Let me preface by saying we had very low expectation for our accommodation; we knew going into it that it was un-renovated. Our only expectation was that it would be outdated but clean and as long as there was a fire we would be happy! We LOVE Eungella, and usually stay at the Broken River Resort but our budget only...

Quaint cabins with amazing views from the front facing ones (Units 1 and 2 I think), they are older style but have everything you need - wouldn't recommend if your wanting a luxurious stay, but for our short weekend getaway it was perfect. Fireplace was great, as we stayed in winter and it was freezing! They supply a small amount... More

Aside from the view from the restaurant this place has nothing to offer (same view also seen from a lookout down the street). We stayed in the motel type rooms upstairs. Dark musty smelling corridors with pipes running along the walls and rooms with 1960's decor. Mostly unhelpful staff who were unprepared to go out of their way to help.... More

We recently stayed in a cabin at Eungella Chalet. The location could not be faulted, being at the top of the range road. The chalet bar had fabulous views over the Pioneer Valley, and the hang glider launching pad. There were National Park walks beginning right next door. It was also central for a driving tour of the Eungella district.... More

Go for the view but eat before you get there, we had chicken soup which tasted like it was straight out of the can with some extra chicken added. Also watery tasteless pumpkin soup at a cost of $13. The saving item were the wedges with sour cream and sweet chilli sauce.

We recently had an overnight stay in the hotel. It was a lovely experience with spectacular views from our window. The hotel is best appreciated when seen in the context of its interesting history. My husband has fond memories of staying there as a child in the 1950s. It is not 5 star and its rates are in keeping with... More

The chalet isn't 5 star, but the rooms are acceptable they are older and a bit musty, but we weren't expecting much more. We found the staff friendly and the food on the hotel was good pub food. The location and views were great

Unfortunately the view didn't make up for the cabin accommodation. I asked for air-conditioning and got the only cabin that didn't. We were the only people staying in the cabins. Payed way too much for a mouldy cabin that hasn't been cared for like it should. The view is amazing but it was really sad that the place isn't what... More

Stayed in an upstairs room with a stunning view of the valley which was clean and tastefully decorated. We had an enjoyable dinner and a drive to Broken River to see the platypuses! The outside of the building and the pool area needs a good facelift but who cares really when you can relax and have a drink under the... More

The chalet itself is a little worse for wear from the outside but lovely on the inside. Seating is available either outdoors or indoors around a beautiful old fireplace. We stayed in a hotel style room and were lucky to have the full view over the valley (room 15B). The room was clean, nicely styled and spacious. The bathroom was... More
