Check in was friendly but lazy, rooms were clean but not serviced the $300+ per person for 2 nights with trundle beds is not good enough,Trundle are for children if I wanted to sleep on the floor, I'd go camping! food that is included is on par with school camp food. Location is great for lift access. I Would only... More

I am in my late 40s, had never skied, wanted to learn and spent a week recently at Thredbo. It's true the room was very expensive but there is a lot of demand, the location of the resort couldn't be more central and the snow season is short. We arrived at 2:30 am under package deal arrangements. We were extremely... More

The River Inn is the ultimate in ski in ski out at Thredbo. For our group with four kids under 12 between us, the proximity to Friday Flat could not be beaten. The staff are mostly friendly and made every effort. However, rooms are small, bathrooms need an overhaul, and the walls are paper thin. Every person who walked the... More

We have just come back from a weekend at The River Inn. We arrived late at night and were greeted by a cranky women who gave us our key and then walked off without giving us any information - not even what direction our room was in. We weren't told that there was a shuttle to town, we weren't even... More

Perfect place to stay if learning any snow sport or are new to the experience. The snow is right on the back door and you don't have to travel far to relax after having tried snow boarding for the first time. Room for 2 Sydney girls travelling with lots of luggage cause not sure what to pack was a bit... More

We did 2 trips this season, River Inn and the Snowy Valley, both were great but this is the only hotel where you walk straight onto the snowfields, don't even have to cross the road! and as soon as you get the to bottom of the mountain you can basically ski straight into the bar restraunt, it was pumping with...

Walls are paper thin. Whole place vibrates from people up stairs walking in corridors. Maybe close to snow, but screaming children through the night and early morning not worth it. Food is very average. Front desk staff very friendly, but we needed rest on our holiday not sleep deprivation. Our bad choice.

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
