Full review

Dinner Plain is an extraordinary alpine village with unique buildings inspired by the high country cattlemens huts of yesteryear. We found that it had something for everyone, we stayed in a luxury chalet called Gotham and it had everything - absolutely fantastic. The village has a number of places to eat and drink we liked Rundells for the food and the Dinner Plain Pub for the fun. We bought most of our groceries on the way at Bright and were glad we did as the supermarket prices at Dinner Plain were over the top. The ladies of our party really enjoyed their treatments at the onsen and day spa, it was a little pricey but we did get the use of all the facilities included in the treatment price. There is an excellent toognning and beginners ski slope in the village which was fantastic for the little kids. There is a free bus for the ten minute drive up to mount hotham where there is a fantastic range of slopes for all levels of ability. We all spent some days sking and snowboarding and a couple of days snuggled up in front of a fantastic open fire watching movies from the oustanding DVD libary at the chalet and sitting in the big spa on the deck on bad weather days. There are excellent daycare facilities and a very professional babysitting service in the village, we used both and the kids were very happy. This has been one of our best ski holidays ever.
