Service was severely reduced because of covid-induced lack of staff. Our room was serviced only once in a week instead of daily. OK, but should have been compensated by a reduction in price. Relief reception staff lady was excellent; cheerful, helpful and willing.

I have stayed here in the past with a good experiance and it's a clean, well-run place. Sadly though this next time I stayed in room 2, that's right at the front on the road and on the bottom story. It became pretty restless night with people above me who were up all night, listening to their conversations and walking/ running/ jumping back and forth till the early hours of the morning. If you are staying here I would request a room at the back, and upstairs, so you get a better night's rest than I did.

Hi Peter sorry this happened. This is something beyond our control. While you were staying with us if we had of known about your inconvenience. We could have moved you to another room or upgraded you. On your next stay remind us about this. From the heart of Launceston John, Anthea & the Elphin Team
