I stayed in the Montafon apartment which is the best possible room you can get and it was pretty good (rather spacious and beautiful with a fire and views) but could be better and would stay somewhere else next time. It could use a little renovation, with things not being quite right (shower needed mending, holes in seats, carpet stains,... More

This accommodation is Austrian-themed, with old European charms and quirks. One should therefore not expect large spacious rooms and lighting. Stay here because:- 1. Ski in- ski out, good location to ski slopes 2. Bed is very snug 3. In-house restaurant Kaptans dinner is delicious. 4. Ski hire shop located in the hotel, extremely convenient. 5. Short walking distance to... More

Accomodation was comfortable but with that said this hotel is in dire need of a refurbishment. Whilst everything was functional is was very old and dated. Restaurant for dinner was amazing! I am not usually very excited about dining in hotel restaurants as a general rule but we ended up dining here 3 nights in a row. Lunch and breakfast... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. The virtual tours of our apartments and hotel rooms show exactly what to expect at our hotel. We are a traditional Tyrolean style, alpine chalet hotel and don't wish to or aspire to be a modern city style hotel. We regularly upgrade bedding, furnishings, fixtures and the like, but in...

Stayed as a family with 2 children for a week. Location to ABOM lift, the lift which takes you to the summit is ideal. You can ski in and out of this accomodation. It is halfway up the hill though so at night it's a bit of a walk in the cold to get to other dining options. As a... More

This hotel is in an excellent location. It is very unusual in its design as it's very pokey, but typical of the Austrian theme. We stayed in one of the family suites though which was very spacious. The staff are amazing. The hire shop is in the hotel and easy to kit and change if needed. Well worth the big... More

My 12 year old daughter and I stayed at Hotel Pension Grimus on the opening weekend of ski season at Mt Buller. We didn't expect much snow but there was enough to keep us going for two days. We were pleasantly surprised with the size of our room, which included a king bed (2 singles joined together) and a single... More

Not going to harp on as everyone whos anyone has stayed here. Love it, very expensive not really bang for buck but...... No where else are you going to have as good a time drinking and eating on the mountain. There's a vibe here and that vibe is " enjoy yourself now coz you have to wait a whole year... More

Room is clean, with mostly wood decoration, fit for 2 adult and 1 child (separate room with single bed). They have rental shop downstair, and ski lift is just outside of the hotel, and so is the bus stop. But the shop for grocery or snack is in the center. We didnt play ski as my son has broken ankle...

Lotte & Tim opened the hotel especially for a bunch of Targa competitors, so whilst we weren't there for skiing, and thankfully there wasn't any snow, we did get to enjoy the hotel. Unfortunately the restaurant wasn't open which is a real shame because it's rated #1 on Mt Buller and to be honest, we couldn't find a good meal... More

Sue and I went to Mt Buller recently with sister and her friend who hadn't been there for over 20 years. Going at end of season, found bargain (relatively speaking) accommodation in Pension Grimus. Split cost among 4 but we landed the wonderful Whistler apartment with 2 BR and 2 bathrooms. Checked into a warm inviting lounge with stone cladded... More
