The hotel is well located and is part of a hotel/bistro complex. It is right next to the inlet and it is a ten minute drive to a safe swimming beach. Check in was efficient.
Paid for access to the Internet but it was basically useless. Connected OK but the speed was so slow it would not load Facebook pages. I suspect the hotel is aware of this as they asked me about it when checking out and when I told them it was not usable they did not charge me for the time used.
Rooms are not air conditioned. It was 36c when we were there but it was still OK but we were in a downstairs room so not sure what it would have been like on the top floor.
Outside of hotel is very dated however was very impressed with room once we got inside. Spacious with a King and Single beds which were very comfortable. Very clean and nice crisp linen. Overall excellent value for money, only 6 minutes from centre of city.
The Best Western Riverside is located approximately five kilometers from City Centre, the gateway to the Tamar Valley. Family …More
We stayed at Tamar River Villas in June. Good location, close to the Launceston city, nice views from the room as well. We requested to change our room from downstairs to upstairs and they did it for us, very impressive customer service. Room was comfortable with cooking facilities. I would love to stay here again. I will definitely recommend this accommodation.
