Weary after 6 days walking the Overland Track with cold rainy weather on the first 2 days and with nothing more than a sponge bath and very basic dormitory accommodation, these rooms were like a palace to us! We appreciated that John and Louise collected our motley crew from 5km away at Lake St Clair and the rules of no backpacks inside the cabins seemed very reasonable given our recent trek and muddy boots and unwashed state. We appreciated the welcoming port as we unpacked outside and availed ourselves of the washing and dryer facilities and took turns in the luxury of a shower. There was a warm fireplace, brochures to read, soft inviting beds and plenty of space in our cabin. We walked the 700m to the Derwent Bridge pub for dinner and back. This was an interesting walk back on a moonless night with no streetlighting, so consider taking a pocket torch if you do this. All but one of us breakfasted at the next door Hungry Wombat the next morning. (A cold breakfast is available for an additional $13). John was a very pleasant and amenable host. We would love to return should we ever travel to this part of the country again but hope to see Louise genuinely smile more next time. When you book, note that the tariff is per head not per room. We had a small misunderstanding about this when we invited some extra people to stay who finished the trek after 8pm, who were not originally on our booking, but this was sorted out amicably. I could not complain about John and Louise, who were very reasonable in approaching us for the extra payment.
