“Another wonderful week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2011

Just back from a weeks skiing in Hinterthal and another wonderful stay at the Simonhof Hotel. This is the third time we have stayed at this family run hotel and as usual it was a superb week. This hotel is a very short walk to a drag lift with two runs and a link to the new 6 chair lift which opens up a huge amount of skiing. You don't have to walk back at the end of the day as there is an excellent ski bus service.
We normally arrive at the hotel early in the morning having driven over night and everything is done to get us into our room as soon as possible normally before 12. The rooms are really comfortable and very clean. Dinner is a 5 course affair and always delicious as is the buffet breakfast. Soup and cakes are also available from lunch time throughout the afternoon.
Good heated boot and ski storage.
Be prepared in the Sauna to bare all! But just what you need after a hards day skiing.
Margit and her staff work really hard to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Nothing is too much trouble.

This hotel is a real Austrian gem. Can't wait to go back next year.

I spent my wedding week in this hotel and got married in the village of Hinterthal last week.
Its actually my second time staying here after visiting Hinterthal in the summer.

I really could not recommend the Simonhof Hotel highly enough! Both myself and my new wife were catered for in the highest standards. Margret (the owner) and her staff went over and beyond anything we expected, making our week there the most special ever.

All our other guests who were staying in private accommodation in the village were always welcome in the bar.

On the wedding day, myself and guests were eating at the wedding venue (Alm Hut bar, the other side of the village), so couldn't attend the evening meal at the Simonhof. Without any questions from us Margret organised a special private cooked breakfast for the day after, which was well received after a very late night.

The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The food was fantastic every night we were there and to a standard i would be happy with from a high class restaurant.

The ski runs were no more than a few minutes walk in the morning and either a bus trip or 15 minute walk on the way back from the slopes. The front desk was always happy to help in any way they could.

The hotel is at the top end of the village, at the other end to the main ski lift. It was possible to ski to the lift after a short walk uphill, but there was no way back without carrying your skis (uphill). Although there was an apres ski bar on the way that we used each evening (Alm Bar).
The room was nice with a balcony and view, but the bathroom was small, sliding opaque door and washbasin in the bedroom.
The food was good in the evenings with a limited choic but cooked well.The beer (lager) was ok as was the house wine.
Breakfast was your usual continental, bread, rolls, ham, cheese and jam.
The hotel sells ski passes, with a 3euro deposit. Ski and boot room on the lowest level served its purpose but did get a bit busy in the morning with only 4 chairs.
We were leaving the hotel at 4.30pm which allowed us another days skliing. We arranged for 2 out of the 8 rooms we were using to be available until we left which was very convient.
HOWEVER
When we came to leave, we were presented with a bill for 25euros from the night before but dated the following day for wine and beer on a room that had paid cash all night. The staff were adamant we pay and reluctantly we all chipped in (we beleive the staff in error had put the wrong room number on the bill, nothing to do with our group).
Next we asked for the 3euro deposit back for each of the ski passes. This was not given as the staff were not authorised to give it !!!!!
