I guess we are not a fan of the old English architecture. Though the location allowed for walking to Cataract Gorge and to some restaurants several blocks away in a bustling downtown. (Star of Siam was good.)
The beds were good. But we were disappointed that the free Wi-Fi was limited and extra data required a charge. No elevators if you are on the 2nd floor. Was concerned about the limited parking in back especially since we were there on a Friday night with the bar and restaurant there. But the lady assured us that we could park at the family Penny Royal a block or two away if filled, or on the street after 6 but be sure to move before some time in the morning - just read the sign.
After one day we had seen the sights we wanted in Launceston and moved on to a lake lodge in Cradle Mountain. So we forfeited the 2nd night’s charge. We requested a reimbursement if they did book the room the 2nd night … but business is business.
So ended up with just an average vibe overall.

We stayed at the Leisure Inn for 3 nights, the beds were clean and comfortable, the room very spacious, and the bathroom quite large.

The room had everything we needed for our trip, the thick glass windows meant very little road noise despite a busy street. The location is quite central to Launceston and easy walking distance to everything.

The staff were friendly and curteous and we highly recommend staying here.

Checkin was easy, the counter staff very very friendly and helpful. The room was well appointed with a small kitchen to prepare snacks, the bed was comfortable and the room was spotless. The Hotel was in walking distance to the Gorge and lovely restaurants.

Dear Maree, Thank-you for staying with us and taking the time to review it, it pleases the team and I greatly that you enjoyed your stay so much and we are very appreciative of your 5/5 review. As the closest hotel to Cataract Gorge and with a selection of hotel rooms and apartments we are a very popular option. If you are travelling along the East Coast of Australia look out for our sister Leisure Inn and Park Regis brand hotels, who are sure to also offer you a memorable and comfortable stay. With regards

Expected better, we booked the queen room for 2 nights, the first room offered was facing a car parking area so we asked for a quieter room. The next offer was a room with 24 stairs to climb. No problem for us, we are fit pensioners, not realizing that after opening door to the room, there are 13 steps to climb and the landing is an actual room. OK, we can take that, but where is a settee? Only one chair to share between two of us? First, we laughed, reckoning that it's easy to solve, just ring reception for an additional chair. However, nothing was delivered. The nights were very trying as the entry door below the stairs has a glass panel which lets the hallway light in, so no dark room to sleep in, plus air condition was loud. Adjacent Penny Royal restaurant was delightful with superb meals, friendly and professional service, next time we visit Launceston we will come back, but would not recommend the hotel its self.

Attractions too expensive, restaurants too expensive. The location is good and rooms were comfortable however no dvds or netflix etc to watch a movie. We asked for some clean towels which took two phone calls an hour apart and almost 2 hours to arrive despite being told 15 minutes on both calls. Sorry would not recommend.

We experienced some of the aspects mentioned in other reviews: proximity to the main room, some furniture in need of updating etc. However, we paid only around $210 for a 2-bedroom room in an excellent location that included everything we could possibly need for a short stay. Plus, we really liked the theme-styled decor and it made for something totally different from anywhere else we stayed in Tasmania. Yes, the quality of the room was not 5-star, but we still rank it highly against some of the pricier accommodation we had during our holiday.

Dear Monica, Thank-you for staying with us, we do appreciate your support and pleased that you enjoyed your time with us. As a mid-market hotel we always strive to offer a comfortable and clean home-away-from-home, and I'm pleased you found our rooms, location and style value for money. We're working our way through updates and upgrades presently and into the new year, already we have installed new 50" TV's, new Tasmanian-made beds and many other touches, including LED lighting throughout the hotel. I can see you got a great mid-week rate on our two-bedroom apartments, and our rates do fluctuate with demand and seasonality and day of week, just like airline tickets. However as we enjoy prime location on the Tamar River, right next door to Cataract Gorge, we are always a popular option given we have a wide range of hotel rooms and apartment options to choose from. We do hope to welcome you back again. Warm regards

We cannot rate this accommodation and available facilities highly enough. From the time of booking when we found the Reception staff totally receptive to our enquiry, and accommodating in terms of both Room Rates and location. In the end the location was perfect, the room exceptionally clean and the on site Restaurant also great in terms of menu and cost. Really a perfect getaway for us for the long weekend. Very hard to identify where this accommodation could have improved in any area.

We really enjoyed our stay here. What made it better than most was the excellent beds and having a kitchenette. We could have cooked our own meals had we not been pressed for time, but we could cook toast in the morning and have cereal. Bowls, plates, mugs, glasses and cutlery were all supplied.
The bedding was like sleeping on a cloud and we had the best night's sleep. It's also very close to a lot of things including Cataract Gorge and of course, the Penny Royal attractions and restaurants.
The only downside was having to go between sites (200 metres) to get change for washing etc.

Had a wonderful stay with family. Located in a convenient place within town close to many services. Clean rooms with fresh towels everyday. Being an apartment I would recommend you place a small vacuum cleaner to help clean carpet daily if one have kids. Overall our stay was fantastic

My husband and I spent 4 days here in March. The room was large and bed comfy.
The shower could use some TLC as could the TV but was overall a good value for money stay within 10 mins walk to Catarac Gorge and Penny Royal.
