Stayed upstairs in Beach room for 2 nights. No aircon, understandable here, but screen-door lock missing so no chance to leave main door open for cool breeze. Tap drips in bathroom, shower wand socket broken. Feels like a maintenance person has never been near the place. Bathroom has basin on one wall but mirror and light on opposite wall so...

Restaurant was very good, but accomodation needs maintenance. Non functioning lights, water leaks, noisy neighbouring unit (above). Very average bathroom (shower curtain...) and bed. Manager tres blasé.

With beautiful buildings and surrounds, this should be an excellent restaurant. Sadly, disappointingly, it isn't. The service is in slow motion, as in 15 to 20 minutes for drink service, and not owing to lack of people, just a very casual attitude. Also, despite the menu and promo stating "fresh seafood"(and its a fishing port, trawlers, the lot) the fish...

Had a lovely view from our upstairs apartment overlooking the water. The accommodation is simple and rustic, it suited us for our two night stay. We had dinner in the restaurant the first night but didn't enjoy much so went elsewhere the next night. The main reason to stop over in Strahan was to go on the Gordon River cruise...

The restaurant was recommended by a local and it was an excellent suggestion. A bit noisy as it was very popular but the food was good, well-presented and the service was friendly and speedy! A great setting at sunset. We didn't stay at the hotel so we can't say anything more than the location and the parking are very good.

Rustic, cozy lodge with very friendly service and nice views of the lake. We had a wonderful dinner in the restaurant, such a great selection considering the small size of the kitchen! Our breakfast was also delicious, make sure you try the eggs benedict, super!! My only criticism of the property is that there is no lounge area to sit,...

Nice location on the water, and only a short 5 minute walk to town. Not a lot to do in Strahan but great hub for the Gordon river cruise. The rooms we stayed in were brand new and very modern. Comfortable beds and an amazing rain shower head! I loved the bathroom!Very comfortable and nice and modern.

We stay in Risby Cove for 2 nights on our tour of Tasmania. No hotels in a beautiful sleepy town like Strahan are going to be like large capital city Hilton for example, but its was a lovely little hotel. We stayed in the cottages. Well pointed, slightly on the small side, but perfect for our 2 night stay. Didn't...
