We where looking for a Luxury Hotel which was centrally located and have not be disappointed. From the point of arrival, we have been made welcome by everyone. And I mean not only the staff, but also the other guests which where very forthcoming and friendly. Room was fantastic, so was the Pool area, The restaurant and the terrace. We did not eat dinner at the Hotel so we cant comment. Breakfast buffet was slightly smaller than in other 5*star places (and 4*S), however, the quality was outstanding and left nothing to wish for. Lastly, a special thanks for Hr. Erich Stadlhofer (Maître D'Hôtel) which extra attention to detail was very welcoming and is much appreciated. Overall, a 5 Satr experience and highly recommended.

We stayed here just after new year on something between a long weekend and a proper holiday. The exceptional: the service level of the staff is truly exceptional, and I have yet to experience such a high level in Germany. The support staff go above and beyond to make the stay as enjoyable as possible, without it being put on, too much or coming across as affected. This clearly comes from the top down: being a family-owned hotel, the willingness to make each experience enjoyable is clear and palpable from the owners. Another great touch was on our last day, having settled up and left the hotel, we found that our travel plans had been badly affected by inclement weather. The hotel staff were very accommodating and the daughter of the owners kindly drove us 20km to the nearest station. We both thought this was a wonderful touch, and was offered in a very uncomplicated way. The great: the food is excellent (we opted for the Gourmet menu), and does not leave you bloated or stuffed afterwards. Compliments to the chef who is an especially talented with concocting new delicacies at the salad buffet. The spa area was also excellent, and we enjoyed the generously sized swimming pool and sauna area. I would recommend couples go later in the evening to avoid being ‘disturbed’ by children playing in the pool (the hotel is extremely family friendly and thus also attracts families). The hotel organized daily activities, and we joined one of the walks. It was led by the very knowledgeable Andi, who we also understand is a “sauna expert”. I now go into the sauna with supreme confidence about what I’m doing and why :-) The good: the room (classic) was a nice size and we were very comfortable. The decor is very classical (I.e. alpine style), which I very much like but is admittedly not for everyone. The hotel is very very clean. The bad: the only black mark in the whole experience was the WiFi in our room and in one of the communal rooms. We were unable to use it for most of our stay, whilst the hotel staff tried diligently to fix it. The hotel building blocks out much cellphone reception, so we had to rely on the WiFi. They offered many helpful solutions, but we were ultimately inconvenienced as we also needed to do some work. The hotel were very understanding, and compensated for our troubles in a very fair way. Overall: No bad feelings about the minor inconveniences and an overall exceptional experience. Easy 5 stars.

Recent new year stay for 3 nights. Recommend this hotel highly, so friendly with helpful staff that went above and beyond in such a cheerful and professional manner. The hotel really had that family friendly feel and you could tell customer service is paramount to the team that work there. Attention has been paid to the every small detail. Recommend it highly and thank you.

We stayed two weeks in this hotel, and enjoyed every minute of it. Since our previous stay two years ago the hotel has acquired a new chef, who took the food to a five-star level. The evening buffet has surprised us every night for its original but very tasteful combination of ingredients. It's hard to find any fault with the hotel : friendly personnel always ready to help you, clean and nice rooms (with mountain view), underground parking, nice garden. The dining room (also used for breakfast) is at the same time wellcoming and luxurious. The owners of the hotel also make an habit of making small talk with all their guests. This makes for a relaxed athmosphere where you feel at home. Very well located near the center of town, but without nuisance from traffic. We haven't used any of the wellness facilities or swimming pool, but they look the part. Recommended.

We were blown away with this hotel - in every way. Comfortable, spacious, superb staff, delicious food, amazing spa and excellent room. Well located for a short walk into town and a short drive to a variety of ski locations. Fantastic buffet breakfast, highly helpful and attentive staff. From the moment we arrived to the moment of departure the hotel staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. Honestly one of the best hotels for a superb all-round experience anywhere.
