Very comfortable lodge. The food was fabulous-the chef provided restaurant quality meals included in the price-fixed menu. Very convenient for skiing and being looked after. Relaxing atmosphere for families and couples.

Thank you so much for taking the time to give us such positive feedback. Really glad you enjoyed the food so much. As you know dinning at Barrakee is a highlight for our guests and we are very proud of our Food and Service Team.
Yes we are in a great spot for skiing, centrally located next to the North Perisher T-Bar and just a short slide to the Interceptor Chair Lift. For those who don't like to ski in, ski out, our convenient complimentary shuttle (set times) drops you right into the action at the Perisher Center.
A big thanks from us at Barrakee

We had a boys ski trip to Perisher last weekend and stayed at Barrakee from Friday Rick Terri and Dana were amazing hosts who looked after us pampered us and took care of us all weekend. We felt like we were looked after by amazing friends not ski lodge hosts. Ski in - ski out. Why would you do it any other way!!
The food was the biggest surprise..... outstanding on all fronts; even the immense amounts of schnapps and other offerings.
The lodge atmosphere was relaxed and friendly and sitting with different people at dinner time made us all feel like friends.
Thanks you guys for an awesome weekend.... Sam and the boys

This has to be Perisher Valley's best kept secret. The team at Barrakee are awesome. Les, Rick and Terry are wonderful hosts, providing great hospitality and service...and Peter's food is definitely the best on the mountain. A lovely lodge with comfortable, spacious accommodation. We'll definitely be back. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

We have to tell you, when people take the time to give us such kind praise it makes our mission of getting your holiday right an enjoyable effort. The fact that so many of our wonderful guests are good enough to take the time to give us such positive feed back is fantastic and we thank you so much for that.
As you know the Kitchen Team puts in the hard yards to bring you a dinning experience, so Peter is thrilled that you think the Barrakee food "...is definitely the best on the mountain" .
We hope to see you back around our cosy fire again soon. A big thanks from all the Barrakee Team :)

What a wonderful experience we had as a last minute booking for our weekend away in the snow. As we were trying to pack in as much time on the slopes that we could Barakee were very accommodating in picking up and dropping off our luggage. Nothing was a bother, from keeping my very fussy newly vegetarian teen fed to three courses of superb dishes equal to any fine dining experience I have had.
The lodge was superbly appointed with no fuss but homely warmth, very welcoming, comfortable and functional. You have a choice of mixing with other guests or spending time in front of the fire absorbed in relaxation.
Thank you so much to all the staff and special mention for my lovely birthday surprise and all time favourite dessert, lava cake candle and all and I loved the after dinner mint to finish the night off. Best birthday weekend ev-er !!

Thank you so much for such a fantastic review. We are so pleased you had a great weekend. We are even more pleased it was celebrating your Birthday and we were able to help make it a memorable one.
We agree, Barrakee is a special place but it's great when our valued guests take time to let us know we are getting it right.
There are many great places here in the snow but we are really proud of Barrakee. It seems to have a great ambience for families and couples alike. There are plenty of spots for the kids to explore with separate TV and play rooms and the adults have the fireside Bar and Lounge Room and even the Sauna to kick back and relax.
Thank you also for your kind review of our food. Our Kitchen Team is lead by an Award Winning Chef and takes great pride in bringing you a quality dinning experience every night.
Remember you don't have to wait for your next Birthday to come back but we will have the candles on standby just in case! Thanks again from all the Team at Barrakee :)=

A crazy weekend of weather. Floods and Pouring rain, followed by freezing temps and beautiful snow...if you want to experience the true mountain lodge life whilst visiting the snowy mtns of NSW, stay at Barakee ski lodge. Stayed with my family of 5. Clean and relaxing lodge with quality food.
I have never experienced such hospitality in any lodge in my 8 yrs of snowy holidays in NSW. Food was FANTASTIC! Peter the chef is to be congratulated. Les picking us up in the tractor in the pouring rain to save us!! And nothing was too much trouble for Terry the Manager helping us and the children. What a find!!a trip we will want to invite our friends to in the years ahead. Only a 5 min tractor ride away to front valley..Thankyou Barakee for a great stay

Wow, what a lovely review. You have put an extra spring in our step here at Barrakee today!
You are right, that was some big action in the mountains in the last few days! It was one of those "weather events" as Perisher experienced the full force of Mother Nature. At one stage we were even (briefly) cut off from the rest of the World!
We are very proud the Team here at Barrakee kept it all running smoothly and your comments confirm, it was business as usual and all our guests we happy, safe and having a great time.
If the Aussie Alps ever force you indoors for a day we are very happy that Barrakee provides a fantastic ambient spot to enjoy the wild weather outside. Our Bar and comfy Lounge area around the beautiful cracking Log Fire. Our cosy TV rooms, video and book library can make relaxing a good option. Not to mention the Sauna and Squash Court if you're feeling more active.
The great thing is the storm you experienced has now left us with a beautiful top up of fresh dry powder snow.
Really glad you enjoyed the food so much. We have an Award Winning Chef and Barrakee prides itself on delivering a dinning experience every night of your stay.
We are so happy you found us here at Barrakee and we really appreciate you have taken the time to give us such wonderful feedback.
We look forward to welcoming you back to our snow covered doors for many seasons to come :)
