On route to Melbourne from Sydney we decided to stay at The Buckland Studio Retreats in stunning Bright. We secured studio 5 which is nestled into the side of a hill looking onto a majestic mountain. Our studio was beautifully located, tastefully decorated and well equipped. After a dinner in Bright we settled in with a bottle of local wine... More

We had such a lovely stay here in no. 5! The views were spectacular every day and the modular home was just sooo cute! Sabine and Eddie were very lovely to us, great breakfast and coffee. Definitely be back someday! Only 5 mins from Bright township.

I love this place and am glad we found it. It's 12km from Bright. It's advertised as a luxury accommodation and yes it's pretty luxurious. The bed is very comfortable, heating's adequate, there's a lovely fireplace with a big basket full of firewood and fire starter ready to use, the bathroom is huge with two rain shower (my very first...

We stayed for 7 nights in Studio 5, we picked this studio as it had the full kitchen and we knew after a full day of walking we would not necessarily want to go out for food. Living in a quiet semi rural location we prefer to stay places slightly off the beaten track that are peaceful and I search... More

We came here on a birthday weekend away from Melbourne. The location was perfect, away from the road on a quiet valley just out of Bright, with views of Mount Buffalo. We stayed in Studio 4. This was very well set up. Extremely well designed, with clever use of space to provide storage areas. It contained all that was needed... More

My husband and I stayed here for four nights for our babymoon in studio 5. We were here at the perfect time in Autumn when all the leaves were turning orange and red. We could not fault the studio - everything was clean, amenities were fantastic and that view was just to die for. My husband and I would sit... More

Whilst the studios were spacious the front steps are narrow and difficult particularly at night in the dark as no torch provided. Breakfast was not provided one day and it's 10km to Bright. Even a few provisions in the studio would be better than nothing.Also the studios are not serviced which you would expect for what you are paying.

If you are after a luxury retreat, in a beautiful part of Victoria, Bucklands is the place to be. The balconies of the chalets look out to Mt. Buffalo, and you have everything you need to cook a meal, including a barbecue, and wine glasses! Each chalet is separated from the others by trees so you have privacy. The shower... More

We visited this beautiful area just as the Autumn leaves were beginning to turn, Just beautiful! The Buckland was the perfect place to stay. Peaceful, private and the studios were clean, comfortable and had stunning views of Mount Buffalo from the front deck. During our stay we were lucky enough to spot the resident wombat, were visited by kangaroos and... More

We visited The Buckland for a special occasion stay. As other reviewers mention, these studios are in a beautiful, serene location, with very good amenities. While the units appeared very clean when we walked in, under couches, beds, etc had clearly not been cleaned in some time. The mirror on the back of the bathroom door had also not been... More
