Well fitted out self-contained accommodation. Shame we were just there for one night as it would be nice to stay for a weekend. If you want to eat out you will need to drive.

As fairly frequent visitors to Launceston who have stayed in a large variety of places in and around the city, this is now our place of choice. It is spacious, clean and modern with fantastic views that take the breath away - especially early in the morning with the mist lifting off the river, and the first rays of sun hitting the vineyards.
Now that the vegetation is growing up between the apartments, they are also very private. The 15 minutes that it takes to drive into the centre of town is more than compensated by the amenities and comfort of this place. Sure ... there is no longer a restaurant on site, but with the range of fabulous gourmet deli products available in the city, we are more than happy to dine in, and enjoy some of the local wines available from the mini bar.
If I have one gripe, it is the difficulty of parking if you have a large vehicle as the lane way is quite narrow, however this minor detail is not enough to stop us returning often.

Room Tip: Unit 10 is our choice, best view, private balcony.

The key to this establishment is the term retreat and that’s where it both excels and earns a couple of niggles.

Architecturally these units have ‘Wow’ Factor to die for, all the views are over the Tamar River and they are fantastic. Internal design is fantastic and the floor to ceiling window beside the bath made soaking in the tub a rather decadent experience. A sliding panel between bedroom and lounge gave a feeling of great spaciousness.

Oh the niggles no internet although my wife did point out that this was a bonus in the case of a romantic retreat, traffic noise and some sort of bird scarcer in a neighbouring vineyard was a little intrusive.

I tried to put my finger on why this property didn’t automatically rate an excellent and talking to a local all was revealed, the property was purchased as part of a commercial business package two years ago and as the unwanted part it was put straight back on the market, apparently in the past it boasted a great bistro and was 'THE PLACE' for wedding receptions. Well the bistro is now closed and the level of personal service will ensure this beautiful property will slide down the rankings unless someone gives it some much needed TLC.

We knew exactly what to expect on arrival at Rosevears Vineyard Retreat but were really impressed by what we found and wished that we could have stayed longer than 2 nights.

We loved the location - just 10 minutes by car from the Launcestoun cataract; close to supermarkets and bakeries for provisions. The view over the vineyard and Tamar Valleywas tremendous and we found our one-bedroom studio to be clean, tremendously well designed and equipped and quiet excepting for some delightful bird song early in the morning.

Rosevears Vineyard retreat is not a hotel or B & B. It is self-catering with a pretty reasonable kitchenette in each studio and a great many local restarants available. There is the charming and efficient Hayley who acts as the total Reception Staff and the cleaners who do a good job. Having stayed in hotels, lodges and B & B for the previous 8 weeks, we loved the change and recognised the tremendous potential of this Retreat.The large floor to ceiling windows showcased the beauty of the vineyard and River Tamar. The design of the studio was split into lounge, kitchenette, king bed area and bathroom giving it an organised and modern appearance. The balcony was useful as a place to sit, drink a glass of wine and marvel at the scenery.

We used Rosevears as a base to visit Launcestoun; Low Head' Georgetown, Beauty Point, Crasdle Mountain and Dove Lake. And we enjoyed the opportunity to have a wine tasting at the Rosevears Cellar Door.

It is reasonably priced and a good value for money.

We were blown away by the magnificent views when we arrived at our studio apartment! The views of the vineyard and the river was fantastic and really good value for the price we paid for ($150). It was spacious and clean. We stayed in 4 different Locations over 2 weeks in Tasmania and this is by far the best. Apparently the place is up for sale, hopefully the new owners will retain all it's good features or even improve them as we would definitely come back.

Possibly because we had just stayed at another cottage with water views that was way beyond our expectations, our stay at Rosevears was a little luke warm. The cottages are well sited with views out over the Tamar however they are attached to their neighbors - as in each cottage has a common wall with its neighbor - so you are always mindful that you do have close neighbors. When i said they need a little loving, there were light bulbs blown, benches in the kitchen blistered and cracking, tables scratched, chunks out of the external plastering, windows need a clean, grease stains on the balcony, rusted outdoor furniture - it just needs a spruce up to show someone cares. Road noise is a little offensive, shame that they didn't do double glazing. Good shopping for supplies is just minutes away for both grocery and drinking.

Room Tip: The cabins on the eastern side of the complex have the better views however your trade off is the tr...

What a lovely room, with a fantastic view of the vineyard and bay. We arrived late without organizing a late checkin but the friendly staff member Hayley had already organised this so it was a very stress free arrival after a long drive from port Arthur. When we opened the door to go in we were overwhelmed of the location and view. The floor to ceiling windows were just amazing. The only negative comment I could make was there was a bit of the road noise due to the highway being only a stones throw away. Though I would def stay there again. We had dinner at the local rosevears tavern and it was fantastic, great food, great atmosphere and only 7mins from the vinery. Overall it was great!
