If you are noise sensitive, this is probably not for you, as there are highways either side of this motel. We, however, have had a lovely 4 night stay in our comfortable, clean, very spacious & self-contained room. There is an on-site restaurant (closed Sunday & Monday nights), but we have cooked our own meals in the very adequate kitchen....

Situated 10min out of Launceston. Cheap and cheerful - bathroom has been updated and very claan. The unit as very basic but has free wifi and laundry. If you want something for a night and not expensive this is fine. it is situated between two roads so a little noisy.

Loved the accommodation - perfect position, spacious & spotless rooms, reception people were friendly and helpful and the views were beautiful. At night of the city lights was gorgeous. My teenage daughter and her friend were reluctant to leave they loved it so much. By coincidence l'd stayed here approximately 16 years previous but had no recollection when making the...

Located about 5 minutes from the centre of town. The rooms are really large, kitchen basic but well equipped. Stove top and oven, microwave. Supermarket close by. Great location. A bit noisy from the road behind and thin walls. Staff extremely helpful. No fuss motel, would stay there again. Beds are really comfy. Free WiFi that actually works and is...

We have an excellent stay with spacious and clean apartment for a family of 3. Great view of Tamar River too. Kitchen was a plus point. Common laundry is also being provided. Free wifi and parking. A restaurant with great steak is also within the vicinity. A short drive to the city centre and a good drive to Tamar Valley.

Our room was spacious with great kitchen and cooking facilities. The room was clean and well serviced. Well located with just a short drive to the city. Overlooks the Tamar River. A little tired, however, the price was right for the accommodation.

Close to Cataract Gorge and Launceston city centre, we found this location convenient. It is sandwiched between both sides of a main arterial road, with a nice view of the Tamar River. Some traffic noise but this is a spot to lay your weary head after a long day touring. Self contained with excellent kitchen facility. Everything worked perfectly. Good...

We stayed in room 32 which was once the owner's residence. It was quite spacious with lots of room for our two boys, but also dated (the kitchen and bathroom appear to have been modernised, but remaining spaces need some decorator love!). It's between the restaurant (we didn't dine here) and the reception so we weren't concerned about our boys...

The rates they charge are extremely competitive and great value for money. My wife and I have stayed there twice. The last time we were there they allowed me to use thir reception area and a fax machine at no cost for a telephone job interview. I got the job with their considerable help. The managers and the rest of...
