Fabulous location, great amenities and staff were amazing. Great to have ski school out the front door as everything else. The bar and restaurant meals were excellent, very quick and very reasonably priced. Great to have it all in house. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable with beautiful views, especially sunrise. Great hot shower.

There is more than one place to stay at the Whitt. We did not stay in the main building we stayed at the smaller Kandahar. I traveled with my husband and our 3 1/2 year old son. The rooms were a good size and we shared a bathroom. It was really clean and in a great location in Mt Buller.... More

Ok, I've been skiing at Buller only since the early 70's & was a member for about 35 years. I recently rejoined 2012 as I needed a club lodge at Mt Buller for my family to go to, like I had as a kid. Now at 54 with a 9 & 10yo & my 50th year on skis we so... More

Thank you for your kind words, you are absolutely on the money - The Whitt rocks! In 2014 there are a whole heap of improvements too, a new menu and a fabulous kitchen team headed up by our executive chef David. The bar has been refurbished, and the drink selection will be mind boggling. We have also installed a chocolate... More

I stayed here for two nights with 2 of my children on the Friday 31st August and 1st September 2012. It was me (one adult), my 15 yr old teenage son and 9yr old daughter. We loved our stay at The Whitt. The room was small, but it was entirely adequate for our needs. It's so close to the Bourke... More

We stayed here recently and not being a snow person did it off the net sight unseen. The room was 2 star but fine apart from no lock on the window and it was ground floor.

The Ski Club of Victoria has two lodges: the Whitt which is more upmarket, has restaurants, serves breakfast and has en-suite rooms; and the Khandahr, a typical lodge accommodation with shared facilities. We stayed in the Whitt. The staff are brilliant: experienced, mature, and helpful. Importantly they run a very tight and highly professional operation. We couldn't fault them. The... More
