Guest reviews

"It's the first time for my family to go to Mt Hotham for a snow trip. I've asked Andy many questions, every time I can get a perfect response on time . The house is neat. The managers are very kind. It's really a nice place to live for a snow trip. I think I will book Kongoola again for my next Mt Hotham trip."    Xiangming

"The lodge is GREAT! We spent a great couple of nights here. Lovely big kitchen, dining and lounge area to relax by the fire. Friendly staff and other families that were in the chalet!! Would stay again for sure!"      Rach

"Very friendly people, comfortable accommodation, family friendly club lodge!"   Hayden

"Great experience overall. I was greeted by the manager when I arrived, who showed me around the lodge and explained how things work. Everyone was very friendly and I had no issues sleeping, though i would recommend earplugs if you want to go to bed early. They recommend bringing your own sleeping bag, but offer bed linens for a fee."     Ben
