“Fairly poor accomodation”
Reviewed 14 March 2012

This is really not a very nice place to stay. It's not expensive in dollar terms, but considering what it's like, it's not good value. The other review comments are pretty accurate. It may be in a good spot opposite the park, but traffic noise in the morning is very bad if you have a room facing the street. As for cleanliness, it's so old you can't really tell if it's clean, and it naturally becomes difficult to clean a room & fittings over a long time.

Room Tip: Don't get a room facing the street, it's noisy.

Staff were very helpful; rooms a little dated (70's decor) but were clean & comfortable and everything worked - our room overlooked City Park.
Position was excellent, CBD & restaurants easy walking distance along Brisbane St.

An ideal location but a disappointing hotel. Staff were very pleasant but the whole hotel smelt of dampness and was very noisy. Seems to be no sound proofing between rooms or floors. Could hear every time the people in the adjacent room turned a tap on - sounded just like a fog horn going off. Would not stay at this hotel again.

The corridor smelt of mould, and was also dimly lit. No sound insulation between any of the rooms. Bathroom old and rundown, no extraction fan.

Back for the second time and yes, nothing has changed. The staff are still friendly! The rooms are still the same and the cost is still very reasonable. The cafe still has good value meals and with friendly staff. A negative is, after booking a table in the restaurant when we went down the cafe wasn't open and we had to sit in the bar area. Even though it has the same great staff and menu, we were disappointed that we were in the bar and not in the cafe. After finishing our meal and speaking to the waitress, we were told that if we had asked we could have sat in the cafe. A little too late by then!
If you want to watch Austar and pay movies they are not available. They have changed to all HD channels. This didn't bother us, as we are not great TV watchers. But my husband lost count on the available TV channels. A bonus is that they are all free.

After researching on Tripadvisor for a couple of hotels in Launceston, I decided on Sandors'. Thank goodness, I was not disappointed.

Notwithstanding the fact that Sandors' is a slightly older and dated hotel, everything was in good working condition. The decor may be stuck in the 80s, but the room is spick and span. My partner and I were quite happy with it. We had a room facing the park and it was a pleasant view in the morning. The rooms at the back (and in the other building) faces the car park. The hotel was also within walking distance to the main strip where we could do our shopping or find food.

Simply a top value motel in a good location.

All a little dated but extremely comfortable. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful.

Stayed on both the first and last nights of our Tassy trip.
