“A dissenting voice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

Perhaps we were spoiled by our wonderful January 2012 stay in Zermatt at the similarly priced, 4* Hotel Europe (reviewed elsewhere on tripadvisor), but the Haldenhof in Lech didn't seem to us to merit the lavish accolades bestowed to it here. Certainly the staff is very friendly, but our family suite (the second largest they offer) felt a little poky and in need of an interior redesign; the bedroom was very dark unless we opened the shades to view fifteen feet away the windows of another hotel. The sheets felt a bit rough, and the room was overheated. The new spa is nicely done, but quite small; try sharing the steam room with someone you don't know...The food was fine, but nothing more: the breakfast buffet felt cramped, and did not have the wonderful feeling of largesse we loved in Zermatt; we much preferred our fondue au chinois to our first dinner, which was heavy and lacked imagination. Yes, Lech is very expensive (and very beautiful), but I think better value than the Haldenhof can be found there.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view or risk feeling like you're in a fishbowl...

Hello!
Thank you very much for your comment and your advices.

We are sorry, that you have not been so happy staying with us. Knowing your problems while you have been staying with us would have been helpful and would have given us a chance to find solutions for you.

Sizes of rooms, spa, etc.are published on our website, but I know we can not compete with "US-Sizes". We just can stay and offer within our posibilities.

It is difficult to find everybodys taste regarding interior and design - Haldenhof has a history and we took over the hotel from our parents and we try to lead the hotel in the future and to improve year by year, but careful without loosing our heart and the ambience many of our visitors like and therefore visit year by year.

We hope that we may host you again in Lech and will do our best to make your next stay enjoyable and happy since we care about our guests holiday!

Michael Schwärzler & Family

This was the second visit by my wife and myself in 15 months.
Pretty much everything is excellent. The suite we reserved was large, comfortable and exceptionally clean. A major difference from alpine accommodation in France, is that in Austria the rooms have a lot of light.
We had no external noise-that being said, Lech doesn't have a vibrant nightlife.
The spa facility is brilliant.
The hotel has a new chef and the the standard of the food remains very high. There was one night when the menu was incongruous. The second course was an excellent Thai chicken curry with a main course of beef bourgignon. we would have been happy with a large portion of curry and no beef.
As with most alpine hotels there is one night when the dinner is fondue. This is something I could do without and when I next visit I'll use the fondue night to eat out.
The staff are very friendly and attentive. I booked online and had the hotel make my transfer arrangements which all went smoothly.
Some may find the hotel expensive but I think there is great value for money.
All the other guests were polite and friendly. I think this is in large part due to the staff putting guests at their ease.
I would agree that this is not a hotel for those looking for a party atmosphere, but that applies to Lech generally as it has more relaxed ambience than St Anton.
There were families at the hotel, but I don't think it's the right place for teenagers.

I can only agree to all the reviews I read on the Haldenhof, which is why we chose it!

Excellent is the one word to describe the hotel.

We had a junior suite which was perfect when traveling with a child, as the child has his own room but is still close enough to the parents. The rooms are nicely furnished, the breakfast buffet is tasty and with a great selection of just everything, to be surpassed only by the 5 course dinner! No problem with the kids, as the whole staff is trying to please them with any wish or need you might have - even ice-cream that is not planned for the dinner :) There is also a kids play room nicely staffed with toys and anything they might need. The spa is very nicely designed, and a bliss after skiing. The slopes are very close by, easily doable with a toddler, so is the ski school. And the rooms are very quiet!!!

So what can I say more than praise the Haldenhof, the friendly, cordial Family and the staff?? except of course that we will be back next year (like most of the other guest who are regulars!!)

One thing though that I would like to add to a review: if you are young singles/couples under thirty and you are really looking for a "fun" place with a great bar this is not the right place. This is an elegant yet comfortable family run hotel, and you would not have the hip atmosphere if that is what you are looking for.

We (Dutch family, 2 children) stayed first week of March '12 for 1 week in Haldenhof, our first time in this hotel. We booked a family room on the 3 floor. This room offers a separate room for the children. Good beds, the room is big enough, very good cleaning the whole week, 2 TV's (1 with dvd player!). The rooms are quiet; next to us were also 2 children but we haven't heared them at all. The bathroom was also ok.
We booked halfboard and the menu was every day more then good. The breakfast is also simply perfect. All the members of the staff are very friendly and the offered service level really is 5*. The bar/lounge is cosy and the hotel is absolute child friendly but it isn't a trully familyhotel so not to many children. For example; all the children can eat at 18:00hr so no little children during the dinner. This hotel is well managed by the 2 owners who are there all the time. Thelocation is just perfect; about 100mtr from the centre, 1 minute walking. Probably one of the best hotels in Lech..?! We will come again!!

Each March for the last 35 years, a group of us get together for a week of skiing skiing in many of Europe's premiere resorts. The attention, service and good humour of the
staff/ management of the Haldenhof made this one of our finest week's. if you have a food allergy, they make sure you are attended to.
