Time Out Melbourne

Bunk down at these great Alpine hotels during ski season

QT Falls Creek

The former Quay West Resort and Spa Falls Creek was taken over by the hip QT brand last month. Expect a makeover of the ski-in, ski-out hotel, including the addition of a Bazaar restaurant and Stingray Lounge cocktail bar. Book a room with a hot tub on the balcony, the best value of which are the two-bedroom apartments. 17 Bogong High Plains Rd, Falls Creek.

Thredbo Alpine Hotel

Sure the old girl is in need of a makeover, but the Thredbo Alpine Hotel is still the place to stay in the popular alpine village. The rooms are a short walk to the Kosciusko Express chairlift, while cocktails after a day on the slopes hit the spot in the lobby lounge bar. This winter, also expect Swedish hot pool parties hosted by Rekorderlig Cider. Friday Dr, Thredbo.

Zirkys Apartments

Zirkys has been in our top five list for years thanks primarily to its location next to the Playground Double Chair. Service in the property’s restaurant and bar, a top spot for a post-powder glass or two, is hospitable. The bigger the apartment the better the deal, so grab a few mates and take a larger room. Great Alpine Rd, Mt Hotham.


If the cheap rates aren’t the winner (a steal from $98 a night) then you’ll find it hard to go past Silverski for the Asian-inspired food and booze on offer at Oishii-Go downstairs. Or rather the fact you don’t need to head home down icy paths after a few shochus. Book in quick because this lodge fills up quick in peak season. 1 Siltzmark St, Falls Creek.

The Denman

Part of the cool 8hotels Collection, the 36-room Denman hotel is all about decent digs, food and wine – the perfect mix for a weekend at the snow. Here, you’re a short walk from the heart of Thredbo Village. Be sure to try a few different schnapps at the hotel’s Apres Bar. 21 Diggings Tce, Thredbo.
