Our 2 weeks in Tasmania were wonderful ! (As were another 2 weeks on the mainland) Friendly , helpful people , good food , excellent accommodation and of course , the ever-changing vistas of the island itself . The only place that we stayed that we felt deserved less than 5 stars was Risby Cove . Not to say it...

My wife and I and our twin boys spent a very pleasant three nights at Risby Cove. The location was second to none with our room opening right on the water so the boys could feed the ducks from the deck each morning and night. It is also within walking distance of the marina for boat cruises and the station...

Visited Risby Cove with a group of friends back in March 2017. What a wonderful experience! Accommodation was in one of the upstairs apartments and had an amazing view over the water. The room itself was really comfortable with every conceivable extra included. The bed was so comfortable with plenty of room for suitcases (extra bed included!). The restaurant food...

This time, the picture does not tell a thousand words. After a rather grueling road trip from Hobart we were looking forward to a tranquil retreat for 2 nights. It didn't happen. Reception was indifferent. We then drove up on blue metal to the rear of our tin shed (guest parking) dragging our bags to the door. The front is...

Best meal in our 10 days travelling around Tasmania. Wonderful seafood and friends enjoyed the pork cutlet. Setting perfect and staff very helpful. Food was well presented and no long waiting times. Dessert menu looked most inviting but previous courses did not leave room. Thanks to chef and staff from 4 visiting NZers

We have stayed at Risby before. But now it has gone downhill. Main difference is the Indifference of management. Attention to detail has fallen off. Customer service all but gone. If you do stay here, pick the upstairs unit near waterfront.

We made a booking for 8 people (for the March long weekend) some time ago only to be very recently advised our booking had been cancelled because a larger group had been booked in. We found other accomodation in Strahan and we had a great time, but cancelling a group's booking is poor form indeed!
