Review: Strahan Village

Review: Strahan Village

After our car received a jumpstart from the kind staff at Cradle Mountain Chateau, we were on the road again. The destination for our second night in Tasmania was the West Coast of Tasmania, specifically the town of Strahan (pronounced “straw-n”).

Strahan is one destination in Tasmania that we hadn’t been to yet and we were excited to visit this quaint historic fishing village that provides a variety of unique holiday accommodation, including beautifully appointed waterfront cottages and terraces.

We arrived in Strahan at lunchtime and took a quick walk around the lovely little town.

Pretty place, isn’t it? We grabbed a quick bite to eat at Banjo’s Bakehouse before it was off to our accommodation for the night.

The Room

Bed at Strahan Village

We were spending the night in a Hilltop Standard Room at Strahan Village, a very spacious room with a split accommodation and lounge area.

The View

The sweeping views overlooking Macquarie Harbour from our private deck were beautiful and sitting out here was very relaxing.

If it was a sunnier day and a little bit warmer, we would’ve spent a lot of time out here!

The Restaurant

View 42 Buffet

The definite highlight of our stay at Strahan Village was dinner at the View 42° restaurant, set on the hilltop overlooking the beautiful village and harbour.

Our treat was a Tasmanian Gourmet Buffet featuring some of the finest local cuisine including soups, cold selections, hot selections, desserts and a variety of dishes on ice.

It’s impossible to say what our favorite dish was – though we did our best to try as many of them as possible. The prime Tasmanian roast of the day was delicious, as was the garlic and rosemary cream potato bake.

Our biggest complaint about Strahan Village was the cost of internet – $5 for an hour or $15 for 24 hours. We outright refuse to pay for internet at hotels simply on principle but this was very disappointing when all we wanted to do was update you about the lovely spot we were in.

    Phenomenal view you had and I dig the feel of the town. But you are so right…free wifi should be a given.
