Ski out ski in - perfect
We loved this hotel and will look to stay at one of Falkensteiner's ski hotels again. It's everything you need. Skis and boots hire downstairs, ski and boot room too, so ski straight out onto the slopes. Lovely leisure facilities, indoor to outdoor pool with plenty of relaxation areas. Complimentary herbal teas and waters available to aid your relaxation. The spa is calming and treatments are expertly executed. The outdoor part of the pool overlooks the end of the red runs and you can swim in your steaming pool whilst viewing the mountains. Good buffets or order from the menu for table service. Cakes at 3.30-4.30, yummy. The restaurant is large but keeps its individuality by separate areas for dining - all interconnected but with windows onto each part keeping it light and accessible. Views again across the mountains. Rooms are very clean and comfortable, we had a double whilst our family had a room with a double bed, sofa, bunks for the children and plenty of storage. Each room had a balcony for that morning look at the snow and intake of fresh air. The bar area is ambient and again, has separate areas, so whilst enjoying a drink you can feel private aswell as seeing what's going on. The bar staff are proactive in mixing drinks they hadn't been aware of i.e. an espresso martini. They googled the mixology and created the perfect cocktail. Bathrobes and flip-flops (in a large bag) are provided in each room to enable visits to the pool area to run smoothly. Great hotel!
Pros: All of it.
Cons: The restaurant was very hot. It was uncomfortable to eat breakfast in you ski wear. Please turn it down!
Location: Ski out, ski in. Pizzeria opposite. Apart from skiing, we didn't venture outside of the hotel.
