“Wonderful awesome place to stay and ski”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Ros and Graham are the best hostess and host and their wonderful family and Werner and staff are the best. They have all care and all responsibility for their guests. There is no greater place to come back to every evening like the bar and lounge and then eat every evening in the restaurant it is just briliant. Not only is it ski in ski out and Falls Creek is absolutely magnificent but the Nelse "where else" is the best place to stay. They care about everybody and everything. We will always come back and we always stay here.

I took a chance on a last minute booking - Graham was most pleasant and helpful over the phone, and arriving at 8am was no trouble. The lounge was nice to come back to for a rest after lunch, then booked into our pleasant and adequate room on return at 4.30pm. The pool and spa were excellent to relax in after a good day of skiing - only slight gripe was that the sauna hadn't heated up yet.
Dinner was good - children's sitting at 6ish then adults at 7pm. Great quality meal and I enjoyed chatting to other guests on our communal table, and later with Graham and Ros. They are lovely hosts.
I thought it was all very good value and will certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: We had room 6, a double and a rollaway, and not too squashy.

Nelse is easily the best ski lodge in Australia. We have stayed here almost every year for 29 years. We've also stayed in several other top lodges in Falls Creek, Thredbo and Perisher. None of them come close to the comfort, convenience, excellent food, amenities and friendliness of Nelse. Graham and Ros do a fantastic job. We'll be back.

I have stayed with Ros, Graham & Glen at Nelse Lodge twice now for a couple nights each trip in the past couple of weeks, was made very welcome from the moment I arrived till the moment I left, in fact I didn't really want to leave.

I have travelled extensively around country Victoria for many years & rarely have I come across such a gem of a venue to stay, dine, drink & have hosts that find time to mingle and engage with their guests.

Totally happy with the room, excellent food, wonderful facilities & very reasonable pricing.

It looks like I will have to go back to Falls Creek again next week & I will only be making one phone call to one venue to book a room.

Graham, Ros and cheeky, but has to be said quite brilliant chef Glen will provide you, your partner and family with a home away from home. In fact, without being on top of each other, you could well become part of the 'family' !

The sign in the driveway on a cold damp January day said 'Pool, Bar, Spa', I was so lucky to stop by chance, thought the sign 'sold it'!

From a great welcome, to the beautiful clean room, drying room, to the indoor pool and the freshest and hottest spa on earth, this was how my stay started...

Dinner with their friends in the wonderfully European open plan living / dining bar area, complete with massive wood fire ready for the winter season, you could easily find space to be alone, or chat with the locals who also just drop in as their favourite spot for a drink and dinner, I was introduced to many that typical evening.

Enough said - I do not have shares, but the folk at Nelse are worth bragging about. They have after all been in the area for more years than most, and whilst it is a business, you are never left feeling any more, than a welcomed guest.

Look no further, do not pass go, trust me.

Thank you Nelse - hope to drop in again soon.

This is the third time we have stayed with Graeme and Ros at Nelse Lodge and, as always, had a fantastic time. Graeme and Ros, together with chef Glen, are the ultimate hosts. They go out of their way to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay. Rooms are clean, tidy and comfortable. The lounge, with an open fire, is a wonderful area for relaxing with friends. Meals are generous and beautifully cooked and presented. We are already planning our next visit.
