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

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 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

My wife and I stayed in the Riverview Apartment for two nights in January, 2014. Carl, our host, was friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful in planning our outings. The apartment was quiet, immaculately clean and well equipped- very comfortable. The apartment has a private sitting area in the garden with a view over the Tamar River. Of particular interest to...

My husband and I recently stayed here and vowed to come back. The room was extremely comfortable but what really made it was a fantastic breakfast on the verandah over looking the Tamar river. Close enough to Launceston to go eat a great dinner but to be then able to get out into the country in a few minutes and... More

My family and I stayed at the River House in the first week of our 3 week-tour of Tasmania and the east coast of Australia, and didn't want to leave to see the rest of Australia! It was such a beautiful place - the garden has lots of fruit trees and the rooms were superbly clean and comfortable (heated floors... More
