“Very nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights in unit 4. It consisted of 2 bedrooms, living area and a kitchen/dining area.
Had a nice view across the road to Risby Cove. It's about a 5-10 minute walk in to town along a flat pathway. And it's right across the road from Risby Cove Restaurant (which was a big consideration when we booked it)
No free wifi :( They do have a plan you can sign up for. Prices were (from memory) $7.50 for 1 hour $12.50 for 2 hours $25 for 24 hours used over 2 days 500mb. Speeds were ok (for west tassie)
Overall a very nice place to stay.
Recommended.

We stayed at the Crays for 2 nights in the 2 bedroom Kelly unit. Staff friendly and unit very clean and comfortable. No oven but good BBQ. Convenient for town and cruises and nice walk around the esplanade.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa with a view through the bushes to the water. The villa was very well appointed with large comfortable bedrooms, separate toilet and spacious bathroom and open plan kitchen, dining and sitting area. The car port was under cover and the front verandah was sheltered with comfortable chairs and large table. There were nice homely touches like fresh flowers on the table and a jug of milk in the fridge. The heating was was very efficient and the beds had electric blankets. We had a most enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Villa 1 is in the corner and you can see the water through the bushes from the front verandah

We found these cabins very spacious and lots of little personal touches which made it feel very homely. Plenty of heating and excellent covered car accommodation right at your cabin. A nice walk to the restaurants too.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

We stayed here at the beginning of November for three nights, a comfortable villa with a view of the sea through the trees. Quiet clean and comfortable two bedrooms, open plan kitchen lounge area with cooking facilities. Bathroom had an electric wall heater, shower was a bit on the small side but comfortable enough. Verandah which would have been lovely to sit out on if the weather had been kind enough. Ample heating provided and electric blankets. Fresh flowers in the villa gave the place a touch of home. Covered parking beside villa. A comfortable walk in to the harbour front and shops or a two minute drive, Megs [the owner] and Wendy in the office were both extremely helpful both before and during our stay and pre booked our Gordon River cruise for us. I will definitely stay here again. I have attached photos but the rooms are bigger than they are pictured.

Room Tip: Unit 4 has the sea view.

We stayed two nights at The Crays and the place was lovely. We stayed in villa 5 and were able to sit out on the verandah in the arvo and admire the view of risby cove. The heating was ample, which is well needed and the beds have electric blankets. Absolutely loved it!!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

Our group of 8 adults and 2 children had a 3 bedroom and 2 studios, all were delighted with their accommodation. The smallest of details were provided including rubber gloves, vase of fresh flowers, jug of fresh milk waiting for that first cuppa! Despite wet weather we were able to make use of the BBQ area, appreciating the provided spray oil and cleaning equipment. Heating was super efficient, the lowest setting was almost too high and electric blankets added to the comfort. The bathroom was very spacious, no banging elbows on walls while drying and the 3 bedroom unit also had a bath, perfect for the little ones in the family! Easy, pleasant walk to the village and surrounds. Very quiet, couldn't hear noise from adjoining units. Carport appreciated and also the hose for cleaning off cars after a day of sightseeing.
