Cradle Valley Boutique Guesthouse

The Boutique Guesthouse offers 23 suites, bridal suite & groom’s suite (cottage 2) and cottage 1 on the riverfront that can sleep 9 people. Each suite is tastefully decorated with neutral colours, a creative, timeless combination of old and new. We offer full exclusivity to weddings, functions or conferences, should you book all the accommodation, however you are not bound to book all the rooms.

Rooms 1-13 and Cottage 1

Cradle Valley will block off the accommodation available (excluding rooms 14-23) to the public up until 120 days prior to the wedding, conference or function, giving yourself and your guest enough time to book out the entire Boutique Guesthouse.

50% Deposits are required to secure your room upon booking your accommodation, should we not receive a deposit payment then the room is not confirmed.

Rooms 14 – 23

These rooms are not included in the agreement mentioned (120 day exclusivity offer*) and are open to the public. These suites are separate from the Boutique Guesthouse. These areas offer a lovely setting for group bookings. We have had numerous requests from bridal parties to be able to check in the night prior to the wedding and we, therefore, thought it best to build these additional rooms to assist with this request, should you decide to book these rooms for your wedding/function/conference night or the night prior to your wedding/function/conference then an immediate deposit payment is required of 50% on the quoted amount. This area works on a first come first serve basis and is subject to availability. Should you wish to book these rooms, we advise you to pay deposits immediately to avoid disappointment.
