“Relaxation on the Tasmanian West Coast”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

The Crays offers a comfortable and relaxed style of accommodation in a fairly sleepy little fishing village which seems a long way from anywhere- perfect for getting away from it all. We stayed in a studio cabin which was spacious and clean, slightly old fashioned but nice, with a good sized deck looking out toward the bay. The view wasn't quite as good as we expected - the water was only visible across the road and through the trees, and this was not a place for those seeking luxurious appointments, but there were sweet little touches like a vase of flowers in the kitchen, a little jug of milk in the fridge rather then long life milk and a bag of knitting to do if you felt like it. Wendy greeted us in the office with real warmth and friendliness and we were really charmed by the whole experience

From our very first contact we were hooked, by the friendliness and helpfulness of Wendy and Megs. Our unit was brilliant, clean, spacious and everything we could possibly need. The huge bathroom was perfect. It was all so easy for my husband, a paraplegic, we could have stayed indefinitely. We loved Strahan, went on the boat tour [both got off at Sarah Island and the Heritage Walk], and also took a helicopter ride to the top of Mt Jukes. Then back to our lovely comfy unit for drinks on the verandah. Bliss!

What well thought out holiday units. The accommodation was clean, comfortable, spacious with everything we could possibly need or want. The location is quiet, with a bit of a water view from the little verandah. And only a short walk to the Hogarth Falls walking track from People's Park. Overall, simply delightful.

Spent a most enjoyable night in a well appointed and very clean unit with Queen bed (plus 2 singles in seperate bedroom). Nice little balcony to sit and enjoy a drink while looking at the water. Wendy was a delight and so helpful with advice on what to do and the different options available. Also LOVED the crayfish (available at a discount to their guests). Also really appreciated the offer to leave our car under cover the following day, while we were on our cruise of the Gordon River. Would highly recommend these guys.

My husband and I stayed for two nights and were very impressed with the accommodation. It was roomy with homely touches and very clean and tidy. The rooms were good sizes and there was a view of the water from the living room. Located conveniently within a short walk to town in one direction or a very picturesque waterfall trail in the other The Crays ticks a lot of boxes. Add to this laundry facilities and friendly staff and there is not much to fault. We would recommend The Crays and would stay there again if we visit Strahan at another time.

Room Tip: We had a unit on the end with a good view of the water.

Family of 3 stayed here in January while travelling around Tassie. Wendy, in the separate (Waterfront) office was friendly and helpful. Megs (owner) was really helpful on the phone with my enquiries about the area, & accom, prior to our travels. We found the accommodation very clean, tidy, and relaxing, and dotted with homely features such as fresh flowers, and lovely pictures on the wall. This showed me that the owner takes pride in their business. We had a very hot day, followed by a cold, rainy day. All was very comfortable for us.
We used the clean, communal laundry, and were able to buy washing powder from Wendy on check-in. Clothes stand provided in laundry too. Lovely balcony sees a partial view of water from Villa 4. Across road, is Risby Cove, where we had a lovely dinner. We had a car with us, so could buy supplies from the local IGA supermarket. ( A bit far to walk).
No hesitation in recommending the Crays Accommodation, for your stay in Strahan.

Our family of four stayed two nights in the three bedroom house at the Crays Accommodation in Strahan. The accommodation was well appointed with two bedrooms (QS beds) and one bedroom with two singles. The kitchen is also well appointed, although there is no oven.

We loved the Crays. It is a beautiful house. Fresh flowers were a lovely touch (thanks Megs). The house itself was cosy and comfortable, and an easy stroll (~500 metres) to the town centre. Really appreciated the tips about the local sites. We made the most of our time here. We will be back.
