Second visit, love Strahan, and wouldn't stay anywhere but Risby.... close to the town, lovely restaurant, great cabins...... don't forget to say hello to the ducks. If you want up market 5 star, well Strahan isn't for you....... if you want a wonderful nature experience go to Strahan, and stay at Risby Cove.

This was just a really nice place to stay. It was rustic & that added to it's charm. The views back across to Strahan across the Harbor were great and the Geese met you as you arrive. We had dinner in the restaurant which was good. Not fantastic food & perhaps a little pricey for what it was but i... More

We dined at the restaurant tonight and it was delightful. Service was excellent and the view from our table was stunning. Ducks, geese, fairy lights on the water ....lovely. The menu is exciting and true to description. Fish was fresh and beautifully cooked. Thank you ...whoops forgot to add, damper as light as a ceather.

The facilities were all you need for a short stay ie: comfortable living room/diner with kitchen facilities. It was their winter so the restaurant was closed for annual deep cleaning. This had disappointed a few others, so the place was plainly a popular venue when open. We had to resort to other restaurants and the small nearly out of town... More

Pole checked us in and served us at dinner, such a lovely young man, nothing too much trouble. Thank you Pole. Room clean, however one bed was very uncomfortable but on checking out the Receptionist did say she would have it checked. Again no trouble. Ducks came up to see us this morning.

This hotel has a unique style, built in corrugated steel it looks cool. The rooms are very nice and large, you have your own terrace and kitchen. Tje hotel also has a very good restaurant, no need to walk to the citycenter. Make a reseravtion.

Ratings of accomodation and restaurant all mixed togather. This is about accomodation. It was lovely. Grounds nice. Short of being on a boat could not be closer to water. Suite was spacious and we'll appointed. Clean and a bottle of port for a chilly evening set on the veranda. Housekeeping was very flexible. Strongly recommend booking. If no budget ocean... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the B&B we were staying at in Strahan, and we were not disappointed. We had made a reservation and w're lucky enough to get a table by the window, overlooking the water (beautiful sunsets there!). We had lamb which was cooked perfectly and was so tasty and tender. The whole meal and service was... More
