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.

We stayed for 3 nights and had a 2 bedroom suite with views to the Strahan Harbour, including spectacular views of the sunsets. The room was very comfortable including the beds, and although not new very smartly presented with everything you needed to be comfortable. The kitchenette had crockery, cutlery and a microwave, and we used the free guest laundry....

We were in the "Barge" room, which is on the waters edge, ground floor. Amusing to watch the ducks and the water rats play at dusk, but be careful when walking around as there is a large amount of duck poo everywhere. There was a very strong smell of it outside our room. Also, I had to clean kids shoes...

An idealistic cabin overlooking the harbour if only the weather had been good. The lounge had great views across Macquarie Harbour and for us, catering for breakfast only – it was sufficient but maybe not if you are wanting to cook daily meals. Disappointed that the restaurant was closed with no available chef as that was a major reason for...

Really enjoyed our stay at Risby Cove. Thank you to all the amazing staff that made our stay in Strahan enjoyable. Really loved the view from our room and from the restaurant. Food in the restaurant was 10 out 0f 10. Rooms are not modern but very cosy. Floor heating made our room nice & warm. Thank you to all...
