“AMAZING!!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

I have just spent five nights in this hotel while working with the DSE at the Mt Hotham fires. Working long hours and arduous work, all I wanted to do was have a feed and get some sleep! Not only did the Bright Chalet accommodate this, but were more than happy to go out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible!

I would highly recommend this Hotel to anyone that wants to visit the area! Although I was there to work, I felt like I was on a relaxing holiday while back at this hotel!

The food was delectable and service second to none!

Had a wonderful buffet Christmas lunch with a startling variety of food. There were superb salads, a great selection of meats and seafood, and delicious berries and pudding to finish.

The restaurant was beautifully decorated, the tables had looked superb and the host was very jolly and welcoming.

Will definitely be back. Great value for $85 per head!

The breakfasts and dinners were good but the rooms were not clean with cobwebs everywhere and a dirty old heater in the bathroom and the bathroom was the size of a closet and the basin was old and dirty. And usually u experience noise with customers staying in the hotel but this was awful! The hotel staff were the ones making the noise! If you are looking to get away for some peace and quiet and a clean and sanitised place to rest forget this! Door to their office banging every few minutes by the staff and the noise of them cleaning up after a service! Surreal! We paid quite a bit for it appears just the food now because the stay was not good at all.

WE were a little hesitant to book as there were some bad reviews....but as in any review it is all about expectations. For the price, which included breakfast and dinner you could not really fault the value factor. The breakfast was good, with bacon aplenty, nice muesli, and poached eggs that were fine. Lots of nice breads and fresh home made muffins a lovely surprise. Dinner was home cooked style with lasagnes and casseroles etc but the salads were fresh and the vegies too. The choice of wines was a bit poor and of course no espresso machine but it was not far to go into town for a fix! The rooms were small, but the sheets were clean and the tele big - happy kids. The bathroom was tiny but the shower hot! Probably not ideal for really little or really big kids - bunk beds (safety), one room (privacy). However for Mum, Dad and a 10 and 12 year old girl it was fine. They say the owner is grumpy...he's not that bad and his son was very helpful with our ski hire and clothes fit out. The kitchen staff were very friendly. I think you would be hard pressed to find better value at $125 per night meals included for a family of four.

We have enjoyed yet another wonderful stay at the Bright Chalet. We have always found the staff most helpful and courteous. The setting, atmosphere, wonderful meals and whole ambience is really great. It is a good place for both couples and families. We have even been fortunate enough to be there when we were entertained by a brilliant brass band! The overall cleanliness and comfort are quite special.

Room Tip: Ask for a great view - perhaps at the rear.

Over priced!!!!!! the food and rooms very average. I would rather sleep in my car, also there hire gear is not worth it.. Staff are not helpful, all they want is your dollar and honestly it's just not worth the money. The meals are very basic, not as advertised

When you walk into the foyer and are greeted with rude, this normally sets the bench mark on what to expect for the rest of the stay, and it did.

Booking: We booked the separate apartment Bright Chalet offered as we were after a two bedroom apartment with a separate lounge. On our arrival the rude bearded man told us the girl who took our call made a mistake and it was unavailable, even after we called and confirmed our booking four days before we arrived.

Ski Hire: We decided to use their ski hire and while we were there the bearded man was having a verbal argument with three young girls who were also mislead into what they were getting. On the plus their equipment was of good quality, although they charge $24 for snow chain hire. With their 25% off they are $2 cheaper than other ski hire places in Bright who do offer free chains.

Room: We wanted the apartment they offered so we had a lounge and somewhere to sit around, instead we had to sit on the beds. We did not expect anything fancy, but did not expect a room covered in cob webs and a dirty exhaust fan in bathroom and heater. Although everything needed updating, especially the mattress (two singles joined), a good clean would not go unnoticed.

Overall: Unfortunately we will not be returning to Bright Chalet, we thought we were getting something a lot better for our money. Sorry guys but a few manners and a bit of TLC will help you greatly. It will continue to look pretty from the outside everytime we drive by.
