Reviewed January 1, 2014

Loved it. We had booked here for 2 nights. Now I wish we could have stayed longer. The River villas are in a very convenient location. Not far from Launceston CBD. Close to everything. We had booked a 2 bedroom villa. One had a queen bed and the other had 2 single beds. All the rooms were good size. The entire villa was very clean and spotless. Very well done up. Good furniture, bedding, linen, kitchen, fridge. They also had coin-operated washers/dryers. Wi-fi was available. Parking was right outside the villa.
Overall, a great place to stay. Would most definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Choose rooms with a view of the Tamar River. It is wonderful.

Went for a holiday in December 2013 with my family. Was running late and the staff were very polite advising late checking procedures. Had a nice river view apartment. Very neat and clean. This is not close to Hobart CBD but only 5 min drive with a car. Recommended.

Room Tip: River views are good

We stayed in studio with queen and single. WiFi was just being changed to new system so went from crappy paid WiFi to good free WiFi. Room very clean, easy parking and easily accessible location as launch point for drives around Launceston. 5min easy drive to Launceston centre. Very functional kitchen in room with good pots, knives etc. Also fresh towels and tea towel daily. Would stay here again.

Stayed for one night. Was plain and serviceable, and had the added bonus of an oven as well as the usual microwave. Access was a little strange as we were unused to Launceston's unusual split roads - Elouera Street is now really the inwards lane of another road and both lanes run the same way. This resulted in a near-miss event when trying to enter the motel's driveway!

The other downsides were firstly that if you arrive after 6pm, the office is closed and you have to communicate with the manager by phone - then you are told that your key is under the doormat! Secondly, there is a restaurant on the premises and the night we were there several noisy patrons exited it around 10pm and they were so loud as to be heard in our room.

Stayed for 2 nights while travelling by motorcycle. Upgraded to refurbished room which was great. Comfortable bed, no noise. Manager Danny drove us into Hobart in the morning and gave some great tips and ideas. Recommended if you you're happy to stay a few kilometres from the CBD.

I will certainly come back here. Easy to access, close to everything, lovely clean and large room, very comfy bed, great views, fantastic manager and just very welcoming. The apartment was self-contained with a great kitchen, lovely clean and roomy bathroom and nice dining area. Just so clean and spacious.

We travelled from Hobart to attend an athletics carnival at St Leonards for our daughter. Andy and Fiona were very welcoming and helpful. The 2 bedroom fully-self contained apartment was very clean, well equipped, the bathroom modern. I would recommend Tamar Villars to anyone.
Thank you for a very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: If you travel as a family room I recommend the self contained apartment.
