Reviews for Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge
This is the perfect location for a couples retreat. We stayed in one of the spa bath cabins with a fireplace in our bedroom. The fire was glowing, with tranquil music filling the room on arrival. A fantastic mood setting arrival. We ate at both the bar and the restaurant. The restaurant was fantastic. Great service and food. The buffet breakfast offers a great choice of food with stunning views The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Plenty of information regarding walks and sites. We walked the dove canyon walk and dove lake walk. Both a must do. Keep an eye out for all the wombats around the lodge.
We absolutely loved our stay at Peppers! The staff were very friendly and helpful as well. We stayed in the King Billy Suite which was absolutely amazing and we would definitely recommend it. The spa bath on the balcony was amazing and so hot and the bed was really comfortable. The fireplace in the middle of the room also added a great ambience. We also recieved complimentary truffles when we arrived and a complimentary cheese platter the next day. There are lots of animals around which is really cute, lots of wombats! If you have the time, the walk to Dove Lake is really nice. We only walked halfway (1hr 30mins ish) before we got too tired and caught the free shuttle the rest of the way, but the walk was very easy. It was all boardwalk, with some stairs and beautiful open landscape. Dove Lake is extremely beautiful and a must visit! The food in both the Highland Restaurant and the bistro were amazing and would definitely recommend the gnocchi at the restaurant and the New York cheesecake at the bistro. We would definitely stay at Peppers again and next time we will try the spa.

We stayed in a spa suite for one night in June. We drove from Lake St Claire which took about three hours Along windy roads, but with beautiful scenery along the way. The hotel is located right before the gates to get into the Cradle Mountain national park so you can't get any closer which was very convenient. The reception is in the main building with a tavern for more casual dining and a restaurant for sit down meals. Our cabin (95) was located up the back of the property looking out to the bush which was nice and secluded. The room was well furnished with a big bathroom with a spa and seperate shower and the room had a dining table, couch and wood fire. The cabins all have parking out the front and a wet area as you walk in which also had a little room with a kitchenette/fridge. We were greeted with complimentary fudge and port which was welcomed after a long cold walk around dove lake. We had dinner at the tavern which offered burgers, pasta and fish and chips as some of the options. The food was good. Breakfast was included in the price and was served in the dining room. It was really nice buffet breakfast with a lot of hot and cold options. Also Asian style breakfast options like congee were available. It did get quite busy but it was manageable. The room also had a balcony which was very secluded and it would have been nice to sit out looking at the stars but it was winter... There is no TV or mobile reception at The hotel or Cradle a mountain National Park. Check in is 2pm with check out at 10am. Highly recommend doing the enchanted walk which is just outside of the hotel reception. Also dove lake walk which is an easy two hour walk with beautiful views . If you are going into the park, you need a park pass which can be purchased at reception. We enjoyed our stay a lot. The only thing that could be improved in the rooms is the heating. If you don't have the wood fire going, it's very hard to heat up the big room with the small heater and even smaller heater in the bathroom.
Good cabins, very good breakfast, friendly staff, beautiful surrounds. A great place. Stayed 4 nights and did 3 quite long walks, followed by spa bath and meals at the lodge. Enjoyed it greatly and hope t return.

A truly fantastic way to do Cradle Mountain. Service at the Lodge is great and the location cant be beaten. If youre into hiking like us, the access to the national park is perfect. Wildlife everywhere, beautiful fireplaces, exceptional food...you'll love it!
