Great suite at a fantastic location.

Review of Risby Cove
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 31 Mar 2024
Stayed in one of the suites overlooking the water. Room was lovely and well laid out apart from the bathroom. Toilet was located right next to the door and the door would not lock due to the door being poorly adjusted. Not ideal when the door is a few feet from the bed!

Other than that everying else was first class.
Date of stay: March 2024
Room Tip: The suites are worthe the extra if you can tolerate the bathroom.

Stayed for 2 nights in one of the Sawmill Apartments right on the river.
Is a really lovely place. Very clean and comfortable.
Whilst we did not get to see the sunset due to the weather could imagine would be lovely.
The only downside is that the toilet is located right next to bathroom door which is adjacent to the bed. ( Bit awkward even for a married couple of 20 years)

We had a 2 night stay at Risby Cove and on arrival, thought wow, the location is amazing. Then everything else went downhill from there. The rooms and furnishings are very outdated. The bathroom vanity tap dripped continuously; thankfully the closed door silenced the sound. The bathroom fittings were old and there was considerable mould around the basin. The TV didn’t work and there was no locking mechanism on the front screen door. We had a great view of the harbour from our upstairs window. Sadly, the flyscreen was covered in dust and there were dead insects at the bottom of the window. Even the downpipes (at eye level) outside our room were rusted and covered in cobwebs.
The hotel needs a lot of love and attention to bring it up to a quality standard.

This Hotel may have seen better days but they charge like they’re five star. The location of our accommodation was overlooking the cove - spectacular view from the front verandah. So much potential but overall experience was just disappointing. Rooms were spacious but very dated & tired looking. The heater didn’t work and the television didn’t work. We couldn’t contact anyone as the office was closed. There aren’t a lot of choices for accommodation or restaurants. They’re so ridiculously expensive. NRMA recommends the village as a tourist destination but apart from their cruises along the beautiful Franklin River & the various hikes - there’s not a lot to do.

Room tip: If your budget is tight there’s a well stocked IGA open until 730.

Comfortable and quiet, but I agree with other reviews. This is far from being a boutique hotel.
On the plus side its setting is beautiful and the restaurant very good, but the furnishings are tired, old fashioned and basic.
Had we been expecting a motel we wouldn't have been disappointed, but as it sells itself as a boutique hotel we were.

Room tip: Booking for the restaurant is essential

Wonderful place to wake up. The service was great at the reception we loved the views. We will be back. Quiet and homely when you sit with the curtains open all you see is the wilderness and water. A short walk to the pub and trips up the river. Thanks so much.
