“Can't be beaten for value & hospitality. A young family's dream!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2009

We are regular visitors to Bright and have stayed in many of the accommodation options over the years. Although not overly fussy, we simply enjoy trying new places and have never found anything so fantastic we have HAD to return.....until now! We enjoyed 7 nights at Viewhill for an amazing price (including extras like wine,arvo tea at local attraction etc), even though our stay fell accross a long weekend. $100 a night for 4 of us was brilliant! Yeah, the units are a little dated from the outside (who cares?), but that was the only negative we could see. Inside they have been refurnished with quality fittings, linen etc and are very clean and comfortable. Bedrooms are also a great size, which meant we weren't falling all over the bub's portacot, as we usually do while away. For people with young kids, this place is a dream! Quality portacot & bedding, highchair, books, .....even the pram!! Bring your kids, clothes and tolietries - that's all you need. Even the laundry powder for the washing machine is provided. However Viewhill's biggest asset are the friendly "can't help you enough" owners. Absolutely lovely and brimming with local advice and hospitality. Half way through our stay they even arrived at our door with colouring pencils and a new colouring book for our daughter! Nice and close to town - about a 15/20 min walk if you are accompanied by a 4 year old on a scooter, otherwise you could easily do it under 10! For families looking for comfortable, value for money accommodation in a good location you absolutely cannot go pass Viewhill. We are already looking forard to a return visit!

We totally enjoyed our two night stay at View Hill. Although it is on the main road going through Bright, the units are well off the street and very quiet. And it's only a kilometer from the center of Bright (try the beer at the micro brewery near downtown). The only noise we heard during the night was a neighbor's dog barking and a trash truck towards morning. The units are a few decades old, but well maintained and thoroughly clean. We were three adults and had a two bedroom unit that suited our needs. The full kitchen was great. The garden area around the units is beautiful and loaded with huge trees and many types of plants and flowers, and there are outdoor tables for dining or just sitting with a drink and enjoying the outdoors. There is a covered area where guests can barbeque. The very friendly and helpful owners thought of everything - cooking utensils, games to play, and even sunscreen and bug spray. We were there off season and got a great rate of $100 per night. A real bargain.

We stayed at View Hill Holiday Units for a weekend away (2 adults + 5 year old). We found the units most comfortable with the convenience of a 2 bedroom set-up. Units appeared to be recently updated with some mod cons such as reverse cycle air-con, bathroom light/heater and quite new bedding. The overall look of the place is a little dated and it has an older type (albeit full) kitchen. Saying that everything worked well and was recently painted and updated.
We would quite happily stay there again. I would rate this property as being above average for the type of accommodation in this range.
The units were very good value for money at $105 a night (including the $10 charge for each extra person over a double). Similar priced properties in this area for this time of year (snow season) were pretty much confined to basic motel type accommodation.
Bright is a really nice boutique type town with lots of local retaurants and small brewery. It's also very convenient to snowfields at Mount Buffalo, Falls Creek and Mount Hotham - especially if you don't want to incur the expense of staying 'on the mountain'.

  • Liked — Convenience to the local area and snowfields.
  • Disliked — Dated lino floor in kitchen and bathroom.
