We stayed 5 night in September. We had stayed back in 2009 with our 4 children and found Ripparoo very comfortable both in fitting in with other guests and being spoiled by the hosts. Happily nothing has changed in Claire and Al's attitude to service and great meals. It was nice to find their young team (including their son) were...

Really cosy, comfortable and welcoming place to stay. Claire and the guys are always smiley and extremely helpful. Unfortunately we didnt get to try the dinner that is raved about, but the breakfast was great too and all included in the price. We would go back again without a doubt.

We had a great time at Falls Creek, staying at Ripparoo Ski Lodge. The staff were warm and very accomodating, with a great taste in music! The food was fantastic; possibly the best in Falls Creek... If you want to be comfortable in Falls Creek, stay at Ripparoo.

Wonderful hospitality by managers Claire and Alistair and staff along with the best food on the mountain!! Ripparoo is cosy and friendly - the only downer was we couldn't stay longer. A great lodge and perfectly located.

Enjoyed a fantastic weekend at the snow staying at Ripparoo! Stayed with a large group that booked out the lodge and the owners were nothing but accommodating. Everything was well organised, clean and loved the warm fireplace in the communal area. Dinner on the Saturday night was definitely a highlight. Delicious!
