Sensational stay with generous hosts! ”

I was picked up by Chris who lives and works at Cradle Forest Inn from the Cradle Mountain Visitors Centre which was 20mins away on a rainy night. I was travelling alone and without a car and this family were incredibly generous towards me. They organised food for me when the kitchen was closed, they ran me down to Cradle Mountain so I could go hiking and on my last day the owner Shane took me 4WD’ing around the local area for a couple of hours and shared some interesting, local knowledge about the area. The cabin I stayed in was immaculate, warm and very spacious. The hardest thing was packing my bag to leave! Can hardly wait to return to the beautiful part of the world.

I had a wonderful stay at Cradle Forest Inn. I stayed in a lovely little cabin and was able to unplug and relax. The Inn is situated in a fantastic area it was a short drive to Cradle Mountain National Park. It also allowed me to take. A drive up from Sheffield to Burnie and enjoy all they had to offer.

A little surprise”

traditional pizza, very good accommodation, quietness

This is a little treasure, very reasonably priced - everything is - the rooms, the food, beer, wine and whisky. Because they are away from the centre of the Cradle Mountain hype - by 20 minutes drive - one feels they are away from tourism central. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable. The only negative - but a positive for us was that telstra still hasn't got its act together sufficiently to provide Moina with reliable telecommunications. So mobile phone contact in their tavern is mostly ok but can be variable in the rooms. We would go back and stay again for sure.

Cradle Mountain Lodge accommodation was fairly basic but really comfortable and clean and great value for money. The staff were really friendly warm and helpful and we felt really at home.

Chat with the chef and he may just cook what you would like for dinner!

After a full day's walk in Cradle Mountain, it is great to know that a good dinner will be ready when you return to Cradle Lodge. The chef may ask you what you might wish to have for dinner the next day, and the dessert will always be something familiar, but with a twist.

Very comfortable bed, fabulous shower, very pretty spot , close enough to Cradle mt, 32 km of a scenic road to cradle. Continental breakfast was nothing special but with a lovely view of the birds. Very convenient to have our car so close to our room. Enough kitchen faculties to manage a simple dinner using microwave. Room was spacious and we really enjoyed our stay

Good rest point before going to Cradle Mountain”

Friendly staff, clean accommodation,

The signage that lead to the entrance was confusing! Instead of Cradle Chalet, it was written as Cradle Tavern, with the words Cradle Chalet in small print below. Had a hard time finding the accommodation and if not for our GPS, most likely we won't be able to find it. We reach around 5-6 and all the food options were closed and we ended up having to eat cup noodles that we brought for ourselves. This accommodation can served as a good rest point if you do not wish to drive all the way up to Cradle Mountain in one shot. The accommodation is one hour drive away from the Visitor Centre in Cradle Mountain.

Great sized accommodation close to Cradle Mountain in pleasant bushland setting for half the price of being on the mountain in a no view room. Cleanliness good, room comfortable though settee had seen better days but slept well both nights, heater worked as did the TV. Meals were basic but tasty this could be an area for improvement in the future. The staff seem to work all day as a cafe as well as looking after guests and being the only restaurant for miles at night but still remained cheerful. Only a short drive to the mountain.
