Reviews for Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge
We stayed for 3 nights in a Pencil Pine Cabin with Balcony. The fire was roaring as we arrived in 0'C temperature after driving through light snow. The reception staff (Jarrod) was delightful and filled us with all of the required information, happily taking our booking for dinner in the Highland Restaurant. Cabin placed a short stroll from the main building. Room was spacious, comfortable and well stocked with towels and toiletries etc. The shower here is the BEST we have had in sometime in accommodation, we used it more than we usually would.....several times a day. The bed was comfortable and linen adequate. The balcony offered great views and sliding screen meant we could let some fresh air in as needed. Location to Dove Lake/Cradle Mountain is what makes it that much more special. The onsite Tavern and Restaurant are of high quality. We cannot fault this place. The Buffet Breakfast offered a selection we have not seen before including corn fritters and french toast....the best smoked salmon and berry yoghurt! Potential guests need to be reminded there is no TV in rooms, no WiFi in rooms and hot spot internet, at best is hit and miss. For us this didn't present a problem. The only negatives and they are small ones.....housekeeping only get to rooms late in the day....on our second day we requested an early service, only to return to find it not done. The onsite Boutique is lovely, but on our first visit, one staff member was a bit rude and dismissive........which really did not reflect the rest of the staff onsite. Special mention to Jarrod, Brodie (Restaurant) and Eve (we think,,,trainee) (Restaurant). Great stay, we will be back. Fabulous life long memories.

Well located at the doorstep into the Park a 5 minute walk from Rangers station bus stop into park. Very large and comfortable room with slow combustion wood fire (way hot!!), spa in a lovely large bathroom. It's what you's expect for what you're paying. Well lit paths for walking to the(over)priced restaurant at night. Enjoyed our stay here.

Beautiful lodge room, large, free wi-fi, good shower. The rooms are in cabins, mostly, rather than all in one big building. We were told not to open our bathroom window more than a centimeter or two or possums would try to get into our room at night! Very much a wilderness area. Main lodge building has a restaurant and bar plus a nice lounge.

We've been here several times over the last couple of decades (!) and always find it comfortable and predictably decent. Over that time we have stayed in pencil pine cabins; spa cabins and most recently their King Billy suites. The accommodation is excellent with large very well appointed suites including large open fires (Plenty of fire-wood and kindling etc). The KB suites in particular have an outdoor hot tub which is appreciated after a long day of walking. The main lodge has a decent enough restaurant as well as a bar with a bistro service. The Main restaurant is good quality but not particularly special and after a few nights we found the Bar/bistro was more to our taste with a nice range of pub food. One niggle on this occasion was a discrepency between a sign stating there was NOT a service charge for using American express and the insistence that there was by the desk staff. I noted a couple of quite heated discussions going on about it. Management needs to get that sorted out! Overall - if going to Cradle Mountain I would recommend staying here. About my ratings/reviews: I rate according to the way the business positions itself in the market. If it falls short - AT THAT LEVEL - I rate accordingly...

We were turned away when we arrived as we we're told the lodge was fully occupied, but we're able to book a room online. Left a sign out to service room, room was not done. Called reception, still not serviced.
