Leisure Inn Penny Royal Hotel & Apartments Launceston

The appartments are very well located, next to the Gorge Walk, and you can get a good deal with the current 20% discount on Rates to Go. If you have a choice the first floor appartments are much nicer, with a small balcony, bigger windows and might be a touch larger. The ground floor appartment was OK.

We liked this first floor appartment with it's balcony at the rear. The hotel is right next to the Gorge Walk which is excellent. Will go back again.

The hotel is well located, near the Cataract Gorge and not far from the city centre. There are many good restaurants nearby. Our room is clean and spacious. At first the younger hotel receptionist gave us good impression with sweet smile and helpful information. However, there's an older woman, aged 50+, was very cool and rude. She spoiled our good impression of the staff service. Without her, our stay at Leisure Inn Penny Royal Apartments is a pleasant one.

We stayed at the Leisure Inn Penny Royal Apartments and enjoyed our stay thoroughly. It was clean, had a lot of character and we were thankful we were on the ground floor. Not sure if the people on the top floor had lifts or only stairs to lug up their luggage. We would stay there again.

Room was totally renovated, clean and modern but very claustrophobic with no windows (except bathroom and wardrobe area) and the big dark beam over the bed. The idea is charming. Be prepared to carry your luggage up two full flights of stairs. Staff were polite but could be more knowledgeable on the area. Great location. Handy to the gorge, city and wharf area.

Interesting room and building design, great value, excellent meal in restaurant, easy on site parking, and good location at Cataract Gorge edge of the city. I'm always happy to stay here when the price is right.

We stayed twice at the Penny Royal during a 3-week tour through Tasmania. This is one of the best locations in Tasmania, great ambience, a short walk to the entrance to Cataract Gorge, and close to the wharves and CBD. One drawback is the steps to the upstairs apartments, but that is insignificant if you are staying more than one night. It is a shame that the Penny Royal attractions are no longer operating - a sign of the tough times I guess, certainly not restricted to here.

Best 3 star accommodation in Launceston for the price; clean rooms, comfortable beds, basic amenities. Only a couple of blocks walk to CBD. Restaurant on site (not visited). Friendly, helpful staff.

Handy for the river and cataract gorge. Busy road but not a problem. Breakfast (separate business) was good. Room pleasant enough though annoying to keep banging our heads on a low, pretend oil-lamp (with a compact fluorescent globe).

This hotel is a rustic place well situated near the fabulous Ctaract Gorge and easy walking distance to City Centre. The staff were friendly and efficient.The room was spacious and well set up. I would definitely stay there again.

Lovely hotel with lots of character and old world appearance from the outside but modern and well-appointed inside. Very comfortable beds and warm and cosy room! The hotel was a short walk from Cataract Gorge and Stillwater Restaurant and while about a 15 minute walk to the City centre it was a relatively easy walk. Highly recommend the Leisure Inn Penny Royal Hotel & Apartments and we will definitely stay here again (soon I hope!). Highly recommend Stillwater Restaurant too.

Staff were extremely helpful when we arrived to find that the Hotel Club booking had not been forwarded to them - they upgraded us to a two bedroom apartment. They also provided good advice on places to eat and things to do on our short visit. The Cataract Gorge is a must do and is very close to the Leisure Inn; the town is also within easy walking distance. We have booked to stay there again on our last night before leaving Tasmania and are happy to recommend this hotel to other travelers.
