We recently stayed for a weekend of skiing and found the Siesta Villa Motel to be outstanding!
The Spa King was well equipped (flat screen TV's, spa bath, rain shower), extremely clean and cosy with the fireplace, yes its not 5* luxury but it offers a much higher standard of accommodation than many other options in the mountains.
The stand out for this motel is definitely the staff - the team (notably the manager Jimmy) was exceptional, they would always assist where possible including the daily transfer to the ski tube - something which no other hotel seems to offer. Given we had a car accident on the way up and were left without a car this service meant we were still able to enjoy the snow on the best weekend of the season and Jimmy even made sure we got to the coach stop on Sunday to get us back to Sydney.
The breakfast daily was excellent, home cooked and fresh with lots of variety. We also ate dinner onsite and the food was very high quality pub grub at reasonable prices.
The location is a bit isolated being in East Jindabyne however this is resolved with the ski shuttle bus service or by having your own car - Jindabyne is only a few minutes away.
Overall - this lodge has everything you could wish for and was an extremely comfortable choice for the snowys. We will be back!More
