terrible experience

I booked 2 nights' stay in this hotel with my husband. When I stepped in the hotel, I smelt a overly strong scent of paint. The smell was everywhere even the corridor and our room that made me very uncomfortable. In our room, the glass in the bathroom was not clean, Coz I could see much toothpaste inside. Also the coffee cups were not cleaned as well, coffee still staying on the cups. The mattress was of poor quality. When I lay in bed, I felt like lying directly on the spring. It was hard to turn the tap switch. Also, The free wifi should be provided those days, but they told us the internet didn't work. I didn't believe that 2 days were not enough for repairing a network.

it could be better

Room is too small for a family. Basically the family room is just two extra bed in an ordinary studio room with higher prices. We also lost our boiling pot and 4 baby feeding bottles total worth $100 in the kitchen because the staff didn't remind us about the public kitchen close time. Reception also closed so I called the emergency number and someone said they'll try to get here half hour earlier the next morning but no one tuned up until 7:50 am which their normal opening hour is 8:00 am. We have to leave to catch the plane.

Cheap good location

Ideal for an overnight stopover, wouldn't recommend for long stays. No airconditioner, normally this would not be an issue, but Launceston was hot the day we stayed. Not suitable for children, our room had windows that a child could easily fall from.

Walk into York Town Square, which is directly behind BFI, you have some excellent options for food. Try the Itslian Pizza House, the pizzas are to die for.

Batman Fawkner Inn

A very historic hotel: in this building the meeting (between John Batman and Fawkner, naturally) was held that resulted in the establishment of the city of Melbourne. The room we had was in the "new" (1970s) wing, when we would have preferred to be in the original building, but the room was still good value for money. The only hitch was that, through a glitch in staff organisation, the room was never serviced; we arrived home after the first full day to find the bed still unmade, the bathroom not replenished... they just didn't get around to it! The front desk people were so pleasant, however, that we decided not to draw their attention to this oversight, which, apparently (we saw a reminder notice to the maids in a service room), is not exactly a unique occurrence.

Just across the road at the next corner is a new lunch-only Indian restaurant called "Smart Curries". Launceston restaurants are NOT cheap, but this one -- a tiny affair where the wife cooks all the meals herself -- runs at about half the price of the other better-known Indian restaurants in town, and the food is delicious. Luch for two with a soft drink cost us $14, and we felt so satisfied that we needed only a snack at dinner time.

Overall awesome.

Free fast Wi-Fi. It was quiet during my last 2 days and I was given a room by myself while still paying for a 2-bed dorm.
