I came here on a skiing holiday with my wife and four kids. After having read all the reports on tripadvisor I had expected to be blown away. We had a great holiday and we enjoyed the stay, but I don't think we will come back.
The hotel has a very Austrian decoration. A lot of wood, copper lamps and statues of local saints. It is certainly cosy, but a little outdated and not quite what we expected when booking a 5* hotel.
They are friendly and eager to please. Good job guys!
We had half- board, which means a great breakfast buffet, tea with cakes and sandwiches at 3 pm and a 4/5 course dinner. There was a lot of variation. The food was fresh and well cooked, often sourced from the hotels own farms. The quality of the evening meals varied from tasty local cooking to exquisite. My kids, who are notoriously critical of any food they don't know, loved it. The cold fish is great, don't go for fish as a main course.
Thermal baths, sauna, spa
The pools and sauna are great. The hotel should spend a little money on small improvements, like mending cracks and old tiles. These small things taint an otherwise perfect experience.
The rooms are comfortable and clean, but also a little outdated. Housekeeping is very efficient.
Skiing from the hotel
It is interesting that many of the guests in this hotel are 55+ and spend their time walking in the mountains or in the spa. It is a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel to the ski-lift. This is not impossible, but not comfortable either, especially after a long day skiing. The hotel might impove this by supplying lockers for skis and shoes by the lift. As it stands, I would advise this hotel as a spa or a hiking base, but not so much as a skiing hotel.
