Located a short stroll from the main downtown of Launceston (which isn't very big to begin with), this hotel is in a convenient location and has ample parking onsite at no extra charge. The owner is very friendly and welcoming and offered some good advice re where to eat around town. We stayed in a Premier City View room, and...

Balmoral on York was very easy to find and access when we arrived in Launceston. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. Shower feels like it is in a cupboard which was unusual. Paid extra for a view which was a bit questionable. Continental breakfast was included, once again with great service.

We stayed here for 1 night in February and would not stay again, I found the Hotel to be old and in my opinion not clean: The lighting was terrible, there was old food left in the fridge and I was reluctant to put anything on the carpet as it needed a good clean. On arrival in the driveway it...

We stayed for 1 night before leaving Tasmania - what a great find! It is centrally located and is great value. It is very comfortable providing a good night's sleep, a continental breakfast and friendly, helpful service. Everything about this hotel is positive and due , no doubt, to Trevor, the owner/manager. Emma's service at the breakfast was also friendly...

Very spacious with little separate kitchenette. Great instant free WiFi and Fox TV included. Continental breakfast was included, but for an extra $10 ($5 each) we were offered...

Very good value for a large room, nicely decorated with good facilities. Service was friendly and helpful with breakfast being well done by the staff. Staff are more than willing to recommend places to eat outside the hotel despite the hotel offering its own food. Location is near the main street, so access to restaurants and shops is very easy.
