Great value for money hotel with basic breakfast and Netflix included in the room rate. The hotel is a bit dated; however, the room was spacious, warm and clean with a very comfy bed. Centrally located with friendly staff. We would stay here again.

The accommodation at the Balmoral on York has had a facelift and the facilities are very good. The rooms aren't luxurious but they are large, clean and well appointed. Our deal, booked via TripAdvisor, included a full cooked breakfast which was excellent. So the accommodation represent great value. But best of all was the great service provided by the Balmoral...

At first we were disappointed in Balmoral because it does seem a little old and run down, but the issues are purely cosmetic. The rooms are nicely furnished, the beds are comfortable, and the shower is excellent. We were worried as our room was right across from the lift but we never heard it, it's the world's quietest lift. Our...

This is a great hotel. Comfortable rooms with amazing beds. Good facilities, NBN, Netflix and great food. The real difference is the attentive and helpful staff. Parking is easy and the location is central to Launceston.

Our room was very clean and quite roomy with a lovely view over the city to the hills in the background. We had a very good meal in the...

Stayed here during our overnight visit in Launceston. The room was recently refurbished and had the basics. Bed was on the smaller side but we liked the shower head. It was so powerful and for once the water didn't leak everywhere! Much better than the shower room @ Freycinet Lodge. Centrally located and walking distance to the main strip and...
