Every time my husband and I go out for dinner and it's really nice we normally agree that it is delicious but doesn't quite compare to the meal we had a Risby Cove restaurant last April! I ate the grilled trout which was truly delicious and fresh! The staff were also particularly good.

This place is a dream from the spotless apartment to the friendliest ladies at reception and in the restaurant. Sheilagh answered the phone and took my booking and she is an absolute delight, more so in person. Ree and Lisa on reception were also very helpful. Chris the maintenance man (and boss) was so ready to assist with a small... More

We only stayed 1 night, wished we had more time! We booked a studio queen room but when we checked in we were upgraded to 'The Barge Suite' 2 Bedrooms, large lounge/dining room with kitchenette and bathroom with spa, right on the jetty. Fantastic location!! The room is lovely and clean and warm with heaters in all the rooms. Also... More

We hadnt booked any accommodation when we drove into Strahan, but instantly my eyes were drawn to Risby Cove. Upon entering the old mill which is now a gallery and reception we were met with the most friendliest woman. We wanted to stay 2 nights, which meant we had to change rooms for the 2nd night - but that was... More

My mother, sisters and I had the best time at the beautiful Risby Cove. The accommodation was just gorgeous overlooking the water while we enjoyed our sunset drinks and nibbles! We also enjoyed a beautiful dinner in their restaurant and were given excellent advice by the owner of where to go next! This would have been one of the nicest... More

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.
