“Fabulous service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

The fabulous service from Balmoral on York began when I booked my stay. Trevor was so friendly and advised that as I was arriving early, he would try to have my room ready as soon as he could. Upon arrival, I was greeted warmly by name, provided with a map and given some advice about the town. My room was clean with a view of Launceston, and there was plenty of parking. The hotel is in a great location, moments from the mall. The continental breakfast was plentiful and the staff so friendly. I would highly recommend this hotel to others and would stay here again.

We stayed for 1 night at the Balmoral on York. The room was very large and even had a side area within the room with another bed. The breakfast, which was included, was spectacular! They had a huge variety and even offered us a cooked breakfast. The customer service was also top notch. Everyone who works there was friendly and happy to accommodate any of our requests. We would definitely stay here again.

I have stayed in a few hotels in Australia and Europe but the Balmoral is a nice place. Don't be fooled by the exterior the rooms are clean, functional and well appointed. Management is doing a job other hotels should take note of. The cooked breakfast was made to order and very fresh. Will return no doubt.

Balmoral isn't fancy, but is extremely reliable and friendly. Location is handy for everything in town. Easy walking distance to a good range of restaurants. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Also nice and quiet. Hot breakfast was cooked to order. Easy free parking onsite.
I'd definitely recommend it as good value for the price.

Room Tip: Bed and cooked breakfast packages are best value.

Several factors made our stay at the Balmoral the success it was. First we had the reasonable pricing; then the staff going out of their way to help us out (we arrived way before our check-in time and they guided us through everything open in the area around Christmas); add the free parking.
Then there was the room itself, which comfortably offered all the facilities we could ask for (sans a safe) and featured a renovated bathroom. And last, there's the free wifi with absolutely no hassles.
Seriously, we couldn't ask for anything more right at the centre of Launceston.

This property is situated conveniently within the centre of Launceston, only a block or two from the main shopping mall. The room was spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable and the manager, Trevor Donaldson, was very helpful and obliging, as were all the staff we dealt with. There was an efficient air conditioning system in the room, making for a comfortable nights sleep. We ate dinner in the dining room and selected from a comprehensive food and wine menu, which supports local wine makers. Breakfast is served in the dining room, whilst lunch is available Monday to Friday by room service.
