Awesome & Comfortable Experience :)
Awesome three nights with Nightcap at Riverside. We slept well and was allowed a late check out due to our late night flight. Due to the late check out we were also able to visit and enjoy Harvest Markets (Sat AM only) and more attractions in Launceston. We highly recommend this hotel for future guests. Thank you to all the staff :)

Amazing Stay!
The stay at nightcap at riverside hotel in Launceston was really good because there were all the amenities and comfortable + clean beds. It was extremely spacious and the bathroom was big. Service was okay, only cons were they did not give facial tissues and a telephone to ring reception. But everything else was great and it was super close to the CBD of Launceston. Great casino and cafe inside the hotel and nearby restaurants and shopping for food! Overall it was really good!

It’s about 5-10 mins drive to the city center and rooms are nice. However, we experienced loud noice talking at next house during mid-night ! In overall, it’s worth for money.

Tidy apartment accommodation if travelling w/ kids
This motel looks very unprepossessing from the outside. However, the apartments have been recently refurbished, and are in excellent condition. Having separate sleeping quarters for the kids and parents in our family made for a much better night's sleep. A cot was brought for our small person at no charge, which helpful. The bathroom is in very good order, quite spacious, and well appointed with toiletries etc. Kitchenette was suitable, including basic appliances and equipment. Free wifi and smart TV with Netflix subscription kept the small people amused. The on-site bistro was not worth the visit. Food sub-par, coffee dreadful. There is a bottleshop and Keno there, so that's not everyone's cup of tea. Not much in the way of dining alternatives in the area, but there is a Woolies nearby if you want to get breakfast fixings. Motel was conveniently situated if travelling by car, but not if you are without. Overall, fine for travelling with small kids, but if I were travelling for work or just with my spouse, we would stay elsewhere. no
