The hotel is the old Australian style of a few rooms above what used to be the pub, but is now a very nice restaurant and bar. Great food, friendly service. The room was spacious and very clean. Facing the street which is a fairly noisy one way street in the middle of town, but with double glazing to prevent the noise. The only downside was the lack of internet. There is a network with the name of the hotel but despite being able to get through 3 screens to register to pay the fee, it didn't work. The wait staff said the server was down. That was to become a regular refrain on my trip to Tasmania. If it is down then why not turn the computer off so that it is not showing? Or (as is more likely) they just use it for their own use but can' be bothered supplying it to customers. That's fine for Launceston locals but if you want international customers then they need to get with the plan.
