John, the owner, has written a very comprehensive and helpful response to earlier reviews and so I shall be equally comprehensive and, hopefully, constructive with my review. My wife and I stayed for a week at the beginning of May. I emailed the day before arrival to confirm we had booked twin beds. Even though we had prepaid in full...

For the benefit of readers with so many points raised and the offer there we decided to telephone Dennis and we had a mutually constructive conversation of which was too long to reconstruct here but in summary we have learnt from a lot of points. A number of maintenance issues of which we were unaware were a quick fix done...

Haven't been to Thredbo for a few decades, and so was looking for something nice for our anniversary weekend. Chose Candlelight because it was one of the older lodges, excellent tariff, and I have stayed there before, even if a very long time ago. Room looked out onto mountainside, and reception was warm friendly and efficient. Good sized clean room,...

Hi Mark, We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your visit, and that your anniversary was spent beautifully as well. We certainly pride ourselves on being kept very clean and tidy whilst still maintaining the heritage of Candlelight itself. Our position on the mountain is quite selective and is a good distance away from town. Thank you so much for...

We have stayed here many times over the past years always in summer. The rooms are clean, big and comfortable with a king size bed, with excellent views onto the mountain, The breakfast is continental and basic - staff helpful. Parking can be a problem as it is limited.

This is an old hotel, but kept up well. We had a lovely room with a loft for our bedroom. Our balcony overlooked My Kosciuszko, which we hiked up during our visit. Breakfast is a small continental breakfast served downstairs. Special kudos to Madie, who made our stay comfortable and treated us as family.

The property is in a good location with nice views over the valley. Staff are friendly and responsive to requests. Property is a bit run down and could use some updating. Breakfast is skimpy but adequate. Parking at the property is very limited. There are 3 parking spaces for 14 rooms so expect to unload then reposition your car a...

Thanks for yor comments. Just responding firstly to comments of the lodge being a bit run down and there appears to be a recurance of these comments surfacing on this forum over last month or two so not sure if they are related or influenced by previous comments but just some notes for future travellers.

Good place for a family with children to stay in Threbdo. Very central. Rooms are very clean. View from our room was great - on the mountains. Customer service is excellent. It is just a bit pricey for what it is!

Nice view of the mountain from our balcony, we arrived when to was quite hot, the next morning we were completely fogged in, it did lift and we were able to climb the mountain. Room is nice and comfy, breakfast is basic.

Spent 5 nights at Candlelight Lodge to go Mountain Bike Riding and hiking at Thredbo in early January. Yes, the rooms are dated but they are neat and comfortable. A continental breakfast, which was simple but sufficient, was included with the accommodation

A nice and spacious lodge built way back in the 1950s in the early days of Thredbo. Has lots of character.. but could do with some new sheets and a proper breakfast spread. Allow for the Thredbo Price Premium.

We had to hunt for the receptionist to check in. The rooms have good views. But it needs a good make over. The rooms were clean enough. The doors and windows are hard to close or open etc. The breakfast was basic and the service very slow.
