Stayed here for 2 nights on 28/29 December (no longer Rydges). Had never been to Thredbo before so didn't know what to expect. The hotel is definitely old and needs an upgrade - it's got that tired ski lodge look about it. We had a room on the 3rd floor - no lifts - but found a side door just outside our room (Room 318) to a small road beside the hotel, so didn't have to carry bags all the way up the stairs. Room definitely needs an upgrade...but clean and comfortable though - king bed and small table/chairs - with a great view. Ceiling fan worked, but only to blow the breeze to the ceiling, even though you can switch it from winter to summer. Could not turn the air con down any lower so it was a bit stuffy, so had to sleep with the window open for fresh air. Had a drink at the pool bar - good selection of wine but very expensive. Had dinner at Cascades Restaurant on first night...good menu and the food was great, but the wait staff (one of the female supervisors with a bad attitude) was a problem and I had to complain. The hot buffet breakfast was awesome both mornings. Had a couple of meals at the hotel's tavern/pub which were really good. Reasonably priced drinks too, and it's also the local bottleshop. There's a handful of restaurants in the village surrounds to choose from, but be aware they are not cheap for either food or drinks. There is also a well-stocked supermarket in the village too. Great location - right opposite the ski lift the mountain. Will recommend this property if you don't have high expectations, but with new owners they might get around to renovating sooner than later.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 3rd floor (the top floor) have the best views, but can be stuffy in the warmer months. Most probably very good in the winter months!!

Stayed here recently for two nights, having travelled down from Sydney with my teenage son.
The accommodation package included twin share plus breakfast, and if you ask, a discounted 2 for 1 Kosiuszko Express Lift pass saving $30. It was good value! I also heard a couple bargaining for a second night if they could get breakfast for free. Which was obliged. Summer bargains, I booked ahead on the internet and obviously might otherwise have saved some bucks as a walk in...
The place is basic, but very clean and extremely close to everything. It is right across the road from the Express Chair lift and the building connects with the town centre.
Breakfast is fantastic!
The twin share room had 3 singles, tv, tea and coffee, mini bar/ fridge freezer, large bathroom and good cupboard space.
Given it was summer it was very quiet and a number of bars and restaurants associated with the accommodation were closed. But that posed no problems.
Free wifi in the lounge.
Would stay again.

Two nights to see 2013 out. Our room on the ground floor overlooking the pool and straight across to the slopes was large and well appointed. The rooms though dated are extremely well maintained . Room very clean and comfortable . Large windows to enjoy the mountain views!!!

Rooms very clean and staff from reception to the restaurant Cascades were friendly and efficient .

Parking at the hotel and our last minute rate included breakfast .

Congratulations to the manager of Cascades and staff . Large selection of cereals, fruits, Bircher muesli ,juices and hot breakfast bar including poached eggs , fried and scrambled . Being school holidays and New Years hotel was full but the staff made sure the breakfast was replenished .

We had dinner at Cascades . Though not full the restaurant had a lovely atmosphere and the manager seated us next to the window looking straight across to the mountain. The parpadelle with squid and prawns was delicious as was the chicken breast with goats cheese and asparagus and potato gratin . We shared the greened beans with almonds - compliments to the chef for all meals . Having read reviews on Tripadvisor did not disappoint.


The spa is nice after enjoying one of the many fabulous walks .

Whilst our room was adjacent with the pool no noise .

Excellent value !

Room Tip: Room on ground floor with large windows overlooking the pool great view of the slopes

Previous reviewer says "they are not Rydges anymore". If that's true: why are they still using the name, inlcuding on Trip Advisor. This was the 3rd time I've stayed here, most recently before last week wHas three years ago. Also during Xmas week. Our room was on the third floor (no lift), small and rather stuffy. Fittings and paint-job from the last century (the 20th). No a/c, but a fan. Toilet didn't flush properly; lobby forlorn and rather shabby. Friendly but harried and slightly scatty staff on front desk. When I called to inform them about non-flushing toilet there was no answer after 16 rings. What if I'd been ill or had some emergency?

The saving grace: Cascades Restaurant. Breakfast was included and it was a standout--- hot and cold buffet; well-prepared, well-presented, and very flavourful. Very good, smart staff too. (Same for dinner there the night before).

Bottom line : the hotel needs to lift its game -- at least to the level of its restaurant.

Room Tip: If you have trouble with stairs, make sure to ask for a room on the ground floor. No lift and no bell-boys/girls.

Two nights here were good. They are not Rydges any more but still gave us a welcoming drink as per the Rydges agreement. Parking needs to be policed better as its not easy to park in town even in summer.
The rooms are the same as they were 20 years ago which is sad as its a good Hotel needing a little tidy up. We set off the fire alarm by accident and staff were their very quickly at our door so thank you for that. No fire just very sensitive sensors.

The view from the room was wonderful and just waking up to the view each morning made it worth while.

Thank you for our room but maybe a little room upgrade would make this place even better.
