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

Had done plenty of research on our yearly holiday, this time to Tassie. (3rd time) risby cove sounded and looked great in the advertising. Single storey pics. No we arrived and were in the Barge a 2 storey non noise insulated tin building. We could hear EVERYTHING above us. It felt like they were staying with us in our very... More

Arrived in Strahan late in the afternoon to find our prepaid accommodation (not Risby Cove) had been double booked. Wasn't too alarmed at first but when we started to call around looking for alternatives we quickly discovered Strahan (and Queenstown & Zeehan) had not one bed left anywhere. On about my twentieth phone call when I explained our dilemma to... More

We really liked this place. Very helpful, friendly staff. The accommodation was nice. Great view. Excellent location. Just a pleasant 5 minute walk along the foreshore to the centre of Strahan. Our only negative feedback would be that the cleaner didn't vacuum the floor each day and that on a couple of nights there was quite a lot of noise... More

The worst aspect first: the lighting is terrible, with switches in difficult spots. Having said that, the staff are helpful, the rooms are beautifully clean snd the bed is comfortable. Unfortunately we are not using the restaurant as we have eaten so much on this holiday that we are simply not hungry! The restaurant is closed tonight. Also, the weather... More

Tried the risotto was absolutely delicious, I could not expect better! The lamb cutlets as main was also good. Price is correct about 55$ entree, main, dessert and a drink. Definetely the best place to eat in Strahan.

Probably the best hotel in Strahan but not a lot on offer. Views were stunning, location excellent and the peace and tranquility lovely. However I would call the facilities a tad rustic. No air conditioning was a concern. We were there on a 27 degree day and it was unbearably hot, as the building was made of tin cladding. Also... More

We stayed recently over New Years at the apartments. We choose the room on the bay called the Boat Shed, it was brilliant. Spotlessly clean, complimentary port and a magic view of the bay right out the front door. Beds were super comfortable and the breakfast was awesome. Look forward to coming back to Tassie soon and will definitely be... More

We stayed in the sawmill cabin overlooking the water. We were checked in by a lovely lady with a warm greeting and she was very helpful for advice. Accommodation was perfect and really got you a feel for the area. They even turned the heater in for us before we got there so the room was cosy. Could stay here... More
