An easy 3-hour drive from Melbourne, Mt Buller is a long-time favourite ski break destination for Victorians.
The 2017 season is almost here so it's time to start planning your snow escape.
While technically a trip to Mt Buller can probably be done in one really long day, with the mountain being home to more than 300 hectares of skiable terrain, 22 lifts (the largest network in the state) and a village filled with accommodation, restaurants and bars, it’s best to stay for at least a night to get the most out of your stay
That’s why we’ve come up with a guide to the top accommodations at Mt Buller. Check out our list below that will save you time researching, and leave you more time planning out which run to schuss down first.
A 4.5-star hotel offering ski-in/ski-out access, Hotel Pension Grimus has stolen the top stop on TripAdvisor for Mt Buller accommodation. It’s got the character of a European ski lodge, complete with vintage ski posters and exposed wooden beams in some of the rooms.
Offering an Austrian alpine experience, Enzian Hotel is a short drive from Mt Buller and Mt Stirling (or a 10-mintue walk to the slopes). The hotel has an Austrian-style bar for a true après ski experience as well as a restaurant serving hearty meals, perfect after a day on the slopes.
Free Wi-Fi in public areas
Range of room types including apartments for up to 10 guests
Breakfast included in hotel room rates (not for apartments)
It’s almost too easy to get to the slopes from this ski-in/ski-out hotel that’s super close to the lifts too. Guests can get cosy by a fireplace, warm up in the spa, or take in mountain views from the balcony..
There’s an indoor pool, sauna, hot tub at the hotel, plus massage treatments on offer
A great budget option compared to some of the other mountain-side options, Sugarbush Lodge and Apartments features a bunch of different room types from hotel room to apartment. It’s 400 metres from the centre of the village and has a bar, pool, spa, sauna and ski hire available to guests
Hotel-style rooms include continental breakfast
Apartment rooms are ideal for groups and can accommodate up to eight
A Mt Buller staple for more than 50 years, Alpine Retreat offers comfortable accommodation in the village. There’s also the Off-Piste Bar at the hotel and an Italian Alp-inspired restaurant, Dolomiti, on-site offering authentic italian dishes and wines.
If you're searching for the most convenient accommodations near the MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground) these options should do the trick. They're but a stone's throw away from the venue, as well as much of what Melbourne CBD has to offer.
