Unit 31 at Squatter Run was wonderful for a hassle free ski trip. We travelled as a group of four and had no complaints. As well as having comfortable beds and breathtaking views of the mountain, the apartment had every comfort you could ask for, including a nespresso machine in the kitchen and bbq on the balcony. Oh and the... More

Our trip to Thredbo was punctuated by the fantastic service and accommodation at Squatters Run. Check in was a breeze, the apartment was huge with great views, ample storage and a fully equipped kitchen. The bed was a dream to sleep on and the "dry room" entry was perfect for all out ski gear. I've stayed at plenty of apartments... More

Accommodation was great......and in great location as far as accessing the chair lifts were concerned. The location was also very close to the nightlife and other necessities (bars, restaurants, shops, supermarket, etc). The staff were very helpful and flexible - accommodating my requirements. It was a great week skiing!!!!

Having stayed at a number of locations in Thredbo, I think I can safely say that Squatters Run offers the best of everything. Squatters sits ideally above the village shops with immediate access to the supermarket, chemist, and bakery. With easy access to the local bus service at the rear, you will be sitting on a chair lift within 5... More

We got a pretty good deal for this apartment on the website and couldn't be happier for what we got. Great location, just 5 minute walk to the lifts and also to most of the restaurants and cafés. Good quality all around, warm room and quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only thing was the communication when organizing... More

We decided to take a last minute trip to the snow to show my son what it's like. After arriving in thredbo with no accomadation booked we began ringing around. We heard from another place that squatters run had a cancellation half an hour before. Verina the manager took my call and what a delight she was. She was so... More

Stayed in SR for a week in a studio. Great location above village square and short distance to lifts. Every apartment has full kitchen, balcony and view. The boot room was very convenient as was having a car space included. Unfortunately we weren't told how to access wifi. Additionally the washing machine leaked and you could hear the people above...

Awesome place to stay. Very handy location above restaurants, bakery, shops, near pub, short walk to ski lifts and a nice clean unit. Most foxtel channels. Nice view of the mountain. Bus stop to friday flats very close and bus runs every 5 mins. Great if you have kids.

Just stayed 7 days at Squatters Run with 2 grown children. Location is excellent. Right in the centre of town with a drying room at street level for skis and boots. Apartment was nicely furnished with a slow combustion fire in the living area. We had an awesome view of the mountain and ski runs. Loved how the kitchen was... More
