We booked Lantern last minute for the long weekend. We have stayed previously and again were warmly welcomed by the friendly staff. We stayed in apartment 13 with 2 adults, a 6yr old, 3yr old and 8 month old. As all apartments are individually owned and furnished etc, we found apartment 13 to be quite fresh and modern. We also had an allocated car space. It was perfect for our short stay, but as the kids were on a foldout, it could be quite tight for a longer stay. The views from Lantern are amazing. It is also quite affordable compared to most accommodation in Thredbo. We would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for staying with us again. We really do appreciate your comments and hope that you enjoyed the long weekend in Thredbo. There wasn't much snow on the ground but there was plenty of action with the fireworks, Potbelleez and pool parties. Hope to see you in Thredbo again.

I am sorry that you were disappointed not to have a parking space. The one bedroom apartments do not have parking on site and this is explained on our website and in other booking sites. In busy periods this can mean parking in the one of the free overnight parking areas in the village. These are between 2 and 8 minutes walk from our building. Our building is only 3 minutes walk from the Village Square so once your car is parked it is not really necessary for getting around the village anyway. In winter time there is also a free shuttle bus service around the village that stops at our driveway every 10 minutes or so.

If you definitely want parking you can book a 1 bedroom deluxe apartment or one of our larger apartments, they all have on site parking.

We do upgrades and replacement of furniture regularly. None of the beds in the building are older than 4 years, The dining tables and coffee tables are date but we are awaiting delivery of new dining tables, coffee tables and bedside tables in August . We will continue to work on the apartments to ensure they are modern and well equipped as our aim is t to be the best value for money apartment accommodation in Thredbo.

Thanks for taking the time to submit a review

Great views and in room facilities. Easy access into the village via the direct staircase. If you're visiting Thredbo keep Lantern apartments in mind for your accommodation. Very affordable and accommodates for couples, families or groups. Lower levels have massive balconies to BBQ, if the boys can withstand the cool tempertures.

Room Tip: Bring your gym, squash racquet & swimming gear. The fitness centre is massive!!!

Thanks again for staying

Fully self contained apartment had everything we needed! It was clean, relatively modern & spacious. We got the deluxe apartment so it came with a reserved parking spot which is very handy, as finding parking close by is very difficult in Thredbo even out of ski season.
Lantern is at the top so almost all of the balconies would have a great view. Plus when you book the accommodation they have offers on the lift passes, national park entry etc. Staff we very friendly and down to earth. Very happy with our stay!

Room Tip: A deluxe apartment has a guaranteed parking spot which is essential as it a fair hike uphill (if you...

We spent almost a week at a one bedroom loft apartment - the apartment was very clean and modern. Unbelievable views and very cosy. The staff were very helpful and friendly, nothing was too hard. This is our second year staying at the apartments, we look forward to staying at Lantern again in 2014.

We had a one bedroom apartment which was a little tired and in need of a fresh coat of paint and some updating. It is advertised as having a king bed. The bed is actually 2 small singles together, not the normal 2 king singles, making it a queen size bed at best. This was our main complaint. It is in the agreement when booking that the guests are to make sure all cutllery, glassware and crockery is washed clean ready for the next lot of guests. We had to wash everything before we used it as it was fairly grubby. Having said all that, we did have car space which was much appreciated. We left the car there during our 4 night stay and walked everywhere. Yes, it is a bit of a hike back up from the village, but hey, we needed the exercise and it was lovely and quiet. The heating working very well. The manager on checking in and out was very friendly and helpful and the views were lovely. We were lucky enough to have snow falling during our stay which added to the enjoyment.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Since all our apartments are individually owned there is some variation between condition and bedding, there is a rolling program on refurbishing, we try to keep up to date. I'll review each individual bedding configuration on the website. Thanks again for taking the time, hope to see you again soon.

I guess I should have known that there would be lots of stairs! It was a bit of a killer.. But the apartments are great with fantastic views. The small kitchen was adequate - with 4 of us the room was a bit tight but ok. I was surprised how quiet it was.
Would stay again.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review, Thredbo could be called the town of stairs, one of the few downsides of living in a ski resort, , though i guess everything is excercise, and you really do get rewarded with the view. Hope to see you back again soon.
