Sphere is such a lovely host. She couldn't do enough for us. The bungalows are of generous size, clean, crisp and well appointed. All amenities in the kitchen and the rooms are of a generous size. Great for families or a couple like us. We will go back again.

Room Tip: Where will do all your bookings, excellent service.

These bungalows won the Tourism People's Choice Awards for 2012. No wonder! The owner, Sheree, could not have helped us any more if she tried, such a friendly person and so well suited to her role. We spent two nights in the Bungalows and loved every minute. Spotlessly clean, well equipped, modern, tastefully decorated and attention to detail all added up to a most enjoyable couple of days.

Strahan Bungalows is a fairly new establishment and this is reflected in the units being fresh and new, with all equipment and facilities attractive and working. Modern colours and a bit of timber also make the units very attractive. At first glance, everything is great, and worthy of an "excellent" rating but a few niggles prevent such a rating. On the plus side, besides the attractiveness, checkin was fast and friendly and the unit was as advertised; the beds were comfortable and the unit was spotlessly clean. The niggles included the pillows being very thin and uncomfortable, lack of an oven, towels small, smoke detector going off even when we put the toaster exactly where told and had the rangehood on full; and traffic noise that started at 5am and woke us up. Still, oveall a good place to stay and is recommended unless you are a light sleeper.

Thank you for your feedback. We hope you enjoyed your stay with us and sorry we didn't meet all your needs positively. We are onto the pillow situation by purchasing different types. In regards to an oven, we can only address that when renovations are required but we will definitely consider it then. We didn't realise the towels are small. We purchased them as regular towels not bath sheets. Maybe an option would be to have a combination of both, something else we will consider. We are sorry about the smoke detectors they are very sensitive and we have had the electrician look at them. We are sorry you were disturbed by traffic noise. The windows are all double glazed, by closing them blocks out heat, cold, noise etc. That may be a way of us helping to address it. We don't usually hear any noise so we do apologize to you. We want our guests to have the best stay we can provide. Again we appreciate your feedback and we hope you enjoyed your holidays.

Stayed here for three nights in Feb 2013. Very friendly and welcoming proprietors. The apartment was everything that we needed and more (Hell's Gates). Spacious, clean and well equipped. We had arranged to have a Gordon River Cruise included in the booking, voucher was ready for us and it was no fuss. Parking available directly outside unit. Laundry facilities available at rear of property ($2 per wash). Dryer was out of order during our stay but a clothes airer was in the room so managed to get all the washing dry. Walkable distance to waterfront and also to IGA supermarket on main entrance road. Loved our stay here. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

We are so pleased your stay in our "Hells'Gates" bungalow was enjoyable. You have given us a great review and we appreciate it so much, thank you. We are happy that we have been able to show off our part of the world to you, we love it so much. We apologize about the dryer, all up and going again now, sorry for the inconvenience. Hope you arrived home safely from your holiday, thank you again.
(We are a local family, hence the bungalow named after the entrance to our harbour here, "Hell's Gates".)

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit, the King River, which was clean, neat and came with a wide kitchen countertop that ran the length of the corridor. The town centre and supermarket are just 1-2 minutes drives away. The shower/washroom was fantastic -- I didn't want to step out from under the shower spray. Will DEFINITELY stay here again if I ever return to Strahan.

Clean, comfortable motel style accommodation. Spacious, clean with the best shower we came across in Tasmania. There was some traffic noise as the bungalows are situated at a cross roads and this was a bit tiresome first thing in the morning. Complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits provided. The bungalow was not serviced during our stay but this didn't worry us at all. Laundry available at a very reasonable cost. Very pleasant welcome.
