Surprising to find that this hotel is part of the Best Western marketing group. We stayed as a group of 3 friends who like to ski hard for most of the day, so location in-between the three main lifts (Gampen, Galzig & Rendl) was crucial to minimise time spent walking. Receptionists were vey welcoming, helpful and friendly. The room (214) was large, which was fine as we are not always completely tidy, yet there was plenty of room to spread out our stuff; sufficient room to hang up 3 ski-suits and plenty of storage space for all the rest of the skiing clobber etc. The main restaurant is large with a magnificently stylish wood-panelled ceiling, but elegantly divided up into several areas whilst still leaving room for a party of about 16 guys from London who certainly enjoyed some boisterous banter during dinner. There are at least two other more cozy/intimate dining rooms available for guests, all beautifully traditionally decorated. The antique staircase in the corner of reception is fascinating, and there are pieces of really old furniture etc. all over the hotel. Hotel and bar prices were on a par with other hotels, but there are obviously cheaper places to go if you just want a drink. The enormous yellow umbrella-covered outside bar at the far end of the hotel which I remember from a previous visit has gone some time ago and been replaced with a large extension housing a modern airy restaurant available to outside patrons. [This used to be the main place to meet at 4pm after a hard day's ski, but might have fallen victim to the construction of the "Base Camp" which is right at the bottom of the main (and only) busy run back to the village at the end of the day - one thing that St Anton really needs is an alternative way to get back home!] The restaurant staff are excellent and attentive - you never have to wait for any attention. Buffet breakfast is very extensive with a huge choice of things, all hot items are specially cooked to order which is very good. The choice ranges from cold meats, salmon dishes and cheese, to cereals, lovely moist muesli, dried fruits, grilled tomatoes etc. to a wide choice of breads and conserves. The food is very important to 3 hungry guys at the end of a hard day's ski especially when you only have time for a bowl of goulash soup at lunchtime! The food was nouvelle cuisine, but there are 7 courses so all but the most hungry can fill up. Despite others finding the portions were too small we found that we were adequately fed. The quality of the dining experience was very good with everything prepared and cooked extremely well. The Wellness Centre is extensive with a wide choice of very high quality facilities. Don't forget the sauna area which comprises a large sauna, hot steam room, ice room and large relaxation room etc. is nudist only and you have to remember to use a towel when actually inside the sauna itself. The swimming pool is very attractively arranged with very realistic rock formations around the pool containing a water fountain, underwater jet current you can swim against, underwater bubble jet etc. and also the obligatory jacuzzi. All in all a really relaxing experience after a long day on the slopes.
