On a recent trip to the Snowies, we were very impressed with the hospitality and attention to detail that we experienced at Crackenback Farm. I found the actual building designed by the famous Glen Murcutt particularly interesting, with it's clever use of timber, stone and glass.There is a cosy lounge area with a large open fireplace and with comfortable sofas,...

I was very much looking forward to my 3 night recuperative stay, however, felt a little let down by the experience.. There seems to be disparity between the website and the actual...rooms, very small, tired with very basic furniture, no fridge; no bath robes, no afternoon tea, and the pool, spa, way to cold to enjoy.

After unsuccessfully searching high and low for on-mountain accommodation at the eleventh hour my partner and I booked a two-night package at Crackenback Farm with a bit of trepidation after reading some fairly scathing reviews on Tripadvisor. Our concerns were allayed as soon as we arrived; the guesthouse was very inviting, the rooms cosy and perfectly adequate for a short... More
