Ulverstone River Retreat
Watch kingfishers from your front deck, fish and kayak the river, or just soak up the birdsong and peace. This gorgeous riverside spot offers a smart upstairs apartment and a separate villa, both with decks out front and BBQ facilities.
Glencoe Rural Retreat
Just north of Sheffield at Barrington, this gorgeous property is owned by celebrated French chef Remi Bancal. Stay in its romantic and stylish rooms (no kids under 12) and enjoy a superb three-course dinner ($60) – available by prior arrangement...
Launceston's newest and hippest hotel was once a dreary hospital. It's all light and bright now with snappy decor, intelligent service and a stylish restaurant (meals $8 to $33, open breakfast, lunch and dinner)...
Sheffield Motor Inn
The spacious rooms and apartments at Sheffield Country Motor Inn are set back from the main street. There are one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, all clean and well equipped.
Apartments Down Town
Happily dwelling in a bygone era, these glorious self-contained art deco apartments are stylish, spacious and well equipped, with two or three bedrooms. Sumptuous 1930s trimmings make an alluring change from the standard Tassie colonial retrogression.
The Lighthouse Hotel
The faux lighthouse crowning the central well here feels a little like a circus tent, but the motel-style rooms are neat and clean. All have mini bars and tea- and coffee-making equipment...
The reception here is in the old Wiltshire Junction Train Station which will conduct you to rather bricky motel-style rooms on the water's edge, with good views over Sawyer Bay. You can dine at the excellent on-site restaurant Stanley's on the Bay.
Wintersun Gardens Motel
The rooms in this motel on the edge of town are simple but well equipped and neat as a pin. The grounds have a lovely old-fashioned feel with rose-filled gardens, box hedges and hanging baskets.
Homelea Accommodation Spa Cottage & Apartments
Just over the road from the water, Homelea is a neat, brightly-painted complex with comfortable units, some recently renovated. There's plenty of space for kids to tear about and a playground where they can burn energy. There's also a spa cottage...
Swansea Waterloo Inn
You can't miss this red-brick block on the beach side as the road bends through Swansea. It's aesthetically uninspiring, but some of the rooms do have good water views...
Barclay Motor Inn
This may not be your most architecturally rewarding stay in Tasmania but you'll find all sorts of good facilities, including a tennis court, swimming pool and tourist information...
Edinburgh Gallery Bed & Breakfast
This funky, art-filled boutique hotel puts an eclectic stamp on an old Federation home, just to the west of the CBD. Some rooms share immaculate bathrooms, and all have quirky, artsy decor.
Cradle Mountain Chateau
This large edifice is another Federal Hotels enterprise with an attractive foyer and public spaces, including the excellent Wilderness Gallery, but its rooms are less impressive.
Mayfair Plaza Motel
The rooms are large and comfortable at the Mayfair – its redevelopment in the ’90s incorporated a brown-brick courtyard that these days is looking rather lifeless and forlorn...
Quality Hotel Gateway Inn Devonport
The standard accommodation here is of the rather ordinary motel variety, but if you are after somewhere really top-notch to stay in Devonport, check out the hotel's deluxe spa rooms: these are swanky and super-stylish and feel like they belong to an e...
Peppers Seaport Hotel
Shipshape (literally) by the river, this glam hotel's contemporary design extends to the spacious, deluxe rooms, accentuated by natural timbers and muted tones. Classical music fills the corridors; most rooms have balconies.
Blue Hills Motel
Before they painted this modern gem cream and blue, it was a stark and stunning white. There's just no accounting for taste...
Argosy Motor Inn
It can't be said that this brick establishment is a thing of great beauty, but the rooms are clean and tidy, ranging from standard to 'executive' suites with spa, and the views over the Mersey are lovely. There's also a bistro on site.
Customs House Hotel
This deceptively spacious hotel is housed within a pretty sandstone building above a popular (and often boisterous) pub, just moments from Salamanca Place and Battery Point...
Quality Hobart Midcity Hotel
Don’t be put off by the Midcity’s graceless ’70s stance, because the staff and rooms are great, the location’s peerless, there’s 24-hour reception and an on-site restaurant and bar. A good all-rounder.
The original facade was an interesting 1968 edifice, but a recent makeover has ‘modernised’ the exterior and made over the inside with coffee-and-cream colours, dark timber floors, flat-screen TVs and natty bathrooms...
Clarion Hotel City Park Grand
A gorgeous Italianate façade promises more than the rooms deliver, but the PA is a spacious, centrally located option. The Honeymoon Suite occupies the sky-lit billiard loft. Breakfast available.
