The property was nice and in excellent location. Staff were extremely nice, but the property is looking very tired. Very noisy when other guests are moving around.

The view and position are great - the hosts rather neutral, speaking very little English, they seem not interested at all with the guests and their needs... The room, beds and bathroom are OK and clean. The breakfast - called "continental" (?!) - very poor. It has nothing in common with THE CONTINENT! You would need to drink a bucket of coffee to find in it some coffee taste! A minimal variety of food for a traveler - only carbohydrates!... Very sad...

Have stayed a number of times and been happy. However this time in a room close to front door and continually disturbed through the night with the automatic light at entrance coming on and with people coming through front door. Also noise from room upstairs through the floor boards.

WIFI, Noise

Pros: comfy bed and warm room
Cons: Building could do with an upgrade, breakfast was ordinary.
Location: Good location for Launcetson
I ended up staying two nights. On the first night I had problems with WIFI connection which were resolved by me having to use the reception for WIFI and move between the modem and my room for online work. This was extremely difficult and fruistrating as I was in Launceston for work and had a considerable amount to do. THe noise of traffic in the front room was a pain thankfully there were ear plugs which helped a bit. The breakfast was very ordinary - packaged jams, butter . . . The bed was comfy and the room warm
