“Great ski resort, average hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2009

The Hotel
The hotel itself is really nice. It is kept clean and has good pool/sauna facilities. The ski locker area is also very useful. However I found the main downfall was the service of the staff. Our tour operator left us off at the hotel at 11 at night, at which time all the hotel doors were shut and there was no one at the reception. We had to search all over for someone to let us in. We were supposed to receive a meal on arrival but again had to go looking for this, and it was incorrectly charged on our bill at the end. It took forever to get dinner served each night and the range of food was disappointing. Their '5 course menu' consisted mostly of salads. And the fondue evening promised in the brochure was canceled. We gave up on the food and went the the Argentine restaurant halfway between the hotel and centre of town. If you want a good feed I thoroughly recommend it!
The centre of town is a good 10 minute walk downhill. Don't remember them telling us that in the brochure.
The Resort:
Great resort for skiing. We are intermediate skiers and found the range of slopes great with more red and black slopes to keep us occupied than we could cover during the week. There is a ski bus that stops right outside the hotel. A tip though - its the last main stop on the way out of town and often the bus had filled up so it was sometimes easier to get the bus closer to town especially in the morning.
Ski school:
Was not impressed with the ski school. Booked a days lesson and spent the first hour waiting for them to allocate us to a group. After a few slopes we were told we would need to change to a different class and would have to get the gondola back down to the town to meet a new instructor before returning back up the mountain, which would have taken about another hour. Found our instructor unhelpful and gave up and got a refund. Wasted a full morning.
Summary:
I would go back to this resort, but not the hotel or ski school.

Lovely hotel just outside Kirchberg on the road to the Aschau and Pengelstein lift where the ski bus stops outside the hotel. During busy times it is sometimes worth catching the bus down the valley thro Kirchberg to the Fleckalmbahn lift as the bus is usually empty going this way. The ski area is that of Kitzbuhel, but quieter to access the lift system. Progression for less able or biginner skiers is not so good on this system but the skiing for others is quite good and extensive with the new lifts connecting Jochberg area and the Ski Welt if you should need it.
We had very wintery weather during our stay with only an bit of sunshine which is much the same as most places this winter (late March 09). We had some great powder conditions during the week and it was magic!
As for the hotel, it is very clean with great staff and the facilities are just awesome, including wellness areas and swimming pool.
Breakfast were just great as was the the afternoon teas with home made cakes etc. The main problem as we saw it was the lack of wholesome food at evening time. They definately do not provide a skiers evening meal in that the food was very pretentious in nature. 5 courses but minute and if you dont enjoy filling up with salads (as I dont) then you will be disappointed. The food was of good quality but mean in quantity. Their vegitarian option was appalling. My wife(a veggie) did not want the beef of the gala main course so was given extra veg as was in the main instead of what should have been a prepared veggie meal - poor. I could go on about the veggie option, but .........
It was more like a health farm diet than a skiers menu. I think they were trying to impress Michelin rather than satisfying punters. Artistic impression for th food 10 out of 10 but that does not carry any weigh with me! - big plates and very little food, you couldnt eat the plates! It would have been interesting if they offered a two tier half board system, where you could choose 3 decent courses or 5/6 of their pretentious nonesense for those who wanted it.
Having said all that it is a shame from my point of view, because the hotel is a great place to stay in a quiet location.
Town of Kirchberg did not impress me much.
