“Going again in 2011”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2011

We stayed at San Michele last year with two young children. We arrived for the ski season and had booked the reasonably priced fully catered package. Our room had been updated and was quite acceptable to us - double or queen size bed for us (I can't recall exactly) and bunks for the girls with electric blankets. Inside was modern decor, a small but adequate heater, TV and a clean ensuite shower/toilet area. The drying room large enough for all guests to put their ski gear in and there was a (coin operated) washing machine and dryer as well. The restaurant met all our needs. Some evening meals were cold on arrival due to the cold plates. However, on rebooking this year, I spoke with the owner who has told me they are looking into a solution. They have Wifi too, and I saw one or two parents working during the evenings, but it isn't free wifi. And there's a bar! But most importantly, the kids loved it! They loved everything about it, the location, the meals, the space. And if the kids are happy, we are stocked! And the prices are very reasonable too. More than adequate for us. We met other families there too who also said they came each year as it is very family friendly. If it works out for us again this year, I expect we will become regulars at the San Michele for the next few years while the kids are little and are learning to ski.

We arrived 6pm (2 families with 3 hungry kids) and were turned away from the restaurant as they required a reservation (this is mentioned on their website apparently) - so they only cater for just enough people. Staff suggested we try Adaminaby 15 km away for food. Good thing, too. The Adaminaby Bowling and Sports Club was fantastic. Breakfast at San Michele was disappointing. Too pricey for substandard food International Roast coffee and No Name breakfast cereals. No complimentary guest soap or shampoos, just a 2 in 1 wall dispenser in the shower. No face washers provided either. The lack of these little touches gave us the impression the owners are big on costcutting!

SanMicheleResort, Owner at San Michele Resort, responded to this review, September 9, 2010
I'd like to thank this guest for their comments and let them and future guests know what we are doing to improve.

With meals many guests do take the full dinner, bed and breakfast package but for those that take the room only option we will now ensure we contact them before to check whether they will be having dinner on the first night.
We use fresh foods at San Michele and on the night of review the restaurant was fully booked although we could have catered for guests had we known they would eat in the restaurant.
We will now make sure we do contact all guests of this fact before arrival to ensure that they are not disappointed by not being able to eat with us on their first night.

On breakfast unfortunately we had run out of brand name cereal and had purchased a home brand cereal. The home brand was definitely not up to expectations and after guest comments we fed the home brand cereal to the chickens.
We will not purchase home brand cereals again unless we know they are up to guest expectations.

On soaps , we use wall mounted dispensers. We do this as 90% of soaps are not used and are not environmentally friendly. They can be a slip hazard if left on floors and as we are on a septic system we have found them causing problems as they somehow find their way into our septic system.
We will not be changing this but may review a new wall mounted system with multiple liquids, ie Liquid soap, shampoo, conditioner etc. The local supplier does not currently have such a product.

We do try to give guests excellent value for money and have taken these comments seriously.

We are continuing to upgrade and make improvements around the resort.
