This wonderful hotel offers a rare combination of high-end standards of comfort with a genuine warm and welcoming atmosphere. The charming Windisch family and their very friendly staff will make you feel at home the minute you arrive. Tastefully decorated rooms, an excellent kitchen, nice outdoor and indoor swimming pools, wellness and fitness facilities, a staff with an eye for detail and a personal approach and of course the beautiful surroundings, dominated by the Wilder Kaiser.... We can't wait to return to this truly feel-good hotel! read hotel review

The bar is a very family friendly hotel, had a very nice and friendly hotel management, is perfect, right on the practice slope and close to the ski lifts, quiet and with beautiful views of the wilder kaiser. The food is excellent, very rich breakfast buffet, delicious lunch buffet and each evening changing, varied meal. The rooms/suites and very nice and tastefully decorated. In our apartment, we even had a private fireplace, very comfortable. The spa/sauna/pool area was very pleasant and varied. It left nothing to be desired.
