touring around Tassie on a motorbike, we spent a night at this "Chalet".
Now when i conjour up images of a chalet....this place is not what i imagined.
having said that the night was reasonably good.
A bit of confusion when we booked in, because the "chalet" has multiple wings with different names, and poor old Neville sent us to the right room number, but the wrong wing.
Quiet a relief when we found our room, because the other one had bare beds and a terrible damp musty smell.
No t.v or drink making faciities in the rooms, you had to go to the dinning room for a hot drink.
Dinner that night was very well done. there were 10 of us in a group, riding motorbikes around the state, and we were made to feel very welcome, we all got exactly what we ordered, from a very good choice of food.
A big log fire in the lounge area, kept us toasty warm.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Pedder Wilderness Lodge is located right in the heart of Tasmania's Southwest National Park which is part of Tasmania's World Heritage Area. Recognised as one of the world's extraordinary natural wonders by the World Heritage Commission, it is to be protected forever from human intervention. One tree, which now sits out the front of the Lodge, was cut down in the 1970's before this protection was in place. The great Huon pine, which is about the width of a car, has its rings marked all the way back to the birth of Christ. Our surrounds, from which this great Huon came, boast everything from ancient awe-inspiring landscapes with boulders from the Jurassic period, striking mountains and lush sub-alpine rainforests with monolithic trees which range from centuries to thousands of years old, all the way to the modern man-made Gordon Dam which offers one of the world's top ten adrenaline activities. With accommodation for all types of travellers, Pedder Wilderness Lodge offers a relaxing and warm environment with a focus on fine Tasmanian food, wines and produce. With sweeping views of Lake Pedder and Twelvetrees Range you could not find a more perfect place to escape, explore, relax and enjoy our hospitality. ... more less
