Check in last night was fantastic. The lady on reception was a delight, very efficient but also thoughtful and helpful. (I saw other guests thanking her specially for helping them as they went out for dinner so not just us.) All staff lovely actually - having breakfast now and waitress is very sweet, service prompt. Gentleman on reception this morning was very friendly and helpful too. Such a refreshing change and a beautiful stay for our last night in Launceston. Thank you!

Frustrating experience

Pros: The restaurant
Cons: Room keys
Location: Ok
the room itself was nice as whew the staff. The room key however was a nightmare. In our 5 day stay we had around 7 keys with countless keys re-programmed. They just didn't work. Other guests had the same issue. At first the staff told me to swipe it quicker which didn't work then a different staff member told me to swipe it slower then I was told not to keep it in my phone case as the phone will de-magnetise it. Then the lock on the room was cleaned which didn't work either. Even if it did I would still have trouble getting in through the car park or entering the gym. They obviously have issues here that need addressing. Although they were very apologetic it was never resolved. Would never stay here again.
