We stayed last night in the cottage, and what a delight. Absolutely gorgeous, beautifully appointed cottage with roaring fire to welcome us. Gourmet kitchen complete with local produce. Beautiful strawberries, yoghurt, juices, tomatoes, eggs, bacon, sausages and bread basket. Plus well stocked pantry for anything else you might need. Every detail is thought of here to make your stay an... More

We had come across the cable station's yummy wood fired seafood creations at various festivals around Tassie (see restaurant review) and also liked the look of their accommodation. Our family of four (8 & 11) had a three night stay in the technician's cottage over Easter and loved every bit of it. Provisions included in your room rate include the... More

Spent one night here in first week July with two 10 year old boys. Wow. What an amazing place. We wanted the cottage which was booked out so Don & Charlotte had arranged for us to have the telegraph room with a fold out for one of the kids. When we arrived though there was a cancellation, so we were... More

I have just spent the best weekend with my fabulous husband and "besties" at the cable station as a 50th birthday present. Our room presentation was beautiful, the bed was so comfortable. The local goodies in our breakfast baskets and in the cottage were top class. Best of all was the amazing dinner Charlotte had produced for my special birthday... More

After arriving in the beautiful seaside town of Stanley, a truly unique and indulgent experience awaits at the Old Cable Station. Feast your eyes and stomach with the tranquil surrounds and experience of the restaurant. Showcasing local produce, the oven cooked crayfish was the smash of the evenings dining. We sincerely thanks our hosts for being guests at their magnificent... More

On arriving we were shown to our beautiful King Room which contained a large bathroom with full size claw bath, shower and basin, kitchenette, dining table with 2 chairs and large flat screen TV. A sliding glass door opened onto an outside patio with table and chairs overlooking beautiful Cape Grim Beef cattle crazing contentedly with the blue Southern Ocean... More

My partner and I enjoyed a stay and dine package at the Cable Station. Everything about our weekend away was fantastic. The room was well set-up, modern and clean. We really enjoyed the high quality and locally sourced toiletries, and the lavish breakfast hamper (again filled with locally sourced produce). Our hosts Euan and Jacqueline were friendly and helpful. The... More

A lovely stay. Our husband and wife hosts were very friendly and hospitable. We enjoyed hearing their stories of their travels. We dined in the restaurant and it was just wonderful. A meal to remember. We really enjoyed our time here.

I stayed here a few weeks ago and thought it was great! The property is (as the name suggests) the old cable station that used to facilitate communications with the mainland and has been converted into a small, boutique B&B with only a handful of rooms. The property is set on a rugged piece of land just outside of Stanley... More

We stayed in the Postmaster's cottage, which was incredible - we could easily live there in spacious comfort. Our hosts Euan and Jacqueline (and their lovely dog Eriska) were so welcoming and friendly and made our stay a memorable one. Our dinner at the restaurant was spectacular (congrats on the Restaurant of the Year award guys!) and the surrounds were... More
