Stayed here last week. Only 37 minutes from Cradle Mountain and $80 for a twin room. Excellent value if you don't want to or can't afford the rip off prices of Cradle Mountain. An old style up,you will not get the 'Glam' of the Cradle Mountain Chalet but if you value old style service and hospitality this is the place. The owners cooked us a fantastic breakfast then sat down and ate theirs with us an chatted.
Waratah is an out of the way town and the pub is a magnificent old Queen Ann style building. Across the road is a gorge with a waterfall.
Do not take any not any notice of the detractor above. That person seems to want top class for small price. I just do not accept the bit about the cleaning closet. Having met the owners I believe it is pure fiction. The hotel is for sale,perhaps someone is trying to turn people away in a bid to drive the price down so they can get it at a cheaper price!
