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 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
