Check in at the Tavern
Great place to stay. We really enjoyed it. If you are looking for the chalet as you drive along the road, you won't find them. Look for the Tavern. Check in at the Tavern and they will direct you to your chalet. Spacious room, great shower and comfortable bed.

Comfortable accommodation in great location
My friend and I found the accommodation very comfortable and clean, and excellent for travel back and forth from Cradle Mountain National Park. The check in and check out process was easy and staff friendly during this and also when we ate at the Tavern. Improvements could be made in what is provided in the breakfast basket and it was also not replenished for our second morning, which would have made us feel better for the value for money.

Fantastic venue and very welcoming hosts!
1. Staff were amazing and friendly 2. Bush setting full of wildlife including resident wallabies 3. Spa for weary legs after long hikes
What struck us as we first came into the establishment was the friendliness of the hosts, Matt & Bec. It was our 11 year anniversary and they made us feel really special with a note and wine. Whilst enjoying a vino on their back deck, Matt whilst preparing wood fire pizzas and gave us a taster of 9 hour smoked meat from their new smoker. If you are a fan of slow cooked smoked meat and wood fire pizza, this is for you. We did bring our own food as we knew we would be on long hikes each day. Plunger coffee and take out coffee cups were supplied to ensure we had our morning caffeine fix. The chalet is charmingly country style and spacious. The large spa was super relaxing, especially after two days of long hikes. Bec and Matt were very welcoming and attentive to our needs. We would definitely go back and stay there.

A night in the chalet
A clean comfortable retreat. Basic kitchen extras were a bonus. And a private verandah overlooking the gardens was perfect to share a pizza and a glass of wine.

A beautiful chalet but not very friendly reception
The room is beautiful. The environment is nice and peaceful. It would be better if they have free wifi ther.
We got lost on the way from Launceston to craddle mountain hence arrived the chalet closed to eight at night. When we parked our car at the entrance, a lady knocked our car window and asked if we had made our reservation. After our confirmed reply, she complained that we were late. She had been waiting for us since 6 :00pm and she said we were informed to come before 6:00pm. We were stunned as we didn't aware of such message during our reservation and we thought we might have missed it. So we apologise at once. During our registration, she kept on saying that she need to back home and sleep at eight as she need to get up at five in the morning. We kept on apologise. When asking if there was any food that we could buy from her, the answer is no although we did see cakes at a fridge. We understood that she was in a hurry hence told her that it was ok and we may buy our food somewhere. We were lucky that we brought two cans of soup in the morning as we failed to find any restaurant opened along the road to nearby town. We ate two cans of soup as supper that night. After we came back and checked our reservation, there is no message mentioned that we should arrive before 6:00 pm. When checking the advertisement at agoda, it says the reception open to 9:00 pm. I don't know who should be responsible for such miscommunication, but I would like to have an update of the service time upload to the box named "useful information" of the advertisement so that people can avoid the embarrassment we experienced. Thanks.
