We stayed with a large group of friends over the Christmas New Year period in 2011/12 including friends from Australia and the UK, totalling 17 including 6 children under 10.
It's a wonderful hotel with a great location close to the lifts. When we arrived we were quickly shown to our rooms and offered welcoming drinks. We stayed for 8 nights and ate our way through 6 course meals every night. The food was amazing and the family run style really added to the experience.
Christmas was fantastic in a traditional Austrian style including visits from the family owners and children who made great speeches both in German with an English interpretation by one of the sons (Florian) who was a great ambassador for the family. He also led us on a staff and guests ski day where they hosted us in their family ski cabin in the mountains for an excellent traditional Austrian lunch with schnapps and weissbier! We also attended the guest Christmas nativity play held in the snow and created by the staff volunteers and hosted by the family Wolf. Once again Florian did an excellent job on the interpretations, hosting and ladling out the gluhwein.
We met lots of people that had been coming back for over 20 years to Hinterglemm and the Wolf hotels. I would recommend this hotel it's a great place.
