We stayed here 2 nights over Christmas last year. The place is hard to fault. We booked a larger room and it completely met our expectations. The lady who runs the B&B is very helpful and charming, got great tips about People's park, for example. There is also a good restaurant. Very charming little place and I would definitely stay...

We stayed two nights at Risby Cove in early August 2014. We had an upstairs suite (more like a small apartment) overlooking the cove and Macquarie Harbour beyond. The suite was extremely comfortable with nice leather armchairs, kitchenette and lots of wood panelling. Two TVs and free wifi. To top it off there were complimentary chocolates and a decanter of...

Spent two nights in the Sawmill cabin toward the end of July, and would highly recommend this as a place to stay in Strahan. The location was extremely peaceful, with beautiful waterfront views across the Harbour. Our host Sheilagh was very helpful with tips on things to do around the area, and was also lovely to have a chat to.... More

We stayed one night at this delightful place. We had a very nice and clean unit in a great position with views out over the water. Unit was warm and comfortable and came with a complimentary decanter of port! Restaurant was good too. Staff were friendly and we enjoyed our short stay.

My friends and I had a really wonderful stay here. We had a lovely 2 bedroom spa suite right on the water's edge and woke up to the most amazing views with mirror like water complete with resident ducks. The apartment was lovely and clean and well equipped. Complimentary decanter of port and chocolates were very welcome after a long... More

We enjoyed our time at Risby Cove after our stay in adjoining cabins by the lake. We received a warm greeting. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom spacious and clean. The lake serene, and so still, contrasted with the freshly mown grass by the cabins, it could have been a postcard scene. We were most delighted by the presence of... More

This is a return visit, we managed to get the same room as the last stay and its just as good. Staff are exceptional, Risby Cove is in great location without being in the middle of town . The rooms have a wonderful views across the water to the town area, and there is a lovely short walk along the... More

We had a unit right on the water front with an amazing view back into town. I don't think you could stay in a better location in Strahan. Only a short walk, about 10 minutes into town. But very quite and relaxing. It was Winter so there weren't many people around and the restaurant looked empty a few nights. We... More

We stayed 1 night at 2014/05/26, the look outside is "old". But inside very clean and warm. The restaurant also very good. All the staff are very nice. Only 2 mins drive to the ferry port, where you can take the ship to Gordon River, Hell Gate. But there are only staff available from 0900, so if you check-out earlier... More

We stayed at The Jetty which was a two bedroom apartment with a fully stocked kitchenette. As it was upstairs it was very private and had a magical view over the water. The furnishings, carpet and all kitchen utensils were new and very clean. Sadly the bed was old and uncomfortable, I hate criticizing this place as we really enjoyed... More
