We went to this hotel on 7th January using crystal ski. They don't refer to Schruns but just call the resort 'Montafon'.
The hotel is lovely in a warm wooden building. Meals are excellent 5 courses and served at the table except for the salad bar which is help yourself. The staff all wear traditional Austrian clothes and are very friendly and helpful. There is a wide choice at breakfast with champagne on Sunday morning and most days eggs are cooked to order to your liking and are served with bacon or sausage. Plenty of fresh fruit, yoghurts, muesli, chesses, cooked meats etc. The only slight niggle was arriving late after a very long journey (snow storms caused problems the day we arrived) to a cold platter of meats and cheese instead of dinner, but I think that this is usual for the area on arriving late. The 'snack' buffet was open every day from 12:30 until 5pm and usually had some lovely soup and nice cakes as well as a salad bar. This was completely free and you could help yourself to hot chocolate, tea and coffee too. (I think I would have preferred this snack on our first day's late arrival)
There is a cosy bar area with a large wood fire and we were invited for a drink on the house on one evening.
The rooms were the largest we've ever stayed in - absolutely huge. They were of a very high standard, nice and warm with comfortable beds (austrian twin). The hotel were very helpful and seperated our children's (young adults) beds so that they were proper twin beds. There was absolute peace and quiet - no noise from anywhere.
Skiing here is very good and convenient. The hotel have a minibus and take you to the lift and collect you when you are ready to come back. We hired our skis/boots using crystal vouchers and collected them at the intersport shop up the Hochjoch lift. They had never heard of Crystal but worked out that it was part of the TUI group. We hired lockers in the shop which was also very convenient but unfortunately had a set of skis stolen from outside the shop - so be careful there. Runs were fine for us - mainly blue and red.
The hotel also has a very good wellness area. It's rather hidden away in the basement behind a very ordinary looking door, but when you go through it's like a whole new world! There are saunas, steam rooms and relaxation rooms, wellness showers a massage/beauty/wellness area and a huge swimming pool.
We had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel. We went in a very quiet week so there weren't many people in the hotel.
