Smelled like smoke, and mould in the bathrooms. People were urinating outside the front when we arrived back from our dinner. We were not that impressed

Hi Charlie, Please accept my sincerest for the issues with your stay. That is not acceptable under any circumstances and I'm very disappointed that you had a bad experience with us. We have a strict no-smoking policy but some guests do smoke and unless we know exactly who they are, there isn't much we can do :( The mould in the bathroom I will address with my housekeeping staff. Thank you for your feedback, it is much appreciated. Warmest Regards

Our only complaint was the bathrooms were quite small. The staff were excellent and very helpful. It is very well located in Launceston with easy walking to shops and restaurants.

For a low cost hotel this is a very pleasant place to stay. Great location, quiet, lovely old building, friendly and welcoming reception staff, clean and comfortable room. Excellent option if you just need somewhere to sleep. I will return.

We appreciate all feedback, but it would have been great if you had told us which room you were staying in so that we could address any issues with the bed. An anonymous review doesn't always allow us to fix the issue you had. Please feel free to contact us and advise. Thanks!

older property, but had everything we required for a nights stay. The only negative was the city clock chiming every hour during the night, but thats not the fault of the hotel. Staff were very cheerful and helpful.
