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

We stayed on the 5th May in the "Punt room" on the top floor. From the minute we walked in we felt at home. The place is cosy with underfloor heating complimentary port and chocolates. The bed is comfy and the bathroom has everything you need. Unfortunately a storm went through the night we stayed "no fault of theirs" and... More

We stayed two nights in the Boatshed, a self-contained cabin with a living room and a bedroom. The bedroom is smallish, but the lounge area is very spacious. And the view of the cove and harbour? Wow! I sat on the veranda with my sundowner and whatever cares I had just melted away. We had rain the second day, but... More

Risky Cove is a nice property at the end of the cove, within easy walk to the cafes and harbor cruise. There is a nice sidewalk along the waters edge. The enterance is not well signed, but the resturant sign is well visible. The tin roofed buildings look simple on the outside, but are well done inside. We stayed on... More
