Having booked a last minute ski holiday where our accommodation was allocated upon arrival, we were extremely pleased to be placed in this hotel. Here are our thoughts:
Location: Great for easy access to the slopes, and there is a conveniant ski hire shop nearby. Only problem with the 'ski in ski out' aspect of the hotel - you've got to be a competant skiier as the only route in without too much walking is a black run. The bus stop into town is virtually opposite the hotel, which is great although services stop after 6.30pm meaning a taxi is the only option for getting back to the hotel after a night on the tiles.
Food / Drink: We found the food to be plentiful and of excellent quality. Our last night 'gala' meal was fabulous, although the only downer was the price of wine and water. At 6euros for a bottle of water, we thought this was a complete rip off and worked out that the beer at the hotel was the cheaper option! Wine was generally poor quality and tasteless, and expensive for what it was.
Service / facilities: Excellent service all round with some helpful and polite staff. Nice pool and sauna/spa facilities, and clean communal areas where you can relax. The bar area was small but cosy, and again - beer the best option.
Rooms: Rather basic and the decor in the bathrooms was typically Austrian - shame they can't be updated. Towels and bedlinen were rather 'thin' but overall the room was tidy and well presented.
Overall, an excellent hotel but once best for families rather than groups of friends looking to have a great apres ski life in Zell. Pricey but worthwhile if you like a lot of good food and are happy to drink beer and nothing else. We'd certainly come again!!!
