We were on our way back from Shteinbal waterfall and stopped to have a late lunch. My husband took one of speciality: beef in mushrooms sauce and I had a fish. Children had schnitzel. It was very tasty meal and very relaxed (children were playing on playground nearby). Service is very good and welcoming.

A group of 10 of us arrived at the Hotel Waldhof after spending a week further up the mountain, hoping for a lovely relaxing last night, what we got was a very memorable experience, but not in a good way.

On arrival at the hotel (with confirmation in hand) at about 6:30pm, still in ski gear, hungry and in desperate need of a shower we were informed they had found out this morning there was a "problem" and they had double booked us, and therefore couldn't accommodate our group. This was shocking for a number of reasons:

a/ They hadn't bothered to call or email us before our arrival to inform us that this had happened, despite having contact details

b/ They had made no efforts to find alternative accommodation in the intervening 12 hours

c/ They were just rude

We managed to sort out one apartment at the hotel, in which 4 of us could stay, so we began the process of trying to find the remaining 6 of us bedrooms in the area. NOT EASY at 7 o'clock on a Saturday night. Eventually another hotel was found (that's another story all together). As this one was more expensive, they agreed to have the 10 of us for dinner in the hotel. The food was below average and tasted a little like it was frozen and reheated.

Just to round off the evening, following dinner, the group staying in the other hotel decided to go back to back for a night cap. One of the party in the Wardof wanted to come back for one drink with us, so we went up to reception and asked for an additional key and also confirmed that this would allow them back in if the doors were locked. It didnt, she ended up having to enter the hotel through the hotel "nightclub", which was fortunately still open. Again there was no apology for the fact that someone was stranded outside their hotel in below freezing conditions. Apparently they found it rather amusing.

It most definitely is not 4*. 3*would be generous.

I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.

This is definitely not a 4-Star Hotel in the middle of Europe.
The Hotel is runned so unprofessionally. Reklamations will be laughted at.

We wanted to spend 9 days from our winter holiday in this hotel and have booked it for more than 170 EUR per day and with demi-pension.
The double room was so dirty(pls see pictures). The dinner was far below a snack bar standard.

No privacy as one has to share a balkony with at least 3 other rooms, who can just look directly inside ones bed.

The hotel is runned by a couple. The wife is sitting at the reception and the husband is playing the waiter and the cook. We have not seen any other hotel staff.

The double room we had was big, but ice cold. We had very outworn blankets and we had to use our jackets to keep warm as no one would bring us more blankets.

The water was cold so that we could not take any shower. The room roof had deep holes in it and the corners of the room were cobwebby. I would like to remind you here that we were in December there and that spiders can not survive in such a cold weather, so that we can only assume that the room has been badly cleaned months before we arrived.

As we made a reclamation about the dirt in our room and asked for help, the hotel owners Family Baumann did not care and was not offering us any help. The wife said to us to go and complain by our travel agent where we have booked the holiday.

Even If we had already payed the nine days stay, we left the hotel immediately as we did not get any help offer from the hotel owners.

We want to share with you this bad experience in order to spare you from having to go through the same.

This hotel will be a horror trip for every one who is used to good service, good foods and cleanliness.
