A very good hotel, magnificent building, excellent location and setting, friendly and helpful staff. Very good value. I would certainly use it for future trips to Launceston. Very comfortable room and bed.

Stayed many times with no problems. However this time there was no hot water so I had no choice to have a cold shower in a Tasmanian winter... Other than that can't fault the experience, I would still recommend to others. Just hoping they take feedback and fix the hot water issue

Everything you would expect from this chain. Nicely appointed room with large King bed. But for the price nothing special. We had a gift voucher for a couple of nights so really have nothing to complain about.

Had the eye fillet with a side of seasonal greens. Steak cooked perfectly, excellent service. Dessert creme brulee delicious. Delicious meal and excellent attentive service. Would go back when staying in Launceston.

Modern, well located premises. A positive experience marred by a fine by the third party car park owner for reverse parking. Parts of the carpark are lined by a glass wall hence the warning to not reverse park but no indication they would fine you despite having a car with rear parking camera and parking sensors.

I would have given a much higher score but the noise on level 3 with the air conditioner was unbearable. I was on one side of hotel and my colleague on the other and he experienced the same noise level. No sleep and not good enough.

Great service and great value for money: the Mantra is in prime location in Launceston. Not far from the airport and close to the city centre. Would definitely be coming back again. Thanks for the great service.
