in The Stables.

Nicely appointed and very comfortable. Also next door to the Boags brewery and nearby restaurants and the CBD.

Room Tip: Go the stables. Much bigger rooms with spas

We stayed in an upstairs deluxe room for 3 nights in the stables and loved it. The decor was lovely and the room was very spacious. There was a nice, very clean bathroom, and ample parking. However, if you are not able to carry your luggage up two flights of stairs I wouldn't recommend it, as there was no lift.
The staff were a little "posh" and quite short with us a few times, as we are very casual dressing and obviously didn't look like we should be staying there. However, the room was fantastic, very quiet, very close to the centre of Launceston and a very nice place to stay. Everywhere in Launceston was walking distance, and there were plenty of places to eat. It is a short 5 min walk from the gardens, which are well worth a visit. The bed was comfortable and there is also an iPod dock that you can charge your phone on next to the bed.
I would not hesitate to stay at the Clarion again.

Room Tip: Make sure you don't need a lift. If not, go the top floor!
