I am reviewing the Grimus Ski Hire and not the hotel. We visited a few ski hire places to "check out" the prices and any available packages. Although prices were very similar across the mountain, we went back to Grimus as the service was friendlier, more personal and caring. We were first time skiers (two full days) and had difficulties,... More

We stayed at the Peninsula Hotel next door so I can't rate the Hotel Grimus. What I can do is tell you about their fabulous restaurant. You'll walk straight into an Austrian style of building and decor. The Austrian owner even dresses the part, he's been in Mt Buller for 54yrs and enjoys having a chat with his customers -... More

Wow, Pension Grimus is fabulous. We stayed in a Chalet Spa triple for our family of 3 - my 12 year old sons' first ski holiday. The room was spacious, warm and comfortable. In fact the doonas were too hot - if that can be a problem in the snow! The included full breakfast was delicious and staff were all... More

We stayed here July 2014 with our 2.5 years old daughter. Our Chalet room was spacious and comfortable. Like other reviewers here, I already knew I was going to get a view of a brick wall from my window, so I wasn't surprised when I got there. It's great to be able to do all the ski hire at the...

Thank you for the feedback on our property. Our hotel is only about 50 metres from the loading station of the Abom Chairlift. If snow conditions permit it is possible to easily ski to the lift, otherwise it is just a very short flat walk. Our restaurant seats 100 persons. Fortunately for us it is usually very heavily booked and... More

They really have great staff - every one of them! Really helped when I stuffed up my booking and arrived early, finding another place for us to stay one night.

We (family of 3) just spent 2 nights at 'Pension Grimus'! Could not recommend this place enough!! Location was amazing......ski in, ski out. Staff were all professional and friendly especially the lovely girl at reception. The restaurant was fantastic....you have to try the 'salzburger nockerl'. The chalet has its own ski hire and retail outlet which is super convenient and... More
