Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Stayed 12-15th October. The room was spacious and spotless with a two seater couch and extremely comfortable bed. Although we were on the third floor and slept with the window open, there was minimal road noise. A full breakfast, including espresso coffee, etc, was included in our tariff. The original TV was faulty, and when we commented to the owner at breakfast the first morning that there was a problem, it was replaced before we had finished breakfast. The restaurant, although small and quaint, provided excellent meals at a reasonable price. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Would stay again.

A little aged but met all the usual criteria. Clean, roomy and good value for money. Breakfast was particularly good...cooked to order and the best we had in Tassie ... Hotel is in good location , close to everything and service was commendable . Recommended

The entire team at the hotel where fantastic. I have not found this quality of service in a long time. While it is not a five star hotel, if you are looking for a great value hotel with great service, Balmoral on York is the place to stay.

Stayed at this hotel for one night as a couple after reading some reviews on tripadvisor. For the money the room is everything that you would expect. Also very close to the heart of Launceston.

The real highlight was the staff, probably the best service I've received at a hotel/motel by far. They went out of their way to make sure our stay was comfortable. Couldn't have asked for anything more...

We stayed one night on our recent trip to Tasmania before heading out to Cradle Mountain. The hotel was recommended by a friend who had stayed previously. Our room had a great view of the city, was spacious and comfortable, and had everything you need. The hotel is in a great location, close to the CBD. Small restaurant offering great quality, good priced meals. Breakfast was included in our rate and was absolutely first class, cooked to order, none of this "pre-cooked" bacon and eggs left to get cold in a buffet. We would definitely recommend this hotel as great value for money, friendly service, and the free on-site parking was a bonus also. Some of the bigger hotels who charge WAY more could learn a thing or two from the Balmoral on York!

Room Tip: Front rooms have a great view over the city but the trade-off is the traffic noise.

Amazing value in a great location and includes an excellent cooked breakfast included inthe tariff
I have paid more in a dodgy country motel. Fantastic standard for the price. Staff friendly and helpful and very good car parking with no charge.
Recommend. If only we could get this value in other cities

We chose this hotel from the good reviews in Tripadvisor and took another five couples with us last week hoping all would be well. It was.
The hotel is located in the "CBD", for Launceston this means a group of buildings slightly taller than those next to it. You can walk everywhere from it's location.
The building itself has been recently renovated, the room was large and came with a great matress.
Our biggest surprise was the staff. They went out of their way to make everyone feel special and to ensure that everything was OK during our stay. Parking behind the hotel is not undercover and on a steep slope. Best to unload at Reception and then park the car.
The price of $130 per night was great plus they had a hot breakfast special at $10 pp. Couldn't ask for more and we definately will go back if we are in Launceston again.
