“A first class hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

We found this hotel on a late deal with Crystal and, as it was in the Crystal 'Finest' range, we expected it to be good. In fact the hotel and its staff exceeded our expectations.
We arrived late (about 21:30) to a warm welcome and once we had freshened up we were served with a meal and looked after by Sabrina, one of the hotel's charming and helpful staff. Our room (103) was large, warm and very well-furnished, the bathroom was again large and well appointed. Beds were comfortable and wardrobes/drawers plentiful, the whole room had a relaxed and comfortable feel. The hotel mirrored the rooms in that everywhere was spacious, calm and comfortable from the large lounge with open fire to the conservatory and dining room. The food was exceptionally good, well presented and there was always a choice on the evening menu (meat, fish, vegetarian). Buffet breakfasts were pleasant and relaxed with good food and plenty of choice (hot and cold) and the 13:00 to 17:00 buffet lunch/afternoon snack with tea/coffee etc was a nice touch for skiers and non-skiers alike. For skiers the hotel provides a mini bus to and from the nearest lifts or the bus station for those wishing to go further afield. The driver was extremly obliging and always on time so there was no need to use the local ski bus services. Downstairs there is a large and well laid-out ski room, a children's play room, free internet access, a small gym and a pool table. There is also access to a large and well-appointed Spa and Swimming pool area for some serious relaxation.
Overall this is a first-class hotel with a relaxing atmosphere, pleasant obliging staff, pleasant and very 'hands on' owners, good food and good facilities. We will be back!

Room Tip: From what we saw all rooms are good.

We went to this hotel on 7th January using crystal ski. They don't refer to Schruns but just call the resort 'Montafon'.

The hotel is lovely in a warm wooden building. Meals are excellent 5 courses and served at the table except for the salad bar which is help yourself. The staff all wear traditional Austrian clothes and are very friendly and helpful. There is a wide choice at breakfast with champagne on Sunday morning and most days eggs are cooked to order to your liking and are served with bacon or sausage. Plenty of fresh fruit, yoghurts, muesli, chesses, cooked meats etc. The only slight niggle was arriving late after a very long journey (snow storms caused problems the day we arrived) to a cold platter of meats and cheese instead of dinner, but I think that this is usual for the area on arriving late. The 'snack' buffet was open every day from 12:30 until 5pm and usually had some lovely soup and nice cakes as well as a salad bar. This was completely free and you could help yourself to hot chocolate, tea and coffee too. (I think I would have preferred this snack on our first day's late arrival)

There is a cosy bar area with a large wood fire and we were invited for a drink on the house on one evening.

The rooms were the largest we've ever stayed in - absolutely huge. They were of a very high standard, nice and warm with comfortable beds (austrian twin). The hotel were very helpful and seperated our children's (young adults) beds so that they were proper twin beds. There was absolute peace and quiet - no noise from anywhere.

Skiing here is very good and convenient. The hotel have a minibus and take you to the lift and collect you when you are ready to come back. We hired our skis/boots using crystal vouchers and collected them at the intersport shop up the Hochjoch lift. They had never heard of Crystal but worked out that it was part of the TUI group. We hired lockers in the shop which was also very convenient but unfortunately had a set of skis stolen from outside the shop - so be careful there. Runs were fine for us - mainly blue and red.

The hotel also has a very good wellness area. It's rather hidden away in the basement behind a very ordinary looking door, but when you go through it's like a whole new world! There are saunas, steam rooms and relaxation rooms, wellness showers a massage/beauty/wellness area and a huge swimming pool.

We had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel. We went in a very quiet week so there weren't many people in the hotel.
