Tamar River Villas

Reviewed February 24, 2014

I prefer to stay a bit out of any central city so Tamar River was a good choice. I hadn't booked but Danny was welcoming and had a spacious ground floor room available. The kitchen would be good for an extended stay but I was there for only 2 nights. I had one dinner in the on-site restaurant where the waitress seated me at a window with a river view; very nice if you are travelling on your own with only your phone or a book to look at.
I can't agree with people who complain about road noise; there's not much night-time traffic in Tassie! I spoke to Fiona when checking out and she was a friendly person too; very important in hotel/motel proprietors. Thanks Fiona and Danny

Stayed here for four nights. Was very pleasantly surprised by the quality and size of accommodation. The air con unit is the quietest I have ever known - what a pity other hotels don't have this type. The bed was so comfortable I slept well every night. The location is ideal and would certainly recommend Tamar River Villas

We stayed 1 night before flying out of launceston. It was fine. Very clean. Probably better if you plan to stay a few days because it has a good size kitchen. The bedroom is very spacious. The let down was the bathroom. It was clean but very worn out and if you are more than 5 foot 2 inches tall you have to crouch to get your head under the shower.

The villas are in excellent condition, everything seemed new and really clean. Manager was pleasant. Easy to find the property off a main road, though some road noise can be heard though not excessive & we had a good night's sleep in comfy beds. Air Con was great as was wifi.
I would happily stay here again.

Perfectly situated to see Launceston. Shopping centre just up the road and restaurant on-site. Very helpful staff - nothing seemed to be a problem. Quite clean & tidy. Little bit of road noise, but it wasn't too bad.

We stayed at the Tamar River Villas for 2 nights and had nothing but a pleasant stay. The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating, and even let us have a bit of a sleep in. Beds were comfy and the price was right. The only thing would be if the restaurant had a bar attached to it as well.. as we weren't allowed to sit in there and have a drink without having a meal, which I thought was a little weird. Can't fault the hotel for that though

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.
