“Fantastic hosts, food to die for and awesome accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2013

I have just spent the best weekend with my fabulous husband and "besties" at the cable station as a 50th birthday present. Our room presentation was beautiful, the bed was so comfortable. The local goodies in our breakfast baskets and in the cottage were top class. Best of all was the amazing dinner Charlotte had produced for my special birthday treat, from the roasted artichoke soup, fabulous slow cooked beef or mouth watering salmon then to a wonderful yummy chocolate mouse cake for dessert. Charlotte is an amazing chef. The atmosphere in the restaurant was cozy, warm and very inviting. I can't wait till we can come back again. Thanks guys for a fabulous experience.

Room Tip: Try one of the special rooms.

After arriving in the beautiful seaside town of Stanley, a truly unique and indulgent experience awaits at the Old Cable Station. Feast your eyes and stomach with the tranquil surrounds and experience of the restaurant. Showcasing local produce, the oven cooked crayfish was the smash of the evenings dining. We sincerely thanks our hosts for being guests at their magnificent piece of paradise. Highly recommended stop on your trip to Tasmania.

Room Tip: Guest cottage was spacious and very comfortable. Wood fire was magic.

On arriving we were shown to our beautiful King Room which contained a large bathroom with full size claw bath, shower and basin, kitchenette, dining table with 2 chairs and large flat screen TV. A sliding glass door opened onto an outside patio with table and chairs overlooking beautiful Cape Grim Beef cattle crazing contentedly with the blue Southern Ocean in the distance. The king bed was very comfortable with electric blanket and our room had been heated comfortably with an oil heater. Even though the night was cold outside we did not need to use the electric blanket or the heater. We dined in the restaurant enjoying magnificent food prepared by Charlotte, who in our opinion is equal to a 3 hat chef and masterchef. The 5 course degustation was included in our $279 per night tariff along with a breakfast basket, in our room, containing 2 bottles of orange juice, muesli, cornflakes, Red Cow Dairy fresh milk, 6 slices of bread for toasting, Motham Farm delicious Goat Yoghurt, 2 mandarines, 2 different home made jams & vegemite. A selection of 6 different teas were also available and coffee. On arrival Don had placed a 22 Deg South bubbly in our fridge ($43) and we also enjoyed a bottle of chilled Savignon Blanc ($50) from near Penguin. 2 glasses of chilled local Riesling ($11 per glass) with our meal was delicious. If you go without the wine the bed, dinner and breakfast deal is great value at $279.

Room Tip: Ask for the King Room, there is also a spa bath room but only has Queen bed.

My partner and I enjoyed a stay and dine package at the Cable Station. Everything about our weekend away was fantastic. The room was well set-up, modern and clean. We really enjoyed the high quality and locally sourced toiletries, and the lavish breakfast hamper (again filled with locally sourced produce).
Our hosts Euan and Jacqueline were friendly and helpful. The dinner (with wood-fired lobster) was delicious, as was the rest of our meal. The restaurant was intimate, with comfortable couches and a big open fire. And better yet, once we'd finished dinner there was no bill to settle, we could just roll our the door and into our comfy bed.
All in all a great night away. We've recommended and raved about it since.

A lovely stay. Our husband and wife hosts were very friendly and hospitable. We enjoyed hearing their stories of their travels. We dined in the restaurant and it was just wonderful. A meal to remember. We really enjoyed our time here.

I stayed here a few weeks ago and thought it was great!

The property is (as the name suggests) the old cable station that used to facilitate communications with the mainland and has been converted into a small, boutique B&B with only a handful of rooms. The property is set on a rugged piece of land just outside of Stanley which is a bit windy and as a result is quite open and barren land. This makes for a stunning setting, particularly when you sit outside around sunset and stare out into the Bass Strait.

I stayed in the Telephone Room which has a queen size bed and is very comfortable. The room itself is rather large and very adequate for two people. It also had a small dining table and some comfortable lounge chairs, with an outdoors setting for two on the small verandah attached to the room. The bathroom was also spacious, with a separate shower and claw footed bath.

The hosts at the Old Cable Station were really lovely and happy to assist with their local knowledge of dining options and attractions. There is a restaurant in the main building with a very contemporary fine dining menu. I didn't eat there (as I chose to head into Stanley to explore) but I was very tempted by the wonderful menu.

A continental breakfast is included in your nightly rate and this is provided to you in your room upon arrival for you to prepare yourself in the morning. Whilst it is simple, most produce provided is local and of a very high quality.

Overall, I found the Old Cable Station to be a very peaceful, relaxing and intriguing place to stay. I just wish I had of stayed for dinner as well!

Room Tip: The Telephone Room was very spacious and beautifully decorated. Great for a couple.

We stayed in the Postmaster's cottage, which was incredible - we could easily live there in spacious comfort. Our hosts Euan and Jacqueline (and their lovely dog Eriska) were so welcoming and friendly and made our stay a memorable one. Our dinner at the restaurant was spectacular (congrats on the Restaurant of the Year award guys!) and the surrounds were stunning. We loved our stay and will most certainly be back.
