We chose this hotel for a skiing holiday through Crystal because it was just across the road from a red run, and far enough away from the town to be quiet. We have been skiing for 40 years, have our own skis and boots and didn't want lessons so it suited us perfectly. We booked late when we knew the... More

Recently got back from a weeks skiing in Ellmau staying at the Gastof Schonblick. The hotel is very welcoming, well looked after and spotlessly clean. We had 2 front bedrooms no's 7&8 overlooking the main road and the Kaiserbahn beautiful views all round, the rooms were very spacious with modern en-suite facilities. Erika and Maria seem to work all hours,... More

Our first reaction upon entering the hallway was 'uh oh'. It's underlit and quite drab. Thankfully everywhere else was much better. When the owner realised there were three of us, she offered a free upgrade to an apartment (room 14), which had a separate bedroom for the kids. Bliss. Our apartment was bright and spacious. There is plenty of storage,... More

I really enjoyed staying in this small hotel. It was very welcoming and friendly. Maria and her staff work wonders. Our room was clean, spacious and bright and airy. The hotel is very clean and well maintained. The food also was very good. It is a bit of a walk up and down the hill to the town but I... More

This hotel is a small pension like hotel/café up the hill from Ellmau town. The walk down takes 10 minutes and up 15 at a steady pace. It is along a road and relatively steep. In winter I believe there is a bus but in summer there isn't and its not ideal after walking all day. More importantly it makes... More

The chalet is typically Tyrolean,quite pretty with bare wood and geraniums outside. It is,as others have said,a steep 15 min walk out of town which is not ideal for older people or if you would like to go into town in the evenings. Our room was reasonably sized and cleaned regularly though a little gloomy and noisy, being under the... More

Pick your time for a shower as at peak time in the evening the water can be a bit tepid Amazing views of the valley... More

We had a lovely week here. Very friendly, clean, good sized rooms, delicious food (especially the Austrian dishes). Erika ( as others have said) is a star, making you feel at home and treating you as a person, not just a room number. Lovely views from the hotel- we had 2 rooms on the top floor with an adjoining balcony.... More

We have just returned from a weeks skiing as a family of 5. On arrival at the Schonblick we were offered an extra room for our 16 year old as Erika thought that the family room would be too cramped - above and beyond and we were very grateful! The rooms are very basic and plain but clean and cleaned... More

We were on a skiing holiday for 1-week, and our accommodation (organised via Crystal) was Hotel Schonblick. A friendly, clean, well maintained, family run hotel. It’ll never win awards for its choice of wine, but this is Austria and beer is the usual tipple. The skiing is not quite door-to-door, but close enough for most folk: a 1-minute walk from... More
