Really enjoyed our week at the Hotel Gotthard, and would not hesitate to return. The owners checked us in, took us to our rooms and were constantly around making sure guests were comfortable. All the staff were friendly, professional, the entire hotel was spotlessly clean, relaxed, warm and welcoming.

The pool area was beautiful, could get quite busy with children late afternoon, ours included, but it was half term, and all the children were pretty well behaved. Being a prude Scot, I avoided the nude sauna area, but there was another family sauna by the pool, which was lovely for tired legs.

The food was generally good, especially breakfast, with attentive waiting staff in charming traditional dress. The hotel has an exceptional in house bakery, I could have eaten the bread alone for a week and been happy. It was very civilised to come back from a hard days skiing, collapse on a sofa and indulge in a pretty cake or pastry. It was my husband’s birthday while we were there, a delicious chocolate cake was presented to us at breakfast, the children’s room had small robes, and these touches make you feel genuinely valued as guests. Our bedrooms were not overly luxurious, and could be very warm at night, despite the windows being open, but they were very clean and as you would expect from a solid four star hotel.

Good ski and boot room in basement, secure with heated boot racks. The hotel is located close to the lifts, five minutes walk at most, and convenient for ski hire shop, supermarket and ski school meet up area. Lech is very pretty, the snow was great, but with lots of sunshine, the runs home in the afternoon got a little sugary. The long, well groomed runs around Zurs were great for intermediates, the views stunning, with plentiful mountain restaurants serving good value food and drink. All mountain restaurants were clean, with great loos, staff often in traditional dress and menus available in English if required. We found the lift system to be modern & efficient, mainly six man chairs, some with heated seats. We waited about 15 mins for the main cable car, but once up, the runs were not busy and there was no further queuing. Skiers greatly outnumbered boarders, and Brits were in the minority. Zurs lacked atmosphere compared to the bustle of Lech. Take a ride on the lovely horse and carts located in the village centre, we booked half an hour for 55 euros, but should have done an hour.

All in all, a lovely, relaxing hotel, in a superb, traditional ski resort. We could not have been happier.

Our second trip to this hotel in 2 years, and it is basically the same as before in 2009. The owners run a good ship and the staff are just about the friendliest we've ever encountered anywhere. We felt on occasion that the front desk could be staffed by someone a bit more senior - the one occasion we really needed something doing we felt that consecutive receptionists were a little lightweight - very willing certainly, but perhaps not driven enough to really run at the problem. Our own fault perhaps - if we had asked to speak to Nicole (owner) I susepct she would have kicked into gear pretty fast. This is a minor grumble. The hotel is spotlessly clean, generously proportioned (for a ski resort), has a great breakfast buffet, pretty good set evening meal (though peppers in most dishes - the chef clearly loves them) and a beautiful swimming pool and sauna area. Walking to the lifts up from the underground ski locker room can be treacherous in the ice (harder coming down) but overall the hotel is well located. Coming back from interlinking Zurs the bus stops right outside, and the main lifts are only a 3 minute walk away. The rooms are unbelievably warm, even with your own radiator turned off, and this can be slightly too much at times. Overall we think this is a very good hotel. WiFi is a bit limited, but then if you're there for a holiday maybe that's okay. It's certainly very relaxed and, as stated before, extremely friendly.

This hotel is a good solid choice in Lech.
The food was of a good standard with plenty of choice both for dinner and at the breakfast buffet. Also really liked that spring water is always available and freely given.
The staff was mostly quite friendly and we were warmly welcomed.
Our room was spacious with a comfortable bed and a good up-to-date bathroom with excellent shower but the general decor of the room is a little dated.
The spa area was very good, a child free area which was quiet and tranquil.
It is about a 7 minute walk to the ski lift which wasn't a problem.
Good solid 4* and we would stay again.

An excellent hotel that fully desrves its good reputation & there is nothing we can really add to all the praise previous people have given the Gotthard.
Extremely friendly & efficient staff. Lovely spacious comfortable rooms.
Breakfast buffet has everthing you need for a hearty feast before hitting the slopes.
The 6 course dinner in the evening was both delicious & beautifully presented.
The pool & spa area were lovely for relaxing in at the end of the day.
The hotel will add your lift pass onto your room key card at no extra charge unlike the travel companies that charge 1.5% to use your credit card.
Ski hire directly over the road provides excellent service & equipment, again not surcharging for credit card use.
Only 2 mins from cable car, 5 mins from chairlift with the bus stop right outside the hotel, the location is great.
Once you have experianced the Gotthard it will be hard to think of going anywhere else.

my reviews of other hotels have been mixed-I am pretty critical of poor standards or service, but I can only agree with all the other great reviews on trip advisor.
The Gotthard is excellent value for money,comfortable and well run by the friendley staff and owners.The food is good at all times-we ate out one night at FUX in Lech but wished we had not as the food and service in the Gotthard was far better.
On the day we left for the airport,our bus was late and while we were waiting the owner Nicole, brought all 8 of us a glass of champagne to calm our nerves-this sums up the Gotthard-a great hotel in one of the worlds best ski resorts,
run by charming owners and friendly and efficient staff. I hope to return sooner rather than later

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..........
