“well located pad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2012

A frend and I stayed here in mid Jan 2012. It is conveniently located near the cross roads in Hinterglemm and a very short walk to one of the main lift stations. Handy for apres ski, as the infamous Goastall is a mere 5 min slip slide up the piste (it's a must).

I have stayed in about 4 different hotels in Hinterglemm over the last 10 years, and on comparison this has been about average. A warm friendly welcome awaits and the hotel is very clean. Our room was small and bijou with a pretty good view of the hot tub of the Alpine Palace (one can dream). The food however was a little hit and miss at times, but the fish dishes I can highly recommend. You have to share your dinner table with other couples, didnt bother us but if you want to be alone, may be a problem for some. The staff were friendly and attentive. All in all a pretty good hotel which we hope to re book for next year.

We stayed here over Christmas (booked through Inghams) and overall we were very pleased with the hotel. The hotel itself has a lovely cosy bar and lounge area on the ground floor with the restaurant on the first floor - we have to say that the evening dinners were absolutely fantastic - we couldn't fault the food at all. Breakfast was also very good with ample choice - buffet style. If the hotel is full you will share a table for breakfast and dinner - we were very lucky and had another English couple who were fantastic company (so if you are reading this review - thanks again!) My only slight criticism is the timings for the restaurant: Breakfast is from 8am to 10am, but the lifts open at 8.30am so I would have preferred a slightly earlier breakfast, say from 7.30am. Also for dinner it is between 7pm and 7.30pm, again I would prefer a slightly later seating time - a very minor thing though! We were on the 3rd floor (top) and the room was rather small and in need of a refurbishment - it was not like any of the photos on the hotel's own website - I wonder if the top floor rooms are the package holiday makers? Having said that the room was clean and servicable / adequate as you are not in the room for too long. The hotel also has a ski / boot room on the ground floor which is easily accessed via the hotel and the boot rack is heated which is a nice touch! The staff are also very friendly. The hotel is in an excellent location - only 3 mins walk to the Reiterkogelbahn gondola from which you can ski the whole area (if anyone wants any further information on the skiing please contact me). Bars and restaurants in the town are also only 3 mins walk so very convenient. We did choose this hotel as it's fairly small and quiet but unfortunately there was a large group who were rather loud and noisy and a few times kept us awake through the night as they seemed to continue their party in their rooms and in the hallway - this was also slightly annoying, but we tried not to let it affect our overall review of the hotel.

We stayed here for the last week in August, the owner and staff were extremely friendly and polite.
We booked late so had a smallish room and no balcony, but we understood this when booking the holiday, the room was fine, spotlessly clean and well serviced during our stay.

The meals were excellent. Breakfast included muesli, fruits, eggs and bacon and a wide range of cold ham and cheeses (naturally) with a variety of breads. You made your own pack lunch and placed it in a pre-prepared bag containing fruit juice and biscuits.
Evening meal was a selection of 3 items including a vegetarian option. The specialised evening meals were enjoyable. We give hearty congratulations to the chef.

The hotel has a central location, 3 minutes walk to a gondola. The joker card giving free access to 4 lifts in the valley, together with free use of the half hourly public buses make Saalbach/Hinterglemm a very attractive proposition.
The large network of footpaths means that we will have to return and the Sonnblick is the place we will stay.

Room Tip: If you want a balcony, book early.

We have spent 11 days at the Hotel sonnblick. It was fantastic. We didn't want to leave. The food was Excellent, the staff were really friendly, the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The Garden is lovely sit out in on a sunny day. The bar is a great area to relax in at night. The area is beautiful. There are lots of cable cars to going up in and plenty of walks to do. There is a brilliant crazy golf course in Hinterglemm and a fantastic swimming pool in Saalbach. We got the Joker Cards which were brilliant. We got free access to many things such as the cable cars, the swimming pool, crazy golf and the buses. The only thing that let us down was the weather. If we were to come back to Hinterglemm again, which i hope we will, we wouldn't hesitate to stay at the hotel sonnblick!

We have just spent 2 weeks in Hinterglemm at the Hotel Sonnblick booked via Inghams. The hotel is quiet, in a quiet location and is very clean. The staff and owners were extremely helpful and friendly. Our room (not massive but big enough) had a balcony and a lovely view. The food was excellent. Hot and cold buffet breakfast, lots of choice, plenty to eat. We had a packed lunch - wafer biscuits and drinks placed on breakfast table and you can make up your own rolls from the breakfast buffet. As seems usual in Austria we chose our dinner main course at breakfast, unless it was a main course buffet. Dinner was excellent. Salad buffet, starter - sometimes soup - and main course and dessert. Each week there was a starter buffet one day, dessert buffet another and an Italian buffet, welcome buffet on the Saturday plus a Grill buffet another day. Masses of food, plenty of choice, well presented and good quality. Compliments to the Chef. On the ground floor is a large lounge/bar area and on the 2nd floor at the back of the building a terrace and small garden. We had a good holiday, weather not wonderful but we didn't get wet. The Joker card is brilliant free travel on - 3 cable cars a 4th after 8th July, free bus through the valley, the little train at the end of the valley and discounts on other attractions. I have done separate report about Hinterglemm. Would definitely recomment this hotel.

Room Tip: 2nd or 3rd floor rooms probably give better views

We stayed at the sonnblick in march. There is nothing we can fault about this hotel. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were cleaned every day and fresh towels.
The hotel is very close to 1 of the gondolas and only a short walk to the other 2.
We were very unfortunate with the weather as they had not had a good snowfall since January. Although most of the slopes were open the conditions were not very good.

Stayed February 2011 with four friends for a skiing trip. I have to say the hotel and location were absolutely excellent. The hotel is a short walk to one of the main ski lifts - you can ski to within a very short distance of the hotel. The rooms were a little dated, but this is more than made up for with the fantastic personal service from the staff, the reasonable bar prices, the sauna and the food - the food is terrific, worthy of a four or five star hotel - the chef deserves some recognition as his efforts made our stay all the more special.
Myself and my friends felt so welcome in this hotel, almost part of the family - if you have booked a stay here you are in for a treat. We will be back 2012.
