“Incredible Old School 5-Star in the Austrian Alps”
Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

Would have likely rated 5-star, but as didn't book well in advance, couldn't get into the main hotel, so took the only option - the "post-man's house," as they call it. So, had to walk across the street to access the main hotel. Not a big deal, outside of that it was snowing ~ a foot a night. Additionally, the hotel, in season, only offers half board, with a full one week minimum (Sunday to Sunday). At ~ $1,000/night, along with ski & travel costs, this is the opposite of a budget arrangement. A good thing, should you have deep pockets, or a large group actually - as our special little house could sleep ten. No wonder that much of the guest list was European royalty & heads of state. With the tie req'd dinners, the level of clientele becomes even more so apparent, most returning annually & for good reason! Lech & neighboring Oberlech are like gingerbread winter wonderlands. The slopes have lovely "on- mountain" facilities to stop in for spiced wine, food & sunning. The entire town of Oberlech is "on the mountain," and only accessible via snowcat/lifts - very cool. You can also ski from Lech to Zurs (DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SNOWBOARD!) and there is especially fun alpine shushing (tiny seat sleds that run on small, but long trails that follow the ski runs) at the far side of town (in the direction toward Germany). A great trip. Wouldn't be complete without a visit to Innsbruck, particularly the old, walled town.

“Very beautiful Valentine's Day”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

We had dinner there on Valentine's Day and were very, very happy with everything. Very attentive, professional and nice service. My husband suffers from loads of allergies which they catered for beautifully. The ambiance and the food were both excellent. For us a pleasure and treat during every stay in the Oberlech/Lech area. Can only recommend it!

“Lovley Dining room”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

We had Dinner there one night of our Skiing Holidays, as the stube in Hotel Arlberg was booked out, but we didn't get disappointing from the entrance until the exit everything was excellent, the service was faultless and could have been in a gourmet restaurant but you didn't felt over pushed, we ordered soup as starter and I never been served soup in a silver bowl neither I had been a second portion for soup before, the main course was delicious as well, the sommieler recommended a very nice wine, and it was very reasonable priced, not like some other sommielers who just try to sell you the most expensive wine.
Highly recommend this place.

“Completely spoilt. Lots of little extra appetizers and some delicious sweets at the end of the meal. Wonderful service”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Beautiful cosy dining room. Very attentive service. One of us ordered the beef Austrian Style and didnt realise he would get a second portion that was as big as the first. Unfortunately he couldnt really do it justice.
