After travelling 15 hours from the US to a new destination and to be personally welcomed by the owner and other members of the Berghoff staff upon arrival was just the best greeting I've had at any hotel anywhere. The jr. suite was roomy, comfortable and well appointed. The rooms are exceptionally quiet with plenty of hot water for showering.
The dining experience was wonderful. Buffet breakfast and lunch was perfect for me (I was there to snowboard and just needed quick fortifying meals to get out the door) followed in the evening by relaxing formal dinners with a different menu or theme each evening. With the exception of drinks all the meals were included with the price of the room.
The main gondola to the huge Ski Amade resort area is across the parking lot from the hotel and ski busses shuttling skiers to St. Johann depart from there as well. There is very little to offer in the way of shopping near the hotel. You'll need to travel the 10 minutes (by car) down to St. Johann for that.
I just can't say enough about the attentiveness and friendliness of the hotel staff. I'd read about Austrian hospitality but being from the US I'd grown cynical of such claims. However, the Berghof staff was amazing and did not disappoint.
Lastly, the location, the hospitality, the food and the simple joy of relaxing in my room or hotel bar after a day of snowboarding provided a great value for my money.
