Really loved this hotel. It has a great and accomodating staff that goes out of their way to make your holiday unforgettable. Anything we asked they tried to arrange and especially for the kids they were very flexible with the dinner every evening (we booked half board), no problems to change pasta carbonara into pasta bolognese or have icecream instead...

Looking back at other reviews there appears to be mixed reactions to this place but on the whole the hotel is ok. We were given a very nice welcome and a free drink in the bar on arrival. Nearly all the staff came across very nice and eager to help. The food in the restaurant was good and the breakfast... More

Having been to Austria on several occasions and stayed in similar hotels, this hotel is one of the very best if not the best so far in terms of quality and service. Really good restaurant and service and friendly bar staff too. Great "wellness" facilities. Would definitely go back

Rating this hotel is easy -"excellent in every area". Toby and his staff were truly wonderful - nothing was too much trouble. Just loved the lounge/bar areas - so cosy and welcoming. Breakfast and dinner were first class and the wellness facilities an added bonus. We plan to return next season............bring it on!!

I felt so welcome and comfortable as soon as we arrived. Our room was very clean and cozy. This hotel was the perfect choice for our ski trip. Located near the Zwölferkogelbahn gondola, it took less than 10 minutes from the time we left the hotel to sitting on the lift! Personally, my favorite were the traditional Austrian dishes served...

The hotel was recommended to us by friends and we truly had the best experience. The hotel seems to be under new management and all the staff as well as the owner (whom we had the pleasure to meet) went out of their way to make our stay amazing. Breakfast and dinner were included. We got to taste real Austrian... More

The Sonnalp hotel really is a good find, the food and staff were excellent. Having read the reviews about the steep hill, we were a bit worried about the location. But whilst the hill was steep it's very short and the views from the bedrooms more than make up for a few moments out of breath after climbing the hill.... More
