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

We stayed at Risby Cove on our second night in Strahan and it was just lovely. We had been on the World Heritage Cruise (big red one) and can highly recommend them both. Food at Risby Cove restaurant was amazing (make sure you book). Room very warm and cosy, very clean and an amazing view. Our room was upstairs on... 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
