A little dusty and neglected but very cosy and practical

  • 3 of 5

The place is in need of a very thorough clean. The amount of dust triggered asthma for a couple of us, kitchen utensils were dirty and grease was dripping from the stove range-hood. Doona's and pillows were stained, around 10 down-lights were not working, the washing machine tap was leaking and game consoles did not work (although this was probably a good thing). Not what you expect for the price you pay. The day before our stay, we were also told that the wood heater was not working because the excess snow bent the flue on the roof - it was such a shame as we were looking forward to having the fire to provide us with that ambiance but these things happen at no fault of anyone specifically. Having said all that though, Nicki was fantastic, she really tried to attend to all the issues above in a timely manner. And apart from the issues, the chalet is very practical and very warm - there were heaters in every room and it was always cosy. Toilets, showers and bathrooms were generally clean (Be sure to bring toilet paper as only a couple of rolls were provided). The spa room is an excellent idea and very relaxing after a day of skiing. The place is the perfect size for 10 people. There were 2 car spaces right out the front door which was very handy. The location is absolutely fantastic - we were in walking distance to bus stop, snow fields, restaurants/pubs, ski hire, etc. The kids loved playing in the snow outside while we kept an eye from inside. The snow experience for beginners and young families is fantastic in Dinner Plain and I would have easily given this place 5 stars if we didn't have so many issues which really wouldn't have taken much for them to be fixed. Would love to go back again if things improved or find another place nearby.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Roberta. I was very glad that you drew my attention to these issues and that we managed to get them all rectified during your stay especially with the provision of fresh doona covers and getting the electrician in to change the bulbs. Obviously I am sorry that you had the issues in the first place. We try very hard to maintain a high standard of cleanliness but rely on guests leaving the house in a good condition as the chalet maids have a limited time to prepare for new guests. I do hope you will stay with us again. Regards Nicki

A delightful stay!

  • 5 of 5

A late review, but better late than never! We stayed here last season in August and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The chalet has all the comforts of home and is within walking distance to all amenities within the village. Great restaurants and ski hire nearby. The only thing I felt could have been improved was the duvet covers - I felt as if they weren't fresh after the previous guests. But those as small nit pickings and easily rectified. The spa was a delightful addition and we enjoyed a glass of wine by the fire in the evenings. We were lucky enough to come when the snow had freshly fallen and was in abundance. Highly recommend The Recovery Room. The booking process went smoothly with no complications. We would definitely stay again.

Blissful summer retreat

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at the recovery room. Summer time up at dinner plain was fantastic as not many people around and still plenty to do. Nicki was so helpful and truly made our stay fantastic! It was great for a group of people and we can all imagine coming back another time.

Fantastic Property to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 10 stay and there was plenty of room for everyone to move around. The built in lounge was a favourite for everyone after a long day on the slopes, likewise the indoor spa.

The heating system in the house was perfect unlike other places, the central control made it really easy to adjust and turn on/off.

This will definitely be our first choice for seasons to come.

Great place for a ski trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a family ski week. 6 adults and 4 kids fitted nicely. Very nice and convenient and comfortable place to stay. A couple of minutes walk from the Hotham Bus, and only slightly further to the shops and Dinner Plain ski lift. Well equipped kitchen. Spa was a nice extra. Parking is a little tricky when it is dark and snowing but OK when you can see. Will be my first choice if staying near here again.
