Reception was curteous and friendly. Our unit, "Quoll", buried in a moss covered forest was spotless, the fire was burning on arrival, firewood for the very efficient heater was plentiful, and the atmosphere inside was delightful. The kitchen and bathroom well appointed and linen etc all spotless as well. Daily fire stoking for us whilst we were out walking was a surprise and rubbish removal too, all unexpected services added to the feeling of welcome. We would recommend to anybody happy to be in a private alpine setting away from TV, noise and urban life. Yes the TV was there as was internet but we were there to get away from all of that.

We loved the proximity and how close it was to the visitors centre. We self catered and was able to prepare all our own meals.

Very comfortable cosy cabin in lovely secluded bush location. All the amenities you could need and well located a short 5 minute drive from the visitor centre and the shuttle bus to the National Park. Would definitely stay there again on a return trip.

We loved our self-contained, wooden cabin which was very private (with bushland surroundings), cosy and comfortable. The cabin had a lovely wood-fired heater and our hosts had kindly pre-warmed the cabin prior to our arrival.

I loved the little things like Tasmania lavender bath salts and videos to watch, and I loved that they texted us to tell us our room was ready.

The bath was beautiful after our walk up Cradle Mountain. The bed was extremely comfortable! So much wildlife around our little cottage. Only gripe would be paying $330 for a nights stay and being told to wash and dry our own dishes 😳

Dear Guest Thank you for your feedback. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay in one of our spa cabins in our peak season. It is a great time to visit and experience the long days ideal for long walks, and many of our guests appreciate the soak in the bath afterwards :-) and a comfy bed. We are self-contained accommodation, and so do not provide the serviced apartment housekeeping you may expect at a hotel. It is common practice for self-contained accommodation to request that guests wash and dry dishes but thank you for your feedback on this. We appreciate you taking the time to review your stay We hope you will think of us again next time you choose to visit Cradle Mountain.
