If you're looking for budget accommodation on the way to or from the snow then this is for you. The staff were helpful and friendly. They ensure your room is heated before you arrive. The rooms need a big makeover, but our room was clean and the shower hot. It was noisy when people arrived after midnight a couple of...

Save that 2am journey. This place makes a great overnight stop off on the way to the snow for the weekend from Sydney. You can arrive late and the rooms will be ready and heated, electric blankets on and clean for your arrival. Reception is open late for those leaving Sydney after work and arriving late night. In the morning...

The price was good, the staff friendly, the room clean. The only reason that I didn't give it a very good rating is that my room was very original and in need of a renovation. I did notice that another room had been upgraded. I would stay again on a trip to or from the snow as the bed was...

We were 4 couple and so rented a 4 bed room apartment. The motel is very very old and needs a lot of maintenance. John in the reception is really great and guided us for our stay. Since we were 8 people so enjoyed but otherwise do not think will stay in this motel. This apartment has 4 big rooms...

We stayed for a night in their family room (lower level) after an afternoon in Thredbo. The room is small with 1 queen bed and 2 single beds. The toilet is decent in size. They provided us with 2 oil heaters and an electric blanket for the queen bed. They have a reserved parking spot for each room and they...

For $200 a night it was a disgrace !!! The furniture that was in the room was the type you would find on the streets for the garbage men to pick up !! Crockery and shelves were filthy !! Noise from the upstairs apartments was horrendous ..... Overall bad experience , only plus was the electric blankets.

Right out of the 1960's. Hasn't had a coat of paint since then. Tiny room. VERY tired furnishings (also out of the 60's). Sheets felt grotty. Carpet the same. Saggy bed. Water leaking from either the toilet or shower, or both. Was close to the town CBD, but definitely wouldn't stay there again. Just not up to scratch for a...

Unable to lock front door from inside, main bedroom door wouldnt close properly and had lock on outside of door, no exhaust fan in bathroom with only one light working and that one was hanging from the roof. Also found mouse droppings on the bed cover and clothes, after having a shower so the mouse is still in the room!...
