This hotel was undoubtably the best ski hotel that I have ever stayed in. The hotel was clean and comfortable, the staff could not do enough for you and the food was equal to any top London restaurant.
I was slightly worried about the location, as this was my first visit to St. Anton, but the resort is very compact and the town centre was only a 5-7 minute walk from the hotel. The shuttle service from the hotel to the ski lift every morning and the free ski storage at the slopes makes everything so easy.
I will definitely be visitng again!

From the moment we arrived, we knew we had made the right choice with Der Waldhof... Michael and Andreas are great hosts and obviously pass their high standards on to all their staff... everyone we interacted with gave great service even for areas which would not normally be their responsibility
We had a great room (even though it was just normal by the Waldhof Standards) which was much larger than expected and very well laid out... each room / group has their own table in the restaurant for breakfast and dinner... this allows you to get to know your fellow guests as by the end of the week they are old friends
A special note: We were travelling on my wife's birthday... with no special requests from me, they provided a special cake for dinner... was a complete surprise (they just noted the date from our checkin form)
Without a doubt, we will be back...

Room Tip: All rooms are great... sofa bed is also very comfy

We just got back from St Anton where we stayed at the superb Der Waldhof hotel. The hotel was perfect for us. A 5 min taxi (arranged by hotel) each morning to the ski shop where you can leave skis and boots overnight. Then a 2 min walk to your chosen lift and you are off for the day. At the end of the day a free town bus drops you 200m from the hotel.
Then you can spend some time in the very nice saunas and steam room to recover from the skiing and prepare for dinner!
The hotel is really great, super friendly owners who can't do enough to help you, plus friendly, knowledgable staff who are a delight. The food is really superb, we are foodies and this hotel is top class. 4 course dinner every night that didn't fail to impress. Breakfast is also excellent with plenty of choice for everybody.
Our bedroom was large, modern and immaculate. The hotel is charming and small enough to give all guests individual attention. We will definitely be returning, we can not recommend it highly enough.

We have just had a 4 day break at the superb Der Waldhof Hotel. We stayed in one of the top floor suites which is very spacious and well appointed and has magnificent views, there is a separate bedroom with two beds that would make it ideal for a family. The spa has lots of choice of saunas steam room etc and plenty of space to relax. The overall facilities are well thought through for both skiing and summer breaks.

The food however has to be the major assets of this hotel, it is superb. I read previous reports suggesting it being worthy of a Michelin star with some scepticism but they are spot on! The 4 course evening meal was a highly anticipated treat, the menus were original and the quality of ingredients, cooking and presentation were first class. The big surprise was that this level of professionalism also extended to breakfast which avoided the normal buffet in favour of individually prepared original treats. Michael is an artist with food.

The help and service from all the staff was both professional and friendly which added to the pleasure of the stay.

Postives - amazing food, great variety, breakfast & dinner awesome. Wine list & beer good too. I'll mention it again - great.

Comfy bed, big room, cool sauna (though a few too many naked men in there... maybe I'm just English & not used to Scandinavian habits although I wanted to check if it was mixed?)

Location good - 10mins walk into town & free shuttle in the mornings.

(slight) negatives - The staff were nice but I found the owners could have been a little friendlier? We were not particularly rowdy either. The coffee needs an upgrade too

I would DEFINITELY stay there again

Can’t fault it. I travelled to St Anton with two good pals for a ski/snowboard weekend and we can’t give the hotel enough praise.

The service was outstanding, food was out of this world, the bedrooms were clean and well finished and to top it all the snow wasn’t bad either.

Room Tip: Don't miss dinner.

We enjoyed a wonderful visit to St. Anton, which we credit to our stay at Der Waldhof. Here are a few things I loved about the hotel:

1. The location, about a mile outside of town, so it's quiet but easy to get down to the village. They provide you with a shuttle to the lift in the morning, and there is a free bus that drops you off one block away. Or you can easily walk.
2. The accommodations were very clean, simple, comfortable, modern, and spacious. The rooms are very large, with a wonderful view of the mountains. And there is a fantastic spa area with saunas, a steam room, etc.
3. The meals were amazing! The breakfast is everything you hope for in a European breakfast, with eggs to order, meats, fresh breads, cheeses, fresh fruit, yogurt, coffee or tea, juice, etc, etc...And dinner each night is a special treat Michael makes. I loved all the fresh vegetables, excellent cuts of meat, and the selection of wines. The meals were the highlight of our stay.

My only two small complaints are that the bed was fairly soft, but many people prefer that anyway. And the WIFI was difficult to connect to from our room, but we were on vacation and didn't need to be connected that much anyways.

If you're considering another location, don't! I read the reviews here on TripAdvisor before booking our stay and hoped it would be as good as everyone raved...it was and more. Andrea and Michael are perfect hosts. The entire staff does a great job making your stay very comfortable and relaxing. I hope you will give it a try and enjoy your visit to St. Anton. We did!
