The lady property manager was pretty rude. For a 1st time traveler to Buller, she didn’t make it a nice one. Message the hotel for an early check-in request but no reply. A firm no when we arrived 2 hours earlier ahead of check-in time at 4pm. Upon check-out, left our bags at the storage. Came back from lunch to claim our bags but the reception was closed. No signage or anything. Rang bell and called and took nearly 30 minutes for someone to come to our rescue.

Meh, it's OK but over-priced for what it is.
Mt Buller is obviously an expensive resort so you will not find a bargain anywhere here. That said, for the high cost of this hotel you would expect a better breakfast - more than just toast and cereal. The bed was comfy enough but only one slim pillow each isn't enough so I didn't sleep particularly well. Overall the hotel is fine, OK, average, "meh" and I wouldn't complain if it was cheap but it's not.

Clean hotel with comfortable bedding, convenient to access, a bus ride from piste. Room decor looks like South East Asia in the 1990s. Unfortunately a little cold at night with room temperature limited to 22 degrees.

Peaceful location. Good size room. Onsite rental equipment was good. Disappointing breakfast ( no hot food ). Would have expected that for the five star price. No free hotel shuttle for baggage. Overall staff were friendly and helpful. But the hotel is too expensive for what is provided. Peacefulness comes at a cost of a fairly long walk with baggage to terminal and ski area.
