Venue: Peppers Silo Hotel, Launceston
Bringing history alive on the banks of the idyllic Tamar River is the unique characterful Peppers Silo Hotel. Dating back to the 1960’s, the heritage building which spanned 35 metres high containing grain in four large silos, is an iconic landmark converted into a sophisticated 9 storey hotel providing a unique place to stay in Launceston.
Designed within the original silos and the new North tower are beautifully appointed modern hotel rooms with all of the modern amenities. Plush interiors are decorated with earthy tones to compliment the surrounds and offer in-room complimentary WiFi, LCD TV with Chromecast and Foxtel channels, mini bar and guest en suite. Taking in sweeping views over the meandering river, the Gorge River Rooms and Premier Suites boast private balconies where you can soak in Launceston’s natural ambience.
Overlooking nearby Seaport, Royal Park, the Tamar River Basin and Cataract Gorge, guests are centrally placed to walk from this Launceston hotel to the city centre, with public transport a mere five-minute stroll away across the footbridge, linking Seaport and Kings Wharf together. Should you require assistance our tour desk operators can recommend the best attractions to visit during your stay.
