“Picturesque but overpriced”
Reviewed February 29, 2008

The Church was a beautiful building with lovely features such as the stained glass windows and fire but the website stated a price of $200 (and still does) and we were charged $220 when we booked it months ago. I commented to the owner that the website hadn't been updated at the time of booking and have noticed that it still hasn't been updated over 6 months later. This is a beautiful place to stay, especially if you want to be private and cosy but the attitude of the proprietors was not as welcoming as other locations we stayed at in Tasmania.

  • Liked — Appearance of cottage
  • Disliked — Dealing with the booking beforehand
  • Stayed February 2008, traveled as a couple

Our first night in Tasmania was spent in the Sir John cottage, Strahan Colonial Cottages. It is an original cottage split down the centre with the Henty cottage. There are two bedrooms, the Master with a comfy Queen bed and a picturesque bay window with seat overlooking the garden and gully, the second room has two single beds with stuffed toys. Both rooms share the same bathroom. Breakfast provisions are included which consists of a loaf of white bread in the fridge and packets of cereal and opened cornflakes in a jar. A word of caution, we arrived in Strahan a 7.30pm with an empty petrol tank, the petrol station was closed for the night. I had a pleasant walk down hill from the accomodation down to the town. I had tired hungry girls and I justed needed some quick take-away for tea. The fish and chip shop normally only cooks fish and chips 'til 5pm then cooks pizza but as a bike race was on they were stil cooking fish and chips. I placed my order, of course it was mucked up and I have to say it was awful. Strahan itself is a beautiful historic harbour town that is primarily set up for tourism. It is the gateway for the Gordon river cruise and the railway. I thought the accomodation was pleasant but very overpriced.
