Incredibly family-friendly (they have a playground in the backyard with a swingset, trampoline, etc.). You feel very welcome with kids. The breakfast is delicious, with homemade jam, etc. It's a very warm, welcoming place. And amazing value for the price. Fun hikes and kids' play area in the summer - with bumper boats, mini cars, etc. Skiing right at your... More

1 stayed here for a full week last week, with a group of 16 friends, and what a fantastic week it was! This isn't some fancy 4 or 5 star hotel, this is an honest, family run Pension with great rooms, wonderful food and a really friendly atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts, Robert & Eva, and... More

I stayed here for four days and would definitely stay again. It's a lovely, family run hotel. The food is excellent and the family can't do enough for you and were good enough to serve our dinner late one evening after we'd come back from the local bar. The hotel is spotlessly clean and nice and close to the ski... More

Stayed as a family at the Forsthof hotel for a family Ski holiday over the Christmas break. The family run hotel were very welcoming, the rooms were kept clean and the evening meals were of a high standard. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

The family-run guesthouse Forsthof is situated yards from the ski slopes in Alpendorf. Unlike the frillier hotels nearby, the Forsthof feels genuinely warm and welcoming, with a traditional feel and generous but homely rooms. Home cooked food is presented beautifully and pride is taken in personal service. I recommended this place to my well travelled Grandad and he refuses to... More

This was a wonderfully friendly and cosy hotel. The bedrooms and bathrooms were immaculately clean and furnished to a very high standard. The manager, Eva, was always most obliging and nothing was too much trouble for her. Standard of food was very high. I really enjoyed staying there and would gladly return.

I stayed at the Forsthof for 4 days during Autumn hiking season (Sept-Oct). It is located at Alpendorf, next to the city of Sankt Johann (5 minutes drive)... The hosts, Rupitch family, are lovely! The pension is clean, breakfast is full and hotels nearby offer delicous dinners... The room was big and new...with amazing view from the balcony. All together,... More

Excellent clean and friendly Pension. Food was good and plenty of it - staff were all friendly. About 300m walk down to Gondola if there are members of your party who do not ski but if you can ski then you can access the slopes about 50m away. Definitely visit again.
