Excellent food, large modern room, spotless, helpful friendly staff, nice balcony with a good view of the lake, comfortable beds, great location etc etc etc... as everyone else has said, it really is excellent. Pool and hot tub were great, didnt use the sauna area downstairs as it was a 'nude' zone, as most saunas are abroad but had a quick look and it looked fab too. I checked in online whilst I was there for the return flight and they very kindly printed off our boarding passes (poster size at first - the receptonist and myself laughed about that for ages, they were bigger than me!!). They also gave us all a Tirolerhof Cookery book on check out, which was a lovely touch and the recipes look great!
There is only one minor critisim, there were no black out curtains which meant I was awake every morning at sunrise. Apparently the rooms in the older part have black out linings, so if you are a light sleeper request a room that does has them. I'm sure, had I have asked for some, they would have supplied a pair as nothing seemed to much trouble for the staff but as it was March, it didnt start getting light until just after 6am, so I didnt really mind that much but in the summer it would be a pain.
As for no tea and coffee making facilities in the room, very simple, buy a travel kettle! I go away all the time and 99% of hotels abroad dont supply them, so if you like a cup of tea first thing, its worth the £10.00 investment.
SKI SCHOOL TIP: If you are a 2nd week skier and you have booked Intersport Ski School, make sure you ask for Jackie Wolf as your ski instructor, she is fantastic. I learnt more in the 3 days I was in her class, than I did in a week at New Year in Cirvinia and a week last month in Verbier.
