Friendly staff and service, particularly in the restaurant. The room & bed was really comfy but unfortunately couldn’t sleep as the walls are paper thin. We could hear all of the staff conversations in the hallway at 9pm at night, all crying children, as well as the loud shower pressure of the room next door very early in the morning.

It’s in the snow and surrounded by snow. Great bar lounge area. Good alpine type architecture.

The go for on the snow

Pros: Like a little community
Cons: room maintenance in bathroom
Location: Close to lifts
Really nice vibe. The food was included that meant the value made sense. Heaps of space too. We had two families there, the kids loved it. There was a spa and sauna that were closed for cleaning - I'm not sure if that's the normal.

Thankyou for your feedback. Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Sorry about the Spa being closed we ensure our spa is maintained to the highest standards and sometimes that means we need to close it until our chemical levels are perfect. Once again we do apologies

Nice lodge in the snow about 150m from lifts

Very comfortable place to stay, very nice staff, everything you need right there. Would definitely stay again and would recommend to friends.

Sadly Disappointing

Pros: Location, showers, brekky, friendly staff. Even though the hotel has had it's hey day, I believe there could be plenty of life in it yet.
Cons: Heating, Pillows, gen. maintenance. FOOD FOOD FOOD. Every thing else can be tolerated, but good food at the end of a big day on the snow is critical.
Location: Location is awesome. Great access to ski fields and clubs. Ski and snowboard instructors brilliant. All round ambience, wonderful.
Heating in the bedrooms lacking terribly when you needed it most. Had to huddle under blankets to stay warm. The toilet in our room was broken so that you couldn't sit on the seat, believe me, i know it sounds silly but it was very dangerous, particularly when you try to sit on the seat for the first time and end up smashed into the wall. The walls are paper thin so noise and whispers could quite easliy be heard. The beds were ok but the pillows have had it. The main meals were absolutely terrible. Two nights with deep fried chicken schnitzel. Third night a number of guests including my family had been totally forgotten about by management regarding an early dinner. When the familes arrived including mine at the normal time the kitchen had been shutdown. We were told by the cook that management had told him that everyone had been told about the early dinner. Obviously not. So the cook rustled up some; wait for it..Chicken shnitzel burgers, which had been sitting in the bay maree for quite a while. We had Sking goggles, gloves and helmet stolen from the heater room. My perception is that the current management all though polite are not up to the task of manageing this establishment. Possibly because of lack of staff or lack of management ability or lack of access to capital. With one night left to stay we decided forget it. We packed our bags and left. Didn't get much bang for a lot of bucks.

Thank you for your comments. It was a difficult stay and we do appreciate all feedback. It would be very nice if there was a website that rated and commented on guests. Some are more difficult to please than others but we always try our best regardless - for some however it will never be good enough. Most guest are extremely complimentary of our efforts to please and go out of our way.

Overall a nice hotel. Its worthwhile the stay if you can't find somewhere better. The hotel manager was rude to me though. When you're paying $460 a night you expect to be treated better.
