We went skiing in Feb 2014 in Hochfugen and chose this for our accommodation. We hadn't been to the area before and didn't realise it would take around half an hour in the car each day to get to the ski resort. There are free ski buses but as we have a 7 year old and lots of kit, we took our car.
This aside, the accommodation was lovely and exceptionally clean. We booked a superior apartment which was on the 3rd floor of the building. It looked as though it had been newly refurbished as every detail looked brand new. It had two spacious bedrooms with big comfortable beds, nice duvets and linen and an enormous shower room with sauna and separate toilet. Loads of storage space, spacious lounge with small but perfectly formed kitchen area. Another reviewer said they were cold but we would say the opposite and had to open the windows on occasion. You should note that although you are booking an apartment, you are still within the house so not entirely self-contained - but apparently this is fairly normal when it comes to ski accommodation. Breakfast is in the breakfast room on the ground floor and everyone goes through the main front door to get to their accommodation.
The hosts were mother and daughter and both very warm and welcoming. Neither could speak a word of English and our German is bad to say the least, but we somehow managed to have conversations with them. They're both very friendly and chatty!
Breakfast was an additional 8 euros pp pd. It was generous - lots of different breads, hams, cheese, boiled eggs, jams, yoghurt. Typical continental breakfast. Only issue is that my husband doesn't eat bread and no alternative option for him. On our last day we went to a nearby cafe for breakfast and it was basically the same but slightly more expensive, so I guess this is what they all eat for breakfast!
The restaurants in the town weren't great - we went to the pizza place which you have to cross a very busy road to get to - the cars go very fast and there are limited pavements and street lighting - not ideal. The pizzas were ok, but nothing special, good value for money. We also went to, as far as we could tell, the only other restaurant in the town, which was on the same side of the road and slightly further down. Very nice food but very slow. Other than that, we ate in Fugen the rest of the time where there are lots of options. Fugen is only about 5 minutes drive away.
We loved the accommodation and the hosts but would probably stay in Fugen if we came here again, so we were closer to the Hochfugen ski resort.
