On Top Of The Hill
Areca is at the top of York Street and the area is quite hilly. The room was clean and comfortable and the complementary continental breakfast was very good. They even have a self serve pancake maker. The staff were all friendly and helpful.

Lovely Stay
I found the accommodation very pleasing. A Short walk to the park. A short car drive to the CBD. The car parking is very tight and requires some 4-6 point turns if full, and not very accommodating to large vehicles. However the staff were wonderful. The continental breakfast is adequate. The rooms were spotless and the bed comfortable.

Great 2 nights stay - beautiful City view
Great 2 nights stay with beautiful City view. Pia the receptionist has excellent customer service skilks. She was very cheerful and helpful. She helped us carry our luggage up to our room. Likewise, Angela the lady who manages the breakfast room has great customer service skills too, in our 2 days stay she always served us with a lovely smile. Our room was roomy and really clean. I could have given Areca excellent in all aspects except for a couple of things - the bed was a little low for me and on the first day our towels were not bright white - a little yellowish. But the second day it was ok. Will happily recommend to family and friends. 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Nice view and clean room
The only problem is there is no elevator and it is a bit difficult to bring heavy luggage up to the room.

Short visit
Quick visit to Launceston. Can walk to most things at this end of town including Cuty Oark and Boags tour. Staff are lovely and breakfast included is a real bonus.

Early birdies :) :)
Breakfast could have been offered a little earlier than 7:30 as we had a full day ahead and needed to check out a bit earlier. We were offered cereal in our room but just really would've liked some toast and tea. Otherwise our stay was great and staff were as accommodating as they could be. Overall ... no complaints.
