Stayed at the Seiwald 2 adults 2 children (ages 10,8) from March 3rd 2012, we were allocated x2 double rooms as we booked fairly late, the rooms were rear facing and have not been refurbished although they were clean and roomy enough for our needs, during our stay we had 3 !! birthdays and I had arranged to have cakes made by the hotel which were fantastic, Sarah on the reception was very helpful with all of our enquiries and certainly helped make our birthdays special, the food at this hotel is great, breakfast is both hot and cold and our waiter Feri always offered the children hot chocolate at breakfast, evening meals were typical Tyrolean fare and for the children there was always options to their preference, you cannot complain with either the quality of service or the menu they really make an effort to keep you happy.The hotel also has a nice size pool and spa complex which we used each night although we didnt partake in the austrian tradition of going in the knacker !!
On the skiing front we didnt ski in kirchdorf at all as we all are intermediate skiers so we took the 'free' ski bus each morning to St Johann where the kids attended the 'Blue' ski school, bit disappointed with the instructor approach on the first day as they were rather intolerant of some of the kids ski legs although things did improve as the week went by.
Food on the mountain was great hot chocolate and some stodge could be had for less than 8 euros which beats the rip off french prices although the children were doing about 10 euros each for lunch while dining with the ski school. Snow was great for fairly late season and we managed to ski into St Johann village at the end of each day, we also had days at Kitzbuhel and Steinplatte and found Kitzbuhel busy but Steinplatte a fab day out skiing as a family
Beware that on Saturdays the free ski buses are not as frequent as it is change over day and the timetable is different.
We are planning another holiday in this area and would not hesitate to return to this hotel given our experience at this hotel, thanks to all staff at the Seiwald
