This review is sort of sad of funny. I found the River House somewhat on accident while traveling around Tasmania solo for 2 weeks ... and chose because all reviews were positive, the price was fair, and comments indicated sort to special place. So, after booking on line and driving for a day, I pulled up to a beautiful garden with a great view and immediately realized this is the place one comes with someone special not alone. A fantastic room and wonderful bed and then the owner made me one of the ten best breakfasts (brekkies) I ever have had. (Note also: bed and breakfast in Tasmania usually means bed and something you make yourself -- this was totally opposite and blew me away). If only I had unlimited funds, I would spend a few days here every year.

From arrival to departure we enjoyed excellent hospitality, first class breakfasts and accommodation in a beautiful suite overlooking the river. Having retired from 14 years of B&B hosting, Anna and Michael provided a genuine, traditional B&B experience when so many others fall far short of expectations. Thank you both for a wonderful, indulgent stay. Great value for money.

We have visited a few times now in both winter & spring. Do yourself a favour and stay here. So close to town, (10 min max from CBD) Stunning river views. Beautiful accomodation, breakfasts are nicer than you will find in Launceston. Beautiful food with an artistic flair. Warm & friendly hospitality. Above & beyond expectation.
Winter time the atmosphere is romantic sipping complimentary port by the log fire while you watch the stunning River scenery from the large picture window in the cosy lounge. Springtime brings warmer weather and there are outdoor seats where you can sit in the garden amongst the gorgeous flowers and look out over the river. There is also a pool you can swim in. We will return again & again to this little peace of paradise.

My wife and I stayed at The Rive House in late October 2017.

The property is located a short, easy drive, 15 minute drive out of Launceston. It is clearly signposted from the road. The owners are lovely and very happy to help with anything that you need.

We stayed in the Garden View room, which was spacious, had a massive double shower, self-cooking facilities, and had a lovely view of the garden. The room has free wi-fi, and a queen-size bed.

A cooked breakfast, with Tamar-valley sourced ingredients, is served each day just inside a room with a view of the property and the river.

We absolutely loved it and will be back!

We stayed at the River House in July. Don't worry about the cold, just think about sitting around an open fire with a few wines before going back to your comfy room. The River House is very close to Launceston, but far enough away that the relaxing river view makes you feel like you are much further away. The River House is a great place to stay if you want to visit the Tamar Valley and a few wineries. The breakfast of course is wonderful as are your hosts. Highly recommended. (and I don't say that often!)

Thank you for staying with us despite the cold weather! As you said the area still offers so much during winter... and there's nothing lovelier than finishing your day by the fire with a glass of local wine.
It was our pleasure to host you and love the wonderful feedback. We truly strive to provide a relaxing environment.
