“b&bs of the world take note - this is how it is done...”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

All the ingredients to allow you to relax and enjoy your holiday. This is however, for real - unlike many claims made by the leisure industry...
A superb host who remembers your name, what is important to you and pours a wonderful schnapps on arrival. Surroundings that are both traditional and up-to-date as they can be. Powerful wifi, organised and well-considered spaces. A venue in the centre of this working and truly pretty, Tirolean ski village.
High quality, fresh produce provides a sumptuous pre-skiing breakfast.
Bookings for restaurants and taxis made on your behalf and the whole village knows when Gitti calls - it happens.
You know when you arrive all will be under control and all you have to do is unpack and go ski - a rare peace of mind these days...

Another wonderful week with Gitti at Sonnwend. Have stayed here many times and have always felt spoilt and looked after. The rooms are spotless, mainly large and comfortable. All on- suite. Some are set up for self catering, but with an amazing buffet breakfast choice including "speck mit ei", scrambled or various omelets.

Gitti will happily book taxis or sort out any other of your needs whilst there. The rooms at the front and the lovely south facing veranda have wonderful view of the Wiederberger Horn and the Inner Alpbach valley. the House itself is pretty much in the centre of the village with all amenities very close by.

You wont be disappointed.

Room Tip: Front, South facing rooms have great views.

We spent 9 wonderful days in the splendid Alpbach and Haus Sonnwend seemed the perfect place for us. Gitti, the owner and the soul of the house, makes you feel at home (or better... :)...) every step of the way. The place is very clean, the rooms are spacious and have lovely views of the mountains, the breakfast is wonderful, free wi fi . We would recommend it to anyone wishing to spent some time in Alpbach. Thanks once again Gitti!

If only other hotels looked after their guests like Gitti does. The genuine attentive and warm service throughout is fab, the rooms very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was relaxed and yummy. Our family including teenagers enjoyed our stay hugely.

The Sonnwend is easily the best place to stay while skiing or walking in Alpbach. Gitti's care and dedication to her guests is truly fantastic. We have stayed at the Sonnwend every year in our ski trips to Alpbach, in our latest trip we stayed in one of the Sonnwend apartments and it was superb. Very well equipped, spacious and light. The changes made downstairs to the reception and ski room take the Sonnwend to the next level. I can't wait to come back to Alpbach and the Sonnwend next year.

Sonnwend's greatest asset is owner/manager, Gitti, who combines efficiency and energy with warmth and friendliness - and a delightful sense of humour. She knows how to make guests feel comfortable and welcome and she does it to perfection. (Gitti speaks perfect English.) Her attention to detail ensures the rooms and apartments are practical and appealing. We spent a few days in the small but compact apartment on the top floor with its own balcony. The bathroom is spacious with double vanity basins and heated floor. Then we had over a week in the new ground floor apartment. Although close to the road the insulation is very good and we were not disturbed by outside noise. Plenty of storage, full kitchen, spacious bathroom with heated floor. Very comfortable beds. The whole house is sparkling clean and attractively decorated with the traditional Austrian accent on wood. After weeks of travelling we were pleased to be able to use the washing machine, dryer and drying room. Breakfast was my idea of perfection, all fresh, tempting and, where possible, local produce. Meats, cheeses, muesli (with optional additions of pumpkin, sesame and sun flour seeds etc) fruit, freshly baked bread, local jams, eggs cooked to your liking, tea, coffee - including cappuccino. The guesthouse is right in the middle of the village. Free and very effective wifi. The whole two week stay met all our expectations and exceeded them. We will definitely return. It is the place to stay!

Beautiful guest house in a beautiful little village in the mountains. Exceptionally clean & comfortable. Very quiet even though our room was in the front on the street. You can just park your car and walk the village from here. We did many side trips in the 5 days we were in the area. Brigitte welcomed us so warmly, like we were already friends. She gives you a guest card that gives you free admittance on the lifts & buses. Breakfast was excellent with many choices. Fresh fruit is left out all day. Wifi worked great. We will definitely return.
