Spent a night at Mount Buller and opted to stay in this hotel, and it turned out better than I thought. It was an old-styled hotel and provided a very cosy feel to the stay. The staffs there were also very friendly and helpful.

Great to chat with the friendly staff about all the history; to read the books and even glance at the vista. Always a warm welcome: wish we didn't have to leave... the wines was so tasty: next time we will be able to take the kids for dinner (the table cloths are not so conducive to our young children...

We were well looked after.probably only downside was the cost of meals there, but that's the... More

We have been up to Buller for quite a few weekends this season and always booked Kaptan's restaurant in Grimus because it really is the best restaurant on the mountain. Last weekend we actually managed to get a room in the hotel as well and so stayed at Grimus for the first time. Having stayed in other places, we were... More

Hotel Pension Grimus epitomises European charm. The moment of entering the hotel, it felt like we are in Swiss alps. The hotel is charming, warm and homey. The staff were very welcoming and took the time to answer our questions and show us around. We hired all of ski equipment from the hotel ski centre (booked and paid online), the... More

Stayed here opening weekend for the snow season 2016. I'm going to keep this brief as the hotel wasn't fully functional when we arrived. They close for the summer and were 80% empty. Rooms were clean, neat and tidy, however our roof leaked into 1 suitcase which is just bad luck, staff moved us immediately to an adjacent room. Bathroom... More

We hired all our ski gear through Grimus and the service & professionalism was outstanding. I ended up with shin bruises from not walking correctly. Grimus put on gel pads for me free of charge. I highly recommend all your ski hire through them. They are located a short distance from the ski school.
