My partner and I recently spent two amazing days staying in the Chalet at the Bronte Park Village. This quaint former Hydro village was steeped in history and has a warm and welcoming atmosphere, even though it snowed and rained most of the time we were there. To touch on concerns of past reviewers, the photos may be a little misleading but it is a bit naïve to expect sterile, immaculate rooms in this environment. This is the rugged central highlands after all. I guarantee there are no accommodation places in the same area that have the character this place has.
The rooms were basic, but very tidy and well maintained. We had all the necessities and if there was anything else we needed the hosts were more than happy to sort it out. We didn’t spend much time in the room anyway as the bar was magnificent! It had two wood fires, pool tables, children’s room and a dart board. They seemed to only serve meals at dinner time and the hosts were very honest about what was best on the menu (in regards to what was fresh and frozen). On our last night there we had the most amazing homemade lasagne and a perfectly cooked steak.
The locals were friendly and eager to give us advice where to go fishing. There is a shop across the road where you can get hot food and almost anything in the way of supplies. It is also near all the major lakes and tourist attractions in the area.
If you’re just passing through it may be hard to appreciate the place’s rustic charm, but as a weekend getaway nothing can beat the fantastic hospitality and cosy atmosphere of the Bronte Park Village. We plan to visit this place again for an extended stay and also hopefully catch more fish.
