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.
