From the first time I arrived when I was greeted by the owners Dorothy and Danial I felt comfortable,nothing was too much trouble for them , meals were nice, accomodation was neat ,tidy ,functional,comfortable and private.

    A very pleasant surprise when we arrived at this chalet. Easy to find, right there at the main junction, though no signage stating 'Cradle chalet', rather a tavern. Anyhow, check in was prompt, the chalets tucked into the edge of the bush with a good view. Room is beautiful, can only imagine how cosy it is during winter time. Bed... More

    Where to start on this review! We have been trekking around Tasmania on a 10 day trip on our honeymoon and have had some lovely accomodation. This was the most disgusting experience we have ever had! To start off its very difficult to find with extremely bad signage. The reception staff are rude and unwelcoming and almost snap at you...

    A very comfortable stay especially it came with a special deal from Tas Deals. It's our first trip to Cradle Mountain, and were happy that we had Dorothy, the owner, who is very hospitable and generous with her time in providing us some tips about what to see and do in the area. Enjoyed the pizzas and the local wine,... More

    We really enjoyed our stay in this basic but quaint timber cabin. Very comfortable bed and excellent heating. Loved the little bath after the hike. It's about a half hour drive up from the cabins to the visitors centre to get your ticket for the park and then another 15 minutes to do the Dove Lake walk which is beautiful.... More

    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
