Reviews

Best snow trip yet!

"A big thanks to Richelle and the entire team at Elk at Falls for a great stay! With a completely ski in ski out location and fantastic restaurant, Elk really is the best stay on the mountain. The rooms are brand new and have stunning views. The hotel has drying and storage rooms right inside the door so you never have to lug your heavy skis and board too far! By far the most comfortable trip to the snow we’ve ever had. Richelle is so accommodating and we absolutely couldn’t fault her hospitality. Can’t wait to see you all next year!!"

A’ Grade

"Elk is clearly one of the best lodges at Falls. Ski in and out, great restaurant and the facilities and rooms are A grade. Checking in/out is easy and the pick is up service from the car park is gold."

Best ski trip ever.

"Fantastic location with friendly attentive staff. Ski in ski out with fantastic restaurant. It’s within walking / skiing distance to the main chairlift and the many other restaurants and bars at Falls Creek. Great weekend with mates and will return next year!"

Highly recommend

"I had a fantastic time at Elk. Elk is perfectly positioned, being a short ski down to the main lifts. I stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment. It had a fantastic kitchen, dining and living space. The bedrooms had king size beds and plenty of storage. It was great being able to walk downstairs to the restaurant for a meal or drink. The staff went above and beyond, assisting me to get into the apartment (when I had forgotten the keys!). Overall, completely exceeded my expectations and could not recommend more highly."
