Very basic accommodation. Personally I would spend more and stay elsewhere. Whilst there are handy features, such as the parking, shuttle bus, changing room and luggage storage, it lacks in other areas. In the rooms - I understand that there is no TV reception thus no TVs but how about a bar fridge? People travelling with kids need milk! Bathroom... More

Stayed for a week here and had a great time. Staff very friendly and obviously love their job. Food and atmosphere excellent. Only negs I can pick...only two washing machines for 95 rooms and paper thin walls. (Ear plugs fixed that when sleeping) Happy to stay again.

It's been 15 years since I've been to Ski Rider and I can't believe the change. Great value, good accommodation, food sensational and so many cosy places to sit and relax. Even appreciated the change rooms we could utilise after our last days skiing even though we had checked out. Great to have a shower before we hit the road... More

We stayed one night at the Ski Rider, we stayed in a room that could sleep 6 people, which was warm and clean, there are no TV's in the room but there are plenty of power points for laptops, tablets etc to charge and play. The bathroom was very compact. There were two sets of bunk beds that are attached... More

It is unusual for the bunk beds to squeak. This is an issue which will be addressed by maintenance. We do apologise for this (and your singing neighbours). Thank you for taking the time to review our property. More

I will not go anywhere else. I have now stayed at ski rider twice. Its located in a nice quiet spot, with tidy rooms. The main area has everything you could want. The food- amazing! The chef always had something dairy free for me, and not plain and boring- an actual meal! Unlike other places I've stayed. The staff are... More

my husband and i really enjoyed our stay at Ski Rider. Location is perfect, so close to the slopes of Smiggins and Perisher, and so convenient with the free shuttle bus taking us to and fro.
