“A hidden gem in Obertauern”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

We stayed at Hotel Alpenland for a fantastic week of skiing in February 2014.

Location-wise it's pretty hard to beat - the hotel is at the top of a small hill behind the Pernerlift (small practice slope 17a), so in a morning it is just a minutes walk down the road, (or indeed some people skied down the road!), pop on your skis and a gentle glide to the Zentralbahn. To return at the end of the day you end up with a very short walk back up the hill, but this just took a couple of minutes and was not too taxing - even with 2 tired kids in tow! A short walk down the hill has you right in the centre of town for the shops, supermarkets and restaurants so it really is very handy, but is set back enough that you don't get any noise at night.

The owners of the hotel are very friendly and helpful, (and their English is very good luckily as our German is not great!). We sorted our room with no hassles via email and everything was just as promised. We booked a "hotel apartment" room because we were travelling with kids and the separate bedroom with door was a godsend as it meant that we could put the kids to bed and stay up later ourselves. The room was very spacious, comfortable and was kept in immaculate condition throughout our stay. The room had a safe, fridge and TVs in both the living area and the bedroom - everything that you could need. We really enjoyed the food in the hotel and there was always plenty of it. There was a good varied menu throughout the week and the waiting staff were truly excellent - we really felt cared for. There is also a free wellness area which looked very nice but we didn't use so can't really comment further upon. The boot room is small but has everything that you need. During the half term days it did get a little busy in there, but prior to half term it was always lovely and quiet in the boot room.

Overall I would highly recommend this hotel. For value for money and location I think it's pretty hard to beat. If we came back to Obertauern we would definitely consider the Alpenland again.

I stayed only a few days with my son for a short skiing trip in Obertauern 16-18.2.2012. The hotel was in our opinion excellent, it all started with an opening welcome speech and glass of sekt which made you feel welcome. In the evening after dinner the owner asked kindly if we would like ski passes to be organized for the morning that was very nice as it saved us a lot of time in the morning. They also organized free of charge half a day ski guide that showed you the Obertauern ski area, gave good advice and really speeded up figuring out all the important. Dinner we ahd included which was also very good with many courses. Spa with different saunas was nice after skiing and the location is good from the pistes and also a stones throw from the central restaurants and bars. I definitely would return to this place if in Obertauern again - which was also a nice, easy skiing area and in a compact size but enough for a week.

Room Tip: This is not a noisy hotel as it is about 200m away from the main street so all rooms are fine for go...

Stayed here with my husband for the first time just now in January. We absolutely loved everything about the hotel. The staff were friendly and professional, the food was awesome, the room large, comfortable and clean, and the location to skiing slopes was unbeatable. Free access to steam bath and sauna in the hotel, free WiFi although not great reception in our room, but we just went to the bar to do internet work. Good excuse for a drink....
We own and operate our own hotel, so we know how hard it is to run a smooth operation. The Bernhofer family and their team is doing a brilliant job!

Excellent food in great value relaxed friendly hotel. Fantastic service from the staff who were helpful throughout. We had some dietary restrictions and they were very flexible about this. In general the meals were of a very high standard. Would go again.

Stayed there for 7 nights with family and a small child and was taken care of. Rooms were both large and a free cot for my 1 year old was provided. Rooms were typically Austrian and very clean.

Food was excellent. 5 courses every night and decent quality ( had half board). Bar area was nice as well.

Hotel owners very nice too. When I couldn't get my car up the hill in the snow he came down in the village with me and drove it up with me. Service from all staff excellent and all spoke good English and could nt do enough for you.

Would return

I contacted this hotel by email to check availability. They replied with an offer and I replied immediately with my reservation. After several reminder emails from me, I still did not receive the final confirmation. I decided to call. Their reply was: "Sorry, in the mean time somebody else booked your rooms". Well, this is what I call very bad service.
