11 km to Perisher

We enjoyed the atmosphere in the grill lounge, the grill was very tasty, the buffet was adequate. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. We were disappointed in the quality of the beds and bedding, they were very tiered and the mattresses need urgent replacement. Overall it’s a very handy location, free internet would be appreciated. Expensive for what you get.

The one day stay was lovely. The staff were very helpful and accommodating and the room was very cosy and warm. I will definately keep this lovely accommodation option in mind next time I am at Perisher.

Hi Nicci, We appreciate your review and love that you enjoyed your time at Ski Rider. We apologise that your room smelt musty when you arrived. Did you let reception know? It is not normal to have a musty smell. We ask that you contact us so that we can look into why that may have occurred. We hope this did not detract from your stay with us.

Convenience with some great steaks

Although it hasn't changed much since I first went there 30yrs ago, the Ski Rider's half board has great food in Guppies Grill (where the food is quality and the serving sizes are generous) and a friendly atmosphere. Be prepared to share your stay with school groups, and the lack of TVs can be a little frustrating when you have tired kids. Convenient location means that whilst you still get some snow, your car is not going to get snowed in.

Thank you for your review and rating of 4/5 for your stay at Ski Rider. Just to let you know that we generally only have schools staying during school holiday periods and where possible we always let our guests know that schools will be staying. As you booked through an online booking channel, it was not possible for us to pass on this information to you prior to arrival. We also suggest that when you travel with children, to bring a device pre-loaded with movies. This allows a bit of 'down time' for your young children in your room after a big day on the mountain. We do hope you took advantage of our free entertainment which is geared toward families during the school holiday period.

Great hotel, great service.

I am a convert! After studying at a dozen different places in Perisher over the years, this is the only place I'll go back to. Shuttle bus, nightly entertainment, fabulous food and great friendly efficient service!

Budget hotel close to the snow

Pros: Staff were great. Great bar with live music.
Cons: Better accommodation.
Location: Great location near Perisher and transport to snow so no need to drive.
Pleasant stay. Noisy when early risers getting up. Woken at 3.30 am! Food basic but plentiful. Rooms very old but clean and warm.
