Birthday celebration

Feb 26th, 2020

I booked a weekend away here as a surprise for my partner’s 30th birthday in February. I organised the trip via email with the front desk which was on the whole an easy process, however I did struggle to get through on the phone a number of times. The King Billy suite was incredible - so much space - luxurious feel - one of the comfiest beds ever - great deep stone bath - outdoor private hot tub is a total winner - double sided log fire is amazing, loved being able to see the fire from bed - advertised as an evening turn down service which didn’t happen but there was a bottle of port you could help yourself to which was nice - complimentary bottle of water (just 1, could have stretched to 2 maybe for the price per night and fact there are 2 guests?), small piece of cheese (was yummy but quite small for 2 people) and about 4 crackers, 3 pieces of fruit and some lovely locally made chocolates - expensive but on balance worth it for a real treat Food - good hotel buffet breakfast plus you can order poached / fried eggs fresh, plenty of vegetarian options - you get a complimentary barista coffee when staying in the king billie suites - due to ongoing renovations at present there is (I was told) a blended menu of restaurant / bar style food while the more casual bar area is being completed - service was good even when busy with the exception of our drinks being forgotten about one night, quickly rectified by a restaurant supervisor when asked - the soup of the day, chicken schnitty, fish of the day and steak were all delicious however another night we ordered a burger from the menu via room service which was disappointing, dry and fries far too salty - fairly expensive but captive audience as no other options really nearby, though you could buy snacks including things for a cheese board from the on site shop - high tea (only available Saturdays) was a great treat, very indulgent, unusually we were served our scones first (don’t expect to be able to finish everything!) Spa - well worth a trip - the ‘sanctuary’ is a gorgeous area that you can book out as a couple with hot pool, cold plunge pool, loungers, sauna and steam room - massages were good with a nice menu of options, fairly expensive but good February offer of free sanctuary session with 2 treatments Staff - everyone we came across was lovely, friendly and accommodating Overall, great trip with lots of pros especially the proximity to the national park, very close to the shuttle bus route into the park and walkable to dove lake from the lodge (around 8km). Would definitely go back but would probably wait for another special occasion and go for the King Billie suite as the other rooms look dated and still relatively expensive. My one major disappointment was that at no point did anyone acknowledge my partners birthday and the ‘welcome treats’ were a bit sparse, especially as the images on the website seem to show something a little more impressive. Given that this place advertises itself as a luxury destination, and certainly has the price tag of one, I definitely expected something more in that department. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Superb location, friendly and helpful staff, outdated accomodation a bit rundown no Wow from me. Pub meals with boutique prices but hey you have to eat. The night tour was excellent Steve was great and Betty took us there. The drive was a thrill... off you go Betty! The National Park not to be missed TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Brilliant location

Feb 20th, 2020

This is in a fantastic location for the park and local walks so perhaps because it's the only game in town, it has become a little complacent? We stayed in a pencil pine cabin which I would rate as 3/4 star, certainly not luxurious. Only a gas fire for heating and it was pretty cold in there especially as the duvet was too small for the double bed! No wifi in rooms and only limited wifi in the hotel lobby and lounge so I couldn't download emails for 2 days. Restaurant was nice but expensive. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Lots of nice walks around the hotel and Wallabies and Pademelons around the grounds. Handy shuttle bus stops nearby to get into the park for walking so, all in all a good place to stay.

At least once in a lifetime!

Feb 20th, 2020

We are comeback customers in 5 years’ time. Spent 3 nights in King Billy Suite to celebrate our Pearl (30th) Anniversary! We did have a very comfy, tranquil and luxurious stay in our cabin, given the spacious, well designed, and top-notch facilities of the cabin, and the very friendly services of all hotel staffs. The foods of their Highland Restaurant were delicious and mostly local or home made as well. The location of this resort is also perfect if you are fascinating hikers in The Cradle Mountain-St. Claire Lake National Park. Though the price is relatively upscale in the market, we got the true value behind every dollar spent! We are sure to be back again and there will be more visits instead of once or twice in our life time! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Short stay in the mountains

Feb 19th, 2020

Brilliantly located in the Cradle Lake National Park, designed like a ski lodge and the rooms were small cabins scattered around the grounds, perhaps not so good when it is raining. Our cabin was excellent, very roomy, comfortable with high ceilings and a gas fire for those cold evenings. There was a balcony which you could sit on in the evening but beware the insects. Walking back from the restaurant (take a small torch!) we saw wildlife such as ‘joeys’ but no wombats. Breakfast was a help yourself buffet which was fine, we also ate there in the evening, as it was Valentines Day the restaurant was busy, the food was fine but the meal was quite expensive probably due to the cost of the wine! A very enjoyable stay TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
