Risby's Cove is located in a quiet corner of Strahan but within easy walking distance of the heart of town. The cabins are not luxurious but very nice. The views from the "boat shed" unit are awesome at all times of the day but particularly at sunset. The food and service in the restaurant are exemplary. I enjoyed my visit... More

All went according to plan - great location and view, guarded by the loyal geese and ducks who were constant companions. Very comfortable apartment - boathouse, just across the parking lot from the main buildings. Very quiet location and it was great to look out over the impressive harbour. Only about 2 minutes drive to the railway and river cruise.... More

We stayed for 2 nights in January - 3 adults. Positives: This was in a superb location, a short walk from the main village of Strahan, overlooking the harbour. Great spot for watching the sun set - beautiful. We were given the upstairs apartment as there was a family with 3 children booked in and felt they were better downstairs.... More

Had a lovely few days here in a spacious one bedroom suite with sea view. Large bedroom, sitting room with kitchenette tucked round the corner, and large bathroom all made for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The Dolphins were an unexpected added feature! The layout means you don't have a private balcony, but that was not a problem for us.... More

I booked the room with the impression from email correspondence that the room would be above the restaurant looking out to the water. Instead after arriving late after a long drive to find the room was part of a new block of tin rooms facing the carpark and restaurant with the choice of either no privacy or a glimpse of... More

On arrival a first impression was of a tired utilitarian hotel with a washed out distressed exterior. But looks can be deceiving. We were given a warm welcome in a beautifully appointed reception area where local artists and craftsmen display their works. The staff were all very friendly and hard working and haven eaten in the restaurant for both evenings... More

I had stayed at Risby Cove 12 years ago and it was certainly in a much better condition then to what it is now. The location in the cove about 8 minutes walk from Strahan is nice but the rooms have become quite dated and the entire site needs a freshen up - some repairs, painting and general maintenance is...

We only stayed overnight, but staff were friendly, room was great and the position, just metres from the water, was excellent. Close enough to town and attractions to walk. A little pricey, but worth every cent.

Service was slow, waitresses and waiter were clumsy. We had to wait over 20 minutes before we were asked if we wanted a drink and then still had to wait 10 minutes before they came, one of witch was the wrong one. I cannot fault the meals, great presentation and tasted beautiful. All in all, service was the big let... More
