The spa cabin was lovely. The bed was very comfortable, the outlook beautiful. Couldn't fault this property. The standard of cleanliness was excellent. We only spent one night and will definitely return to spend longer next time.

Upon arriving at our cabin we were very pleased. It had a lovely outlook of the bush and was warm and modern in the interior. The bathroom shower was huge! We used the heater and the 'fireplace' and enjoyed a champagne spa overlooking the bush setting. Highly recommend a spa cabin if you can afford the upgrade otherwise all the... More

I wanted to book a fabulous outdoor adventure holiday for my family which was filled with fresh air, beautiful views, long walks and cute native animals – success!!

Located 2 minutes from the entrance to Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park and attractions such as... More

The cabins are nice and cosy. There's only 2 of us but it would fit 4 ppl comfortably. The kitchen is well equipped, good for us to make our own meals. We are surrounded by bushes and wildlife comes right outside the cabin. Pretty cool experience. I also love the proximity to the tourist office and the park. It's nice... More

After driving through many kilometers of wasteland (clear cuts and dead trees) which was very depressing we finally found the lodge. Very 60's. Initially we were given a horrible room where nothing worked.Literally. The phone,clock...nothing.Finally got another room which was fine but tired. The highlight was going to our tiny balcony to be greeted by wonderful wildlife...they saved the day.... More

We had an ordinary cottage which was well equipped but needed every form of heating provided to get it warm. Although the living area with double bed does warm up, it is a freezing trip to the bathroom across an unheated hall which is unpleasant with cold Lino floors. However the bed was fine with good linen and an extra... More

This place is overpriced, but hey, everything in the cradle mountains is. The location is great, very close to the national park, with plenty of wildlife literally in front of your door. The cabins are nice and cozy. However, I was travelling with mum, and we were not happy about the following: - before checking out at 10 a.m. and... More

Friendly and attentive staff met us at reception and our lodge was well appointed, cozy, comfortable and not overlooked by the other lodges. We had all manner of wildlife visit us from pademelons to possums and heaps of birdlife. The facilities were as we expected and our final night dinner in the main restaurant was tasty and great value.

Have to admit we were a little worried when we pulled up outside our cabin, but were very happily surprised when we walked in. It had everything we wanted, the beds (with electric blankets) were comfortable and the heater worked like a dream. In fact after the first night we had to turn it right down, the place just got...

Cabins are roomy, warm and have all facilities. Being Cradle Mountain everything is expensive. A tip would be to bring own food as the cabins have all one needs to cook a meal. $41 for a meal at the restaurant seemed to be the going rate as the lodge charges the same. Can't complain about the accomodation though, it was... More
