A large hotel on the edge of Launceston's CBD. Friendly staff made our stay very enjoyable. The room was generously sized, clean and comfortable. Breakfasts were varied and tasty. Onsite parking but not undercover. There are several restaurants and cafes within easy walking distance.

Good service, clean and well presented rooms, solid value accommodation. Renovated hospital accommodation One is hard pressed to fault. On the perimeter of the CBD offers and opportunity for a short and pleasant walk past good quality cafes and restaurants to the city.

Room charge did not reflect room quality/standard. Excessive cost for sub standard room. Credit card 'bond' can take between 5 - 7 days to be cancelled. Hallway noisy during night. Window blind does not provide full blockout - can see through sections when closed.

Recently refurbished but on a shoestring the wide endless corridors and rooms made me relive terrible memories of stays in a hospital. Rooms were clean but the location is not mid city and you do need a car.

The Hotel itself is impressive as were the staff and restaurant however completely unsuitable for a person who has significant mobility difficulties. The bathroom did not work despite the addition of shower chair; it was impossible to use the chair in the space provided. The bedroom itself worked well, only issue was the mattress which certainly had some springs, but...

Clean, quiet modern rooms are attended to by a terrific staff who is very pleasant and personable.
