“The steak is amazing. Friendly service and there's a Platypus in the creek!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Mole Creek is absoulutely gorgeous and the Mole Creek cafe/ Guest House was perfect for us. The staff were welcoming to our family get together (despite us being a rather loud bunch) and what a wealth of local knowledge! Kept my dad talking for ages.. more coffee for us.
Kids had fun playing in the garden and looking for the Playpus in the creek.
The food was so fresh and tasty.
Dinner.. We had the steak! Mouth watering and so soft.
The guest house was perfect for our little stay in town. Lovely and clean. Highly recommend.

Having read great reviews about this place I was really looking forward to our 2 night stay. I spoke to a lovely person on the phone and she recommended we would need 2 nights to check out the caves and surrounding areas, so this is what I booked.

Having driven, flown and driven again to get there with two children and my Mum we were keen to check in. We had 3 suitcases between 4 of us as we were travelling around Tassie. Having unloaded the car, we walked into the entrance to be greeted by a lady who told us that we had come into the wrong place. We were confused and thought perhaps we had entered the wrong door. No real explanation was given, other than 'you should be with the others, not here - back outside with Paul'.....I asked what she meant and said we weren't with anyone else and she walked off! A man (who I then found out was Paul) realised that she must be confused and after commenting on how many bags we had, told us he'd take us to our room!

The room was very nice, comfortable, clean and we all had a nice single bed each. My 6 year old asked if the teddies on the bed were to keep and she was seriously told - NO!

I don't want to go on a grumble but we were far from welcomed and from various comments made it was clear that children were to be seen and not heard. I'm not stupid and understand that other guests need to be considered so was offended by the way we were made to feel.

The breakfasts that were raved about were average. My children both asked for poached eggs - but they got fried and crispy. I mentioned this to Paul and he said 'oh, I didn't get that' with no offer to replace. Seems children aren't of major concern.

The movie room was freezing with a small heater. Whilst there was a lovely open fireplace we were told that wasn't to be used. The children were told NOT to touch any of the remote controls due to naughty children messing with them previously. So we cuddled up under blankets and tried to keep warm in front of the small heater.

Nice location and a friendly pub just down the road. We decided to have our dinner there rather than in a cold and unwelcoming environment.

Such a shame as the property has been done up really well and if the hosts made you feel more welcome I'm sure it would have been a great start to our trip around beautiful Tasmania.

The owners and staff take this feedback seriously, and accept responsibility for communication that has left our guest with such a negative impression of our hospitality. This is an uncommon response by a visitor to the Guest House, and we hope that with our usual sincere endeavours to ensure our guests of a very happy and comfortable stay here, it will remain a one-off occurrence.

A great accommodation, beautifully designed. Very lovely rooms and perfect backyard. A great dinner and breakfast is served. Good menue. The in-home cinema is unique. Landlord and landlady offer perfect service. Absolutely nothing to complain, we spent two great days there. Only one of the recommend trips (via Eastern plateau, Cressy and Deloraine was not that impressing.

Room 5 was fantastic, unique and very comfortable. Great food, best breakfast of our trip. Quiet and the garden is gorgeous. It has a cinema room and reading room with free tea and coffee. Don't pass by this excellent accommodation.

On the last night of our one month trip we were lucky to stumble across this unexpected delight. A perfect blend of all things good in life, the food was excellent, the ambience, decor, gardens, rooms and service were nothing but the same. The awesome home cinema was absolutely the icing on the cake. We truly did save the best till last!
