Rooms are small though clean. Our room had a view of a snow packed verandah so you felt like you were in a shoebox. Breakfast was terrible.

Very poor service and a ‘drying cupboard’!

When paying $3000 for 1 room over 2 nights; one expects a modicum if service. Unfortunately, the majority of the breathtaker staff couldn’t facilitate this and made it clear that actually performing customer service is an inconvenience to their modus operandi. When we offered to wait until the final sitting at the restaurant was completed to dine (and pre-order if necessary so as not to prevent the chefs from finishing on time), we were simply told they couldn’t ‘fit us in’ and that we should ‘try our luck’ next door or in down. A charming result when paying so much for a hotel experience. It would have been very easy to fit is in for dinner (not to mention the substantial missed revenue for the restaurant). I would never stay or recommend breathtaker again.

Lovely apartment close to tracks

We were looking for a nicer & roomier experience this trip - rather than a lodge for Bike Buller festival. The Breathtaker was one of few available. We were not disappointed. The 2 br apartment was well appointed, although the living area was on the smaller side for 3+ people. this was well overshadowed by the pool facilities, restaurant with complimentary breakfast (on the large balcony - note it is summer), and amazing customer service, with hands on management. Plenty of areas outside of the room to take time out. Bikes able to be stored in ground level storage areas. From the moment we arrived, until departure, we were welcomed and nothing was too much of a problem for staff. Great to allow U18’s in adult pool area from 4-6pm. Would highly recommend.

Fabulous Boutique Hotel in the heart of Mt Buller.

We stayed in a large group at The Breathtaker to enjoy the off-season scenery and to experience the Mountain Bike racing across the Labour Day Weekend. We had quite the adventure. Amazing views. Perfect weather. Excellent service. Couldn't be happier.

Great Location, Fabulous Staff, Room and Food

Pros: Hard to fault anything. Friendly staff, comfortable and well maintained rooms, great facilities for both kids and adults and an excellent location.
Cons: Less stairs, more escalators. After a day on the slopes, a walk up to the 5th floor was a little hard on the legs.
Location: Great location adjacent to Bourke Street. perfect for those skiing. Village shuttle outside hotel takes you straight to the toboggan park and village.
What a fantastic stay. From the second we arrived (3 adults, 2 kids under 6) we immediately felt welcome at this wonderful hotel. After unloading our luggage for us, the staff guided us to our room showing all of the hotel facilities on the way. Our room was immaculately presented and actually larger than it appeared in the website photos. The furnishings were comfortable and well maintained and the room setup was practical and well designed for our family (there were spiral staircases which had complimentary gates if required). We ate three meals at the hotel, all of which were exceptional, very large and moderately priced considering the standard. The dining rooms were very family friendly as was the rest of the hotel. Ample sized ski lockers were provided on the bottom floor, large enough for two snowboards, boots and helmets, two pairs of skis, boots and helmets and two toboggans. The hotel location was fantastic being only about 100 metres from the slopes. There was also a village shuttle stop right next to it.
