Tarraleah Lodge has to be one of Tasmanias finest renovation hotels .
Perched on the edge of the escarpment with wonderful views all around ,a luxuriously renovated 9 bedroom hotel with period features faithfully restored throughout it offers complete relaxation away from the tourist hussle of other spots.
We had only 2 days to enjoy the peace, the walks, the fresh cool air and a wonderful little 9 hole golf course that winds between gigantic eucalypts on a few holes.
Our stay was enhanced by Christine who runs the lodge with perfection ,from greeting us ,to the canapes and pre dinner drinks in the magnificent lodge lounge, to presenting the most beautiful breakfast served in the lodge dining room.
Dinner is in the Highlander restaurant a little way away, its good food in a relaxed atmosphere and with good wine we enjoyed the walk back after in the bracing air.
On our list for a return soon we hope its not booked out as it becomes rightly one of Tasmanias best destinations.

Chris was so hospitable, the room was lovely , the breakfast fabulous, the restaurant food not so great but thats a separate place and venue, the wine great, all in all in wonderful stay........we will definitely go back........

Having left Strahan on Tasmania's west coast, we were expecting to reach New Norfolk to overnight. However, worthwhile stops at Lake St Clair and The Wall required an earlier destination. We turned into Tarraleah on spec and found a great park, well maintained and with friendly staff and excellent facilities. A real bonus was the catering available at the onsite Tarraleah Tavern. Well worth a stop.

We had three wonderful nights in the Lodge at Tarraleah as part of a short trip to Tasmania. The lodge is small, with only nine guest rooms. Our room was very spacious, with a very comfortable king-sized bed, was very tastefully furnished and had a lovely view across the lodge's gardens. We were welcomed by the lodge's host, Chrissy, who made us feel really welcome right from the start. There is a lovely central lounge/library, where complementary drinks and canapes are served in the late afternoon. The bar operates on an honour basis, and there is a decanter of port for guests to help themselves to. A lovely continental breakfast is served in the lodge, with a focus on fresh, local produce. Try the blue cheese with a little of the leatherwood honey!

The lodge is around 50 kms from the Lake St Clair National Park, which we found a very easy drive. Great walks there and stunning views on the lake.

Tarraleah was previously a thriving village , with an interesting history based around the building of Tassie's hydro generation scheme. The entire village is now privately owned and has been developed very tastefully to provide a range of accommodation options including camping, caravan sites, cabins, old cottages as well as the Lodge. When we initially booked we were a little concerned that this would be like a holiday camp; this was not the case at all. The village is very large, is really well maintained and was very quiet.

Dining options are limited; the only restaurant in the village serving evening meals is the Highlanders Arms. We ate there each night of our stay and were very impressed ; the food was good, there were plenty of choices and service was good.

There are some lovely walks around the village. We did the waterfall walk, which takes around 45 minutes. Very pleasant walk; saw Lyrebirds .

Chrissy is just lovely. She has a great deal of history with this property, having grown up in the village. She made us feel very much part of the family, was friendly, offered good local advice, but wasn't intrusive at all. Leaving after three days was like saying goodbye to an old friend. The lodge has remarkable collection of whiskys from around the world. Chrissy is very knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed the whisky tasting with her.

All in all, the Lodge was perfect for our three night stay. We felt spoilt and very special. We thought it was excellent value for money.

We were looking forward to our two night getaway at Tarraleah Lodge. We enjoyed our stay, the hospitality was good but it was not value for money. We paid $798 for a two night package. Firstly, no hot breakfast - it was muesli and toast. A big selection, but if you wanted hot you needed to head down to the cafe (about a five minute walk) and pay for it. The package included canapes and pre-dinner drinks - the canapes were three small bits of food each and one drink. Another small thing was the additional $2 per person (not much I know but it was the feeling) for a voucher for golf - apparently they have to pay GST as well as the golf club paying it.
The Lodge was immaculate - couldn't be faulted. The clifftop spa absolutely beautiful.
