Booked the June long weekend for my husband's birthday for a special weekend away from Sydney and could not have been more delighted.

Easy trip, Syd - Launceston with Virgin. Pick up hire car, 2 and half drive via a few scenic spots and catch up with relatives (sorry the drive is more if you stop to visit the relos but an easy 2.5 if cruising and stop for a coffee).

This was a Cudo deal so not sure what to expect and if the photos would live up to view but it was even better. For busy people or people with time on their hands this is a wonderful destination.

It is football season so a first to sit in a bubble bath and watch the football but heaps of fun especially with the coloured lights surrounding the bath and for those not interested in the football gazing at the view or reading with back to TV. Something for everyone.

Loved the breakfast supplies and self helping to what was supplied and enjoyed some fab meals at the pub and The Cable Station. Xanders highly recommended but was booked out so we bought some local scallops (from Hurseys) and cooked up a treat in the apartment. Highly recommend the Cable Station, the history and crayfish (lobster for the uninitiated) cooked in a wood fired oven.

Hope to make it back....winter was a perfect time to go without the crowds

Spent 2 nights here using a groupon voucher. The apartment was great. It was one open plan with lounge, bed and kitchen/dining. Very modern and the biggest shower room I have ever seen. The brekky options in the fridge were great, the options in the freezer not so great. Great spot with great views. Parking out front. You do share the front entrance area with your neighbour but we never saw them. Not sure if I could afford to come back at their normal prices even with the loyalty card. Overall a beautiful apartment with all the modern features.

Recently stayed in one of the apartments and had a wonderful relaxing 2 nights. The bed was very comfortable, all the extra bits were thought of in the kitchen, including a great coffee machine and coffee to match. Fantastic views right across the town, beaches and the Nut.

Other trip advisor visitors will see i reviewed Horizon in 2012, and gave it a resounding 5 stars!! This experience was different - and I believe when booking you should really enquire as to whether you are getting one of the 2 original apartments - which by the way are still stunning and 5 star, or the 2 newer apartments. We stayed in Hellyer this time, which conjoins Peggs and did not enjoy this near as much. They shouldn't be the same price, in my honest opinion. We had the same entry way as the other apartment, and could hear their TV, cutlery, mumbles of they conversation - which makes you very self aware. The 'one bedroom' style of Hellyer also didn't appeal - it isn't spacious or as luxurious as the 2 older apartments. I just felt these few things - made it difficult to then overlook the frozen bread and breakfast provisions and other 'not quite there' features. While we were running the spa bath (which again is smaller than the other apartments) - the tap flew off and water went all the over the bed. A small thing, which by itself didn't matter - but it was all these smaller things that add up - to it being a far less polished experience. The jazzy lights around the spa in the shower were cool and fancy. Look, we would definitely give Horizon another go? Would we be very specific in which apartment we wanted - resounding yes! Do your research on this one folks.

Room Tip: Ask for a room, other than Peggs or Hellyer.

Hello,

I am very sorry to read your comments here. Our new apartments have been really well received by others, so it is a shame that as a valued past guest you have not enjoyed them also.

I just need to clarify though, that to sounds from the adjoining apartment were only audible from outside of your apartment, not from within it.

At $340 per night, it has to be said, these apartments are very good value for money.

We are considering changing the way breakfast is provided, but it is a trade off between offering a good selection and having a lot of food wasted.

Guests are welcome to request any of our four apartments and if we are able to, we are happy to oblige.

We do hope to see you again.

Regards,

Clint.

The view very very good, room new and clean. They even got a spa bath beside the windows with the Nut view.

Only need to attendtion, you need to cook your breakfast by yourself. The owner already placed some "materials" inside the refrigerator and wont be a big problem.

Stayed two nights in Hellyer Apartment being one of the Horizon Apartments. Fully self contained with breakfast provisions, oven, dishwasher and laundry. King bed and deep spar bath with a magnificent view over Stanley. First two nights in Tassie for my wife and I and could not have asked for a better start to our trip. Absolute luxury with all modern fixtures and fittings. We'll worth the cost and we will return.

This was a beautiful spot. the views were to die for, all the facilities were modern, you could see forever from in the apartment....just rest and relaxation this is where you should head, or if you want to do a bit of exploring just a fabulous stroll to the beach. and the beaches go for ever......loved every minute we were there.

Room Tip: rooms with fantastic views. facilities were second to none
