We have just spent three nights at the Ulverstone River Retreat - it is on the banks of the Leven River and is absolutely delightful - Katrina, the owner is very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for her. Our mezzanine unit was well equipped and was a real home from home. It is situated about 10 minutes drive...

Well designed units 2km from Ulveston. Delightful location on bank of river. Each unit has private outlook and is well equipped with microwave, fridge and gas burner or barbeque. A bonus is the kayaks you can borrow to explore the river. Lodge is also next to a famous local Fishing spot. Oh and we saw a platypus!

On arriving we were genuinely excited to see that our room looked out to the Leven river close by. Yes the room was small, but we didn't care as everything else was exactly what we were looking for. The bathroom was well appointed however compact. The deck just outside our bedroom was perfect for afternoon reading. Lovely spot if you...

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.

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
