My first time at Black Bear Inn ticked all the boxes. The staff were very welcoming and there was a homely feel about the lodge as soon as I arrived. My room was clean & tidy, and very comfortable with great views over the mountain. I loved the little chocolates on my pillow. The cosy restaurant had nooks and crannies... More

I have stayed at Black Bear quite a few times now and I am never disappointed! The rooms are always clean and the beds are very comfortable with crisp cotton sheets. There are even chocolates on your pillow. Sandy and Stav are wonderful hosts and I have had many a wonderful meal in the restaurant. Love it all! Highly recommended.

Except for one of the female staff there we wouldn't have enjoyed our stay. We arrived late in the afternoon after a full day of traveling then climbing Kosciusko very tired and cold. The check in was ok but after getting to our rooms to have a hot shower after a long day, there was no hot water at all,... More

We stayed one night in summer. Room was large & very comfortable, great king size bed. Nice view of ski slopes. Hosts friendly and helpful. Lovely 'old ski lodge' feel & style. Would happily stay again.

We find the negative comments about Black Bear Inn do not match our experience. We arrived Friday evening for a weekend wedding. They key to room 3 was on the counter at reception and the restaurant staff arranged parking out the front for us. The Managers and staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was quiet and we had... More

The facilities in the room were old and the television tiny. Parking was extremely limited and the manager double parked in 3 of the guests. When asked to move their vehicle they took their time and were unapologetic. Very poor form. The village at Thredbo is definitely not set up for summer. Very little open which is a shame as... More

Thank you for comments regarding your stay at the Black Bear Inn. I would however like to respond as follows:- 1. The lodge is one of the original built in Thredbo Village and thankfully does retain some of its character. The rooms are clean and have been fitted out to a very comfortable standard, offering free Wi-Fi, Ipod Dock, Digital... More

We stayed with another couple over the New year eve and can not fault the BBI for the service. The owners are friendly and extremely helpful and the wait staff kind and efficient. The building has a lovely old world charm about it. The thing that lets this hotel down is the noise. The building is old and small, the... More

Great location, clean and tidy hotel. Very basic facilities in rooms, but clean and tidy and staff are very friendly. Bathrooms could do with a little more space for your amenities and the shower heads need replacing otherwise overall very comfortable. 3 minute walk from centre of the village - great central location. Difficult to unload/load cars - no parking... More

Room 11 was small, warm with a great hot shower! We stayed 3 nights and had full, cooked breakfasts each morning. We were told the room would be serviced daily, but it only happened once... When we arrived we were told by a male staff member to park in the area near Friday Flat when we could have stayed parked... More
