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!
