Before arriving here I read the previous reviews and to be honest they had me worried! But I was actually really pleasantly surprised when we arrived. I wasn't expecting a "resort" style accommodation or anything "deluxe" but I was happy with the facilities and fit out of the rooms. We stayed in a king room (number 41) which was at... More

The River Inn mainly caters for school groups - not families! Completely agree with all of ozandaround's comments. We also had meal vouchers but the food on offer is Goulash, Chilli Beef - what child under ten will eat that? The staff advise you to order a pizza from the bar (but this is not covered on the voucher!). Great... More

The good bits....the staff seem helpful. The bad bits.... Definitely outweigh the good. This is definitely the worst place that we have stayed at for skiing. The staff are overworked and understaffed, management dont seem to give a hoot. 1. No secure lock up for skis. For goodness sake this place is on the snow ( which is its main... More

Great location for skiing...merely walk across the bridge and you are in the hub to catch ski lifts to wherever you may wish to go. Also close to Easy does it lift and Friday Flats. Not far to go for lessons either. I would not advise going there during school holidays as the River Inn is booked by school groups... More

Absolutely wonderful location for skiing at Friday Flats.... the convenience of this with young children in tow was fantastic. Another plus was the Pizza's served in Restaurant and wait staff were helpful. Unfortunately rooms looked nothing like nice photo's shown on River Inn website which was disappointing. Also bunks have been replaced with Trundle beds which were just slide out... More

We were in Thredbo for the 1st week of the school hols 2014 and loved the convenience of The River Inn for lunch with all the kids. Much nicer than the cafeteria at Friday Flat and perfect location to ski straight out for their lessons. After a day on the slopes we would hang out on the balcony to listen... More

Pros The location- It's located just behind Gunbarrel express and Easy does it quad. My hubby and I are both beginners, so it was very handy. The beginners area (easy does it) and the ticker counter are just around the corner. Nice beer- It has a lovely pub with nice beer. We ordered Chicken snizel, and it was reasonable size... More

The location can't get any better on the foot of the slopes. The rooms are good and clean. They have friendly staff that's helpful and a good laugh. To top it off they have a balcony with live music where you can enjoy a beer after a day on the mountain. Can't beat any of this.

Similar to the other recent view we went as a family and stayed here because we managed to grab a very heavily discounted voucher and sneak in before the peak school holiday season. Also having researched we weren't too sure what to expect but knew it wouldn't be 5 star - and for the price we were prepared to accept... More

Just returned from 5 days staying at River Inn. Where do I start? I have stayed at many places in Thredbo including the YHA so I feel I have a fairly good perspective on all things Thredbo. There is 1 thing going for this place: 1. Location - I loved having a chairlift right at the door! Ski in Ski... More
