Very happy two night stay here

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed May 5, 2019
This is a very nice place, lovely villas/ chalets in gorgeous wilderness setting, very hard to fault it. The only down side for us, was the two nights we stayed,the restaurant was not open, which is quite inconvenient at Cradle Mount given the limited options available. Seems a shame too, as people are happy to pay the often expensive prices at such locations as they know there are added costs for the proprietor of the business . Seems this is a strange choice to limit potential income , and happy customers?

Deepest freshwater lake in Australia. Only stopped there for lunch, but there were many hikers, a shop and coffee shop as well as many trail possibilities.

    Highly recommend the cradle mountain wilderness village for a stay in the heart of cradle mountain. I looked at staying in places further out from cradle mountain and so glad I didn’t as it would have been a long windy wet trip in and out everyday where I spent 2 minutes in the car from the wilderness village to the visitor center to catch the shuttle bus into dove lake. The village is great especially if you want some time away from the world as once you are in your chalet you don’t see or hear anyone else, very peaceful. The chalet was sparkling clean and had everything I needed. The spa was the best part, having that after a big day of hiking was amazing for tired muscles. The big bed was super comfy making it hard to leave. Service at reception was fast and friendly. Will definitely stay here again when I come back.

    We stayed in a 2 bedroom chalet with another couple close to the reception block. It was very comfortable with 2 queen size beds. The kitchen/dinning/lounge area was quite big with good size windows, and sliding doors onto a small deck. Looking out the windows was just like looking at a nature picture, the bush is so close to you. Also the bonus to view wildlife up so close and personal. Its only a short walk to the visitor centre or a 2 minute drive. We enjoyed dinner at the restaurant and a couple of drinks in their lounge area. Would recommend to stay here on your visit to cradle mountain.

    Room tip: Chalet No 1,2 or 3 were the closest to the reception/restaurant/cafe areas.

    We picked a spa cottage and could not have been happier, surrounded by wilderness, we could only see another cottage through 1 window of the many in the room. It felt truly private. The room included both an electric heater and a gas fireplace, so on a cold and windy night, it was ideal. Combine that with the 2 person spa with an outlook into the wilderness and it was like heaven.

    We ate at the Hellyer restaurant in the main building and had 3 share plates, and definitely left feeling satisfied.

    Overall a top experience even though we visited at a less than ideal time of year to really take advantage of all that was on offer.

    Room tip: Go for the spa cottage

    We spent two nights in one of the chalet/cabins during the Easter long weekend. It was perfect for a couple to enjoy quality alone time. Modern, clean, fully equipped kitchen and cozy gas log fire. The kingsize bed and pillows were very comfortable and an electric underlay for when it gets really cold there. You can buy breakfast baskets from their little store, but we took a little walk to the store next door and chose exactly want we wanted there. We should have probably done the same for dinner as the restaurant on the premises is quite expensive and nothing special about the food. The Visitors Centre is almost across the road, so very convenient location. We did the Dove Lake walk which took us 2 1/2 hours and we highly recommend. All in all, a lovely relaxing stay.

    Chose this due to it's good proximity to the visitor centre as well as chalet style with 2 rooms for my family. The chalet offered enough room and kitchen was full size.

    The reception staff was knowledgeable and advised places we can access by car after the visitor centre buses stopped running. Location was really good with restaurant within walking distance inside the village itself. Driving to the visitor centre is under 5 mins.

    It was snowing in the park during my visit. The heater was adequate for the whole chalet and parking right at the front helped.

    The village style surrounding very peaceful and quiet. We feel like we are alone even though the next door chalet was close by.

    Due to snow, we did not have wildlife encounter but I was told in good weather, there are plenty.

    Attached few photos here. Overall my family found the wilderness village a good place to stay.
