    Best location - right on snow”

    First time that we've stayed on snow and we loved it. Just a short walk across the footbridge to the Gunbarrel Express ski lift at Fridays Flat. Breakfast was included and was fantastic - plenty of hot and cold selections. We stayed in a room on the top floor near a set of stairs and were woken each morning with loud footsteps down the stairs (but we needed to get up so no real drama). Housekeeping staff were friendly and replaced towels daily. The ski/board/boot drying room is in a convenient place on the way out of and in to the Inn. If you are staying on the top floor, be mindful that there is no lift and so you will need to carry your bags up and down stairs (luckily we were all young and pretty fit so it didn't phase us). There is only a 15 minute drop off zone to unload and reload your bags from the car and this can sometimes get a bit hectic - near check in and check out times. All in all a great place to stay. I'd stay again (if I can afford it).

    Family Room of 4 is a disgrace”

    We booked a "family room" for a week which was $740 per night. This was for 2 adults and 2 teenage children. I have travelled, skied and stayed in Thredbo for over 30 years. So I've seen many forms of accomodation. The room we were allocated was the size of a small hotel room. The teenage childrens beds were "trundels" which were really just like mattresses on the floor. You could not even get around the beds when it was all out. There was no room to put anything or move. This was completely different than the website and what was promoted. We tried to change and they said it was too late and it's not their problem. They blamed the travel company "Oz Snow" and "Agoda". I rang 3 times to ensure we had the room on the website and they said it was a family room. I would never stay there again, it was a complete rip off for the money. They also showed options or apologies for the poor quality of their overpriced offer.

    I understand you don't get a lot for your money at Thredbo, however, basic safety and cleanliness was not on offer at this location. The light switch was hanging off the wall, the single beds didn't have mattress protectors and the mattresses and quilts looked dirty & disgusting. The hairdryer would not pass basic safety standards and looked like it had already blown up a few times (melted and black). The bunk bed rail was held on with sticky tape. The complimentary shower gel and shampoos were empty! We had ants in the room. Breakfast area was dirty, sticky and everything things run out (serviettes etc) Pay a little extra and stay elsewhere.

    Do not let the location tempt you”

    Our stay wasn’t ruined by the paper-thin walls or the fact they don’t have onsite parking when it says they do. It wasn’t the slop they call breakfast or the horribly overpriced dinner. It was the TERRIBLE customer service and non-existent service recovery skills is what makes me say this is the worst place to stay in the region, I would rather sleep in my car then deal with these people again. We were double charged for our stay, I understand mistakes happen and we gave them significant opportunity to resolve the issue. It took 3 weeks of, emails and calls to the office every single day, the hotel would blame Oz Snow and Agoda, Oz snow would blame the hotel, endless buck passing to have the money refunded. Do not stay here, don’t just take my review for it, read the reviews on google. You may not be double charged for your stay but be rest assured if you have ANY issue they will not help you. This place is atrocious, and the staff do not value anyone as a welcomed guest.

    Adequate but wouldn't go back to stay as family don't ski, lift Friday Flat is for skiers only not passengers, bit of walk to central chair lifts. Accommodate alot of young drunks and loud. Room not done up or vacuums. No air conditioning, hot days heaters still on all hallways or corridors. Family room is alot more than share toilet dome around $35 only. Our bunk beds for kids set right at the door, noises maxed. Random door knockings very disturbing, hadn't never experienced anything like it. Can't recommend it if we aren't planning on revisiting.........hotel stuff front desk not very informative to us.... Confusing or not knowing has to wait to ask each other. Breakfast ok, day 1 is different to day 2. Breakfast not ready by 7am as stated. All in all a pleasent enough stay just for 2 nights.

    While the King room is advertised to be 45m2, it is less than 25m2. Advertised check in time is 2pm. We arrived at 3pm after a long trip and was told that we can only check in at 4pm. There is ONE chair in the room for 2-3 people??? Wall is super thin. We could hear clearly what people next door were talking. Also can hear people running on top of you at night. Toilet flushing button is broken, keeps getting stuck and letting water run. Water in the shower randomly leaks and it is freaky to hear that at night. Air conditioner is centralised. Super hot in summer but you cant adjust the temperature. Also, there are some stains on the pillows. It's totally a rip off. So frustrating to stay there for 2 days.
