“Great On-Snow Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

The Stables accommodation is 5 star. Staff friendly and eager to help ... nothing is a problem for them. The restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere but the food is definitely fine dining standard. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to the snow!!!

Just returned from a long weekend at The Stables Resort Perisher. This is on snow accommodation at it's best. Get up in the morning click on your skis and zip down the hill and across the little bridge and you are at the ski fields!!! Our Chalet ( number 16) is two storey with full kitchen, fireplace, laundry/drying room for your equipment and has king size bedroom with ensuite, double bedroom and a twin bedroom. They are very warm and cozy you can walk around minimally clothed no problem. Views are awesome of front valley, Quad lift etc. Looks great when night skiing is on. For families so much easier than having to catch the skitube with gear and kids in tow. You can get the Hans oversnow to pick you up in front of the skitube terminal and take you back up the mountain to the chalet after a hard day skiing. This September was still great skiing on the green runs even though it was spring, beautiful in Pretty and Happy Valley, Perisher was generally quiet but this is great because obviously not as many people on the slopes. Kids loved skischool and are now amazing skiers after 3 days last year and one day this season. The Stables has a fantastic restaurant that caters for kids too, they also do room service, what more can you ask, oh and the bathrooms have heated floors!!!! Definitely recommended!!!!

Exceeded expectations, we stayed in family chalet in late August and had everything we needed. For first time skiers we didn't really know what to do but The Stables made it easy. From when we arrived in Perisher, the blue machine arrived to take us to the apartments, to the final day when we left in a blizzard, we couldnt find a fault. The rooms were clean, warm, and spacious with good views. The units are close to the slopes, as well as an easy walk to the shops for supplies. We will be back next year.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad the crew looked after you and as first time skiers made it easy for you, which is what staying 'on mountain' is all about. Look forward to your next review!!!

Fantastic. Definately the place to stay on snow. The accommodation was excellent and extremely comfortable, the staff and owners hospitality was excellent, friendly and courteous, the food was five star. Definately value for money and would highly recommend The Stables as the place to stay for your snow vacation.

Room Tip: Room 7 was fabulous

Thanks for taking the time to provide such great feedback. We are delighted to hear that the team looked after you and you enjoyed the restaurant. This time of year can definately provide the best value for money, still lots of snow and cheaper rates means affordable skiing. Matt and the crew look forward to seeing you back!

We spent four nights at The Stables and had a great stay. Had a 2 bedroom/ 2 bathroom family apartment. There was plenty of space; really comfortable lounges; modern ammenities; flat screen TV; DVD; stereo; well equipped kitchen; washer and drier. Nothing seemed too much trouble which was nice.

The Stables has its own oversnow which is brilliant - but our booking agent failed to tell us so we paid for oversnow on the first day. They were also happy to pick us up after their regular afternoon shuttle when we asked earlier in the day.

Food out of the restaurant is great quality and not obscenely priced, just normal snow prices. I ordered in a couple of times and the meal arrived as hot as it would if were in the restaurant itself.

Underfloor heating is great. The gas fire was burning on arrival. The apartment was warm. The drying room probably wasn't warm enough but this is minor.

The beds in our apartment were way too firm and I often woke up during the night. Would have to say that this really bothered me because... well, who doesn't like a good night's sleep when you are active during the day.

Thanks for the nice review, sorry you didnt like the beds though. Not sure we have had that feedback before but will get housekeeping to keep an eye on any future comments.
The apartments are set up with everything you need and having the restaurant on site you can eat in, order room service or self cater, the best of all worlds. Matt and Eve and the crew hope to see you back next season.

Just got back to WA from a week of skiing in Perisher. Six of us stayed at The Stables and I can honestly say I can't fault it. The apartment was clean, warm with excellent facilities. Access to the slopes was easy and an over snow ride is always available. The 'apres ski' bar was great and the free schnapps was a treat. The Stables restaurant was also excellent. Will definately be heading back.

Thanks for the great review. Glad you enjoyed the restaurant and bar as well. Hopefully the big boss wont see the bit about the free schnaps though (joking). Matt and Eve look forward to hosting you next year. Thanks again.

We stayed here for 7 nights a week ago for the snow and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We arrived at Perisher much too early and had nowhere to go so when we asked if we could check in at 9am we were thrilled to find out the apartment was ready and we could check in. We stayed in apartment 21 which had 3 well-sized bedrooms, 2 with ensuites and one next to the main bathroom with a spa. We never ran out of hot water contrary to older reviews. We think the location was perfect. The 5-10min walk up the hill from the slopes is nothing and it suited us fine and if anyone complained, well it's just because they are not fit enough. But for those too tired there was the option of catching the big blue snow 'tractor' every half hour between 3 and 5 after a day of skiing or boarding. In addiiton, if the first pick up was full, Matt or the other driver would return for anyone remaining. Excellent service. It was always on time. One of our friends who hurt themselves requested the Stables to pick her up outside of the normal hours and they did so, very accommodating.
We found the apartment itself very spacious with lots of extra storage space. The kitchen had everything you needed and the oven and microwave were in good working condiiton. Our friends in another apartment did have a problem with their oven and it was fixed the next day. We checked out our other friend's apartments and they were perfect for the 2 or 4 person group they had.
Heating was excellent.
We did have to walk through a foothpath to our apartment from the reception and yes it did snow heavily on our stay (we weren't complaining) and the clearway was shovelled for a day by someone. Within 2 days though they had the bobcats in to clear it completely. If anyone complains about having to walk through a snowy patch, then they shouldn't be in the snow. We were also offered help to take our luggage across the pathway so there was no problem there.
We went to the bar a few nights and it was very cosy with a fireplace and wonderful schnapps! We also dined in the restaurant and found the food was excellent. They accomodated the whole group of 11 very well.
We also ordered pizzas one night which were to die for. All the orders went to different rooms and at the end of the stay the room charges were all correct.
Matt and his wife were very accommodating and pleasant and personable.
Upon checkout we got an itemised account as requested, and we were able to book the blue tractor for a lift to the carpark. It was on time the very next morning.
We will definately stay here again next year and look forward to it.
Highly recommended.
A big thank you to Matt and his family, The Foleys

Room Tip: Apartment 21 was great for 6 people but apparently 27 is the ideal aparment.

Thanks for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review, even down to nominating our owners apartment as being the one to get.....impressive. Glad the crew went out of their way whenever they could with early check ins and transfers etc, I stress not always possible but we try to be as accommodating as humanly possible. Matt and Eve really look forward to having you back next year and will have the "blue tractor" waiting at Ski Tube when you get there!
