    Very clean inside and out- very well priced, loved it.

    Heating was a slight issue.

    It had free internet. While it was pretty sub-standard in almost every other respect (lack of heating, breakfast and room servicing; dozy desk staff, poor tv reception, etc.) the fact that broadband access was free was a huge boon. I almost shifted to the much swankier Grand Chancellor next door, but discovered that if I had, broadband for the duration of my 5-night stay would have cost nearly $100 - so putting up with a small degree of inconvenience and inefficiency was worth it, for me.

    It's a budget hotel and back-packer hostel: you can't expect much for $80 a night. I was annoyed that the tv didn' work and that it took 24 hours to fix teh fault, and was surprised that the staff didn't make the beds, replace the towels and vacuum at all - but you get what you pay for. The worst thing in the end was teh lack of heating (I stayed in July). I had a small and totally inadequate portable heater for three days. I asked for and was given a second (efficient) heater on day 4 and thereafter was ok. But the place is run in a friendly but slapdash way that is certainly inefficient. If I hadn't paid in advance (and was overcharged $185 - a mistake the management noticed and rectified before I even noticed) I probably would have left early. But in the end it was acceptable if irritating.

    Good location, easy walking distance to shops, cafes etc.

    Very noisy hotel guests meant that we slept very poorly. Guests returning late were yelling and jumping down the halls. We couldn't get any hot water in our ensuite shower (both night and morning) so had to make do with a lukewarm one.

    Good basic hotel, ideal location and an excellent price - was basic, but that is what you get for $80 a night.

    Superb

    Loved our stay in this historic building and wished we could have stayed longer but were flying out the next day. The young managers are terrific, very friendly and well organised. We stayed in a family room with our daughter and were amazed at how quiet it was considering the number of people staying. We enjoyed being able to use the communal kitchen as it meant we could chat to people we would not otherwise have met. It was great to be able to relax in the lounge with the log fire blazing and chat to people playing chess etc. I have already recommended this hotel to a lady at the airport. We will stay again if ever in Launceston as great restaurants and the city are just outside the door. 5 stars from us! Thanks Andrea and Stephan.

    Good

    The locality was excellent. Within easy walking distance to eateries, shops and footy ground.

    The rooms are a bit small and in desperate need of refurbishment. Need globes in all lights.
