11 of us have recently returned from our first Family Christmas skiing Holiday together. There were 7 Adults and 4 kids ranging in age from 12, 10, 3 & 2. With no previous knowledge of the Alpenhof Hotel, we were overwhelmed by the quality, friendliness, efficiency, and innate ability of staff to pre-empt your every need. The bedrooms and bathrooms were top quality both in terms of space, cleanliness and comfort. We had a family room which comprised of double bed, sofa bed for our 3 year old and cot for our 2 yr old. The food in the alpenhof is quite simply the best I have ever tasted anywhere! It was like dining in a Michelin Star restaurant every night and the anticipation of waiting for your next course to see if it could possibly exceed the quality of the previous became a great source of entertainment and delight for us every evening. The facilities in the Hotel cater for all comers. We found the playroom brilliant for the kids. They have a climbing wall, fuzzball, X Box, a DVD player and TV, giant Lego and lots more to entertain. The swimming pool and health centre is exquisite and the variety of saunas, steambaths, relaxation rooms (both enclosed and with views of the Glacier) is refreshing! How this Hotel is not a 5 Star is beyond me, however, perhaps that's a good thing as you get the standards one would expect of a 5 Star but without the stuffiness or pretence you often get in some Hotels! I promised the Family Dengg (I hope I spelt that right) that I would write a review because this Hotel deserves to be top of the rankings in Hintertux if not Austria itself! If you are considering a ski holiday in Austria and have a few quid to spare, you will not get better value for money than the Alpenhof. It was a real treat and I genuinely hope to return again some day in the future!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Alpenhof is the only Superior hotel in Hintertux and nestles in the dreamy mountain setting of Tuxertal - just 1 minute from the Hintertuxer Glacier. The cosy rooms and suites in fine Tyrolean style are fitted with tiled stoves, lovely bathrooms, most have a balcony and everything that your heart yearns for. With excellent cuisine, a selection of traditional, international and sophisticated delights, the Alpenhof has already stolen many a connoisseur's heart. In autumn 2014 the culinary range was awarded 1 'toque' by Gault Millau. To switch off and relax our 1600m ² relaxation realm, VITALIS SPA, has 6 different saunas, steam baths, quiet rooms and more. The indoor pool, at 128 m², is also suitable for performance-oriented swimmers. The 160 m² XXL gym is available for your own fitness programme. In summer we also offer a 1000 m² Alpine garden. Massages, beauty, bath packages and much more are available to book. Refreshments are available at the vitamin bar which offers fruit juices, a selection of tisanes and invigorating spring water. The fantastic location in the middle of the ski area, at the foot of the Hintertuxer Glacier, sets skier's hearts racing. Snow-assured from October through to May - there is powder snow here right into the spring and the glacier ski area is open year-round. In summer Tuxertal is a natural paradise which has a fantastic range of sports - 350 km hiking trails, 30 managed Alpine inns, 90 summit tours, 70 km mountain bike tours, parties and celebrations and numerous excursion destinations. And, with the maxim being 'More Service', it is a matter of course that the Alpenhof has ski guides in the winter and hiking and mountain guides in the summer who are 'ready to get out there'. ... more less
