It was good to be able to walk into the City, through the magnificent gardens for a look.The trees in the gardens were magnificent and varied. The setting on the villa looked out on a little private garden setting, even it was just minutes away by foot from a big shopping centre. It is also on the main road to... More

This was a great option for myself travelling with four children. All the usual amenities, spacious, clean and tidy. Close to shops and eateries. Free Wi-fi in all rooms with no limits. I arrived early and the staff were happy to check us in two hours early at no extra charge.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment and it was a very good. It is close to a shopping centre and hotels and the staff were very helpful. We had facilities to cook in the room but chose to eat out most of our 7 days stay recently.

We had a 3 bedroom apartment which was adequately furnished with sufficient amenities. There are apparently more glamorous apartments but it was not the case with ours. The location was fine as it was an easy walk into the heart of Launceston or to the Seaport but if you are expecting luxury this is not for you. The beds were... More

Our apartment was a 3 bedroom upstairs/downstairs villa in a older style building. Rooms were smallish but adequate for our needs. Two bathrooms - nice big one with bath upstairs. Well equipped kitchen with proper stove and microwave. TV was a small LCD located downstairs, free-to-air channels only, but free unlimited wifi internet more than compensated. Decor was a little...

Loved the mattress, after terrible nights at our last 2 motels, it was really appreciated to finally sleep on a quality mattress. While the villa wasn't "flash" it was incredibly clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again. Staff in reception were friendly and helpful.

Friendly helpful greeting. Complimentary newspaper in room and another on departure! Nice quiet location and close to kmart, coles and several other stores. Nicely laid out room with good sized bathroom and kitchenette. Effective heater. What's not to like!

I stayed here with my mum for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom villa. The villa was clean and comfortable. There is a lovely courtyard where we could sit and have a coffee on a nice day.

Great staff, very friendly. Amenities are good also. Biggest downfall though is they DO book sporting teams and the motel is not monitored after 7 or 8. Therefore the noise I have and am experiencing escalates once the motel is unattended. Suggest you ask are there any "teams" there during your proposed booking period.
