Description: The Sebel Launceston Hotel offers boutique Launceston accommodation in the city centre, minutes to the vibrant seaport. Perfectly positioned on the corner of St John and Williams Streets, within walking distance of Cataract Gorge, Aurora Stadium, James Boag Brewery and the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery. Located on Cornwall Square, one of Launceston’s most historic sites. The site was originally used as the city’s market garden as well as a lumberyard and a works depot. It was previously known as the Market Square, however, after the visit of the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and York to Tasmania in 1901, it was re-named Cornwall Square in their honour. Showcasing natural Tasmanian stone and timbers throughout the interior and locally commissioned art, this Launceston hotel offers charming, contemporary accommodation in one of Australia’s oldest and most picturesque cities.
