Although our chalet was spotlessly clean, we have never before experienced such uncalled for, inconceivable rudeness by management anywhere in the world where we have booked overnight accommodation.Since our stay, we have viewed a number of responses highlighting paying guests experiencing similar situations and only wish we had looked at Tripadvisor before booking this place. The recurrent themes, relating to... More

The most unpleasant experience we have ever had. This place is deserving of its 3.5 stars however the owner Louise brings it crashing to a 1 star, if that. I can not fathom how an owner of a business can be so rude and condescending. From the get go we felt unwelcomed and felt like we were walking on egg... More

Greetings from a very snowy Central Highlands. The blog states these guests stayed in August 2015, travelled with family and was posted 4 August 2015. We wrote to TripAdvisor stating that both Louise and John were away from their business attending a funeral in Adelaide 30 July - 3 August arriving back late pm, meaning we had no contact with...

We spent a lovely night here. The accommodation was comfortable and clean and well appointed. John was more than helpful and could not be more friendly. Our fire was lit and going when we arrived which was great because it snowed that night. Very comfortable bed and good little kitchen. We were offered chocolates and port on arrival. All in... More

We spent 5 nights at Derwent Bridge Chalets. The Chalets was lovely and warm on our arrival, with welcoming Chocolates and Port and a newspaper in the mornings. Very clean and comfortable. Great Facilities. Very Peaceful Location. Would certainly stay there again.

We had an excellent cottage with a wood burning fire (well heated on arrival) and welcoming port and chocolates. We also had the welcome kindness of John but did feel that sitting outside for ages waiting for 3 pm was both difficult and cold. The cottage was a delight with full laundry and facilities, we felt we wanted to stay... More

The units are nice and clean. The owners very different! John very friendly, his wife (don't know her name, she did not introduce herself) the opposite! Two examples which really bothered us; We arrived 2:15pm for check in on a rainy day. The female told us check in was only from 3pm. I told her we did not know so... More

As stated by many, the owners of this property have the monopoly as there is only the pub down the road as opposition. The accommodation was clean and comfortable but very expensive. We paid $170 for one night and then told the breakfast was extra!! Very overpriced compared to all the other accommodation we stayed at during our 7 days,... More

Arrived finding our cabin with warmth from the wood fire heater and goodies of chocolate and port topped off with lovely ground coffee ready to plunge. Absolutely home away from home. All you need and so clean.

THE spot for a stop. This was our third visit after Bushwalking in the area for 3 consecutives years. Lovely atmosphere, lovely owners (willing to pick up cold wet walkers after their days in the bush). Great cosy chalet and studios - all you could need after a stint in the scrub. We will be back next year.
