Is there rooms suitable for a wheelchair?
Dear Diane_Slaven8, Thank you for taking the time to ask this question. Unfortunately all of our rooms are only accessible by a flight of stairs. Please contact the hotel directly and we may provide you with suggestions for accessible accommodation.

Hi, The airport shuttle is run from a seperate company. You can book online at airporterlaunceston. com.au When booking they will ask for your Flight details and arrange for payment via credit card. The Pickup location for our hotel is "Hotel Grand Chancellor" Or if you are heading in to the hotel then they pick you up from the Airport. Hope this is of some assistance to you. Regards, Chris Batman Fawkner Inn.
