Stayed recently at the Crays for two nights. It was a spacious, clean and comfortable unit (we stayed in the three bedroom) and very reasonably priced. It was in a great location with good walks nearby. We have three children and there was lots of room for them to stretch their legs and play. I would highly recommend this accommodation

Booked Studio Unit 3 on the basis that it had harbour views. They were non-existent. Road noise evident. However, couldn't fault the room. Large clean and modern with well equipped kitchen. Large bathroom and lounge area. Car port attached. Polite staff.

R.M. Thank you for your comments. I can see why you were disappointed about the "non existent harbour views" . Did you notice the new buildings over the road? I'm sad to say that although we are still over the road from the harbour, a direct view is no longer ours from Studio 3. The restaurant is still great though!...

The cottage was clean, well presented and very comfortable. Lacking an oven so only basic meals could be prepared. However, there was a microwave and an excellent bbq area. Set in a very pleasant garden the cottages are ideal for a short break in this picturesque and interesting region. The CRAYS at The Esplanade are within an easy, flat walk...

We stayed over a weekend. Comfortable, spacious and clean. The apartment had those added little touches that you often don't find in holiday accommodation .. eg. a water spray bottle with the iron & a full sized ironing board. The divan had clean sheets already on it even though we hadn't stated that we would need it. Lots of extra...

We had the house and it is, as promoted, most comfortable, spacious, clean, and within easy distance of central Strahan. The personal touches by Megs are noteworthy and add to the experience. The promise of (free) Wi-Fi however was not met. We were told when checking in that there were "problems" and it is only available in the laundry or...

we were greeted by Meg the owner warmly at the reception, she gave us lots of useful tips on where to go for meals and best timing for meals etc. The time of the year when we visited Strahan was not peak season or school holiday but surprisingly everywhere was really busy and most of restaurants were booked out. If...

The Crays has 2 sites, one waterside & the other back on the hill. Kelly Cottage is located on the hill. The 2-room cottage is quiet, clean, well equipped & comfortable. A second bathroom would be an advantage for couples sharing. Highlight of the Strahan visit was Geoff's amazing sea-plane ride up the Gordon River

We loved visiting Strahan. This accommodation is clean and comfortable but lacks the character that many of the places have created here. The kitchen is well equipped and the washing machine is free. Dryer is coin operated. Previously we've been staying at B&Bs so we missed the personal touches that they offer.

Four of us rented for three nights a soacious dwelling with three bedrooms, one bathroom and separate toilet, combined lounge dining area, small outdoor area and carport with an undercover clothes line. We found it well located - able to walk to the attractions and restaurants and comfortable enough although the decor may not have been to our taste (mainly...

What a small world, Meg the owner came from the same town as one of us....a lovely surprise. Very clean and comfortable lodging, beautiful views from veranda.
