look, at the end of the day you get what you pay for - and we all know skiing holidays are extremely expensive. the enzian is a more budget friendly hotel but it certainly doesn't deserve such negative reviews that have been written.
the owner, diane, is incredibly helpful and all the staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. it is a family run business and this shines through in the relaxed atmosphere. diane was taking her beautiful dog, sophie, for a walk and was kind enough to invite us (and two staff members) along to show us some of the sights etc.
the rooms are fine, they are clean and comfortable and plenty warm enough. two small problems were that the walls are not the thickest but i still slept well. it is not a particularly big problem as they don't accommodate loud, party-type groups. also, the shower was very temperamental and i would highly suggest trying to take your shower at a not-so-peak time (ie not between 5 and 7 pm).
the hotel is a short 5 - 10 (in ski boots!) minute walk from the popular bourke street and bars/restaurants. the restaurant at enzian was fabulous - we ate there both nights and the food was fantastic and reasonably priced.
anyway, take all reviews with a pinch of salt - negative reviewers should go elsewhere and pay top $ for a 5 star hotel.
