Very nicely renovated, classy and romantic dining room - just as the pics on their website. Beautiful view of snow laden gum trees as you have your meal. Meals were ok - they do try, but did not have the flavor, snap and pop I'd expect from a top class restaurant that they're trying to be. Also, vegetarians, dont bother - nothing for you on the menu and well, you'll get the dish sans meat. Service was pretty good - once or twice we got the sense that it was a bit forced. Wendy was great however, knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. Pre-paid guests might have had a slightly shorter menu than other diners - what we saw on the display board outside was different to the menus given to us during our stay. Facilities were excellent, drying rooms, etc, ski in, ski out, not far from the runs & ticket office. Just be aware that it'll cost you close to $100 in oversnow transport to get you gear up there and back to the car park. Didn't see much of Simon, except when he was lighting the fire or working on his ski-do parked outside. The mezzanine suite is in reality a lot smaller than the photos suggest, and don't drink too much - the stairs up to the mezzanine is little more than a ladder (you can't turn you back to it and walk down). Sure we'll stay there again, we had a great time - just next time we'll try to haggle a more fitting cheaper price....
