Strahan was our favourite place in Tasmania. The Cove was away from the main centre of town so in a quiet location, but an easy five minute walk to get to the centre where the Gordon River boat leaves. This cruise is a must. Staff were all fabulous. Our room, the Beach, was over the restaurant so a little noisy.... More

No more than a 5 min walk to central Strahan with the advantage of being "out of the very centre". Beautifully located right on the water with magnificent views across the harbour. Great staff. We had a nice ground floor room that was a little dark and unfortunately very noisy at night from the room above us. The restaurant food... More

Stayed here for one night during a photo workshop trip in Tasmania. Had a fabulous 'suite' with bedroom, ensuite, lounge/kitchen. The downstairs suite faced the water with a super view of the sunset and the friendly ducks on the lawn in front. The owner was very welcoming and ensured that everything was in order. The rooms and facilities were spotless... More

Very comfortable rooms with small well equipped kitchen Lovely views out across the harbour and a very good restaurant made this a great location for our stay in Strahan. The staff are delightful and helpful and made good suggestions and bookings for us.. New carpet and blinds have been recently installed,and the rooms were very clean. Would strongly recommend.

We recently stayed at Risby Cove and what a delightful discovery. This boutique hotel overlooks the water and is set in a tranquil spot. The room was lovely, complete with kitchenette and complimentary Port and a balcony to sit out on and soak up the view. We ate at the restaurant there and had a superb meal ,waited on by... More

We stayed at Risby Cove over the long weekend in March 2014. The room was gorgeous (waterfront), the bed was beautifully comfortable, the staff were so friendly and accommodating and our time there was wonderful. Couldn't fault it and would recommend Risby Cove to anyone.

We drove up late afternoon and were offered a nice discount (it was the winter and low season) on a one-bedroom suite directly overlooking the water. Nicely furnished, very spacious, balcony. Lovely location, walking distance to just about everything in town. Great views over the water. Lovely owners. Wifi in the rooms. I'm giving a 4 for value: the discount... More

We enjoyed our stay at Risby Cove and particularly because the room we had was upstairs at the front, which I believe is called "The Jetty" suite, and had expansive and uninterrupted views of the very picturesque bay. The view at sunset and again at sunrise was spectacular. Our friends had a different room which didn't have views and they... More

We stayed in the sawmill room which was one of two units near the water about 50 meters from the main complex , I believe they were spa units. The room had fantastic views of the bay and a Verandah to enjoy the surprisingly warm and sunny weather . There was a good lounge room if the weather wasn't as... More

Risby Cove in Strahan, was our first stop and was so great that is spoiled the rest of our trip, as we didn't want to leave and longed to be back there, everywhere else we went! From the... More
