We booked through Crystal for a weeks stay at the Petersbuhel in early March 2012. Having flown in on a early morning flight we arrived at 1 p.m. to be told our room was not ready, which having been up since 2 a.m. that morning was not what we wanted to hear! I guess we were just unlucky as the rooms for other guests checking in at the same time were ready for them. We were told to come back at 3 p.m. and not before. When we finally got our room it was a bit on the small side, old and tired and was in need of updating but on the plus side the bathroom was nice with fresh towels provided each day and we had great views over the facing ski slopes and a good sized balcony
We found the food to be of good quality. The weekly farmers buffet and desert buffet were excellent and the daily skiers snack (bread, various spreads and lovely cakes) was an added bonus and greatly enjoyed after a hard day of skiing.
The hotel has a large wellness area which my partner visited each evening, during our stay the naked rules did apply during our visit (so he tells me)
There is a large bar area next to the reception that has an open fire and flat screen tv showing mostly football, plenty of seating and a large range of wines and cocktails. You cannot add any drinks purchased in the bar to your room bill, but drinks ordered in the restaurant at dinner can be charged.
The hotel is not ski to door, but a very short walk down the road in each direction will take you to the nearest lift or on to directly on to a piste giving access to the lifts on the opposite side of the valley.
Overall we did enjoy our stay and would probably return, but would hope to be allocated a better room if we did.
