This is a very well maintained and nicely located property to use as a base for touring around in Strahan. Located right across the street from the water and a good restaurant, and within easy walking distance to the CBD and Esplanade, as well as the very pretty People's Park (where you might see a platypus) and Hobart Falls. Even...

Lovely welcome from reception but you think that is where you are staying. Instead, you need to drive a further 5 minutes to a place on the hill. Still not bad but just not what you are expecting. The place its self was exceptionally clean and well looked after. However, you are in amongst the neighbours and one such neighbour...

Location and configuration: set on the hill above Strahan’s scenic port, the King’s and Kelly Units share a carport and a rear, covered courtyard with BBQ. They also share a narrow entrance (which funnels noise) a forward-facing, covered patio and garden, as well as a long internal wall. Construction: is flimsy and cheap and because the house is separated lengthwise...

We spent several nights in a studio cottage and found it very comfortable. Megs (the proprietor) was friendly and helpful and everything was clean and cosy. It's a short walk from the centre of the town along the esplanade and a good place as a base for exploring the area. Trevor (Megs's partner) runs the best Gordon River cruise, which...

We stayed one night in unit 6, the 3 bedroom. The place was very homey with comfortable furnishings and a kitchen with all the equipment you'd need to cook. It's in a good location, being less than 10 minutes walk from the main part of the harbour. The office staff are extremely nice, even letting us know that one in...

We have visited Strahan a number of times, but this was our first visit to The Crays - and I imagine we will be back. We were met on arrival and showed our self-contained accommodation and given some dinner recommendations. During our stay we utilized the self-contained cooking facilities and laundry which were both well equipped.

We booked the King cottage which is NOT at the Esplanade with all the other cottages. It is certainly true to the photos on the website, however we did find it a bit disappointing after our stay in Port Sorrell..nowhere near the same standard and yet was only $10 a night less with NO food supplied at all ( which...

I booked this accommodation on line and was extremely happy with it. We had Unit 6 which was huge. It was clean and tidy. The staff were extremely helpful both through email and phone conversations. I would recommend this place and would stay there when I return to Strahan.

Unfortunately we only had one night in Strahan though it's surely a place worth spending a few days - if the weather is with you. Crays would surely be the place to stay again. Large Cottage, very comfortable, huge bathroom and all you need in the kitchen. And if you don't feel like cooking, Risby Cove restaurant is just across...
