Make sure you stock up on snacks and drinks in Deloriane if coming from Launceston, as the costs are high at Peppers and limited choice. The food options are a bistro or fancy restaurant, both v tasty, but do hit the hip pocket somewhat.

Nice place but a bit tired. Room was clean and warm but main hotel needs update. Very expensive but has monopoly in the area.

Beautiful accommodation in a beautiful part of the world. We spent Christmas here and it was just perfect. Super close to all the great sights in the national park, with a bus stop just across the road and some excellent walks starting from the lodge itself. The staff were very thoughtful – there was a lovely Christmas bauble in our room when we arrived. The room was modern, comfortable and immaculate, and we spotted lots of wildlife from the balcony. Buffet breakfast was incredible, with a huge range. And we loved having dinner in the tavern and a drink in the lounge in front of the roaring fire. Highly recommend staying here!

Location was great. We saw more wild life on the hotel grounds than on the walks at Cradle Mountain, including wombats, echidnas, wallabies and pademelons. Staff were friendly, professional and efficient. Breakfast was beautiful. Our room was not quite as expected but very clean. Our only negative was the single bed was quite hard and uncomfortable. Apart from that we loved our stay and recommend it highly.

Great location, plenty of nearby walking track options. Limited mobile reception & no tv make for a great opportunity to digital detox. Handy guest laundry with large washing machines & dryers
