We stayed for 3 days and thought the place was really good! Excellent location, staff welcoming and the view over lake is stunning. Breakfast buffet was really good and kept us going on the slopes. The bar area is brilliant, with log fire, overlooking lake, pool and pints of beer for $8 can't complain. Food menu wasn't huge but lots... More

I stayed with some friends for holiday and we all are extremely unpleasant with the service and the stuff, everyone so rude in this place and if you come here once will never come again... :-(( This is on a good location that's why you may like to come but don't misguided. NOT RECOMMENDED

I would just like to say that when we booked this Motel we did not have very high expectations and I am certainly glad we didn't. The Motel is fairly clean with great views. Breakfast was ok with variety. However, our main concern was the service received. If you are a young couple or a young group of friends would... More

We recently stayed at this motel for the Sun-Fri package which included Breakfast and Dinner. We have been going to this motel with a big group for many years. This year was not as I had hoped, the problem was mainly with the food, it was served in a buffet style setting and was only just warm in temperature. It... More

As a group that has been staying at the Ski Inn for around 18 years we found it dissapointing this year. Our main concern was the food as before this year the meals were always great but this year we were only served Thai food that was too spicy to eat and we had a number of children that was... More

TheSkiInn, Owner at The Ski Inn Motel, responded to this review

Dear Lyn, sorry that your long association with the Ski Inn has come to an end. Since we have changed our restaurant, it seems as if your group is no longer suitable to continue patronising our hotel. Your criticism is unjustified and not fair, very disappointing. It was a very difficult week for us, where we tried very hard to... More

Food terrible, they cut corners to save costs water down hot chocolate no milk. Meals cold. Don't allow for kids other than chips for tea. Measily portions for desserts. Change linen every three days and freezing in motel too tight to light fire or put heaters on

Too be honest i didn't think it was that great when we booked it, however upon arrival it smelt clean, receptionist friendly, room very spacious and clean. We had the breakfast included in package, was average. Location was great not too far from the busy nugget crossing and closest to the national park. Overall a pleasant experience.

I visited with my two boys, originally I wanted to be above the snow line but due to our late booking I settled for Jindabyne. Couldn't have realised what a great choice we made as I booked from WA. The Manager was unbelievably helpful and made the stay one of the friendliest I have had for years. I don't normally... More

Very rude manager. Clearly trying to cut corners financially. Charge $4.50 for a cappuccino that is worse than instant coffee . No fresh towels. Towels that you put out to try in the room are found scrunched up and thrown on top of the bed. Have to say - terrible customer service.not worth it if you want a pleasant stay.... More

We got here 2 days ago and were pleasantly surprised by how comfortable and pleasant this place is. Large spacious room, warm and comfortable. Generous breakfast and lovely dining area and lounge room with open fire overlooking lake. Only half hour drive to Perisher and minutes to restaurants and shops. Thanks to our host.
