We booked this hotel through Crystal Ski (a mistake as they're useless in every way) in January and had a great ski trip. We were in a room in a separate building from the main hotel, which was spacious and comfortable for the 3 of us, very warm and with a nice size balcony. The food is great and you get plenty (too much if we're honest). The wellness centre of the hotel is nice too and perfect after a hard day skiing.
We're told in the summer or when the lake is frozen over (warm weather had prevented this) then this part of Kitzbuhel is ideal. BUT the hotel was a *long* walk from the centre of town and buses are not regular enough, nor is it clear which bus you need to get unless you speak german. The hotel provides a free shuttle after breakfast and at about 4pm which is very kind of them. I would advise hiring a locker at the InterSport by the main cable car - I used this as my base so that I could walk to and from town in comfortable shoes. As for evenings, don't worry about missing out on the nightlife, there doesn't appear to be much of one in Kitzbuhel unless the Hahnenkamm races are on.
Aside from the location, prices in Kitzbuhel can be a bit excessive and the hotel isn't any exception. Beer was around €3.60 which wasn't too bad, but I remember my friend ordering himself two glasses of coca-cola that turned out to be €4.80 *each*. The only other negative aspect of this hotel was the strong smell of pipe smoke in the bar, which whilst there's something almost nostalgic about it for me, at times it could get a little too strong.
Overall we were happy with our stay and we would perhaps visit the Bruggerhof again, but certainly not with Crystal Ski.
