Although my stay in the hotel was limited (late arrival and business commitments), the hotel was nicely located close to the centre of town and was within easy walking distance of most attractions including the Cataract Gorge, restaurants and river walks.

I was late booking and had a room for those with mobility impairments. It was spacious, clean and the bed was comfortable. The bed was in a room by itself with double sliding doors that opened to the main living area and had a view of the TV. There was also a sink, microwave and refrigerator along with cutlery, plates, cups and saucers.

The bed was comfortable and the room (located at the end of the building) was quiet with the blinds providing a good level of darkness to allow sleeping after the sun had risen.

Room Tip: Higher floors to the front and northern end of the building offer better views.

Stayed here one night in a two bedroom apartment. New rooms. Spa bath was extra long which was fabulous. Beds were a little hard for my liking but would suit other people. Good location near Black Cow Bistro. Room was a bit of a rabbit warren but would be good for an extended stay and had everything one would need.

I was a little disappointed in the front desk staff - seemed to read off a cue card and weren't in the slightest bit interested. We weren't asked how our stay was, just took the key. The breakfast was also a little mediocre although ours was included in the rate. Note that you still have to pay for kids breakfast $10 even if breakfast is included in your rate. Annoying again.

Also irritatingly you have to pay for parking IF they have a space left. Luckily we were there on a weekend so street parking was plentiful and free, which was just as well as the car parking was full. If I had not been able to park my car, and not been warned of it beforehand, this would have seriously coloured my stay.

Launceston is lovely and worth the trip,

Thnakyou Brisbane 15 for you feedback.
I am pleased you enjoyed the standard of your room and the proximity of our hotel to many nearby features.
I will pass on your comments to the team. In general, the staff are very focused on the needs of our guests as can be seen from the many other comments posted on here from other people staying here. I do appreciate your comments though.
We do have limited parking allotted to us from the car park operators and it is on a user pay system. This is common with the other cbd hotels here in Launceston who have a separate operator managing the carparks. As mentioned, there is metered parking around the hotel which is free after 5 pm weekdays, 12 noon on Saturdays and all day Sundays.
I hope you have the chance to visit Launceston again
Kind Regards

Great location, easy to find - walking distance to Cataract Gorge, riverfront, shops and restaurants. Friendly staff and check-in was a breeze. Good choice for breakfast. The best thing...absolutely amazing king size bed...so comfortable you didn't want to get out!!
