Poor lighting in the room. Stayed 3 nights no room service ran out of fresh towels. Bed was lumpy, took a mattress protector off which was filthy dirty and stained. Found multiple scorpions in the room.

We enjoyed the spa and the quiet location. The restaurant across the road was great.

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
We really loved our stay at Cradle Alpine Retreat. So peaceful. The cottage was well appointed and we were super grateful for the pantry items provided. Great shower, comfy bed. Loved seeing the wildlife in the morning and evenings, and it was an easy drive to and from Cradle Mountain National Park.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Solid place to stay
Perfectly appropriate accommodations. The cabins all look a bit long in the tooth but inside everything was in perfect working conditions, clean, and quite nice. I give it an "average" rating because there was just nothing to get excited about. We never saw any management while we were there but key hand-off was efficiently arranged. I don't know if it was broken or non-existent but we didn't have wifi. Distance from Cradle Mountain is about 20 minutes during daytime, longer at night when you have to watch for wallabies and wombats. Really nothing around it, just a restaurant across the road that didn't impress me. Would I stay here again? Sure, without hesitation, but it may not be my first choice
