We had come across the cable station's yummy wood fired seafood creations at various festivals around Tassie (see restaurant review) and also liked the look of their accommodation.
Our family of four (8 & 11) had a three night stay in the technician's cottage over Easter and loved every bit of it.
Provisions included in your room rate include the normal kind of brekky stuff bacon, eggs, sausages, juice, cereal etc which is replenished daily BUT you are also greeted on arrival with the lovely touch of cheeses, truffle chocolates, red & white wine, scotch and vodka.
Plus you quickly notice it is all local produce.
The three bedroom, two bathroom cottage is beautifully appointed with brand new quality fittings - double shower, double vanity, stand alone bath, heated bathroom floors, full kitchen.

The Cable Station is the ultimate place to go for a holiday. You are only 5 minutes away from the amazing tourist attraction The Nut. The Nut is a big rock and bush covered hill with a chairlift if your legs are tired or you are just a bit lazy. Now back to the Cable Station. The Cable Station is a accommodation 5 star. It has a big enough apartment for a family of 6. I love the Cable Station and would always come back if was asked to.
