This hotel is ideally situated in the centre of Launceston. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is very clean and the cooked breakfasts are yum. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that is wanting safe, affordable, clean and friendly accommodation in Launceston.

Convenient and friendly. Nice staff. Rooms are a good size, but alcove rooms are small if you are a taller person sleeping on a single bed.
