“What an amazing place to stay!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2013

I was lucky enough to be able to stay at this hotel and had a wonderful time and the best sleep in ages! It is seriously like stepping back in time, the staff were lovely and the food at breakfast and in the restaurant were really nice xx

Room Tip: the hotel room i had was very quiet, on the second floor and the bathroom was very modern.

This accomadation was a last minute find after seeing a little advert for it on a local map. Fabulous location being so close to more or less everything. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. We paid $250 for a large room for two nights. The room had a balcony and a spa bath but it the room itself was kitsch but I like kitsch so that's ok. The room is very quiet and comfortable. The Three Steps Restaurant is gorgeous with middle of the road but tasty and generous portioned food, the oysters were very fresh and delicous. I have gone a tad bit nuts with oysters while in Tassie. Yum Yum Yum!!! Try and get a table near the woodfire in winter. This restaurant has more character that anyone would know what to do with!! It's interior is gorgeous.
I would stay again for its location and spaciousness, its unusual decor and quiet rooms. No boring modern characterless furniture here.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Colonial Laucenston. The owner Dale was a delightful man. The staff there where so lovely and very helpful. Our first cheery face was Sherry on Reception. She was very pleasant and very helpful in giving us some tips onour stay in Launceston. We dined at the restaurant that night and also met some very cheery and smiy faces. The waiter Christian share some surfing stories with us and his university path. Tiarna was our waitress as well and also a lovely gir. We also chatted with Andrew the chef there and was also very obliging to help us out with a technical problem with our Television in our room. Not to mention the best meal we had had in Launceston.

My husband and I would definitely recommend this Hotel stay to anyone travelling to Launceston as the history alone of this old Grammar School gave him goosebumps. I wish Dale and the staff a happy and prosperous year at the Colonial Launceston.

Kind Regards,

A lovely historical building in a quiet, picturesque but convenient part of town. Staff very friendly and helpful. The breakfast room was delightful and a delicious breakfast was included in our very reasonable room rate. A great start to our Tasmanian holiday. I would highly recommend this place and stay here whenever I'm in Launceston. The adjoining restaurant which is part of the complex was also very atmospheric, cosy and served a lovely meal. Well done Colonial Launceston!

We arrived late in the day and got the last room available. It was like a small apartment, one large bedroom and a living room with a single bed. Very well equipped with fridge, coffee maker and good supply of toiletries.
Parking was free and front staff helpful. Location was good and close to local restaurants, coffee shops in the area. Very good value.

Room Tip: ask for one bedroom apartment

We booked the Great Getaway Bed and Breakfast deal online. We were attracted by the CBD location and free off street parking. We requested a ground floor room which was granted.
Connie was very welcoming at reception and informed us of the guest facilities, breakfast dining room and on site '3 Steps Restaurant', which we booked for dinner.
The Hotel precinct has a historical ambience.
Our room was spacious with luxury appointments.
We were greeted on our way to breakfast by a blazing open fire in the foyer lounge and enjoyed choosing from an extensive breakfast selection.
Dining at 3 Steps Restaurant included an extensive menu showcasing seasonal local produce.
Clarissa was very informative on check out about local tourist attractions.
