My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights shortly after New Year's Eve. The guesthouse had been recommended by a friend who had stayed here a couple of years earlier.
Positives: friendly hosts, clean rooms, quiet and peaceful location, beautiful garden with a resident Platypus! (we were lucky enough to see him for about half an hour at the end of the day - amazing).
Areas for improvement: rooms were a little tired and old fashioned, breakfast whilst nice was inconsistent; one morning beautiful breakfasts were made to order whilst the next day it was a fairly standard buffet. We cannot comment on the on-site cafe or restaurant as they were closed whilst we were there which was disappointing (due to staff shortages/illness).
All in all a pleasant guest house, but not the best we have stayed in. If the breakfast on the second day had been as good as the first, and if the on-site cafe and restaurant had been open, it might have pushed my review to a 4/5.
Mole creek itself: a lovely quiet little village. The local pub served good traditional pub food. The first afternoon we were there we went on a local walk which was very pretty, and the following day we drove to Cradle Mountain (approx 90 mins by car, but then need to leave your car at the rangers hut, buy the entry ticket, and get a shuttle bus - so allow 2 hours). On leaving to our next location we visited the local Tasmanian Devil Wildlife sanctuary which was mixed - we enjoyed feeding the kangaroos and holding a wombat, and the staff were very friendly and enthusiastic, but we felt it was a little run down.
