A great hotel. Superb service from the first welcome from Frau Jennifer (in charge of the front desk), to the friendliness and helpfulness of all staff, especially also the bar staff and the restaurant ladies and gentlemen. Spacious room with sitting area and balcony for me and my son. Ten minute walk from the ski lift. Very efficient ski equipment service from the major rental place near the lift (just across the road from the lifts). Also great folk at the ski equipment deposit just to the right - look out for the charming fac totum guy with the moustache - he's such a sweety, helping everyone - try your pigeon German out on him - a few words make all the difference. Make sure you get off the slopes in time to get your kit back in before 5pm - they close right on the dot. Food at the hotel is good, but not haute quisine. If you ask for a good glass of wine at the bar you will get just that - not excessively expensive and of high quality. When you get off the slopes and toddle back before five o'clock, there is a useful snack waiting for you in the bar area - no extra charge! Rooms very quiet at night - but party folk can go out to the centre (5 mins) for extra fun. Lovely indoor swimming pool. Fly to Salzburg or Munich, and then take the wundershoenes Deutschebahn - first class is really inexpensive. 3hrs from Munich or 1.5hrs from Salzburg. We're going back. It's great. The various ski resorts are all interconnected so you can ski from one to another.
