Pension Hohenfels
Ranked #3 of 26 Obergurgl B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 8, 2013

As a family we have been going to Obergurgl for the last 10 years and absolutely love the resort. We stayed in the Hochfirst for our first visit but found the rather stuffy atmosphere not to our liking. We then tried the Madeleine and stayed there four times because of the quality of the food, however the rooms are a disappointment and the location is not ideal. We 'found' Hohenfels 5 years ago and absolutely love it. This family run bed and breakfast is in a perfect location 2 minutes walk from the Festkogel gondola and opposite a ski hire shop and supermarket. The rooms are spacious and clean and accomodation cannot be faulted. Elizabeth and her family have made my family feel like we are part of theirs.

Room Tip: Make certain to ask for a room with a balcony as the rooms at the back face a cliff!

We have been spending Christmas and New year at the Hohenfels for the last 5 years, and staying in Obergurgl for 10 years.We love the Hohenfels for its family friendly atmosphere, it feels as though you are part of the family. We meet the same guests year on year from all over Europe we have seen children grow up and look forward to seeing them every year. We are a couple with no children. The bar run by Gerald is welcoming and a super meeting place after skiing, Gerald makes the best homemade Gluwien and special Hot chocolate for the children.
Elizabeth is a beautiful hostess and throughout the stay we will bump into her Mother, Father, and Brother at some stage they are all l key to the running of the business and so friendly. The rooms are spotless the Breakfast has got everything you need for a hard days Skiing.It really is faultless.Paradise

We had spotted this hotel/pension and it's proximity to the Festkogel gondala last year when we visited Obergurgl and thought we would try it. We weren't disappointed. From the moment we arrived we were made extremely welcome. Elizabeth was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were clean and nicely furnished. We had a front facing corner room with a view of the lifts and nursery slope. The hotel was lovely and quiet. Breakfast was a cold buffet but it was sufficient for our needs and better than making our own in an apartment. It was nice having the bar to sit in as well when we returned from dinner in the evening. Would definitely go back

Stayed here just before Christmas 2011 have to say i could not fault the Hotel. The staff were all really friendly and helpful and made you feel so welcome. All the rooms bar lounge etc were spotlessly clean and accommodating. The breakfast was buffet style with plenty of choice The location of the Hotel is literally two minutes walk from the ski lift. I was with a group of seven others and they all remarked at just how nice Hohenfels was . If you are planning a trip to Obergurgl and want a top class B&B I would definitely recommend Hohenfels just perfect for a skiing break !!!

My wife, teenage kids and I stayed at the Hohenfels over New Year 2010/11. We had chosen it primarily because we wanted B&B rather than formal hotel dining and on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews. Our expectations were surpassed in every way: all members of staff were unfailingly helpful and cheerful; the location is terrific (less than 5 minutes in ski gear from ski school and only 100m from the Festkoglbahn gondola, 50m from a supermarket and 20m from ski hire) whilst quiet; the bar on the ground floor is welcoming and great value; rooms were spacious and immaculately clean (we had rooms at the rear but did not find them dark or oppressive) and there was even the surprise of cable tv with Sky Sports and all main UK channels. Separate ski and (heated) boot rooms made for easy ins and outs.

Both our rooms had baths with overhead showers and plenty of towels. There is a sauna (untried). Continental breakfasts were good and plentiful. Within five minutes walk there are a number of good restaurants - we enjoyed Salt & Pepper, Krumpn's Stadl and Belmonte Pizzeria in particular, whilst lunch in the Alpenaussicht (great sun deck) was quick and easy only 2 minutes from ski school. Staff were more than happy to make recommendations and reservations.

All in all, highly recommended.

I have been going to Obergurgl and I have tried several of the hotels in the village and can say without a shadow of a doubt that Pension Hohenfels is the best I have stayed in. Elizabeth and her team are marvellously welcoming and accomodating, nothing is too much trouble for them. The hotel is in an excellent position directly opposite Lohmanns ski hire (discounted for residents of the Hohenfels) and 50 yards from the gondola. The rooms on the front elevation are very light and airy (although a bit dated), but the rooms at the back face directly into a cliff 2 feet outside the window! Make certain that you get a room with a balcony! I cannot recommend this hotel enough, not only for the benefits I have already listed, but also because it is such good value for money.
