Horizon Deluxe Apartments
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 April 2014

As we walked through the door, we both stopped and said "wow" (I stayed with Dreamer3132). These apartments are absolutely wonderful. Very comfortable and luxurious appointments. My first time cooking on an Induction cooktop, but the instructions for that (and more importantly, the coffee machine) were very clear. Every detail seems to have been thought of - right down to the light switches (where do I get them from?)
The views were almost indescribable - absolutely stunning. Being the dunce that I am, I couldn't work out whether the sun would rise or set over the Nut (it rises) so I set the tripod up for some beautiful pictures. I ended up waking early, made myself a coffee, and took some beautiful photos as the sun rose.
Stanley itself is a lovely town - everyone was so friendly - including the lovely receptionist from next door where we went to pick up our key.
We loved our stay and can't wait to come back. Also - I have recommended Horizon Deluxe Apartments to my work colleagues, and at least one of them has said they will be heading your way on their next holiday!
Sorry about the quality of the pictures - these were from the camera phone.
We had one very minor hiccup - the DVD wouldn't play - a quick phone call and that was sorted.

Best: the room, the view, the spa, and cannot forget the awesome shower!
Worst: The roadworks on the drive from Launceston to Stanley. (ie nothing bad to say about the room)

Room Tip: All rooms have the same view. And it is awesome.

I was expecting this apartment to be wonderful because of the fabulous reviews. Well, it exceeded our already high expectations. I don't know where to start. My partner and i like to stay in self contained apartments wherever possible so we can buy the beautiful local produce and cook fresh meals ourselves. We had purchased a beautiful piece of fresh Atlantic salmon at one of the towns we'd visited prior to arriving at Stanley. I was so impressed at the utensils and cooking equipment that i took a photo of them. What i enjoyed, was, the crockery etc had obviously been used by previous guests so i didn't feel that it was there just to be admired. While enjoying our beautiful tasmanian fare, we overlooked one of the most spectacular views i've had the pleasure of witnessing. The washing machine and dryer were a wonderful addition. Breakfast provisions were plentiful and delicious. Frankly, there was nothing you could want that wasn't provided. The check-in process was terrific. We picked up our key from a lovely lady at the Sea-view Inn just below the apartments. Highly recommended!!!

These apartments are to die for. Everything was so modern and clean and the view was to die for, you could sit in your spa with a glass of whatever takes your fancy and watch the sun go down. Self contained, was great and the breakfast was plentiful and yummy. We can't wait to go back there.

Room Tip: All rooms are equally as good as the other.

We had a 2 night stay in Godfrey apartment at Horizon Deluxe Apartments. Booked a 2 night special via Luxury Escapes which fitted in very nicely with our plans for a holiday flying into Launceston from Melbourne for 5 days. The room was very nice and the view was spectacular of Stanley, the Nut, and Bass Strait.
A few things that caused me not to give 5 stars. One - it was too far out of town to walk anywhere; two -was the fraying carpet; three was that there was on hospitality. No reception so we had no idea where to check in. We rang owner who told us to pick up key to our room from hotel next door. When my hubbie went into hotel next door to get key it was like they weren't really interested in knowing anything about our accommodation. Just handed over key and did not want to check booking info or ID or anything. Also - one suggestion for future....If you going to have candles to light then make sure you provide matches. The gas igniter in top drawer by front door was no at all useful. However we did have good time and Stanley was great place to visit...waking up to cows mooing each morning and a beautiful view x

Thanks for this review.

I am sorry to hear that we did not live up to your expectations.

I think it is a bit unfair to mark us down because we are too far away from town, as we are just 1 km from the centre of town and it is an easy 15 minute walk. The fact that we are just out of town affords us such a magnificent view of the town at the base of the Nut, and the surrounding countryside.

The "reception" is a common model of operation for this type of accommodation, as it is not practical for such a small boutique accommodation business to have its own manned reception.

As for the check in process - as we trust people to do the right thing, and therefore don't bother hassling guests for all of their particulars. We choose to give guests an easy, smooth, transition from their car to the luxurious surrounds of their accommodation.

I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay.

Clint.

My husband and I stayed in the"Godfrey" apartment and it was just beautiful!!!, they had thought of everything, the apartment was quiet, clean, everything thing worked well, the bed was so comfortable it was hard to get out off and totally relaxing (just what we needed!!). Fantastic breakfast provisions were a great touch.. The views from this apartment have to be seen to be believed!!!
Perfect location, amazing apartment = a wonderful weekend at Stanley...
