We stayed in unit 2 (I think) on 16/03/2009 & 17/03/2009.

I have no complaints at all, our unit had two bedrooms with a kitchen, lounge and bathroom. It was within walking distance (10 minutes) of the restaurants and shops.

I was more than happy to stay here, especially since it seems to be one of only a few places in town not owned by The Federal Group. Not that I'm against the Federal Group, I just like to support small business too.

The room was described to us as having "a lovely view down to the harbor". When we arrived we headed to the house on the front of the property that looked like it would enjoy such an outlook, only to realize that the accommodation was at the back of the block. There was no view to speak of other than the back yard and a glimpse of the sea through the trees.

The room was large, reasonably well equipped and pleasant enough, however at AUD $190 a night we encountered a much higher standard elsewhere for the same price. This was B&B style accommodation (and price) but without the Breakfast. Strahan is expensive and books early so maybe this is just market rate.

The host was friendly and helpful and we have no problem recommending the place so long as your expectations are not too high. Units are fully equipped. Consider buying a Crayfish ($5 discount) from Megs (the owner) as this is about half the price you can pay elsewhere.

We stopped here for 3 nights wish it was longer,Megs made us very welcome and her 2 bedroom apartment was lovely.Full kitchen,lounge ,dining area,bathroom(very large) with sep wc and the most peaceful back courtyard overlooking Macquarie Harbour to have those evening drinks. It was very close to the main township and supermarket 1 block away.If you visit Strahan do not miss doing the west coast wilderness railway trip it is the ride you will never forget,also the gordon river cruise isamazing. , Megs husband also has a large boat to do cruises on . All in all Strahan is well worth the 5hr drive from Hobart but do yourself a favour and stop at the Crays.
