8/10 Very good

very affordable place
affordable price for just sleeping-in on the way to the snow. hopefully they will soon upgrade the room heating to a reverse cycle A/C as the radiant heater is not enough even thought it was already spring it still gets could at night. I can just imagine in the middle of winter. comfy beds and clean linen. hot shower was also great as water pressure was high.check-in and out with no hassles. accomodating people at reception. won't mind coming back again.

4/10 Fair

Basic accommodation
Hotel was basic and aged. Felt like walking into a time warp straight into the 80s. If you just want basic accommodation for a decent price then this is ok.

6/10 Good

Comfortable beds but beware of wifi and showers
Short stopover for a family ski trip. All accommodations in Jindabyne were fully booked, hence we booked in Berridale, which is about an hour plus drive to Perisher. Beds were comfortable. However, the free wifi doesn't work. The hot and cold shower was erratic, changing from hot to cold constantly, and therefore you can only do a quick shower.

Women staff didn't know if there's a hair dryer in the room and did not want to let us use spare heater. Room was clean, however, no towels or bedsheets. Hot water keep turning cold whenever other rooms use water. No microwave in the room. Dishes and mugs dirty.
