Very short walk to Launceston CBD. Plenty of quality dining options along Charles St. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean, warm and well appointed. If I had one complaint it's that none of the windows could be opened for fresh air but it may be possible in some of the rooms. It's only a small complaint though. Overall our stay was very enjoyable

The rooms are spacious, solidly built and very quiet. The room has a well appointed kitchenette. The staff are friendly and helpful and the hotel is an easy walk into the shopping district and to local eateries.

The hotel was clean, bed was comfortable and room had everything we needed. Unfortunately we were next to the lifts so a bit noisy but otherwise enjoyed our stay.
