3/5 Okay

Stayed 3 nights in Jun 2017

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Quiet warm but dated.
Basic and tired motel but very clean and set back from main road so nice and quiet.

4/5 Good

Liked: Staff & service
very affordable place
affordable price for just sleeping-in on the way to the snow. hopefully they will soon upgrade the room heating to a reverse cycle A/C as the radiant heater is not enough even thought it was already spring it still gets could at night. I can just imagine in the middle of winter. comfy beds and clean linen. hot shower was also great as water pressure was high.check-in and out with no hassles. accomodating people at reception. won't mind coming back again.

2/5 Poor

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Basic accommodation
Hotel was basic and aged. Felt like walking into a time warp straight into the 80s. If you just want basic accommodation for a decent price then this is ok.

3/5 Okay

Comfortable beds but beware of wifi and showers
Short stopover for a family ski trip. All accommodations in Jindabyne were fully booked, hence we booked in Berridale, which is about an hour plus drive to Perisher. Beds were comfortable. However, the free wifi doesn't work. The hot and cold shower was erratic, changing from hot to cold constantly, and therefore you can only do a quick shower.
