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.

Everything about this accommodation suited us fine. Pre-travel communication was prompt & helpful, as we were flying in from Perth & arriving after-hours. We had an upstairs apartment opposite reception and discovered there's a ramp from the back at the far end which facilitates luggage moving. It's true the road position is not obvious from the website, but traffic noise... More

I have mixed feelings about Tamar River Villas. Stayed for 3 nights. Firstly the apartment was spacious with comfortable beds and adequate amenities, bathroom was good with good pressure shower. However, the road noise was a disappointing factor. Didn't realise that although the apartments overlook the river there is a main road in between and at peak times the noise... More

Very poor condition. The sink had no drain. It was just a hole. Toilet seat didn't fit on the toilet. The bath/shower had a glass door that kept swinging towards u while u shower. Kitchen was below average. Blankets stunk. Never again will I stay here. Very disappointed.
