4/10 Fair

Big clean rooms and welcoming reception lady. However there were some issues during our stay. First, staying in the unit on the ground level makes it impossible to open the windows as all of them are facing the walking path and the road and there is no air con in the units. Second, on the first day the hot water was running out in the middle of the shower. When reported, the manager said that the single hot water tank is shared between the two units. Which means that if another unit had a good shower, no hot water is left for another unit and the solution is to wait 3-4 hours until the water is hot again! Want to see this manager in a middle of the shower, soapy with no hot water on the cold evening... Definitely not the 4 star property. Won't stay there again.

Comfortable hotel in quieter part of Launceston
Our room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was great, with plenty of space for 2 people's bits and pieces. We didn't have a car, but it was walkable distance to City Park and a bit further to the city centre for shops and dining options. The surrounding area was quiet. Check-in was easy enough with the instructions sent to us.
