What a beautiful, peaceful location! Pristine air and surrounds make for a relaxing and refreshing stay. The cabin was well-appointed, very clean and the bed and pillows were confortable and supportive for my arthritic back problems. Recep However, we were disappointed by the restaurant/cafe options. The website describes a menu of organic choices from a wide range of Tasmanian produce. This is incorrect. Whilst, as a business owner, I am only too aware of the staffing issues being experienced world-wide at present, the menu was so limited there was only one option for my vegetarian daughter and as I have wheat allergy, my options were similarly limited. Lake St Clair is a little way from major centres, but freezers are a pretty great way to prep and store prepackaged or fresh food. Having worked extensively in hospitality, I thought the Management lacked imagination and experience, which translated to the staff. The coffee machine wasn't switched on until 11am and people staying or returning from hikes were desperate for a proper coffee, which, when it finally arrived, was pretty awful. Talking to many experienced hikers who have been there many times, the restaurant and cafe has a long-standing pretty bad reputation and they avoid it. With the sheer numbers of people passing through this facility, it could be a poular goldmine, but is really missing the mark. We actually got in the car and drove six kms to the nearest cafe to get a good coffee!

Our chalet was exceptional in fit out, views and convenience. The lodge is suffering, like others in the hospitality industry, from a shortage of staff so the restaurant was under par. Breakfast was complimentary, but they could not have charged for what was offered. If we stayed again, we’d probably bring food with us and self-cater.

We stayed in a cabin which was little bit dated for the price, but clean and comfortable. You are basically paying for the location - which is awesome
