This is a good quality three star hotel on the edge of St Anton. It is clean, warm and comfortable. Our room was on the top floor of the annexe, which is as far away as possible from the public rooms, but this was never a problem. There is no lift in the annexe, so you need to be reasonably fit to tackle the three flights of stairs. Our room was spacious, with a large en suite bathroom. The ski-room is small, but adequate for the number of residents in the hotel.
The hotel is a good 15 minute walk from the centre of the village. However, there is a good local bus service with a bus stop just outside the hotel. So we never had to stagger more than a dozen paces from the bus to the ski-room. Convenient or what? The cost of the bus is included in the skipass. What's more, the hotel's own minibus took residents to the village centre each morning, on demand, and at no extra charge. This meant we had to do the very minimum of walking about with skis and in skiboots - wonderful.
Oh yes - and the bus service that links St Anton with the other parts of the ski area stops at the same bus stop.
Two points though. The food is well cooked and plentiful, but it looked as though it was being kept to a very tight budget. Frankly, it was amazing to see how much food could be served cold, in the middle of winter. More hot food need not cost the earth - having soup every night would have been fine.
Also, there was no shower in the en-suite bathroom. This meant taking a bath every night after skiing - which is no hardship, but a shower would have been quicker and preferable. Few people in Britain nowadays take baths: everyone showers.
