All the ingredients to allow you to relax and enjoy your holiday. This is however, for real - unlike many claims made by the leisure industry... A superb host who remembers your name, what is important to you and pours a wonderful schnapps on arrival. Surroundings that are both traditional and up-to-date as they can be. Powerful wifi, organised and... More

Another wonderful week with Gitti at Sonnwend. Have stayed here many times and have always felt spoilt and looked after. The rooms are spotless, mainly large and comfortable. All on- suite. Some are set up for self catering, but with an amazing buffet breakfast choice including "speck mit ei", scrambled or various omelets. Gitti will happily book taxis or sort... More

We spent 9 wonderful days in the splendid Alpbach and Haus Sonnwend seemed the perfect place for us. Gitti, the owner and the soul of the house, makes you feel at home (or better... :)...) every step of the way. The place is very clean, the rooms are spacious and have lovely views of the mountains, the breakfast is wonderful,... More

If only other hotels looked after their guests like Gitti does. The genuine attentive and warm service throughout is fab, the rooms very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was relaxed and yummy. Our family including teenagers enjoyed our stay hugely.

The Sonnwend is easily the best place to stay while skiing or walking in Alpbach. Gitti's care and dedication to her guests is truly fantastic. We have stayed at the Sonnwend every year in our ski trips to Alpbach, in our latest trip we stayed in one of the Sonnwend apartments and it was superb. Very well equipped, spacious and... More

Sonnwend's greatest asset is owner/manager, Gitti, who combines efficiency and energy with warmth and friendliness - and a delightful sense of humour. She knows how to make guests feel comfortable and welcome and she does it to perfection. (Gitti speaks perfect English.) Her attention to detail ensures the rooms and apartments are practical and appealing. We spent a few days... More

Beautiful guest house in a beautiful little village in the mountains. Exceptionally clean & comfortable. Very quiet even though our room was in the front on the street. You can just park your car and walk the village from here. We did many side trips in the 5 days we were in the area. Brigitte welcomed us so warmly, like... More

You couldn't ask for much more in a small pension - it is all there! Immaculately clean and fresh, good facilities, generous buffet breakfast and most of all, charming hostess who made you feel exceptionally welcome from start to finish. Thoroughly recommended all round.

The owner was an absolute delight, offering us a schnapps as we arrived. However, the gasthaus was highly occupied and our room was tiny, with an even tinier bathroom. My husband had difficulty in the shower, as it was so small. I gave up attempting to shave my legs in it - too small! Breakfast was excellent, with fresh eggs... More

You rarely meet that superb receptionist(/owner?), who is extremely helpful, funny and nice. Even before seeing our room, I was ready to return to his idyllic Haus. The room was actually a fresh, high-quality residence with kitchen. We were amazed. What a pity we were staying only one night and all the groceries were closed. But there were good restaurant...
