A great base for exploring Cradle Mountain National Park. Comfortable hotel with lots of wood fires, and large windows to admire the wilderness. Friendly staff, clean, and excellent food. Vegetarian and vegan options on the menu. Relaxed lodge style atmosphere. Visited in summer, definitely looking forward to a winter break.
Wonderful haven in a park that is losing it...
We weren’t too sure what to expect coming back to Cradle after so many years away. The Cradle Mt Hotel staff went out of their way to welcome us. The room was awesome and has the most comfortable beds we have slept in in any Australian hotel. The views from the room into a lovely patch of forest dotted with Waratahs was sublime - it was very relaxing watching currawongs dart gracefully among the trees. And the food - just outstanding, with a great mix of conventional and fusion cuisine. The wilderness gallery next door was beautiful and reminded us of the power of thought provoking art. I wish the same could be said for the new visitor center... far less inspiring than the gallery and the staff were much less hospitable than the hotel staff. In fact we found the whole new entry to Cradle enigmatic. We understand that this is a major tourism destination, and so buses are now needed, etc... but so much of the magic of entering Cradle valley has now been lost in the commodification of the experience. Thankfully once you leave the continuous construction works and get onto a quiet track, the park begins to inspire you as it has always done... and that is what will bring us back to this hotel.
Cosy inviting hotel
loved everything about our stay. Food amazing, clean, and staff so helpful. The museum at the premises was very interesting too. Even though the weather was inclement the hotel was warm and inviting could have stayed longer
Cradle Mountain Hotel is the one for us!
From the moment we entered Cradle Mountain Hotel's front door from its portico, we were made to feel special by Michael at reception. He was helpful, informative and welcomed us from the start. Nothing was too much trouble and he guided us to the best and most interesting things to do on Cradle Mountain .... an echidna and a wombat strolling past our room made our first day! The little bush walk on the hotel's acreage was a walk through what I'd describe as "Camelot". Our room was spacious and clean, and had excellent quality bathroom products. Thank you to all the staff; in particular Michael at reception. We will definitely stay with you again.
Beautiful place very peaceful. Friendly staff. Dinner in bar area very good. Breakfast variety covered all tastes although slow to get a fried egg considering only 15 people in room. Will revisit as soon as we can
