Hotel Wiesental
Ranked #22 of 33 Hotels in Obergurgl
Reviewed 31 August 2009

what a great time we had in obergurl we have been before but first time in this hotel we had a superior room and it was worth the extra supplement . one of the best hotels we have stayed in the food was first class and the staff where realy good nothing to much trouble with the recent refurbishment we had to leave walking boots and poles in the dry room in. the basement you wher e not allowed to take them to your room which i felt abit worried about has had had just brought new walking poles and was concerned about leaving them for anyone to come along and take but it was fine once i got use to the idea . The hotel is realy well situated right in centre but also overlooks the path down to the river for the start of some great walking ie ramoul hous fantastic eight hour walk just over 3,000meters with fantastic views the hiking just goes on and on endless walking paths we had a twin centre holiday this was our first week realy did not want to leave we shall be returning to obergurgl and will stay at the wiesental again and have a longer stay. The only fault that i could find with this hotel was that they have fresh milk from local farms which tastes sour and takes some gettting use to but if thats all i can fine fault with it not much is it . what a great holiday it you like high alpine hikes get your self off to obergurgl and stay at this hotel .

For a 4 star expensive hotel, we found this Hotel a horrible experience. We felt it was regimented, food was poor (example Gala night main course was Pork, served rare !!) There is no hospitality from the hotel management, we were treated like an inconvenience right from the start. We arrived late through no fault of our own and was told we could only have a main course (we should have had a four course meal) despite the restaurant still serving! We were then asked if we would like a coffee - thinking this might be in place of a more substantial meal, we accepted only to find we were charged for it!. None of our group had any of the rooms advertised on their website and all ended up with very small rooms. We had an afternoon transfer on the day of our return, so decided to ski in the morning to be told we could get changed in the boot room, even though the hotel has a spa facility. Definitely not four star treatment from this hotel – if you are going to Obergurgl try the Gamper, one of our party was lodged there and had the sort of treatment you should expect from a 4 star hotel.

This is the first time we've stayed at the Wiesental on a ski holiday having stayed at the nearby Martinshof last year. Although the Wiesental is a much pricier 4 star the quality of accommodation is very similar and I suspect that throughout Obergurgl you find that all accommodation is of a very high standard, They offer generally good cuisine, a good range of drinks at the bar and an extensive lunch menu for weary skiers. This is a nice hotel with a price tag to match if you're staying in height of season, but we stay there with friends who have travelled to Obergurgl many times for skiing and rate this hotel highly for a very long time. The management are quite pleasant and their kinds run around all day long, giving it a nice family feel. Our room had no balcony and looked out over a side street which was just a little overlooked by the next door property. Ask for a balcony room and a stunning view if you get the chance, our friends stayed at the same room rate and had a much nicer view and outdoor terrace

Would we go back? Probably, although value for money means you can probably get a better room rate at another hotel of good quality in this generally advance-booked resort during the peak ski season

Sadly an experience where the management put their needs before their clients. Having booked two double rooms, two of our party dropped out, despite offering to pay the full rate for the rooms we were forced to share one room which was deeply unsatisfactory.When asked for an explanation were told that they could fill the other double room and improve the bar takings. And still got charged for a night that the room remained unoccupied. Nice. Also very reluctant to provide ordinary tap water to guests in the restaurant, preferring to sell expensive bottled water despite having us having ordered wine. Result; lost long standing clients for a few bob. Sad.

This isn't my first visit to the Hotel Wiesental in Obergurgl and will not be my last. Over the past couple of years major changes have been made to the hotel and rooms but have not affected the ambience or character of the place that I remember from my last visit 6 years ago. Then it was a 3 star hotel, but should have been 4 stars. Now it has been awarded its deserved 4 star rating. The room prices are excellent value during the summer where half board is offered.

The hotel is situated in what has to be the most picturesque location in the village, with the views from the restaurant and cafe/terrace looking onto the Hohe Mut and Hangerer mountains with the glacial backdrop of the Gurgl Ferner glacier in the distance. Its also away from the main street so its very quite at night. Several of the rooms also look onto this scene.

When you've had a hard days walking in the surrounding mountains then its a great place to go to for lunch or a meal or something to drink as the prices are excellent value for money.

The accomodation, service and quality of food was of the highest order, and Manfred and Rosie Schieber along with their excellent friendly staff did everything they could to make our holiday a memorable and enjoyable one. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they would bend over backwards to help.

The village of Obergurgl is at 1930 metres and is therefore suitable for people with allergies such as hayfever as there is no pollen. I spoke to several people who have been visiting Obergurgl for many years because of the fresh clean mountain air as they said that it helped their breathing.

Whether your going to Obergurgl for a relaxing holiday or a walking holiday then I would say that the Hotel Wiesental is up their with the best in Austria, so give it a try.
