Really enjoyed our weeks walking holiday in July, the hotel is enrolled in the selva active program which means guided walks, mountain bike tours and yoga classes were all free and were very good. Our room was beautiful - comfortable king size bed, full settee and large flat screen TV. The double basin in the bathroom was a welcome bonus too. The evening meals here were lovely with a wide selection of 4/5 courses every night. The staff were also really friendly and their english was good.
The hotel is well placed in the centre of town and 5 minute (uphill) walk to the main champinoi lift. Would definately come back again
My one niggle was the breakfasts, although adequate the quality really didn't match the evening meal

I didn't stay at this hotel by seven of my holiday companions did, and I joined them for the 4 course dinner each evening (which they got as part of their half board arrangement).

When you think of half board, you tend to think of uninspiring food but the choice here is very good and changes every day. I would thoroughly recommend it. The serving staff are also very good - and fun.

If you're staying at the hotel, I suggest you get a room at the back as it's noisy mornings and evenings.

Hotel Oswald is a good hotel with nice decor and location. Rooms are spasious and very clean. The food in the restaurant is delicious, so HalfBoard is a good choise. Oswald is offering all that you expect from one good SKI trip, and even more. One remark: we felt like we were missing a swiming pool....

We made a last-minute booking through the excellent Val Gardena website (www.valgardena.it), which provides up-to-date information on hotel availability. The hotel was first-rate. Our rooms were well-appointed. The Junior Suite Ciampinoi was spacious with two basins, a shower AND a bath, and an additional, separate WC. The single room for our daughter was also well-appointed, but quite small. The food was outstanding. At dinner there were always at least four courses, plus a salad buffet that changed each night. A vegetarian would not go hungry, but often there was not a vegetarian option in the menu. Breakfasts were good, with the best scrambled eggs we have had in a hotel breakfast buffet. There was always a choice of cakes, as well as breads, croissants, etc. plus a breakfast wine. Coffee was good, but the fruit juices were not. Service was very efficient, from the initial booking to the check out. Very good housekeeping. Friendly and competent waiters, who knew about the local wines (good list reasonably-priced, with the Endrizzi Lagrein and Cornell Lagrein both delicious). If there was something you didn't like on the menu, they were very accommodating about finding you an alternative.
There was a hotel shuttle to take you the ski-lift of your choice in the mornings, and the hotel was also right at the ski-bus. Not too far to walk to the main Ciampinoi lift, either.
The "wellness" centre was pleasant after a day on the slopes. It had a sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, relaxing room with ambient music, etc. Massage and beauty treatments were also available. Unlike some other big hotels in the area, there was no swimming pool.
Of course, the main winter attraction of Val Gardena is skiing, and we were very lucky with the weather - lots of fresh snow, sunshine, and cold. We weren't so lucky with the ski-rental shop recommended by the hotel, Dolomiti Adventures. The equipment we hired was of poor quality - the boots were so poor that after changing them, we decided we had to buy our daughter new boots (from another shop). They also failed to fit the new boots into the skis properly, which meant that they were hard to control. We didn't realise what the problem was until we took them to another ski rental shop to be checked. This failure may reflect slackness or general lack of care, but the standard of equipment suggests a deeper problem. Anyway, we would recommend that skiers wishing to rent go elsewhere.
Overall, we thought that we got excellent value for money at this hotel - and last week, we could take advantage of the "Supersun" deal, which offered 7 days for the price of 6, which extended to lift passes and ski rental.

Hotel Oswald has been completely refurbished to a very high standard. We stayed in a Junior Suite, which was extremely comfortable and very clean. Room serviced twice a day to a high standard.

The main downside to the hotel is the evening meal. Main complaints being:

1) Very limited choice especially for vegetarians, one evening only main course was a Grilled Beefsteak. Not much use if you do not eat red meat. I requested an omelette which was adequate - if a little on the small side.

2) Food that had obviously been cooked well in advance and let to be kept warm. Mushroom omlettes that looked and tasted like rubber, apple fritters which were not crisps and fresh.

For non-residents cost of the evening meal was 30 Euros - one would have thought it could have been of a higher standard.

Unfortunely, in Selva there is very limited choice of alternative restaurants, so it is not possible to dine elsewhere.

It is a pity that a hotel of this standard cannot prepare a menu with a greater choice and which is more edible.
