Staffs are friendly. Meals especially dinner are really nice. It has 3 course meal for dinner and the food is fantastic. The room is a bit small for 3 but it's clean. Comfy bed. Little bathroom. Dinning area feels like home. Their pool is not that warm though. They need to put more heat. The steam room is quite comfy.... More

Pricey compared with staying off snow and good value compared to staying, DB&B, on snow. Room was adequate public faculties were comfortable, if a tad pedestrian. If you are planning on spending the day skiing then this is a great place to stay. If you have non skiers in your party they might feel a bit at a loose end.... More

This is a good place to stay with a group. The 10-minute shuttle to the ski lift is very convenient and it's great to have ski hire on site. There's a nice bar with pool, table football, ping pong, darts, and board games etc. All the kids in the two families in our group really enjoyed the evening activities. There's... More

This is a great place to stay for skiing in Perisher. It's affordable convenience being only 8km away from the ski resort, and a great option if you want to avoid the logistics of a Jindabyne stay, and maximise your time on the snow. We were a group of 3, and stayed in a one bedroom on level 2. The... More

There is limited clothes hanging/storage space in the room. Bathroom is too small. There is no lift in this place so if you have young children than you might need to book another place. Housekeeping is terrible. We are not the ones who leave early in the morning. We were knocked at least 03 times in between 7:30 to 9... More

The chalet sits by itself most of the way up the mountain. It is a short 10-15min drive from the Perisher snow fields. The heated pool and steam room are a good way to relax after a days skiing or boarding. The large lounge, bar an recreation area is very nice and comfortable. The big open fireplace in one part...

Steve and his team practice very good hospitality. Sponars is good value on snow accomodation. The food can be homely on some days and restaurant quality good on others, and is generally good, tasty and large servings. Buffet breakfast and 3 course sit down dinner. We were late getting in on Friday evening and they set aside plates of food... More

Great value stay as it is situated close to the resort and the comfort and facilities are good. Great value. Stayed here many years ago under previous management.

The chalet is most of the way up the mountain all on its own. It is close to the snow fields without being on them. They do provide a shuttle bus service to and from Perisher Ski resort (about 15 min drive), however, this is limited to three in the morning and three in the afternoon. There is nothing in... More
