Cradle Valley Boutique Guesthouse rejuvenates your mind body and soul. It is the perfect setting for peace of mind and relaxation. Perfect views to sit back and take it all in. It is all one could ask for and more. 5 star food, excellent staff and accommodation. An ideal place if you just want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.

I found the host helping us on the day to be unfriendly and unwilling to engage my partner when he was asking certain questions. I think you guys should consider putting spikes on the roof or something to deter birds/ rats from making noice. The ceiling is made of what seemed like bamboo branches, which looks appealing but obviously is not sound proof. The roof is made of tin, so before we slept there were either birds or rats that made a lot of noise on the roof and it started again at 4am in the morning, very upsetting because our sleep was interrupted. Additionally, the bathroom basin has no counter space so we had to put our toiletry bags on the floor. I also did not get the room i picked online, why allow guest to book a room if you are going to redirect them to
