Batman Fawkner Inn
Ranked #20 of 30 Hotels in Launceston
Reviewed 2 December 2013

I stayed in a room with an ensuite and while the furniture and fittings are dated, they are perfectly adequate for a 3 day stay to see Launceston and surrounds. The Inn is close to shops and restaurants but there is also a large kitchen and eating area with cooking facilities and cutlery/crockery if you wish to eat in and save some money. My room had a tv but otherwise there is a separate tv room. While there is no elevator, there is a luggage lift to take your bags upstairs, a laundry and an iron provided cheerfully when requested. I found it the perfect place to stay as there are shops/restaurants around the corner, the Transit Centre bus terminal nearby, 10 minute walk to the Art Gallery,15 min walk to Cataract Gorge (spectacular!) and my bus to Cradle Mountain collected me at the door. Good, cheap place to stay on a quiet street.

SERIOUSLY RENT THE SHEETS??? For 4$ each????
Or the hostel thinks the costumers are idiots or the owner is an idiot!
Of course I would need linen on my bed!!! More than ever if u show me a really dirty mattress and pillow!!!
The girl on the reception helpful like a ice machine in the South Pole, tell me that is for cleaning expensive ( they must have the most expensive wash machine ever!!!Or a laundry that wash a sheet a time??) and it is in the website!!Liar!!! It is not,why is not? Coz is stupid!! It's like I go to the restaurant and they make me pay an extra 2$ coz they need to wash the dishes and other 2$ for RENTING THE CUTLERY ???
Of course it is on the price!!! Or the 70$ I gave then is for the 1meter X 2 meter amazing room with not room for 2 people standing!! Should I pay more for the stains on the cousins and mattress the dust and the stunk??

But ohhh they offer free wifi!!!!!!

Give me the sheet and I'll pay my Internet If I need it... I think the linen are really more essential!!!

Do not stay here if you want to be asked a stupid question as DO YOU NEED LINEN ON YOUR BED!!

Whilst the building is heritage listed it is more than comfortable. The room was warm and the bedding adequate. The location is the feature as it enables good access to all parts of the city centre. If your not looking for 5 star and just want a clean room this is a good choice.

For the rate, we were pleasantly surprised with the place, and enjoyed the stay here! The place is quite charming, quiet and clean. We spent a couple of nights here, and I thought it was great value. The kitchen setup is adequate if you want to heat up meals and all.

Stayed: August 2012, travelled with family

Enjoyed the rustic atmosphere of this hotel/backpackers. Was good value for the money, with clean room and close/handy to the heart of Launceston. Kitchen facility was good, with all that was needed to cook a meal for ourselves. The manageress on duty was friendly, and willing to help with our needs. Having a fridge in our room was a big help as we had picked up a couple of groceries earlier during the day. Would have no trouble recommending Batman Fawkner Inn to anyone who was looking for affordable accommodation.
