We recently stayed here for one night as a stopover between Hobart and Strahan and our expectations were instantly exceeded. The cottages are beautifully decked out and the bedrooms and living areas are very large. There's plenty to do around the estate and the views are spectacular. The tavern food was delicious, but you should stock up on supplies before... More

What a pleasant surprise. We booked an old engineers cottage at Tarraleah Estate for one night to break up the journey from Queenstown to Hobart. We should however have booked for longer. One night just was not enough. The Estate is a former town for workers building the nearby hydro electricity facilities. It is now in private hands. The cottages... More

Looks quaint at first but appearances can be deceiving! Rooms very cold, blown light bulbs and gaps between the window panes that you could drive a truck through! Soap dispenser was left empty and no towels were left one day, had to dry myself with a face washer! Reception is rarely open and some staff were very rude. Noisy possums... More

We stayed in the Engineer’s Cottage and we loved it. On arrival we found the fire in the sitting room had been lit for us and lamps turned on so it felt welcoming straight away. The furniture has been thoughtfully chosen to complement the cottage and there was a delight at every turn. The bathrooms thankfully were very much 21st... More

Tarraleah rescued us! Our large group flew into tassie and arrived at our pre booked and paid for accommodation only to be told it had been double booked and we were kicked out. Even though we'd paid 100% & booked 9 mths in advance. We were left without a place to stay and 14 people to try and find accommodation... More

This is an old hydro power town that is now in private hands and has to be one of the worlds quirky hotels. Think Truman Show. They have a variety of accommodation but we chose the Engineers Cottage, which is house. It is incredibly clean and furnished to the period. I only wish they sold the items that are furnishing...

We stayed in a lakeside cottage, which was comfortable if a touch Spartan. The kitchen facilities were adequate, the bed was comfortable enough (with a much needed electric blanket!) but the lounge room couch was uncomfortable almost to the point of being unusable. The massage and hot tub facilities available onsite were quite excellent. The local pub is good, with... More

We found this to be interesting and comfortable. What had been a very large workers’ settlement during the building of the hydro-electric scheme has been transformed into tourist accommodation. There is a lodge with superior accommodation, several cottages, a school that has been converted into motel type units and a caravan park. We stayed in the Scholars’ House and found... More

We wanted to book the recently opened Pumphouse Point for my wife's 60th but we could only get one night so as a fall back we chose to stay at Tarraleah.

We stayed in one of the Lakeside Villas to break the journey from Strahan to Hobart. It was clean and well presented inside with plenty of space for parking.
