Location was great! Walkable distance to CBD Launceston. Many restaurants within a 15mins walk distance. Room was clean and tidy! Got upgraded to a nicer room with a view for free :) Thank you! We had accidentally left a bag of our clothes after we checked out and we spoke to the receptionist at the hotel. She was really pleasant and found our bag of clothes the next day! She contacted us to organise pick up. So helpful and friendly! Would definately recommend staying here!
