Our first trip to Tasmania & very happy to have stayed at River House!; Well appointed rooms. Great hospitality. Comfortable lounge & living areas to relax - Views of the Tamar river. Breakfast & service were superb.

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

We stayed for five nights, and it was such a great choice. Perfect place to visit the Tamar Valley wineries. The solar heated pool was surprisingly warm, and the room was lovely. But the highlight was definitely Carl's fantastic customer service. Thoroughly recommended.

My husband and I stayed at The River House for 4 nights, including New Year's Eve. It is such a restful setting with lovely views and even the weather was gorgeous! Our hosts, Helen and Carl, had thought of every little detail in the room and the breakfasts were gourmet and really set us up for each day of sightseeing.... More

Helen and Carl did not disappoint...the location is so peaceful and the view over the Tamar River is something to behold... wonderful... More
