This is a great place to stay for skiing in Perisher. It's affordable convenience being only 8km away from the ski resort, and a great option if you want to avoid the logistics of a Jindabyne stay, and maximise your time on the snow. We were a group of 3, and stayed in a one bedroom on level 2. The... More

There is limited clothes hanging/storage space in the room. Bathroom is too small. There is no lift in this place so if you have young children than you might need to book another place. Housekeeping is terrible. We are not the ones who leave early in the morning. We were knocked at least 03 times in between 7:30 to 9... More

Penny, Peter and Steve are welcoming, their customer service is great and their staff are hard working, friendly and efficient. Beds are comfy, food is substantial, atmosphere is warm and friendly.

The chalet sits by itself most of the way up the mountain. It is a short 10-15min drive from the Perisher snow fields. The heated pool and steam room are a good way to relax after a days skiing or boarding. The large lounge, bar an recreation area is very nice and comfortable. The big open fireplace in one part...

Steve and his team practice very good hospitality. Sponars is good value on snow accomodation. The food can be homely on some days and restaurant quality good on others, and is generally good, tasty and large servings. Buffet breakfast and 3 course sit down dinner. We were late getting in on Friday evening and they set aside plates of food... More

Great value stay as it is situated close to the resort and the comfort and facilities are good. Great value. Stayed here many years ago under previous management. Best to say all areas have improved a lot so it is now more than ok. The food included in the tariff is reasonable/good quality and plentiful. The common area facilities are... More

We stayed for 6 nights and it was superb! The food was great and the staff were always willing to help. The location is great as its only 8 kms down the mountain with plenty of shuttles to the ski fields. The rooms are basic but from being on the mountain all day you dont spend much time in them....

Thank you Sam. We agree about the sociable side of the lodge but, I must say, we wish we could get better internet. We look forward to seeing you again next season Warm regards Penny More

We spent a weekend at the chalet. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the meals are good value. Though the rooms are basic and dated, the beds are clean and comfy. Attention could be paid to some cob webs in the room and rubbish under the bed ! Wifi and mobile reception would bring it to the current decade.

stayed for 2 nights recently and the chalet is a great base albeit off the snow Basic rooms and the beds need to be normal size as they are very narrow and being 6'3" not that great. Dinner was very substantial as was breakfast and the drying room was excellent. Onsite parking makes it very convenient.

Our group of friends is always very happy with their stay at Sponars! Such a lovely cosy vibe to come back to after an exhausting day on the slopes. The shuttle bus is awesome and reliable, the drying room means your gear is toasty warm the next day ready to go again and the 3 course meals are delicious and... More
