“Magnificent Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Beautiful views, great on snow accomodation with friendly helpful staff and great tasty food. Unfortunatleyseveral family that let their kids run rampid and act ferrel in the afternoons and at mealtimes made it very uncomfortable. There excuse "we are on holidays"....well so were the rest of the guests!

I would stay again, but will check on how many kids are there first. I felt like I was in a preschool on 2 nights and hibernated to my room as lounge area was over run and noisy. Even then kids ran up and down hallways knocking on doors.

My last night was better as the ferrel kids had left. Rooms were beautiful .......

PS: I am a parent and felt that this was unexecptable behaviour and was disrecpectful to other guests and staff.

A small group of us stayed here mid season in 2011, Having never been to the snow, and having not found a lot of info on the lodge I was pretty nervous about whether it would be good accom. We were very pleasantly surprised. I can't say enough about the friendly staff, Matt and Jacquie are awesome, very friendly and Matt is a wicked cook. Our room was in the new wing and very nicely decorated,everything was new and clean. Great showers, and very comfy beds. TV could have had a greater range of channels but really your there for the snow, who watches TV. Food was more than impressive. From Thai noodle salad, to delicious soups, curries, steak, amazing honey mustard chicken breast, and a chocolate cake that would make max Brenner mouth water, all dinners were three courses, and brekky was always good. Occasionally taking requests (we got pancakes :-P). It is a little bit of a walk to the lifts, but its all down hill so skiing or snowboarding down is a breeze, and there was a free transfer back to the lodge after 4pm. only downsize is there isn't a bar at the lodge, but bring your own grog and u can have your own, less expensive bar. your veranda is one giant fridge so no worry about keeping your rums or beers cold. The drying room was very efficient, coats, boots gloves were always completely dry by morning (however don't spend long in there as the overwhelming foot stench kinda knocks you as u open the door ) we had a small group of 4 but met a lovely couple who stayed at the lodge at the same time. as its not a massive lodge , and dinner is served as a group it was very easy to make friends. One night all at the comedy club down the road and your all the best of mates ahaha couldn't recommend this place enough will definitely be booking in for the 2012 season.

Room Tip: all are as good as the rest, we stayed downstairs and in the new wing and was very nice.

Kooloora is one of the more competitively-priced places to stay at Perisher. Positives include very clean, new decor, smart bathrooms with excellent showers and a friendly manager ever prepared to summon up Hans's Oversnow to take you to the centre of the resort.
But it isn't entirely cosy. The dining/sitting area has bright overhead lighting and a fake fire and is dominated by an enormous television that always seems to be on (but, a big disappointment to the political junkies among us, it allowed access to many crap channels but oddly not to the mainstream Australian channels, or Sky, the BBC etc - the same was true of the televisions in the bedrooms) . The bad acoustics in the dining area also made it very very noisy at dinner. The building was also invariably overheated while we were there and it was impossible to correct this by opening doors onto the dining area verandah (permanently locked).
A generous cooked breakfast was a positive (as long as you turned up between 8 and 8.30). Dinner required attendance by 6.30pm, a bit early for us. The food was not bad the first night (spring rolls followed by curry) but a bit disappointing the following (tomato soup that tasted like tomato paste, pork chops and lots of pureed pumpkin). And you might avoid stacks on the slopes, but you won't avoid them on your plate - what's the explanation for this bizarre, unappetising way of serving food? Not licensed so byo the only option.
Good luck to the managers who seem to be doing well. But if you can afford it, try somewhere more charming like the Eiger Chalet.
