Fantastic in every way

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 31 Aug 2017
We loved White Crystal Apartments. Dennis was able to check us in early so we were skiing the day we arrived.
Apartment 107 was spacious and clean. The kitchen was well enough equipped for most cooking ( next time I will bring foil/baking paper and paper towel).
Easy access to skiing and the supermarket, bars and ski school in the same building.
Some cable TV channels and free wifi make it easy to entertain yourself on bad weather days.
Would stay again!
Date of stay: August 2017
Room Tip: Odd numbers have a magnificent view across the valley.. watch the sun rise !

We've stayed in White Crystal two years in a row and loved it. Love the convenience of this accomodation. Everything is downstairs from our apartment, the grocer, restaurants, ski hire, shops, guest service, adult ski and board classes. Best thing is if I'm in need of milk or bread, I don't even need to rug up to go downstairs to purchase it.

We've always stayed during low peak season because it's too costly during high peak season.

Advice: best organise a porter to help you with luggage because they is no lift to level two.

Great apartment , we stayed with 4 teenagers . Plenty of room. Even a second area with three bean bags and tv for any kids needing there own space to chill out. Three toilets . Two bathrooms . Excellent view. Needs more hot water as we did run out when filling the spa.
Lots of stairs to get there, so you have to be quite fit.

When looking at booking another stay at Mount Hotham we do also have our Absollut Apartments which have an elevator to all levels of the building.

We stayed over the first weekend of September and had a great time. As part of the Hotham Central complex, you don't have to go outside for ski and equipment rental, supermarket and clothing shopping, café, etc. Fantastic.
Apartment 110 was cosy with the dining table removed to provide big, comfy modular lounge seating. Great for flopping in after a day on the piste (or even a night on it). Drying cupboard was a necessity and worked well. No dishwasher in this apartment (back to using an old skillset!) having been replaced with a washing machine in the kitchen. French windows to the large balcony with BBQ probably could have been more friendly on windy days if they had a door handle attached in addition to the top and bottom sliding bolts. It was almost impossible to close behind you when going outside when it was blowing and the existing setup would be difficult for the height challenged.
Staff were friendly and very helpful. WCA would be our first choice on any return to Hotham!

We've stayed here previously and live that everything is at your finger tips
We had an excellent experience at Yama with their fun filled karaoke evening
The dinners at swindlers are reasonably priced - delicious chipotle chicken pizza and mulled wine certainly helped us to relax into the evening
We will be back and although it's only 2 of us we will continue to choose the double storey apartments (sleeps about 6 I think!)

Our room was located right next to the mountain and had the most gorgeous view.
It was clean and spacious and perfect for our short honeymoon stay. The room contained everything we needed and the drying room cupboard was perfect for our things after a day in the snow.

Booking the room was a breeze and the staff from Hotham Holidays couldn't have been nicer or kinder but unfortunately the staff at White Crystal reception didn't have quite the same manners.
The arrival was a little confusing as Telstra reception was down across the mountain but each request from here on in was met with shrugs, confusion or just a simple no.
On our last evening the young girl at reception was quite rude and insisted an issue was just a simple miscommunication with no attempt at apology and the whole event left me wondering, at what point did it become the paying customers fault?
For the high price we were paying I expected more and as it was our honeymoon I am left with a huge distaste for the property and a bad feeling in my mouth. Other venues at the mountain went out of their way to treat us extra special due to the occasion but I can't say the same for this venue.

Whilst the property is lovely- if you are looking for service and friendliness then I suggest you look elsewhere, perhaps Zirky's across the way.

Room tip: Rooms overlooking the mountain are the best! Room 111 is gorgeous!
