The River Inn is not a Hotel, it is an Inn, let's be very clear about that. When you pay a 5 star price, it almost always comings with certain five star standards that you can bank on, then its just the little bits and pieces that sets the scene... NOT SO with this one. The location to the ski... More

My son and I stayed 5 nights but couldn't check in til 4pm which was annoying considering we had a long trip from Perth. The rooms were basic. The "included" breakfast and 2 dinners were basic cafeteria food, nothing special, food left drying out and going stale in the baymarie, raw rubbery bacon and eggs pretty much raw and cold... More

Seriously disappointed with this hotel. For the price and considering it calls itself a 'resort' we were expecting something marginally better than grimy backpacker accommodation. Our 'king' size room was the size of a shoe box and the decor wasn't much better. The bathroom was a glorified port-a-loo complete with caravan sized shower. No attempts have been made to even...

The food was so good , huge helpings , 3 courses cooked Breakfast and Dinner, lunches were huge and as little as $16 that I've paid... More

We booked into a "Family Room" for three days. There is nothing "Family" about this room or the hotel. The room is a single room with two additional single mattresses put on either side of the double bed. No space on either side. The "dining room" is a dining room/dodgy pub. We ordered dinner last night. There were 40+ young... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in mid July 2015 for a family ski trip with our kids age 6 and 11. I have mixed feelings about this holiday so thought I would just list the pro's and cons Pros The hotel is in a fantastic location just next to Friday Flat - you just walk out the door and... More

Paying for a resort for ski in ski out you would expect all the extras. I don't stand alone when I expect a relaxing spa after a hard day on the slopes and this necessity when skiing is denied due to pathetic excuses that do not justify the means not recommended

This place accomocated prefectly for our group. Being right on the slopes... what more could you ask for!! But the food was also great, rooms were clean, warm and cosy. The staff were friendly and helpfully. And the entertainment on the deck for apres skiing was fantastic. The guys at oz snow adventure (who we booked our package with) work... More

Perfect location for a ski weekend in Threadbo. The lodge isn't fancy, its not a luxury place but it doesn't try to be. What it is however is clean, comfortable and a 50m walk onto the slopes. Most people stay down at Snow River or Jindabyne however its then a 30 minute drive or buss up the mountain. I loved... More

Absolutely horrible! The breakfast and dinner is for dogs, the dining room is filthy and cutlery and crockery are disgusting, the only clean looking food tray smelt like baby's poo! The rest had yesterday's food still in it. This is not a 4 stat establishment. The staff are there but not clocked in, no one seems to like their job.... More
