Nothing wrong with it per say except that it's ugly & lacks charm.food in the restaurant is mediocre. I don't know how this compares to the rest of the offerings in the city but i wasn't impressed. Free parking is a plus. Comfortable beds. Could hear the lift squeaking in the morning.

We stayed at Balmoral on York on a Tassie Getaway this August. Room was fantastic, free wifi and Netflix. Continental Breakfast was great, staff are very friendly and courteous. You're also only a short walk from quite a few fantastic local cafes and restaurants, and it's not far to the the amazing Cataract Gorge and all that Launceston has to...

I have stayed here quite a few times now and have never been disappointed. Clean, quiet and very comfortable. Great meals and never seen before service levels (and I Travel a lot) very friendly and nothing is to much trouble. The super fast NBN is a bonus as is the netflix. It's simple, just stay here!

Balmoral on York was a bit of a find. I have stayed in Launceston a lot for work, and always used a couple of hotels selected mainly because my work had established accounts with them. I'll be recommending they open an account here. Balmoral on York was simply the best hotel I have stayed in in central Launceston. Everything is...

The Balmoral is centrally located, clean, good value and the owners are great, can't do enough for you. We went off other reviews on trip advisor and glad we did. Breakast is included continental but for an extra 7 dollars you can add a hot breaky as well.

Stayed 2 nights on a trip around Tasmania - just a great place, friendly, good value, very comfortable. We will definitely be back next time we are in Launceston! The rooms are great value and breakfast was just what we were after.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel over a weekend. I chose it from previous tripadvisor reviews for it's high ratings. I have to admit that I am fairly fussy and as my profile name suggests... I like 'pretty'. This hotel is dated BUT rather than giving it a facelift they have dressed it and applied it's make-up beautifully....

I was going in with a closed mine to this Hotel. My Partner decided to book it, and when I looked at it on google and TripAdvisor I was already beginning to hate out trip to Launceston.

We stayed here Australia Day weekend. We had the best view of the fireworks in town as our room faced the city. This place has old fashioned charm and old fashioned service. The hotel has their own restaurant that serves great food. The staff are friendly and very helpful and chatty. I would stay here again. The only downfall is...

I travel to Launceston fairly regularly for work purposes and after trying a few places have settled on Balmoral as the place to stay. It has such a friendly team and they area all helpful. They are great with food intolerance and I love the fact that even after the first couple of visits they were aware that I was...
