Short overnight trip. Stayed in a 2 br cabin ( a more basic one). Slept very well as very quiet and restful. Basic facilities, warmed by 2 heaters and electric blankets on all beds. Beds more comfortable than first expected. Kitchenette facilities quite able to cook a good breakfast and boil or microwave for tea. Water is discoloured but very... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in June and absolutely enjoyed it. After a lengthy trip, 2 flights and a long drive (slight detour due to GPS) we were greeted by the friendly receptionist who offered a map with proper directions for our return:) She gave us a quick brief about the place and we went to our cottage to...

We spent 2 nights in the 2 bedroom spa unit. It was very clean, new and we were impressed. When we arrived the heaters were on, and it was lovely and warm. You can park the car out the front (convenient with kids) - they told us to back in, to make it easier in case on snow. Overnight it... More

The spa cottages in the Wilderness Village are all they say they will be. We were welcomed by friendly and attentive staff who were willing with suggestions and any directions. The gas fire in the long single room was so effective we turned it off for a while to cool the place down a little. Our daily visitor came to... More

If you are looking for comfort and value in Cradle Mountain, the Wilderness Village is certainly the place to go. My wife and I stayed in one of the Spa Cottages which are placed at the end of the property and thus have the most excellent views unimpeded by any unnatural objects. If you love native wildlife, we had the... More

We were excited to be staying in a place which was by far our most wilderness holiday. By the time we arrived it was just past sunset. With the rain and low lit lamps in the compound, it took a bit of adjusting to see the road. We spotted a few pademelons near the reception as we were checking in.... More

We had a spacious 2 bedroom cabin that was very clean, bright and well-equipped. We were very comfortable and had 2 interesting evening visits by cute pademelons and possums. On our walks, we saw wombats that just ignored us and went on chomping on the tufts of grass. All in all, thoroughly enjoyable!

Cradle mountain was the highlight of our trip. After the most spectacular day hiking, to come back to the spa cottage with its luxurious spa and gorgeous fire place was decadent! So worth it. We had dinner at the restaurant, which I would highly recommend. We loved the whole experience here and can't wait to come back!! Thank you cradle... More

From the time we arrived to the time we left it was thoroughly enjoyable, the Spa Cottage had everything we needed, from the deck you looked out into the bush, which gave you plenty of privacy. The room had enough heating to keep you warm on the coldest night, the bed king size and had enough room to get lost... More

We upgraded our room to suite with the shower tub in the middle of the studio. Layout is weird thou and size is average only. Good heater that keeps the house from cold. At night, you can see animals around. Overall, the unit is clean, good kitchen, toilet & shower is good. Reception was helpful, other than the restaurant is... More

Cradle Mountain Wilderness Village strives to provide guests with a natural wilderness experience in highland accommodation in Tasmania without compromising comfort. Our private, self-contained cottages and chalets in Tasmania have been carefully sited in the rainforest so you are surrounded by native plants and wildlife. Our Cradle Valley accommodation offers a variety of cottages catering for the travelling couple up to larger family group. The Wilderness Village at Cradle Mountain now boasts a contemporary restaurant featuring modern Tasmanian cuisine with views through temperate rainforest along the Cradle Valley to Cradle Mountain.

The restaurant seats 70 guests and a private room forms part of the restaurant which can be used by up to 20 delegates for meetings or private dining. Our Executive Chef, Andrew Sutherland, from our sister property, Restaurant Esca at Hotel Charles, has designed his menu focusing on local produce, being some of the best quality produce in Australia, and is complimented by a wine list featuring only the best Tasmanian fine wines. Gourmet breakfast hampers are available for guests to pre-order, where they can prepare from the comfort of their self contained Cottage or Chalet. Hellyers Restaurant is open for dinner 7 days a week from 5pm, and guests are invited to enjoy a drink from the bar in the guest lounge from 4pm daily. ... more   less
