Just spent a week skiing with my wife at this fabulous hotel in the wonderful village of Lech in Vorarlberg, Austria. We decided on this particular hotel based on reviews from tripadvisor and we were definitely not dissapointed.
The hotel has great facilities with a super swimming pool and spa area although we did think that it would be better to have a seperate jacuzzi in the spa area as well as the one at the end of the swimming pool....but only a personal prefference.
We chose the half board option including a 5 course meal every day with a choice of 3 main courses, one always being vegetarian. Breakfast was from the buffet with everything you could wish for including the most tasty scrambled eggs and ommelettes I have ever tasted. There were also so many varietys of bread freshly baked in the adjoining bakery ....dont visit if you are concerned about your weight , the cakes and pastries are irresistable.
There is a very cosy bar area with a fire although this is gas rather than the more traditional wood burning types found in many hotels.
The bedrooms are very comfortable with good sized beds and plenty of storage space for a complete wardrobe of ski wear including a cupboard to store ski bags and cases. The rooms were sometimes a little warm during the night even with the window open and the radiators turned off . The ski storage area was also very well laid out with plenty of heated boot pegs and a very good system for holding skis.
Like others who have reviewed this hotel, we were a little concerned about the position relative to the ski lifts but its only a fairly short walk to the main lift area. The walk to the Oberlech cable car at the other end of the village however is a little longer for any nervous beginner wishing to start on the relatively easier slopes above Lech.
The Hotel is however in a quiet area sufficeintly far (but not too far) from the Apre-ski bars.
All in all we would thoroughly recommend this hotel for a skiing holiday in Austria..........
