Overall Wes "makes" this hotel, it was as we expected, clean, comfortable, good food.
Wes - The best hotel manager experienced in 30 years of holidaying. Extremely helpful, knowledgeable, entertaining. In fact all staff are friendly and helpful.
Hotel - proximity to the slopes, apparently there's a ski bus right outside but is only a very pleasant 10 minute walk to/from the slope (we did use the ski garage though so weren't having to carry the gear. Very good value). Also very near to the village to explore, which I recommend - there's a little bit more than skiing and drinking to do and see. Rooms - functional, clean, warm (too warm - had to keep the window open on a night! even after having turned down the radiator). Excellent shower, lots of power and hot water. We had a 2nd floor room at the front of the hotel - overlooking the supermarket and the cafe; and glorious views of the ski ranges and further mountains. Food - evening meals were mainly traditional fare and were very good (especially the garlic soup), breakfast had a good wide choice of basic cereals, muesli, fruit, juice, continental meats and cheese, eggs, bacon, tea and coffees - all self service/self cook. The Red Horse is the only non-smoking bar in Soll, long may it stay that way (keep an eye out for those who flout the rules).
Now the negative - Yes it's a party hotel so expect noise. Actually, when in the rooms you don't hear any from the 3 bars; it's as people leave which can be at all times of the night/morning. But more annoyingly the noise from the people staying at the hotel when they couldn't find their room so knocked on other doors, or they wanted to discuss the meaning of life (or why their wife had left them - go figure if that's your normal behaviour!) with the rest of their group at 4 in the morning. As one reviewer said earplugs and a drink or two yourself might help.
