    • Easy access with clean facilities. The manager is friendly and offered great local tips. Rooms adjoining the kitchen are a bit loud. After 9pm, be patient at the observation area near the river to see a platypus.

    • Great location and staff have brought me back 14 times. Bathrooms are very tired but that's not why we come to Strahan - the excellent staff more than made up for that.
