From the moment we arrived the staff were extremely accommodating, we had a later arrival and an evening meal was available for us upon check in. The room was great, we had a family room for the three...

One of the best hotels in the village with lovely facilities. Beautiful rooms which are spacious, comfortable and clean. Family run. Short walk to ski lift but we usually rent ski rack close to lift. Buffet style breakfast and dinner which is well organised.

Comfortable , always warm rooms , friendly staff, excellent facilities and just a stones throw from the main ski gondolas . Only criticism I have is the choice of food for kids.

The hotel boasts 4 star but we have had a most unsatisfactory week here. The food is well below what one would expect . Breakfast is exactly the same every day. It is available from 8 till 10, but if items run out after 9 o'clock, they are not replenished. Dinner is also repetitive: soup and salad ( again identical...

Our review is balanced between previous reviews of terrible and superb. On plus side the rooms, pools and fabric of the building are good. The room is spacious but note the duvets and pillows are thin. On the negative side the absence of reliable internet throughout hotel is baffling in this century. It is not available in the rooms and...

I go skiing on a annual basis and I have stayed at many lodges and hotels in Austria. This may seem like a biased review but I am just saying my personal experience, there were several things wrong with the hotel, 1. Impolite customer front desk 2. Zero wifi in rooms and next to none in bar area, the wifi...
