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.
