We came in the middle of a cold winter and considered off-season. We got excellent service nevertheless. My partner remarked that he has the warmest and most convenient room for us ready and that the whole cabin was warmed up and cozy by the time we arrive. There were heaters too for the towels. I spent a fine afternoon looking... More

We had a Queen Studio for a night. Even though the weather wasn't good, we were warmly welcomed by the receptionist and explained many things about the hotel, the sights, things to do, etc. We had dinner in the restaurant of the property. Food was great, but quite expensive in terms of its portion. The room was comfortable with a... More

We stayed a few nights at Risby Cove in early July and found it to be very relaxing and easy. The room was very clean with a great view out over the water. Easy walk into town and the restaurant down stairs made for absolute simplicity which was exactly what we wanted. The staff were all very friendly and helpful... More

We had a 2 bedroom apartment, with uninterrupted harbour view, very warm oasis in the middle of winter. Complete with electric blankets, warmed towel racks, complimentary port and chocolates, friendly, efficient after hours check-in. Very comfortable lounge, and walking distance to boat cruise departure.

The location was excellent , with great views looking out over the bay. Staff were friendly and obliging. The room was very good , except for the Queen bed which tendered to roll us into the center, making for a broken sleep. Reported to be an excellent restaurant, with good menu and prices, but unfortunately we were unable to try... More

Let me preface the review by saying we had some pretty wild weather while we were in Strahan. We stayed at Risby Cove for two nights. It's in a good spot about halfway between the town centre and the historic ABT railway. We had one of the cabins on the water this was a bit problematic with the wild weather.... More

What a neat property. It looks like something out of a bygone era, but actually it is very comfortable. We stayed here for 2 nights while doing a day in Strahan. It is cute. Has an awesome view over this quaint little fishing village. Watching the lights and the boats is relaxing. The rooms were adequate, not the Ritz Carlton,... More

I stayed one night at Risby Cove in the boatshed on a photo tour round Tasmania. The room is across from the main accommodation building with great views down the water and though the bedroom was snug, the lounge was spacious and the complimentary port helped me get a good night's sleep! The big surprise was the restaurant, the space... More
