We stumbled across the River House when looking for somewhere to stay the night after a day crossing on the Spirit of Tasmania to Devonport before heading south the next morning, and I doubt we could have found a better place. It started well when I called to say we probably wouldn't arrive until 9pm, which was met with a... More

Trish and Rob were lovely hosts and even sent us off with a hug- what lovely warmth. Breakfasts were created daily with thought. We even decided after a tiring day to stay in one evening and this was catered for by allowing us to eat take-away in - very much appreciated. Trish booked dinner for our first night on New... More

You always wonder, what makes for a great stay? A beautiful location? Comfortable bed? Friendly hosts? A luxury bathroom? Memorable views? Clean accommodation? Fast and free wifi? A good breakfast? The River House has it all and more. Having traveled Tasmania's East Coast and North East, this was our final stay and despite having had already some excellent accommodations, Trish... More

As Tasmanians, we had not been to this little pocket of tranquility just outside Launceston. Our experience of The River House was beyond expectations. Faultless. Hospitality at its best. If you choose to stay here, you are in for something very special. From the moment we were greeted by Trish and Rob we felt instantly comfortable and welcome. The surroundings... More

We were greeted warmly on arrival and the personal service was exceptional for the entire stay. It is most obvious that they love what they do and give... More

Just a 10-minute drive north of Launceston, perched on a ridge overlooking a sweeping view of the Tamar Valley and with its own orchard and lawns, The River House just about has it all for the visitor. We enjoyed five splendid nights in the King Suite (recommended!) there in April and as it turned out we were among the first... More
