“Good value for families”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

Took the family here last school holidays. About 4 hour drive from our place. Friends recommended we try here. Have been to Bright several times previous. Lovely setting, lawns to the river. Would be great swimming in summer. beautiful gardens, plenty of room to play and lounge around. Good hosts who directed us to the walking trails. It is opposite the rail trail, wish we brought our bicycles. The place is self contained but all linen is provided, new flat screen TV and large fridge. in all a great place to relax and unwind.

Room Tip: We stayed in a family river view unit.

The good thing about this accommendation is the host is very helpful and nice. They have nice surrounding, with nice view and lake behind the cottage.

We have decide to book this place due to their price is more than the holiday park. So we thought their quality must be better than holiday cabin. But when we arrive, we are a bid disappointed in some areas. The wifi is not very stable. End up we need to go outside the house to use Internet.
The kichen is very basic with only two stoves. Some details like they don't provide shampoo and conditioner. The place is very compact with one queen bed , living room and kichen all in one room. These are the info we are not be able to foresee from their official web site.

The riverview echidna cottage had lovely views and is in a beautiful setting. The main living area has good heating and all the beds have an electric blanket but the childrens bedroom and the bathroom had no heating which is not ideal for young children in the middle of winter as it was extremely cold. The windows had black mould growing on the inside which could be a health issue and really do need to be cleaned.

Great place to use as a base for your adventure of the area as Porepunkah is only 10 minutes out of Bright which is a gorgeous little town with phenomenal views.

Was helped by the friendly owner upon arriving and was directed to our accommodation. Our little cottage was great. Had everything you could need and was clean and comfortable.

Be on the lookout for the sign for the cottages as it can be easily missed.

We had a couple of nights here on our touring holiday - it was a very hospitable and relaxing time - our hosts were very helpful with tips about local highlights - early morning walks around the river and the local bike trails - trips up Mt Buffalo - then back to a very comfortable, clean and warm cabin before a "pick-up and return" trip into Bright for dinner - what a spot!! The great autumnal gardens are a lovely spot to have a quiet lunch. I would highly recommend this accommodation for a relaxing break.

We stayed at Alpine Park and had the most wonderful experience. We found the hosts couldn't do enough for us. The room was immaculate, clean and relaxing. The owners put together a mini tour guide for the area including fabulous photo opportunities.
If you have the chance stay for a week and fully recharge your batteries.

Room Tip: Take some warm clothes and thick sox.

Whilst travelling the Great Alpine Road in Northern Victoria we had the good fortune to stay at Alpine Park Riverside Cottages right near Mount Buffalo, this time of year with snow in the alps it was a spectacular. Your hosts Rob & Sharyn Blom go out of their way to ensure to have a first class experience in a beautiful part of the world. A memorable stay, and we would recommend anyone make it an essential part of their travel itinery.
