Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Thank you for a truly wonderful stay at Barrakee. Kylie and Darren made our family feel so welcome from the moment we arrived. The front of house staff provided friendly, efficient service and the complimentary daily transfers to the ski lift ran perfectly. Heartfelt thanks to the outstanding catering team for providing our highly sensitive coeliac daughter with delicious, safe and perfectly varied meals for the duration of our stay. Kylie’s meticulous attention to detail watching over every meal served to my daughter (even on Kylie’s scheduled nights off!) was next level and beyond appreciated. It was by far the best experience we’ve ever had where the knowledgeable staff made it feel like no trouble at all to cater to dietary needs. We look forward to staying again in the future!

Kylie and Darren made us feel right at home and we didn't want to leave! Beautiful secluded location was a welcome escape from the crowds. The staff are vey friendly. There is a massive games room for kids with fussball table and classic arcade games. Every night we played cards by the fireplace with new friends after a beautiful three course dinner. We are coming back!

This is the second time we’ve spent a week at Barrakee and each time has been our best snow holiday ever. From the first welcoming hug, we felt like family, not just guests. Nothing was ever too much trouble, and Kylie and Darren did everything to make our stay super comfortable, restful and unforgettable. One of the biggest standouts is the food. As a busy Mum, having breakfast and dinner cooked for me is wonderful. The chef has created an interesting and varied menu that we looked forward to every day. But the best part is how far they go to accommodate special dietary needs. My two children and I all have multiple food allergies and each of us was catered for with such care and consistency. We’ve never stayed anywhere before where our dietary needs were genuinely no big deal and we didn’t feel like we were putting anyone out by requesting them. Such an awesome feeling for an allergy Mum! Thanks so much Kylie, Dylan and the whole kitchen team. The Barrakee level of care didn’t stop there. The housekeeping staff were amazing. There’s nothing like coming in from a big day on the mountain to find beds made, fresh towels if we needed them and everything so cosy in our room. And the front of house staff were no exception to the rule. Again, nothing was too much trouble, and they made us feel so cared for and at home. We didn’t want to leave! Thanks for such a magical holiday team Barrakee! Xx

We stayed at Barakee Lodge for several nights with a large group of families from school to catch the last of the Spring snow. It was such a special trip thanks to the care and attention taken by Kylie, Darren & team. We had a 3 person room with ensuite which was perfect for our needs. The drying and storage facilities were excellent which set us up well to head out each morning. The shuttle trip to and from Perisher was reliable and efficient. However, the highlight was the bar and restaurant! Breakfasts were always plentiful and delicious and the dinners were something else! Each night we had an amazing 3-course meal with one extra special buffet evening bringing together others from our party from the adjacent lodge. All in all a fabulous stay and well worth the money:) We look forward to returning!

We recently stayed at Barrakee Ski-Lodge (on-snow lodge) for the first time. The hosts were fantastic, the rooms were clean, comfortable and warm! All towels and linen are provided which makes travelling up the mountain so much easier. The restaurant food was very tasty and the bar atmosphere really welcoming. Although the lodge is a short distance from the Perisher terminal, the owners have a free oversnow service that runs multiple times person day which is super convenient. We were personally greeted on arrival by the hosts, shown to our room and given a tour of the lodge. At all times we felt like this was a home away from home. We'll definitely be returning and do recommend this lodge to anyone travelling to Perisher as it has something for everyone.

This small intimate lodge does such a great job at allowing children to have a fun time whilst still providing a cosy, convivial, chic environment for adults to enjoy pre dinner drinks followed by a beautifully presented, very high quality 3 course dinner each evening. The small but varied wine and drinks list met our needs (which is saying something as we are a bit fussy about wine!).Liked the Malbec and the Gavi. The drying rooms and ski storage area works well and my son enjoyed the sauna. The rooms are compact (bring limited luggage - you only need ski gear and something to wear in the evening) not luxurious but although basic the beds were comfortable, the room warm and provided all you need for a good nights sleep. Barrakee,being 2.1km from Perisher center, provides oversnow transport - two runs in the morning and two in the afternoon. This worked well for us. The grandchildren had ski school in the morning, followed by lunch and some more skiing making the 3.45 return to Barrakee suitable for the little ones. On the couple of occasions that some of our party wanted to return earlier Hans Oversnow provides an efficient (if a little costly) taxi service. More experienced skiers can ski back to the lodge. Skiing is not a cheap holiday and I thought that for a group of 7, grandparents, parents and 3 children, Barrakee represented exceptional value for money, It was relaxed enough for the kids to thoroughly enjoy themselves but also provided great food, wine and atmosphere for the adults so that even the fussy old grandmother (me) had a great time! Kylie, Darren and all of the staff were wonderful. It is hard to describe but there is just something rather special about this lodge.. Our family are already planning to come back.

An amazing stay! All the staff, and in particular Kylie, could not have been more accommodating for our stay with our 9 month old baby. They are very well set up for families and couples alike. The food and atmosphere were both excellent! We will be back for sure!

The host was inhospitable and my family and friends felt like we were a burden instead of been guest at the lodge No fresh towels were provided the hallways dirty and rooms were not vacuumed and no Covid safe measures. We felt like we were at a school camp instead of a family getaway overly priced and under delivered and the owner’s rude behaviour. Only positive point the chief for dinner.

Cannot say a bad word about Barrakee. The owners and staff were so wonderful! We had the best stay and cannot wait to start organising our next snow trip. Nothing was too much trouble. Was so refreshing to have dinner while the kids played in the toy room. Food was delicious too!! Huge thank you Kylie, Darren and staff!
