We were looking for a good value, traditional hotel close to the ski lift and found it in the Hotel Post. The staff were friendly, the rooms basic but clean, plenty of hot water for a bath at the end of the day. We were on the half-board accommodation and ate at 'our table' in the back dining room. There are several other comments on Trip Advisor on this aspect of the hotel, but accepting that we were going for the skiing, rather than haute cuisine and all the wellness aspects of higher-starred hotels, what we experienced was what we expected - perfectly acceptable and plenty good enough. The bar was of modest size and smoky, and it would have been nice to have a lounge to spend quiet time in.
The hotel is right in the middle of town, convenient for the shops and other bars. I counted 100 ski-boot clad steps from the hotel to where I could put my skis on, and the entrance to the nursery slopes and the first chair lift was within 50 more, so it's a genuine 100m away.
Our focus was on skiing, and without the option of cake at 4pm and a swim and sauna before a leisurely dinner, we skiied harder and longer than ever before. A competent intermediate will ski all of Westendorf in 2 days, but the easy link to the SkiWelt opens up many more runs.
Overall, the Hotel Post was a great base to ski from.
