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.

Lovely unique and remote lodge in the Alpine area of Tasmania. Interesting history as built to train people going to Antarctica. Lodge has been renovated very well - rooms are a bit small but have great beds and good showers. There are two big lounge areas downstairs with great views particularly of the quolls, devils and wallabies. The meals are very good considering how remote the lodge is - you normally sit at big tables and have a chance to meet and chat with other guests. There is an honour bar with an extensive range of drinks available and coffee and tea. We did some walking during our visit - it is also a great fishing area. Bec manages everything and gets you organised especially if it is your first visit.

My stay at the Thousand Lakes Lodge was beyond my wildest dreams! We had the pleasure of seeing Tasmanian devils, quolls, wombats, wallabies & birds - it’s life changing to witness these elusive critters up close. The lodge itself is cozy & there are a number of comfortable areas to sit & watch the world go by outside the window. As if that’s not enough, the vast night sky is pure magic & you may even have the opportunity to see the Southern lights. Bec & her team are an absolute delight - knowledgeable, passionate & innovative. They are restoring the land nearby after the 2019 fires to allow new sub-alpine plant growth. Bec has compiled loads of research on the Indigenous history of the area, the Antarctic training that took place in the now lodge & the landscape. Truly a spectacular experience! I will certainly be back. HIGHLY recommend!

Thanks to the passion and insights of our amazing host Bec we were able to fully appreciate the beauty of this harsh and remote landscape. Bec went above and beyond to make sure our stay was a special one and we felt at home from the moment we arrived. The lodge itself is beautifully furnished and compliments the harsh landscape with a touch of luxury that blends seamlessly with the environment. We saw so much wildlife in our 2 day stay - quolls, Tasmanian devils, wombats, wallabies, echidnas and platypus. The longer you stay the more this wild place in the world grows on you.

Our third trip back to Thousand lakes lodge was as luxurious as always, with Bec going above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed. Walking instructions with a Strava map to ensure a safe walk and fishing suggestions to land an elusive trout. Sitting comfortably inside we were treated to an array of animals traveling around the lodge including Devils, Quoll, a Wombat and Wallabies. As always we were sad to leave but will definitely be back.

A beautiful eco lodge located all alone in the wild central highlands. A landscape completely different from the rest in our tour around Tassie. So glad we added this stop. Lodge manager Bec, provided excellent service, lots of information, and made us feel very welcome and at home. The lodge is beautifully designed and decorated, clean, and cosy, and the evening meal was delicious! And we saw plenty of life in the wild while roaming around the lodge, including devils and a spotted quoll. Highly recommend!

It’s a wonderful say I will always remember, stand in the vast land, it’s like a warm sanctuary at the edge of the world. Beautiful view, great place to walk and enjoy the nature meditation. And there is surprise at night to see those adorable wild animals! I really like the host, she is just great! It’s very unique and I’d definitely recommend to everyone.

One of the best, most special hotels in the world. It is set in a true wilderness with unique landscapes, vegetation and climate. It was the former Antarctic training camp, and as you walk around you can immediately see why - we were hit with a heavy snowfall in October!(summer!) The best moment is at dusk when the earth is golden and feels like a dream I had for a long time. I don't want to emphasise that we saw wild Tasmanian Devils and Quoll, but yes, we did here! And the stars, the milk way. Everything here is just incredible. The service at the hotel was excellent, simple and friendly, like being at home. The food was also delicious. Very reasonably priced including the wine.

This was one of the most amazing stays we have ever experienced. Set in the ruggedly beautiful highlands, the lodge is extremely comfortable and inviting. There are fascinating books to read about the history of the area and the communal areas are warm and cosy. Meals were great and we spent our first night enjoying the company of other guests as we watched quolls and a Tasmanian devil before looking in awe at the star filled sky. We count ourselves extremely lucky to have met our host Bec, whose knowledge, kindness and thoughtfulness made our stay so special. Her suggestions for activities we could undertake were tailored specifically to our needs. We completed some great shorter walks around the lodge where we saw wallabies and a wombat, as well as driving the road to Lake Ada, stopping on the way to walk into lakes and lagoons. The highlight was the picnic we had at the hut, surrounded by beauty and peace. This was the most relaxing, unique break and we left feeling refreshed and determined to return. Thank you Bec for making this occasion so memorable.

A wonderful experience in the wilderness lodge - totally of the grid. The weather ensured a relaxing time warm enticing comfort. As host, Bec provided superb knowledge of the area, history of the lodge and its local wildlife. Meals were delicious and varied. Two days was not enough! Thank you!

WOW……..what can I say, this place is truely magical. A stunning lodge, that felt just like home. The food and atmosphere was amazing, and Bec’s hospitality was superb, nothing was too much trouble. It was freezing and extremely windy when we arrived to a warm fire to sit beside in the den!!! The Devils, Quolls, wombats and wallabies all came to visit. And we awoke in the morning to see it snowing….. This lodge is amazing on all levels. Thank you
