Avoid staying here. この宿泊先を絶対に利用しないことを強く勧めます。 Accommodation is terrible, restaurant is ok. If you judge a place by the lowest-priced room, then the Lake St Clair Lodge is abysmal. The main case is the showers. シャワーがボロくて汚すぎます。 They are dirty, not regularly cleaned and extremely basic - not to mention very old. Cobwebs everywhere. Mouldy tiles. Rusty fittings. Rough rubber mats that hurt your feet. Our whole reason for staying here was to have a nice shower and a rest after doing the Overland Track. But now that Parks have arranged for Overland walkers to be able to shower at the Lake St Clair end, no-one doing the walk should be fooled into booking accomodation here. Having showers that hurt your feet after days of walking is insane. Even the basic "room" we had was obviously a revenue-chasing cheap division of a large building into tiny separate bed spaces. The serving staff are clearly doing their best. But the lodge is  understaffed and the workers are not just rushed, but *harried*. Management is clearly trying to squeeze maximum profits from this place and putting almost nothing back in maintenance or staff care. A nice summation of the place was the "Pepperoni Frittata" I had. It had only a single slice of pepperoni on top, no spinach inside, and instead of bacon they used spam as the main ingredient...All front, no substance or care put into the heart and soul of the business.

I just completed the famed Overland track, which means I spent 6 night and 7 days eating trail-gruel...dehydrated everything. If you have ever hiked for a length of time you will appreciate that any food (other than dehydrated) tastes 10x better then it normally does. So when I arrived back in civilization and order a burger and chips from this restaurant and received the worst burger I have EVER eaten - literally - I could not believe it possible. Even dodo should have tasted ok but this was crap. It is worthy of a review only because it was world class bad....as was the jerk who severed me. Bravo LSCL restaurant, you really did excel...bummer for me it was or all the wrong reasons

We stayed in the Drumlin Bunkhouse for two nights in early January. For $160 per night we had a room that barely fitted a double bed, and a couple of shelves. There was a common cooking and rec space which was ok. The separate ammenities block was run down and filthy. It wasn’t cleaned during the time we were there. On the plus side, the cafe, restaurant and bar facilities were very good. We did look at renting one of the villas available but they we very expensive.

After paying a premium price, we expected a premium service but it was sadly below average. The fridge in our room was extremely loud and kept me up half the night. The staff at the counter were not welcoming or helpful. The king size bed was very comfortable and we did enjoy using the spa in our room but apart from those two good points, I can't really say it was worth the over $400 a night room fee, I'm not even sure exactly what I paid for. The complimentary breakfast was very basic... and the meal at the restaurant was fine dining price - without the fine dining quality. The Derwent hotel just down the road however, had beautiful pub meals at a fraction of the price. We won't be back to the lodge. Beautiful scenery, but we just felt it was a bit wanky for our liking. After we spent two nights here we did an overnight hike the next day but got back too late to use the shower at the visitor center, so we asked if we could pay to use the camp grounds shower and were declined. Very disappointing, considering we'd just spent all that money on two nights accommodation with them and they wouldn't even 'let' us buy a shower!

We ate here after a long 21km hike with friends doing the Mt Rufus circuit. There was noone else eating at the lodge, other than our party of 8. To feed us all, we ordered 4 pizzas (one of each- tandoori chicken, pepperoni, vegetarian and a meat lovers). They were $25 each. They were ok. I wouldn't be rushing to have them again. The biggest disappointment was the 3 bowls ($9.50 each) of handcut, organic potato chips. These came out the colour of dark chocolate. No word of a lie. They were burnt practically black. I tried to send them back, but the waiter argued they were not burnt, "just organic". This was the biggest load of garbage. The waiter then continued to argue that they "preserve the skins, to keep them organic". It was such a load of garbage. I paid $30 for 3 bowls of burnt chips. Unfortunately, our party was so hungry, we ate the burnt chips. I would never recommend this place to anyone. There is no customer service. Unfortunately, when you find yourself out at lake St Clair, the pickings are thin, probably why they get away with serving customers burnt black chips.
