“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2014

Perfect place to stay with a big family. Rooms are spacious and the access is very easy. The owners make you feel at home, no matter what.
At night, you can see the cityscape with all the lights popping up around the Tamar Valley. I strongly recommend staying at the Village Inn.

Stayed here overnight after a wonderful two-week holiday in Tasmania. Just needed a reasonably priced bed for the night for five of us. We had the option of squeezing into one apartment or taking two, which we did because the price was very reasonable. There was a bit of a hiccup when we arrived and my father was given the key for a room that was already occupied! The owners sorted it out quickly and the other guests didn't seem to mind the intrusion. As other reviewers have commented, the rooms are very dated but in excellent condition. We ate dinner up at the restaurant and the food was tasty, good value and generous.

I have stayed three times here and can't rave enough. The staff are fabulous! Funny, quirky, respectful and charming. The location is outstanding with sweeping views of the Tamar Valley. Rooms are clean and have kept the insane and wonderful 1970s tiles in the bathrooms. I love it and value for money is excellent. The deck in the sun in the afternoon with a cool drink is a lifesaver.

We stayed here for 2 nights as a big group and we all really liked it. The rooms admittedly were very dated and was like a step back to the '70s' but it had character. It was clean. It was convenient. And the staff were exceedingly friendly, from the reception staff through to the house keeping. The indoor heated pool was great as we were getting very cold weather despite being January!
Included Breakfast was basic but was sufficient for us (something we are not use to getting included into the price in Australian hotels)
Free wi-fi which surprised us because we NEVER have received free internet in an Australian hotel.
Big thank you to Glenn, who greeted us, who also happened to know the same people as our father (small world) - we really enjoyed our stay!!

Friendly, helpful hosts made us feel welcome and Pam's knowledge of the area made our visit all the more interesting. Rooms were spacious and I had a great view down the valley to the city.
Very clean, comfortable accommodation which was made even cosier on those cool nights with electric blankets.
Dinner in their dining room was just delicious Will be back!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view as it is lovely to lie in bed and look down at the city

First things first - Thank you Pam and Glenn for rescuing two weary travellers and putting us up for the night on such short notice and that too after hours past 10 pm. And not to forget the bottle of fresh milk Pam gave us for our coffee the next morning. Friendliest hosts we have seen in a long time. The rooms were comfortable with excellent views. Pam and Glenn had some ready suggestions on what to do in Launceston. Breakfast was nice though minimal. Our thoughts though - we would have loved some eggs.

Stayed here one night in an emergency, but came back for two more cancelling our other hotel because of the excellent hospitality. Kudos to the entire team. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The family rooms are a bit dated but the views are fantastic. The double rooms up front of the prope...

Hello Suraj,
To read a review that was composed as yours was is the most satisfiying element of our business. We believe that customer service is the hallmark of the industry and we do try our best to deliver that to our guests. It becomes very fulfilling when it is noticed and appreciated, as you have done and we thank you very much.
You will have to make a return journey one fine day to experience the upgraded breakfast , eggs will be exactly to your liking, we just need to refine the process of delivery but we are working on that also....the new pizza oven is almost in situ, another reason to make the return visit.!
Once again many thanks,
Pam , Chris ,Craig and Glenn
