This is an honest review and not meant to offend the owner as it's obvious she is very sensitive to feedback she doesn't like, however I feel it is very important for people to have an accurate expectation for holiday accommodation, especially when some people save for a long time to go away and do not want to be disappointed...

I stayed here with a family group and we booked out a few adjoining apartments. I'd read the reviews on Trip Advisor and was a little confused that they were fairly evenly split between "great" and "terrible", so I wasn't sure what to expect. This place is a real mix. On the good side, there are some luxury trimmings that... More

Our second stay at Forest Lodge was just as enjoyable as our first. We were greeted by lovely Anne but Ruby (the dog) was nowhere to be seen. We had to wait until the next day to give her the treats we had brought. Our room was just as comfortable with THAT amazing bed. The beautiful trees were splendid and... More

We've just had our first stay in Bright and the Forest Lodge Chalet (Unit 7) was sensational. Anne met us straightaway and was really great, very friendly and full of information. The bed is soooooo dreamy and very comfortable! The lounge room is large, really accommodating and the leather Moran couch becomes really cozy at night time! Really quiet and... More

We had our wedding in Bright last weekend. Our guests were booked in to Forest Lodge Chalet for the weekend also some stayed an extra night. My new husband and I spent our wedding night there as well. We certainly made the correct choice of accomodation for our wonderful event. All the rooms were beautifully and tastefully decorated, clean and... More

This is our second stay at Forest Lodge, and we found that 4 nights were way too short. Both, Ann and Ian, the owners, were not only lovely people to talk too, but they were so knowledgeable and a great source of information. Their dog Ruby was always there to greet us in the morning. We enjoyed our breakfast outside... More

Booked with some trepidation given the previous reviews and rather vehement rebuttals! Given it was Easter and we'd left it to the last minute, this was all the was available and they do seem to have acted on some of the feedback e.g. kitchen very well equipped, shower now has a big bottle of showergel etc. Outside areas could have...

Thanks for your review. A bit surprised a brand new King bed comes up with only a 2 for sleep quality. And you did mention how well equipped your unit was, I appreciate that, but it is not something new, we have had everything from coffee plungers, as many kitchen aids as I can possibly think someone might need, full...

On arrival, looking forward to four nights in advertised 4star accommodation over Melbourne Cup weekend, we had to double check to ensure we had indeed come to the accomodation described on the website. Unfortunately we had!! The first shock was the very cramped bathroom with a small cube of soap and a prefab shower which one of our party(tallish) had... More

To respond to this.... we advertise as 3.5 star not 4. Unfortunately you chose budget accommodation with expectations of high end accommodation ....and at $90 per night per couple at a peak time this is exactly what you paid for. A powered site for 2 people at the Bright caravan park would have cost you $50 per night.... and you... More

On Sunday 24th June 2012 I took my parents (visiting from Adelaide), husband, son and dog to stay at Forest Lodge. Ian and Anne (owners) and Ruby made us feel very welcome and our unit was comfortable, warm and had everything we needed. The large screen TV was terrific for the tennis! The gardens were divine and the lodge was... More

Thank you so much for your lovely review. It was a pleasure having you here and Ruby is missing Diesel. We look forward to meeting you all again and I must say what lovely manners your son had.

The website photos looked promising, The high price we were charged also seemed to indicate we would have quality style accommodation. . The basis of the deception for Forest Lodge is around the fact they advertise for the larger rooms to accomodate 7 people, BBQ facilities. The largest unit is not fit for 2 adults, let alone 7. The BBQs... More
