Amazing traditional-style buildings with solid timber doors, stone lintels and exposed beams, like traditional pubs and inns in England - so a very unique experience for Australia.

Apartment was showing its age - Furniture needs replacing and bathroom needs total upgrade. Definitely not worth the money paid. We have stayed at much cheaper and nicer places in Launceston previously.

Thank-you for sharing your feedback Chris, The property is in line for enhancements to it in 2021 to some areas which you've identified. These were sadly delayed owing to what happened during 2020. We value you staying with us and sharing your thoughts.

We stayed here for the adventure park but we were only told it was shut after check in. The rooms are very dated, tattered and pretty grubby.

Thank-you for your feedback Berni, we are sorry that it didn't meet your expectations, we will investigate the room you had to see if more could be done to improve it. Separately, please note the adventure park is a third party business to us with different management, they do offer their hours of operation on their website.

The apartment was split over 3 levels, the living/kitchen was small and unappealing. Walls between bedrooms were very thin.5(343 was a lot of traffic noise
