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

The River inn is in the perfect loctation all you do is walk out of the resturant and bar and you are at the Gunbarrel Express chairlift and right by the ski school, no need to catch any shuttles or walk down or up tje hill in the village. Perfect if you have kids or are lazy like me and... More

We stayed here twice over the last Australian ski season, due its proximity the the beginners slopes and it basically being ski in ski out. This is the only thing going for it, and we would stay here again for this reason (although we have booked other options for next season!). However, the staff were most disinterested, the food is...

We are a family of 4 (parents + 2 teens) and we enjoy an annual ski weekend in Thredbo. We chose the River Inn because we got a deal that allowed all 4 of us to stay in 1 room + ski hire + some meals. The use of the word "resort" is misleading as the River Inn is more... More

This property would probably suit more people than not, but for me it had more negatives than positives. As most people have mentioned the location is it's redeeming feature. The rooms were clean but the walls too thin - the family rooms need to be located in one area of the hotel and non families in the other - I... More

If you don't mind paying good money and staying at a low budget backpackers lodge then be my guest. Unfortunately, I can only be more negative then positive for this "resort".. We only just recently stayed here and experience was average. The ski in ski out at Friday flats is probably the only thing going for this place. (Ski in... More

What is the best about River Inn is the proximity to the slopes. We recently stayed at River Inn with friends and our 3 children. For families, this proximity to the snow was excellent and we were able to enjoy drinks and meals straight after stepping off the slopes. Breakfast was included in our package and 2 meals which we...
