Chalet Sonnenhof
Reviewed 5 August 2013

We just got back from a week's stay at Sonnenhof and can't wait for next time! I don't even know where to start - everything was great. The chalet has a bit of a European feel and the people who own and work there are all so lovely. The food was absolutely amazing every single night - exactly what we wanted after a day on the mountain. The bar has tonnes of character and we actually preferred coming back and having a few drinks there (much cheaper and more fun) rather than any of the other pubs. They do a great apple martini! The rooms were basic but very comfortable and the lack of TV was actually a huge benefit - it was just the push we needed to get out into the social areas, play some pool and meet the other guests. It was a really good week - can't fault it at all.
A couple of personal preferences - there is a cafe at the bottom of Eyre T-bar which has great burgers and hot chocolates, the Base which at the bottom of Perisher Manor does good lunches with a decent amount of atmosphere and lots of gluhwein. These places avoid the canteen feel which seems to be standard everywhere else, and due to the average snow conditions we spent a lot of time at both. Until it started snowing anyway!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone who will listen. Do yourself a favour and book it. We will definitely be back.

Our family of 6 recently stayed in the Chalet. We booked a family room that includes breakfast and dinner. When we arrived, Karen offered us an extra room for the children complimentary! The staff are very friendly and helpful. It was also my husband's birthday the week we stayed and I requested the chef to bake a chocolate cake for 30 people. He gladly made a delicious chocolate cake and even wrote Happy Birthday! They also offered to take us to the skitube with all our luggage on our last day. Left my son's ski boots and they are happy to deliver it to the rental place for us in Cooma! Thank you Karen and Neville!

My partner and I went to Perisher over the long weekend for one night only. We did not have accommodation arranged prior.
We booked this accommodation on the day we wanted to stay and were offered a special price of $99 per person with hot breakfast included.
The rooms were clean and comfortable. We didn't require anything other than a bed and bathroom and that's all the room had. The room had a double bed and a single bed as well as an ensuite.
There was a communal tv/living room with a pool table as well as a sauna downstairs.
The service was incredibly friendly and we were made to feel at home.
I would definitely pay more to stay here again, close to the snow. We had planned to stay in Jindabyne to save money but we are so glad we didn't have to worry about driving after an exhausting day in the snow.

We had a 3 night stay mid week and it was perfect. The hosts were friendly, the food was amazing especially the crackling on our entree. We loved it so much that bowls of extra crackling were put on the tables. The views from the room and dining room were stunning. We were lucky we could ski straight from the front door to the lifts. Bonus was having the overlander pick us up in the afternoon. The rooms were fine although the bathroom was a bit on the small side! No TV in the room but one in the lounge room. Fabulous roaring fire. The spa was welcome after skiing all day. Only thing was kids using the hallway as a running track! Loved Chalet Sonnenhof and highly recommend.

We spent our skiing holiday at Sonnenhof this year and were very impressed. The room was a good size and the view from our window was spectacular. The food was excellent, although it could have been a little hotter on a few occasions. But the presentation, quality and variety made up for that. The owners, Neville & Karen, and their staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. They made us feel so welcome. Loved the downstairs bar - with all the writing on the walls, the old chairlift seat, the T-bar and the chopper blade! Would love to see either a later seating for dinner or a more relaxed time frame - sometimes it felt like we were being rushed through dinner. Overall, a great little chalet with the friendliest staff and great amenities. Loved the spa!!!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the mountain have the best views

Thank you Chalet Sonnenhof for a memorable trip down to the snow! Not only did they cater to our every need - including keeping the bar open a little longer for us - they also helped me out when things went a little pear-shaped with my snow gear.They really do go out of their way to make you feel like your part of the crew; families, friends and employees.
Rooms were reasonable and had the basics included which seemed to be the exact same for the more expensive hotel further down on the snow where more friends of ours were staying (they also said we had a better bar area) We will definitely be back!
