This was a good find in the busy and hugely expensive half term week in a rather expensive resort!!
The hotel is slightly off the Main Street ( Lech is a small place!) but it really only a 5 minute stroll to the bustling centre.
The hotel offers half board and it is WELL WORTH going for that as it is really good value. The chef is Italian ( I think -but it certainly shows in the quality of the food ). The breakfast buffet - included- has something for everyone and is very generous. There is cake on offer on return from the slopes -delicious but for some reason, despite quoting cake and tea they seem to charge for the tea?!
Dinner was great every night. There is always a choice and several courses. I would say fairly meat heavy but well executed!! ( always a veggie option too) Always soup and salads as well as 3 courses and cheese. Good , but relatively expensive wine list. We felt they could have had a lot more reasonably priced bottles on offer. The service in the restaurant was always good and friendly. We made a faux-pas the first morning by not sitting at "our" table ! But once informed we knew the drill! Sometimes it felt nice to have our own regular table.
The rooms were great. Very clean and well maintained. I must say though that the rooms were always over hot... I think it must be a ski hotel trait...
Cleaned daily ( apart from once curiously) and lovely staff. The reception staff were always very helpful and polite, even though they sometimes had to double as bar staff when dinner had commenced and there was no-one to be seen at the bar. They tried to help whenever they could and they also have handy ski-pass printing facility there. Saves a lot of time!!! Good facilities for ski storage on the ground floor.
The hotel is very convenient for the t- bar up to slopes- about 50 metres away!! where it's a short ski down to the main lift or gondola.
There is nice wellness centre in the hotel with steam, sauna, massage facilities and relaxation room. Euro dress code in the steam and sauna... Ie none generally ( for any shrinking violets- although we wore swimsuits!!!) we didn't have massages but they were allegedly very good.
There is also a table tennis and table football downstairs for kids and also a room with access to computers and internet. Also the free hotel WIFI worked very well.
The clientele and general feel of the hotel was really nice. Interesting mix of nationalities and we met some really nice people.
Would definitely come back again.
