« Great except for the food »

I enjoyed the room the outlook and the facilities. I had one meal that was terrible at the main restaurant and service fluctuated from might to night. If you charge a premium you should deliver the same.

« Part time Novotel »

Nice resort that needs to remember that it is part of a chain. It profiteers during the winter months and does not allow Accor plus benefits to many areas. The cost per night is high for a "hotel" that does not do room service during your stay or have wifi available. It benefits by the fact that all the accomodation in the Snowy region have poor service and Australians are increasingly going overseas for ski holidays as no one is catering for a quality hotel experience in the region.

« Staff are great, lots to do. »

Problem is that the infrastructure hasn't grown, and there are a lot more visitors. At breakfast we had to wait for knives and forks, clean plates and glasses, also the food was running out. This is getting worst each year, so don't say it was a one off. Also I suggest you have toilets near the play ground, the kids cant make it to the cafe.

We alway have a good time. My young children enjoy the pool and the beach. (The pool may need to be cleaned more regularly) the new play ground is great. They were excited to watch the second slide get put it. When it was time to go home, my children were very mad at me! They wanted to stay longer My young son just received his Wally letter. Thanks he love it!!

« Met all expectations »

The new Reception location is a vast improvement on what used to be and, as always, the check-in (and check-out) process was smooth & speedy. However, parking to attend to the check-out process is tedious. As always, the Apartment fully met expectations (except there was no breadknife). The Christmas Lunch was again superb, with a fantastic range of fare to suit all tastes. The only (tiny) negative was that the firewood was in lumps that were too big to readily catch fire; also, it was of a type that doesn't burn well anyway.

« Beauty, serenity and activities galore, this resort has it all! »

Loved it, as always. Plenty to do and plenty of ways to relax. There is only two things about the resort I would change. First up, the fitness centre and pool, why does 8am need to chime before it opens. With 2 young kids, the only chance I have for the gym and a swim is 6am. Second up, the breakfast buffet. I am a repeat visitor and look forward to every return, except for the plain and boring Helga's bread from the buffet. YUK! Anything would be better, or even just variety! Otherwise, great resort, friendly staff, keep it up.
