We stayed in this hotel for the first time in Jan 2012, indeed it was our first visit to Lech ski resort and we booked through Crystalski choosing half board accommodation. We were met at reception by the charming owner Marion Gafgo and her staff who quickly sorted us out with the keys to our rooms. We were a party of seven adults so had booked 3 double rooms and a single.Our room(20) was just as expected, bright, spotless and spacious and quiet. The bathroom was spotless and well lit. Little disappointed that we did not have a flat screen TV, just an old bulky one but you know what?.... it doesn't really matter...In fact I liked that the TV was situated in the little 'lounge' area of the room as it meant that hubby could watch sport with the sound turned down while I could read my book in bed at night. I had a look at our friends double room on floor 1 and it was a mirror image of ours. Our single friend had a room on the second floor down the corridor from us which was a good size for a single room again spotless and new with 2 big windows, one with a view of the piste and the other of the surrounding mountains. It overlooked the road to the Flexen Pass but he reported that he was never disturbed by traffic at night due to the triple glazing and insulation. The third double room was in the older part of the hotel and it had a wonderful view of the piste from the window, a bright pristine, if small bathroom. This room had a sloping , beamed ceiling and a bed separated from the sitting area by a built-in double wardrobe. Our friends felt that this made the room feel small and that thewood- workmanship in general was not of a high standard.
For all our meals we had a lovely table from which we could see all the other guests' tables and their comings and goings which is always interesting on hols.
Buffet breakfast was plentiful and delicious but I disliked the extra charge for hot food such as scrambled eggs etc!...a bit unusual in a four star hotel in Austria.
Evening meals were of the five course variety and in the main every item offered was delicious, varied and freshly cooked... memorable main courses included the lamb cutlets, pink, oozing with flavour and with no extra fat attached.I thoroughly enjoyed the fish which was served on two evenings. If I were to be picky I would have to say that I was disappointed with the dessert each evening which, I felt, was just an after thought by the chef... I craved some nice home made ice-cream,lemon mousse, something wickedly chocolaty etc. Groovey (Gruner vetlinger)white wine was price from 28E...reds similiarly priced....We tended to either have a drink in one of our rooms for pre-dinner drinkies or a glass of prosecco in the small bar area before dinner and found the staff courteous, polite and quite happy to help us in any way and to have a little chat with us when appropriate which showed their professionalism and signified to us that this was a happy place in which to work, thanks to the good management of Marion Gafgo, the owner.
We felt that the bar area was too small for us to return to for apres ski, choosing instead the neighbouring hotel lounges or outdoor bars close to the town centre for a beer or two.
We didn't bother with the small spa area this holiday, opting instead for a leisurely soak in the bath each evening, so I cannot comment on the facilities.
All in all I would return to Hotel Elisabeth if I were to return to Lech.
