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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

A massive thanks to Tony and Val who made our stay over Christmas 2013 one to remember. Val had decorated our apartment (the Mezzanine) with Christmas decorations which was a really nice touch and for the entire stay, nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was well fitted out and was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. At this...

Lovely location by the river but close enough to town. Our apartment was immaculate and well maintained and it's a pity we could only stay for one night. We had our 7yr old and a 3yr old with us in The Loft Apartment which was suitable for our needs for one night however, one of the other apartments would be...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Two modern self-contained holiday apartments as well as a smaller studio room, built on the banks of the beautiful Leven River: a serene bush setting abundant with bird life and the occasional possum or wallaby visiting at twilight. The loft apartment, located above the main residence, was designed with an emphasis on privacy and is accessed from a separate entrance. The superbly decorated bedroom has a large en-suite with bath; the adjacent room features a kitchenette with modern appliances, and a lounge The superbly decorated bedroom has a large en-suite with bath; the adjacent room features a kitchenette with modern appliances, and a lounge with a queen size sofa bed and entertainment system. All rooms display beautiful views of the Leven River. Two balconies over-looking the waterfront, one with a barbeque, complete the experience. The Mezzanine apartment is the larger of the two premium waterfront accommodation choices, and completely separate from the main house. This modern private setting is perfect for larger groups and longer stays, as it is equipped with a full kitchen, washing machine, mezzanine bedroom, and a lounge with a queen size sofa bed and entertainment system. This apartment offers breathtaking river views from floor-to-ceiling windows, or from the private deck equipped with barbeque. The perfect retreat. Another option, only available with the Mezzanine Apartment, is the adjacent mobile cabin which has a double bed. This is the perfect place for additional members of your group who desire more privacy. The River Front Studio room is a smaller motel type room with queen bed, en-suite, TV, DVD, microwave, fridge, toaster, kettle etc. There is also a little gas burner and frying pan on the sheltered deck, which gives you the feel of being right on the river bank. ... more   less

“We were happy in the Loft but the other unit below us and also facing the river had a nice veranda and would be worth considering.”
