Great service - you are made to feel right at home straight away, fantastic views of the Alps, plenty of good food (it was fun trying all the local specialities) and spacious, clean and functional rooms. The ski bus stops right outside the hotel and takes five minutes to Stubnerkogel. The drawback is that the bus back only goes once an hour in the afternoon and not at all in the evenings, so if you don't have your own car you are pretty stuck in the evenings. Taxi "downtown" costs about 10 Euros one way.
The ski system "Graukogel" which is right next door is pretty small (although nice) and only fills a couple of hours of skiing.
We missed the typical rustic Alpine-style decor. The hotel is not at all "cosy" in that sense and although there are a few rooms to lounge around in, they are small and not very inviting. The dining room is also pretty sterile and not nice to hang around in after dinner. I might also add that the beds are stone hard, so prepare your backs!
There is a small sauna area which fills its function, but not much more.
All in all, good value for money and the service puts a smile on your face.
