We stayed at the Hotel Montana for a week in April 2017.

1. Oberlech, which is two hours' drive from Zurich, is a small, car-free resort about 400 metres above Lech, accessed by a cable car or a chairlift (we had to leave early in the morning to catch our flight, but the cable car was running). It is linked to a resort called Warth and between the two there is just about enough skiing to keep you entertained for a full week. However, the resort is linked with the rest of Lech as well as other resorts, such as Zurs and St Anton. Altogether there is a huge amount of accessible skiing to satisfy even the most ardent skier (it takes about an hour and twenty minutes to ski to St Anton).

2. Oberlech is a car-free resort, with a focus on family-owned, family-friendly hotels. There are not many restaurants on the mountain, most people eat lunch at the hotels, which have great food and lovely terraces.

3. The hotel is in a fantastic location. Ski-in/ski-out and right by the ski school meeting point, with a beautiful vista. Our room had a balcony that overlooked the valley and the mountains opposite, which were very beautiful. The terrace gets the sun for pretty much the whole day. There is a ski-hire shop in the basement of the hotel next-door.

4. The hotel is furnished in a traditional style, and looks like it has been renovated recently. The restaurant and bar were both attractive and our room was nice. The spa area was pleasant, although it was in the basement and the pool was small, which was a bit of a disappointment compared to the hotel we went to last year in Obergurgl, which had a fantastic spa with views overlooking the slopes and a large pool, where you wanted to hang out.

5. We had a family suite (room 605), which had two separate bedrooms with two bathrooms and a sitting area in one of the bedrooms. It was very clean. There was plenty of space, including storage space for ski outfits and luggage. There were about four English language channels on the TV and a very good wifi connection.

6. The food in the restaurant was excellent, some of the best we have had in a skiing hotel. Breakfast was extensive - fruit, meats, breads, pastries and cooked options. Dinner was a five course affair every night, save for the six course gala dinner. There were no separate options on the menu, but the staff were very willing to change things and said that we could effectively have whatever we wanted. One of our kids ate from the children's menu, which I would have been very happy to have had! The staff were really lovely, very engaging and happy to chat.

7. The hotel is very well set up for families, which was evidenced by the number of return guests, particularly those with young children. There is a kids area with table tennis, etc, kids supper Is arranged in the bar each evening at 6pm and a film is then put on at 7pm. Our children are 11 and 14 and we're too old for this, but we could see how well it worked for others.

8. We really enjoyed our stay. My only gripe are the pool size and location and the fact that children's supper in the bar meant that pre-dinner drinks were not overly relaxing, but you sort of know what you're in for. Out of school holidays, I think the atmosphere would have been very different.

9. The snow was good, even though it was late in the season and the season has not been particularly good. There was plenty of snow and it snowed a couple of times during our stay.

In summary, we really enjoyed our holiday and could see ourselves going back.

Dear "Londotripadviser",

Thank you very much for your detailed review here on TripAdvisor.

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and went home with memorable experiences.

You are completely right, we are a family friendly hotel and we offer a special children menu at 6.00 pm in our hotel bar. During vacations, many families appreciate this, therefor the bar is more alive in this time.

Again, thank you very much for your good review and we would be very happy to welcome you back here.

Best regards,

We stay at The Montana every year now and although the rest of the Hotels in Oberlech are great, you simply cannot beat the Montana's location, views and ambience, in particular the sunny lunch terrace. Thanks once again to the Family Ortlieb, Soe and staff for another super week in the Arlberg Mountains.

Room Tip: Choose a south facing balcony room

We have just returned from our first stay at the Montana having enjoyed lunch on the terrace during a previous trip to Lech. Our experience was excellent.
The room was clean, comfortable and warm, serviced discreetly while we were at breakfast and again during dinner.
The standard in the restaurant both of food and service is first class. Although a set menu each evening there are plenty of other options offered. Our meal each evening was delicious. The hotel's wine cellar, quite rightly, is a source of pride.
Oberlech is not for those looking for lively apres ski but the peace and quiet at the end of the day, after the crowds have gone, sitting on the hotel terrace watching the sun set, is very special.
Two generations of the Ortlieb family are very present in the hotel throughout the day and I am certain this accounts for the excellent standards.
Thank you to the Montana team for a superb trip. We hope to return!

Big menu, reasonably priced (although definitely higher this year), very good provence rose. Salads are excellent and the daily ski plate is always worth considering. Book ahead, particularly on sunny days.

We stopped here for a late lunch whilst skiing. We opted to sit inside although there were heaters outside for the tables. The dining room was very impressive and the staff were very smartly dressed. We ordered the smoked salmon main course with rosti and a small carafe of local white wine and were very impressed. Service was excellent and prices were reasonable. We had not booked but in good weather would highly recommend reserving a table outside as the views are lovely from terrace.
