Auldington is a former convent converted into a hotel, this was enough to gain my interest and make a booking .
Our initial response from the reception area and grounds was that this would be a charming, quiet, serene peaceful experience and this is exactly how I would sum up our brief visit.
We stayed at this hotel for one night en route to the south eastern areas of Tasmania. We arrived late in the evening and did have some trouble locating the hotel in the dark - it is next to a school and there is a small low sign at the beginning of the driveway.
The receptionist was helpful and able to recommend eating establishments which would be open for a late meal.
The interior of the hotel has been restored/renovated leaving intact the significant architectural features - including a grand stairway - there is a small lift as well. Modern artworks by local artists feature in the hallways and reception areas. Rooms are light and clean with a modern ensuite and other necessary comforts. Supplies for a cold breakfast are provided in the room, and are adequate for the traveller.
Auldington was a wonderful hotel to start our exploration of Tasmania from, and I would choose to stay here again when visiting Launceston.

We stayed at Auldington for four nights whilst in Launceston for a wedding. We booked through wotif on a very good rate of around $109-134 a night. For the price it was about as good as one could hope for. The rooms were quite modern and well furnished. The bathroom was excellent with a nice deep bath and good ammenities. Everything was clean although there was a very strong odour of cigarette smoke in our room. Thankfully the windows could be opened and we could could air the room as we were quite happy with the position and did not want to move. The soundproofing wasnt fantastic being an ex convent with echoey walls.
The hotel is located uphill from the CBD about 10-15 min walk away which was fine for us as we had a car anyway to get out and about.
The main criticism I have of this place was that it seemed a bit unprofessional. The reception area was unattended when we arrived with a vacuum cleaner lying against the wall. The guest service agent came out and allthough friendly was still chewing food (everyone needs to eat but not a good look) as she came out.
Overall a good hotel for the price. It is just the small touches of professionalism that would make a really big difference.
