My wife and I stayed for two nights in March during a tour around Tasmania. This was by far the best accommodation we encountered during a month of travels. I could not find fault with the room, price or customer service. We ate at the hotel restaurant on consecutive nights as the food was first class. I would recommend this...

I regularly travel to Launceston for work and always stay at The Charles. Comfortable, easy parking, welcoming staff, lovely dinners at Esca. Close to city centre and opposite the hospital, so convenient. And if you look carefully you can almost see its hospital history in its bones.

centrally located inclding parking. We enjoyed dinner at the hotel and eating out at the local pub on Sunday as the restaurant in the hotel was not open on Sunday evening which was a bit of a surprise to us.

Close to the City, Park and Gorge. Staff were friendly and helpful. The Salmon was the best I have eaten. Would recommend to others who want to stay at Launceston. Close to the Church as well. The Hotel was 15 minutes away from the Launceston Airport.

Nice hotel with good amenities. Location was great - easy walk into the city centre and plenty of cafes and restaurants close by to eat. Room had a hot plate which was great as meant there was an option to cook a simple meal rather than eat out if so desired.

Hotel is located an easy distance from the airport and a short stroll to the city. Hotel is always clean and tidy. Staff are efficient and friendly. Only downfall was the beds which were uncomfortable.

My husband took ill & was hospitalised in Launceston while on holidays (long story) I was left stranded. Finding the Mantra Charles Hotel was a god sent. I can not praise or thank the staff enough, they helped me with questions & directions. They made a stressful time much easier. My accommodation was great Carol Pelgrave
