Great location, amazing views. Located right beside a shuttle bus stop. Restaurant had amazing views if you were lucky enough for a table beside the window.

Centrally located, short walk up steps and roadway from main mall. Great views to the mountains. A very quaint old style feel - plenty of timber. Excellent restaurant. Friendly helpful staff.

Situated in the heart of Thredbo. Older style accommodation, but very clean.

Yes nice that you understand, we are indeed the oldest commercial lodge in Thredbo dating back to 1957 so we put a lot of attention into cleanliness

Happy days for all

The first lodge on the slope and it shows. Whilst the Management do their best to keep it clean, it needs a lot of work. The beds are good and it’s nice and roomy is overall not too bad. The Management are amazing and for a very small fee they collected us from Wildnurmbys after a few too many snapps

Convenient Cosy place in the main village

This ski lodge was one of the first built in Thredbo. As such it is not what you would call "modern" but rather charming and cosy. My Family and I stayed here for a few nights and found it to be comfortable and warm. Great restaurant downstairs that serves European style foods such as fondue ( both cheese and chocolate) giant steak ( try 1kg ribeye "tomahawk" its good but pricey) schnitzel etc. Great selection of european beers. It was very convenient to the shuttle bus just outside the front door. Downsides are that it was a bit dated. Hallways felt a bit cramped and the walls weren't well insulated so we could hear the guests walking outside on the wooden stairs and also the music from downstairs bar at night. There are only three car spots for the entire lodge so don't expect to have your own spot next to the lodge you will need to park in the overnight carpark which can mean its hard to use your car during your stay. The family that runs the lodge were very warm and helpful. The price was average compared to other places in the thredbo village.

Great room, nice staff. We went the week before the ski season. No restaurant, hot water was on the blink. Otherwise nice.
