“Clean and Comfortable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

Stayed in room 2. Was clean and comfortable.

The room was attached to the caretakers residence/reception and could hear noises through the wall.

Room has good amenities. No cable TV and TV stations limited to analogue.

Room Tip: Suggest staying on one of the rooms/cabins behind the front building containing reception.

Thankyou for your comments, and making us aware of audible noises, from adjoining room in that particular unit . Further improvements to the soundproofing will be on our "to do list". In regards to TV limitations, Strahan is hopeful of getting the digital network online in 2013.

Great value modern 2 bed villas in quite area. Good heating, no aircon though if you were visiting in warm weather. Large en suite. Well insulated from cold and also noise. Friendly owners and also the resident Border collie will convince you to play ball with him. Highly recommended.

PS We stayed in No. 6 as well as RJAW. and there are ducks next door however the fence is a 2m high metal fence, so we didn't have a problem with them quacking in the morning and the bedroom is not near the fence either. No different to the wild birds singing each morning as the sun comes up.

Room Tip: All villas appear to be quite new.

We were very lucky to be accommodated in the new and spacious 2 bedroomed chalet. It was superbly equipped and very comfortable. There was no noise on either night. We found the owners very friendly and helpful. We also had free wifi from the reception area.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the two new chalets

Roosters, ducks and chickens to the right, extremely loud party across the road with excessively loud music and screeching, owners not on site and the best that they can offer is that it doesn't happen regularly. Look at the other reviews and make up your own mind.

I wish that we had paid closer attention to the reviews before booking.

FYI we were in no. 6 which is half way down the property. In my view avoid and look elsewhere.

We stayed for one night in Driftwood Strahan Villas. It was good value for money (we paid $125). Villa 1 had kitchen, lounge, dining in one large room seperated from bedroom and ensuite (which had wheelchair access). The queen size bed was very comfortable & good quality linen was used. The decor was tasteful. Overall I was happy to have stayed there.

Room Tip: Villa 1 is on street level whereas the other Villas are down a driveway on the property. Other revie...

Our family of 6 stayed in one of the Driftwood Villas during our recent visit to Strahan. We were delighted with the very high standard of accommodation that we had selected. It was spotlessly clean, well maintained and in a convenient location that allowed us to leave our car in off street parking for our entire visit of the area. We were able to recycle .... even our vegie and fruit scraps which were fed to the worms. The kitchen facilities enabled us to self-cater for the 3 nights we stayed with a supermarket a very short walk from Driftwood Villas. A perfect base to rest our heads while exploring this amazing part of Tasmania. Thank you very much.

This place would have to be one of the cleanest places i've ever been too. Well maintained well presented, friendly and helpfull. If you go you MUST do the river cruise on the "Eagle". Never mind the "Lady jane" as there not a local company. The staff at Driftwood will book this for you.
