Big Mistake

Am sorry to say this,we had a bad experience overall. Initially we where attracted by low price accommodation but it proved to be a big mistake. 1) Hard to access:-from the carpark you got at least 10( could be more) steps to get to the first floor and from there we had to climb another 15 narrow steps to get in to the room. 2) Newly painted:- Our room and corridor was recently painted and felt very suffocated ( not adequate ventilation) 3) No need of alarm:- There was a construction work going on just behind our room, They start their machine at 8am sharp. 4) Low price but "Go green":- we didn't know that "go green " means we didn't get any room service, cleaning during our entire stay. We stayed for four days. 5) No aircondition, provided with a fan on warm summer day. With dust and construction works outside. We spend around 13 days in Tasmania and so sorry to say that this was the worst experience we had. We didn't mean to hurt anyone but as a customer we felt really bad.

Lovely Launceston

We had stayed here before without any issues, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We returned recently and found it to be much noisier than our previous stay, due mainly to other noisy house guests. It was also rather stuffy in the room, as there is no air-con and it was quite hot over the weekend we visited. Having said that, it wouldn't stop us from staying there again in the cooler months.

Traditional outside, modern in

Lovely spacious room with comfortable bed. Super-easy to check in and get settled. Parking is a bit tight, but manageable. Great location, close to the Gorge and park. If you have a suite on one of the upper levels, be prepared to get up the stairs; not sure if there is a lift available (didn't see one). The doors are also quite tricky to open - you definitely need both your hands free to manage those olde-timey latches! Have stayed here before this visit and would again.

A Lovely Stay

Check-in was quick and easy. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Car parking on site made it very easy, with no problems finding a space. I had dinner at Red Ted's Tavern which is onsite and the meal was beautiful. Best chicken I've had in a long time. The bed was comfortable and the room was minimalist, but had plenty of room for me to spread out my work. Good value for money both at the hotel and the tavern. Close to Cataract Gorge walk and just a few minutes drive into the city centre. If the room had free Wi-Fi and a bath, I would have given it 5 stars. Overall, a pleasant experience and I would be happy to stay there again.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

When packing your bag, roll your clothes to fit more into your suitcase. It's amazing what you can fit in a small carry on.

Conveniently located character motel

The motel is built around an historic 1840 watermill and is built of local stones and rough beams in keeping with the period. The rooms are largish and well furnished. The motel is located near the art gallery and parkland abutting the Tamar river. There is also a character pub built into the motel which is very convenient for drinks and meals. The CBD is an easy 5 - 10 minute walk away. We loved the location as we were able to walk in the park across the road and along the boardwalk each morning. Car parking in Launceston is generally metered which took us by surprise so parking for free at the motel was another saving.
