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

We stayed 2 nights in a studio apartment and whilst this may not be the newest motel in Launceston it had all the requirements we needed. The room was large, clean and the kitchen had all the necessary equipment for a short stay. Our room had a great view overlooking the Tamar River. The management was very friendly and accommodating.... More

This place is great! We planned to stay here for 4 nights after booking online. We ended up staying for 9 total. They were great, made sure that we were happy in our room. They also were very kind when I added more nights to our stay (on multiple occasions). The beds are comfy, the room was very clean, location... More

This is the first stop of our trip to Tasmania. It is only a short drive from the airport if you know the way. The outside of the hotel is not attractive at all. Since we have prepaid for the hotel we were given the key to our apartment with no additional information. It was low season for tourist so... More

Tamar River Villas is a 30-40 minutes walk to the city. If you don't drive, you must be prepared to walk or call in a cab (approximately AUD12). The bedroom apartment is big enough for 4 of us (2 bedrooms, one had a Queen sized bed while the other had two Single beds) and there is a living room, a... More

On arrival the villas look drab and dated but once inside the rooms are very spacious with a separate little kitchen that has everything including a full size cooker and oven. Our villa had been refurbished to a very high standard, the bathroom is huge and spotless, we had 2 nights but space wise you could easily spend a week... More

When we fist entered our room we where surprised, it looked nicer then what we had expected from the photographs on the website. The room was large, the bathrooms have been renovated and the kitchen was the best equipped kitchen of any self contained accommodation I have stayed in; there were things I hadn't expected like a roasting tray, even...

We stayed two nights at the Tamar River Villas and found this to be a great choice. Firstly, the rooms are very spacious - big living room, bathroom and bedrooms. The only relatively smaller space was the kitchen, so if travelers are self-contained, this may be a slight minus. Quite a few travelers noted the noise levels are quite high... More

Great location within easy reach to local sights. I had 24 guests from Queensland stay here for 4 days as a base to tour top end highlights. All were happy with their accommodation and were extremely happy with the attached restaurant "Lam's." He and his wife went out of their way to provide us with a menu of beautiful food.
