We visited Launceston and stayed at the Riverside Hotel/Motel - which is located at the rear of the hotel on the West Tamar Highway 6 km's outside Launceston. The location was excellent with easy access to most of the attractions in Launceston.
The rooms have been recently renovated and included A/C, tea/coffee facilities, guest laundry, fridge.
Off street parking is available
Considering the location - the rooms were quiet and tastefully done.
While this is not a 5 star facility - is is clean, neat, tidy and well worthwhile staying at when visiting Launceston.
Meal were available at the hotel dining room - in fact the hotel guarantees a table for house guests - the food was excellent, reasonably priced, tasty and plentiful.
The staff were very friendly and courteous - in fact we found out that the hotel/motel is part of the ALH chain (that is - it is a WOOLWORTHS owned hotel/motel) - so standards have to be maintained.
