This is the original hotel in obergurgl so has the best position in town. It is right next to 2 of the main lifts and slope back to town. The hotel itself is very comfortable and is just the right balance of being quite elegant but remaining friendly and personal. There are one or two hotels in town which are a bit more upmarket if that's important to you but really the edelweiss is a very nice hotel with great food and service which is perfect for a relaxing sking holiday. The rooms are a good size too. There is a good selection of food each day for breakfast and dinner and there is also a small separate buffet with things that appeal to children like spaghetti, schnitzel, chicken etc. It's a good hotel for children as can be seen at half term where almost every table is occupied by families. The hotel does not hike up the price at february half-term as much as some of the others in town which is very good considering they could fill the hotel 2 or 3 times over in that week. Getting a booking at that time is difficult though, we book 1 year in advance to get a booking that week. It has two swimming pools, one of which goes outside through a plastic door, this is quite unusual and fun swimming outside in a heated pool while snow falls on your head. We always drive from the UK and parking is a bit tricky as the hotel does not have a lot of space directly outside the hotel but it does have sufficient parking overall but you might have to park across the road. Overall I would consider it to be the best hotel in town taking all it's benefits into consideration. Even though some of the other hotels in town might be better in specific areas such as food, parking, or luxurious surroundings, none of them can match this hotel for an overall experience.

We have just returned from a wonderful sunny skiing holiday to Obergurgl. We chose to stay at the Edelweiss and what a good choice this was. The chair lift is literally one step from the hotel and the main cable car is 5 steps. The ski in to the hotel is via a blue run so all our party could experience ski in ski out!
The hotel was superb, lovely, comfortable well equipped rooms and plenty of lounges to sit in in the evening. Though this was slightly marred because the Austrians still allow smoking in some communal areas.
The food was excellent, with a six course meal each evening. We were spoilt for choice at breakfast with eggs being freshly prepared.
The boot room was spacious and warm with comfortable chairs.
The spa was lovely, especially the outside pool which had a good view of the piste. However being prudish Brits we didn't use the sauna/steam room as nudity was required!
If you do visit Obergurgl make sure you go to the Nedderhutte for the best après ski in Austria!
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. We will return!

Room Tip: Choose a superior room. If you can go for South facing as there are wonderful views of the piste

Our fourth stay at the Edelweiss and we haven't thought of going anywhere else. The hotel couldn't be closer to the slopes with a ski room where a few steps take you to the gondola/chair lift. We like the sunny, but slightly smaller, south facing rooms with balconies where you can sit in the afternoon and soak up the sun (well, the weather couldn't have been better in the week we went).
The food is excellent with a wide choice, a huge breakfast buffet and five courses in the evening with a salad bar as well. Particular thanks to Alexander who looked after us so well.
We had previously experienced the smokey bar area, there is a bit of smokiness but not as much as we remembered, it looks as though something has been done.
Top tip, lunch in the glass room where the fireplace is- not many people seem to go there, you can choose from the full lunch menu and it's lovely to sit there, relax and soak up the sun.
The downsides? The positives overwhelm but there were a couple of blips with service and our room could probably do with a bit of a refresh but we are looking forward to going back!

Have been coming to this hotel for 7 years and have been going to Obergurgl for 13 years. We always meet our friends out there and have a wonderful time. The location is perfect, it's right on the ski slope and it's not far to walk to the Spa shop and other clothing stores. The boot room is big and is open from 8 am to 8 pm. Drinks at bar area are lovely and the atmosphere is brilliant.

Always stay in room 412, it's perfect for 3-4 people. Great amount of wardrobe space and breath-taking view from the big balcony.

Always have a brilliant stay.

Room Tip: Rooms on floor 4 are good. Floors 5 and 6 the corridors are small. Try and get a window which is facing towards the ski slopes.

It's our third visit to this hotel. We will be returning next year no doubt. It's very welcoming and staff our friendly and efficient. Food is good. We stayed on 2nd floor south side. Room very good but bathroom a bit dated. I echo comments about shower controls and lack of space
