Stayed here with the family in July this year for 4 nights. There are single room and double room self contained apartments - we had a double room. The second room had 3 beds - a single and bunk beds - so can easily sleep 5 people altogether - so great for a family. The first bedroom only has a double bed (not queen bed) so they are 'cosy'. The little kitchen is good for preparing basic meals - there is no oven only hot plates and a microwave. The decor is a little retro - think 1970's/80's - but everything is clean and very comfortable. The view out to the gardens is fantastic.
We used this as our base to go skiing up at Mt Hotham - about an hour drive away. Compared to what you pay on the mountain this was excellent value. This would also be a great place to stay all year round as there is plenty to explore around you, and it is a beautiful, quiet location.
Plenty of families stay here so kids all seem to gather in the games room or play in the ample grounds - so great place for kids.
Only fault was that it would be handy if there was a small oven - there are very few options for eating out. There is the pub and that is basically it - but the pub (Snowline Hotel) food is very good. Otherwise you need to travel into Bright. There are BBQ's on the grounds.
All in all - very good!
