“Superbly enjoyable!”
Reviewed 2 January 2013

We stayed at the Grischuna for five nights over Christmas 2012. A small hotel, it is beautifully run by the Sattler family and situated less than ten minutes walk (downhill) to the main ski lifts, in a quiet part of St Anton with great views of the mountains. The walk in the morning was fine for warming up the legs, since your skis and boots are stored for free in the Intersport right opposite the lift you can do it in your normal boots. The hotel runs a shuttle bus at the end of the day to take you home.

We had a 'French' double room which was quite small but cosy and comfortable, with a balcony and lovely views. The bathroom was spotless with good towels and a fantastic hot shower. We also enjoyed the two BBC channels on cable (chilling out before dinner with some good quality Christmas TV!)

However the major highlight for us was the food, absolutely wonderful, restaurant quality with four courses every night apart from a six course 'gala' dinner on Christmas Eve. Really inventive, delicious home cooking, with perfectly-cooked cooked meats or fish, always the right-sized portions and with lovely sauces and accompaniments. They don't offer a choice but if you dislike something on the menu will always prepare an alternative. And a delicious buffet breakfast, including proper fresh apple muesli (which I love!) and eggs freshly cooked to order.

Raymond and Elfie and their team are great hosts, always helpful, friendly and full of useful tips and information about where to ski and go. We had to leave too early for breakfast on our last day but Elfie got up early to make us a coffee and provided a lovely packed lunch that kept us going nearly all the way home!

Austrian skiing and hospitality beats France every time. We will definitely return to the Grischuna, particularly with new Monarch flights to Friedrichshafen, which is just 90 minutes away.

Highly recommended and thank you Fam. Sattler for a wonderful Christmas!

My wife and I stayed here during the Christmas holiday. Our room (junior suite) was spacious and comfortable with majestic views. The host family was friendly and eager to help when needed, but also respected privacy. As others have stated, the exclamation point was the food - every meal was exceptional including Christmas Eve and night. The wait staff was among the best we've seen anywhere in the world. The "hill" will definitely get the legs burning. We've skiied all our lives in many parts of the world and found Arlberg (especially Lech and Christoph) to be some of the best (though a 2 foot snow storm certainly helped that).

Room Tip: splurge for the Junior Suite if available

Stayed at Grischuna over Christmas 2011. It was very pleasant stay in every way. The hosting family was wonderful and very helpful, We had a 4 year old child and he had plenty of positive attention, so he still talks about his experience and how he enjoyed his stay in Grischuna. The hotel is very pleasant, wooden traditionally decorated. Very nice small area for relaxation with sauna. Nice food at breakfast and dinner. The walk down to the lift and the resort central area was not a problem especially there is a place at the lifts where you can keep your skiing gear. And afternoon pick-up was always very handy.
If we ever return to St Anton I would stay in Grischuna hotel again.
Thank you to Family Sattler to make our stay very enjoyable.

We spent 10 days in Grischuna, in St. Anton, for the New Year Eve in 2010.
Everything was excellent: accommodation, excellent food, more than friendly staff... we felt pampered!
The hotel is located in a very quiet area, 10 minutes walk away from all major destinations: bars, restaurants, club.
The greatest choice of all was the half-board reservation: all dishes exceeded many other 4* restaurants menus, so I left with 3 kilos more in weight!
Sankt Anton itself it's a place to come back, over and over again, and Grischuna definitely is the perfect accomodation!

Room Tip: We had a corner room, with a great view on two sides of the mountain!

Very clean, comfortable and quiet Lovely hot and powerful showers. Loved the mix of nationalities staying - most of whom were on their 20th visit!! Fantastic food and service both at breakfast and dinner. Wine not cheap! We would stay there again. A real treat. Sadly not open in spring nor summer. Very helpful in collecting luggage from one hotel and transporting to theirs + the lift to the train station on our last morning made things easy for us upon departure.

Room Tip: Personally I would not want to be off the reception/bar area and was glad we were allocated a room o...

Have just spent another Christmas holiday at the Grischuna hotel, and had to repeat my previous review, as we had such a good time. The welcome is outstanding, and the food is AMAZING. I can't recommend it too highly.
I arrived in a blizzard, having had to abandon the family and the car as we couldn't get the snow chains on, but the owner and his son immediately set off to rescue them. This is the kind of service you only get from a family run business.

We have stayed here on several occasions. The owners and their sons are fantastic hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. Our car was rescued from enormous snow-drifts before we had even got up! The food is excellent and the wine too. This hotel is also the cleanest I have ever stayed in.
And in reply to a previous review, I can't imagine the owner ever being rude to anyone, and the number of repeat guests testifies to the warm welcome we, and others, have already received.
