We booked the hotel with Crystal and I went with my brother for a week's skiing. We would agree with many of the postings.............. the food and service are excellent.
It is difficult to convey the care taken in the preparation of the meals but not only was it exceptionally tasty but it looked very good. If the hotel was in the UK the daily 5 course dinner would be sold out and the cost many times more than we paid. The afternoon cakes and savoury open sandwiches are an absolute delight (but remember you pay for drinks).
The staff at the hotel were friendly, helpful and efficient. The owners were accommodating in the various requests we made and their attention to detail a lesson in how to run a hotel.
The room we stayed in was a largish family room with a sofa (put-you up), table and chairs and a balcony on two sides. The room is typical mid european from the 70's/80's, but had a separate loo and largish bathroom. It was comfortable, spotlessly clean and everything worked.
The ski area of Ischgl links over the mountain into Switzerland with runs to suit all standards, Galtur has a more limited selection so most days we went to Ischgl. The bus service was frequent, on time and at the end of March uncrowded. Snow conditions were good until about 1400hrs when they started to get a bit slushy but as we had started at about 0900hrs this was not a problem for us...........early Apres Ski.
The way from the main road to the hotel is steep but not that long; perhaps it is the case that if you go for a ski holiday and cannot walk uphill perhaps you are the sort of person that parks in the disabled parking space when you go the Gym! Skis and skiboots can be left at the InterSport shop (an arrangement with the hotel) next to the bus stop, which does make things easier. There is also a flatter, albeit longer way from the back of the hotel to the main village area and the bus stop.
Galtur is quiet and for the people that want to party a taxi ride away from Ischgl and its vibrant Apres Ski, however, the accommodation in Galtur appears far more affordable and better value for money.
Having been on an annual sking holiday for about 20 years now, and satying at mainly 4 star hotels, this ranks at the top for value and quality of food.
