Stayed 4 nights here, very comfortable in the family unit for 4. Great Views. Out of town location but only a 5 minute drive to central Launceston. Close to Cataract Gorge and supermarket just a short drive away. Value for money, clean and tidy accomodation with a friendly and helpful caretaker/manager. Good restaurant onsite, with a car park was full... More

We had a 2 bedroom apartment on the ground floor which was very clean with plenty of space in the lounge\dining,there is a small kitchen complete with oven and microwave. The exterior is quite outdated and it is situated between the incoming and outgoing lanes of the road to the tamar valley,this results in a bit of traffic noise. The... More

Stayed one night with a friend while on a road trip adventure up and down the Heritage Highway, and were very glad we did. We booked a two bedroom with river view and were very pleasantly surprised. The room was large and spacious, was very clean and tidy, and had a well appointed kitchenette and bathroom. We even had a... More

Tamar River Villas is easy to find with a sat nav, even though the directions may not seem to make sense, as the site is in between the inbound and outbound lanes of the highway. The host was very friendly and helpful, and the room comfortable and clean. We stayed two nights, and ate in the restaurant. The food there... More

We stayed here for 3 nights while in Launceston. The room was large and included modern furniture. Although kitchen and bathroom were dated they worked perfectly well and a good shower in my book is paramount. We used the cooker and hob both nights which were well equipped. The place was clean and the manager was really pleasant and helpful.... More

Tamar River Villas are easy to find with a Sat Nav, driving to Launceston from the airport. The Riverside location is close to the Launceston CBD and has a local Woolworths Supermarket, plus a good selection of small shops only 1.2km from the Villas. Very friendly reception staff, nothing was ever to much trouble. Our room key was left under... More

Staying with my 18mth old daughter, reception was extremely helpful with my room booking and organised a portacot for her. The guy was very friendly and the room is beautiful, tidy and very functional. I appreciate the full kitchen and the space! :)

Fairly old motel, stayed in a 2 bedroom unit, 1 queen, 2 singles. Rooms generally clean, kitchen quite old, laundry/washing line available, located a bit out of town. Have also stayed at 6 other hotels around Launceston and would recommend Auldington (in town) or Country Club Villas (out of town) as my favourites.

This was our last stop in Tasmania before sailing back to the mainland. We were pleasantly surprised. Whilst it is not the newest motel around, it was very clean, comfortable and relaxing. The staff member was friendly, courteous and welcoming. The beds were comfortable and there were sufficient cooking facilities available, although if there is a negative, the kitchen needs... More
