Enjoyed a couple of nights here. The center of downtown location was convenient and we walked to several areas and features of the city. Attractive hotel interior and exterior, good restaurant and lounge, and our rooms were good sized, well appointed and quiet.

Our room was a good size. Bed was a king and very comfortable. There was absolutely no outside noise at all. Very quite. Reception was friendly and willing to have a chat. Only problem was parking, we arrived at 4pm to find no spaced left to park our car.

Excellent location for what we needed, plenty of eating places around within walking distance, hotel clean and tidy with a couple of restaurants within the hotel selling good reasonably priced food, all the staff very friendly including the bar staff.

I thought the room was small and tired. It needs to be refurbished. The corridors and the common area of the hotel was also tired and in need of a refurb or makeover. The bar area was a daggy old bar from the 80's.

Myself and a few other members of a choir from Melbourne came to Launceston to sing with a local choir and raise $$ for City Mission. Some of us decided on the Best Western for its central location. We weren't disappointed! It was a short walk to almost anywhere!

A true gem of a place to stay close to everything in Launceston, walk to the main shopping precinct and restaurants. The wonderful staff from check in throughout our two night stay made our first two days on holiday so wonderful- already booked in for our return journey in 10 days, you must stay here!

Second time I have stayed here, this time as part of a coach tour. Room spacious and clean with everything you need. Breakfast was plentiful and all fresh. Happy hour in the bar upstairs is well worth a look and the meals there are well priced and portions very generous if you don't want to go into the city to...

We stayed here during the National Band Championships. The hotel is very basic but the staff are friendly and you will not get a more central location than this. The breakfast is about $18 per person which is reasonable. I found a nice added bonus was the free Wifi and the laundry that you can use between about 8am and...
