8/10 Very good

Nice stay but not perfect.
The room was very nice, but I have taken a star away due to: - no reception on Sunday so nowhere to store bag - on an extreme hill, so bad for someone walking everywhere - I really don't like above-head showers where it only falls vertically from above. As someone fat, I can't clean the lower half of my body.

Highly recommend
This was our second stay at Areca and it was as good as we remembered. Bed was very comfortable, one of the most comfortable we have encountered in accommodation. Love the bathroom, great shower. Beautiful view of Launceston from our room. Highly recommend staying here.

Luxury accommodation
We were very happy with everything about our stay at Areca. The close proximity to city park and the town were also s bonus.

8/10 Very good

The room was was very well presented. I was impressed that the heater was to warm the room for my arrival. The down side is that parking situation is not the best if you are not fit. There is limited parking on the reception level. Otherwise parking is under the building with a sharp assent of narrow stairs to reception.
