The Coachman is one of those magic places to stay, snuggled away in the snow cover hills of Smiggins. The lodge is a cosy hideaway managed by Carolyn and Greg, two of the nicest people you could meet who welcome you to The Coachman as though it is your home away home. Greg and Carolyn are to be commended on...

We had a really enjoyable weekend hear in Mid August. As with all lodges in the area the rooms are basic but very comfortable and warm. The real highlight is the quality of food, service and company at the Coachman... Sitting back in front of the fire, drinking a few beers, eating complimentary snacks and listening to live music on...

Just stayed here with 2 friends last week. The place is delightfully old fashioned, like a real 80's feel about it with pine everywhere but totally gorgeous and spotlessly clean! Very comfortable room with good beds and linen. Carolyn & Greg are really lovely people and nothing is too much trouble. The food is amazing, excellent cooked breakfast and a...

Just spent a week here. Very cosy and homey feel. The couple that run it, Greg and Caroline, are so warm and friendly and you feel like a guest in their home rather than a customer. They learn everyone's names and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The kitchen staff are happy to accommodate any dietary...

We stayed at the Lodge for 7 days. The team, headed by Greg and Carolyn, were fantastic, nothing was too trouble and you felt like you were staying with friends. The food was great, dinner was a 3 course a la carte meal and was fantastic every night. The facilities at the Lodge including the bar, open fire, games and...

We stayed at the Royal Coachman ski lodge for 12 days. During that time the staff were friendly and efficient. The meals (buffet breakfasts and 3 course dinners) were first class and our dietary requirements efficiently were catered to (as were those of other guests). Relaxing by the fire with a hot chocolate or drink from the bar in the...

We spent 7 nights at the Coachman. It's a great family lodge with plenty on offer to keep the whole family happy. A separate kids and adults TV area, pool table (doubling as a table tennis table). Free wifi for guests. Kids and adults eat at separate meal times. Food is fantastic too with a wide variety on offer at...

The Royal Coachman stay was excellent. The lodge has about 23 rooms, a games room, kids TV room, adult TV room, sauna and bar. There is a extensive choice breakfast each morning and a sit down 3 course dinner at night. The food was great. There is 10 car parking spots outside the lodge and its only about 200 metres...

Great snow- excellent hospitality- and superb food. What a wonderful week my wife and I spent at The Coachman. There were very few down sides - only the severe winds on the ski slopes. Caroline and Greg, the new Coachman managers, went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We look forward to returning next year.

Adequate rooms and great lounge - best quality food I have had and most important is the hosting care - welcome from start to departure. Smiggins is a good base for Perisher. Short walk to the piste and lifts.
