if you are wanting a 5 star resort this is not for you. However if you are looking for somewhere private and cosy this is your place. The welcome on arrival from the beautiful caretakers goes beyond the usual reception. They offer to make restaurant reservations as most mobile phones don't get reception. We were told were to walk to...

We arrived in the afternoon and were meet with a warm reception, a log fire burning In our cabin the facilities were amazing and well kept and presented. We were able to purchase a bottle of local Tasmanian wine at reception, from a reasonable selection to enjoy over dinner. This was a great place to stay with the family and...

The location of our cottage was secluded and quiet. The cottage itself was clean and warm and had everything we needed. Located just inside the National Park, it was very close to the ranger station to catch the shuttle up to Dove Lake. The staff at Highlanders could not have been more helpful or friendly, they even had the fire...

Clean and cozy cabin. Wood fire heater was a treat. We made full use of the well equipped kitchen (We stocked up at Launceston before leaving for Cradle Mountain). Wifi provided was limited to 50MB (one device only) but that didn't bother us.

Cradle Mountain was a favourite place to visit back in the 80s and 90s when the only accommodation was Cradle Mountain Lodge and it had no radio or TV. Since then, there has been an explosion in accommodation, and after checking Trip Advisor. I decided the Cradle Mountain Highlanders Cottages offered the perfect wilderness experience...no radio, no television. The cottages...

When visiting Cradle Mountain 20 years ago pre kids we stayed at the Cradle Mountain Lodge. Our plans were to stay there again this time until we read the reviews of Cradle Mountain Highlanders. We wanted accommodation for our family of 4 (2 girls aged 9 and 11 and 2 adults), and the ability to cook for ourselves if we...

Great place to stay and would recommend to anyone for a get away. Loved the wood fire and the coziness of the cabin. Cabin was clean and the fire was already lit for us upon arrival. The only thing I could fault was there was a 50MB lmit for the internet and it was used up within the half-hour /...

Stayed here for two nights with the winter special. So much good food on offer with no shortage. We stayed in lancelota which was just perfect. Reminded us of back home with a cosy wood log fire. Place was exceptionally clean and immaculate with everything you needed. Brad and the girl at reception were the perfect hosts and went out...

Fantastic location close to all amenities - eg buses up the mountain. Cabins are extremely comfortable, well appointed and the gas fire made everything very cosy. Having kitchen facilities allowed us to stay in after a hard days walk, but there are restaurants close by. Cabins are tucked away, we stayed in Ringtail we felt as though there was no-one...

What an awesome little log cottage. We arrived early but was still able to check in. When we arrived at the cottage the log fire was going and it was very warm and toastie inside. Both rooms had electric heaters in them however we had to turn ours off through the night as we were so warm. There is a...
