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

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
