We had a lovely stay here in the 'Tom Thumb' room. The room was immaculate and Maureen and Raj were the perfect hosts. The king size bed was very comfy and there was a great selection of movies to play on the large flat screen TV and music for the DVD player. There was secure parking and the spa was... More

I recently booked several rooms for some overseas guests who had been engaged to carry out some service work at our industrial site. The guys had stayed here previously and again requested to be booked in to "same place as before". A month is a long time to be away from home and they were made feel very welcome and... More

Thank you Brett for again making these reservations from overseas with us. These guests continue to be so respectful of the property, they certainly appear to enjoy their stay here - especially the privacy each has with his own suite, and it is wonderful to see them again each year. Your comments reflect what we have found our business guests... More

We stayed here four nights. Had we not booked and paid in advance, we would have moved out after one sleepless night. The bed was uncomfortable. The security lights made sleep almost impossible, and the winking of the interior security system was awful. Outside, security cameras document your every move. Sure the unit had luxurious fittings, and the sitting room... More

It was our last day in Tasmania, and our best accommodation of the trip. What really stood out for me was the attention to detail in the well appointed rooms, but I think what made it special was seeing the pride Maureen and Raj had in their business, perfect hosts - thank you for giving is the perfect end to...

My husband and I spent a night at the Charles Robbins in mid-January during a week-end getaway in North-Eastern Tasmania. Maureen and Raj were outstanding hosts – very welcoming. We were given a platter of food on our arrival and all soft-drinks in the minibar were free of charge (as was the Port). We stayed in the "Tom Thumb" room... More

A well-appointed home away from home, very clean and very well looked after. Quiet location, and charming hosts. We stayed over New Year's eve and New Year's Day and they left us a card and cake on the table - a very nice personal touch! A short walk to the restaurants at the Peppers resort, and to the Pier Hotel.... More

What a great place. We stayed for one night in the Phoenix Suite and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Talk about providing the extras! The property has obviously been purpose built with comfort in mind. Having a sauna in my bathroom after a jog around the river was great! The place is very secure and right in the heart of town.... More
