    Family rooms cheap and large enough for 4 adults to get a bed each. Amenities basic but good enough for an overnight stay

    There is no lift and the room was quite small. Parking is limited. The dining area could do with some more cutlery and crockery.

    No room service, the room was too small with average bed, tiny tv and running shower dripping water the whole night. It was a hot day and the air con was not enough in the room to keep it cool.

    Customer service team not welcoming.

    Overall, it was an average experience. Parking spots are limited & it’s impossible to use them due to the narrow space. Customer service team were disappointing (no smile or eye contact). Not welcoming, in fact got angry when we couldn’t find the switchboard in the kitchen. Housekeeping was excellent.

    Tidy little hotel within walking distance of amenities. The only downside is the regular chiming from the clock tower of the nearby Launceston Post Office.

    Beds comfortable. Dead spider sitting on pillow. Bathroom horrible - stained, cracked vanity unit, old bath with shower over it, taps difficult to turn - ugh! Noisy late night arrivals.

    Felt like I was in a dungeon. Could not open the window, would have been comfier to sleep on the floor than the bed and pillows! So uncomfortable. Shower dripped all night. Shower was hard to get warm, was either HOT or COLD. Will never stay again.

    Great location, lovely building, clean and comfortable beds. Hosts were super accommodating of an early check in, which was much appreciated. However the room we were first in was very run down and not at all like the photos. Bathroom was clean but super shabby, no light in the shower, shower curtain replacing what should have been a screen. Had an issue with the air conditioner night 2, and was quickly moved rooms - again very appreciated. Second room was much nicer. Be aware - WotIf says (twice) that there is daily housekeeping but there isn't, as we found on return to the room in the evening. The info sheet in the room advises it must be requested at reception in advance. Also, totally not the hotels fault, but across the road is a church with a bell tower that chimes every 15 minutes, 24/7.

    The location was excellent, however the rooms were small. We stayed in a queen deluxe,but it was cramped even for two. The ensuite was really dated and could do with an upgrade. There were tea and coffee at start of the stay but we were told to ask reception staff for extra. This could have bee topped up daily. We stayed a week. There hotel is great but there could be a lot of improvement. A lounge and dining room area would have be nice, or an area to unwind instead of having to stay in your room.
