What a beautiful place to stay. It was so peaceful. We were allowed to hand feed the alpacas and Russell the sheep. The BBQ area was clean and the room spacious. Also quiet enough to meditate outside near their waterfall. Thank you for a lovely bed.

I chose Sheffield because all the accommodation around Cradle Mountain was fairly pricy; and Sheffield was one of the larger towns not too far away, and with reasonable rates (although slightly higher than Launceston and Hobart). There were two motels I found in Sheffield at the same price, and I am glad I chose Kentish Hills Retreat. This motel is... More

We find Sheffield a good place to stay to visit surrounding attractions such as Cradle Mountain the Motel is clean and the gardens with a pergola and BBQ are good.It is a nice quiet place to stay as it is a little bit out from the centre of town but easy walking distance we would stay here again.

Great place to stay and unwind. 500m metres to the township centre.. We had a large room with a queen bed kitchenette and bathroom. Super clean and plenty of room to move around. All the bits and pieces you would need are in the kitchenette. There are only 12 units in the complex so not people coming and going all... More

Comfortable, friendly, good WiFI and a great BBQ to cook dinner is required. Good parking, and only 400m to the heart of Sheffield, The Town of murals. Easy access to Lake Barrington Rowing and Devonport. Mini bar is well stocked and a good surprise.

The Kentish Hills Retreat was a pleasant surprise. We thought it would be quite a way out of town, but only took 10 mins to walk into Sheffield for supermarkets, restaurants, and of course the murals. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well equipped, including microwave, toaster and kitchen equipment. There was a very handy guest laundry. The motel is... More

I stayed here when visiting Cradle Mountain and was pleasantly surprised. The motel is set in beautiful gardens and has nice views to the surrounding country side. It is clean modern and quite and really good value. If you are visiting the North West - this is definitely the place to stay

Well-appointed clean rooms. Friendly staff and the added bonus of feeding the resident alpacas made this an enjoyable stay. Nice comfy beds too. This would be especially suitable for families with children as there were two single beds in the bedroom and a queen in the lounge. A lovely outdoor area with a bbq was available for use by guests... More

We stayed here for a couple nights to visit the Cradle Mountain National Park, and were delighted to find the room per the title and we'll equipped. The only thing I was disappointed was the slow hot shower.

We have stayed here twice now. It is a very clean and spacious place to stay and the owners are very nice to deal with. Everything is clean and fresh and none of those horrible standard motel towels. Well worth the effort to stay in Sheffield. Highly reccomend it.
