A hilarious dinner show in the Dandenongs

Fancy something a little different for your next weekend escape? You can combine the beauty of the Dandenong Ranges with the comfort of a top class resort and the all-out hilarity of a world famous dinner show when CountryPlace presents Faulty Towers The Dining Experience.

Upcoming events will be held on 21 September, 23 November, 7 December.

Nearly everyone is familiar with the snobbish, manic hotel proprietor, Basil; his domineering wife Sybil; and their hopeless language-challenged waiter, Manuel. In this interactive, improvised comedy theatre show you'll be a guest in the chaotic dining room, where you'll be served up loads of madcap mayhem, along with a delicious three course meal. It's two hours of non-stop gags, slapstick and witty one-liners. This is the show that tours the world, selling out and winning five star reviews wherever it goes.

Don't think your weekend experience is all about the dinner show, though. There's much more in store. You can check into your stylish guest room with views of the gardens and forest from 2pm. You're then free to wander the gardens or use some of the retreat's many recreational facilities, including a gymnasium, golf putting green, swimming pool, tennis courts, and walking trails. Or if you prefer, you can explore some of the local attractions. On Sunday morning you will enjoy a cooked or continental breakfast buffet.

The cost? CountryPlace's Faulty Towers The Dining Experience package is a very reasonable $415.00 per couple, which includes dinner for 2, drinks at bar prices, double/twin ensuite accommodation and delicious breakfast for 2. $110 pp dinner and show only. Why not get a group of your friends together to enjoy all the fun? Groups of ten or more enjoy a 10% discount. You can book online by searching here, or if you have any queries you can contact Ashley on 03 9728 7000 or email at

These will be comfortable country weekends with a comical difference, only 40 minutes from Melbourne CBD. Don't miss out.

Given what went on in the show being a guest in this dining rpom could even be a little scary.

An hysterically funny evening...
If you are a fan of this cult comedy you will thoroughly enjoy this crazy dining experience. Non stop mayhem and laughter ( often at the expense of the diners) as the Faulty team transport you from observer to participant...a fun evening in the beautiful Dandenongs.. Highly recommend this novel and fun filled evening need for a 'designated driver' as you relax in the lounge by the fire after dinner with a night cap and then toddle off to your comfy room down the corridor!

Some of us do not have partners and there is no mention of single person's rates. I'm referring to the Faulty Towers in the Dandenong. Give us singles a break!
