Star Hotel: Get some "star dust"

The budget askewed Hotel is above the cafe and bar. I had room No.1, which is on the far end of the building but is right next door to the "rooftop garden". On normal nights, it was actually quite nice since my room is quite far removed from the noise and sounds of the bar downstairs.

Unfortunately, the noise and sounds came to find me on Friday night when a bunch of half-drunk youngsters came up to the "rooftop garden" to play and started raking up a din. The blinds covering the walkway windows were not adequate to stop them peeking in and a couple of them started banging on my door, egging me to join in the merriment. This bunch continued to loiter around my doorway til the early mornings of Saturday...and when I went to sleep, they were still egging each other on in something.

I realised the next morning that some of them may be guests of the hotel.

Comfort-wise, the room was alright. The walls were rather spartan but clean. It was not as snazzy as a business-class league room but it is no backpacker dorm-room league either. I do get a mini-fridge, a TV and complimentary coffee/tea along with a kettle. The bed was alright but the pillows were quite limpy stuff. Surprisingly, the ensuite bathroom is quite spacious and there was even room for a chair. No tubs though.

The Hotel has an assortment of rooms - Singles, Doubles and Family. All ensuite.

Location is the draw here - a mere less than 5 minutes to Brisbane Mall and The Quadrant for shopping pleasures. There are a number of cafes and restaurants around the block.

Braemere House: Boutique Bed and Breakfast in Launie

I would definitely not call this a true bed and breakfast, but would definitely recommend that you pick this as your destination when coming to Launceston. Braemere really provided us with a great location, and made us feel more like we were staying with family, rather than a drab hotel. Also, at the same time we were treated to a semi stocked fridge, breakfast necessities, laundry facilities, and full cable with sports and movies!

All this, with the seclusion of the suburbs and a beautiful view of Launceston!

Towel Warmers were a nice touch, and we liked how many tourism info packets were available to us in the living quarters!

Braemere House Bed & Breakfast: Great stay for 2 Couples!

This was a wonderful stay for the money! We spent only AU$130/night for 4 people to stay in the self-contained unit with a kitchen, two bedrooms with double beds, a big bathroom, a kitchen and dining table, a separate toilet & sink, a living room with couch, two recliners & tv, and even a washer and dryer with laundry detergent. Oh, and the price also included a basket full of breakfast foods - muffins and cereal and toast.

The owner was super nice when I called to book and very friendly as we checked in and left! If you are two couples traveling, this is a perfect place to stay!

There was a lovely view out over the city of Launceston from the pretty gardens behind the unit - and it was basically private to the self-contained unit.

The TRC Lodge (formerly Rose Lodge): Launceston: Trapped in the 60s

NOV 2008 LATEST: Rose Lodge is no more. Time rushes everything by. The property is now renamed the TRC Lodge.

Review from 2001:
This is a B&B on the lower end.

My mates and I managed to grab the cabin which was good for 4 persons and came with refrigerator, microwave, toaster and a little garden at the back. Breakfast meant a packet of bread with jam and butter; nothing obstentatious.

It was actually a very nice stay, as the host was very kind though the furnishment and decoration in the cabin reminded us of the 60s! We even stumbled upon some games from that era which amused us no ends.

The owner was Joan Humphreys.

Review from 2001:
That 60s feel!

Legana Caravan Park: Camping

The campsites at the back of the park were a little cramped (the park was almost totally full though) but it was a quiet area away from the centre of town but not far to drive into Launceston.

At night there were rabbits everywhere playing in the playground (I wonder if they tried out the slide LOL).

It looked very nice & rural (except there were wallabies eating all beside the roads when we only drove a few kms at night and that was quite worrying, as we almost hit one)
