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 booked 2 cottages for 2 couples However each cottage has 2 to 3 bedrooms. .so in fact we could have all fitted in One The cottages are beautiful and quaint . A fantastic 1950s look They are authentic cottages built to house the Engineers and their families working on the Hydro Electric projects in the 1940s. But.. a BIG WARNING. take food with you. There is no shops. The nearest shop is 35 km drive away. Take drinks wine and whatever snacks you may need or food you may need to prepare The highlander pub is great and had decent food but isn't open every day. The breakfast hamper that you are meant to cook yourself is Sparse. 2 eggs some bacon bread and condiments. Expensive at $20 pp. The views are fabulous. The walks beautiful and the serenity sublime. It's cold there so be prepared and use the log fires Incidentally one of the cottages had faulty Aircon and we had to move ...

Tarraleah is an accommodation estate plumb in the middle of Tasmania, unconnected to any town or settlement.. It is a settlement in its own right, a leftover town from the establishment of the hydroelectric scheme in the region, in the early to mid 20th century. Its history is well worth Googling, as it is really interesting. It offers a wide range of accommodation options, from the grand lodge, through cottages, tiny houses, and cabins. We chose a cabin, and were really pleased with our choice. Yes, it doesn't look like much from the outside, a bit grim, to be honest. Inside, it was roomy, well equipped, with a large bathroom, a big bed with lots of space around it, and a good kitchen. We ate at the restaurant, which was fine, and repaired to our cabin for an early night a bit of TV. Sadly, the TV said 'no signal', and as the estate is without wifi or phone reception for Optus users, the advice to call a mobile number with any problems was totally not much help! Checkin and checkout are person-free, so there wasn't anyone around to talk to. However, we were more than pleased with our overnight stay in such an interesting place, and would recommend it. There are no shops for 30km, so you have to be prepared when you arrive, with breakfast provisions etc.

We arrived expecting a humble workers cottage but were amazed to discover a sensitively restored original Art Deco home with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, full kitchen, authentic period furniture and a log fire with a whole woodshed full of logs! We had two nights here and it rained the whole time, but what did we care? We just rested, did the laundry and explored the house! This was the Electrical Engineer's home so there was also an abundance of power points!

We stayed in one of the beautifully restored cottages. Cold outside but warm, cosy and super clean inside. Our only complaint that we didn’t stay long enough… We went to visit the hairy cows and walked many kilometres both days. Admired the rainforest and saw a pair of wedgetail eagles close by

We decided an overnight stop here would be a welcome respite between Strahan and Rosetta and allow us to visit various attractions on route. Keys and map of estate packaged and available on arrival, sighted no personnel until dinner was delivered to our room. The cabin was well located on the estate, good ablution area, comfortable bed, table & chairs, TVs in both kitchen/dining and bedroom. Overall somewhat cramped but very functional, I guess not all visitors have 2 suitcases and other baggage. No wardrobe facility. We were aware when booking that we would be without internet access and wifi for the duration. I am rating as 4* as while the ducks may be very friendly, someone needs to high pressure wash the crap from the paths and verandas so that guests do not have to tiptoe through their deposits.

Stayed one night in a self contained cabin that was advertised as Lake View. There was no lake, just a pond that you couldn’t actually see. The unit had an excellent bathroom, was spacious and clean but the bed may need replacing, hubby thought if he moved too much a spring would pop. Sadly the bar/restaurant wasn’t open(we knew at time of booking) In its hey day the place would have been a wonderful stop.

6 couples in three seperate cottages, each couple with a huge bedroom and Queen size double bed and own bathroom plus evening meal cooked and delivered to the door for only $260 per cottage. The low combustion fire ready to be lit and the cottage beautifully warmed. We booked for two nights and had two different evening meals. More than enough room in the lounge room for all of us to eat and sing along with two friends being guitarists. This is my 4th visit to Tarraleah for my birthday and everyone had a fantastic weekend. A walk to the falls is a must and there is a golf course less than one kilometre away. Julian who owns the village has done a great job in restoring the cottages and lodge to their former Art Deco glory. Hurry and book as the Winter Warmer ends on 31 July 2020.

Well this place is a eye opener. It all starts as you take the turn off the highway. The road in was full of large potholes which worried me that we were in the right place. After meeting the young lady at the reception she gave us the keys and pointed where to go. When we walked into our cabin it was like walking into a freezer, it was very cold, I tried to put the heater on but it wouldn’t work. I contacted reception and they sent a young bloke around and he finally got it working. I had asked for extra blankets in case it doesn’t get warm enough and he bought me a couple. Once the place was warm we cooked dinner the we bought of the reception as a frozen meal, it was ok and more than enough.We found we would like some bread for breakfast, I asked reception again and the young bloke brought us 4 slices and butter. Next morning when we woke up, but not really slept well during the night we pulled the sheets of the bed and found a very tired and old bed, we think put there in 1933 when the place started. We drove around the place the next day and were shocked at what was there and what isn’t there anymore. This place was a thriving town once that had it all. Very interesting old history with this place. It was just another adventure on our Tassie trip.
