Reviewed March 31, 2007

We have just returned from a ski week at this lovely hotel, and agree with all of the comments about its good quality, convenience and friendliness.

I want to review the wellness rooms, open from 3pm to 7pm. Those of us not used to saunas may find them daunting, but there is no need. They provide a calming way to spend an hour or more after a strenuous day of skiing.

After our first day's skiing, we asked for complimentary bathrobes at reception, and kept these throughout our stay. First, we would shower in our room, put the robes on with nothing underneath, and then head down the stairs or lift (wearing flip-flops) to the wellness rooms.

You find the wellness through one of the labelled doors one floor down from reception. There are three consecutive areas separated by glass doors.

You pick up a towel in the first one, but it also has its own shower. You may be able to shower here instead of in your room, but we saw no one doing this.

The second area has showers, sauna, steam room, foot spa and coin-operated whirlpool. There's also a place to make a mug of herbal tea, and sit down.

The first thing most people do is hang up their robe outside the sauna and go in with their towel. Either, place your flip-flops outside the sauna, or on the floor inside. It's important not to let your skin touch the wooden benches (including your feet), so drape your towel appropriately, and sit down, or lie down. The temperature is about 90 °C, and 15 minutes will be long enough. You can use the egg timer on the wall if someone else hasn't started it. Invariably someone will ask to add scoops of water to the fire. You will feel such a wimp if you say no, and it will quickly appear much hotter. If they stand up and swing their towel around their head, you may find it stifling and prefer the lower bench. Anyway, this ritual always gets a conversation going, and you quickly forget you’re naked in mixed company!

After cooling, and rinsing off the sweat, we would use the steam bath. This is a room with tiled seats rather than benches (and very steamy air), but the procedure is similar.

After yet another rinse and dry, we sometimes used the foot spa. We never tried the whirlpool, and only once saw a couple using it.

After the treatments, and drying ourselves, we would make a cup of tea. Although I think there are no rules, it seems appropriate to wrap your towel around you, or put on your gown for this. If still hot, I would delay covering up a little. You can drink the tea on the seats provided, or take it into the third area.

The third area is for relaxing, and has recliners, mood lighting and gentle music. It's nice to sit down to drink tea before reclining to rest. Although I think it's meant to be a quiet area, it seems to be OK to speak for some of the time. Everyone wears their robes on the recliners, and puts their towels behind their heads when lying back.

When you are completely rested, drop your towel into one of the receptacles provided. The hotel provides staff to come in from time to time to empty these and tidy up. You may suddenly find it's close to 7pm, and you're rather later for dinner than you intended!

Just had a week at this hotel. Lovely hotel, with nice sun terrace. quiet location. Room was quite big, with a balcony and added bonus was a really deep bath, to soak away those aching limbs after a days skiing.
Food in the evening was really nice, about 5 courses. Staff very nice, service was excellent. Lovely ambience in the hotel as well. Had an austrian night on the Tuesday which featured a trio and some delicious austrian cuisine, and a gala meal on the last evening. There is a small bar area, and a small wellness centre (no pool). Opposite the hotel is a lift which takes you down into a tunnel, and from there onto a moving walkway which takes you direct to the Fimba gondola.
Would recommend this hotel.

This hotel is in a great location. It's located just a few metres from the Dorftunnel which takes you straight to the Fimbabahn, plus you can ski back to within about 50 metres of the hotel on Run 1.

The rooms we were allocated on the third floor were well decorated and of a good size, good storage, along with a balcony large enough to enjoy a well earned drink on.

The boot/ski storage room was a good size, very civilsed with heated racks and plenty of them.

Food was very good with a wide choice of main meals, usually with fish, vegetarian and meat options. Other courses included a salad bar, soup, dessert and cheese. There was a fondue night and a lovely gala dinner. The quality and choice was also replicated at breakfast. The only issue we had was that breakfast didn't start until 8am and it wasn't quite early enough to ensure we got the first lifts up in the morning.

Overall, the staff were firendly and the service was very good.

The apres ski in Ischgl more than lived up to it's reputation! Ski boot table dancing is widely available and the Kitzloch was great for a 'traditional' atmosphere.

The lift network is top notch with virtually all modern high speed chairs along with 3 gondolas from town. The pistes were well groomed and in general the skiing area is excellent in terms of length of pistes and intermediate terrain.

Stayed for a week's skiing holiday in the Hotel Jagerhof 13-20 Jan 2007.
The hotel itself is really very nice and ideally positioned directly above the "Dorftunnel", opposite the midpoint lift, which provides an underground moving walkway between the village and the Fimbabahn gondola.

Our room (101) was a reasonable size with a good bath/shower room and a balcony. The room was cleaned daily.
The hotel has a very pleasant "Wellness" centre in the basement area, which includes a sauna, a steamroom and a chillout room. Nudity is compulsory, but you can hide behind a well placed towel!!

The main dining area is well laid out with a buffet style breakfast with plenty of hot and cold options. Dinner comprised 5 courses (starter/soup/salad/main/dessert) with normally 4 choices of main course. The food was of a high standard and well presented, the staff were very pleasant and usually dressed in traditional Austrian attire.
There is a small bar area opposite the reception which is normally open until around midnight.

As far as the skiing went Ischgl is of a similar standard to St Anton but smaller. Quite a high proportion of the runs are steeper than those normally found in Austria and during the time we were there the pistes were hard packed and slick and in need of fresh snow. Having said that a lot of other resorts were on the verge of closing due to lack of snow so we were lucky to be able to ski all week in Ischgl. The resort is linked with the duty free Swiss town of Samnaun. The best restaurant on the mountain was located on the long red 80 into Samnaun and is well worth a visit for a leisurely lunch.

The après ski in Ischgl is VERY German! Lots of bass thumping euro pop, large amounts of beer, much bopping up and down and sweat! I really am getting old!! So old in fact that I couldn’t be bothered to try any of the 3 table/lap dance clubs in the town, mainly because they don't open until 10:30pm, they charge to get in (10 euros) and the drinks are very expensive.

The Golden Eagle Pub is the only real "Pub" in town and it is NOT Irish, but it does sell a nice pint of Guinness. Everybody in Ischgl seems to smoke!

Overall, we had a good week's skiing despite some difficult conditions, we would certainly use the Hotel Jagerhof again if we ever returned to Ischgl, but we are more likely to go back to St Anton, which has more ski area, is less expensive and as more "English" après.
