The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is next to the ski piste, which is great cause you can ski directly from the hotel. The rooms are small but there is a large comfy room which you can relax in above the bar. Another issue is that in certain periods you cannot drive your car up so you... More

In summer the Lodge it's easy accessible by car, but in winter the road up the hill is only partially open to traffic because of ski slope and lift crossings,... More

Dear 2abc, thank your so much for your recent visit and writing this very detailed review and description about the lodge. Our very unique location right on the ski slopes is fantastic and makes the way up to the lodge an adventure itself: on the skidoo when the ski lifts are open. We hope you enjoyed it!

We've stayed at Saanewald Lodge (and it's previous incarnation as Z-Loft) on a number of occassions over the last 5 or 6 years. And we've kept going back because of the ski in-ski out location on the slopes, and because we've always enjoyed our stay. We returned after 2 years this last weekend, and found that yet again the staff... More

Our satnav gave up but eventually we found the lodge up on the mountain. Very laid back and hip with nice retro touches. They did a great job of turning a genuine sixties venue into a hip retro place. The lodge is geared more towards winter than summer guests, it appears. During our 3-night stay just two rooms were occupied,... More
