“Super facilities”
Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

Great hotel in all aspects. Large clean rooms, super beds. Restaurant very nice, mind you it is Austrian cuisine not always very refined but fresh produce, large choice and well prepared. Service is super from all personnel. Welness and sports facilities are great, super indoor basketball field. Good hiking from the hotel.

Stayed July 2013, travelled with family

Overall Hotel Alpenhof scores 3 stars (Poached eggs) – see grading system below:

1 star = Pickled egg
2 stars = Scrambled eggs
3 stars = Poached eggs
4 stars = Scotch eggs
5 star = Eggs Benedict

In Favour of Hotel Alpenhof (the Magnificent 7)

1. Location. A cracking, commanding position at the head of the valley. For Alpine skiing it’s a short (free) 2 minute bus ride to Gondola 1. For X-Country/ Langlauf skiing it’s a (free) 2 minute bus ride down the valley to an excellent Langlauf Loipe/ touring track.

2. Design. Traditional Alpine style-building, very well thought out and arranged over 8 floors (4 above & 4 below main hotel entrance level). Well-equipped and kitted out with masses of carpentry skills on show. The best bit is the indoor basketball/ badminton/ sports hall. Full height, glass viewing area for spectators. Magnificent. Games room with pool table, table footy and PS3 (no FIFA though which forced us to try new games – perfect)

3. Facilities. Excellent & fairly comprehensive facilities. Good size pool with adjacent steam room for approximately 4 people, ready supply of snacks, refreshments & towels. More extensive adult only sauna & solarium facilities.

4. Rooms. Spacious, comfy, gleaming

5. Food. Ample, Austrian fayre generally excellent, often included ‘foam’, occasionally trying-too-hard, a little repetitive (*see also poached eggs below)

6. Personal Touches. Sweet personal touches included a night time sledging activity hosted by the charming Dengg brothers, bedside book(s) available for purchase (including the excellent book by Franz X.Buhler “Out of the head and into the heart”)

7. Innovation. Wow. Brilliant idea. A ‘family roll of honour’ board proudly showing the family names of loyal customers. To qualify it appears you and your family need to have stayed a minimum of 10 times. Then you qualify for a badge showing the number 10 with your family name – displayed along with other families on the family roll of honour. Lots of 10’s, plenty of 20’s – some pushing 100! Amazing loyalty. Rewarding loyalty in this way - super idea. Also we liked the ‘meet the team photo board’ showing the Hotel Alpenhof staff.

Against (the Dreadful Duo)

1. Service. Somewhat chequered.
- Reception service – tip top & as it should be.
- Restaurant service – a muddle. It was unclear who was looking after us. It felt like a cast of thousands with no single person taking care of you. Service was somewhat brusque, formal and rushed (perhaps because dinner is typically 5 courses +). Don’t expect restaurant staff to be chatty, personable and conversational.
- Room Service – adequate but lacking attention to detail & refinement. We had to request a child’s bathrobe on Day 5 of our holiday – in spite of providing ages at check in on Day 1. Laundry service had to be specifically requested via reception (this was unclear from the laundry instructions and baskets in the room)

2. Food. Be warned. If you like poached eggs for breakfast, proceed with caution. On Day 1 poached eggs were cooked & served perfectly with a sprig of fresh parsley crowning each egg – Bravo chef. On Day 2 it took 3 requests and approximately 45 minutes for the requested poached eggs to arrive. When they did arrive they were undercooked/ raw – and without the crown of the previous day. On Day 3, poached eggs arrived reeking and swimming in vinegar-water (egg white appeared grey/ white). Ditto Days 4 and 5. Then gave up. Awkward.

Everything, and I mean everything about the hotel was first rate. Excellent staff - friendly, attentive, courteous, and willing to share lots of info about the local area. The suite was spacious, stylish, clean, quiet, and comfortable. The breakfasts and dinners were superb, offering everything you can think of. The spa/sauna pure relaxation - has anything you need to relax your muscles after a skiing day! Fascinating atmosphere. Compliments to the chef!!!
We had everything to make our vacation just perfect!

Last summer we went for the first time to Hotel Alpenhof in Hintertux. It was a wonderful experience. The room, excuse me - the spacious suite - was very comfortable. We had a terrace on both sides of the suite with splendid view on the mountains.
Every day, you could easily make fantastic walks, starting directly at the hotel, each very different in nature, from easy to challenging.
Before your departure, there is a very extensive and energetic breakfast waiting for you. Also the Supper was particularly nice: light, varied, vegetarian option and above all: very high quality.
The staff was extremely helpful. For children, the surroundings are very fine: with a swimming pool and children's play rooms in the hotel, a small playground near the hotel and those beautiful mountains, holiday was great. In short, you want to enjoy a carefree holiday, in a beautiful setting with great food, then you know where you need to be. Not to mentione the wellnes with numerous possibilities ...

Room Tip: Our room, one of the more spacious suites, was wonderful. We had two bathrooms, two toilets - one s...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Alpenhof is the only Superior hotel in Hintertux and nestles in the dreamy mountain setting of Tuxertal - just 1 minute from the Hintertuxer Glacier. The cosy rooms and suites in fine Tyrolean style are fitted with tiled stoves, lovely bathrooms, most have a balcony and everything that your heart yearns for. With excellent cuisine, a selection of traditional, international and sophisticated delights, the Alpenhof has already stolen many a connoisseur's heart. In autumn 2014 the culinary range was awarded 1 'toque' by Gault Millau. To switch off and relax our 1600m ² relaxation realm, VITALIS SPA, has 6 different saunas, steam baths, quiet rooms and more. The indoor pool, at 128 m², is also suitable for performance-oriented swimmers. The 160 m² XXL gym is available for your own fitness programme. In summer we also offer a 1000 m² Alpine garden. Massages, beauty, bath packages and much more are available to book. Refreshments are available at the vitamin bar which offers fruit juices, a selection of tisanes and invigorating spring water. The fantastic location in the middle of the ski area, at the foot of the Hintertuxer Glacier, sets skier's hearts racing. Snow-assured from October through to May - there is powder snow here right into the spring and the glacier ski area is open year-round. In summer Tuxertal is a natural paradise which has a fantastic range of sports - 350 km hiking trails, 30 managed Alpine inns, 90 summit tours, 70 km mountain bike tours, parties and celebrations and numerous excursion destinations. And, with the maxim being 'More Service', it is a matter of course that the Alpenhof has ski guides in the winter and hiking and mountain guides in the summer who are 'ready to get out there'. ... more   less
