Risby Cove is superbly located with magnificient water views and comfortable accommodation. Sitting on a verandah overlooking Risby Cove on Macquarie Harbour with the sun setting over Strahan is a lovely memory. The two bedroom room was well appointed, modern and clean. The restaurant is first class with an interesting menu that offers a different dining experience.

Stayed 1 night recently with my husband during our trip to Tasmania. We stayed in an upstairs room overlooking the water. The position is amazing...so peaceful. The room was a bit dated, but very clean and well maintained. We also enjoyed our meal at the restaurant.

2 nights with great views of bay. Pleasantly surprised with quality of restaurant meals...new chef and new menu...Better than Peppers at Cradle Mt! Young waitresses appreciated positive support with changes....tolerance and non judgement boosts staff self esteem with better service outcomes....highly recommend

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed it. The place was clean and the room was fully equipped, overlooking the water. It is conveniently located within walking distance of both the Gordon River Cruise departure point, as well as the Wilderness Railway train station. I left my sunglasses in the room when I checked out and was on the...

Warm and comfortable with excellent location. Unfortunately the restaurant is closed on a Monday night and being off season we found it very difficult to get food in Strahan that evening. Only place open was the small pub which really couldn't cater for the hungry tourists. Risky Cove itself was lovely and I wouldn't hesitate to book in again although...

We came in the middle of a cold winter and considered off-season. We got excellent service nevertheless. My partner remarked that he has the warmest and most convenient room for us ready and that the whole cabin was warmed up and cozy by the time we arrive. There were heaters too for the towels. I spent a fine afternoon looking...

We had a Queen Studio for a night. Even though the weather wasn't good, we were warmly welcomed by the receptionist and explained many things about the hotel, the sights, things to do, etc. We had dinner in the restaurant of the property. Food was great, but quite expensive in terms of its portion. The room was comfortable with a...
