Made a grueling 6-hour car trip from Sydney for Thredbo Winter Opening Weekend and was pleasantly welcomed by the warm staff at reception. Room was situated 2 floors down, thankfully we travelled light as there is no elevator. Well appointed guest room with comfy bed and clean bathroom with heater, the only downside - freshly painted walls gave us a...

Returning to the Black Bear Inn after 25 years. Still as gorgeous as ever. Cosy well appointed room, comfortable bed, impressive view. The BB inn offers a unique opportunity to experience European style accommodation inAustralia, with delicious meals and intimate dining available in the restaurant and pre dinner drinks in the cosy bar area. Very hospitable hosts.

Been there a few times now. The place just keeps growing on me. Good beer, great views, friendly staff, and really yummy food. The atmosphere is relaxed and the setting is one of the closest to an European ski resort tavern. Even with the relatively high prices is worth the visit!

Had a few good nights out just having drinks and enjoying the ambience. Tonight had a dinner and went back to our room quite full and satisfied. Portions are pretty big, and food is prepared in a stylish way with a great attention to deatail and taste.

Hosts called when we were late arriving on the "Snowy Ride" weekend to ensure all was ok. Road from Jindabyne is a bit sketchy with wildlife at night. Great place, cold beer and nice atmosphere. Bike friendly too!

We had a weekend away last minute. We paid premium rates. Property was very tidy, but very dated. Our room was small but had an incredible view and really everything we needed. Only gripe was super noisy because we were on ground floor and you could hear people above us when they were awake. Service outstanding and friendly
