Attention to detail be the host; open fire; view of river
Our stay at River House was the best experience of our whole week in the Tamar Valley. We had a fantastic time touring the wineries, site seeing around Launceston and touring the countryside. Staying at RH was perfection. Carl our wonderful host served beautiful food and created a warm and beautiful environment.

lovely location and wonderful bed
cleanliness/large room/great breakfast
We had the King Suite which was just lovely. Spacious room and a most comfortable bed. Very quiet setting definitely needed a car to get around. Close proximity to wineries and Launceston.Breakfast was fresh and local produce used - it filled us for the whole day! caring,knowledgable hosts.
