Tyntynder Lodge
Ranked #1 of 45 Specialty Lodging in Bright
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 28, 2011

We have stayed at Tyntynder Lodge on a couple of occasions. We take our dogs as it is one of the most pet friendly places in Australia. Everything you could want in a self contained 2 bedroom unit. Clean, well equipped, comfortable.

Back gardens are tranquil, street is quiet, 1500 m from the centre of town.

Winter would be wonderful with log fire, summer is sublime with the bbq and outdoor area, autums is awesome with the gardens and spring is sensational with the birds.

Having visited Bright on many nights, Tyntynder is the best

We went to Bright for a long weekend with some friends and stayed at Tyntynder Lodge for 3 nights in two of the cottages. Upon booking we were provided with some great information on how to get to Bright, some lovely places to stop, eat and drink along the way, as well as some recommendations in Bright itself, which was very useful!

The cottages were very clean and well appointed with comfy beds and pillows, lovely toiletries (Molton Brown), a fully equipped kitchen and a cute pot belly wood stove to keep us very warm! Plenty of wood, kindling and fire starters were provided to get the fire roaring!

Tyntynder would also be great to stay at in summer as it has lovely gardens and a BBQ on the deck of the cottage and is very close to the river, which even in winter was lovely to walk along.

We had a lovely stay at Tyntynder and wouldn't hesitate in staying there again on our next visit to Bright!

I stayed at Tyntynder Lodge with a group of friends (9 of us in total - two cabins) for a long weekend.

Four of us stayed in a two bed cabin, with king bed and two singles. It was very cosy without being too cramped, beds were very comfy after a long drive from Melbourne and then a day on Hotham, and the cabins were well appointed with good, clean kitchens, very effective fires and heaters and all the other mod cons.

We arrived late on the Friday night, but it was very easy to find in the dark with the lights on and fire roaring when we got there and plenty of wood and kindling to keep it buring over the weekend.

The kitchen had all the usual facilities, including a great selection of cooking utensils and servery.

The location was great to get to the ski fields (about an hour including stop off for gear hire and coffee) and then also lots of shops and cafes around. If you don't want to stay on the ski fields, this is a great base to explore the area and not have to worry about getting up and down the mountain.

My only tip - if you leave the door to the bathroom closed make sure you wear something on your feet at night so the cold tiles don't give you a rude shock in winter! Hehe!

We have stayed in many properties in Bright over the years – but this one is outstanding in both its location and the quality of the presentation. We had heard about it for years but could never get in because it was always booked. Well it was worth waiting for.

For a start – the street. Quiet and peaceful – very rural feeling but actually still in town.

The whole place is spotlessly clean – they told me they had a checklist of 72 things they had to clean between each guest

Everything you could ever want is here – the kitchen has every bit of equipment you need.

Then there are the gardens – full of beautiful trees with lots of birdlife – black parrots, white parrots - there is even a resident kookaburra that sits in the trees looking at you. You’ve got your own BBQ so we just sat out every night in the garden and soaked up the peace and quiet

We walked for miles along the river during the day – there are beautiful tracks nearby that don’t have cars. That was another thing – they give you this list of where all the walks are and how to get to them from your back gate – really helpful.

I can see why this place wins all the Awards – someone really cares about it and it shows.

Stayed: March 2010, traveled as a couple

My husband and I stayed here for the first time this month. I have to say they are beautifully appointed cottages- the hosts seem to have thought of eveything. Tastefully decorated (no chinz in sight!) and meticulously clean.

We sat in our lovely garden which was very private and peaceful, took long walks and had a fantastic meal at Simones (cannot recommend the saltbush lamb more highly!).
All in all a very relaxing time in a lovely setting.

We're coming back in winter- I want to use the fire place next time!

My husband and I had a lovely stay at Tyntynder with our dog. The accomodation was clean and airy, but very relaxing and romantic. I have loved Bright for years and decided to take my new Dutch husband to check it out. He was so pleasantly surprised that we are now taking his parent back there when they visit in December from Holland. Bright is a pretty town consisting of Mountains, trees, a beautiful river, superb craft shops, lovely restaraunts and warm friendly people. It is always fun to hire a bike and ride around the many bike trails or just explore on foot. Tyntynder is perfectly positioned close to the hustle and bustle, but just far enough away from it all, to have a private relaxing stay.
