We stayed in a great double room - it was complete with a small fridge, teas and coffees, TV with good reception, and nice, albeit very small, ensuite. Beds were warm and comfy and everything was clean. Wifi reception in the room was okay, bit patchy. Well-located to just about everything in Launceston. Staff were very friendly and welcoming.

The Hotel is well located in central Launceston. The rooms were clean and comfortable and was good value for family with older kids. A little noisy in alley way beside the Hotel, but overall was good value.

Very convenient location. Room was great. Staff helpful. There was a function at the club which was right out our window but we didn't hear anything. Wish we could have spent more time there and in Launceston.

Decent room for just the one night, albeit a little dirty and outdated, although there's far worst places around. Centrally located, but is still expensive for what you get. Brain dead lady on reception, was as if she had never been asked for directions to (or for that matter even heard of) the Gorge before!

We stayed 2 nights here, and the 2nd night coincided with live music on Wed. Staff was careful to provide that information when we checked in, which we knew beforehand because we asked for some details when we booked. Unfortunately the rooms are all the 2nd floor of the Inn so it would be hard to get one without the...
