“A great spot - awesome views and lovely accommodation”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

We spent one night at Mountain Dreaming between Christmas and New Year and were really impressed.

It's a little hard to find (especially if you don't read the very specific instructions provided with the confirmation) but once we found it we were very happy to find it was right behind the only pub and store open in Mount Hotham at this time of year (that we could find anyway.)

The accommodation was super comfortable and very clean (always vitally important to a good experience for me). The views were amazing and it is literally a 5 metre walk to the pub which has a deck overlooking the mountains and really awesome food! We liked it so much we tried to book another night but unfortunately for us they were booked out but Steve helped us by booking a room at their 'sister' property in Dinner Plain which was also very good.

I would highly recommend this accommodation/food option.

The view from our balcony was amazing. Breathe taking view every morning when we woke up. Everyone was very friendly and accompdating. The food was exceptional. I would reccomend this place for breakfast to anyone. The chef really knows what he is doing! Also had a great pork loin for dinner one night that blew me away. The apartments are very central and it is extremely easy to get around the mountain from here. I would highly recomend this place to anyone!

We stay here for 4 nights during August... The apartments were very comfortable and modern... Everything was supplied which was nice. (Nice not having to take your own bedding ect) It was also very confident to be right next door to the hotel for evening meals ect... The meals were very nice and you can even get take away Pizzas there and take them back to your room... The view was fantastic and very easy to access the Big D especially if you have children...

The only problem we found with Mountain Dreaming was to access your room you had to walk through the hotel!!! Which was a bit of a pain with all your skis ect... Would be good if they had another access in and out... We were wanting to leave early but the hotel doesn't open to about 8.30am so we couldn't leave early as we couldn't get out...

Apart from that... Mountain Dreaming is extremely good...

Thank you for taking the time to review Mountain Dreaming Apartments.

In light of your comments we have decided to extend the outside walkways around the hotel proper to give you full access at anytime.

This will coincide with the construction of four new studio apartments on the SE corner of the site.

Thank you again and we hope to see you in 2014

Kind regards,
The team at Mountain Dreaming and The General

We chanced upon this accommodation option when investigating Mt Hotham and it pains me to write this (because it might make it harder for me to book in next season)....this place is FANTASTIC. The accommodation is modern, well designed, well appointed and beautifully positioned with amazing views. The team that have looked after us have been wonderfully accommodating and helpful.....our daughter was horribly ill on arrival and the team broke records to book us in early. Steve and Dan run a really smart business where everyone is made to feel welcome. Skiing and transport is, quite literally, on the doorstep. The chef (I owe him an apology for forgetting his name!) produces a beautiful dinner....I recommend the pork loin, the 5 spice calamari and the gnocchi!
