We stayed here before going on the yacht up the Gordon River, which is run the same outfit (and is GREAT). The accommodation is clean, comfortable and close to the centre of Strahan. With so many options to choose from, it was good to find one we could trust. As we were only staying one night we didnt need the... More

The Crays are a group of about 4 or 6 "self-contained" cottages. They are clean and spacious and quaint – I think my 82 year old mum did the décore, but heh, Strahan is not downtown New York [or Melbourne]. In terms of cooking facilities and fridge, it is minimalist, but that was not a worry to my wife and... More

It's all been said before - cannot fault the location, the setup & the general ambiance. From the very 1st meeting with Meg - a lovely character, through to our departure 3 days later it was a very enjoyable & relaxing experience. The unit was cosy, very clean & the little touches were delightful. Anyone even contemplating visiting Strahan should... More

Stayed here for 3 days. Very relaxing experience. The unit was cosy, very clean and peaceful. Great touches such as flowers, good hairdryer; nice hot shower post mountain biking. Easy walk to the shops and nice scenic spot.

Spend 2 nights in a self contained studio and cannot fault it. Well equipped with a lovely verandra with glimpses of the cove through the trees. We were cosy and warm having to turn the heating off every now and end as it was so efficient. Would recommend this complex to anyone.

Stayed in 'Kelly' cottage for a couple of nights in October. We liked it as soon as we saw it; it felt like home. Spotlessly clean, very spacious, good heating (a 'must' in this area), a firm but comfortable bed (we slept well), a comfortable cloth fabric lounge suite (I don't like cold leather seats), good shower, separate toilet. Completely... More

Staying at Crays enhanced our visit to Strahan. It was great to have a clean warm inviting cottage, central but set in a private spot. It had many homely comforts (fresh flowers, the heater already on) and lots of hot water. I mentioned to Meg that I preferred a softer bed and within 10 minutes she had added a soft... More

We stayed for four nights and found the accommodation to be very comfortable. The chalet was very well equipped and spacious. The location was excellent - on the level and a 5 minute walk to the local pub (which serves a good dinner - a bit pricey), opposite another restaurant and close to the marina for the excellent Heritage Wilderness...

Stayed at Crays for 3 nights. Very comfortable and spacious cottage.Well equipped except for only a 2 burner hotplate. A full stove would have been preferable and there was plenty of space to accommodate one. The bathroom was very spacious except for the shower recess which had no depth and made it difficult to turn around! Quite puzzled as to... More

I so enjoyed our stay here. Much larger than I expected, we had 2 bedrooms, open kitchen, living room, dining area. Large shower area with lots of counter space and separate toilet which is more convenient when getting dressed and having a couple of people. Kitchen facilities had everything we needed and if something was missing, just call "Meg" and... More
