“Comfortable stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

We stayed at The Ski Inn Morel for 2 nights. We were happy with the manager and the service. The room we had was spacious and clean. Unfortunately the walls are thin and we heard a lot from other room guests - were quite noisy. Overall - we recommend, based on our experience it was good value for money paid.

My son and I stayed here on the weekend of 23 February. From the moment I booked the staff member, Stephen, that I spoke to was very helpful, assisting easily with keys and directions for our late arrival. My son was sitting an exam at Snowy Mountains Grammar the whole morning and as I had nowhere to go during this time, I asked whether I could get a late checkout which was given with no fuss. The room was comfy, spacious, good value for money and I would certainly recommend it and return to stay here myself.

Went down as part of a group. Advertises a lounge area but it was locked from 10.30am until 4pm and then again locked after 8pm. Were sent to our rooms like school kids. Were threatened with the police being called if we did not leave the lounge at 8pm. Don't ask to change channels on the TV in the lounge area, that is a NO. Don't ask to use the laundry facilities because that is also a NO, even though there is a laundry.

Don't understand how one would check-in during the closed lounge hours as the reception is in the closed area?

I thought hotels were about service, but this was odd. This was a great way to spoil one's holiday.

Would be happy to go back as long as the same manager is not there.

We stayed here just after new year so no snow. Great location for lake and sightseeing. Rooms a little on the basic but we did not spend much time in there anyway. Major minus point is that the managers/ owners close the communal lounge from 11am-2pm and then again at 9pm every night. The WIFI didn't reach our room so we had to sit on the stairs outside the shuttered lounge to send emails. It would be much more sociable to keep it open later.

Do not stay here!!!
The communal lounge area closes at 8pm.
The manager was very rude when asking us to leave this area at 8pm. He said in a very forceful tone" if we don't leave he will call the police".
Is this any way to treat paying guests?
There are also cameras everywhere so if you like your holiday to be on CCTV stay at this hotel.

Steve the Brit at the desk is a wealth of local knowledge and a great guy. The rooms were clean and roomy. The lift was not working so it may be wise to call ahead if you need a lift due to a disability or heavy luggage. The balcony from the lobby overlooking the lake is fantastic.

I stayed here for three nights and enjoyed the hotel. It is a great place to stay for those wanting to get out and see the area. Also the view over Jindabyne lake from the lounge and balcony is beautiful. Reception was helpful with local knowledge and recommended great places to eat in town. The rooms cater for large groups but also suites smaller groups just as well. It was clean and well organised too.
