Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed for two nights and the atmosphere was so relaxing, to being greeted at arrival and being offered drinks by the fire, to amazing three course dinners with guests at the lodge and cottages it was a great experience. The dinners are held as a group event around a shared table, it was great to talk to new people who were staying both at the Lodge and the Cottages. It made for a unique experience that you don't often get. Breakfast was included and it was more than enough to keep us fueled for the day of exploring. The room itself was well maintained, clean and super comfortable. We were given a map of the area so we knew were all the walks were. They were all good, though some are better maintained than others, which is the only area for improvement we could find. We had the hot tub experience at sunset which was amazing. The facilities were really great and we really enjoyed the tub and our bottle of wine! Would visit again.

This must be one of the most remote and comfortable places to stay in Tasmania! It’s in the middle of the forest built for the people who built the Hydro Power Scheme. We drove from Hobart for about 3hrs, and were so pleased to find a comfortable warm well appointed cottage with an excellent restaurant and bar on site, amidst immaculate gardens. You couldn’t ask for more. But there is more! We were so surprised when we discovered (~15 minutes down the road) Greg Duncan’s ‘The Wall’ which is a sculptural masterpiece, as well as Lake Saint Clair, which has some stunning walks. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful two night stay at the Lodge at Tarraleah. Tarraleah is essentially a holiday village that has been developed from a town that previously housed hydro workers. The Lodge has been extensively refurbished but was historically the accommodation for the engineers and company directors - it did have another colourful chapter in between which you can read about in the hotel guide. Other options for staying in the village include the cottages and the caravan park/camping site. The Lodge is very comfortable - clean, spacious rooms. A cooked breakfast and three course dinner is included in the cost of the room. There's an honesty bar in the library/whisky collection that you can choose your own wine from including some excellent Tasmanian Pinot Noir. We were fortunate enough to be staying during a relatively quiet period - on our first night there was only one other couple there, and the second night we had the whole lodge to ourselves. We made the most of the library to relax and do some reading, especially in the evenings, and took some short walks around the grounds and enjoyed some stunning views down the valley. Chris and Angie looked after us very well throughout, including a whisky tasting and the unexpected bonus of being cooked for by effectively a private chef in the clifftop dining room. The final morning we went for a bike ride through the Highland Cattle paddock and along the Big Tree track to have our breakfast prepared for us in the forest. It's important to note that Tarraleah is located in a remote location in central Tasmania. Depending on your provider you may or may not receive much mobile phone reception on the way to or while at Tarraleah. Wifi was available and fast enough for our needs. Also, flies and insects are omnipresent during the hotter months both around the outdoor areas of the site but especially on the walking tracks - bring insect repellent and don't be surprised if they want to share your picnic lunch. Finally, the water from the taps isn't potable, but bottled drinking water is provided in ample quantity. The water in the bath/spa also runs slightly brown - it didn't bother us but it may be offputting to some.

Fantastic spot for families. Good simple accomodation. Great location for all things outdoors. Good friendly service. Would entirely recommend for anyone looking for an overnight stop off on the way to the west coast. Look out for the highland cows…a favourite of the kids.

WOW, what a stunning place , we stayed in the Engineers Cottage .Spotlessly clean, we arrived late arvo ..Open the front door to be welcomed with warmth , no lack of heating . The decor is kept to Art Deco .. The cottages and grounds are maintained beautifully .. We wandered up the hill to see the highland cows , they are super cute .. The wildlife just lay about unperturbed by our presence .. I cannot wait to take friends and family back to this hidden gem ..

My mother organised this weekend as a surprise for my 40th birthday. We were both blown away by the wonderful hospitality, sensational food cooked by Matt & Chris and the beauty of the estate. Wanting to go back already.

A grand 1930s home in the Tasmanian midlands. Gigantic well-appointed suites, capable and professional staff, and good food. The suites are inside the main house, and the guests (a maximum capacity of 18 people) have the use of the main, enormous lounge room with open fire. Staying here re-creates the mood of staying with friends in their large country house. Bushwalking, reading, and exploring the hydro-electric past and present in the surrounging country side made this an extremely pleasant stay.

We booked to stay and due to our motorcycle breaking down on the way I called to cancel. I was told that we would still have to pay for the accomodation as we were canceling outside their cancellation policy. We had also had to pay for dinner in advance. Very disappointed in their lack of understanding for the situation we were in. For that reason I would never book to stay there again.

If they need a photo to put in the dictionary next to the word "indulgence", Tarraleah Lodge would fit the bill nicely. It's an absolute experience of being spoiled and pampered :) We arrived and were greeted by the "lodge host" who showed us around. The Lodge has a lovely lounge with comfy sofas, an open fire, a guest library, 100 malt whiskeys, various wines and other drinks. The room is hugely spacious and well-equipped; the bathroom has everything from a spa bath to a heated floor. Dinner and breakfast are included and because there's only a handful of suites you get to meet and chat with the chef who can talk about the food. It's a true dining experience, not just a meal.
