Hotel location fantastic. We had a 2 bedroom downstairs and we could hear a lot of walking around noise from the apartment above. Next time I wouldn't get a ground floor. Restaurant was over priced and service ok. Food was suitable but not awesome. Mosquitos everywhere in restaurant and outside. Lots of stagnant water around breeding ground for mozzies. Overall...

We had a room in the fairly new Raft Building, Great room, plenty of space with a kitchenette. Excellent bed! We ate in the hotel restaurant which was good. The hotel is 10 minutes from the centre of town where the ferries and the pub is located.

When we checked into our room we were nicely surprised by the massive living/lounge area, the bathroom (shower on spa bath) the spacious cupboards and room AND Port and Chocolates provided complimentary. We had a bad experience in Hobart before coming in to this hotel, so this was more than what we could ask for. LOVED it. They have a...

Not knowing what to expect of Strahan and Risby Cove, we were delighted with what awaited us - a peaceful wilderness - a beautiful part of Tassie. We took the long, windy and interesting drive from Hobart to Risby Cove, stopping many times to take in the scenery and quaint towns. Our 2 bedroom cottage was upstairs with a balcony...

This was probably an innovative quasi eco place when it was built, but interiors need a face lift and also a new bed. Fortunately, the price was good, below 200. My impression was the food at the restaurant was good as it was busy, although we tried to get something quick in the town (a mistake, not much there). No...

Well! I must say that some of the negative comments on Tripadvisor are simply unbelievable...'had to go and ask for the wifi code' or 'was in much better condition 12 years ago' or 'did not include breakfast - so we had to go to the bakery/grocery store in town'. If one can't look past the odd little blemish then perhaps...

We stayed here as a family in two x 1 bedroom units. 4 adults and 1 X 18 month old. No cooktop but a microwave, sink and bar fridge. Perfect set up for us to enjoy a drink in the balcony each evening once the little one slept. So peaceful. The restaurant was excellent but not a budget option. Hope...

Risby's Cove is located in a quiet corner of Strahan but within easy walking distance of the heart of town. The cabins are not luxurious but very nice. The views from the "boat shed" unit are awesome at all times of the day but particularly at sunset. The food and service in the restaurant are exemplary. I enjoyed my visit...

All went according to plan - great location and view, guarded by the loyal geese and ducks who were constant companions. Very comfortable apartment - boathouse, just across the parking lot from the main buildings. Very quiet location and it was great to look out over the impressive harbour. Only about 2 minutes drive to the railway and river cruise....

We stayed for 2 nights in January - 3 adults. Positives: This was in a superb location, a short walk from the main village of Strahan, overlooking the harbour. Great spot for watching the sun set - beautiful. We were given the upstairs apartment as there was a family with 3 children booked in and felt they were better downstairs....
