“The Best!”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

My wife and I stayed at Der Waldhof for 2 nights in June as part of a 2-week road trip from the UK to Vienna. We cannot compliment owners Andrea and Michael enough on their hospitality and the quality of their hotel. Best stay in our trip, which included many well-rated 4 and 5 star hotels. All staff friendly, helpful and very competent. Superb dinners and breakfasts from Michael and his kitchen team, the dinners certainly comparable with the offerings of Michelin-starred restaurants in Lyon that we visited earlier in the year. A great room with quality fittings, space, an excellent bed and the wonderful smell of pine - apparently conducive to relaxation and a good night's sleep - seemed to work! Lots of help from Andrea, including guidance on local sights and outings.

The hotel is a little way out of and above St. Anton - too far for all but keen walkers to manage on foot - but a positive in terms of clean, fresh air and quiet relaxation. Probably not the place to stay if your priorities are bar-hopping. Not being ski-ers we can't really comment on how convenient it would be in the ski season.

Overall a great little hotel. Can't wait to visit again, hopefully for longer.

This is a brand new boutique hotel with just 18 rooms built in 2009. The owners clearly take a ton of pride and joy in their place, even having books available with pictures of the process to build it. I am a neat freak and it was immaculate. We love food and the half board rate comes with a truly amazing breakfast and 4 course dinner. Literally no complaints other than the snow didn't let us hike as much as we wanted due to the time of year. Would highly reccommend!

This was our first skiing excursion to Austria. Having arrived into Zurich, the 'Railjet' train was a scenic and quick (2.5 hours) connection to St Anton. Our hosts had arranged a taxi to meet us at the station, 5 minutes later we arrived to a warm welcome from our hosts Andrea and Michael. Andrea provided a thorough orientation of the hotel, St Anton area and skiing options. We were upgraded to one of the suites on the 3rd floor. The room was of generous proportions, comfortable, well appointed, tastefully decorated with a terrific view up the valley. The half board arrangement made the experience all the more special. Each evening we enjoyed a sumptuous meal of 4 courses. Michael's menus were skillfully created and well complemented by their wine list. If you are a foodie and not happening to stay at the hotel, make sure to make a dinner reservation. Breakfast was no 'buffet' affair, again Michael maintains a high standard. The hotel is located up the valley from St Anton, approximately 20 minute by foot. This in my opinion is a plus, as 'downtown' St Anton may become noisy in the evenings as the apres skiing spills out on the street. The hosts arrange a shuttle to the lift stations in the morning and the local [free] buses deliver you within a short walk from the hotel in the evening. The skiing in the St Anton area was up there with some of our best experiences in Utah and Colorado. St Anton has plenty of off piste options for those needing to tempt fate. There are easy connections to the Zur/Zug/Lech area where the alpine views are so incredible, you need to pinch yourself every now and then. Returning to the hotel after a day on the planks requires some downtime in the wellness center, where one must choose from the 3 types of sauna, steam room or relaxation room. We stayed 8 nights and would have no hesitation in thinking where we would book our next stay in St Anton.

The hotel has all the right amenities, rooms are spacious, downstairs sauna is great after skiing and the restaurant is excellent. What really sets this hotel apart is the incredibly warm and gracious service from its owners, Michael and Andrea. They really make you feel welcome in their home.

We had a huge modern room with every facility including very comfortable bed and soft pillows but the Cooking under Michel's leadership was exceptional.Delicious 4 course dinner and superb breakfast every day. Add to that warm welcoming service under Andrea's guidance.Very special stay

Room Tip: Go for a suite! you get a huge bath!Great views

I currently live in Switzerland and spent a long weekend this past March skiing in St. Anton. This hotel is beautiful. The rooms are really well furnished and decorated. The wellness center is great. HOWEVER, the best part of the hotel has to be the food. Andrea and Michael and their staff presented by far, the best food I have ever had at a hotel. Breakfast and dinner were both Fantastic. Location was good. The hotel organizes a shuttle bus to the lift and also organizes ski and boot storage at the base of the hill.
This is a great hotel for a ski holiday in St. Anton.

We stayed here in January and found Michael, Andrea and their staff so charming, the hotel pristinely clean and georgously fitted out, and the food unsurpassable...so we had to return again at the beginning of April. We had yet another wonderful week and cannot find a fault. Der Waldhof is a short bus ride from the centre and lifts, but with a morning taxi door to door, ski storage free through the hotel at the bottom of the Galzigbahn, and buses every 10 minutes back throughout the day this is not a problem. It is quietly situated with plenty of space around and woods opposite. Many thanks for another wonderful and relaxing break.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely!
