We had never been to perisher before and were therefore relying on the Internet and boy did tripadvisor let us down. This place is remote to the point of being spooky. The rooms are the worst I have stayed in since my youth hostel days (no TV no fridge cheap and nasty decor no bath no sink in the bathroom).... More

We had a fantastic stay at Barrakee Lodge. The location is amazing - waking up to views of the snow from bed is surreal! The food was fantastic - just as well we were skiing to wear off the food we ate!! Beautiful three course dinners, filling cooked breakfasts, lovely pre-dinner snacks by the fireplace! Sharn and Craig are wonderful... More

Barrakee Lodge is the place to stay! You can ski from the lodge to one of the best runs around and if you want to go to front valley or the interceptor the fantastic staff are more than willing to run you around in the lodges range of vehicles. Once you get back from a hard days skiing the rooms... More

Craig and Sharn are the best! It's like coming home to family each year when we visit. We take 30 students to ski and we are yet to find a thing these people can't do for their visitors. The food is incredible, even our fussiest eaters are appeased. The company is great and it is such a wonderful place to... More

My husband and I were not able to go on a proper honeymoon after our wedding so we decided to go to the snow for a mini break/getaway. We found Barrakke Ski Lodge on wotif.com and although it is a little more expensive to stay here the value for money and genuine/welcoming service makes it well worth it! Craig and... More

We were at Bareakee after the opening weekend 2014. Craig, Sharn and their team were so warm and welcoming. They took care of us too well. Feels like a holiday home (with full facility). We enjoyed the full breakfast a lot. The Dinners were amazing. Reminds us of the ryokan stays in Japan where they served kaisaki dinners. Facilities include... More

We stayed at Barrakee for ski season opening weekend 2014, and it was brilliant. Craig, Sharn and their team are absolutely amazing and go out of their way to make you feel welcome and at home. Food was fantastic, service was sensational and the facilities are excellent. Will definitely be staying again!
