Kasees is a small lodge near the top of the hill overlooking the village of Thredbo. However, it is directly above the central area of Thredbo (pub, cafe, supermarket and various other shops) so it is only a couple minutes walk down the hill and only about 5 minutes to walk back up the hill to the lodge.
Parking is very limited so chances are you will have to try your luck on the road next to the lodge. In summer, that is OK but in winter it would be very difficult. Chances are you will have to drop off your bags at the lodge and then drive to the bottom of the hill to park your car. The same situation applies to most lodges at Thredbo.
Service was very friendly and the lodge has a cosy, inviting feel to it. I'm sure many people have had enjoyable winter evenings meeting other guests in the lounge. Most of the rooms are very close to the lounge area so if people are up at midnight enjoying themselves in the winter, there may be some noise in the rooms. However, I stayed in the summer when there were not many other guests so I'm not sure what the noise might be like on a busy winter's night.
The rooms are large enough and I think all bedrooms have windows facing directly towards the mountain, so on fine winter days you would get a nice view of the bottom part of the mountain. Rooms share access to a balcony (not sure how many rooms have access to each balcony), so that could be a nice place to spend some time on a sunny winter's day.
The rooms were not modern but they were clean and satisfactory. Our room rate (in the summer) was pretty good. I'm not sure what the rates are like in the winter. I imagine it is quite a popular place in the ski season and they are probably fully booked most of the time.
The only drawback is the limited parking but that applies to most places at Thredbo and it is only a minor inconvenience on the day you arrive and the day you leave. You don't need your car while you are at Thredbo. Provided the winter rates are reasonable, which they probably are, I would be happy to stay here again.
