What can I say? We have stayed at Eagles Nest now 4 times (Eagles Nest 1 twice and Eagles Nest II twice) and we will certainly be back. The first time was our wedding night and we have been back every year since.
The last time we stayed there I was still blown away. Despite being there many times before, the view of Mt Roland and the amazing building which is all yours with complete privacy still leaves me very impressed. Des and the crew do an excellent job with genuine Tasmanian hospitality without all the pomp and ceremony but with facilities and architecture I have never experienced before in Tasmania. The attention to detail in interior design and facilities is incredible.
Mt Roland which easily fills the enormous windows is Tasmania's most beautiful mountain, hands down and the last time my wife and I stayed there we weren't alone. We brought our new son, baby Roland, "Inspired" by the view. What all the fuss about Cradle Mountain is I do not understand. This is one of the most beautiful places in Tasmania.
Next time we plan on taking a group of people. The place easily caters for many and we sometimes feel a bit guilty having the place to ourselves. But we soon get over it, sitting in one of the many spas and sipping champagne.
Once when we stayed in Eagles Nest I we read the guest book. They spoke about "all the spas". We had found 2 spas but didn't think someone would refer to 2 spas as "all the spas". Surely this meant more than 2. Sure enough after we searched a little harder outside we found the best one yet!
Eagles Nest is for anyone who is interested in pure indulgence in some of the best accommodation to be found in Tasmania. Des even let us have a sneak peak at the new Eagles Nest III. Another great spot with a telescope! Probably best for a couple or 2 families.
All we need to do now is find another reason to go back.
