I hate writing bad reviews so I am gonna make up by writing some positive ones later but y'all know that feeling when you are so mad you just need to vent. Anyways, we came back from the Cradle Mountains and checked ourselves in at the hotel. Everything went smooth so far albeit the hotel looking anything but a "4-star"... More

Initial impressions can be very mis-leading From the outside it looks like a converted industrial building - the reception area is horribly cramped and dark (with traffic cones in it when we arrived!!!) but............ the rooms are very spacious, modern, well equipped and really well maintained Beds especially are top rate, good views across the city Staff are extremely pleasant...

I had a great four-day stay at Balmoral on York early last month. It was a great base from which to explore Tasmania and visit family. The motel is close to the centre of town. I walked there and back each morning. The motel doesn't look much from the outside, but looks can be deceiving: the rooms were nicely renovated... More

Great place. Awesome location and the customer service was outstanding. Very clean room and spacious. We had a room that overlooked the carpark but absolutely no complaints as the room is so comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic but the best part was the service. Friendly & welcoming. We are coming back in a few days and that was mentioned as soon... More

We had a deluxe double room, which we found to be of a very good size, very comfortable and supplied all we needed. Good value. The location is handy for walking around Launceston and the onsite carpark was very handy.

Balmoral on York was in a very convenient location. Close to restaurants and shops. We stayed here just 1 night before our flight. Breakfast was good. Fruits, pastries, muffins and yoghurt. Room was a good size. Bit outdated furniture but that doesn't bother me. Rooms are clean and tidy. Netflix available with decent room wifi.
