Wonderful ski lodge that cares about its guests

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 24 July 2023
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

Room tip: Book early for best early season deals.

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.
