About the Hotel:
We are in our 40's and I went with my two friends, partner and child who is 2 years old. When we arrived we were lucky as we had a minibus that dropped us off at the front door with our luggage. It is a steep hill and I found it very difficult walking up and down it in my own shoes let alone ski boots. When we were leaving the next customers had to bring their luggage up the hill, crazy. Not suitable for the older generation, unfit or disabled. The rooms were immaculate, traditional, spacious and warm. The atmosphere was as dead as a do do after dinner - people must have gone to bed at 9pm, we stayed playing cards in the bar part but at midnight the waiter asked us to go up to our room as he wanted to go home!. The food was gorgeous with a salad buffet everyday, although a little rich as they used a lot of sauces with cream in them but really I can't fault the quality, we all felt the same. The hosts are professional and very helpful, the owner Peter had our lift passes ready for us as I emailed him before we left the UK, they were £30 cheaper than prebooking with your travel agent.
About the skiing:
We left our ski boots and skis at the ski shop next to the chairlift in Wirl. They charge 1 euro a night and it well worth doing this if you are skiing in Galtur. The skiing itself is fairly limited but with brilliant snow. There are 3 chairlifts, 3 draglifts and one gondola. We went into Ischgl for 2 days only. It was just too busy and I was disappointed as the resort in Ischgl wasn't as traditional as I'd have liked, there were no huts, just massive purpose built restaurants, although OK stylish, oh and very expensive.
Childcare for non skiing children from 2 years old in Wirl/Galtur is fabulous and only cost Euro 49 for the week, lunch childcare is an extra Euro 5 per day. Ursula was great with our little one.
I would recommend this hotel, the resort is very quiet, no apres ski but you can ski all day albeit up and down the same runs without seeing many people.
When my son is old enough to learn to ski, it is a good place to go back to.
