“Another excellent Ski holiday”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

Spent a bit less than a week for a winter ski holiday here. We booked a room with garden view, it was all quiet and we could sleep very well, however I can´ t comment how much of the traffic noise can be heard from the other side. The view from the room on the 2nd floor was amazing. I can only concur with the review of another guest, that the keys with those MASSIVE and HEAVY bronze (?) attachments are very unpractical and I was always praying that it doesn´t fall down on my foot...
The absolute highlight here is the cuisine, dinners were fantastic (breakfasts too), although on the other hand, after a long day of skiing sometimes you just wished the dishes would come quicker. This was extremely irritating when you noticed that the waiters were waiting with the dessert for other latecomers who were still finishing the main dish. So a bit improvement here wouldn´t go a miss. But if you like 2hr dinners then this is definitely the place to be.

The room was spacious, the bath OK, the toliet and bath are unfortunately not separated. Sleep quality was very good and cleaniness spotless. There´s a garage in the hotel, which is a plus. Staff is friendly and helpful. The spa area is modern and tidy, sauna, steam bath, indoor pool are just perfect for relaxing after a day in the mountains. During our week there were no school holidays, so everything was perfectly quiet. Wi-Fi worked well, but the 10hr period after the initial log-in leads to repeated visits of the reception - a 24hr window would be more user-friendly...

Conclusion: Yes, despite not being the cheapest, I would return for another stay (summer ?),

I booked a ''maissonette ''room third floor.It was spacious and with a very nice view. It is a veryold hoteland clearlly they tried to keep up with the times and in some areas they were succesfful.

Meals (HB) were very tasty and clearlly the chef is a professionist . It is true that beverage priceas are a little high as someof the previous rewieres wrote but there are not unussual for a four star hotel. Services in the restaurant were really good and staf is very friendlly.
Regarding the negative observations there are few but maybe important:

Spa area is relativelly small and the relaxatiin room is conecting the pool area with the sauna area so you can easy be disturbed by those which are comming and going from the sauna area. However the hotel if full of clients with no ideea what a relaxation area means so they are comming inthe area and beggin chatting with loud voice for hours. But this is not the quilt of the hotel but the quilt of the uncivilized customers.

Another issue is that the ski bus is comming only every 30 minutes so ifyou have achild attending the ski school the ski bus programmis not matching the school programm so we used the car .
Overallthe hotel is good,services are good maybe a little overpriced.
PS I forgot to mention that room keys are attached to a bronze piece weighting around half a kilo ,maybe is nice and has a antique flavour but is really unpracticall.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the exterior pool are quiet and maissonette rooms are really spacious

I stayed at the Rauter for 2 nights. The rooms are fine. The location in the center of the pleasant town of Matrei in Osttirol is ideal. Breakfast was terrific. The restaurant is known for its international menu and it was very good. The draught beer and Austrian wine selections were excellent. The Hotel has fishing rights to over 35 kilometers of local rivers, and I came to fish them in mid-July. When I arrived I was told that they all were not fishable, mostly due to glacial runoff and that July was rarely a good time to fish for that reason. I should have been told that many months earlier when I made a reservation including fishing. Thus, a downgrade on service. Fortunately there are many excellent hiking options in the beautiful mountains surrounding Matrei so I had a good time anyway.
