I stayed at The Cliffs before starting the Hump Ridge Track, and was utterly charmed. I was the only guest staying the night, and arrived in the afternoon. The owners invited me for a glass of wine and some cheese and crackers, and it was delightful to chat with them. The room was clean, well appointed, and the bed comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was delicious, and prepared me for hours of hiking. Best of all, there is a little path that winds down to the Tasmanian Sea. I went down in the afternoon on a nice sunny day, and was the only person on the stone-covered beach (and didn't experience any sandflys). It was easy to find, and so quiet at night. Definitely recommend!

The rooms are modern and have fantastic views, and the owners are friendly. We stayed the night before walking the Humpridge Track (organised by the track operator) and consequently booked for the night after we completed the walk. However we would not describe The Cliffs as a lodge or motel as the owners live off site. The night before our walk we were part of a group and dinner in town was prearranged . Only negative was our bathroom flooded badly when the shower was used. The night after the walk we never saw anyone - the key was in the door and we were the only people on the site. Having used the shuttle to get there we were without transport - there are no taxi operators in Tuatapere. At $230 per night would only recommend if you have your own vehicle.

Modern studio with spectacular views and delightful hosts. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. We stayed at The Cliffs before and after hiking the Hump Ridge Track and would highly recommend it to others.

The lodge is located on the top of a cliff near the Humpridge Trail. The room was big, very stylish and with a great view over the bay. The host is super nice and very helpful. Only downside if you cannot live without the world wide web, there is no Wifi available. So for me it was a perfect stay. Wish there would be more Hotels/Lodges like this.

C'est un établissement tout neuf et moderne proposant 8 chambres. Celles ci très spacieuses avec coin cuisine et salle de bain séparée et une excellente literie. La conception et l'aménagement est de type industriel, les intérrupteurs sont excellents et la porte suspendue mode grange de la salle de bain est magnifique. Face au lit une immense baie vitrée donne sur une terrasse ou l'on peu prendre un verre sur le banc. A pied l'immense plage est à 15m. L'accueil est des plus sympathique. Il manque juste le wifi mais ce n'est pas si important que ça ...
