Consider Staying Outside of The Mountain

Cindy H TripAdvisor review

Having stayed at Cradle Mountain Lodge twice before and knowing it was a little dated we thought given the now Peppers branding we would be getting way better than what we got.. Very very disappointing when you expect a five star stay after reading all the hype about Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge. We travelled with another couple and both of our spa cabins left a lot to be desired from creaking floors, noisy fridges, leaking shower and running toilet. Pictures make it look good until you actually stay in it. The food in the bar for lunch and dinner was quite nice. Unfortunately the staff were short on numbers and those that were working were under the pump meaning long waits to order food or drinks as both needed to be done at the bar with only one serving. Breakfast was included with our booking. Upon arrival we thought we were on the set of Faulty Towers. The poor staff didn’t know which way was up. The server took our coffee order and told us to sit wherever we liked, no numbers on tables, so we never saw our coffee. The person bringing our coffees didn’t know where to go. There was no fruit, no yoghurt, no bread, no clean plates, spoons, not much of anything really and when we asked they acknowledged us but continued to clean glasses. At one point I observed a chef come from the kitchen and speak angrily to a server, not a nice look. We finally ordered replacement coffees and after some twenty more minutes they arrived. Such a shambles in need of overseeing. The whole experience was very below par for such an establishment, and the prices were high with $679 per cabin with breakfast a complete rip off. On the positive side the location itself was great and the wildlife plentiful. Would highly recommend people look at options to stay outside the park in future rather than spend $$$ for very little. Actually Sheffield isn’t that far and a lovely place.

The communications from the Lodge are highly professional and positive. The reality is somewhat short of the image projected. The 90 units lack any outside sitting area, face South, and the tracks need an overhaul. Wi-Fi is available in the main building but not in the units. Staff are young, enthusiastic, helpful, but under-resourced and largely unsupervised. Breakfast was chaotic with coffees arriving late or not at all, food, crockery, and cutlery running out periodically. The quality of the experience is not commensurate with the price. The National Park experience was well organised and visual environment stunning.

Expensive, but worth it. Lovely lodge atmosphere.

If you are looking for a true lodge experience, then this is the place for you. The main lodge has a big sitting room with big comfortable furniture for just sitting and relaxing. There is a big open fire for the colder months. It reminded me of the lodges in Canada. The staff were friendly and helpful. The cabins were clean and comfortable with a separate sitting area and a wood fire. The bathroom seemed to have been recently updated, it was spacious and stocked luxurious products. We loved it. It was a great stepping stone to the Cradle Mountain National Park, with just a short walk to the Ranger's Station bus stop. We saw possums and wombats around the lodge in the evenings. At over $600 per night, it isn't cheap, but it was worth it.

What can I say! Nearly took out a mortgage for one nights stay. It’s got the market cornered for location but rests in its laurels. The restaurant experience was like Fawlty tower/Gordon Ramsays nightmares. An hour and 15 Minutes for the starter to be told there was none left, changed the order, the wrong one arrived…finally got something! Rooms had no real view but seeing as you only have to walk a few metres to see something I guess that’s mute. No TV or internet (the excuse the scenery is the tv is used) starlink obviously not heard of. Had to turn the fireplace/heater off so I could sleep as it was rather noisy. I would have given a better rating but I’m afraid price and reality do not match. These are $300 dollar rooms max.

Cradle Mountain Lodge is a Fabulous Destination

The lodge sits in the National Park, which has several hiking trails easily accessed by a hop-on-hop-off bus. Wildlife abound, and we saw wombats, wallaby’s, echidna and several bird species hanging out near the lodge. We loved our cabin and the meal selections, and can’t say enough about our experience at Devils@Cradle, where we watched Tasmanian Devils and Quolls have their dinner. Don’t miss the chance to sign up for this great experience. We also enjoyed the spa at the lodge.
