My wife and I and our twin boys spent a very pleasant three nights at Risby Cove. The location was second to none with our room opening right on the water so the boys could feed the ducks from the deck each morning and night. It is also within walking distance of the marina for boat cruises and the station...

Visited Risby Cove with a group of friends back in March 2017. What a wonderful experience! Accommodation was in one of the upstairs apartments and had an amazing view over the water. The room itself was really comfortable with every conceivable extra included. The bed was so comfortable with plenty of room for suitcases (extra bed included!). The restaurant food...

Poor maintenance ie outside lights not working ,compendium missing and no contact numbers after7 Very little help for guests Restaurant food delicious but understaffed and very slow They really need to lift their game The owners need to support their hard working staff

This time, the picture does not tell a thousand words. After a rather grueling road trip from Hobart we were looking forward to a tranquil retreat for 2 nights. It didn't happen. Reception was indifferent. We then drove up on blue metal to the rear of our tin shed (guest parking) dragging our bags to the door. The front is...

Best meal in our 10 days travelling around Tasmania. Wonderful seafood and friends enjoyed the pork cutlet. Setting perfect and staff very helpful. Food was well presented and no long waiting times. Dessert menu looked most inviting but previous courses did not leave room. Thanks to chef and staff from 4 visiting NZers

We have stayed at Risby before. But now it has gone downhill. Main difference is the Indifference of management. Attention to detail has fallen off. Customer service all but gone. If you do stay here, pick the upstairs unit near waterfront.

We made a booking for 8 people (for the March long weekend) some time ago only to be very recently advised our booking had been cancelled because a larger group had been booked in. We found other accomodation in Strahan and we had a great time, but cancelling a group's booking is poor form indeed!

We have stayed at Risby Cove many times previously on our tours of Tasmania. We booked in again this year and expected that, by making and confirming a booking, we had a booking confirmed. A week prior to our arrival we were contacted to be told that someone else had booked the whole property and hence our booking was not...

Our boathouse cabin was ok but the lack of some basic maintenance marks it down. We had only one night which was enough as the bedroom was tiny with little space around the room and it was necessary to keep one of our cases in the lounge. The bathroom is best described as basic with spa bath with shower over...
