Friendly staff at the front desk, great location that's close to most things in the city at a very reasonable price. Rooms were clean, nice and quiet, really can't fault it. Solid accommodation at sharp pricing.

Good central Launceston location. Comfortable and clean, and quite a reasonable price, even though we booked only hours ahead. As a bonus to the good price a full breakfast was included. Eating in, in the less expensive Tram Bar restaurant, was a satisfying option for dining during our one night stay.

Considering the "Best Western" brand (didn't know they had a "plus") I found all aspects of this property to be of an international 3.5 to 4 Star standard. It looked and felt to me more like a Mercure or Rydges and this was confirmed when I found out it had been a Mercure only months earlier. The service was outstanding,...

Very well located right in town with shops and restaurants immediately near. Buffet breakfast was included and was good. Nice king bed and king single in room unfortunately no bag racks to put bags on so ours were all on the floor. Nice bar with team to sit in (great feature) ideal for quiet drink. We will be back.
