Risby Cove is the perfect setting for a hotel. Our room looked straight out on to the river and across the harbour to the village. Better still were the sunsets with colours you can usually only imagine from postcards.
Our room was well appointed with a large living room, small kitchenette, bathroom with spa bath and a comfy bed. There is plenty of hanging space for clothes but not much in the way of drawer space. There was complimentary chocolate, port, coffee, tea and milk all replenished daily.
On site facilities include a free guest laundry (washing machine and dryer) and an art gallery. There is also a speedboat trip which leaves from the mooring in front of the hotel which is well worth the money. Also of note is the Gordon River trip and the daily play "The Ship that never was". A little further afield is the Pioneers Museum at Zeehan - a good half day option particularly if the weather isn't so good.
The restaurant serves good food at breakfast and dinner although the service can be erratic and very slow but the food is certainly worth waiting for. The English Rarebit (Cheese on Toast) is a must for breakfast as is the French Toast and the evening menu leaves you spoilt for choice - and leave room for a yummy dessert.
The on-site owner provides you with lots of local info on check-in and both check-in and check-out were efficient.
