This is a great hotel. Comfortable rooms with amazing beds. Good facilities, NBN, Netflix and great food. The real difference is the attentive and helpful staff. Parking is easy and the location is central to Launceston.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Balmoral. Great position close to shops and close to York park where we went to the football. Hosts and all staff efficient and friendly. Our room was very clean and quite roomy with a lovely view over the city to the hills in the background. We had a very good meal in the...

A AFL weekend away, Hawthorn. An easy walk to Aurora Stadium, bars, restaurants. Room was clean and quiet. Didn't eat there though. Friendly staff, would recommend. Handy from airport with shuttle bus.

Stayed here during our overnight visit in Launceston. The room was recently refurbished and had the basics. Bed was on the smaller side but we liked the shower head. It was so powerful and for once the water didn't leak everywhere! Much better than the shower room @ Freycinet Lodge. Centrally located and walking distance to the main strip and...

We have been staying at this Motel since 2008 and our experience is always the same. We are always greeted by name, nothing is too much trouble for the owners and the staff and the rooms are always spotless. I love that there is a microwave in the room (I suffer badly from OA so heating up my heatpacks is...

If price is your priority then you cannot beat the Balmoral for value. The staff and owner take pride in the cleanliness of the Hotel. Overall the staff are helpful and friendly but a bit amateurish in the dining room. Breakfast is fine, from days gone by but nonetheless, the favourites are all there, make your own tea, coffee and...

Excellent service. Warm welcome. Desk with a lamp for buisness travellers. Meals offered are high quality with a good range. Very comfortable beds. (Real doonas in covers not just a doona b/w a couple of sheets). I always know i will be well looked after here. Thx to the great team @ balmoral.

I quite honestly cannot argue with the majority of reviews on tripadvisor. Rooms are what you would expect for $138..staff could not be more helpful and pleasant, continental breakfast good and prices at the bar and mini bar in room were not inflated. However having to pay $185 because of it being a weekend, $10 of that for having a...
