Reviewed 10 February 2014

This is one of the best hotels we have stayed in. have been coming here for many years and it always excellent in all respects. The staff are friendly, professional and nothing is ever too much trouble. The staff seem to enjoy their work and go out of their way to make everyone feel comfortable. The location is perfect and I could not recommend this hotel highly enough. While it is on the expensive side it provides everything and more for a winter and summer holidays for families and couples.

Fab hotel with a perfect location in every sense of the word, south facing, on the piste, by the gondola to town and the chair lift to upper slopes, adjacent to ski school meeting point ..... It doesnt get any better, believe me we've tried. The evening 5 course meals are exceptional and not once will you feel out of place if you're traveling with young kids .... in fact prepare to be told off for telling them off. If you're thinking about staying here, stop thinking and book now! Oh, there's also the natural toboggan run down to Lech just outside the hotel.

...which is why we return here year after year.

The Burg Hotel can do luxury, comfort and great food. Once in Oberlech, the amazing underground tunnel system that links the cable car and hotels, means ladies forget those ugly moonboots, high heels are de rigeur.

The tunnel system means all deliveries are made underground, so you'll never be awoken by lorries replenishing supplies.

The half board deal includes an amazing buffet breakfast with numerous hot a la carte options and an evening meal where you have the choice of at least six delicious courses...yes six. Weight gain seems compulsory even after plenty of skiing and use of the spa facilities.

This is the great thing about this hotel, there's plenty to do if you don't ski, can't ski or like us, find eight hours on the slopes a thing of a (more youthful) past.

Oh and did I mention the staff, professional, courteous, warm and charming. They are a true credit to the hotel.

You will love it, that's if there are any rooms available. 80% of their custom is repeat business and when rebooking for the next year you advise the hotel management of possible dates for next year and then in the summer they write to you, letting you know when you can come!

Room Tip: A south facing balcony room to take advantage of the sun.

Is is hard to imagine a better Ski Hotel. Oberlech offers almost ski to the room, with the main lifts outside the front door.

The hotel itself is one of a few ****+ hotels in a small cluster .. they even have their own underground system for your luggage from the cablecar that is the only way in to the resort..

We have just stayed for a week over half term . our 'Standard Room' was large and of a very high quality with iPhone speaker system, flat screen TV, a new 'sleep system' (very comfy bed!), luxury bath room with robes and views out on to the snow. Higher grades of room offer balcony, a child sleep area and more expansive views from the higher floors (as per my wife's parents room) ..

The half board was excellent, and apart from one upset in the fondue restaurant, the quality of the food was excellent, our waiter for the week could not have been more helpful.

The size of the lobby is bigger than the other hotels with a great bar this proved to be a great chill out zone, the gym was small but with high quality kit, the pool was good (outside of childrens time .. this was half term !) and the Saunas & Steam area was large and luxurious.

On piste hotels, in Austria at a high altitude resort, are never going to be inexpensive, yet for a luxury experience, with outstanding levels of comfort and service .. this hotel is going to hard to beat anywhere in the alps.

Room Tip: Not sure how many of the room have been upgraded with the new bed & iPhone dock.

Thank you very much for your review. We are very glad you enjoyed the stay at our BURG Hotel in Oberlech and hope to see you here again next year.
Concerning your question "how many of the rooms have been upgraded with the new bed & iPhone dock" we can proudly tell you that there are currently 50 rooms upgraded already and until autumn 2013 all rooms will be upgraded with the new equipment.

We are visiting this hotel for years now. The location is the best by far. Its right on the slopes. The gondola brings you to the hotel and your car stays right in the valley in a lot. From that point on, you don't have to worry about anything. The rooms are nice and spacious. The restaurant is fantastic. The breakfast buffet is one of the best I've ever had. And the dinner every night is just fab. They have a kids programm and they always help you organize your passes, trips, etc. They have an extra restaurant which is specialized in Fondue, but you need a reservation. If you are bored, the spa is beautiful and airy. Or you take the gondola down to the valley.
Only the service in the restaurant (where you get breakfast and dinner) is sometimes a bit uncoordinated, but that doesn't bother me, since everything else is great. We love this place.

This review applies only to the a la carte restaurant (we didn't stay at the hotel).

We (family of 4) ventured up to Oberlech for a meal. My meal was outstanding (trout, leberknödelsoup, cheese). The Wienerschnitzel ordered by my wife and children was disappointing. (Rote Wand is much better). I was irritated when I received the bill : I was nickel-and-dimed for things that were never on the menu (extra charge for bread, extra charge for vanilla sauce, tea cost EUR 6 because it's considered 2 portions) In a nutshell, I could have been in Switzerland.

Shame really, because the location is great.
