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
