Trish & Rob were such great hosts and do everything to ensure you have the perfect experience. The food was incredible; Trish even used a range of local produce. Can't wait to return to The River House!

Trish and Rob are the perfect hosts! You'll enjoy an amazing breakfast while taking in the most splendid view of the river. Our room was beautiful, clean and comfortable. The house itself is welcoming and you'll want for nothing.

As regular visitors to Launceston, we usually stay in town but not now! We discovered The River House, a relaxed environment, well managed, rooms clean and well designed, scenic river views and the breakfasts. Say no more! Hope it is not booked out when we next travel.

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?

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
