Wasn't expecting much but was happily surprised. Old fashioned but in great condition. New owners of 6 weeks apparently. Super clean. Cute. Private. Friendly. Well priced. 20 min pretty drive from entry to Cradle Mt Nat Park. Def recommend.

Chalets were comfortable and well presented in a lovely, quiet setting only a 20 minute drive to Cradle Mountain but far enough to be away from the tourist crowds. After a long days walk the highlight was the welcoming wood fired pizza and meal prepared by the very friendly manager and accomplish chef Matt who chatted to us intermittently while... More

We stopped her for a quick lunch after visiting Cradle Mountain, the chalet/tavern is clean and your hosts were very friendly. Our lunch was good and filling, nothing beats a good soup and wedges, coffee was lovely and the pecan pie delicious.

When we booked the chalet, we didn't realise it was actually OUTSIDE of the Cradle Mountain and it was a long way to drive up to the National Park's visitor centre. The positive side was that we spotted many wildlife along the long drive - in particular, many wombats, echidnas, and wallabies. The chalet was spacious, but did not have... More

We chose this as it was outside Cradle Mountain National Park and it has somewhere to eat next door, we figured there wouldn't be much else around in Wilderness Country. The chalets are in a beautiful location with seemingly lots of wildlife around. We chatted to the very friendly chef on arrival and were able to check in early. Very... More

We didn't want to stay on Cradle Mountain and we were lucky enough to find these great cabins in such beautiful surroundings. Only about 20kms from Cradle Mountain and there is not much there but the cabins and the tavern. Best room we stayed in in Tasmania. Very cosy and spacious with all the facilities you require. It is set... More

We stayed there in January- our host was very accommodating and gave us good advice on where to go when I got sick in the middle of the night and had to go to the hospital! It was very convenient having the adjoined tavern nearby for dinner, and even though they seem super busy they were willing to squeeze a... More

Generous size well maintained chalet with bush outlook and spa bath. We stayed in Dragon Fly. Located approximately 15 minutes drive from Cradle Mountain along good road. Rooms were well appointed with exception to Wifi. We just had mobile phone service (Telstra). The hotel closed at 6.00 pm so need to eat early.

We chose to stay at Cradle Chalet because basically, everything apart from the most expensive, was booked at Cradle Mountain and seeing as we were going to be spending the day walking, thought it wouldn't be too far to drive out to this place. It has a lovely little bar/restaurant area when you walk in and you have visions of... More

We stayed in early November and they were just finishing their winter season and so not all facilities were fully available. The wood fired pizzas were delicious and after a hot walk, the cold drinks on the hotel balcony were great. Our only minor complaint was the unavailability of blankets instead of the heavy quilts.
