Squatter's Run
Reviewed January 15, 2012

We really enjoyed our stay at Squatters Run. The position is very central, the view is fantastic and the apartment itself was quite spacious for a small family and well equipped and very clean. The only minor negative is the lack of window covering in the loft bedroom. The manager, Nigel was very professional, hospitable and helpful and was always available if any assistance was required. The outstanding DVD collection, which was available for free rental was an added bonus.

2 Bedrooms , 2 bath, one bath a steam room, the other one a spa bath, internet tv, free wifi, LED tv's in bedrooms, ipod docks/clock/radios, Jura espresso, fireplace, parking at a your private entry front door Feather topped beds, king pillows, belgium linen and pure cotton sheeting, Lanvin products.
it appears that some of the apartments are rented out by the owners others by a management team which may explain the differences - this was a beautifully decorated and comfortable and clean apartment no 32

MY Only complaint and its pretty small but the upper windows ( the front ones have wooden shutters ) but the smaller windows have no window coverings and although its lovely and really fantastic the light that streams in there would be great in winter

But in summer at 5 am in the morning is really a great big pain when ur on holidays and hoping for a sleep in its my only complaint


it is close to everything

Apartment 12A was comfortable, clean, OK appointed. Sounds like it's very different from apt 15 of previous reviewer.
1 BR & 1 loft, both were spacious. Good for a family but might be a bit squeezy if coming with a group of friends as it only has 1 bathroom wasn't very large. The highlight was the proximity to the village & ski lifts. The balcony is basically on top of the shops. Great for winter as there's a locker room for your gear nestled between the shops, so you don't need to lug your gear up the hill like other accomodations in Thredbo. For summer, I'ld probably stay somewhere higher up the mountain for better views.
As they say, it's all about location, location, location!

Room Tip: ask for apartment 12A

Do not book Apartment 15 it is horrible, poorly equipped, no luxuries, shocking bed and pillows no comfortable chairs or lounge to sit in, badly designed bathroom and bath, which was not clean. Overall a very expensive non luxury apt, more like a motel room!! and poorly maintained.

Room Tip: Avoid Apt 15 the studios appear to be better furnished. and inviting!!!

Dear Bullant3.
Once again I wanted to thank you for your feedback. Although not as positive as most of our guests when they leave, we certainly appreciate the time you took in leting us know that the apartment you stayed in was not up to your expectations. This is unfortunate as when we spoke, I advised you that we have many return guests who particularly request that apartment year in, year out.
Regardless, your feedback has assisted us in working with the owners of the apartment to instigate a refurbishment plan that we will put in place early in the new year to better represent the bulk of our apartments managed by our company at Squatters Run, and to better meet your expectations next time you choose to stay with us.
Warm regards, Nigel G.

Fully equipped kitchens will keep the chef happy - whether your culinary skills are gourmet level or you have mastered reheating in the microwave. Unique design features are found throughout the complex. For some, a window seat provides a great view of the passing village life.

Outside of fabulous skiing and snowboarding in winter, time your visit for Christmas and New Year or one of the special events and festivals in summer such as the Jazz, Groove and Funk festival every March or Blues in January. Every apartment comes with views of the mountain, balconies, and each unit has a reserved car space. ... more   less
