More like a hostel than a hotel
The best thing was the meals. They were generous & very well cooked & very tasty. There is a 24 hour bottleshop in the rear carpark which is handy.
Our stay was not good at all, We started with no Tv in the room & after a complaint they took one from another room & the cables were not right & so I could only get 2 channels & you had to make sure you were not standing in particular parts of the room or you couldnt get reception at all. There was no A/C and of course it was hot so the window had to stay open which looked down onto the beer garden & on a Saturday night the noise continued till 2am. No sleep possible. When you look online it doesnt tell you that the rooms are ontop of a pub. Great for some but not all. The water pressure in the shower was terrible. No tea or coffee in the rooms, they have a tea room down the hall, not very convenient really.

Waratah Hotel
Super quiet area. View of waterfall. Pub.
Quite a small room, old fashioned. 40ish minutes from Cradle Mountain. Not much to do in Waratah itself, including food. Lucky the food in the pub below is good. Shared bathroom is clean.

Very Basic Room and Breakfast
Quiet, Clean
Very basic room - bed and bathroom is clean. No lift - be prepared to carry your luggage up the stairs. No tea making facilities in room. Simple breakfast provided but checkout the food at the pub downstairs. They're great!

Older couple
Cheap, clean, double and single beds in the room.
We were an older couple and had to climb to the second floor via stairs - no lift. Staff carried our bags to the room which was appreciated. It was also very hot and there were no fans or air-conditioning. The beds were comfortable and the carpet fairly new and clean. There are no tea-making facilities in the rooms but a shared sink and necessities on each floor. Fairly good value for the money.
