Stayed at Areca hotel for 1 night on December 27th. From outside, the hotel looks quite new and well maintained. We got the room on first floor. The room looks a bit tired. Think the hotel does not have a lift because I saw guests have to carry their bags down to check out.

Hello! Thank you very much for taking the time to review our property. We are glad to hear you found the staff at the breakfast room friendly and helpful but sorry to hear you were not quite pleased with your stay. The building is built in 2012, so it is fairly new, there is no lift, as it has just two floors and only nine rooms. The new management started here just some months ago and we are updating the rooms and facilities step by step. The breakfast we offer is continental style and it is lighter compared to hot breakfast. We serve also fresh pancakes, which are very popular amongst our guests. We are sorry to hear the WiFi connection was not good while your stay. We had some issues there for some days but it is all fixed now. WiFI is an essential nowadays and we really focus on the good reception and connection. Apologies, that it did not work properly for you. We are very glad you like Launceston, definitely come back and enjoy what this beautiful town has to offer. Thank you for staying with us and we wish you all the best. Kind regards, Piia

I was checking in on a Sunday evening and clear instructions via email and message were provided to me for self-checkin. Had a room upstairs and nice view of the city. Simple but sufficient breakfast to start the day and the staff at the breakfast counter was always cheerful and

The bathroom was fully setup for a disabled person. It felt like we were staying in a hospital room. Black carpet in the bedroom and black tiles in the bathroom - the ambience was awful. The shower curtain finished about 30-40 cm above the floor and covered two sides. It was

Hi Arthur, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us such a detailed review has it helps to ensure we can provide the best experience for our guests. I have checked your booking and you were placed in Room 12 which, as you have correctly stated is our all access room. The only differences in your room aside from our other beautiful rooms is the bathroom and wider entry to allow for wheelchairs. There is a stand alone sink in the bathroom but there is no vanity/bench space. In lieu of this, we have provided a small stand where you can keep and store your toiletries. I am so sorry that you had issues with the light in your room due to the curtains. We unfortunately were not aware of the problem at the time so we could not alleviate the issue for you. We have also since amended our shower curtain, which once again we were not aware was an issue. Thank you again for taking the time to leave us a review, as your feedback has made us aware of the above issues which have now been fixed. I do sincerely hope that you enjoyed our breakfast and your overall stay in Launceston. Yours kindly, Renee.

Very comfy beds and nice views over Launceston. Tucked away off the traffic from the main road so quieter than many of the hotels on the main roads. Stayed twice in 10 days. First night was in normal size hotel room - not tiny but not huge. The second was on the ground floor
