Now back in the UK after our ten day tour of Tasmania,we contemplate the great places we stayed at around that lovely island and The River House can sit at the top of the tree for its wonderful location over looking the Tamar River, the superb hospitality that Carl offers in such a comfortable and relaxing fashion. We very much... More

Stayed here in early April 2014 for 5 nights. My first experience in Tasmania to visit a mate, and I don't think I could have chosen a nicer place to stay. The River House's website is very informative as to directions to the establishment, which is around 20 minutes out of Launceston, although very easy driving on the Tasmanian roads.... More

One of the best places we have stayed at in Australia. A mixture of B&B and self-catering, The River House is wonderfully comfortable, with owners who are incredibly attentive yet never obtrusive. We had the self-catering room, but because we stayed a few days, we given breakfast one morning (as well as breakfast provisions on the other day). The daily... More

We had a fantastic couple of nights at the River House in February. The breakfasts were outstanding and Carl was an excellent host. Our room couldn't have been better. It's a short drive north of Launceston, but the R&R is well worth it. Thanks Carl!

Only stayed one night here as we went through Tassie, but it was superb. From the warm friendly greeting on arrival through to the freshly cooked breakfast with the freshest of fruit I have ever eaten ( the fruit salad was amazing..could have eaten that all day long). The HEATED tiles in the bathroom are superb on a cold night/morning.... More

I stayed for 5 nights and it was so peaceful, I don't think that I have slept so well in ages, Carl and his partner make the most wonderful breakfasts. After a busy day it is blissful to come back to the quiet ambience. The view of the river is to die for, it is stunning. It is so nice... More

My husband and I loved our stay at The Riverhouse a few years ago, so much so, that we always said we would return, which we did last weekend for a 3 night stay. It was lovely seeing Carl and Helen again. They are the perfect hosts!Everything was again outstanding! This time, our 2 adult sons and partners accompanied us.... More

We only stayed one night at The River House and wished we had more time to indulge in our glorious surroundings. All comforts were attended to and breakfast was outstanding and enhanced by the view of the Tamar river from the decking . As it is off the main road there was no traffic noise which enabled a longed for... More

We booked for a 3 night stay at The River House and are so very pleased that we did so! We were welcomed personally by Carl as soon as we arrived . We stayed in the fully self contained apartment and were more than impressed. Attention to detail was above and beyond - with home made jams , fresh made... More

We loved the atmosphere of The River House. Tranquil, restful and picturesque. While we didn't get to meet Helen, Carl was very attentive and welcoming. The Riverdeck room was charming and well appointed and so too was the rest of this lovely home. Unfortunately the weather was against us but it made the fireplace in the lounge all the more... More
