We stayed three nights here and found the rooms to be quite large, beds comfortable and clean. The small well equipped kitchen complete with a full stove/oven was an added bonus if you did not want to eat our every night. We had an upstairs room which had a nice view of the Tamar and the villas are certainly very convenient to the city. We enjoyed our stay and will stay here again on our next visit to Launceston.

We would like to thank Danny and Fiona for their wonderful hospitality that was shown to us on the weekend.

We made a booking with Tamar River Villas for the Friday night and were so impressed that we decided we would like to stay there for the entire 3 days we were in Tassie. Unfortunately the property was fully booked for the Saturday but we came back on Sunday!!

The property does not look all that 'flash' from the roadside but TRUST ME, the rooms are spotless, the linen crisp and clean, the bathrooms are bright and airy with great showers and the rooms are 100% self contained! A fridge, a microwave, a full sized oven, hotplates, pots, pans, cutlery, crockery, salt, pepper the works!! There's even dishwashing liquid so you can wash up!! The property has a good guest laundry too so if you are planning on staying a while, this place has the lot!!

Our hosts were very welcoming and were happy to answer any questions we had. They also made sure that I had a ground floor room due to me having a disability and being unable to climb stairs. Lovely people.

Danny and Fiona, thanks for having us. We look forward to staying with you next time we're in town.

Tidy and clean apartment which requires a little maintenance. No clock in the unit as Alarm Clock in Bedroom not working. Good location being close to Launceston and great view of the Tamar River from top level. Also enjoyed the restaurant on site and friendly staff at both Villas and restaurant.
Had a great time and would recommend to others visiting the area.

We have just spent two nights at the Villas and found it a most enjoyable experience. The rooms were spacious and had all that we needed for sleeping and eating. Very easy to find. We were warmly welcomed and any questions asked were answered with a smile. had a little trouble with Wi-Fi at first but Danny fixed the problem for me and was so courteous at all times. As for the food at Steve's Grill (you can ring him on 63274200)......... what more could one say. Nothing was too much trouble for Steve or his ever smiling assistants, Aliesje and Laura. We had Room Service both nights. Their Pork Kassler is to die for. I know where to go back to if there again.

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
