“Warm family Christmas welcome”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

Wonderful hospitality from the family team at the Pfeffermuehle. Second visit to this family run hotel in the St. Jakob area of St. Anton am Arlberg. An excellent hotel for those looking for a quiet, traditional welcome with excellent dining. Shuttle bus is available for transport to the lift in the mornings and afternoon. In-house Sauna and "Brettlejause" are welcome after a day's skiing on the mountain. The 5 course menus are well thought out and innovative and a treat for those looking for high quality prepared with attention to detail. Rooms and beds are 4 star.

To quote another hotel guest:"If we never come back, it will be to our loss." Our family vacation has been brilliant, most due to the fantastic hospitality of the Klimmer family and their staff, excellent breakfasts and even better dinners, extremely clean and large apartment, clever and seamless solutions for storing skis and transportation to and from the wonderful slopes of St. Anton. The only thing we ever have had to think about theese 7 days, are which slopes to ski in and what to drink for dinner, the rest has been take care of. We give the Klimmer family our best recommendations!

Daniela and Herbert manage a fantastic "family style" hotel in St Jakob in close proximity to Nassereinbahn in St Anton. We (family of four) stayed for a week in January in a the "tower" apartment comprising two bedrooms, large living/dining area including a kitchenette. There was no need for the kitchenette as the food (half board) was superb with an extensive buffet breakfast and an excellent five course dinner.
The Klimmers work very hard to offer high standards of service and nothing seemed too much trouble - Daniela would seek answers to any questions we had. The cleanliness of the Hotel was highest standards.
We really liked the "on call" hotel shuttle to Nassereinbahn where the Hotel arranged secure storage for ski gear that we did not need to carry more than ten steps.
Do yourself a favour if you plan to ski in St Anton and stay at Zur Pfeffermuhle!

Room Tip: Top floor tower apartment had great views over St Jakob.

Our family just got back from a 6-night stay at this hotel near Sankt Anton. More precisely it is located in the adjoining village called Sankt Jakob. You can reach Sankt Anton either in foot (20 min) or by the convenient hotel shuttle mini-van or by the public bus that makes the run up and down the valley every 15 min.

The Pfeffermuehle is a small inn with 20+ rooms that is run by a charming couple, their two young daughters and a very attentive staff. We stayed in a suite with our two teenage children. The rooms are well appointed with plenty of space for all, including ample closets for all our gear. The rooms are well insulated for sound. You don't hear the neighbours or anything else.

We chose the full pension program, which means breakfast, afternoon snack and supper. The food was delicious and above our expectations. Breakfast is a buffet of gargantuan proportions with a juicer to allow guests to make their own fresh orange or vegetable juice. You can also have eggs with bacon or ham. The afternoon snack varies but we found we needed to pass for fear of exploding during our holidays. Supper is a 5-course affair with a couple of choices for the main course. There was a lot of variety in this meal _ most of the courses were delicious.

Other guests were almost all German or Austrian, and it appeared that they were regulars who stayed here year after year.

The shopping and nightlife is in Sankt Anton. There is nothing of the sort in Sankt Jakob. That being said, those areas are linked by the transport options mentioned earlier - which run into the night.

The Klimmer family know their area very well and offered good insights to maximise our stay.

I work in the hospitality industry and I recommend this establishment unreservedly.

This is a fantastic family run hotel (with around 25 rooms) where the Klimmer family do everything they can to enhance your stay. We stayed in a suite which was spacious and comfortable and immaculately serviced every day. Food is excellent - lovely breakfast buffet with cooked breakfast made to order and 5 course evening meal plus cheese buffet. The chef was very flexible and made alternatives to the menu very happily on request. Afternoon tea is also included with a savoury or sweet snack when you come in from skiing which was lovely. The hotel is in the St Jakob area of St Anton, around 15-20 minutes walk from the centre but don't let that put you off. The hotel runs a bus on demand to and from the lifts every day - morning and afternoon - either to the main lifts, Galzig and Rendl, or to Nasserein, whichever you prefer. This journey is only 5 minutes and effectively makes the hotel ski in/ski out with no walking in ski boots required. They also pay for you to have heated ski and boot storage at either Galzig or Nasserein - again your choice. The advantage of being away from the centre is it is very quiet in the evening. However, there is a bus stop nearby served by the free ski bus during the day and by one of the night buses if you want to go out in the evening. We were the only English speaking guests in the hotel and were very impressed by the effort Daniela Klimmer made to get us an English newspaper we liked every day - she was always around and available to help - a fantastic hostess!
