My husband was given a voucher package for two nights with the chef and massages. The owners made it extremely difficult to redeem the voucher which took over 12 months, although admittedly there was a little hiatus because of Covid. We tried to book several times and they were pretty unresponsive and unhelpful. We were told we couldn’t book more than 25 days out from our stay, I guess they wanted to make sure they could get others to stay! I guess they already have the money so don’t care. When we did finally manage to get some “left over” dates (not really what suited us but we basically had to take what was offered), we then had to organise the massages and chef ourselves. Given the amount paid for this package, this should be organised for you. We were advised we would be met by “Des” when we got there, but he didn’t show up. The nest we stayed in (2) was extremely tired and in need of an update. Overall pretty clean but given the views you would expect the windows to be clean. The towels we were given I wouldn’t even wash my dogs in! They left minimal firewood, and the pieces they had were so small it burnt really quickly. Fortunately we found the fire pile outside, but not very relaxing when you have to keep getting new supplies to keep the place warm. We closed the other end of the nest off to try and keep the area we were using warm. We stayed in the African room, which was ok. The bed was comfortable. The bedside light was broken so you risk tripping over in the night. Views were awesome, I’ll grant it that. It’s a bit freaky not having any curtains on the windows. Apart from the lack of privacy, you are woken as soon as the sun comes up. Certainly would be a challenge if you were staying with others. The massages and Chef were awesome, and absolutely worth doing. Overall the whole process of using this gift voucher left a sour taste in our mouths. We were at the point of making a formal complaint before they agreed to some dates for us, still on their terms not ours. I given the amount they charge for a nights accommodation, they seriously need to improve their customer service and amenities. Sorry to go on about the towels, but luxury accommodation should have luxury towels, OMG they were bad!

Unfortunately, the Voucher was purchased on terms of a Last-Minute 20 day out booking only. This was the first and last time we will do such a voucher deal as it was not favourable for the user or for us to help them book it. Nest II has been completely repainted and renovated within post-COVID-19 closures.

My fiancé and I stayed at Eagle's Nest I as our final destination for our R&R holiday in Tasmania. Maybe we had too high expectations of what our almost-$500 a night was getting us in terms of the accommodation itself, but while the views were absolutely breathtaking, there was also a pervading sense that Nest I is showing its age. The dual-shower heads in the upstairs bathroom were exceptionally dirty, the paintwork was patchy, several of the lights weren't working and there were cobwebs left undusted. The revolving couch was a quirky feature but upon doing a "test revolution" it was clear that underneath the couch hadn't been cleaned properly with a little pile of dust and dead flies awaiting. We headed upstairs to inspect the hot tub that we had been waiting for (it was most of the reason why we had chosen Nest I) and...we were greeted with a handwritten note saying that the motor had seized. Obviously it can't be helped if that's what happened however, the lack of communication regarding this item is, frankly, poor form - upon calling the caretaker Des, we were told simply that the website had been updated to remove the mention of the upstairs hot tub, and they were in the process of removing it in order to create an upstairs entertainment space - great. Could we have gotten that information via email, perhaps? A phone call? SMS? Just some notification before we were due to arrive would have been fantastic, if we had known about it beforehand without having to keep tabs on the website I would have made contact to make alternative arrangements. As it stands though, while we enjoyed Mt Roland and the surrounding tranquility, the experience at Eagle's Nest I was unfortunately a bit of a sour taste and not the sort of experience we were expecting for the hero piece of our trip to Tasmania.

Outstanding place to stay. Truly spectacular views, immaculately clean, absolute tranquillity and privacy, simply stunning!! Have never stayed at a more perfect place, and it's unlikely we could top our long weekend away at Eagles Nest II

My husband and I spent 4 wonderful nights here, and we were floored by how beautiful this place is. We were looking for somewhere peaceful to unwind ahead of the arrival of our baby and were not disappointed. There are so many lovely, thoughtful touches and the spa inside and the bath outside were both wonderful ways to relax and take in the gorgeous view of Mt Roland and its surrounds. We enjoyed a delicious meal made by Cynthia in comfort by the roaring fire, and the massages by Megumi the next day were a special treat. We’ll definitely be back one day! Thank you to the owner as well who was warm, friendly and very helpful. Congratulations on creating this gem and thank you for sharing it with us.

We had an extremely pleasant experience at Eagles Nest 2. The owners are very friendly and accommodating The property has 4 bathtubs spa and wood heater, very comfortable and spacious, the furniture and decoration are very individual and have a strong influence from arts and craft. You can see the Mt Roland from every room in the property. The Eagle Nest is located in a quiet place surrounded by nature so you don't need to go anywhere else! Relaxing, spacious, private No doubt when I return to Tasmania I will stay in the same place. I strongly recommend to everyone to have the same experience. Thank you very much
