My wife and I have stayed in Obergurgl for 6 ski holidays and so decided to give Hochgurgl a try as we usually end up skiing there more than Obergurgl.
We found the hotel of very good quality, clean rooms, nice pool/spa and small fitness suite.
The restaurant was of a very good standard with a good varied venue.
Position wise the hotel is very convenient to the lift system and ski hire shop.
There are no shops or restaurants other than those servicing the hotels. If you are looking for wild night life neither of the 2 resorts is for you.
This area of Austria has a very good snow record with a good number of longer runs. Queues what queues?
I have just one negative comment: there is a live band of 2 using one of those sound machines designed to be at full bass and full volume when they performed ( I am being complimentary) it was very very loud. The venue was the Tonis Hutte attached to the hotel, we were on the third floor and the vibrations went through our bed and onto the fourth floor. It was 1am before we could even consider sleep!
The band do not play more than a couple of times a week in the hotel, but guess what, they do the rounds and appeared a couple of times at the Ideal which is about 150 metres away but almost as loud and same repetoir.
There was a time when I was able to tolerate and even enjoy live bands I now appreciate maintaining good hearing and a good night's sleep.
At the risk of appearing a grumpy old person I will leave it there, except to say that many fellow guests concurred at the breakfast table.
