We arrived at this lodge at Lake St Claire after dark around 5.30pm in winter, it's very very dark poorly lit and bad signage as to where reception is. Hard to find in the dark. It was raining and the reception clerk was not helpful, no offer of umbrellas to get to our cottage, the place is badly lit leading... More

Very comfortable accommodation. Incredible views across the lake from my room. Hard to believe I was in a World Heritage area. The restaurant does a great meal. I had a perfectly cooked Eye-Fillet steak.I don't recommend driving their at night though (unless you drive slow or have very good insurance). We hired a car in hobart and drove up late... More

It was a spur of the moment decision to stay at the lodge. The gentleman at reception was very helpful with our booking and we found ourselves in a lovely lakeside cabin with spa and breakfast included. The downside with our stay started with our dinner. My fish dish was fine except that the vegetables were of the frozen variety.... More

A great spot over looking the lake, great clean rooms, big enough for our other travellers to join us, sip some whine eat some cheese... relax. And the sun rise over the lake with mist rising made for some top photos.

After a day on the road and a desire for a little comfort, an off the cuff inquiry with the Lake St Clair Lodge saw a good value room obtained on the water's edge providing great views of the lake and surrounding mountains. You felt immersed in the wilderness and the accommodation was clean, warm and comfortable. Couldn't have asked... More

Surprising, amazed, beautiful and timeless........ Once in a while we all deserve to be treated. This is a lost heaven.... Surrounded by true nature we couldn't have wished for more. The cabins were so completely comfortable, and tastefully fitted out. Loved the in-room products - luxurious. The staff were very friendly, happy and excited to assist wherever they could to...

After climbing Mt Rufus which towers over Lake St Clair, we were delighted to arrive at Lake St Clair Lodge for the night. Our walk was 18 kms and quite steep in parts, so the lovely shower and great accommodation was very welcome for our tired and aching limbs. Everything about it was first class, the units were well designed... More

I stayed at the backpacker's accommodation for one night after the Overland Track. It was definitely an anti-climax after the trek. The place is expensive and they charge for everything, even showers! A bed in the backpacker's dorm is $40, compared to $30 at the Discovery Park near the start of the trek. The facilities are worse, the room has... More

My partner and I are avid hikers we spent the night camping in the national park next to the lodge. After dinner we decided to pop in and have a drink at 6.40pm. We purchased a $40 bottle of wine and a pint of beer and drank the beverages at a regular pace, we by no means sat on our... More

Absolutely beautiful. Great accommodation and everything you could want in a wilderness hideaway. Wildlife at your door and a lovely restaurant to dine in. Great cosy fireplace in the bar. The lake is beautiful and a great start to the overland trail if you want to walk.
