“Nice spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

As soon as we arrived, it started to snow! The cabin was clean and comfortable although did find the bunks tight for teenagers and adults to sleep and move around comfortably. Not sure how warm you would be in the middle of winter. Great location and easy to find. We thought we would have an open fire, but disappointingly had a electric heater

The discovery cabins were clean and warm with simple cooking facilities and a bathroom. Decor was basic, but we were happy with the cabin as it was a clean and comfortable stay and we were up early for a hike in the morning.

Great cabins with a very good range of facilities and equipment - much larger than regular cabins and with very good bedding etc. They do have coffee plungers in the cabin!

Heating was very good and could enjoy the gas "open" fire.

A lot of wildlife around the park and lots of native bush.

Staff very friendly and there is a very well stocked shop/store.

Park is opposite the main visitor centre and therefore can use the free very regular shuttle bus offered by the Cradle Mountain National Park.

Would stay here again.

We stayed in a self contained cabin at Cradle Mountain Park. It was clean and comfortable and great value. Walking distance to hop on the coach into the national park and yours pickup from the office.

Booked a standard cabin for one night and ended up with a 6-berth. Not a problem for the two of us as we could shut off the extra berths. The facilities in cabin is quite good, especially for self cooking. TV was OK but restricted in the channels available. Room heating was adequate as was the showers. Place was covered in snow but the roads were kept clear by the company snow-plow. Staff were very helpful.

Booked a standard cabin for one night. The facilities in cabin is quite good, especially for who wanna self cooking. However, the TV was weird, which only had one channel and the channel info was totally wrong. And only one thing we were not satisfied, which the entrance of our cabin was covered by water and we did not have place to stand to load our bags. Room was pretty warm and hot water was good.

This is our 3rd stay with them and can not fault it .
Loads of snow! the owner was very happy to help clear the road around the park for his customers ( think he LOVED getting in his 4wd to scrape the road.

Stayed in a newer cabin ( 5 berth )
Highly recommend these cabins as they are a bit more modern then the others.
