places to stay and things to see

Hi,

i am going to Tassy in November and we are driving around for a week, i have a fair idea of what we are going to do, but i was after some specific places to stay. Me and my partner want to stay in a winery/vineyard and we also would loooooove to stay at a place that has a hot tub on the balcony overlooking the bush or the beach. i have had a look around but would prefer to hear from people who have stayed at such places themselves!

thank you in advance :)

Hi TJH, what's your budget, there's plenty of places, many very pricey.

Safe travels - Robert

Sorry, forgot to ask, where are you intending visit, north, south, east, or west, or all areas.

A week is good, but you will be stretched to see all points, can you give us some idea of what you have planned?

hi, i am starting in launceston and heading down the east coast towards hobart, then heading back up past cradle mountain back to Launceston, my budget is reasonable but preferably not over $400 a night, i might be pushing it but thought it was worthwhile asking,

Hi,

We attended a wedding here a very pretty setting.

The bride and groom stayed in a cottage as part of the package and said it was great. But who doesn't enjoy their wedding night? :-)

Tamar Ridge Apartments are on Brown Brothers Tamar Ridge vineyard at Rosevears just north of Launceston overlooking the Tamar river. They're very nice and in the midst of the West Tamar wineries region. http://www.tamarridgeapartments.com.au/
