“Amazing venue and brilliant service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

Our stay at the Astra was a fantastic holiday experience and it was all that we hoped for and more. The quality of the venue was sensational and the amenities were of a very high standard. The hotel has an awesome restaurant, brilliant cocktail bar, wonderful lounge area with a warming open fire, excellent pool and spa and extremely comfortable rooms.

However, the point that really made our stay so memorable was the friendliness and professionalism of the staff .. so thanks heaps guys for an amazing time and we will definitely be coming back!

Some would say you are mad to do a ski trip with a 3 month old but with the help of Astra's staff and falls creek day care this was possible! We enjoyed some great, albeit last minute snow for a few days. I must admit there was some trepidation in bringing a potentially screaming infant into such a nice, quiet & relaxed lodge but the Astra staff made us feel very welcome and made a cot available for our room. Rooms were clean and larger than others I've experienced on the mountain and they don't seem to suffer from poor hot water pressure either, vital after a long day on the slopes! We ate at the restaurant on one of the nights, they have a limited but enticing menu, all of the dishes were tasty and well presented. Highly recommended, high-end lodgings in falls, we will be back.

The Astra Lodge has it all. A more up-market establishment with a nice feel and ambiance. The restaurant is excellent as is the service and wide variety of wines are available from varied regions both in Australia and also Spain, France, NZ. Probably my favourite times at the Astra are frequenting the Lounge Bar. Here you can sit with friends and try shots of vodka from all over the world. It's about $15 shot but the waiter brings out the selections one at a time and explains the origins of the vodka. There are so many to choose from that you're going have to try them all over more than a few nights or seasons. If a red is more your style then there are several offered by the glass. Picture windows, warm fires, good food, good wine, great company and excellent hospitality is the recipe of many a great night.

The Astra is a well appointed, slightly high-end lodge on Falls Creek Mountain. The staff there made all the difference as they were lovely, friendly and they care about the snow conditions! The double-bedroom was suited for my son (10) and myself, the drying room and room for skis was logically placed and certainly big enough for gear, the jacuzzi and sauna were lovely after a full day on the slopes (though they could stay open a bit later than 7P). The restaurant was definitely more upmarket, no kids menu, which was fine for 1 night, the rest of the time we ate at the Man Hotel which was more like a pub and better for my son. The breakfast was included in our package and was a good selection, though the brewed coffee was an extra charge which seems a bit much. All in I would recommend if you want to splurge a bit and the staff are great.

Room Tip: Lower floors means less walking up after a day on the slopes (no lift)

The service it's outstanding for Australian standards. Everyone were very professional, friendly and helpful. The drinks at the bar were great, the food was amazing. Hitting the hot spa after a day on the mountain was bliss, then chilling at the lounge by the fireplace ahhh. Love it!

Stayed at Astra with 5 other couples in early August. Had the Penthouse Deluxe which accommodated all of us more than comfortably, beautiful view, great self-contained kitchen and well-appointed rooms and ensuites. Pool and spa area well-maintained, really appreciated it after a hard day on the slopes! Grochowski family (owners) looked after us really well, including shouting us a round of vodkas during my birthday dinner in the Astra restaurant on the first night! Food was amazing, it was no problem for the Chef to create a complete gluten-free birthday meal for me, even though I only expected one or two dishes I could eat! - the food just kept coming. Breakfast staff weren't always so cheery, but maybe that's because it was early morning?? But otherwise we had no complaints, would stay at Astra again - felt like a home away from home. Thank you Wally!

Room Tip: Penthouse Deluxe a good choice for large group of friends. Great view and self-contained.

We spent there nights at the Astra during the ski season. It is very modern, has great facilities and the staff are very friendly. It is well situated in the village and you can ski in and ski out. We will stay there again!
