From the warm welcome on our arrival to the spotless room with its heated floor in the ensuite, the jonquils in the vase to the crisp white bed linen,all the way to the freshly squeezed oranges and memorable breakfast in the elegant dining room with a log fire and barrista grade coffee - this was a perfect place to stay....

We enjoyed five splendid nights in the King Suite (recommended!) there in April and as it turned out we were among the first... More

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!
