This is the 4th time I have stayed at this hotel & it never disappoints. The rooms are clean & comfortable, the food is excellent & plentiful, the location is ideal (5 minute walk to gondola), the bar & lounge are warm & inviting, and the staff are the most wonderful, friendly bunch I have ever encountered.
I and a group of friends travelled with Inghams. Because of the late flight times, we didn't arrive until 8.30pm which is well after the restaurant normally stops serving food. Now, obviously the hotel is used to this each week, but they still served us a wonderful 3 course dinner (4 if you count the salad bar), and we were not hurried.
I must mention 2 wonderful things that happened on this 1st evening:
Another friend was travelling independently, and somehow managed to book in to a hotel with the same name in Kaprun, which was only discovered when we phoned him to see where he was, as he was due to arrive before us. Anyway, we spoke to the staff & they quickly prepared a room for him, He checked out of the other hotel, jumped in a taxi. and was with us a little over half an hour later. The staff even plated up some food for him to have when he got there.
Secondly, it happened to be my 60th birthday on the day we arrived, and Jalena (who seemed to be the one in charge) made a great fuss of me, and escorted me arm-in-arm to the dinner table. After we had finished eating, the lights went down which was what I thought was a hint to leave, but no - in walked Jalena with a huge birthday cake with a firework on top. Brilliant & such wonderful service.
All the staff were lovely the whole week we there. If it wasn't for the fact that we try to ski different resorts each year, we would go back every time. I'm sure though, that we will be back before too long, as we love the skiing in this resort/
