We enjoyed our first family trip to Perisher in August, and spent two nights at Sponars. We pulled into the car park and our little one was able to run out of the car directly into the snow. Plenty of space for her to play.
The room is very basic, but the beds are comfortable and warm which is what you need at the end of a long day. Be warned - there wasn't a TV which shocked our 5 year old, but she got over that really quickly. Our room was clean and sufficient for what we needed.
Something we didn't realise was that breakfast and a delicious 3 course dinner was included in the price of our room. Not sure if this is always available or just peak seasons, but definitely worth asking about when you book. The meal was delicious so highly recommended.
I also didn't realise they had an indoor heated pool, so next time we will be packing our swimmers! It seemed really popular with the other guests.
Sponars also offers a shuttle bus to the snow fields in Perisher which is super convenient given the limited car parking. Full ski hire is also available.
Above all, the service was absolutely brilliant. The staff couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. We will definitely return!More
