Freycinet Lodge was once the place to stay here on the peninsula. However, the new Saffire Lodge has taken this over, but is also in a completely different price league. So Freycinet Lodge will still be the best option for a lot of travellers. Quite a resorty feel, the main lodge houses the restaurant(very good seafood) looking out over Coles Bay. In general not the sort of place you lounge around your room, although they are very comfortable, as you will be out and about either paddling Kayaks on Coles Bay, taking the walk up to the viewpoint for Wineglass Bay, or out on a cruise for the day.
