Hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl Reviews
Just returned today (01/02/14) from 7 days holiday. The hotel was very good, both for accommodation and food and the ease of skiing. Would visit again provided I did not have to travel on Monarch Airlines as their commitment to customers does seem questionable. A quality holiday experience, apart from the airline. My good marks below are for the hotel and facilities.
Apres Ski: 5/5
Accommodation & Value: 5/5
The location of the hotel is the biggest attraction which is why we have been coming here for the last 7 years. It's right next to the main lifts and the ski shop is underneath the hotel and next to the boot room so no effort required at all. The staff are excellent and very friendly, particularly in the restaurant where they also serve superb food. The ski shop feels like an integral part of the hotel and the staff there are very relaxed about damage to skis and the gear is always new. Prices are high but then where isn't in a skiing resort? Buy drinks in the supermarket next door and drink them in your room if you want to save money. My only criticisms are that the hotel can be very hot at times, they allow smoking in the bar which I dislike, the rooms are not overly luxurious (but I don't come skiing to stay in the room). We have in the past found that organisation of rooms for groups challenges them. Even if you email in advance, it doesn't seem to make any difference so you have to assert yourself on the day to get what you want. Overall, with the excellent Obergurgl snow record, it takes some beating.
