This hotel could not have been better. Reception staff could not have been more helpful. Meals were superb, salads every evening and additional courses were exquisitely presented. Breakfasts had endless choices. Rooms were spacious and warm. The icing on the cake was swimming pool, sauna and steam room. Ski bus pick up was 20 m from front of hotel.
Most people on the tour stayed in Hotel Alpina but our room was in Hotel Tauerblick. Our accommodation was ok but the toilet / shower room was so small that the washbasin was in the living room. We had to trek to Hotel Alpina for breakfast and dinner. The breakfast was ok but we had been spoilt at the stopover hotel which also had hash browns, sausages and beans. At dinner the emphasis was on quality rather than quantity and very tasty! Some people were not allocated rooms they had asked for like some people who had asked for single beds were given double beds. Wi Fi in room was good There was entertainment on one night but it was nothing special. There was street entertainment in town one night too and this was better quality and attracted quite a crowd! Our package included some drinks but the choice was some what rigid – wine, beer or soft drink. The excursions were generally good with the exception of the optional trip to Berchesgaden and Konigsee Lake. Some people chose to visit Eagles Nest a ‘haunt’ of Adolf Hitler. The journey to Eagles Nest is so complex that it proved impossible for them to get there and back in 3 hours so the rest of the trip went to the Lake and the coach returned for them later so they did not see the very picturesque lake. I suspect they may have been disappointed with Eagles Nest because there’s nothing there except the view and food and drink facilities. Even the old study is used as a storage room! We struggled to ‘kill’ 3 hours in Berchesgarden. Wish we’d had another day in Badhofgastein instead because it’s lovely and so were the staff at the hotel.…
Stayed at the Hotel Alpina for five days, it was very nice....good food and great service. Our table waiter (Damienos) was excellent...would deffo reccomend it!!....great facilities and excellent location....Austria is beautiful and the scenery is fantastic 👍
Bedrooms spotless, cleaned daily with towels replaced each day. Interiors dated. Bathroom small but a great shower. Downside had to walk 20 metres down the road for breakfast,dinner and swimming pool in main hotel Alpina. 3 min walk to ski bus from ski room. Upside it was worth the walk outside for delicious breakfast and dinner. Pool was a real treat after a days skiing. Staff very customer orientated. Reception staff and manager were excellent. Overall on departure commented it was a very well run hotel.
I found my room clean and practical, it was cleaned on a daily basis. Meals and other facilities were provided by Hotel Alpina a short distance away. I found the Breakfast to be more than adequate and evening meals well presented with decent variety. I got the impression they made an effort. Service was about as good as it gets, efficient and quick.
