Chalet Hotel Montfort - Lech, Austria
We are sure our many regular guests will agree that this gem of a Chalet Hotel is a superb addition to our range in Lech. It has a lovely ambience from the moment you enter and our team can’t wait to welcome you through its doors. Lech is a picture perfect ski resort with a bustling cosmopolitan village centre and the Montfort is ideally located for both ski access and the full village experience. It is discreetly set back from the main road but within a couple of minutes easy stroll of the chic boutiques, stylish shops and lively après ski bars. The Chalet Hotel Montfort couldn’t be in a better position for the nursery slopes of Lech, being just metres from the Flühen and Schwarzwand drag-lifts. It is here that the children’s ski school runs its classes, as well as being the location for some of the adult lessons.
For more experienced skiers ready to enjoy the vast ski area of the Arlberg, the main lifts are only approx. 4-5 minutes easy walk from the front door. The Rüfikopf Gondola in the village centre offers the chance to window-shop as you pass the many classy shops en route. From the top you can access the Stubenbach slopes, where the lovely open blue and red runs lend themselves to cruising with style, and then on down into the charming village of Zürs. Going the other way from the central hub and over the river, the Schlegelkopf chair-lifts are again just four minutes from the Montfort, from where the tree-lined slopes and delightful lunch spots of Oberlech are easily reached. And for skiers and boarders who like to explore, going higher and further opens up some challenging off-piste itineraries from the far point above Zug, at the Zuger Hochlicht.
At the end of the ski day you can return to the village centre from any of your chosen routes and just stroll the four minutes home, stopping of course for some après ski, Lech-style, on the way.
This Chalet Hotel has been lovingly cared for by its owners, with a modern approach and understanding for traditional Austrian furnishings, colour and style. This harmonious blend of old and new creates an atmospheric and comfortable feel to the rooms and communal areas. The lounge/bar is beautifully decorated with a typically Austrian central feature, a traditional Kachelofen (tiled stove) with its stucco exterior and bench seating - an ideal spot for afternoon tea, canapés and pre or post dinner drinks.
The dining room leads off from the lounge/bar and is light and airy with tasteful wood cladding and attractive furnishings. The room lends itself to convivial dining and the enjoyment of our ‘Culinary Choice’ evening meals. For a Chalet Hotel of this size, the Wellness Spa is a real treat, offering guests numerous ways to relax. Time can be spent in the sauna, steam room or in a warm and soothing spa-bath, or why not all three?! All the bedrooms are tasteful and well-appointed with en suite facilities, plus each have a TV and safe and many also have either a south-facing balcony or terrace with super mountain and resort views.

Meals - Chalet Hotel Montfort, Lech
For six days of the week the staff prepares all your meals.
We pride ourselves on giving you a great breakfast to start your day, with a choice of cereals, fresh fruit and juices, yoghurts, plentiful English tea and good filter coffee, bread freshly baked in our chalets each morning (plus croissants in France), cold meats, cheeses and preserves, and boiled eggs.
This is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself. And to cap it all, we also cook a hot dish of the day for you six days per week, such as sausage and bacon or pancakes with fresh fruit, individually served.
On the chalet hosts’ day off, they will prepare a Continental style breakfast for you, which will be left for you to help yourselves, and that evening you have the chance to eat out in one of the local cafés or restaurants – our resort team will be happy to provide some suggestions. In our Chalet Hotels, a full buffet breakfast (including hot option) is also served on the staff’s day off.
Our Chalet Hotels can also prepare a packed lunch for you on request, at a small local charge. For skiers keen to keep their Euro-spending to an absolute minimum, this is the ideal way to keep your costs down!
The traditional 'welcome home' after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except on the staff's one day off per week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready. As an added benefit for guests in our Chalet Hotels, our chefs prepare a selection of cakes for afternoon tea.
Children's High Tea:
In Chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 13 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children's tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner.
Children's High Tea in Chalet Hotels:
New for 2013/14 Season - Families staying in one of our Chalet Hotels may choose to eat separately (High Tea at 5:30pm) or all dine together at the later adult dinner time if children who have received a child discount pay the meal upgrade charge of £39 at the time of booking only.
Culinary Choice Dinners in Chalet Hotels:
A special feature of our Chalet Hotels is a more extensive culinary experience for our guests. With the greater kitchen facilities of a hotel, our professional chefs are able to offer choices of menu at dinner, generally including lighter as well as more hearty options, and always a vegetarian choice for each course. Guests will be asked to choose their evening meals at breakfast for that evening from a varied daily selection.
Our Chalet Hotel adult-only dinners offer 5 courses, starting with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and a cheese selection to round off your meal in style. All this is then followed by coffee with chocolates to complete your evening's repast! Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.
