The iconic new Peppers Silo Hotel in Launceston has officially opened.

Special opening rate for new hotel

The iconic new Peppers Silo Hotel in Launceston, Tasmania has officially opened its doors to the public.

Originally erected in 1960, the Kings Wharf grain silos were left unused for decades until two years ago when construction began to breathe new life into the structure, transforming the silo barrels into a state-of-the-art contemporary new hotel.

The redeveloped site is now a 10-level hotel featuring 108 guest rooms, including 52 inside the barrels of the former silos, a restaurant and bar called Grain of the Silos, undercover car parking and an integrated lobby and reception space.

Located in a prime position on the edge of the Tamar River and close to the beautiful Cataract Gorge, the once unused silo barrels have transformed into a $25-million luxury-by-design redevelopment which includes one and two bedroom apartments.

Amenities at Peppers Silo includes a fully equipped gym, relaxing day spa, hairdressing salon, private dining rooms, restaurant and cocktail bar with views overlooking the water all the way to Cataract Gorge.

To celebrate the official opening, Peppers Silo has launched a special opening rate.

Stay at Peppers Silo in a Tamar River Room from $199 per night, and receive breakfast and complimentary Wi-Fi. This offer is valid until 25 December.

    Nice enough, but trouble is, when you walk out the door, you are in Launceston. What's to do? Drive OUT of Launceston (after looking through the museum) and see the rest of Tas before the loggers destroy it all. Nearly too late!! What a mess they have made!!

    Tourists? Tasmania is like new Zealand, but grumpier and needing some antidepressants.

    Not only loggers are intent on destroying Tasmanian ancient forests, the government is intent on letting developers build high rise buildings in Hobart, Launceston and any other place they can get their hands on. Proposals for cable car on Mt Wellington and Cradle Mountain, large expensive developments on East Coast and near Stanley will leave a picturesque Tassie looking like a pseudo Disney Land.

    Accommodation is becoming more expensive so will be nearly impossible to have any kind of holiday soon.

    Besides the Launceston museum a cruise on the Tamar River is interesting plus visiting the Cataract Gorge.
