The Cornwall Historic Hotel

Stay at The Cornwall Historic Hotel in Launceston and you will be in the centre of town and the centre of history. Built in 1824 by John Pascoe Fawkner it is believed to be the oldest brick building in Launceston and Tasmania. As Launceston’s leading hotel of the time, it hosted many banquets, balls and public meetings, including the historic meeting in 1834 that led to the settlement of Melbourne.

Centrally located in Launceston, The Cornwall Historic Hotel is only five minutes from City Park, ten minutes from Cataract Gorge and close to the city’s major shopping precinct.

Completely refurbished in 2019, The Cornwall of today is a modern hotel that honours its historical heritage. The 40 guest rooms are fresh, comfortably furnished and warmly inviting. Free WiFi is available throughout the hotel and there is also an on-site laundry.
