A lovely place to stay, the staff were friendly, the rooms were very warm, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was clean and the shower was excellent. I would definitely return and recommend to others.

Family run with alpacas on site. Lovely gardens. Friendly check in. Spacious room with everything you need for 2 people to cook a simple meal. The electric frying pan (non stick base) was definitley a bonus. Big Tv and heating. Very clean and modern blue/beige stripes theme on furniture. Number 4 is not a spa bath room so cannnot comment on spa. Didn't have he breakfast which is surcharged. Bathroom clean, good quality towels and eco friendly cosmetics. Comfortable bed with electric blankets. Wash your own dishes. We arrived at a quiet time and when there was another guest they were not placed directly next door. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: There are 12 rooms in 3 blocks, so if you want less noise from neighbours go for the end units.

It was our first trip to Tassie and to Sheffield - the town of murals. The experience was beyond our expectation and more. We arrived at the retreat just 5 min from the town centre and checkin was a breeze. The rooms were big with everything you could be offered in a 5 stars hotel, a tea prep area, a double & single bed, hair dryer & iron with a large TV and DVD player. There were abundance of parking bays in front and what we loved about it was the little farm adjacent to the rooms. We met the sheep and alpaca in early morning with beautiful landscape beyond. It just made our day to start with.

Lovely to stay and fantastic location as a retreat to total relaxation. Make sure you sped time to walk around the hotel!!!

Family of 4 - 2 adults and 2 children - stayed for 3 nights while touring through Tasmania. We stayed in a Family Room which consisted of a Queen bed with kitchenette and a separate room with a double bed and bunks, both rooms had TV's. The rooms were spotless and spacious with large bathrooms and great heating considering the cold weather outside. The gardens were beautiful. The kids loved visiting Tasmazia (large hedged maze) and the Tasmania Devil breeding Farm. The local Pub is only a short stroll up the hill where you can enjoy a beer with the locals. A great spot to stay at while visiting Cradle Mountain. Will return.

This motel was a pleasant surprise. The rooms were large, modern, well equiped and spotlessly clean. The room was made up each day and cleaned. The motel was quiet even though it backed on to a major road. The grounds were beautifully maintained and a credit to the owners. Recommend to others as a good base to visit Cradle Mountain for the day.
