“Every year another surprise awaits you”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

This was our 5th time in a run at the Gartnerkofel and as usual we had a super time. The hotel is run efficiently and everything in the hotel up to standard. The staff are very friendly and always willing to help with any queries. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and every day cleaned thoroughly by cheerful cleaning staff.
After a full day of skiing the wellness area awaits you were you can really relax. There are different saunas so room for everybody and this year another new addition, Jäger Traum, which it really is. Old beams in the ceiling construction and various hunting trophies decorating the inside. Another sauna with exquisite taste.
The food in the evenings was excellent especially the fish buffet, just looking at the spread makes your mouth water. I wasn't so happy with the hot breakfast buffet this year as everything was very greasy, possibly the eastern countries influence, but it didn't bother me as there is so much choice in cold cuts, cheeses, fruit and cereals. I also found the afternoon snacks sometimes very greasy, but this is all a matter of taste.
So if you're thinking of going skiing to Nassfeld and looking for a hotel were you can ski directly from and to it, this is the place to go. You won't regret it.

We spent a week in this hotel and while it was a good stay all-in-all, the staff seemed to care little about service and the food was quite bad. The rooms are absolutely immaculate and every day the cleaning ladies were making sure that everything was tiedied up to the maximum... however the restaurant crew was not as friendly.

This was our 4th time at the Hotel Gartnerkofel in Sonnenalpe, Nassfeld and as usual it was great. Mr. and Mrs. Waldner do everything to make you feel at home, a great family atmosphere, and that is why they have so many regular guests. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and pamper your wishes. The rooms are well designed and have integrated sitting area with table, also a lovely comfy sofa. The bathrooms are also very spacey.
The food is excellent with lots of variety, sometimes theme buffet and other evenings a choice from 3 menus with, of course, starters, soup, salad buffet, desert and cheese. Wednesday is fish buffet and I have never seen such a spead, it’s a masterpiece, with a huge selection of fish including lobsters, king prawns, mussels, shrimps, salmon etc. etc. etc. There are also hot starters and for the main course different types of sea and lake fish. Do I make your mouth water? For those who don’t eat fish other dishes are offered. The arrangement you have when booking is for half board but every day a snack is laid on at lunch time. It varies from cold cuts, gulasch, Corinthian hot sausages, ‘Kaiser Schmarrn’ and always a salad buffet. One day Mr. Waldner cooks the traditional speciality of frigga with polenta and spare ribs outside on an open grill. Schnaps is on the house and there is of course super Apres Ski music.
The hotel has a great location as you are directly on the slopes. It is a large skiing area and offers slopes for everybody, from beginners to advanced skiers. A great place, we love it and have already booked again for next year.

We spent a ski week in Nassfeld in January at Gartnerkofel, hosted by Martin and Anneliese. This was our second stay at this hotel in two years: we came back because of the excellent service, warmth, and location - this is truly ski on, ski off accommodation.

Highlights for us this time around included the attentiveness and professionalism of the staff; the quality of the rooms/bathrooms; the 'wellness' centre - including great sauna; and most of all, the 'feel' of the Gartnerkofel. While the hotel is quite big, it retains a 'family' feeling - cultivated strongly by the owners Martin and Anneliese, who are charming, engaged hosts.

Fellow vegetarians: we would recommend talking to the owners in advance about vegetarian dinner options.

One final recommendation we'd make is to do one of the Gartnerkofel's snow shoe tours. The night tour, under a winter moon, was amazing - perhaps the highlight of our time in Nassfeld.

we stayed in Hotel Gartnerkofel during New year . The service is excellent and combined with the skislopes outside the window it is a perfect hotel for a family with small kids, where you sometimes need to make a pitstop during the day. the afternoon snack was welcome and then a dip into the pool, before a very nice dinner. Gartnerkofel comes highly recommended. - Fam. Sandberg

It is not a 4-Star hotel in our opinion. The food was not bad (but not to a 4-star standard), but not as good as you get in a Austria alm/restaurant (for instance). The direct surrounding of the hotel is asphalt, and not the mountain meadows you see on their website and marketing photos. With all-inclusive you expect to eat all day. But you could only eat between 08.00 - 10.00h and 18.00 - 20.00h. In between you can only get drinks, and around 16.00/16.30h some cakes/cookies. The coffee was horrible (and most of the times cold). The staff was friendly, the serving staff too friendly by take off the dishes before you finished eating.
