“Skiing with the family”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

Stayed at this hotel during a skiing holiday in Feb 2012. Excellent location for access to the Hoch Zillertal valley ski area and only an hour drive from Innsbruck airport.

The hotel was everything we had hoped. Very clean, friendly staff, exceptionally big bedrooms with lounge area for relaxing after a hard days ski.

The food was first class, including breakfast and evening meal. Was was unexpected but welcomed, was the afternoon buffet on returning from a day on the slopes. This included either cakes or cold meats and a warm drink. The evening meals were either set menu or a buffet, both of which were always good quality with a reasonable choice.

Only down side was smoking in the bar, however you could sit in the lounge area and have a drink. The outdoor pool was a bit cold, however this did not stop the kids.

Not the cheapest hotel, but would is still good value.

We were welcomed by a friendly receptionist who gave us a glass of sparkling wine. We had 3 rooms and they were all of a different quality. One was a large very modern suite, one was a large slightly dated double and one was a very dated small twin that I didn't think was up to 4 star standard. (Not sure if they are slowly updating the rooms, if they aren't then they should if they want to keep their 4 stars). Our room had a balcony and was kept clean by the friendly housekeeping staff. The Bathroom was small and only had a shower. The Rooms come with bathrobes and extra towels for use in the spa. It would have been nice to have tea and coffee facilities in the room. Only way to get a coffee is to buy it in the restaurant.

The restaurant is quite big and has lots of windows to make the most of the views. The food was plentiful and very good quality. The breakfast buffet is huge with a very good choice to suit all tastes. During the afternoon there are hot and cold snacks laid on and each evening the menu has a different theme. There was a problem with one of the vegetarian choices one evening, and the restaurant staff on duty didn't handle the situation very well. (Out of character really as all the staff are very friendly and helpful) We complained to reception (one of the family members who own and run the hotel) who apologised and gave us some wine and beer to make amends. One of our party had a birthday and they decorated the table and made an extra fuss of us, which was very nice. During breakfast one day the owner was sitting and talking to some guests at the table next to us and she started smoking (restaurant is supposed to be non smoking) which I thought was a bit rude.

One of the reasons for choosing this hotel was for the spa facilities. They have a heated indoor/outdoor pool, choice of 5 different steam/sauna rooms an infra-sauna, plus lots of showers and a couple of rest/relaxing areas. There is fruit, tea and cold mountain spring water to enjoy. It got quite busy and a little bit noisy from people who obviously weren't used to spa etiquette. This is a mixed spa where you are expected to not wear swimwear whilst using the saunas (there are multi-lingual signs stating this). This was ignored by some of the Italian and Russian guests who refused to remove their swimwear.

There is a free ski bus that stops outside the hotel and there are heated storage areas for your ski gear. The hotel organises some trips in the local area and there is free wifi in the reception area or paid Internet of you have forgotten your laptop or smart phone.

After many trips to Austria staying in various hotels my wife and I decided to return for our annual ski holiday in our favourite destination, the beautiful mountains in the Tirol .After careful selection we settled on staying at the Magdalena hotel. When we arrived at the reception we were welcomed by a charming receptionist who offered us a glass of prosecco which we sat and enjoyed while she quickly and efficiently checked us in.The level of service at the hotel is very high and focussed on the guest in a very pleasant way, the food was very nice and varied with different themes, the ski bus stop was just outside if you wanted to do you own thing but there was also a very good ski program set up by Hannes who we believed to be the son of the house. Hannes was very enthusiastic and seemed a great asset to the team. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We have been fortunate enough to have experienced many fine things in our lives and cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Fantastic.

We have been there for a ski trip, the hotel itself is very good, the double room Magdalena was really double, it had two rooms, like a little apartment! All spotless clean and well maintained. Very quiet. The SPA is also nice, with a swimming pool partly indoor. The restaurant is outstanding. The staff is nice, friendly and helpful. Great view, as there are few buildings around. I would have rated 5 if it would have been closer to the cable cars. Nevertheless, the bus stop is in front of the hotel and the trip is max 10 mins, not too crowded. To summarise, if you don't mind using the bus, I highly recommend!

We were very pleased with this hotel. They picked us up from the local station. The room was very comfortable and clean. The hotel is beautifully located with gorgeous views up and down the valley. It is within a few minutes of a bank, tourist info office and the zillertalbahn station in Reid, which makes getting around easy if you don't have a car. The staff were extremely friendly and helpfull. There are free excursions organised daily and also events in the evening. The spa facilities and pool were also very good. The hotel is not so large to have lost a personal touch and the hotel owner was very friendly and was passionate about the hotel and keen to help the guests in any way. She advised us on day trips for example. The food was also good. We would definitley go back. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. Have no reservations about recommending this hotel.
