Blog Review

A stylish lodge located on a mountain in Australia’s Victorian Ski Alps, Astra Falls Creek offers the perfect escape for anyone wanting to cosy up while it’s cold outside with a great stack of books. Perfectly embodying rustic charm with ski chic, this alpine lodge has been beautifully styled with carefully chosen Australian furnishings, and boasts a well-stocked library overlooking the snow. What better place to curl up with a thick tome and a piping hot drink?

Astra Lodge is the perfect choice for those of you wanting a more upscale winter wonderland holiday. 

Throw in roasted marshmallows, games of Uno and a line of ready to throw snowballs and you have the added benefit of an Australian luxury ski chalet that welcomes and caters for those of us who travel with children.

A Perfect 10! Tom, Sally and their crew are simply incredible; so warm and welcoming. We felt like we were a part of this gorgeous family living the dream in the most awesome location in the world.

Astra itself is the epitome of casual luxury. Nothing is left to chance, and all is delivered with such effortless grace.

And the food… Wow… Courtesy of the brilliant young Head Chef, Janis. And the amazing selection of world class wines available… Just leave it to their Som, Louis, to choose; you won’t be disappointed.

We will be back, that is guaranteed.

We have been lucky enough to stay at a number of ski lodges in both Australia and the USA. The latest renovations at the Astra are world class!!!

The small but extremely well appointed studio suite was super, perfect for a few days away. The Lodge has all the facilities you would expect from a first class stay of this type. The in-house day spa was a superb addition! 

The service from General Manager Tom and his team was extremely personal and without fault!!! Well done. 

The Astra must be one of the best ski lodges now in Australia – love it! We will be back!

Astra, is a wonderful experience. We were there for only 5 nights but every moment was great. The team lead by Tom, had great communication and organised travel from airport with 2 child seats. Picked up in a very new oversaw vehicle to Astra.

Rooms are modern have everything possible. The ski locker room was the most modern fabulous, practical facility. The lounge and bar full of fun. The restaurant, devious and very satisfying and even provide marshmallows for the fire. 

A special room for kids, with video games, books and board games…great when weather has everyone inside. Love it.

“From the Silver fox (Bryan) your VIP transfer driver with entertaining tales that you NEED to ask him about, to Josh who picks you up after your days skiing when you’re too knackered to lift your ski boots off the ground, To Tom the GM who is the epitome of hospitality to the fabulous bar/kitchen crew that look after you so well, magically appearing with advice; those fabulous cocktails and selection of reds. Astra is more than just a place to stay.

Astra doesn’t just give you somewhere fabulous to lay your head after a big day on the slopes, it makes your alpine experience truly comforting and endurable thanks to the magnesium spa and pool, amazing food, extremely comfy beds & lovely, cheeky and entertaining staff. 

We LOVED every minute of our 5 day stay… thanks for the memories Astra; you have done the mountain proud. We will sing your praises till we get to return. Worth every one of the 5 stars – would give you 6 if possible!”

-ANDREW, Trip Advisor

What a fantastic 3 nights I had with my 2 children…teens! (aged 15 and 19). From the moment you are greeted at the door by Sally and shown through the lodge it is one amazing turn after another! 

Everything was fantastic! The room (Corner suite 305 accommodating 4 if required) was fantastic with the best view! Pool, sauna, steam room area was great. 

The Ski Boot/locker room was fantastic and so easy to access and leave you belongings stored. Breakfast amazing! 

The bar after 3pm was a highlight! I could easily have sat there all night! Great atmosphere with a mix of families and couples enjoying the big open fire and great wines and cocktails. 

To Tom, Sally and the team a BIG THANKYOU for an amazing three nights and we will be back ! Jill Ella & Mike

“As accommodation goes, this is one of the best at Falls. 

It all starts with the complimentary over-snow pickup, which can mean hours saved waiting for the mountain transfer. All so easy, just call and 10 minutes later the transfer is there. 

The rooms were very comfortable, from the bed, heated towel rails, lovely Triumph & Disaster amenities, T2 teabags, Nespresso pods & gloriously thick towels. We did find our room noisy, from the corridor, outside and through the closed interconnecting door. 

The breakfast spread is impressive, although the coffee was a little disappointing. The bar and dinner menu couldn’t be faulted however, and the lounge is just lovely to relax in after a good day’s skiing. 

There is a pool & spa & kids’ games room, which we didn’t use. The boot/gear is really well set out with lockers and heating. 

Thank you to Tom and his team, they worked tirelessly.”

“The Astra Lodge in Falls Creek provided the perfect long weekend escape and a chance for some spring skiing for me and my husband. On arrival – as it was late in the season, and the lodge was not full, we were told we had been upgraded to a suite – without even asking!! The room was gorgeous. Simple yet beautiful. 

The breakfasts were included and amazing. The restaurant and bar PERFECT for apres ski drinks and the food delicious. 

Tom, the lodge manager truely understands customer service and is incredibly helpful and accommodating- going above and beyond!! 

We will be back and will tell all our friends about our wonderful experience at Astra Lodge.”

“First time we have stayed on the snow fields, we were fortunate enough to experience it with Astra Lodge. We wanted to get the “wow” factor and can I just say we got the “wow” factor with Tom and his staff. It definitely is an experience you must do especially at Astra Lodge, they give 100% 5 star service. They go above and beyond for their guest.

“Astra Lodge are very family friendly and have accommodated for my 2 kids (5 year old and 20 month year old).

“The food is also amazing 10/10 to the chef.

“Thank you Tom, Erin, Brian and to all the amazing staff at Astra Lodge. You have made our first time experience on the snow one not to forget. We look forward to seeing you all next year.”

-Toni, Facebook

“Tom and the team could not have been ore hospitable, attending to our needs and requests. All the staff were so friendly, out lied up to the images and reviews prior to arrival. Made the skiing so good. 2 bedroom apartment was brilliant, and all facilities were excellent. Food and beverage and wine list was also brilliant, great chef and bar manager, but Tom is the star.”

-Wend, Trip Advisor

“Had a fantastic 2-night stay. Tom and his team took personalised service to the next level. Rooms, restaurant, spa, pool, sauna, ski room, and day spa all idyllic. The daily buffet breakfast has great variety, and fresh food. And did I mention the fabulous staff?”

-Kav, Trip Advisor

“Look no further than Astra Lodge for your stay up in Falls Creek!

“From our initial booking with Tom – he was knowledgeable, polite and prompt, to our arrival on the mountain where we were picked up from the Transfer Terminal. With our check in we were given a quick and informative tour of the Lodge – ski/boot room with locker, pool/ spa/ sauna, restaurant – all making our stay that much easier.

“The room was fantastic – comfy bed, clean, warm and great facilities.

“The restaurant was sensational, breakfast was delish and kept us going for the day, the cocktails, wine list from the cellar, Après menu and dinner menu – could not fault and even offered vegetarian options which is a win! The staff were fantastic too.

“Thank you to Tom and the Astra Team – we have had the best time & we will definitely be back!”
