Great stay in Launceston

Was lovely to spend our last night in this hotel in Tassie, was comfortable bed and was really happy with the small balcony from our room. Staff really helpful and friendly, only thing I can say was in regards to car parking, was booked out at this time of year and getting around the car park was a bit hairy. All in all a great place to stay. Will stay again if we happen to be there in Launceston.

Nice medieval-look hotel

The staff was very friendly, fast check in and check out. When checking in, besides the hotel map, we were also given a list of places to eat around Launceston, which was very useful. The overall hotel is very nice with its old time but not rundown look. I was able to take some beautiful photos of the place. There is no lift so some people may find it difficult to walk with walking and carrying The room was allright, as expected from a 3 star hotel. All basic amenities were provided. One minus point was my bathroom mat was quite wet, seemed like housekeeper didn't change it from the previous guests. The tavern downstairs were quite noisy at night.

Old outside new inside

Very happy with this hotel. It's right in the centre of the city so quite easy to get around and close to some very nice restaurants. The outside looks quite old and the corridors were a bit like an 80s motel but the room is fantastic. Nice bed, lovely modern bathroom.

Star of Siam is a fantastic Thai restaurant which is not so far away. The hotel has an adjacent restaurant- Three steps on George- which we haven't tried but the menu looked quite good and price looked reasonable.

Enjoyable stay

We stayed at the Colonial for 2 nights and it was a good experience. The Colonial is within easy walking distance of the main shopping centre and restaurants in central Launceston. The room was spacious and clean - the wifi was free (that's a bonus in Tasmania) - and the staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. The only thing we didn't enjoy was a meal at the restaurant attached to the hotel.

I would not recommend eat at the 3 Steps on George Restaurant attached to the hotel. Staff were very young, very inexperienced and very slow. The meals were okay but nothing to rave about.

Fabulous and helpful

Could not ask for a better reception. The accommodation was perfect for our needs as we required a hospital stay close by. Spacious, warm room with the comforts necessary for our stay. Location, location, location - big tick. Close proximity to the centre of Launceston gave us easy access to retail, dining and entertainment. Thank you & well done Colonial Launceston.

Excellent service and friendliness

Rooms were excellent, dinner at the restaurant was good and very convenient as we were only staying one night and had been travelling all day so didn't want to wander the town. Service was very good and it was easy to find a car park. Location was perfect for a walk to the Gorge. Would recommend this hotel.

Just next door. Three Steps on George Street. Lovely colonial restaurant with interesting photographs of the Launceston Church Grammar School - was once the gymnasium.

Good Launceston Base

Had a good room. Check in and out was efficient. Walk to town centre was short. Ants in Room 101 was a bit annoying. Free movies were great to pass the time.
