Tarraleah Lodge is situated in the highlands of Tasmania. The lodged was originally built for Hydro Electric engineers and directors and is now upmarket accommodation. We arrived late on a very wintry like evening in February 2016. It was not all that obvious which was the lodge due ot the lack of signage but a helpful local informed us we needed to go to the Highlander Arms where they have the key if you arrive late. Once in the Lodge, and met by the very convivial hostess we began to enjoy the surroundings. Dinner was back down the road at the Highlander Arms which was very tasty. Back to the lodge where there was a roaring open fire and port available for a night tipple. The room had the most amazing spa which we enjoyed trying to avoid flooding the room in the process. A heated floor in the bathroom was another pleasant surprise. The next day and breakfast was an amazing spread of everything you could think of. Lots of homemade products like jams and delicious fruits. We then had some delectable cakes packed for our trip by our most amazing hostess and reluctantly went on our way. I cannot recommend Tarraleah enough for the hospitality and homeliness. Treat yourself.

Stayed: February 2016

Went back to Tarraleah Lodge for our second wedding anniversary after our marriage there in 2014. It was just as good as I remembered. Service is still amazing, rooms still luxurious and food still wonderful. I just love this place and plan to go back every year.

The whole town is owned by one operator. Painstakingly and expensively restored to its original Federation and Art Deco style, The place has a great feel about it.
We stayed in the opulent hotel complex originally built for Tassie Hydro management. You can stay in a range of other accommodation from quaint little self-contained apartments through to lower rent rooms in the old schoolhouse though the hotel is by far the best
The restoration architect has fitted out the interiors brilliantly. Complementary drinks and hors d'oeuvres are served in the lounge in front of the fire overlooking the valley. Cabinets around the lounge area display over 100 bottles of scotch whiskey and you can arrange a scotch tasting if you prefer.
Large well appointed suites with incredibly comfortable beds complete the picture.
Food quality in the restaurant was nowhere near up to this standard though okay and service very friendly.

Loved our 2nd visit here, especially the host Chrissy at The Lodge. So nice to be welcomed in pleasant surroundings and given relevant information on the property, dinner and breakfast. Also delighted with welcome drinks and canapes in the lounge. This time we came with 2 other couples. Rooms are truly beautiful, all a little different, with their own character. Enjoyed the honour system with the bar, perhaps a few more selections with wines would be welcomed. We will be back, can't wait to stay again.

A superb place to stay. Peaceful - completely silent at night! Small marsupials and possums inhabit the place, there are ducks and geese on the pond in the village green and interesting bird life. The village is serene and charmingly renovated, the cottages are well set up with much of the old furniture still in them. There are some excellent bush walks in the area, the local pub and restaurant is really good, and a short stroll home afterwards. The staff are really lovely - enthusiastic about the place, and seem genuinely concerned that their guests enjoy their stay. A gem of a place to stay, beautifully conceived and lovingly executed. If you enjoy touring in hydro country, what could be better than an old hydro village? Recycled houses - just one more way to live sustainably.

Room Tip: Cottages all have superb views across the escarpment. Scholars rooms upstairs can be a bit stuffy in hot weather.
