Amazing view, close to town and ski slopes

The lodge is in an amazing location overlooking Lake Jindabyne and with lovely views of the mountains. The staff were friendly and willing to assist, going the extra mile to ensure that our stay was enjoyable. Breakfast each morning was delightful, and the atmosphere at the bar in the evening was friendly and warm. Our room was clean, well-presented and comfortable, with a door opening out onto the lawn and allowing us to access the gorgeous vista outside! We will certainly look at staying again.

Very expensive, not much there. Wouldn't go back

The room didn't have a fridge or a microwave so you either had to eat in town or buy (the super expensive) dinners from the hotel kitchen. The rooms also didn't have a TV so don't go unprepared without a book or something! The view is nice but overall not worth the price.

I wasn't expecting the sub-standard of the rooms. There was no T.V., no fridge, no ironing board or iron. The photos on the website did not match what I experienced and considering the amount that I paid for two nights I was expecting at least a T.V. and fridge in the room.

It is unfortunate that your have been unable to embrace the beautiful surrounds and rooms of the lodge. The photos of the rooms on our website are indeed a true representation. We clearly state on our website that there are no TV's or fridges in our rooms, however we do provide an iron and ironing board on each level of the accommodation wing. It is the very nature of our establish in providing a relaxing environment to provide large entertainment facilities such as TV, games room, ping pong and pool table in common areas and keep the accommodation wing relaxed and peaceful. Regards, Management

Great location with Great Views

Pros: Accomodation, great meals and attentive staff
Location: Hill top vista 10 minutes to ski tube, 15 minutes to Jindy.
We were looked after really well, thanks to Michelle and her team. Really enjoyed our family stay, with the lodge feel, great views, ping pong and sitting around the large log fire leaving us really relaxed at the end of a long day skiing.

Clean and comfortable hotel

The location was stunning, the hotel was spotless and comfortable. They also have a useful drying room. Unfortunately this was all let down by a diabolical breakfast (cling peaches in syrup, boxed cereal, industrial bread and supermarket bacon & eggs) and a disappointing selection of drinks at the bar. They didn't even have the local Kosczuisco beer.

Perfect

Pros: Different.
Cons: Fridge in the rooms. That was really the only negative that I can think of.
Location: Easy access to the slopes.
No issues at all. Suits a certain market. Loved the open living area atmosphere with the fires and communal rooms. Our kids made friends with other children which made the stay very low stress! Great service and meals were lovely. Highly recommend this to anyone looking for something off the beaten track.
