I have been staying at Sunshine for 38 years and have experienced many situations, some good and some pretty awful.
Matt McCormack has been the Inn Keeper for 9 years and has brought about some amazing changes. He is practically always on site with his door open and a welcoming personality.
The rooms are renovated to reflect the mountain environment and contain every necessity found in a modern hotel. My only complaint is that there is no room with 2 twin beds so unless you want to share a queen bed, one guest must sleep on a very hard pullout couch.
The staff are super,lots from "down under" including several from Perth who met for the first time at Sunshine. They are all friendly,polite and helpful which is a huge improvement over past years.
The food is excellent, prepared under the guidance of a swiss chef and meals are well priced.
The check in/check out area at the base is well staffed and efficient. It's too bad the luggage is not delivered more promptly to guests on arrival.
This is a hotel for all ages-my family of 10 spent New Year's here, the 3 year old in Mountain School, the 6 year old in ski school all day and the grandparents, parents and 2 teens skied in excellent conditions.
I hope to continue my visits to Sunshine as long as my legs hold out
