Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Friendly staff and efficient service make Hoys the only place to get snow chains sorted for your Hotham trip.
They fit them to your car in parking bays up the mountain too which is incredibly helpful and included in the price.
Another value add are their operating times which are up until midnight.

An incredibly disappointing experience. Wouldn’t hire chains to us due to the fact our tyres weren’t listed in our cars book. Despite the fact we have previously used chains on our car with the direction of the car manufacturer. Our car has air suspension which allows us to raise the height of the car allowing greater wheel arch clearance and therefore space for chains. Very rude service. Wouldn’t even listen to us with explanation. Certainly wouldn’t use them for any reason if your doing a visit to the snow. Chain hire in bright was much more pleasant at either bright ski centre or Jd’s. Can drop chains the other side of the mountain at the service station from both these places. If skiing on mount hotham. Hiring from hotham central was easy just pre book on the hotham site . Don’t disappoint yourself with hoys.
For any information our Volkswagen Touareg with tyre size185/45/20 take a konig xg12- 265. Hope this helps.

Hoys have year after year provides the ultimate service for our hire needs, both chain (with fitting) and ski gear.
Their staff are patient and knowledgeable. I have once used the competition up the hill at Hotham and there was no comparison.
Thanks to your staff

We were fitted chains on our tyres this morning by a staff member of Hoys at Dinner Plain. He had clearly advised that there would be a Hoys van further down the mountain to remove the chains for us, and did NOT demonstrate how to take them off. We reached the bottom of the mountain without seeing any Hoys van at the chain bay as advised, they were not there. Our drive was dangerous as we could only travel 40kms/h. We reached the bottom of the mountain, and had contact to contact Hoys to come out to remove them. We spoke to Lizzy who was verbally abusive over the phone. The rudest most unprofessional woman, she said over the phone that we are “ignorant” and said that we should have taken them off ourselves and that staff demonstrate how to do this to customers. We were NOT shown, and told there would be staff to assist. Lizzy further added that they had updated their Facebook page re this, and expected us to check their random Facebook page on a mountain where we had no reception. Lizzy then said we must of been distracted when we were shown and was not paying attention.
I explained this is a very poor communication between the hoys branches and this should not have occurred.
When calling to make a further complaint to the 1800 number I was again speaking with Lizzy who was extremely unhelpful and not remorseful regarding the way she had spoken, saying she would call anyone “ignorant”.
Given that they were upset, when returning the chains after being told we had ruined our tyres and the chains, the kind lady at the desk, checked the chains and responded with “they are all good, honey bun” (how sweet) this confirmed that the condition was in fact, all good and not thrown out as told by Lizzy on the phone. Lies!

Rented gear for one day of ski and was amazing. From the super friendly service of their crew to the brand new boots and jacket! It’s worth the money!

Over a weekend as a group of 6 mixed ability skier/ snow boarders we popped into the Harrietville, Hotham central and Jack Frost Hoys shops, as well as meeting the chain service guy on Sunday. We hired great clothing that felt new, and good quality equipment. They were, in each interaction, relaxed despite being busy, polite, patient, friendly and provided excellent service that made the weekend a success. The service began over a month before our visit when they called me to double check that my SUV tires had sufficient clearance for chains, and identified a back up plan should there be a problem with them. Thank you so much.

Staff led by owner Ms Hoys, extremely aggressive and tried to intimidate us into paying $300 extra claiming we damaged their snow chains. They even punched my phone and shouted vulgarities when we refused to be SCAMMED and extorted.

Get your own chains from any petrol kiosk to avoid being cheated by Ms Hoys from Hoys Skis at Harrietville. They have scamming tourist to Mount Hotham for 80 years it seems.

Ok i know you have to carry them by law but we sweltered at Dinner Plain, saw no snow, ice or water on the road and the forecast had no snow for 6 days. Having said that the process of collecting the chains, having the installation explained and then the return of them went like clockwork thanks to the staff. Obviously they have all you need for a ski/snow holiday and their convenient store locations mean they are the ideal choice.

Popped in to hire some gear to take the kids tobagganing. It was at the end of the season but staff were still helpful and efficient, even suggested we check out their snow cam to make sure we thought the trip up was going to be worthwhile. Happy to say it was and felt reassured that we weren't wasting money on unecessary hire gear.

Funnily enough we somehow managed to get given two right snow boots for our daughter but we were able to easily swap one at their Dinner Plains shop with no fuss.

Great service and would recommend.
