How better to compliment Stanley than to stay at the cable station!

My partner and I have been coming to Stanley for some time now, and this was our first stay at the cable station.
Upon arrival we were greeted by Charlotte who showed us through the recently renovated cottage. All I could think was wow! This place is beautifully appointed in all areas.

The spacious bathroom contains an open design double shower and deep spa bath, all upon a heated tile floor.

The spacious kitchen is very user friendly with a modern induction stove top.

Unfortunately we couldn't eat at the restaurant due to it being closed, but the fridge, pantry and wine rack is stocked with a selection of complimentary (I believe this is a new thing) Tasmanian produce including cheese, oils, fish, meats, wines and spirits.

Combine these elements with a very cosy living room and fire, and you have one of the best places to stay in the beautiful town of Stanley!

Welcomed by Don with explanations of the history of the Cable Station and looking forward to crays in the wood fired oven along with local wines we were not disappointed. Cudos to the fabulous Charlotte and a smart menu. We had an awesome night of fab food, warmth by the fire and some awesome Tassie wines (Yay to Home Hill pinot!)
Look forward to going back some time or seeing the hosts at the Taste of Tasmania on NYE in Hobart!

A few kilometers out of town, but worth the trip. Take care on the road in - we had to avoid a penguin! We were welcomed by Leroy (dog) and more warmly by Don and Charlotte. Their passion for the tastes of Tasmania makes for a tasty and entertaining evening. Degustation style approach provides an opprtunity to sample a range of delights. Not a cheap meal but one of the best we have had.

We had come across cable station's food at a number of festivals around Tassie and loved their wood fired seafood creations. Their accommodation looked fantastic so we took a family trip from Hobart (see accommodation review).

The restaurant is intimate with some historical knick knacks and a comfy couch which we took advantage of for a break between entre and main.

This is a gourmet restaurant show casing local produce in a degustation style, still gives a choice of main courses. Our kids (8 & 11) are reasonably adventurous food wise and loved octopus with pesto and balsamic reduction in the entre and the mains of braised beef and salmon steak. They weren't so keen on the carpaccio venison or the oysters entre but Mum and Dad were. Don't expect nuggets and chips here.

The crayfish special is spectacular and worth every cent.

Don and Charlotte do a fantastic job and are beaut people to boot.

Highly recommended.

Great seafood, friendly and entertaining service. Innovative menu with local ingredients. They choose the first courses and you choose your main.
