Great staff and delicious hot breakfast. Although the room was slightly on the small side but the cleanliness and quietness more than compensate for it. I enjoyed my stay very much and will definitely stay here again for my next ski trip.

Room was so small

Room was so small compared to what it looked like in the photos when we booked it. We were shoved in a tiny room in a corner where the entrance was a bathroom. The beds were uncomfortable and the heater was in the bathroom. The checkin time of 4PM is stupid and such an inconvenience. When we were waiting to check in we asked to use the bathroom and were refused as they only had a male bathroom and not a female bathroom so we had to drive elsewhere after driving for 6 hours to use a bathroom. Would not recommend this hotel.

Hello Rebekah, thank you for your review. We advertise on all our websites our check in time is 4pm. We also sent a text message on your arrival date with the time of arrival. We can not help that you do not read the information correctly. We had an extremely busy day with almost all rooms checking in and out, so of course we can't have your room ready at 11.30 Am when you first arrived.

Simple and old school. Staff were fantastic and friendly, however the owner has a list of rules similar to a year 5 school camp. If you are after more discretion around your holiday or trip probably not the best place. If you just go there to sleep and nothing else, this could work for you

Excellent Chalet for our getaway to the snow! Room had everything we needed and was very clean and warm. Excellent common areas with a fire, board games, relaxing lounge area and pool table. Secure drying room provided for all snow gear. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Cooked breakfast every morning was excellent. Would highly recommend this Chalet and will definitely be returning here on our next visit to the snow!

The service is good. The room is a little bit small as the price.

Good Ski Chalet

We felt very welcome by the staff. We absolutely loved the cooked breakfast, such good variety. Only drawback was the smallness of the room, and the TV being up very high on the wall.

Excellent stay

Great hotel and excellent staff. Ula and her team were extremely accomodating. The breakfast each morning was an added bonus and very satisfying when hitting the slopes early. Would happily stay there again.

Tops

Pros: Clean. Friendly. Warm. Quality in house food.
Cons: Reno happening now so general update should make the place more modern. For the money I thought it was great.
Location: Close to town. Walking is a bit of a stretch but only 5 minute drive to shops and restaurants. Lake just down the road. 1/2 hr to Perisher.
Warm, cosy and inviting. Great hosts - Lindsay and Ulla. No food and drink in the rooms is a problem for us with little kids but that is no reflection on the hotel. It was great value and we would highly recommend.
