“Affordable accommodation in Strahan”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

If you're doing the West Coast on a budget then it's hard to find affordable accommodation in Strahan . We rented a budget family cabin on Wotif for $130. I think that's still pretty pricey for caravan park accommodation but the cabin suited our needs. The mattress on the double bed had seen better days so my husband slept in one of the bunks and the door to the toilet was off its hinges.
The park has a bottle shop & take away/ grocery right out the front which is handy. We had our bikes with us so the short trip into town was very pleasant along the shared walk way.

great if you like a bit of a walk into town, 15 minutes either via water or main road. Water is only 3 minutes walk, great beach, ideal for picnic lunch or dinner.

Bedrooms are a bit small, we had to leave our luggage n lounge. Kitchen and lounge are very generous. Very clean and well maintained. We had trouble with the internet here.

Room Tip: Our room was on the road but still was very quiet

Uppreciated the gravel site (very good with all that rain) and the shop and atm facilities but amenities although well located and good in size do need to be revamped. Location is good but a kilometer away from main streep with no transportation available in the city. Keep it in mind if you cannot walk much. All in all a good experience.

This caravan park is in an ideal spot. It's a lovely easy walk along the path into strahan village. Toilets and showers are average and could do with updating. But staff are friendly and helpful. The cafe is great for meals and drinks and for the morning newspaper.

Chosen because it had far more positive reviews than bad ones, and this is another pos one. The cabin was spotlessly clean and well equipped, though we stayed only one night so the shower and the kettle were all we used really - oh, and the electric blanket on the QS bed which made the very comfy bed easy to get into on a very chilly night! Big flat TV, good for the size of room, not many channels but what there was had clear picture. The bathroom was actually quite spacious (maybe some other cabins have a smaller area?), and it's a good strong shower. Local shop/long-hours café/booze shop just across the road, so very convenient - but the reception is there too rather than on-site, which is a bit strange, but we found it okay. Only downside we could pick is that the cabins are really close together and there's nowhere private to sit outside, but at least they all face the same way so your kitchen looks out on next door's car, but your own entry is next to your own car. Obviously that cannot change. Bit claustrophobic during the daylight but once closed up for the night you don't notice - and it's also quiet and peaceful after dark. Would definitely stay again.

We arrived late , fortunately the office was open until 7pm. The cabin was well appointed - 2 bedrooms for 2 people. It will accommodate 6 - one bedroom has a double bed and 2 bunk beds. Would be ok for 4 - 6 would be tight. Shower is small fibreglass cubicle - understandable when one realises it would have been transported over a v winding road. Heating, clothes airer, equipped kitchen, flat screen tv, small fridge with freezer, laundry is shared. Supermarket around the corner, short walk to a small beach. No wifi - something to do with the manager's house burning down. Bottle shop and take awat food across the road. A bit pricey for a cabin in a caravan park but there doesn't appear to be much competition.

Stayed for one night in an Executive Cabin (number 16) with my mum. Check in was an easy process. I don't know what the standard cabins are like, so I can't compare, but to me the cabin we were in was just basic. It did have a very well equipped kitchen which was appreciated to cook a meal in, and the water in the shower was lovely and hot and had good pressure. Unfortunately I didn't find the lounge or beds comfortable (tried both bottom and top bunk) but Mum was comfortable in her double bed in the other room. I probably would stay elsewhere next time I go to Strahan, but I can see how it would be a good place and affordable for families. It was a very hot day in Strahan when we were there and the cabin was very hot inside, but unfortunately the cabin had no screen door so we couldn't let the cooler evening air in.
