food was bad and they did not tell you when booking that you had to pay a national park entrance fee on top of the expensive room fee.....
Superb location. Truly beautiful setting. Start or end point for a range of walks through extra ordinary landscape and bush. Walks can be as short as 45 minutes return or 7 hours or one week, The Lake Cruise is not sufficiently advertised. In one and a half hours you can sail into an utterly magnificent landscape of mountains, plates cliffs, small bays ... and perhaps see wild platypus. Strongly recommend. The people are very friendly and eager to be helpful.
New cabins are being built intended t offer real comfort and luxury. Some of the design works well ... but there are still rough edges. The doors stick, the windows are difficult, the tap over the wash basin is elegant and utterly inefficient ... a mistake. A mistake with the right intention perhaps but still a mistake. Hopefully all of these little niggles will be fixed as the new cabins are commissioned and used.
Our cabins were modern and very comfortable but absolutely freezing when we arrived. May be the heating could have been put on at our estimated time of arrival if not before. It would have been nice to walk in to.
The problem as mentioned above. Also the large lounge come restaurant area was absolutely lacking in any welcoming warmth. No fire, nothing. It was 2 degrees and snowing outside. The girl on for the weekend was absolutely doing her best but she was doing that under difficulty as the place really seemed very understaffed. She greeted us at Reception, she cooked etc. So full marks to her but honestly whoever actually runs Lake St Clair Lodge probably needs to 'sharpen' things up a bit.Tasmania needs you to be a good accommodation option, particularly as you have that wonderful tourism office across the deck and also particularly because The Wall in the Wilderness is such a terrific drawcard for the area....let alone the spectacular walks which are possible from there etc.
It's location. We were upgraded to a spa suite, although the availability of a spa ws really superfluous to our requirements.
For the money paid the room was not made up as it should have been everyday, the rubbish bin was not emptied for the whole time we were there and the room was not cleaned daily. There were no instructions as to how to operate the television. The programme information for the television was out of date and we had to ask for that updated programme information. In addition, there were no instructions how to operate the gas fire i.e controlling the temperature and adjusting the fan output. We feel that the room should have had more cooking facilities because the restaurant was expensive to eat in every night and there was no alternative other than the local hotel at Derwent Bridge which was also expensive.
The white Aussie lady at the reception is very friendly and professional.
1) Pitch black walkways/streets throughout the entire lodging area. Can't even see my own fingers. 2). Toilet seats was not cleaned up - very dirty with urine stains. 3). Need to pay national park fee (AUD23) just to park your car overnight. This is crazy. 4) Not enough firewood in the restaurant. 5) No reception service about 8pm (because it closed about 8pm) 6) Too pricey considering what had gotten.
I liked the way you can walk across the road to the lake. I believe the new units will be a better option than the caravan visitors as it will bring a new level of comfort and leisure to the park. It will be a new beginning then as walkers will not be the only consideration. Please, whatever you do be professional managers with all this and don't do the cheap option.
Beautiful studio room which was very clean. Great bathroom. Staff were very pleasant and helpful (problem with tv fixed very promptly). Spectacular scenery and nature walks.
Room lacking clothes hanging space....nowhere to hang wet coats or clothes. No cooking facilities....could use a microwave and toaster.
The setting was amazing - spectacular lakeside scenery and woodands setting. The room was clean, comfortable and cosy with an excellent heating system.
The reception was not welcoming. We booked for dinner and were very disappointed in the service, the poor selection of wines and the very poor quality of the food. We would never eat there again or recommend it to anyone we liked. We were concerned about reputation damage to Tamania for international and interstate visitors.
The location is absolutely beautiful. There are a number of short (1hr to 1day) walks around the lakes and nearby mountains, so there was no need to carry a tent. I stayed in one of the cabins which was very new, a quite charming. My mini-balcony faced into the trees so I could spot quolls and possums in the evening. The staff were wonderfully helpful, both for the hotel and the adjacent visitor's centre. And Adrian, the skipper of the boat tour across the lake, was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
The only minor downside was the restaurant, the food was a little pricey for what it was and there was no Tasmanian wine on offer. I would happily have paid a bit more for local wine, I felt it was a missed opportunity.
Not been informed of all the costs and the advertising was deceiving.
The location is excellent, although not quite on the lakeside and, indeed, without a view of the lake. The setting is very tranquil, and the new lodges are quite well designed, warm and comfortable.
While the design is quite good, nothing is quite right - there is very little storage space (and none at all for wet clothes), there are no cooking facilities other than a kettle, there is no furniture on the deck, the restaurant is unexciting and the lodge overall is poor value for money. However, these and various other minor niggles would not stop us staying here again.
Fast, efficient gas heater. Lovely comfortable bed. Large bathroom.
No hooks for coats in front entrance. No roof over verandah.
Lodge apartment was welcome luxury after some days walking and sleeping rough as was food choice.
The location was idyllic, the weather perfect, the room well appointed and new. There is everything here for the perfect holiday break.
We had asked for the king bed to be set up as two singles - this did not happen and my friend and I had to share the king size bed. It was comfortable, but we both prefer to sleep alone!! There was used soap, shampoo and conditioner left in the shower. There were some cornflakes left in the kitchen sink. Quality control on housekeeping was not up to scratch and the restaurant was lack-lustre.
The location is excellent.
Although on the surface everything seems like it is in place with well appointed facilities for a fantastic place to stay, nothing is quite right and this creates a not very enjoyable experience for the rather expensive tariff.
