We were a party of 6 friends staying in Kaltenbach for a long weekend on the slopes of Zillertal. The Explorer hotel suited us perfectly, located just a 5-minute walk from the main cable car. All the staff were super-friendly, the rooms were modern and clean, and the breakfast was superb. A bright and cheerful hotel with the added bonus of an in-house spa to relax in at the end of the day. The only disappointments were the absence of body soap and shampoo in the shower, and the lack of complimentary tea & coffee outside of breakfast time.

Our family of four stayed here over Christmas for four nights. Due to the size of the rooms we required two, which wasn’t a problem but they were on the bottom and top floors which was the only negative of our stay. However, the rooms were super clean and quite comfortable. And we able to open the windows to get some fresh winter air. The breakfast was very good, with a selection of cereals, fruits and yoghurt. There was also a station to cook eggs yourself - which the kids enjoyed doing. Boiled, scrambled, fried etc..... A large selection of breads and some pastries, however being Australian we missed not having a toaster to toast the bread. Tea and coffee machine and juices also provided. My husband enjoyed using the fitness room before breakfast each morning. We were able to store our bags in the ski lockers in reception before check in. Downstairs - in the same building - is a ski hire shop. We hired from here and the gear was great. They also offered a discount to hotel guests. There is also two large screens in the bar/restaurant area that are interactive and displays information for the day ahead. These were great as everyone would stand around checking out the weather and then share with each other the conditions they found on the various mountains the day before, share tips of where to ski etc etc. There was a great vibe! There is an Italian restaurant/bar next door which is great food and was also busy. The train stop is just across the road and we easily walked to the Hoch Zillertal lifts in ski boots. We were also able to walk to a number of other restaurants in town. We were very pleased with our stay here and would happily recommend the Explorer.
