Hotel Gotthard-Zeit
Ranked #15 of 33 Hotels in Obergurgl
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 3, 2011

This was our first Skiing holiday as a family. Obergurgl provided EXCELLENT skiing conditions providing more than enough slopes for us all to ski! The longest we queued at any of the lifts was about 20 seconds . . . . I think we have been spoiled :-)

The hotel was clean and perferctly located as it was only a few steps from boot room to slope. A short 1 min ski down to the main lift area with access to the 2 main ski lifts.

Both the breakfast and dinner which were included in the price were of excellent quality! A wide choice of food was always on offer and many courses were available . . . some of the best inclusive food I have seen.

Unfortunately the hotel was kept at a very high temperature (about 29-30 degrees c 24/7)
and despite being a 4* hotel you could not adjust the temperature in your room. This left all of us unable to get a comfortable night's sleep during our entire stay. After asking reception I was told they could not turn down the temperature as it would effect the whole hotel and that we should try opening a window.

Sleeping with the balcony door wide open all night cooled the room to a reasonable temperature (it was -10 outside so this shows you how hot the room was) but left us dealing with a cold draft through the room.

Another downside to the hotel was the quality of the toilet paper . . . . . minor point but something that really makes a difference. The cheap paper they use is what I would expect to find in a public convenience not a 4* hotel. It's like using sandpaper! TAKE YOUR OWN!

Final point - There was no room service available and purchased drinks / food had to be kept downstairs in the restaurant. Not ideal if you wanted a tea/coffee in your room.

All in all not bad but we will look for an alternative hotel next year when we return to Obergurgl . . . . certainly if you like it hot then this is the hotel for you :-)

Great location, great rooms and food, very very rude owners who ruined our holiday and our friends holiday with their rudeness
Shame to spool a beautiful hotel with great other staff with this attitude

Took my wife to Austria for the first time. Last couple of years we have been to les trois vallees in France.
But this is the real deal, nothing fake or made to look like here.
Everything we imagine wintersports to be, good food, service, cleanliness and fabulous boarding.
The suite rooms are nice and big and have a lovely bathroom.
Spa in the hotel was very nice and my wife had a massage there and was also very happy with the treatment.
Getting recognized by the staff after the first day and greeted from here on till the end of the week seems natural but is only down to displaying interest in the client and at Gotthard they certainly make work of pleasing the client.

Next year we will certainly be back, maybe even in a month or two.
Thanks to everyone at Gotthard for taking such good care of us.
Next time we drink a bottle of Moët together!

Grtz, Fam. Flaton

We had stayed in Hotel Gotthard on four previous occasions and this time brought two friends with us as we had enjoyed it so much.

It is in a fantastic location where you can ski to the door and the food is excellent and spa area great. On our last day however the male owner was incredibly rude to my husband (to the point where the receptionist even apologised later to us). Our friends were accused of not paying for a cup of tea in the afternoon which they had never had and they were even telephoned to their room quite late at night. Over the week they had spent a lot of money in the bar etc and they certainly had not even had this cup of tea. So unfortunately this year we have booked with another hotel as we do love Obergurgl. After bringing these friends with us we felt totally humiliated and also how my husband was treated.

We have been skiing in Obergurgl every year for the past 17 years and we always stay in the Gotthard, where you are guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome in very comfortable surroundings and facilities eg: sauna, steam room & pool etc. The cuisine is simply wonderful and is an experience not to be missed. Ideally located for door to door skiing in a top class resort.

We stayed in the Gotthard on our 5th trip to Obergurgl, having also stayed in 2 other very good hotels in the resort on previous trips. The Gotthard is without doubt the best hotel we have stayed in so far and we will definitely be going back. The location is outstanding being right on the slopes above the lifts and the boot room is a mere 10 paces from the slope entry with no stairs involved - perfect ski in/out in fact. The bedrooms, public rooms and spa facilities are excellent and the food is superb. The staff are also incredibly friendly and helpful in all areas of the hotel and the highly professional owners are always visible on the premises checking everyone is happy. British guests are made to feel especially welcome. We had absolutely no complaints about anything connected to our stay, which is quite unusual for us. All in all we consider the Gotthard to be one of the very best hotels we have ever stayed in during our many travels around the World.

From the moment we arrived at the Gotthard, we were made to feel so welcome. The friendliness of all of the staff within this hotel is exceptional. The Scheiber family ensure that each guest is made to feel very special and the managerial staff tour the restaurant each night to check on their guests & ask how their day has been.

The food was very good - a good selection at breakfast with hot & cold buffet & 5 or 6 courses each night with a choice for your main course. The chef presents each dish with such attention, that at times it appears too good to eat!

It appears that this hotel has guests that return year after year & as newcomers to this hotel, we can understand why. There were 2 other guests that had not stayed here previously & having met up with them, we were all in agreement that we will return at the same time next year.

We had upgraded our bedroom to one with a west facing balcony & although nice, we were not sure that it was something that we would rush to do next time. The rooms are fairly spacious but we both felt that they needed a freshen up (but it completely suited our needs after a day skiing & did not spoil our stay in anyway). The beds are by far & away the most comfortable bed that we have ever slept in!

The indoor spa & pool was very welcoming - large windows with sunloungers overlooking the slopes - this was extremely relaxing after a day's skiing.
The best thing about this hotel was that the ski locker room is right next to reception & from there, you put on your boots & skis, step outside of the hotel & you are on the ski slopes - marvellous! There is a very sunny terrace that was perfect for stopping & having lunch or a beer/ wine after a morning ski! There are a selection of daily apres ski snacks that vary from savoury to sweet dishes - these are free and are another nice touch from the Scheiber family & their chefs.

Drinks within this hotel are reasonably priced, especially when compared to the French Alps. There is a very comfortable lounge bar area & the only one criticism is that smoking is still allowed here; fortunately smoking is not permitted within the dining room.

We would like to have returned to the hotel in the summer, but it appears that they are closing after the winter season this year.

Overall, a very postive experience of staying in Obergurgl, Austria and credit to the Scheiber family at the Gotthard who are without doubt responsible for this.

Would we return? Undoubtedly yes - we too, wish to become regular guests like every one else that we met staying here.
