Leisure Inn Penny Royal was built originally as a corn mill in 1840. It was relocated and rebuilt over 130 years, stone by stone, into a heritage hotel with modern furnishings. 

The hotel is less than a 10-minute drive from Cataract Gorge, which has a sightseeing chairlift, Victorian gardens and an outdoor pool (November to March).

Other city highlights include the weekly Saturday harvest market and wine tasting -- the city is part of the Tamar Valley wine route and is known for producing some of Australia's best sparkling wine.

Learn about Tasmanian history at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery or visit Franklin House, a Georgian house home to a 180-year-old oak tree in its grounds.

We stayed in a disabled unit which was quite small. The shower had a curtain around two sides and did not go anywhere near the floor - hence water splashed all over the bathroom floor creating a very dangerous situation . The male in reception under training was quite unfriendly and should not be allowed to deal with clients until he knows what he is doing!

Good location and value for money. Restaurant only open one of the 2 nights we were there - food and service was very good.
Other Comments
On arriving we found out that the room key had to be collected 200m down the road. Would have been nice to have been given that information prior.

The staff sorted out the breakfast error with the least amount of fuss. Off-street parking is included. Location is closed to the Gorge and river walks. Very little street noise at night.
Other Comments
I was given misinformation about the breakfast arrangements, there is no air-conditioning in the rooms due to the thick walls/heritage status(?) (so I opened the windows but the Venetian blinds rattled non-stop), the people in the next room tried to open the adjoining door late in the evening, and the hotel has a tired air about it. Re the breakfast packs, they are full of sugar (fruit in syrup; yogurt bar; cereal; muffin), so not good for people with special dietary needs or people who are looking after their health. Also attracted ants. Re loyalty points, Qantas or Velocity points can only be awarded if one books direct with the hotel--i.e., not through TravelZoo etc.
