This no-frills motel isn't much to look at from the outside, but the large unit we had contained a kitchenette, large common area, two bedrooms each sleeping two, plus a hide-a-bed. The bathroom was clean. The balcony was a nice to have an afforded some pretty views. The laundry facilities were in good shape and the in-room Wi-Fi was decent....

Myself, husband and two kids travelled around Tas for 10 days. Our second stop along the way was Launceston. We had booked in for two nights at Tamar River villas but only managed to stay the one night. When arriving we realised these are not villas, it's actually an old motel right on a busy highway. The "villa" itself had...

This motel is situated between the two carriageways of the main A7 West Tamar Highway, not far from the centre of town. It has a scary access off the fast lane of the main road going into town but fortunately there was not a lot of traffic. Because of the proximity of the road there was some traffic noise but...

The room had everything required but dated. The fridge was noisy but that said we both slept well although my sheets looked not clean with a long black hair in the bed. They charged me when they left my key under the mat and they charged me again when I left. When I rang them to notify of this double...

This family motel is located along a major highway so relatively speaking it is quite noisy. But thankfully the traffic in Launceston is never as heavy as major cities like Melboune so it was not as bad as i expected when i first arrived. The place offer clean beds. Wifi is bad though, we had to move all around the...

This was a very clean and spacious place to stay to end our holiday. We stayed 4 nights and it was reasonably priced. The kids appreciated the free wifi. It would have been nice to have an outside area to spend the evenings in. The back of the villas had an area but it was rundown and not very appealing....

We only booked here for 1 night to make an early morning flight at the airport. The room was very spacious and clean. The kitchen was well equipped, enough that you could self cater easily. The bathroom is rather small and the shower orientated oddly over the narrow bath which meant the cold shower curtain would cling to your back...

Stayed in a two-bedroom apartment on the lower level and I'm beyond surprised at how clean and spacious the apartment was! We were lucky enough to get a room that faced the road which means we could see a bit of the Tamar River. It was an excellent view from the living room everyday in Launceston. Do try Lam's Grill...

Spent 3 nights here as a family of 4. Clean and neat with a spacious living area. Compact kitchen with most essential items for doing your own meals. Great walking tracks and playground a short walk away by the river. Easy to get to everything Launceston has to offer!
