“Relaxing and comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

We stayed 6 nights in march 2012 at this hotel in Saalbach. We arrived late at night. My first impression was that they didn't expect us, they almoust laughed when we arrived and said we had a reservation. They wanted to see it, and I thought to myself "now we have to find somewhere else to stay".. Luckily it was all in my head, and our room on the third floor was waiting for us. The elevator was SMALL, and the receptionist stood in there with us with all of our gear to show us the room. The room was spacious and nicely decorated and gave a mountain-vacation-feeling combined with luxury. Flat screen TV, no A/C (but we had fresh air, so whats the point..). I slept like a baby, and the next morning we had the hotel breakfast, which was amazing. A chef made omelettes on demand, and there were good bread - and pastries. The hotel owner himself went around and checked that everything was in order, and wished everybody at the tables a good morning. After breakfast it was time for some serious skiing. The hotel had a locker room for skigear in the basement, and the boots were heated and ready for a day in the slopes. The hotel had an own shuttle service, and the guests can choose drop off points in the area Saalbach/Hinterglemm. So "ski - taxi out" - and also "ski in" - there were a blue transport slope who took us straight to the hotel. The sauna area was really relaxing and nice. I can also recommend the hotel dinner, we had a 5 course dinner for 29 euro per pax. A good price, and good value. The waitresses could possible use a english lession or two, but it was quite charming aswell - the lack of communication ;) All in all we had a wonderful stay.

Situated on the outskirts of Saalbach this hotel is perfect in every way. The staff, from the owners to the maids are all very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The cleanliness of hotel is immediately obvious. Our room was on the 2nd floor at the side, all rooms have a balcony and we had a nice view. Location means it’s quiet, ensuring a good night’s sleep, you can even request a herb pillow.
The dining facilities were excellent. A huge array of breakfast available. Cold meats, cheeses, salad, breads, cereals, fresh honeycombs, traditional hot options along with an omelette station, a facility to cook your own boiled eggs and a fresh juicer.
Afternoon tea, 4 - 5pm, plenty of cakes, bread, cheese, cold meats and always a hot option.
Dinner, 7 - 9pm, comprised of 5 courses (sometimes 7!) every night. The food was presented in a fabulous manner and tasted delicious.
A free mini bus shuttle service to the lift stations was greatly appreciated.
The Wellness area is exceptional. The pool can get busy from 4 – 6 and we were there during school holidays. But the sauna/steam and relaxing rooms are for 15 years +.
Complimentary robes, slippers and toiletries. Large towels, sheets changed every 4 days, chocolates on your pillow daily are all the great little finishing touches that make your stay complete.
And of course I mustn’t forget Alfred who provided the best massages, reflexology and various other treatments (additional charges)
We had a fabulous time and would recommend highly to friends and family.

This Hotel was everything I had hoped for.Lovely room with lots of space , very clean and comfortable.The five course meal every night was excellent and the waiters were so helpful and happy. A very pleasant shock we received when we got there , was that we each received 80 euros towards our bill at the end of the week !! Therefore we did try the wine list as well as the draft Zipfer ! Lovely week and will gladly return there again. The ski ing was good too , although a little slushy towards two o'clock, which we had expected.The Hotel shuttle bus took us to some of the lifts and the ski bus is only 4 minutes walk away. So if you want to treat yourselves then give Hotel Sonne a try you will not regret it

There were five of us in February 2012 visiting for a ski holiday. I had a single room on the third floor. It looked out onto the back and was very quiet. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The bathroom had only a shower but was perfectly satisfactory and there was hot water even at 1830 when all the guests were showering. One of my friends had a more modern room which looked even better but I was quite happy with mine. Housekeeping was good too. The room was clean and the sheets changed during the week. It was Carnival week in Bavaria, Austria and possibly the Netherlands too so the hotel was bursting with families. Nevertheless Camilla paid attention too us and helped us to get orientated. All the staff were extremely helpful and pleasant and made us feel very welcome. The food was very good and they managed to feed us well despite the numbers of people. The sommelier was excellent and made some very good suggestions for our drinking. I liked the bar area. The bus service to the slopes worked very well and we never had to wait long to get to the lift. I would recommend this hotel

We stayed here for a week in early February and had a great time. Our room was on the fourth floor and we were very pleased with it. It was large with a separate seating area with a couch and coffee table. It had been recently decorated to a high standard. The bathroom was large with two sinks and a walk in shower. On the downside we found the room very warm and had to have the window open at night (it was 20 below when we were there). Also, there was zero noise insulation from the room next door which was joined to ours by a locked door. We heard a bit too much from the couple next door on a few occasions... However, on the whole we were very pleased with it.
The food was good - a mixture of served courses and food from the buffet. No complaints at all. The wine is quite pricey.
Staff are all very friendly from the owners down and most have good English.
The spa area is very nice and new.
The hotel is a snort 10 minute walk from the main Express lift in Saalbach. We were boarding and frequently did it in boots - might not be so easy in ski boots. The hotel run a shuttle minibus to the lifts in the morning and collect in the evenings. We go the first bus at 8:30am every morning and there was never anyone else on it.
The apres ski in Saalbach is good. The hut at the top of the nursary slope above Saalbach is a must. The place is rammed and there is live music. In the village we liked the pub in the bottom of the old building round to the left of Hotel Post. Prices are pretty good - much much less than France. We were getting two cooked lunches, a large beer and a soft drink for about 24 euros.
Highly recommended.
