“One of the three best Hotels in Zurs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Having visited Zurs for many years, I decided to stay at the three top hotels in Zurs for variety. Bentleys (Private Chalets,still the ultimate) was not an option as I was travelling solo. The Lorunser Hotel owned and run by The Jochum family was my first stop.Not having stayed there before I was extremely happy with the five star service and facilities. Zurs 2012 had the best snow for about 10 years, but the heavy snowfalls caused the Flexen Pass to close.The Lorunser somehow learnt I was on the Arlberg Express bus to Zurs and arranged a Hotel room at St Anton until the pass opened. Personal attention and care certainly typifies this Hotel.
The dining room provided excellent food with an inclusive 4 course lunch. However service in the dining room on occasions was possibly more 4 star, due to more eastern european staff rather than Austrian or German staff who are butler schooled. Made some hilarity to dinner.
Since Zurs is essentially an off piste skiing speciality place, night life is more about enjoying the five star facilities,a great dining room and mixing with the other international guests.
The Lorunser was a part of my best ever skiing holiday
Lorunser like most of the top hotels in Zurs are booked year to year with Lorunser having one of the highest rate of return guests.
To fully appreciate off piste skiing a private guide is essential as the Arlberg is high alpine.
The excellent ski school provides excellent tuition otherwise.

Room Tip: If single request a larger single room facing north sunny side.

The Loruenser Sport Hotel is far and away the best ski resort hotel we have ever stayed in. It has that combination of good location, good property, personal service and excellent food – all the necessary ingredients to make a success.

For those of you who don’t know, Zurs is one of a group of skiing towns in the Voralberg Land in Austria which, together with Lech, St Anton, St Christoph and a couple of other towns make up the Alberg skiing area. Zurs is higher than the rest and is also in the centre, making it relatively easy to ski both Lech and St Anton. However, Zurs is fairly quiet: if you want serious après ski night life, Lech is the spot.

On arrival, we were greeted warmly by one of the owners, a member of the Jokums family. Ski passes and a ski guide were organised without fuss. We had a large room with a substantial sitting area, separate dressing room, second toilet and separate entrance hall. The housekeeping staff are extraordinarily efficient: they see you leave for breakfast and immediately make up your room. They same happens with turn-down when you leave for dinner in the evening.

The rates are full or half board, so dinner is included. The hotel keeps an excellent table. If you can eat it, there is a five course dinner every night, consisting of entree, soup, main course, cheese and dessert, with there always being two choices for the mains. The food is very much five star, French/international (with some local Austrian specialties) and is of a very high standard indeed. The kitchen delivers variety: one night, entree was an Italian antipasto buffet, on another night, there was a huge dessert buffet, and on another a magnificent cheese buffet. The staff were extraordinarily helpful: with our wine waiter, we worked through a full range of Austrian fine wines while we were there.

The minute you arrive, all the staff seem to know you by name, despite the fact that the hotel accommodates 140 guests. You never have to sign a bill for anything. On one night, the owners host a cocktail party for the guests in the bar – a great opportunity to meet other guests.

Après ski at the Loruenser followed a pleasant pattern for us: first a visit to the day spa for a swim in the heated pool and a Jacuzzi (there are two) – two saunas and a steam room are also available. Then we’d read books and have a sleep before heading down for a drink at the bar at around 7.30 pm, followed by dinner at 8 or 8.30 pm.

The Loruenser is as good as it gets for this kind of hotel. It caters well to families as well as couples. It’s quiet, restful and very well organised. The only group which it doesn’t suit are young ones looking for a party.
