SkiVal and the Chalet:

We stayed in Chalet Loori over the last week of Jan 2014, travelling as part of a group of 15 professionals.

Flights and transfers with a combination of Monarch (from Manchester) and Aer Lingus (Gatwick) were uncomplicated. Group members travelling from Manchester to Innsbruck were redirected to Friedrichschafen due to bad weather and were easily accommodated on a different transfer bus. Well done Ski Val.

Upon arrival we were greeted by our hosts Harry and Georgia who provided a great introduction to the chalet details and the town. The hosts proved to be a friendly and efficient team providing great service throughout the week. Thanks for putting up with our sometimes random apres ski antics!

Food: Good continental breakfast with hot option (bacon/egg/mushrooms/toms) on the staffed days with croissants on the hosts' day off. Evening meals were great for a ski chalet. A four course meal was provided every night, with canapes and an aperitif in the lounge followed by thoughtful starters, mains and desserts. All ingredients seemed fresh and dishes well cooked. Portion sizes were ample, and Harry the chef catered for vegetarians and a lactose intolerant group member with ease. Ample free white (average) and red (good) wines were provided.

Afternoon tea and cakes were available upon return from the slopes.

Georgia ensured the chalet was always clean and tidy, and rooms were serviced every day.

It was good to see Alex the resort manager popping in every now and again to check everything was ok and she organised a meal out for us when the Chalet team had a day off (Thursdays).

The Chalet itself is reasonably modern and clean and tidy. Rooms were mostly twins/doubles with modern bathrooms and good showers. The sauna was used quite a bit for a post ski chill. The large living room features a big TV which we used for a few movie nights and the balcony was useful for chilling beers. There is a big staircase which connects all the rooms over about 5-6 floors. The ski locker is a bit more of a ski cupboard but in St. Anton people tend to leave their skis in a locker in the resort centre by the main lifts so this wasn't a problem.

Apart Loori is located about 25 m from the ski bus stop offering busses into town for the main lifts every 10 mins or so. You can also get the bus to Lech from here but its pretty rammed out by the time it stops outside the chalet so better to head into town (start point) to guarantee a seat. It takes about 5-10 mins to walk down the hill to the main lifts.

The Ski Area:

We were fortunate enough to enjoy several snowfalls early in the week. If the snow is bad in St. Anton, or the pistes are crowded/too steep/too mogul packed then a quick trip to Lech or Zurs for wider easier skiing is well worth it.

We can recommend the ski show as an interesting evening activity, although singing along to MJ's USA for Africa 'We are the world' was a bit too much for us at the end. The rest of the freestyle skiing/demoing was well worth a watch with a warm gluwein.

We liked Scotty's bar for a drink. Mooserwirt and Krazy Kangaruh are on slope apres ski classics. Avoid Bar Cuba unless you are a footy lad. Anthony's is a bit more upmarket for drinks/pizza.

We can recommend Jennewein or Fauner (SkiVal's partner) for hire. Be careful not to choose an online hire deal resulting in you having to go miles out of resort in order to save 20 or so euros. Its not worth the hassle particularly if you want to change equipment mid week.

In all a top week, thanks SkiVal.

PS. Not sure about the 1* reviews below. Must have been a bad team last year. We had a great time!

Room Tip: Lower rooms are quieter and away from the kitchen and lounge (on the upper floors).

Dear Rob
Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We have had wonderful feedback about the Loori team - Georgia, Harry and Alex so it is nice for them to be able to bask in their well deserved glory! The chalet only has one more available week this season so has proved very popular.
Hope to able to help with another Ski-Val holiday in the future.
Regards
Sam

This chalet has clearly sorted itself out from last year. Georgie, Harry and Ange were great hosts and could not have been more helpful.

Harry is a great cook and his food was spot on every evening and Ange and Georgie were superb at looking after us.

We were blessed with the other guests being great craic which definitely helped with myself and my ski partner not getting evicted.

Don't book with Ski Val, we had the misfortune to stay in this chalet, the food was awful, so bad that most evening we ate out. When you see your chalet hosts cooking without washing his hands and the filth in the kitchen its a wonder nobody was sick. When I complained to Ski Val, Jackie Harris replied saying that other guests enjoyed their stay, which I know wasn't the case as others told me they where going to complain too.

We would just like to take the opportunity to thank all of you who have taken the time to call and chat to us about these 2 reviews and subsequently booked Chalet Loori. The chalet is already half booked for next season (2013/14)!
Being a small independent company our resort team are a key part of our success and we were very proud of our hard working team in St Anton last season. The vast majority of our weekly 150 guests staying in any of our lovely chalets had a wonderful holiday and were full of praise for our chalet staff and their efforts looking after them.
Unfortunately, occasionally, as in any business, there can be staff issues which were swiftly dealt with.
If you like the look of Chalet Loori, do please give us a call 01822 611200 and have a chat.

Overall it was an extremely disappointing and unsettling stay at the Chalet Loori. Having to complain about fundamental matters such as basic food hygiene, cleanliness, and hospitality should never have arisen, and these elements of the Ski Val holiday were nothing like the boasts of your website. “Cuisine” it was not, “..cheerful, enthusiastic, hardworking..” chalet hosts they were not. If this holiday had been an item bought from a retail shop I would have returned it for a full refund; significantly not as described.

Ski Val ................. nil points!
