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.

We stayed two nights along the edge of the harbor in "downtown" Strahan - not really downtown since it is a very small village. If it the weather had been warmer and less windy we would have enjoyed sitting on the porch of our little apartment to watch the sun set but it was a bit brisk! Our travel companions...

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...
