Enjoyed our first holiday in the snow with the kids. After skiing all day they still had plenty of energy to play in the soft fresh snow just outside at Barrakee Lodge, making snowmen and using the lodges toboggans to slide down the hills (no queues!). The adult 3 course dinners were superb. Restaurant quietly meals, warm fireplace with plenty of lounge chairs. They have a well stocked bar, and plenty of chocolates and snacks for the kids to purchase too. The rooms, games rooms for the kids/tennagers, TV & DVD room and the facilities were great, always warm suits families or couples. The sauna was a welcome relaxation place after skiing all day.Good drying rooms, storage for skies and snowboards and full laundry with detergent available. Kids said when we back to the snow we have to stay at Barrakee lodge. They liked the novelty of the snow mobile ride to the front valley at Perisher every morning and afternoon. Thanks to the friendly crew at Barrakee Lodge for a great family holiday.

We stayed for 3 nights. Excellent lodge with everything that we needed. Great room, amazing food and terrific hospitality by our hosts. We were very well looked after.
We stayed at a time when there was no ski in ski out due to lack of snow. This meant the need for specific times for being dropped off to the main terminal and picked up at the end of the day. We felt that there could be more flexibility in these times as it mean't the need to pay a taxi fare if you wished to return to the lodge outside these times.
Other than that, we highly recommend Barrakee Lodge and hope to return next year.

Thank you so much AOakley03 for taking the time to give us such a great review. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay so much and particularly the food and hospitality.
It is a big shame, at that time, we didn't have a bit more snow. We hope on your next visit you will be able to ski in and out at your leisure.
A big thank you from the Barrakee Team, we look forward to seeing you back.

We stayed for 4 nights at Barrakee with our 2 children aged 4 and 6. This was our second visit to the lodge and it was again fantastic. Amazing food, great cozy lounge area and lovely staff. Everyone was amazing Terry, Les, Peter and Rick and special thanks to Sarah and Lauren who the kids thought were fab. The new games room with air hockey, table football etc. is a great addition and serving kids dinner first is a stroke of genius. Thanks everyone, see you next year.

We flew over from Perth to visit this special place again. I couldn't recommend anywhere higher. Each day the 3 course evening meal was exceptional, and staff were very friendly and catered well for our 3 young children. Very cosy and warm lodge, no jumpers needed, while you relax after a day in the snow with a blissful gluhwein!!

Having stayed at quite a few lodges over the years, the Barrakee ski lodge is the best we've had the pleasure of visiting. You won't get better food at any ski lodge than at Barrakee and as any skier will tell you, nothing is more inviting than a warm cosy fire, with a great meal after a long day on the slopes. Rooms are quaint, well heated and kept spotlessly clean with really comfortable beds. All the amenities suited us perfectly: a TV room with lots of video choices and a games room where the kids can amuse themselves. The location is ideal and only a short over-snow transport from Perisher and the staff were exceptional. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone who wants to have a great skiing holiday in Perisher.

Thanks you Gavink718. We would like you to know your feedback and kind words mean a lot to us. All the Barrakee Team read our TRIPADVISOR reviews and it often puts an extra spring in our step when we hear we are getting it right! It's also one of the reasons that we will not rest on our laurels. We are very aware how valuable people's holidays and getaways are and our Team is committed to making your decision to stay at Barrakee a great one.
We also really appreciate your comments about the food. Pete, our Chef, puts in the hard yards to make your ski holiday more than just snow. We think we deliver a standard that is hard to beat anywhere on the mountain, but it's very nice when people confirm it for us.
We look forward to seeing you back. Thanks again from all the Team.
