Very dissapointed i must say. From dusty chipped tables to greasy oily fried seafood and the toughest roast i have ever encountered with solid vegies. On mention a senior staff member rolled her eyes at this complaint. Not good. Will not give another visit.

This was not what we expected when we booked online. This is a basic budget motel that I would only ever book if I had no other choice. The rooms are large, but the carpets are stained and the property not well kept. Friendly staff and there's a bar and restaurant attached to this property.

There is no doubt that this hotel was built way back in the past, but is in the process of some kind of a make over. The Staff are really good, and very professional, the soft furnishings, TV, etc are all modern and of a higher quality, and certainly better than the building itself, which is old, and I found...

Although clean the units are dated and in need of renovations. The carpets are worn. The furniture and fittings are dated. There is modern heating and cooling. It is noisy. Staff are friendly. The room smelled strongly of air freshener in a bid to cover up the smell of cigarettes. We expected better value for the price. Next time we...

We arrived in Launceston as part of our 9N/10D holiday in Tasmania, When checked (at the bar) the staff were quite friendly. We got to our room and it wasn't what we were expecting. The room was quite old and could, the walls were a cold quite and the frames were wooden. Thanks Riverside Hotel

This hotel has all the basic amenities you need such as kettle, microwave, fridge etc and it is centrally located near the tamar highway. It has wools worth just 5 mins away. Lots of food options are also nearby. If you are a muslim, there's king of kebabs around the corner, and quite a few Indian restaurants.

While you can see the River Tamar from the motel it is the better part of a kilometre away. The hotel is located on a busy intersection of the West Tamar Highway so there is inevitably some traffic noise but the motel room had a good little tv to distract us. The room was a very good size and our...

Booked my mum and aunt into this place for 4 nights, and I feel it was a major mistake. As I had heard this place was good, mum's opinion was, it wasn't good at all. There was a car club staying at the motel during their stay and every morning at around 6am they we're woken by these car club...

I left positive feedback on a prior trip last year. This trip not so. Dinned twice receiving a burnt piece of over cooked steak with watery sauce. Tried a Thursday promo Parma which was thin, the bottom soggy and the topping falling off at the side. Some what very different in size, quality and the restaurant was not busy. Accommodation,...
