We were barely in the accommodation as we only stayed one night but wasn't too bad. Service could have been a tad more welcoming on arrival, bathroom quite small...

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.

Tassie holiday

Came back to Penny Inn for our last night in Launceston before heading home the next day. Stayed in a different room and love the room names. Will stay here again. Great customer service from staff. Thank you to Donna for assisting us with our queries. :)

Great hotel staff! Very nice and helpful with directions and suggestions. Short walk into CBD and across the road is a fantastic restaurant, Still Water. Will return on our next stay. :)

Penny Royal Launceston

We only stayed the one night, in room 253...but would loved to have stayed for longer! It was very good, and so much better than I thought it'd be, given we only paid $85 for the night. We could see the water from our room which was a real bonus, and the walk into town was only three or so blocks away - a very easy 10 minute stroll. The room was very themed for a "Ye Olde" experience, and I really appreciated the effort that had been put into the place. Yes, there were a lot stairs to the top floor (no elevator), but that wasn't an issue in the slightest for us. We also tried Cataract on Patterson which was almost right next door, and the meal we had there was exceptional. All around, this place is a hidden gem, and I'm already looking forward to my next stay there.

Cataract on Patterson is exceptional! It was almost fully booked on the Monday night that we went (a very good sign!), and they apparently are booked out a week in advance over weekends, so be sure to book ahead. Just great!
