location, heritage getaway”

location, staff, heritage

located in center of launceston, it's a great experience to stay in here. You can literally walk to stroll the city, they have offer ok food in the hotel. And room couldn't be better, we just love how they maintain the heritage of the room and combine it with modern touch yet you feel it's not awkward. Hotel is really nice, the only downside for this hotel it just they don't have lift which is not a really problem except for old people.

Excellent food and rooms”

Dining, Location, Wifi

Paid SGD 448.54 for 2 nights in a Spa Suite. I will always respect hotels for putting me up around Christmas Eve and Day which is when we spent time at the Clarion. Our room was in the Stables building and was spacious, clean, and comfy. On Christmas Eve and Day we had dinner in the on site restaurant and the food, beer/wine, and service was great. On Christmas Day we woke up and there was a bag left at our door with spare towels and toiletries as we had the do not disturb sign on. This was a nice touch and something I would like to see in other hotels. Free wifi was excellent and the spa was a rare treat for me. Definitely stay here if you're hitting up Launceston. Boag's Brewery tour is a few minutes walk away!

Beautiful hotel in great location”

The hotels location is central, has excellent dining and is very comfortable.

We stayed only one night but really enjoyed the stay. The reception was very helpful on check in and gave us a number of suggestions of sights close by that we should see. I never even had to ask, it was as if she had read my mind. The rooms are tastefully decorated, comfortable and extremely clean. Should I ever stay in Launceston again this hotel would be my first choice.

Lovely heritage style hotel”

Great dinning options, nice bed and bathroom!

We enjoyed our stay at the Clarion. From the moment we stepped in and were greeted by the friendly staff to the lovely dinner , the service and staff was excellent. I particularly enjoyed the heritage feel to the hotel, its nicely renovated but still keeps much of the charm. The beds were great after what seemed like a long flight and a long day! Walking distance to most of Launcestons eatery’s, it is conveniently located making getting around easy. The market just around the corner was a great way to try out the local tassie produce as well. Definitely staying here again!

Quality business hotel in former industrial area”

Cleanliness, efficiency, size of room

Arriving in Launceston about 10PM I was pleased that check-in had already been processed but disappointed no food, not even room service, was available, although staff did ring ahead to a Chinese takeaway (which may well have been the only place in town still open). The room was clean and spacious and came with free internet, although the design was a bit corporate, with every surface cluttered with signs and pamphlets and ads that I had to clear away before having a space to work. The Victorian (or possibly older) building was lovely but the immediate area was a bit drab and industrial, despite being near a beautiful park and only ten minutes' walk from the main shopping streets. Check-out was supposed to be 10AM, which I thought especially severe given my late arrival, but they seemed fine about me stretching this to 11AM.

Great hotel in Launceston”

Quality rooms with quality fittings. Centrally located to major Launceston attractions and wine region. Very comfortable beds and good pillows.

Nice two night stay. My only concern would be for older or disabled travelers. The two storey hotel had stairs that were fairly steep and I could see this as a problem for those not as mobile. Apart from this, i see no problems. I will definitely stay here again when next in Launceston.

Lovely room, great location”

Decor, location, food

We had room 35 in the main building which was very spacious, clean and comfortable. I liked the provision of fresh milk in the fridge and all the toiletries including toothbrush in case you had forgotten to pack yours. It just seemed quite well-thought out. Free wifi was very speedy unlike other hotels. It was also handy to have free on-site parking. Location was very close to the city park which was pleasant. We had dinners at Larceny's and were very pleased with the quality of the meal. We checked in again a couple of days later to room 34 which was a lot smaller than 35 with a tiny bathroom. It seems the room sizes can be very different. This review however is for room 35.

Walking distance to Albert Hall and CBD, free parking, comfortable rooms with spa

Lovely place with spa, modern furnish and clean. Central to the CBD and free parking a plus. Rooms are quite large and comfortable. Decent restaurant in Larceny, food reasonable compared to the rest of the city. No lifts for first floor rooms, so not suitable for everyone and slightly inconvenient. Right next to Albert Hall for graduation. Free wifi, but wifi only worked on one device for myself and did not work as well for my brother in law. Ensure you visit the QVMAG museum which was great. Cataract Gorge was nice. Alpaca park was really good, hands on fun, next to some good waterfalls to look at.
