Peppers was absolutely amazing. Within the heart of the national park, plenty of walks and tours to keep you occupied. Wild animals were at our doorstep and within the grounds of the lodge. The cabins are absolutely delightful, can't wait to return!

The fact that this has Peppers above the door doesn't make it a luxury property, it just means they charge a premium for what is the old Lodge with updated bathrooms and a turn down service. The rooms are dated (aside from the bathrooms, and they really should have added under-floor heating when the update was done) and not at... More

Our first visit to Cradle Mountain Lodge was in 2010. For out return, we requested the same cabin and we were able to get it. We found much of what we loved about the location unchanged. Cabins are cozy, if a bit rustic, and right in the middle of wildlife (a camera of some sort is a 'must have' even... More

We stayed here for a few nights during our honeymoon. We had a contemporary spa suite and it was nice. It probably could be a bit more luxe considering the price you have to pay. The day spa was also beautiful (with a spectacular view), but extremely expensive. The location of the lodge is absolutely magical, and there is wildlife... More

Really enjoyed staying at the Cradle Mountain lodge. The rooms were large and comfortable although the fake) fire with real wood was a bit misleading The location is fabulous with all the Cradle Mountain walks within easy reach. The restaurant was excellent both food and service. The Tavern was also very good. Breakfast buffet was as expected from Peppers really... More

It is quite a while since I stayed at Cradle Mountain Lodge. It was not a Peppers then. What a shame. They have improved the rooms BUT there was no housekeeping to speak of. There were piles of dust and dirt in the 4 corners of the bathroom which were there when we arrived and when we left 3 days... More

We stayed for one night here. We had a chalet which was quite reasonable. As you might expect from a rural mountain lodge things are a bit basic but very acceptable. The dining arrangements were a bit "canteen" and the lounge felt a bit like a creche for older children on the evening we were there. A good base to... More

With family over from the UK, we had 3 different room types, a 2 bedroom family suite which was completely self contained, a spa suite in the old style decor, and a more modern pencil pine cabin. The 2 bedder, room 30, was fine for our needs, spacious and clean, but nothing to make you go wow. The other 2... More

We were lucky enough to book two spa rooms at the resort with short notice and we were so glad we did. Rooms were comfortable and well presented. The local wildlife was awesome with the biggest Wombats we had ever seen. Great location from which to explore Cradle Mountain. Dinner and breakfast we also good at the main restaurant.

We stayed here for one night. We paid for the pencil pine cabin, but on arrival were upgraded to the spa suite. The room was spacious, clean and had little extra luxury details such as complimentary cookies, plunger coffee and a bottle of port with a sign saying to have a complimentary glass. Must be very nice in winter with... More
