Being out of Launceston, but only about 10 minutes away was great. The place is set in a large garden with great views of the river. The area is quite and peaceful and set off the road. The "room" we had was large and self sufficient. With its own ensuite (huge), and kitchen which was well laid out and equipped.... More

We stayed here recently for 2 nights to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary. It was absolutely perfect for that occasion. The room was lovely, beautifully appointed, lovely decor, with everything you could possibly need. Who doesn't love a double shower and under floor heating in the bathroom, a spa, heated towel rails, and even a basket of thoughtful complimentary supplies... More

From the moment we walked through the front door of The River House and warmly welcomed by Carl, we knew we had chosen a winner! The River House is exquisite . The rooms, attention to detail, views, hospitality and scrumptious breakfasts are First Class. Thankyou for a wonderful stay, would definitely stay again. Highly recommend!

We stayed in the Riverview apartment for 4 nights in February Everything was perfect, Carl and Helen had thought of everything. The apartment was lacking for nothing, and extremely well equiped The views over the river were beautiful and the garden was great to explore and relax in. Given the chance we will definitely return

For our first trip to Tasmania and our first ever B & B we chose The River House and we were not disappointed. From the moment we stepped into Carl and Helen's home we were relaxed and felt right at home. From the home made biscuits port the heated bathroom floor and the scrummy breakfast everything was 100% top notch.... More
