Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Located near the mouth of the Mersey on Victoria Parade this excellently located and very private accommodation made our stay in Devonport thoroughly enjoyable. Wonderful hosts Rex and Julianne have done a fantastic job in making this your home away from home. Five stars all round.

Staying with Rex and Julianne was an absolute delight. I spent 14 days in their stunning property with a beautiful garden and located in the most picturesque part of Devonport. The apartment was spacious, full of light and very clean, with the comfiest bed ever. Their beautiful dog Beau was very well behaved and loves a good pat too. Will definitely stay again.

We were staying in Devonport as the nearest big town to Lake Barrington where we would be watching some of the Australian National Rowing Championships. Birchwood seems to offer a range of types of accommodation and our apartment was located in the hosts’ house. It was large, spacious and well set out. Parking was provided but in difficult locations and not protected from the rain. It rained a lot over our two days here and we found the unprotected path between the car and our apartment a challenge even with umbrellas which had to go in the bathroom to dry off. None of this would be an issue in dry weather. Bed was large and comfortable, and kitchen was well appointed. The fridge had been turned off before we arrived but we didn’t notice as milk was in the door. We had placed liquids in the fridge and were surprised when they weren’t very cold at breakfast. The fridge was easy to turn on and we had cold liquids from then on. I looked for the internet password and it wasn’t till our second day that I spotted the note taped to the tiles above the sink. No major issues, but they caused me to reduce what would otherwise have been a top rating.

Privacy, comfort and great location with a welcoming greeting from owners Rex & Julianne, were just the icing on the cake after a month long trip around beautiful Tasmania with my husband Alan. Looking out our lounge room window at the Mersey River with the Spirit of Tasmania ferry passing by was wonderful.

We stayed for two nights before boarding the Spirit of Tasmania the following morning. On arrival it feels like you have driven into a family driveway (mainly as you have!), but the service from the owner was very family oriented too. He met us as we pulled up and showed us to our two bedroom apartment. The owner lives on site and has converted the property to have two self contained apartments. Our apartment was large, had sea views, and was fully equipped. It is a little old fashioned, but very homely and comfortable. Location is very good for restaurants and Devonport exploring. Highly recommended.

What a great apartment. Only had a one night stopover before catching the boat but was really impressed. Rex was a really nice man who offered to help us unload the car right away. Great sized rooms, beautifully decorated. Bed was so comfy, better than ours at home. Very very happy

We have just stayed at Birchwood and were very pleased with the standard of accommodation. We stayed for 2 nights in the upstairs studio. It was clean, spacious and well fitted out. Rex was very good to engage with and was keen to know that we were comfortable. We intend to return to Birchwood in early April and are confident that it will again meet our needs. Overall we rate this accommodation and location highly.

Stayed here twice - after getting off the Spirit and then the night before returning to Melbourne on the Spirit. Great location, really clean and well organised. Host was very helpful both with checkin and tourist information. Nice room but maybe a little crowded with furniture and nicknacks.

Our apartment was like a retreat, accessed through a fragrant rose garden. Rex was warm and helpful, pointing us to a magical evening of penguin watching just a few Km away. Great location, across from a riverfront park, near to a lighthouse park, and easy access to CBD and coastal road. Devonport was a great destination.

Wonderful to have overseas guests comment and enjoy Devonport as a location and being so central to Tasmania's best scenic attractions. Our Birchwood accommodation location on the Mersey River and parklands, where the ferry "Spirit of Tasmania" sails past Birchwood daily. "The place to stay when away"
