Went for a week's skiing with Crystal Ski. First time in Austria and we had picked this hotel as it was well situated in the resort. It is a 4 star year round hotel, well maintained and run, and was a great location in the spa town of Badhofgastein. Food was fine for breakfast with a very wide selection of cold dishes, breads and cereals. Dinner was a buffet with a very wide range of starters and salads followed by a choice of 4 hot dishes with veg and potatoes, sweets and cheese to finish. Plenty of choice and good friendly staff, Judith was excellent. Beer and wine was free in the restaurant area whilst dinner was on.
Boot room with heated pipes to dry out your boots.
Room was great with a balcony and was very quiet, very well looked after and pristine. If you do not want your room cleaned the following day they give you 2 tokens for a pre dinner drink in the bar. The bar area is quite large and the bar staff friendly, Martina especially. On 6 oo 7 evenings there was live music
The hotel has a great spa area with a large pool, jacuzzi, saunas etc all free for guests inc a towelling robe. We used this at the end of the day before dinner. The front desk staff were very helpful.
Access to the ski area was excellent with the 2 bus stopping right outside the hotel to take you to the bus station to connect with the funicular up to the Badhofgastein slopes or the buses to the other parts of the valley. If you stay on the 2 you get to Angertal which has gondolas either side of the valley and gives access back over to near the top of the Badhofgastein system. The 4 sub resorts have a wide range of runs and you can clock the miles up..... The buses all run on time and are frequent, download the timetable before you go.
Crystal were very good hosts, skis were from Intersport at the bus station, and if your flight from Salzberg leaves after 6 in the evening they run a bus into Salzberg for 24.5 Euros so you can spend about 5 hrs there before going to the airport. A great finish to the holiday.
Enjoyed the resort and hotel and would recommend both.
