Stayed for 2nights (inc staying over on Australia Day) during a 9 day tour of Tasmania. Strahan is a few hours drive from the Cradle Mountain area. Upon arrival i was very warmly welcomed by the owner Caroline who had muffins and tean and coffee ready in my very cozy and charming room. I stayed in Amelia suite - which was charming lots of room. Caroline gave excellent tips for eating options in Strahan and also made my booking for the Gordon River wilderness cruise. Breakfast each morning were great - nice selection of juices, cereals and breads. I only eat continental breakfast so this suited me perfectly. Upon leaving, i got a great information sheet about places to stop and see on my drive to Hobart (other guests got similair ones for their different destinations). Caroline also gave out more muffins for your journey - perfect! There is a museum in the top floor of the house which houses information on the history as well as computer with internet for a small fee. A great friendly house to stay in during a tour of Tassie and you are made to feel one of the family.
