Guest reviews

"With more of a hostel feel to it, Kongoola Lodge is an awesome place to stay up at Hotham. I was there on a sunday night so it was quiet, but during peak season and on the weekends this would be a lot of fun. There is plenty of amenities, a drying room, a big kitchen and dining area with an awesome view as well as a games room with pool, table tennis and darts. It's just off the main road and right near one of the bus stops. I would highly recommend a stay here and most likely will be back myself."    Thomas

"We had a great stay at Kongoola, comfortable rooms and great strong shower! The facilities were excellent - lots of space for cooking, relaxing and a wonderful view of the valley and region. It was easy to find and very close to the General Pub/Store, so that was handy. Will definitely be back again next year!"      Georgia

"Danny & Cari were the perfect hosts! We had an absolutely fantastic time and to be honest all expectations were exceeded. We are already planning our next trip next year! See you soon."      James

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

"Lovely location just outside of Hotham Heights near Jack Frost. It was great having sheets and towels provided. All services you would expect of a lodge were there. The fire place and view we're gorgeous. Well equipped kitchen."     Mark & Sally
