Room was fine as was the view but compared to others in the area the rooms are about $60.00 too much as although it is OK the they are a bit rustic. Quiet location, close to town centre. Two of the rooms were lined out tin sheds but done correctly, as I said rustic.

The rooms were cosy and well maintained. It's just a short walk to restaurants and you can't fault the view. The geese and ducks waddled up to the porch and were simply adorable. The rooms are suitable for families with young children.

Friendly, welcoming service. Spotlessly clean room (newly renovated) with extra touches like chocolates, port, free laundry use, wi-fi included. Fantastic views (we were in jetty suite), warm and comfortable. Great parking and walk to everything in Strahan. Could not fault the accommodation at all. Thanks for the unexpected upgrade to the suite! The restaurant was good but sadly closed after... More

I stay at Risby Cove at least twice a year as I visit the area for work and really can't fault it. Superb views, fantastic spacious rooms and great food. I have just heard that the restaurant has closed down and what a huge loss to the township of Strahan. I have had so many excellent meals there, both for... More

The room didn't have as good a view I was expecting - tucked in the corner, just after the restaurant, has 3 people try to get in while we were there (thinking it was part of the restaurant). Door had no lock on the inside - had to somehow lock it from the oytside, don't remember how, but it wasn't... More

We retruned to Strahan for our 30th wedding anniversary having been there for our honeymoon. The town has really declined in that time - quite sad. It is such a pretty area. The hotel was very nice and our room was excellent right on the water's edge. It was very clean and tidy and warm. We had booked lobster for... More

We arrived in Strahan from the north coast and were met by a very friendly receptionist who got us sorted. She then proceeded to show us the local area on a map and point out things of interest. We were informed of the limited menu at the restaurant but decided to go with it anyway. Unfortunately the seafood platter for... More

when I booked by phone I was told there was a 'limited menu' that evening and asked if that was okay. Was fine with me so along we went. The booking had gone astray and the poor waitress informed us the chef had given them half a day's notice that he was taking the evening off because he hadn't had... More
