“Just The Best!”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

This was our 14th visit and it is still ranked in my book as the best hotel ever visited , owned
by a fantastic family who are passonate about their guests and their building and staff .
This Febuary was no exception, excellent welcome food as always the best and a nice pint of
local forst beer it does not get better!.
My only worry is too many people find out about this they may not have room for us in Febuary
2014.......that would be caterstrophic the family would not get over it.
Well done to pfosl and the team you need a big pat on your back we just love it .
Thank You
Beth Shropshire and Family

I am headed tomorrow to Pfösl for a week for the third time in as many years, and this is a first for me in 25 years of frequent travel. There are a handful of other hotels and places of which I am extremely fond and to which I vow to return, but Pfösl is the only one for which I cannot resist the urge. The owners and staff are warm and generous; the rooms are lovely and stylish without being too fashionable for comfort; the food and wines are excellent and the dinner menues varied; the spa is a haven; the hotel location and views are magnificent; and the included guided hikes a daily pleasure. I never feel as rested and restored, physically and mentally, as I do after a week at Pfösl. If a stay there cost twice as much as it does, I still would feel that I had not overpaid.

The evaluation of vanderluyden can only be a misunderstanding. I previously spent four times in this beautiful hotel. The last time from the 19th till the 22nd of July 2012. At that occasion my boyfriend and me slept in one of the suites. We were not disappointed at all. From my point of view the suites are very comfortable appointed, clean and modern with a beautiful view over the Rosengarten and Latemar. The food was excellent. There was freshly baked bread from a stone oven, not to mention that the buffet was freshly refilled at all times.

In my opinion the wellness hotel deserves four stars. I can recommend it to 100 percent!!!

One of the best hotels we visited so far. The hotel is located in a picturesque landsacape and offers all you need for a perfect hiking and wellness holiday. The cuisine is outstanding and the service excellent. Wonderful designed room and spacious beauty-wellness area. Definitely not the last time we visited this wonderful place. I can only recommend it!!!

If a 4 stars Hotel ranking existed like in soccer championship, this one would stand around the middle of it. With no any danger of downgrading and either any chance of scoring along the first positions. The location is wonderful, at the top of a sunny hill not far from the center of the village; the SPA/Wellness is up to task generally; the cuisine is rooted in a very good school, although its marked creativeness forbids to it being fully tuned to the territory like many times stated in the menu; owners and personnel are willing in making comfortable the staying, even through a flexible approach when necessary; to appreciate the ¾ pension formula quite well executed here.
On the other hand the rooms are impersonal, or “minimalistic” just to use this term, with essential furniture and no elegance at all (this is the most important weak point); common parts the same; modern the bathrooms but ad hoc kits almost non existent; service in the room doesn’t forecast any evening tidy up like in other hotels do; waiting time in the restaurant is sometime excessive (no maitre is there); swimming pool is old,small and sleazy; a bit better gym.
Just a last advice: pay attention about dealt credit cards. Not all are managed.

Stayed one night on our way to Austria. We booked a suite but the room had sloping ceiling and it was hard even to have a shower. An overall scruffy and torn feeling, dating back to the eighties, from the elevator to the carpeting and the small bathrooms. Beautiful view from the window but that's it. Dinner was an unpleasant surprise: the salad buffet was not replenished and it was poor in presentation and content.

The raving reviews about excellence were probably about another hotel or another management or a parallel world.

Bread was stale, cheese covered in flies (which are everywhere ) and the caneloni and involtini pre cooked and heated making them lack both in texture and flavor. I ended up eating only dessert which was just edible.

We weren't given any tour of the hotel (which other guests were offered) neither were we shown to our room upon arrival. We couldn't wait to leave this place. Again area nice, close to a tiny village.

Price too steep for lousy decor, poor food and average service. With the same price you can get FAR better experience almost anywhere. We are still wondering why the four stars. Maybe twenty-five years ago, now we feel it is overrated and overpriced a two star and a half at best for everything.

One last piece if advice, go only if you love dogs:they take big and small so there were many wandering around.

The Pfösl strives for perfection.
The modern design of the interior, the ever-pleasant and efficient service by all staff, the variety in the menus, the general atmosphere of helpfulness, the big and airy rooms.
The hotel is within 15 minutes by car or skibus from the Latemar ski-area. The village of Deutschnofen just down the road is pleasant.
The area as such is ideal for making long walks. The hotel gives you all the advice necessary and all equipment (maps, rucksacks, walking sticks). The area is high up but wide and gives wonderful views. One doesn't feel hemmed in by steep slopes.
The nearby road produces some, and incidental, traffic noise, but the more quiet rooms on the south/southwest side are very pleasant. The location of the hotel, and the views from it, make up for this really minor drawback.
The food is excellent. Prices are steep, but you get value for it. Modern elegance, high cuisine, great hospitality, peace and quiet, great nature and sports possibilities.
