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 :-)
