We would actually rate this about 3.5 overall. The accommodation was clean and the location was convenient for access to Gordon River Cruises and restaurants. We did not have shampoo provided and were not sure if this is normal or an oversight. We paid $580 for two nights on a 2-bedroom villa which seemed reasonable up against other Strahan options, but we found that several other places we stayed at across Tasmania (for similar or lower prices) were a slightly higher standard overall. It is nevertheless a popular choice on Tripadvisor and we would probably stay here again if in Strahan.

Strahan is a relatively small town, but with plentiful accommodation and the beautiful Gordon River to cruise along, this town is worth staying in! The Crays have quite a few cabins on offer that are very comfortable. The owners make you feel very welcome and provide a folder in the cabins with lots of tour ideas, funny stories and general information. The prices were most reasonable for our stay in this beautiful part of the world.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa (number 4 ). The accommodation was spotless, very spacious, homely and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. From our accommodation it was an easy and stunning walk along the river to restaurants and cruise departure sites. Thank you Megs for such a wonderful and well thought out accommodation. You have thought of everything and go the extra mile to ensure your guests are well looked after. If we ever venture back to Strahan we will absolutely stay with you again and will definitely book your overnight Summer cruise on Stormbreaker (we realised what we missed out on when we viewed it on the ABC show Backroads, a must see for anyone thinking of heading to Strahan, what an amazing place).

We loved our stay here. We had unit 4 which had a little deck with water view. The unit is huge. Beds were really comfortable. Loved having electric blankets. Walking distance to catch our river Cruise. Staff were extremely helpful during booking process & when we arrived. Would definitely stay here again.

The room was clean, smelled fresh & was generally a nice place to be. The location was great; only a 7 minute walk from the entry to the "Gordon River Cruise." The staff were absolutely marvellous, practically bending over backwards to make sure you were comfortable. - Especially Megs!! I wish more accommodation was as clean, easy to deal with and had equally as good staff as "The Crays". Other accommodation in Tasmania should take a leaf out of their book. Overall very happy and would not stay anywhere else in Strahan but this practical, friendly, clean & reasonably priced accommodation!! One thing to note - the beds were a little more firm than expected, however did not leave me sore the next day. - proficient enough. However overall 9.5/10 Thank you for making my time in Strahan one to remember!
