We were so disappointed in the dreary shabbiness of the rooms that we (all three of us) voted to do the arduous hour's drive over the mountains to Thredbo (in the twilight) rather than stay a night there! Staff were friendly and obliging and were happy to let us see a few rooms - and there was lots of choice even though it was a busy long weekend and most other accommodation in the prev ious town was 100% full and it was getting late. I think that says it all.
Time for a revamp out of the 1970s! Maybe the price matched the standard (60AUS for a room with two saggy single beds)? Our advice - drive on!
