We stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage with my parents and it was perfect for the 4 of us! Very clean, comfortable and had everything you need in the self contained kitchen. Only a short drive to Strahan Wilderness Railway Station, Gordon River Cruises and restaurants. Great value for money - Highly recommended!

The front office crew are very helpful and offered option of a cottage when cabin turned out to be a bit small for 3 adults. highly recommend the two bedroom cottage. Modern with all amenities. The resort is well located within a few minutes of the main waterfront and the local IGA Store.

We had originally booked a Retreat Cottage 3 Bedroom for our stay in Strahan after being impressed with the reviews and website details. Upon arrival we were checked in to what I would describe as a slightly refurbished 2 bedroom shack adjacent to the main retreat park. Had we not been so tired after a long day of travelling and...

I am very sorry to hear that you had a disappointing stay with us, however as you say we never knew that you were unhappy until now and therefore had no opportunity to rectify any issues. Hopefully you still had a good result from your visit to the town. More

Fantastic 3 nights in this cosy and comfortable cabin. Not having high expectations due to the extremely reasonable price, we were pleased to find the accommodation well located, comfortable and clean. Very appropriate for a family more intent on adventuring than luxuriating indoors.

The place was easy to find and the receptionist was friendly and helpful. The room was a new renovation and the setting was great. Seeing the Platypus was a bonus. A big property with nice walks. Would certainly recommend
