We booked ths trip as a last minute deal with the British tour company Thomson who are in association with TUI. It was on a full board basis - breakfast - packed lunch and three course meal with 1/4 litre of wine. Breakfast was buffet style with all sorts of cerials, fresh fruit, toast and fresh fruit juices and tea or coffee. Most nights the hotel had some form of entertainment which we didn't bother much with. All in all for a tour company the standard was very good, the staff very friendly, good quality of food and service always with a smile, we really enjoyed our stay here.
Unique Quality: We had the most splendid views from our shared balcony - shared between three rooms although one was not occupied during our stay = maybe we talk too much so no one else appeared. Long moments spent quietly too just reading and looking at the marvellous vistas. The room was very comfortable with good ensuit facilities, TV and sitting area. There were no tea/coffee making facilities, in fact all extras came with a price tag such as if you wanted daily towel change. We didn't bother with the extras - we had bottled water in the room and the towels were changed mid week = which all goes to save the environment. The best feature of the room was most definately the bed = Austrian type with a double base but two seperate mattresses, individual quilts and lovely soft pillows creating a very restful sleep.
Directions: A short stroll from the village centre
Unique Quality: As well as hot and cold buffet brreakfast, packed lunches and eveniing meals our excellent late deal paackage also included afternoon tea. Each day a fresh home baked cake, tasty breads and jam with tea, coffee and chocolate awaited you. No wonder we had to do so much walking to burn off the calories!
A weeks stay here on a British travel company package deal. The Alpenhof is situated just a couple of minutes walk from the village centre.Our room had a balcony facing the Wilder Kaiser - get a room on the second floor for this otherwise you will have a view into the supermarket! The other rooms faced the garden area which was a pleasant spot to enjoy the included afternoon tea.
The staff were really friendly and our rep was a Geri Halliwell lookalike who helped us organise our trip to Salzburg :-)
Update 2011 - this hotel is no more - there is a new supermarket where it used to be!
Unique Quality: There is a handy adjacent supermarket and the local bus stops virtually outside the door. The tastefully decorated dining room at the Alpenhof is also open to non-residents, giving it an international/local charm. Meals were delicious - good vegetarian options too!
