Terrible. They double-booked our room and bumped us. Apparently it happens a bit at candlelight. We got sent to another (cheaper) hotel. We weren’t told about it at all. They were just going to wait till we turned up but the other hotel rang asking where we were because they had the wrong dates. Don’t stay here!

Hi Michael We completely understand your frustration and your need to provide a “terrible” review with a score of 1…. based on the overbooking issue, we had with your booking rather than an actual stay with us. (which as explained was a system error not a human error) As we advised in our previous communication with you since your stay in Thredbo, yes in hindsight we should have called you straight away. We decided to wait until you arrived as we wanted to discuss all the alternative options that we were going to offer you, to ensure you were happy with the outcome. One of the alternative hotels we were considering was holding the room for you but unfortunately, they booked the wrong dates and then rang you to query why you had not arrived. I totally understand that this created a bad taste in your mouth …..but as we have tried to explain to you in previous private conversations, this was not our intention. You gave us no option to rectify the situation as you went straight to the other hotel. I am still hopeful that you will understand what our intentions were - and that was to look after you and ensure you were happy with the final outcome…and I will leave it at that …regards Annie Manager Candlelight Lodge

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.
