The best thing about this hotel is the location, right in the heart of Launceston. There is also free parking on site and free wifi. The hotel is a heritage school building, with rooms that have been updated to 70's style and standards. We had booked a standard room and arrived on a Sunday, to find the hotel largely empty. Nevertheless we were given a room on the last floor (2 flights of stairs! No elevator, one has to carry his/her suitcases. Our room had views to another wing, the drab interior courtyard carpark, ie... no views. Like the hotel, Launceston on a Sunday looked like a ghost town, with deserted streets and most restaurants closed or almost empty. A depressing athmosphere. Both the city and the hotel got populated on Monday, which may suggest that it could be more of a business and commuter workforce dormitory. The room was clean and acommodates 3 people. Everything worked but we missed having a toaster and a tea infuser. There was only the kettle. The fridge bar well suplied but expensive. The hotel lobby and the on site restaurant have a period decor including with many antique and vintage items, for those fans of old times charm. We spent 2 nights are room was cleaned /serviced. Reception staff was friendly and helpful. They supplied a walking itinerary of Launceston city, which did not correspond, in parts, with the reality, and took us to some drab and uninteresting streets, or we just got lost. Breakfast is available on site, as well as room service, we cannot comment as we did not used them. Also noticed a small gym, whick looks like a rushed addition. The hotel corridors and rooms have a residual smell of tobacco and I noticed staff smoking at start of shift in the morning. So overall a bit of a mixed bag. Not overly impressed but ok if you need a clean and decent place to sleep.
