Reviewed 3 May 2014

This hotel was recommended to us by the travel centre in town and it was all that we needed. It was 5 minutes walk into the centre of town but still very quiet. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with a good bathroom. We would be happy to stay there again.

Room Tip: Get a room at the back as it is further away from the road

The location was across the street from the city park. It was a long walk to the riverfront and the gorge. We were given an upgrade in one of the lower level rooms with a view of the park. The room itself was very nice. There were no grounds to speak of. It was just a very average hotel.

We travelled to Launceston for a wedding, and only stayed overnight. We were a family group and between our travelling party we had booked 4 rooms. On arrival it was mayhem. 2 rooms ready, 2 not, but the woman on check in had absolutely no idea what was going on. In the end all we could do was laugh. I never signed anything to say i was there or what room we were staying in, on check in or check out. There were others in the lobby with similar problems. One of our group was given a key to a room that already had someone else's belongings in it.

The room was ok, had a bit of a smell to it, but was clean enough. They use those wall mounted toiletries such as 2 in 1 in the shower, and hand soap which was completely empty next to the sink.

We ate breakfast in the restaurant and it was basic but adequate.

The driveway was a nightmare for the elderly member of our party, much too steep to not have hand rail down the whole length of it.

I wouldn't stay there again based on their complete unprofessionalism.

The hotel is located across the road from the city park and an easy walk to city centre. The hotel looks tired on the outside but is in fact relatively modern inside. The overall structure appears to be the original but with a splash of paint, newish decor and facelift to the bathroom - it was adequate for the price we paid. The only downside was the shower head. It's a great shower head but positioned so low, that if you are taller than 1.70 - 1.75 metres, you would have to bend your knees to get your head wet.
The great thing we liked about this hotel was that the rooms don't get serviced everyday unless you requested it! We think more hotels should have the same policy!

We booked our stay at the hotel through Flight Centre and expected a reasonable standard of accommodation. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed with the overall presentation of the room. The furniture was old and dilapidated, the walls were stained with smelly nicotine stains and the furnishings were torn and dirty. The whole place must have been in its original condition from when it was first commissioned. I don't think that hotels build in the seventieth qualify for heritage listing and one could be forgiven to think that management believe that it is a heritage property. Best avoided.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel with better standards!

Our last night in Tassie, we got an upstairs room at the front overlooking the park. The room was very clean, a good size and modern as was the en-suite. The bed was comfortable with a light weight quilt and plenty of pillows to choose from. They also supplied the bath gel and shampoo. The wifi was free, 300mB maximum per day.

The restaurant overlooked the park, they didn't have any Tassie cider and only one Tassie wine company to choose from which was disappointing but the wine was nice. The olive oil served with the bread was rancid (tasted like it was filtered through a wet sock). The soup entree was nice and the mains were also pretty good (1 lamb & 1 wallaby). A large group (15 - 20) came in and the rest of the restaurant was forgotten about as there were only two waitresses. We were asked if we wanted dessert, I was given the menu, nothing said by the waitress, after a long wait and much deliberation I chose a dessert to then be told that they don't make that one anymore, I couldn't be bother going through the wait again so I chose nothing.

We stayed just the one night and enjoyed it a lot. We had a premium room (#6); the room was a good size, the bed linens very good quality, the mattresses comfortable, a newish LCD tv, the shower large, very hot and strong. Although the bathroom still needs an update and the living area needs brightening up (eg. hang some colourful photos of the region), on the whole this was a very good "value for money" choice.
