Lovely place to stay with extended family. The open fire, spa, sauna and outdoor area made the whole experience very enjoyable. Very comfortable beds and spacious bedrooms.

Poor reception, rude and arrogant! Cabin is clean but cramped. Beautiful location but let down by proprietor.

Beautiful location.

Pros: Great use of space in a tiny area, and AMAZING location!
Cons: Although the beds were really comfortable for the average person, anyone over 6ft tall will struggle as they are a bit short.
Location: Amazing location. So close to the national park, nestled in a beautiful valley and such beautiful grounds.
The cabins are located in an absolutely beautiful valley, really close to the national park, yet not to far from Jindabyne if you need the town. The cabins are a bit worn, yet have updated facilities and are super clean. I especially loved the chairs, BBQ and outdoor fireplaces all set up for each cabin so you can enjoy the outdoors even more.

Hello Ash We are always keen to hear what our guests think. The beds are all standard length though I can imagine that anyone over 6ft tall would be more comfortable if they were not sleeping in the bunks beds

Pender Lea Cabins vs Chalets are still good

Pros: It's cosiness.
Cons: Dated decor but functional and everything worked.
Location: Near to Bullocks Flat Ski Tube. Horse riding is nearby and we didn't get much time to see anymore - we were only there one night.
If you want luxury make sure you select a chalet and not a cabin. The cabins seem to be a shipping crate fitted out in the same way as a caravan. This was a little bit of a surprise but we adapted quickly. The cabins were warm, clean and the staff were always friendly (didn't meet anyone but correspondence was always helpful and useful). Would definitely recommend the cabins for reasonably priced accommodation near the Bullocks Flat ski tube.

The cabin was ant infested and there was a really old sickening smell.

We are very sorry to hear that you were disappointed. We have taken immediate action and had the Pest Inspector do a thorough review of the cabin He identified 4 ants in the cabin and has taken measures to fix the problem. The inspector noted that due to the bush wilderness location and the exceptionally cold winter that we are experiencing he has had a few call outs for the same reason We do apologise for your inconvenience and disappointment Regards

Close to Skitube, Bullocks Flat

Pros: It was very close to the Skitube - we had tea in Perisher before we left for the day and didn't need to go back to Jindabyne for tea.
Cons: Maybe in a few years time the vans could be updated.
Location: It is situated halfway between Jindabyne and the Skitube to Perisher. Skiing and Snowboard activities, also horseriding nearby for summer.
I arrived and checked-in. It was a large onsite van very close to Bullocks Flat and the Skitube to Perisher Valley. I found the queen bed in the separate bedroom very comfortable, but my son didn't like his bed in the hallway opposite the bathroom.

Awful, far from everything!

Nothing like the pics on website! Tiny, dirty, in need of repair. Extremely overpriced for what it is!
