Check in/out

Check in is at 4pm, except on Sundays which is not usually before 6pm. Mid Week you will probably find your room ready on arrival. Check out is 10am.

On arrival, do not expect to find a reception desk like a hotel.  If our managers, Carmen & Tony Ryan, are in the lodge when you arrive they will show you around.  Failing that there may be a Downhill member who could show you around until Carmen or Tony is free to assist you.

There is a whiteboard in the foyer indicating which room has been allocated to you.  When your rooms is ready for occupation a red magnet will be placed on the board next to your name.  If your room is not ready please proceed to the Transit Room on the middle level.  This room is available for storage of luggage until your room is ready and can also be used on your departure day.  The room contains a shower, toilet and changing area plus a refrigerator and a freezer for temporary storage of perishables.   You are welcome to come early on your arrival day and use the transit room and other club facilities until your room becomes available.
