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

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
