Incredible location, most easy lodge to access

Pros: Everything. Breakfast was amazing.
Cons: Kitchen
Staff were beyond amazing and very tolerant of my rowdy group. Manager has been helpful booking further accommodation in various locations. Lodge manager even let me borrow her personal hair dryer, so lovely. The only area for improvement would be better kitchen facilities, we brought with us pre-cooked bolognaise for re-heating and pasta to be cooked and there was nothing to do this with. Even an electric fry pan would have been great. A very drawn out process cooking pasta in the microwave took place haha as I didn't want to waste the 2kg of homemade bolognaise. Perfect spot to take kids that get tired walking in the snow!

Superb staff and location

Pros: Location, customer service
Cons: Cleanliness and facilities condition
Location: Ski in n out to summit lift, very close Next to the day car park n bus stop. N across the road is hotham central n ticketing office Superb location!
Our holiday went very smooth. We arrive late at night n the staff is nice n wonderful, helping us with the check in and luggage. Location is fantastic, ski in n out to lift straight away. N it is next to day car park so very easy to check out n leave the luggage in the car. Cleanliness should be improved, I found hair on the pillow when we went in and toilet is a bit yellow. Shower is clean There is tv in our room but can not received anything, so useless. Better didn't put the tv in there at all.
