“Lovely oasis of tranquility and excellence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

Enjoyed a very lovely weekend there in summer 2014. A great experience from start to end; warmhearted reception; parking right next door (free), room ready, facilities and its locations explained briefly on the way to the room (just the way I like it rather than those 15 minute speeches some other hotels do instead of just letting you go up to your room in peace). Dinner: simply magnificent. Enjoyed the set menu. Exceeded both our expectations by far. Wine list: first class (and as always in Austria, at a decent price). Service: very personalized. Restaurant atmosphere: alpine style, very discreet. After dinner drink at the bar - again very lovely and good choice of spirits. Had a heavenly sleep afterwards. Took a swim in their infinity pool in the morning. What a lovely way to begin the day. Breakfast was ok (probably the only area where they could improve; selection a big poor for a 5 star). They had a BMW promotion whilst we were there. Driving M myself, that was very welcome since the weather was not too good for a hike. So we were given their 640 Gran Coupé for one day to explore the nearby hillroads - all for free. Paid only petty cash for the fuel. All in all a very great weekend. Relaxation guaranteed. One feels like having been on holiday, even if only stayed at the Gasthof Post for one weekend. Will go back in one month. Cannot wait.

Full of charm and good service. Really good all round and loved the stay in every way. Nice heated outdoor pool makes for a different sort of spa experience. Of course, this is one of the top hotels in one of Europe's top ski resorts.

Had a lovely half term ski break with my sixteen year old daughter stayed at the edelweiss in lech this year. On previous years we have stayed at the sandhoff, the krone, the shranz all leaving us with sweet Austrian memories. On a friend recommendation we went for afternoon tea to The Post. Wow what an unforgettable experience of the rude kind. The head waiter at the bar was arrogant, rude and gave us horrible condescending looks. He then stood in the corner with two other waiters staring at us and making offensive comments(I understand a bit of German). Very dissapointing as the hotel itself is quite beautiful and in a great location. Shame about the attitude of the staff

Hotel is furnished with antiques of great character, if you like modern minimalist don't stay here. Each bedroom is different, many with traditional fire ovens. The bathrooms have large bath tubs, separate showers and double basins. Bed linen is crisp and comfortable. The restaurant is exceptional quality but service can be slow at busy times. Breakfast is amazing with a wide variety of fruit, cereals, fresh baked breads,cold meats and cheeses. Guests can order any variety and number of eggs with whatever accompaniment they like such as bacon, smoked salmon etc. They will even do American style pancakes with maple syrup or eggs benedict.

We had a fantastic time in the afternoon sun at the Post Hotel and get back some strength after a nice hike in this fabulous Area. lech in Summer as well in Winter is always worth a visit. The fresh Air in the Mountain as well as the LECH water is amazing. But the best of the best for me is the Apfelstrudel - this was always my goal on the hike to get there ASAP...... The Staff is very attentive and kind!

This place has a lot of charm, starting from the dining room, through the hallways, all the way to the rooms. The room was stunning and decorated in medieval style. The hotel was very clean although don't expect anything too modern or extra. About the only complaint that we had is that the breakfast was a bit too continental for winter conditions with only a warm egg on offer. In the winter and in the ski season, one would expect a hot breakfast with a lot more variety, but this wasn't the case. Having said that, I would certainly recommend this hotel.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Post over Easter 2013. The hotel is like stepping into the real Austria , with all the comforts and luxuries that you would expect from a 5* hotel. All the staff are charming and nothing is too much to ask. Food is great- going for half board is a good idea as there are not many fantastic restaurants in lech for the evening. Breakfast in the room is a real must. The spa is fantastic, seems brand new- a massage with Christine is a must after a long day skiing- and the indoor- outdoor pool is fantastic. We stayed in the postmeister apartment with its own open fire and four poster bed- recommended for those who like traditional style- room 28. If you're more into the modern style then go for a room in the extended section of the hotel.
