Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge
: aggregate rating: 0/3
I had high expectations for Pepper's Cradle Mountain but was disappointed. I can understand why the lodge is expensive, it is incredibly close to a World Heritage Site which brings it's own distinct challenges and costs. However, I did expect our stay to be more luxurious. We stayed in a Pencil Pine Cabin for $350 a night and it was a very tired and dated room in one half of a wooden cabin. The bathroom was tiny with an old fashioned plastic/fibre glass moulded shower. Room size was in line with a mid market corporate hotel. I would recommend avoiding the food in the tavern, it is very poor and reminded me of motorway service station fare. The food in the restaurant is better, but the flavour combinations weren't great. I had Venison and Strawberry for main and although the Venison was well cooked the dish just didn't work. This is by no means a bad hotel, the staff were lovely. I also wonder if the more expensive lodges represent better lodge experiences. My advice would be don't expect too much, and if you are looking for amazing food and luxury accommodation save your money and splurge in Hobart.

It was expensive, but our couple of nights there are something the kids won't forget in a long time. It's quite cosy, and the setting is very nice; gives a luxury feel.

My boyfriend and I thought we'd spoil ourselves for a night at Peppers. Were told it would be $290 for the Pencil Pine Cabin as it was Australia day, which we agreed to as we thought that we were paying for 5 star accommodation and access to the facilities, as suggested in the brochures. - The bed was hard, we had a better sleep on the mattress of our camper van. - The heating in the room was insufficient. - There were no spare blankets for the bed (most places will have a woollen blanket in the wardrobe) - We weren't supplied with bathrobes (I have been to 3 star hotels that even provide them) - The room was clean, though the towels had stains on them - Limited menu, though the bistro meals were big and satisfying. - The lounges, bistro and restaurant had a warm, luxurious atmosphere - The Waldheim Alpine Spa is listed as a guest service, and in the brochures appears to be a facility that is available to all guests (at least the actual spa, sauna and steam room), but guests, having already paid for the 5 star accommodation and facilities must pay an entry fee on top of all that. Overall Peppers in Cradle mountain, is a huge rip off, and under performs for its rating. Its brochures are misleading, and I think it got its 5 star rating in some fraudulent way. For the money I paid, I feel deeply offended by the costs around every corner there. The Tasmanian tourism industry has become a huge rip off, and it will destroy itself if it continues in this way.

Nestled in the bush, Cradle Mountain Lodge is everything you expect - relaxing, beautiful, with excellent food and a beautiful day spa. We were there in winter and the wood fire and spa made our cabin perfectly cosy. I would go back in a heart beat.

Great if Expensive. We booked a Pencil Pine Cabin for 1 night on their web site but were given a free upgrade to a larger cabin with real wood cassette fire, spar bath etc. It cost $254 for 3 people per night (double plus single bed, with separate en-suite bathroom) which is rather expensive, but a superb smorgasbord breakfast was included, with every imaginable choice of food including smoked salmon and other hot and cold meats, honey dripping fresh from the beeswax etc etc And of course the location is superb if a little damp, with outstanding board-walks around the lake and through the woods. Recommended.
