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

I booked this room as it was the lowest price in Thredbo Village that included breakfast. The room, I got what I paid for. Very small. The bed and pillows were comfortable but the sheets were like cardboard. There was a boot drying room however it was locked at all times and no info on how to get it open,... More

The Black Bear staff are genuinely friendly and go the extra mile to accommodate your needs. Highly recommended bar/restaurant. This is a cosy little accomodation located right near the bus stop (for skiing) and 2 mins walk from the centre of town (shopping/partying) The locals love this place and you will too!

Black Bear Inn is a very good and cozy hotel in the center of a small place – Thredbo Village. The location is very good – just 5 minutes from the lift station. The room is quite nice and clean. Personnel are really very friendly. We visited Thredbo in March 2014, so it was not for skiing, but to go... More

a short notice booking to spend New Year's eve in the mountains allowed us to enjoy the relaxed hospitality at the Black Bear Inn. Reception was closed on arrival, however, key and welcome letter was waiting for us on the desk- so all good! The restaurant was great-the chocolate fondant was sensational. We had a great view of the fireworks... More

I had the opportunity this year to find out what this Inn was like. Well sorry to say I was disappointed. When you walk into an establishment for the first time you should expect that there would be a warm welcome, don't expect this at this establishment. Rudeness & heavy atmosphere awaited us and we were very quick to depart... More

We just spent two nights here in room 6 on the top floor which had great views of the mountain from the little window. The room was very clean and tidy - appeared to have been recently repainted and carpeted. The bathroom had a skylight in it and was also clean and tidy. It is one of the older properties... More

Really friendly lodge in good position near the village. Great food at the restaurant. The room was ok. We were downstairs and didn't have much of a view, but a window, which was good. The bathroom was small and the vent fan was really loud! It came on automatically with the light. Although it was tiny the bathroom had a... More
