We stayed at Pension Edelweiss over Christmas 2013-two families, all adults. There were nine of us altogether and Bettina gave us all rooms on the second floor. We made enquiries early on in the year and were kept informed by Bettina as to availability.
Before we arrived lots of e-mails answering our questions and offering advice were forthcoming, which was really helpful.
We met all the family, who were warm and welcoming hosts.
Bettina and Freda were so helpful and went well beyond what they needed to do; they put a tack in the wall for our knitted Christmas tree,were very understanding when we had a mishap, even stitched up my salopettes on Christmas Day-thank you! Bettina also helped try to locate my son's phone which we thought he had lost in Soll once we had returned to the U.K.
We had three en-suite rooms and two with their own showers and a shared toilet on the landing. All rooms represented excellent value and were spotlessly clean with comfortable beds, ample furniture for storage and were lovely and warm.
Each morning we had a lovely welcome in the breakfast room. There was a good selection of teas, orange juice,cereal, preserves, bread rolls, cheese and ham. All were of a good quality and very fresh. Boiled eggs were available, to order.
We also sat in the breakfast room on Christmas Day early evening to open our presents. It was really cosy and homely.
Although the ski bus stop is just by the house we stored our equipment most days at the tobaggan hire shop by the gondola and walked to and from there every day. On two occasions we skied almost all the way back to the house [across a field] as we were catching the bus next morning to Scheffau. This was also really easy to do as the bus stop is only five minutes walk from the house.
Within a stones throw of the house is a new Spar-really handy for drinks and snacks. There is also a little cafe in there.
There are plenty of places to eat in Soll and none of them too far away. It is really quite easy to get to anywhere in the village on foot.
I cannot thank Bettina and her family enough for their warm hospitality. I would recommend Pension Edelweiss to anyone who is looking for somewhere in this price range.
As a previous reviewer mentioned, there have been lots of recent improvements inside and out.The website photos therefore need to be updated and do not do the property justice. It is far nicer in reality.
