“Kids think its the 'best hotel in the world'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We just returned from 2 nights at Marritz. Staff were helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and comfortable with great heating. Kids loved the kids play area, the proximity to the snow, the pick-up in the over-snow transport and the kids menu. Pool wasn't working when we were there but that would have sealed it for them.
Restaurant dinner menu was superb.
Look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Stayed in Townsend room and very comfortable

Lets begin by saying that the web pics do not do the Marritz Alpine justice. What a charming place to stay! They have the cutest bar area, with traditional log fire and the dining room is spacious and cosy at the same time. Can't wait to come with a big group of friends and sit at the spectacular feature table in the middle of the dining room.

The bedroom was huge with a massive white hotel standard King size bed and a spectacular view of Perisher Valley. Every other place we have stayed on the snow (5 times in Australia) has always had dreadful furnishings, with ugly 80s floral motifs and some places looking like the furniture had been dragged from the council pick-up (take note other lodges!) while charging over $500 a night!

So nice to be able to have a swim before dinner (one of the best steaks I have ever sampled). The indoor pool area is such a treat and also a very charming area with nearby sauna. It was a pleasure knowing this is where we were going at the end of each skiing day.

In terms of the staff - Kathryn (?) and her team could not have been more welcoming. We felt like we were staying with family (with only the good bits!). She obviously takes a lot of pride in the lodge and we felt that our pleasure was hers.

Cant wait to come back next year.

We have been staying at the Marritz now for over 10 years and wouldn't stay anywhere else.
We were a bit concerned about the change of management and losing a good friend in Carlos, the previous manager, however, we found the new management are just as wonderful and we hope to build a long standing relationship with Catherine and her family.
We feel like we are visiting friends when we arrive at the Marritz. The staff are friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The quality of the meals is fantastic, I'm sure the best onthe mountain.
We always stay in the Executive suite which is more than adequate for our family of 4 and of course the pool is an added bonus, it's lovely to relax in a warm pool at the end of a hard days skiing.
Yes, it is at the upper end of the price range but I feel that you pay for what you get and it depends on what you want for your holiday.
I do hope that that there are not too many changes made as we love it how it is.
Thanks for another wonderful ski holiday.
The O'Byrne family.

Room Tip: Executive suites have 2 rooms( and 2 toilets) which get you away from the kids!

We stayed for 3 nights, the management and staff were excellent, making us feel very comfortable and helpful with any enquiry we had. The food was absolutely beautiful and always something new on the menu each night, the views from the restaurant and our room were just beautiful. Unfortunately I twisted my ankle on our second day there and management plus their staff were more than helpful in offering medical help which made me feel comfortable knowing that they were there for me, as it turns out I've broken my ankle so it was more serious than first thought, but on the mend slowly. Would highly recommend The Marritz Alpine to everyone who needs accommodation at Perisher as the number one place to stay. We will definitely be going back there to stay. Well done to the wonderful Marritz Alpine Team.

I most recently completed a holiday at the Marritz Alpine at Perisher Vally, and I must say it was the best ski holiday we have ever had. I have been staying on the snow for the past 13 years in the same week, and never before have I experienced the quality of food service and staff attitude that I experienced in the week gone past. Nothing was too hard for the staff, the rooms were awesome and the staff were more than helpful with all our needs. I could not reccommend more strongly a holiday at the Marritz, it is a fresh change to get this qulaity of service and attitude. Keep it up guys we will be back for sure!

I have never been welcomed at a lodge or hotel - and I have travelled the world, and stayed in many luxury hotels - like we were was at The Marritz:) The standard of service is second to none. The food is outstanding, 3 course gourmet meals every night, hearty 2 course buffet breakfast - with free plunger coffee - every morning. My 6 year old ate every single "delicious" meal - unusual for a kids menu! The heated pool is just what you need after a day on the slopes. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. We didn't want to leave! I would not hesitate recomending The Marritz to anyone who wants an indulgent, comfortable and special stay right on the snow in Perisher:)

Stayed for six nights with a group of friends towards the start of the season. The staff were very efficient and friendly. I'd stay there just for the food and atmosphere, we ate there three meals a day and it was worth travelling for. The management team were very adept at managing our large group.
