We stayed here over Christmas week for a skiing holiday. It's in Kiensberg, on the way to Kaisers which is above the village of Steeg im Lechtal, which in turn is about 15 minutes from the excellent ski resort of Warth.
The road up from Steeg to the Alpenhof is steep so if you're travelling in winter and it's snowy or icy you're likely to need snow chains (it can be got to without them but you'd need experience of driving on snow/ice and nerves of steel). Our hired people carrier couldn't manage it, despite winter tyres, so we had to leave it in Steeg each evening. However, a mini-bus which links with the main ski bus to Warth was laid on from the Alpenhof down to Steeg in the morning and back up again in the late afternoon so it all worked out OK.
We stayed half-board and the self-service breakfast buffet and the dinner (which included a lovely salad buffet, choices of soup and and main course, and dessert) were great. It's not haute-cuisine but it's good honest fare. The staff are very friendly and super-efficient.
The Alpenhof is actually a farm so don't expect the last word in luxury of the soft fluffy towel variety. The bedrooms are small (some are very small) and have small bathrooms but they're fine - how much time will you spend there anyway? And the showers are good and powerful. There's also a steam room, sauna and relaxation area on the bottom floor, use of which is free for guests, as well as an area to leave your skis and ski boots The working language is obviously German but English is spoken so there were no problems.
The location is lovely and the Alpenhof is surrounded by snowy mountains. We were there on New Year's Eve and it made a beautiful setting to ring in the new decade. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Alpenhof and would happily recommend it.
