“Incredible Views!”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

The most beautiful view from the Shed that i stayed in! Although it was just 2 nights, the stay was comfortable. The shed was warm, detached from the main building so i had the mini deck to soak in the sun ( the little time that i had) or the rain..... it was on and off! The shed was spacious with a mini bar, coffee/tea making facilities, WIFI and a cozy bed. The breakfast was more than adequate and delicious. Bathroom amenities were adequate and with a complimentary bottle of Sherry, what more could one ask for to spend the evening with a few friends? The place exceeded my expectations and i would definitely love to go back and stay there again. I had some unexpected visitors early in the morning as well...... quack quack!

Room Tip: Try the Shed.... Aloof, quiet and a fantastic unhindered view of the cove and the harbor.

We chose Strahan as a quiet few days amongst a tight schedule driving holiday. We had the top floor over looking the harbour. We were made to feel very welcome by the staff who were wonderful and friendly.
The view from the window was just breathtaking. The accommodation was large and warm with a spa bath. The free laundry facilities were shared and can be used by guests after 3pm. Hogarth falls was in walking distance as was the main town centre. We were happy to lounge around and take in the view which was useful as Strahan is a sleepy town with little happening especially on a Sunday although you can take jet boat rides from the accommodation and book in with the cruises. The accommodation has a microwave, fridge and sink however, there is a onsite restaurant. I would thoroughly recommend this place for families with older children.

We only stayed one night in the "Jetty" which is a two bedroom accommodation. The Jetty is a second storey unit with a little deck and a fabulous outlook across the cove. Is was spacious, with two comfy couches and very clean.
We ate dinner in the restaurant and had a great meal. Would definitely stay again and recommend this place to others.
Short walk to the town centre. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We arrived in the pouring rain to be greeted by a friendly and cheerful host who offered us an umbrella during our check-in which we found very thoughtful.
Room had a great view, was spacious, and was very warm and snug which was welcomed on such a chilly day. It certainly met our expectations.Restaurant was directly beneath us however we wernt affected by diners.
Only small negatives: The bed was comfortable however the sheets and pillow cases were extremely stiff and starchy even for hotel standards, which affected sleep quality a bit. And while we had bedding to accommodate 3 people, there was only 2 arm chairs in the lounge area, would be useful to have a couch.

Stayed three nights in Strahan, a small and isolated place. Risby Cove was fantastic. Accommodation was fantastic. Rooms were huge and very comfortable and included all you really needed. Bedroom was spacious with a comfortable bed. A good sized sitting area with comfortable lounge chairs, gorgeous local pottery and huge bathroom. Chris and Sheila the owners were fabulous, friendly and very helpful. The restaurant was excellent with local produce and very popular - you may need to book as it is very good quality. Risby Cove is right on the water overlooking the harbour - a great view. Very highly recommended.

Room Tip: We were upstairs and had a great view.

We were very happy with our accommodation and dining experience at Risby Cove. We always require a non-smoking room and the hotel provided this. On a beautiful warm afternoon it was a pity that we couldn't enjoy the great environment and waterfront setting through open doors and windows, due to the presence of smokers on the deck outside our room. It would be a great improvement if common walkways and stair areas were made non-smoking so that smokers' filth does not intrude on the enjoyment of non-smoking guests.

Comfortable, modern and welcoming. The off-season price is very good. The generous room size is a welcome change from other hotels in Tassie. We ended up in the hotel's restaurant as it was not much different in price from the rather ordinary pub in town. Our meals were good and the atmosphere pleasant. Worth a repeat visit.
