We had a 2 night deal through Tas Deals. We founds the place difficult to find, even the GPS couldn't find it, it is not very well signed and we drove straight past it as the sign says Moina Tavern in large and Cradle Chalet is written very small. The people that greeted us were nice enough and talked up... More

The drive from *anywhere* to Cradle Mountain can be tiresome, and this spot is a perfect place to stretch the legs and grab a bite before the final furlong. Daniel the owner welcomed us and was happy to provide details about the local area. We had stopped for a lite bite but then smelled the wood fired gourmet pizza oven... More

Booked the Possums Retreat cabin for three days while walking at Cradle Mountain. The rooms are certainly private. No views to speak of. Clean enough when we arrived, but directory states daily service (as we would have expected at the price) but when we asked were told no servicing. Strange as info suggests otherwise. Only a microwave and very little... More

We had a recent two night stay and found the atmosphere very relaxing, good food, especially the pizzas. Very nice owners and a comfortable, spacious room. Very handy to both Cradle Mt and the town of Sheffield, and at an intersection, but no road noise. Would stay here again at any time, thank you.

A friend and I enjoyed a delightful afternoon tea, in this establishment. We were welcomed into the Tavern by Daniel Williams who is the host. It was a warm and cheery environment. Other guests, who were staying for 2 days asked us where they could visit. I mentioned Alum Gorge and Mole Creek Caves. The aroma which was wafting from... More

We had dinner here on recommendation from a friend who lives on Cradle Mountain. The trip down to the Tavern is scenic & wasn't too far to travel. Daniel, one of the owners greeted us warmly & made us comfortable in the lounge area for a few drinks before dinner. Drinks were well priced & his knowledge of the local... More

Our GPS directed us to the Bush. There was a tavern on the road and on enquiry we realised that was Moina. The B and B is in the form of little cottages behind the tavern. The rooms were large and well furnished but there was no view to speak of. Breakfast was provided in the room and one had... More

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... More
