Peppers Cradle Mountain didn't disappoint. All I would expect from a Peppers Resort. We booked a balcony view pencil pine cabin which was beautifully decorated with colours to match the environment. The beds were extremely comfortable, good size bathroom and a beautiful fireplace were all within the cabin. The cabin was incredibly clean so the housemaids are to be commended!... More

Do not expect TV or WiFi in your room. This is the place you enjoy the remote experience of a communal lounge with fire and library and an exceptional wholesome nature experience. We stayed in Late Jan and still the fire was a welcome adjunct to our stay. Our dinner dining experience was exceptional in the Highland restaurant, and the... More

We couldn't get enough of the great walks offered at the Lodge. There is something for everyone and you can't get away from the flora and fauna. We saw wombat, echidna, pademelon ( rufous wallaby) and brushtail possum whiie we were here.

Lovely cabins at this Lodge Resort - with balcony overlooking dusk feeding meadow full of wildlife. Also excellent meal in their fine dining restaurant and good breakfast. Cabins are well equipped. Only problem was poor wifi coverage but small price to pay for such a lovely setting - and who needs to be in touch when away from it all!... More

There are a lot of animals around...which was very enchanting. Our room was nice and big BUT there is no TV or wifi in rooms. The only place to get wifi is in their lobby and it was spotty at best...couldn't get on wifi often. Very disappointing. They do have lovely boardwalks for little hikes around the hotel and the...

We stayed 2 nights at the Cradle Mountain Lodge and were comfortable in our room, which was clean but much smaller than we had experienced elsewhere on the island. The Lodge is very conveniently situated for the drive through the National Park to Dove Lake. We were delighted to have our own wombat behind our room from which we were... More

Situated in a prime location just outside the National Park, Peppers does indeed charge higher than normal but this is to be expected when compared to other similar parks worldwide like Yosemite for example.
