This is the place to stay while working in Launceston. Clean rooms, great King beds and a Bistro to die for ! I return here every month and will do so into the future. Great location to shops and services, golf course and only 4minutes from the centre of Launceston. The staff are always friendly.

Unless necessary I will not return to this motel. The rooms were very dated. I feel there are other options close-by offering better value for money. The two bedroom apartment was furthest from the public roads and restaurant however still very noisy at times, especially for a weeknight (not weekend). This aside, I must say the customer service and food...

Where to start. My car way to far away for my liking. Rooms had stains all over the carpet. Bed was not the best to sleep in. Room had a funny smell. And had to put a 50 dollars room deposit down because I didn't have a credit card.

Accommodation was good value and was centrally located to everything we needed in Launceston. It was also very well located to shops, and even a very friendly hairdresser across the road which I needed at the time. Very clean and very well serviced. Highly recommend.

Accommodation was excellent value and being close to the restaurant was even better Highly recommend. The location was a few kilometres outside of Launceston but the convenience of getting around was great

We were impressed with the comfortable room,everything clean& well serviced. The tea/coffee supplies were exceptional. Staff very friendly & helpful. Bed very comfortable. Great that we could just walk across the car park to the hotel for a meal, drink etc. We arrived the first morning off the boat at Devonport, toured the Tamar Valley, before booking in at 2pm,...
