WOW! we are so glad we stayed at Tarraleah Lodge! The Lodge is simply superb - loved the art deco feel... we walked in and felt right at home! Our room was stunning.... bed and pillows were out of this world and the 'log fire' added to the ambiance. The bathroom ( and heated floor ) was awesome!
We had the entire Lodge to ourselves.... and after a wonderful meal at the Highlander Arms - we relaxed in the library with a glass of port, an open fire, and wonderful music playing on the CD player... we could not have asked for more -except another night in this delightful Lodge!
We also enjoyed the hot tub experience but forgot the champagne ( know for next time! ).
Kristie was outstanding in her customer relation skills - she was an absolute gem and so helpful - thank you Kristie!
We also enjoyed feeding the Highlander Cattle... mindful of those big horns!
A truly memorable stay in a fantastic spot.

Room Tip: Take time to read the history of Tarraleah - there is a fabulous book in the library of the Lodge...

Never before has a single accommodation challenged my concept of what to expect for the location. Tarraleah Lodge is all that, and more - a rework of a Hydro workers' town into a modern, full amenities experience in the Central Highlands of Tasmania!

We stayed in Lodge Room 6, no open fire, but had a wonderful time. There's quality everywhere you look - from the spa bath to the radio, blinds and bed. Each element is part of the refurbishment, and nothing appears old or out of date.

The Lodge guests have access to the common Library and Lounge, with many complimentary items and an honor bar system for the rest. It's so easy to make yourself at home, or to engage in conversation with other guests you meet there.

As far as a break for our travels around Tassie is concerned, Tarraleah Lodge is the best value opportunity in the area you can have as holidaymakers. Pricey, yet so blissful!

A fantastic little find! we stayed in the lodge for one night with its good size room and fabulous bathroom, extremely clean and comfortable. The high light was the cliff top hot tub a great treat for couples just make sure you bring a bottle of bubbly. Also had a meal at the tavern which was more than adequate. If you are looking for peace and quiet with a bit of romance this is the place for you...we will definitely be back!

The Lodge is fantastic, from the rooms to the lounge to the cliff top spa.
This peaceful retreat is the perfect place to unwind.
Enjoyed the cooked breakfast and also the evening meals in the Highlander Arms.
Kirstie was tireless in her ongoing efforts to ensure our stay was memorable,
even after we managed to leave our ipad charger in our room and promptly mailed it back to us.
We will definitely stay again.

The Lodge is amazing - we were travelling with friends and had it to ourselves relaxing in the Library by the fire after a beautiful dinner at the tavern down the road. The honour bar has all you need . The location is low key and peaceful. Rooms are beautiful and the entire staff are friendly and relaxed. Great place.

We could not fault it at all. We stayed in the lodge and was blown away by how lovely it was.
Dinner was great. Staff very helpful. Very private. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Love that they have all types of accommodation from caravans to lodge

My boyfriend and I travelled to Tarraleah after arriving in Hobart for a week long adventure in Tassie. We chose Tarraleah as the first stop after some very busy months at work. What a great decision. We were in desperate need of some relaxation in a beautiful environment and Tarraleah delivered. One of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in, beautiful fireplace at a touch, amazing bathroom and bath house. A regal communal living area with whisky bar and views caps off the lodge. We slept like royalty and woke in the morning to snow covered grounds. Just magical. Winter visit is highly recommended. The Highlander pub serves some inventive quality food and just a decent Parmigana if that's the mood a diner is in, breakfast is also very good. I must say however, the service was impeccable. Kirsty Ferguson the resort manager was amazing!! What an asset to have her on board. We would have loved to stay longer. I would definitely travel back to Tassie just for Tarrahleah. Thank you Kirsty.

Room Tip: Stay at the lodge for romantic winter escape. Choose the cottages for a family getaway.
