“Hidden Rustic Gem”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

When we first approached the compound, we felt it was unattractive covered by shrubbery and fallen leaves everywhere, but then it was Autumn and renovation was going on near the reception area. However the place grew on you, by the time we left we agreed this would be the place for us when we next visit Bright.

It was very quiet with only four apartments on site. Next to each unit was also a car spot. There was a small in ground swimming pool and BBQ area for tenants use.

Our apartment was very spacious with a covered balcony at the entrance fitted with an outdoor setting for four. Inside there was a dining alcove, lounge and fully equipped kitchen in an open plan design. The main bedroom had a king size bed, built-in wardrobe, dresser and a small flat screen TV. The second bedroom had 2 single beds and a built-in wardrobe too. In the living area there was a large flat screen TV and DVD player. A reverse cycle air conditioner on the wall provided heating/cooling as required. The toilet was separate from the bathroom which had a shower recess, wash basin but no bath tub. Also in there were the laundry facilities: washing machine, dryer and trough. Overall a very cozy and homely atmosphere for a family or 2 couples.

It is situated on Gavan Street which is actually a stretch of the Great Alpine Road leading into Bright township less than 3 minutes drive away

Highland Valley Holiday Units have recently come under new management and are currently undergoing some renovation work. We were very satisfied with our unit. We had everything we needed including a washing machine and a dryer and two flat-panel TVs (one in the lounge and one in the bedroom). At AUD 770 for a seven night stay, we thought this was very good value for money. As another reviewer pointed out, the main road is quite close, but we didn't find the location noisy. There was certainly very little (if any) traffic noise over night. The units are set in park-like surroundings, with lots of birds. The location is within easy walking distance of the town centre which can be reached via the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail (no motorised traffic) which runs past the back of the property. Just a few minutes away, on the way to the town centre, we regularly spotted kangaroos grazing in the early evening. Bicycles are also available free of charge at Highland Valley. There is free wifi too, but this was not quite within range indoors. However, we were able to get a signal outdoors. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Overall, a very good place to stay.

Room Tip: Some units probably have indoor Wifi reception - might be worth asking.
