Spent two nights here. Room basic but a lovely location in an old harbour. Quiet, great sea views, 5 minutes stroll into town. Restaurant good. Another good place to stopover on our self drive tour. Drove to some remote beaches from here.

Risby Cove had the most beautiful sunsets when we stayed there (2 nights) in January. It was quit, peaceful, serene and just what the weary traveller needed. I was surprised however, that there was not a window in our room and it got stuffy and hot. There was a front door (which you would never leave open) and a back...

We booked in for dinner on New Year's Eve, they made place in spite of being fully booked by putting out an extra table on their deck. The food was awesome .. the trout quite special, great steak and a lamb to share if you have a big appetite. The desserts could do with a little more work. Great wine...

Stayed at Risby Cove for 2 nights. I really liked our little One Bedroom Suite with sea View. It sits along side another small cottage. Uninterrupted views over the bay. Ducks & a Goose at our door which was gorgeous. Now the accommodation! The bed was really bad it needs a new one & I'm not fussy. Other than that...

The good: location - right on the water, restaurant on site and 5 minute walk to the main street and harbour. The bad: over priced. I upgraded the room on booking to ensure there was a bath in the room and to get a nice view - an "Ocean view suite". Check in was nice enough. We were given the...

Checked out all other dinning spots in Strahan and decided to dine at Risby Cove, what a great choice, the 300gm scotch fillet steak was amazing and my wife enjoyed the vegetarian pasta primavera. This place has great food at a reasonable price and good customer service (hard to find elsewhere in Strahan) Highly recommend

We stayed in 'The Jetty' for one night, which was an amazing waterfront room (amazing cost as well). Large, spacious and an amazing view from the balcony. Handy parking next door and a short stroll to anywhere in Strahan. For the price and caliber of the location we would have expected friendlier service though. Reception was frosty, when enquiring after...

Didn't like the accommodation at all. Dark dingy room, dead bugs on the floor, smelly towels. Felt very run down. Much better options elsewhere in strahan. More positively the restaurant serves delicious food with a nice view over the water.
