This was by no means luxurious. The chalet felt grubby with an unwashed milk jug full of gunk. Continental breakfast was a box of cereal. Butter jam provided but no bread! Daniel was rude when we asked him to replenish the breakfast after one day. Dinner awful - pile of greasy food. Maybe we should have tried the pizzas. Dorothy... More

We stayed here initially because the main accommodation at Cradle Mountain was booked out, however we're so glad we ended up staying here. The accommodation is reasonably priced and clean, but the real highlight was the hospitality of the owners Dorothy and Daniel. They were an absolute delight and went out of their way to help and make us feel... More

We stayed 3 nights here and we're thrilled with the beautiful,clean and spacious room. Our room overlooked dense fern and alpine gardens and was very relaxing and comfortable. Bed was great and bathroom modern and spacious. The kitchenette was adequate for preparing lunches or a simple dinner. Moina is about 25 mins drive to Cradle Mountain itself, and about 25... More

Our stay here was purchased as an on-line deal. Note to self….read the fine print! Although the room was pretty comfortable it was somewhat misleading. The Chalet is 30kms from Cradle Mountain Visitors Centre and its certainly not boutique and luxurious. I'd say quaint and basically comfortable. Looking at normal prices for these Chalets it seems there was no deal... More

My new wife and I spent a week in Tasmania for our honeymoon. We stayed at various hotels as booked by our travel agent but this one was the most disappointing. Advertising as a boutique, luxury establishment one would assume that a certain standard is kept. This accommodation is in no way close to cradle mountain....30 km to the mountain... More

We didn't stay at the Lodge but we had a magnificent lunch and drinks at the associated Moina Tavern. Pizzas are awesome and very well priced after a big day of walking the mountain. Good selection of wines and whiskey are available. Kids well catered for also.

My wife and I decided to stay at Cradle Chalet for two nights with my son and his partner. Dorothy gave us cabins next to each other so I was able to check the quality of both cabins. I was amazed, the tastefully way both cabins were fitted out and decorated. I found both to be extremely clean and already... More

Stayed here in one of the cabins, amenities were clean and modern, had excellent wood fired pizza, nice coffee, nice atmosphere, a packed picnic which was very very nice on one of our hikes and friendly helpful staff. Would definitely return again. My only regret is having not got snowed in !

Kitchen and bathroom facilities poorly cleaned. Rubbish from previous visitors still in rubbish bin. Noisy fan in bathroom on automatic switch which one cannot switch off. A huge disappointment. No wifi in room, although stated as available.
