Although it is situated in a quiet area this accomodation is out of the way. Our apartment was very small... not even big enough to comfortably fit our 2 suitcases without tripping over them when we wanted to use the bathroom. Felt very uncomfortable and cramped . It s actually a very nice setting and has lovely little verandah area...

Stayed here for 3 nights with my family -- and it was a welcome find. Cottage was modern, clean and had everything we needed. The only downside is that the upper windows are not blocked by any of the blinds hence light come in quite quickly in the morning -- not good if you plan to sleep in especially we...

This beautiful location set the tone of our whole time in Tasmania. As an ex local we stayed close to my home town whilst allowing us both to relax and wind down. We enjoyed the lovely hotel room which was perfect for our needs. Although compact it isn"t compromised on size with the addition of the generous deck which allows...

We wanted somewhere close to Devonport to catch the early morning boat and this delivered in spades. All squabbling between our two boys ended when the opportunity to kayak on the river with the attendant boats was offered, it was hard to get them back on land. An idyllic way to end our holiday, lovely waterside apartments well fitted out.

We stayed here for 2 nights and absolutely loved it. We stayed in the Mezzanine Apartment which provided us with a fully equipped kitchen, two bathrooms and a large living area. The accommodation was spacious and very modern with beautiful views out to the river through the huge windows in the living area. There is a washing machine in the...

Unfortunately only had a chance to stay1 night in the loft apartment on our way home. Would have loved to stay more and explore more of Ulverstone and the surrounding area as looks an interesting area to explore. Great accommodation in a beautiful setting on the river. Apartment was very modern and comfortable, with the kids having their own space...

Stayed at the Studio which is small but so well designed for making use of the paces that the architect deserves an award. Everything is modern, clean and high end. It has everything you need if you don`t have to cook. Microwave, toaster, plates, glasses, wine glasses, washing up liquid AND a scaring pad that we we missed so often...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Two modern self-contained holiday apartments as well as a smaller studio room, built on the banks of the beautiful Leven River: a serene bush setting abundant with bird life and the occasional possum or wallaby visiting at twilight. The loft apartment, located above the main residence, was designed with an emphasis on privacy and is accessed from a separate entrance. The superbly decorated bedroom has a large en-suite with bath; the adjacent room features a kitchenette with modern appliances, and a lounge The superbly decorated bedroom has a large en-suite with bath; the adjacent room features a kitchenette with modern appliances, and a lounge with a queen size sofa bed and entertainment system. All rooms display beautiful views of the Leven River. Two balconies over-looking the waterfront, one with a barbeque, complete the experience. The Mezzanine apartment is the larger of the two premium waterfront accommodation choices, and completely separate from the main house. This modern private setting is perfect for larger groups and longer stays, as it is equipped with a full kitchen, washing machine, mezzanine bedroom, and a lounge with a queen size sofa bed and entertainment system. This apartment offers breathtaking river views from floor-to-ceiling windows, or from the private deck equipped with barbeque. The perfect retreat. Another option, only available with the Mezzanine Apartment, is the adjacent mobile cabin which has a double bed. This is the perfect place for additional members of your group who desire more privacy. The River Front Studio room is a smaller motel type room with queen bed, en-suite, TV, DVD, microwave, fridge, toaster, kettle etc. There is also a little gas burner and frying pan on the sheltered deck, which gives you the feel of being right on the river bank. ... more   less
