Overall very good and convenient to CBD and cataract gorge. Reception on checking in very officious and unhelpful contrasted by checkout reception was delightful. Bathroom has no shelves or cupboard on which to place toiletries which was a bit inconvenient.

This is a fantastic place to stay in Launceston, even if you are not interested in the theme park. We stayed for two nights in room 353. The view over Penny Royal from our room was amazing. We had the Brig Tamar just below us and could see the cliff walkers and waterfall etc easily. The room was outstandingly clean, modern and well-equipped. By day, we could hear the cannon fire every hour and the waterfall, which was exciting, but by evening it was peaceful and calm. We ate lunch at the nearby Kings Bridge bar and restaurant, which was very good and at the Penny Royal restaurant for both dinner and breakfast which was outstanding in value, quality and service. The park itself is good fun but the a food and accommodation are what well make us come back again.
