Stayed here for two nights in March 2012. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean, comfortable and a good size. It's a charming and glamorous old building that has been restored beautifully. Location is excellent. Just a couple of minutes walk into the central mall, or down to City Park.

OK, I won't lie to you, I had studiously avoided staying at the HGC Launceston on the grounds that it had a reputation for being a bit old and tired. When I was booked in for work, I couldn't be bothered resisting, and I have to say, was exceptionally pleasantly surprised. The old girl has had a revamp, the rooms are newly furbished, clean and well appointed, not too big, not too small, just right for collapsing into after a long day of work and travel. I didn't dine there, but the restaurant was pumping and so was the bar, so obviously they are doing something right. Service was courteous and very prompt, even when it was heaving with people at check out. The HGC Launceston is not a shiny modern hotel, but it is a perfect place for that touch of charm and glam and will not disappoint business travellers, tourists and families alike.

Stayed at the Grand Mercure for one night. Nice large room and very reasonably priced. Reception/ staff were friendly and good place to have pre dinner drinks in the lounge/bar downstairs. Set in older part of town with heritage buildings and walked down to the local farmers market (Saturdays) for a g8 cup of coffee.
