Just opposite the Alpendorf ski lift and overlooking the valley this has one of the best locations in St Johann,. The location is in a hamlet with a few other hotels which has a limited night-life but adequate if you are not a party animal. The hotel has a beautiful but small pool and a great sauna and gym with... More

We stayed at the Hotel Oberforsthof for one night as part of a three-day trip from Prague, into the Austrian Alps and back up to Prague via Cesky Krumlov. We paid €331 for two rooms for one night, booked and prepaid through Expedia. The price included breakfast and there was no charge for parking. The hotel is very picturesque. Our... More

The hotel and staff are fantastic. Pool, saunas, gym, free kids corner attended by a very nice lady, library with fireplace, fantastic view and location, it is all there and looks like no expense was spared. We chose the hotel because we are foodies and we are chasing Gault Millau restaurants around the world. They have 15 points... but... we... More

The Oberforsthof Hotel is a great place to stay ; it has very comfortable and spacious rooms, a great kitchen and very friendly staff, at the reception as well as in the restaurant and bar. Anywhere you come in the hotel, you always feel at home.

Cross the road and the piste and chairlift are there! Fantastic food. Not sure who drank the sauerkraut juice at breakfast but no doubt very healthy. We preferred freshly squeezed orange juice! Substantial afternoon tea although tea to drink or coffee are charged for! Great swimming pool and some members of our party also enjoyed other spa type facilities. Comfortable... More

The location of this hotel makes it pricey, but once you arrive you will forget the price. The staff is more than willing to help out. Restaurant service is amazing, excellent food offerings. Wellness area is one of best I've experienced in Europe.

You don't feel like in a hotel but surrounded with family.everything had been taken care of with attention to every detail. You are treated like kings and queens not to mention how awesome they were with... More

This use to be a great 5 star hotel. It still has some leftovers from back when this hotel was great. The price is overrated and the food sucks. Cafe quality at best. Sonnhof on the other side is owned by the brother of the former owners. It's also a 4 star, but with better food, better prices and better... More
