We had a very warm & friendly greeting at hotel reception. We were shown on to the terrace and offered drinks & and a meal from the afternoon buffet, enabling us to relax after our journey. Checking in was very efficient, we were taken to our room - allowing us to unpack, then given a full tour of the Hotels' facilties at our convience.
We booked one of the "Dream Appts", The room was beautifully furnished in a traditional Austrian style, with a king size bed, seating area, large modern bathroom & large balcony overlooking meadows looking down the Tux valley towards the Rastkogel ski area.
The hotels' Wellness facilites are the best we have encountered from our travels around the world!!!
Including: Indoor pool with water massge jets, outdoor whirlpool with a view across the valley, a Sauna, various other types of heated rooms, heath/healing facilities & much more.
All guests are allocated there own table for all meals in the dining room, for the duration of their stay.
There was a great choice of hot & cold food from the breakfast continental style buffet: from scrambled eggs bacon & sausages with eggs being cooked to order, to a large choice of cold meats, breads cheeses etc, there is also an extensive choice of muesli, fruit & fresh juices.
As mentioned before, a large afternoon buffet is provided from 12:00 - 17:00 with hot & cold fare including various teas, coffee & cakes - ideal after a days walking in the local area.
Dinner is waiter service with a salad bar prior to the main meal and a cheese board for those still wishing for more after the main fare.
This is a 6 course meal (with choices from the menu, made at breakfast) - although 6 courses sounds daunting, it is served in an unhurried way, and we were never left feeling overfull or still hungry - the food is diverse and of the highest quality, using local produce if possible - the chefs are to be commended on their professionalism.
There are many activites to be enjoyed in the Zillertal area, and Hotel Bergfried organises daily walks, cycle rides etc, all accompanied by the various members of the experinced Stock family. These excursions are explained together with the weather forecast and other points of interest, in the "Hotel Bergfrieds' daily newsletter" which is supplied at every breakfast.
A diversity of outdoor clothing is required, due to speed at which weather conditions can change - we had sun and 26 deg for 3 days, then fog and rain for a day, the next morning we awoke to 25cm of snow in the upper valley & 40cm on the glacier!!!
Overall we had an wonderful holiday in an excellent Hotel.
Hotel Bergfried is to be highly recommended, with all members of staff being extremely courteous freindly & helpful - nothing was ever to much trouble for them to make our stay more enjoyable.
