This beautiful location set the tone of our whole time in Tasmania. As an ex local we stayed close to my home town whilst allowing us both to relax and wind down. We enjoyed the lovely hotel room which was perfect for our needs. Although compact it isn"t compromised on size with the addition of the generous deck which allows... More

We wanted somewhere close to Devonport to catch the early morning boat and this delivered in spades. All squabbling between our two boys ended when the opportunity to kayak on the river with the attendant boats was offered, it was hard to get them back on land. An idyllic way to end our holiday, lovely waterside apartments well fitted out.

The accommodation was spacious and very modern with beautiful views out to the river through the huge windows in the living area. There is a washing machine in the... More

Unfortunately only had a chance to stay1 night in the loft apartment on our way home. Would have loved to stay more and explore more of Ulverstone and the surrounding area as looks an interesting area to explore. Great accommodation in a beautiful setting on the river. Apartment was very modern and comfortable, with the kids having their own space... More

Stayed at the Studio which is small but so well designed for making use of the paces that the architect deserves an award. Everything is modern, clean and high end. It has everything you need if you don`t have to cook. Microwave, toaster, plates, glasses, wine glasses, washing up liquid AND a scaring pad that we we missed so often... More

Beautiful location by the tidal river. Nothing was too much trouble for our kind hosts. We were able to securely park our boat on the premises. The lovely golf course is next door. We stayed in the motel style room on the ground floor, there is no washing machine in this room and Val kindly offered to let us use... More

First port of call for us from the boat trip. We stayed for 2 nights and have to say it was a lovely relaxing place to commence our holiday from. We stayed in the Loft Apartment, which had a beautiful view over the river. Cooked up a nice steak which we got from the boutique butcher in Ulverstone on the... More

A lovely place to stay for an extremely relaxing holiday. The accommodation was comfortable and had everything we needed. The bonuses included the river, the kayaks, the grassy slope covered in tiny flowers, the easy drive into the pretty towns of Penguin and Ulverstone, and the extremely helpful and kind Tony and Val.
