Balmoral on York
Ranked #6 of 31 Hotels in Launceston
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 August 2014

This very sixties motel/hotel is set in the heart of Launceston. It is very comfortable, but no more than other facilities of this type. What sets it aside is the friendly staff and the great restaurant.

The friendly service on arrival was fantastic and we were made to feel very welcome. Room was quite spacious & very clean. Close to centre of town & fantastic position for a 10min walk to Aurora stadium for the football.
Reception staff were more than happy to assist at any time.
Strongly recommend & I would return

Friendly service sets Balmoral apart. Stayed 3 nights and it was comfortable, friendly and nothing could be faulted. Rates are good, food great and staff just amazing.
It may not be the newest hotel around but I would rather have a warm friendly experience than feel like a number somewhere else. I will book in here on my next visit to Tasmania.

Outdated and the carpet was probably the worst I've ever seen in a hotel. However, the bed linen was nice and the bathroom clean. The shower was great. Close to the cbd. The price was a little much for the condition of the hotel and breakfast was not included in our rate.

This has to be the friendliest hotel in Tasmania - which is really saying something. Clean, comfy and great breakfasts both cooked and continental. Excellent internet, great beds, laundry for those who have been on the road for a while, parking out the back, and close to everything you will need. I loved it that there was a teapot in my room. Trevor and his team have thought of everything, truly a lovely experience!

Admittedly the Balmoral on York is not the most beautiful hotel from the outside, but we can easily forgive it. The staff were attentive, knowledgeable and friendly and were happy to point us in the direction of excellent wineries, restaurants and other things to do. The room was neat, spacious, clean and tidy and the bed comfortable. Wifi was included and there was plenty of free parking out the back too. The cooked breakfasts (which were included for us) were amazing! Superbly cooked and served with a smile - we were assured the secret was the freshness of the ingredients. We would definitely stay here again.

This was our 1 night in Launceston on a round-island Tasmania road trip. Just north of the CBD and a quick 3 block walk downhill into the main Brisbane St mall. Parking the in the hotel is free, so saved a lot of hassle and cash not having to drive around the city. Also just a few blocks walk southeast through Prince's Square towards Coles to get supplies.

We were a party of 3 and the 3rd bed was a single in a small cosy alcove, felt almost like a separate room. Fast free wi-fi was a great bonus having been in the west and northwest coast of Tas for 5 days with spotty reception.

Great cooked breakfast was included in the rate and the owners really take care in their service, and getting you what you want. Great place and value when staying in Lonnie !
