Lovely looking front units & reception, then up the back to our old daggy room with 80s bead spreads & NO AIRCONDITIONING. What motel in the last 20 years doesn't have air-condition. Hot, stuffy room, but lucky they provided a new flash invention - A FAN! Say no more, I've been here 5 minutes and I'm mighty peed off!!!!! Oh the hallway was AIRCONDITIONED so if you like to sleep there it's ok. Caught in the 70s old block up the back where the majority of rooms are is NOT what you want. We won't be back!

Hi Mixedtraveller

Thanks for posting your review. I do apologies the room booked was not up to standard. We have 142 rooms that are spread across Strahan and were built at various stages over a 30 year period. We have invested heavily in our rooms implementing brand new linen, toweling, pillows, doonas and bathroom amenities. We have also recently installed HD LED TV's in our 4 star rooms and purchased new bed bases for all our rooms which will arrive towards the end of January. We do have plans to install air conditioning in rooms without them.

regards

from what i can gather there are quite a variety of rooms on offer at the strahan village. the majority of them do sit on top of the hill overlooking the bay into which strahan is nestled. and it is a beautiful view which can be savoured from their restaurant and bar. i happened to have a room right next to the laundry which seemed to be a popular place for staff to hang out and chat in the afternoon. we arrived in the afternoon and the long corridor servicing our rooms was very dark, no doubt they were trying to save on lighting and energy costs. i can appreciate that but at the same time it's nice to not make your guests feel like they're wandering down a corridor straight out of "the shining" - maybe some skylights are needed if you want to save energy.

The motel is in the centre of Strahan (which is a small town) but in front of the harbour, so if you booked the Gordon river cruise, it's just in front of the departure bay.
The room was spacious, clean and quite, with large bed. There is free wifi but reception is poor, so that could have been better and is a thing to improve, considering that telephone carriers have bad receptions as well on the Tasmanian west coast (Queenstown, Tasmania, Cradle Mountain).
There is a restaurant in the complex with a nice view towards the harbour.
There was no surcharge on credit card, which is good considering that lots of places in Tasmania apply it.
Car parking is available in front of your motel room.

Great access to the wilderness area via the train and Gordon River. When we were there it was just prior to the "rush" period so it was fantastic. So quite and relaxed. The accommodation was average but clean and acceptable. The restaurant is excellent with a very good buffet that has an excellent range of food. The restaurant seemed under staffed however the service was not affected and the girls were very professional and provided friendly efficient service.

Hi Paul F

Thanks for taking the time to post your review. Strahan has a lot of offer from a cruise on board the Lady Jane Franklin II to seeing little penguins on the Bonnet Island Experience.

Taking in the magnificent views overlooking Macquarie Harbour at View 42 is a must do either for dinner or a relaxing drink on the deck.

Dear poppygalore1955

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. So glad you were able to do a cruise on board the Lady Jane Franklin II. Strahan is a very relaxing place that actually has a lot to do, a visit to our activities center would have provided you with all the information you needed from sand boarding at Henty dunes, 4 wheel driving on Ocean Beach, seeing little penguins on the Bonnet Island Experience or a leisurely walk to Hogarth Falls.

I hope we can host you again.

regards
