“Great place to stay”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Decided to stay here instead of Launceston because of a great winter deal. Peppers York Cove previously housed the terminal building for the now defunct Port Welshpool to George Town ferry service.

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment but in reality it is a three bedroom apartment with rooms not used locked up. The apartment has air conditioning and faces York Cove. The property is adjacent to the Tamar River. There is a balcony with an outdoor table setting.The living area is massive as is the kitchen. Fittings are all top quality with a Smeg oven, five stove top gas burners, a Smeg dishwasher and an Omega two door fridge/freezer with an ice dispenser (choice of crushed or cubed ice no less!). I was in kitchen heaven. One criticism is that the place lacks cutlery. There wasn't even a basic vegetable peeler. There was a tiny frying pan - which is fine for two people, but assuming that all three bedrooms were occupied, and if this kitchen is supposed to cater for 6 people, then more utensils and equipment needs to be added. A lot of the cupboards were bare.

The bedroom we had had a huge king sized bed with a soft woollen underlay - nice and comfy and it's own wall mounted TV and air conditioning. The view wasn't that great - just the brick wall to the next apartment block. The shower unit in the bathroom had a huge showerhead - very soothing. There is also a huge utilities room with a washing machine and dryer and massive cupboard space.

The apartment has Luxaflex blinds in the living areas but these need to be handled very gently as they are prone to jamming.

Internet is very reasonably priced (e.g.$8.95 for 24 hour period with a cap of 700mb). Not sure if if this was because this part of Tasmania was one of the first to be trialled for NBN.

The property has a heated swimming pool (didn't use it as it was too cold) and an onsite restaurant. It is open for breakfast and dinner (not sure about lunch), except on Sunday nights. Unfortunately I'm not able to comment on food as I didn't eat there. However, for those who like to self cater, there are at least two supermarkets in George Town - Woollies and IGA. There is also a BWS on the main street of George Town. The Town Centre is within walking distance of Peppers (about 15-20 minutes) - there is a path that heads around York Cove (goes all the way to Low Head light house).

There was a fairly decent games room - pool table, air hockey, a table tennis table, a few computer games, a jukebox, big blackboard but no chalk. There was a gym as well, but I didn't get a chance to check that out.

The apartment is very secure and there is a secure underground carpark which has free parking.

All in all, I'd stay here again. This would be a great place to stay for a longer holiday. Northern Tassie has many great beaches. One of the best properties in Tassie, particularly if you prefer contemporary lodgings.

Room Tip: Look out for special deals in low season

Location was great and hence great value for money. Upstairs, corner room gave great views of the Tamar River. Rooms are very modern and functional and very stylish with great colour scheme. Rooms are well designed, clean, well maintained.
Dinner in hotel restaurant was good with very good service.
Pool and riverside walks would be great in summer.

Very impressed with this accomodation and Cove Restaurant. The room was clean, fresh and well presented. Good heating and well appointed room. Value was pretty good given the location and facilities. Dinner in the Cove Restaurant was exceptional. The restaurant presentation and standards were very high, good choice of menu and selection of wines. The meals we ordered were very well presented and the ingredients well matched. Meal standard for the price made them very good value. Overall very impressed.

Stayed here whilst on a business trip. I was pleasantly surprised. The apartments are luxurious and clean overlooking the cove. Each evening you see the sun set and what an awesome sight. Sitting on the balcony in the morning you watch the tide move out and in the evening the cove fills up again. Its a great jog around the cove and such a serene place to relax - even with the stress of work. I have to give 10/10 for the Staff !!! The attention and support was better than I have received ever ! To add to this the Chef made special Vegan meals for us every day - breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food was sensational. I cant do anything but rave about this place and I am determined to go back for pleasure next time. I will travel to Tassie just to go to Peppers at York Cove.

Room Tip: The apartments over look the cove and have a balcony. If you can go for the apartments.

The apartments have a panoramic view across the marina and river. A drink on the balcony in the setting sun fully complemented a great day. The lounge is quite large with comfortable furnishings, the well equipped kitchen proved unnecessary as breakfast was good and dinner exceptional. The knowledgeable, professional and very pleasant staff operate at very high level.
The complex includes a pool and gym, security is tight.

Room Tip: Ask for a first foor apartment if on R&R, otherwise the hotel rooms are high standard functional...
