8/10 Very good

Problem Solved
Check in was effortless, friendly and informative. After settling in and sleeping before an evening out I decided to put some heating on in the room, however could not get the heating unit to work. Contacted reception manager Tony who thought the problem might just be remote needing battery change so changed battery but still no success. After trying multiple things Tony offered to change my room or if I did not want that he would bring in a portable column heater. I asked for the column heater which Tony brought in quickly, however that wouldn’t work either. After trying another heater it appeared the power outlets were not working on that side of the room after some recent electrical work. Finally Tony brought in the heater from his own office and we were able to get it working on the other side of the room. I can only say that despite the heating difficulty Tony was an absolute legend and very determined that I would be warm and comfortable for my stay. Once back from my evening out I had a warm, comfortable and quiet sleep. Many thanks to Tony for being such a patient, helpful and persistent person.

The Art Hotel is the old Bakery in Launceston. We have stayed there many times over the last decade. It is lovely, the rooms have an historic quality to them and the place is pure fun. We always stay in the stable room it is magic! You can walk to many enjoyable eateries, food courts, cafes and shopping. There also is the cataract gorge walk, the art gallery museum and several historic sites as well. Whether you are passing through or you use this place as a northern base the Art Hotel is the place to stay!
