“Don't go for the Dinner”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2006

The Post in Westendorf is in a lovely village, with plenty of alternatives if you are not skiing - visiting Salzburg(easy, reasonably priced,great trains), snow shoe walking, good gift shops and a lovely clothes shop, coffee and cakes cafe etc.

The Post was adequate, but basic. Very dull in the way of furnishings (bottle green predominates) but very clean with excellent maid service.

Wonderfully easy access to the ski lifts for here and Brixen. One 'why not' is the quality of food in the standard dining room. Night after night of salty processed soup - well it wasn't night after night because we started eating elsewhere - unimaginative, overcooked main courses and desserts from somewhere in the 70's.(fruit cocktail with value type ice cream,
a single doughnut, srctic roll). No fresh fruit, no fresh veg - I think the mash was reconstitued. Breakfast - orange cordial, not juice and the ubiquitous fruit cocktail in syrup.
If you enjoy camping I think you will probably be fine. The good news is that there are plenty of alternatives - even at the Post a la carte dining room.

Waiting staff were 95% charming. The manager was on the wrong side of rude to our party and we were treated badly over room allocation.

I spent a week skiing with friends based at the Post. Access to the nursery slopes couldn't be easier and the bus stop to take you to the ski welt is just behind the hotel. That's the good bit.
The rooms are basic but ok - except that one of the four we booked somehow wasn't available and we were given childsized makeshift beds instead.
The hallway is depressing, not the 'traditional' welcome we expected. The bar is 'lively' - ie difficult to find space, the Weinstube is used for a la carte so don't expect to be able to use it. The central location means you are also handy for the church- chimes from 6am, mass at 7am - and two night clubs, one either side of the hotel, the contents of which spill out between 2-4.30am. This may be an advantage to some, but we weren't so keen. Residents eat in a more basic, than the Weinstube, restaurant at the back of the hotel. The set dinner menu was so disgusting we ended up eating elsewhere - once a la carte in the hotel, which was delicious. Hard to believe it was the same chef!!
We liked Westendorf, but won't go back to the Post!

Just back from a week in The Post in Westendorf. The location is superb - a 2 minute walk from the nursery slopes and the chairlift. The gondola is less than a 10 minute walk away which takes you to middle station and also on up to the top of the mountain. The rooms are very, very basic but clean and pretty spacious. The winter wonderland view from the balcony was lovely. The heating was on too high so we turned it off in an effort to get some rest. The beds aren't the most comfortable but still managed to get some sleep. The bar was pretty buzzy most nights with drinks being cheaper there than in some of the others we went to. (Try their hot chocolate & rum but not when it's busy as they wont be too happy). We were on a half board basis. Breakfast was traditional Austrian fare and set us up well for the day on the slopes but the included dinner wasn't really up to much. We stuck that out for 2 nights and then changed to the public "a la carte" restaurant at the front and the food there was very good. We couldnt believe this was being produced by the same hotel! Other restaurants to check out are Marcels (the venison is fantastic) and the Alpenhof (if you can get a table). Worth noting that in all cases, we needed to book a table in advance and that was end of season. If I was going back for skiing, then I wouldn't go past the Post as it really is ideally located. However, it doesnt really have facilities for the non-skier.
