We travelled as a group of 6 ages 30 to 40 for our first time to Austria. We were impressed. Hotel was very traditional but gave it a lovely charm, rooms were clean, shower and bath and beds very comfortable, we were on the second floor and never heard the church bells? We had the same table in the restaurant each night for breakfast and evening meal which was great as it made it easy for everyone to meet up. Breakfast had a wide selection of meats/cheeses, cereals, fruit, yoghurts, breads, toast and egg and bacon every morning so had plenty of energy for the day ahead. Evening meal was usually 5 courses served to the table or some nights themed night style buffet but excellent quality, always a choice of menu and always a vegetarian option, with friendly service was always an enjoyable start to the evening. Apres Ski was lively Bruck and Stein being a traditional drinking stop and good fun for dancing and taking in the atmosphere, lots of bars and variety of places to go. Prices of drinks were around 3.50euros for a pint of weiss beer which made the resort much more favourable and considerably cheaper than france last year.
Hotel was in a great location, easy for walking anywhere in town, supermarket just over the road and bus stop right outside hotel, which stopped about every 15mins to take you to the gondolas, instead of getting the Penken (queues were unbelievable) we got the Horbergbahn which was a couple of minutes away on the free bus and really quiet and easy to get straight to top of mountain and back down.
We had day trips to Kaltenbach which we would recommend it was only 15minutes away and beautiful supposedly a favourite of the locals (we book this through our rep and had a guided tour and bus about 15euro but was worth it) also you can use your lift pass to get free bus to the glacier about 30mins away at the train station which is a short walk from the hotel.
You have to pay for a wifi pass that you can only use on one device but if you go downstairs in the hotel the casino has free wifi, so would recommend having a drink and using wifi in there.
The only downside most places smoke inside in Austria (unless it is an eating area) which is strange as we are not use to this in England, but overall I would highly recommend this resort and hotel and I think we will all return to Austria again next year.
We didn't use the sauna area as there is a no swimwear rule and we were travelling in a mixed group, but this is a extra small charge if you want to use this.
