Love Launceston ”

My husband and friends had a wonderful weekend in Launceston. We stayed at the Hotel Grand Chancellor & it was fantastic. It’s located in a very central and accessible position. Close to many shops and restaurants. The staff were friendly and very knowledgeable and helpful. We enjoyed the nightly happy hour and Aldo the delicious buffet breakfast. It would have been great to have the breakfast included in the price we paid for the rooms, Our only criticism would be that as there were 4 of us (2 couples) it would be convenient for all of us to get room keys- we were issued 1 key per room. When asked it was no problem to get another one, it was just annoying to have to ask. We will definitely re-visit Launceston and the Hotel Grand Chancellor. Go Hawks!! Jo Martin

Great Central Location and comfortable room”

Nice view over Holy Trinity Church. Close to restaurants and City park. Excellent hot buffet breakfast

we had an enjoyable 3 nights at the grand chancellor, launceston. it was a great location for walking to restaurants, shops and the city park for children's recreation. the breakfast buffet was delicious and friendly staff in the restuarant which made it easier with young children. the beds were comfortable and reasonable range of channels on the flat screen tv. the room has a large bathroom with shower over bath. only difficulty encountered was the portable a/c unit which was quite noisy, but a fairly constant noise which didn't disrupt childrens sleep.

This is a lovely hotel right in the middle of Launceston. We received a great deal to stay here, and were extremely happy with our stay. In fact, we would have loved to have spent more time here. The reception staff were extremely helpful. The hotel room was fantastic and very roomy. The view from our room was lovely, from the nearby "Boags Brewery" to the surrounding hills. A recommended stay while exploring the wonderful city of Launceston.

Great experience”

Grand Chancellor met our expectations to a very high standard. The foyer was inviting and elegant, the reception staff provided excellent service, the room was very clean and spacious and the view was pleasant. Yes the building is a bit dated, but one can see that it was once a Grande Hotel and very luxurious. It is very well maintained. I liked the proximity to the town centre, the river, Seaport and Cataract Gorge. The included breakfast was delicous, with a vast array of choice. I would most definately stay here again - no hesitation and I would also really like to recommend it to anyone who is after a Hotel that is more than just avarage. Job well done to all the staff we came across.

Our review of the Hotel Grand Chancellor”

Large room, comfy beds, friendly staff

Our experience staying at the Grand Chancellor was very good. Staff were friendly and helpful, hotel was very clean and beds were comfortable. Location was ideal and centre to most things. The only negative was the variety on the room service menu. This is only a small thing but while there were pizzas and BLTs, there wasn't many dinner dishes to choose from. This would not prevent us from staying there again when next in Launceston.

Impressed with Refurbished Rooms”

Great value as room accomodates families with no extra surcharges

only had one night in launceston so wanted something that was well priced and that would sleep 3 people in the room. we were planning on being out sightseeing so intended to spend little time in the room. based on reviews i had fairly low expectations for this hotel. however, i was pleasantly surprised upon arrival. refurbished room and bathroom were modern. only slight issue was my son dropped something down the back of the sink and upon retrieving it i discovered that housekeeping obviously hadn't cleaned there for a while! this was disappointing as i am very picky when it comes to cleanliness and had been very impressed up until this point. despite that i probably would stay there again as i think it offered great value for the price we paid.

Location

The Grand Chancellor in Hobart is spectacular so I expected a similar experience in Launceston. I was highly disappointed. It's nothing special. Fairly out of date. Room had small air-con unit but NO heat ... Bizarre. The Launceston Grand Chancellor was probably pretty awesome back in the 70's, but it appears they haven't changed much since tgen.

Reasonable quality for a reasonable price.”

Location. Privacy. Close to Transport

The hotel could use a facelift and some real investment. You can see how this would have been the jewel in the crown of Launceston's grand hotels once. But alas, no more. The staff are competent and courteous (if not very speedy). We didn't try the food and room service seemed overpriced. Central air con seems like a long forgotten relic, but our room was furnished with a decent little stand alone air con machine. There's nothing really glamorous about this hotel anymore, apart from its imposing facade and marble-esque foyer. If you're in Launceston for a day or two, it's a reasonable option for a fairy reasonable price. You won't be overly disappointed, but it probably won't be the highlight of your trip.

Friendly, value-for-money but too many stars?”

Friendly and helpful staff. Nice historic-looking building. Easy walk to central Launceston without being right in the middle. Rooms looked nice. Restaurant was enjoyable. Good value for the price.
Mattresses a little soft. Table in room was a bit dirty when we arrived. Parking is in an open-air public car park adjacent to the hotel.

We stayed here for a few days during our honeymoon. The location was convenient, easy to get to/from by car or on foot to explore Launceston. The per-night cost gives a better indication of the hotel quality than the star rating; it wasn't what I'd expect for 4-4.5 stars (aside from the foyer), but the hotel charges weren't at 4-4.5 star level either. The restaurant had a good range, particularly at breakfast. They seemed happy for people to linger a little late over breakfast, but the cutoff time for arriving for dinner was strictly observed (Tasmanians don't seem to eat late).

This hotel is fine although a little overpriced for what it is. It is one of the only largish hotels in Launceston and has a grand feel but the rooms are like old motel rooms. It's clean and central so no major complaints for what we needed which was a comfortable and central one night stop over.
