I don't recommend this place at all. We arrived with my friends in this "hotel" because we were looking for a cheap place to sleep. We tried an other place before and we were disappointed so we didn't sleep there. We arrived and the receptionist said "40$". Without blanket and linden. Because it was 7.5$ more to have it (thanks... More

From the time we arrived we had fantastic service from the front desk through to the restaurant. The food was fantastic and the accommodation was wonderfully comfortable and cosy. Slept like babies. Highly recommend Lake St Clair Lodge.

I stay only one night in this place (more is not possible). I slept in a 4 bed dorm room, the temperature outside was around 2 degrees and in the room around 4 degrees (the heater doesn't work normaly). You have to pay 7.5 dollars for blanket and sheet and 1 dollar for 6 minutes of shower ! The next... More

We were looking around for something to do and decided to make a trip down to Tasmania last weekend to escape the city life. We noticed that this place had an in-house entertainment and were in the wilderness, so we thought we'd give it a go. We are very glad that we did. After a quick and easy flight from... More

The experience started nicely - great service at check in. We had splurged for a loft style cabin. This was by far our most expensive night of the trip. At first the retro style and large amount of space near the lake was all good. A mistake in the housekeeping was soon rectified politely by the staff. Then as we... More

We broke up our trip to Cradle Mountain with a night here. The cabin was great. Big comfy bed and super quiet. Lodge was great to sit in a night and have a beer. We walked up to Platypus Bay which was a nice walk. Didn't see a great deal of wildlife...

I ordered a scotch fillet medium, it came out very blue/rare, so I asked to have it cooled longer then it became chewy like rubber. The vegetables were frozen packet mix vegetables -very long wait for an undercooked meal also - and expensive! Rooms were nice - no complaints there - I'd suggest skip the food or don't order the...

We had a couple of nights in Lake St Clair Lodge during our short stay in Tasmania. I would say very helpful staff, polite and respectful from the Reception to the Room service staff. Restaurant & Bar had a quite acceptable variety of foods which cover all type of customers taste. Would say, had a one of the best meal... More

We are as isolated as can be in one of the loveliest settings in Australia, with gorgeous looking cabins set in amongst the trees just back from the lake. This could be so good but it isn't, mainly because of the shortcuts taken to save money. Things that dont work in the room like a fridge that freezes everything, even... More
