Chalet Sonnenhof
Reviewed August 1, 2011

We were a group of 9 in two families, in 4 rooms. The owners Karen and Nev are very nice and very helpful. Their staff were also a pleasure to deal with.

The lodge is like most others at Perisher, old, but the Sonnenhof appeared to be well kept, maintained and very clean.

The meals were very nice set menu every night with a choice of hot breakfast and continental every morning.

We had heaps of snow so the skiing was great. The Chalet has its own oversnow transport in the form of a tracked V8 bombadier, great machine.

Nev would pick us up from the bridge near the Quad chair every arvo between 4.30 and 5.

The walls of the rooms however are not very soundproof and unfortunately we did experience some irresponsible parents with badly behaved children who made a racket at night; however this is the only negative and you come accross inconsiderate people every where these days, so no reflection on the establishment.

The lodge is about a 15-20min trudge from the lifts in ski boots so is not the sort of chalet you can easily pop in and out of; however Han's oversnow taxi's come and go on a regular basis from about $6-13 a person depending on the size of your group.

We enjoyed our stay at the Sonnenhof and would be happy to return.

There is a great spa & sauna to unwind in and help the aches and pains at the end of the day. Not to many of these in other lodges.

Bar prices were reasonable and the downstairs bar was nice to sit in and chat to other guest at the end of the day. Karen and Nev were happy too to sit down and yak over a few drinks.

Thanks for a great stay!

Reviewed July 31, 2009

I recently stayed at the Chalet Sonnenhof for the first weekend of the nsw July school holidays. I can honestly say that chalet, staff, facilities and service were all above average. The meals included in our package were all 5 star and the bar prices were more than reasonable.

After a long day on the slopes, you can enjoy a nice heated spa and sauna before unwinding in the bar and heading upstairs for a fulfilling meal.

The owner operator team are more than willing to cater to your every need and the barman Sam is a warm welcome after a day on the slopes catering for whatever you fancy, as well having stories to share.

The Chalet provides over the snow transport on arrival and departure to the ski tube terminal, plus the added service of a daily shuttle service from the ski base up the hill to the Chalet.

Therefore I can strongly recommend the Chalet Sonnenhof to anyone looking for on snow accommodation in perisher valley with a friendly family atmosphere that will having you coming back the Chalet for years to come.

P.s. Write you name in the bar and add to the many years of tradition. Look for Marty and James 2009, written straight above the bar when sitting at the bar and you will see this travelers engraving.
