Staff were very attentive to detail, courteous and very happy. Tapas restaurant was so yummy as were the breakfasts. Definitely going back again even if it is just for the food and evening entertainment

We had a wonderful time at the Alpenhorn lodge, the staff were wonderful in everyway. It is a lovely old style lodge with common eating and lounge areas, great location and very well priced. Nigel was always smiling and very helpful with what was happening on the mountain.

The view from the front Room 1 was sensational - we woke up to snow capped mountains almost directly outside our window ! There was also a generous verandah with similar views for evening drinks to watch the beautiful sunsets. Nigel lived up to his reputation of managing the 'friendliest resort in Thredbo' and was very informative. The Thai restaurant was the icing on the cake with food so good (very generous serves) that we dined there two nights in a row. The room was warm and cleaned daily. Great lodge atmosphere allowed guests to share travel stories in the lounge. We look forward to annual visits from now on.

Room Tip: Room 1 out the front seems to have the best view but there's also a verandah with similar great...

We stayed at the Alpenhorn Lodge for two nights when we went to Thredbo for a weekend at the end of August. It was fantastic, the location was well placed for the community bus and the in house Thai restaurant was amazing!!!!!

Our room was large enough for the four of us and there was a secure drying room and storage room for skis making it super easy with kids. The staff - especially Nigel were great, they made us feel very welcome.

The views from the breakfast room were stunning, a great way to start the day!

Great family lodge, friendly and helpful staff. Short walk to shuttle and restaurants and chairlifts. Thai restaurant is very nice and very convenient. Our family loves the lodge atmosphere, adults stay up and talk in the Lounge areas while the kids are in bed. Have a fantastic time every year.

Alpenhorn was perfect for us. We stayed 5 nights (with another family). The location was a 5 minute walk from the village centre and getting to the kids in their ski gear to Friday Flats was relatively seamless on the free buses that stop just up the road. The staff were friendly, especially Nigel who looked after us very well. Nothing was a problem and we were made to feel very welcome. The rooms were clean, the common areas were perfect for relaxing at the end of a hard day on the slopes!! The thai restaurant was delicious - great food and reasonably priced. We had a wonderful holiday and will definitely come back - thanks Nigel and Co.

After arriving in Thredbo early from Sydney, I decided to to take advantage of the free half day skiing that came with my 3 day lift pass. Unfortunately, my home run landed me in the medical centre with a damaged calf muscle. The doctor's orders?...stay off the leg for a few days - oh great, no more skiing!
Luckily for me I had booked into the Alpenhorn Lodge for my 3 night stay. Apart from the big, clean and warm room (with a great mountain view), the extremely friendly and helpful staff/management made my stay an absolute delight. The free wi-fi enabled me to keep busy whilst I kept my leg elevated. The cosy lounge areas were great to have chats with other guests or to catch up on my book. The continental breakfast was enough to get started for the day and the Thai restaurant served up incredibly fresh and tasty dishes.
I'll be returning to Thredbo next snow season and will definitely stay at the Alpenhorn Lodge. Considering my predicament, the Alpenhorn was just what I needed.
