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Decent room for just the one night, albeit a little dirty and outdated, although there's far worst places around.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...

Stayed here for 2 nights to kick off our Tassie adventure. Room was really spacious and comfortable. If you are staying when the nightclub is operating then get one of the king rooms at the front as we could barely hear the music (and not at all if you put the aircon onto fan). Easy walk to the centre of...
