Penny Royal apartments are a quaint village style accommodation on the outskirts of Launceston. The furnishings are generally comfortable and of a good standard although when we stayed some items in the apartment were in need of maintenance. For instance, some of the tiles on the floor in the bathroom were loose and unsteady. The buildings appear to be quite old so if you have noisy neighbours when you stay (as we did) you’ll be kept awake by sounds coming from the other rooms. We had a downstairs apartment and the people upstairs made a fair bit of noise as they walked (or perhaps ran) around in their apartment. The complex is also close to a highway so it can be noisy in the mornings when the traffic builds up.
One thing that was particularly annoying was the lighting arrangement in the bathroom. Instead of switches on the wall they have installed movement sensors which automatically turn on the lights and bathroom fan. The arrangement is far from perfect as the light in the bathroom (which didn’t have windows) would turn off while you were having a shower or a shave. This was needlessly annoying and unnecessary. I’m sure it keeps the power bills down but it’s not a great experience for the customer and would probably prevent us staying there again.
We also had difficulty getting the soap dispenser filled. We left a note asking the people who serviced the room to fill it up and got a message saying it had been checked but it was still empty. However on the plus side, we had an issue with access for my mother who is elderly and has had a knee operation and this was solved quickly and with great consideration so I’m sure the issue with the room servicing was an oversight.
WiFi internet access is not free which it should be considering the price of the accommodation.
