The hostess , Eva, is a super example of all that is good about Austrian Gemütlichkeit. So the welcome, attention to detail and feel of the place was right from the start. Skiers can walk to the nearest lift in 2 minutes. The food is wholesome ,typical Austrian and honest. Breakfast is a huge buffet and goes on until 10.Having...

I have been here for dinner before but when my dad asked if I would come skiing with him, he chose the Forsthof as he had been here many times before. This time we have a lovely apartment but the most notable feature is the family who run Forsthof. Their ability to discern, and meet , the needs of their...

We stayed here in the middle of August so this is a late review but have only just got round to it. This is a family run hotel with a great location, it is close to a lot of attractions like Liechhtensteinklamm which is only a 10 minute drive away or many other places. The cable car nearby takes you...

Incredibly family-friendly (they have a playground in the backyard with a swingset, trampoline, etc.). You feel very welcome with kids. The breakfast is delicious, with homemade jam, etc. It's a very warm, welcoming place. And amazing value for the price. Fun hikes and kids' play area in the summer - with bumper boats, mini cars, etc. Skiing right at your...

1 stayed here for a full week last week, with a group of 16 friends, and what a fantastic week it was! This isn't some fancy 4 or 5 star hotel, this is an honest, family run Pension with great rooms, wonderful food and a really friendly atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts, Robert & Eva, and...

I stayed here for four days and would definitely stay again. It's a lovely, family run hotel. The food is excellent and the family can't do enough for you and were good enough to serve our dinner late one evening after we'd come back from the local bar. The hotel is spotlessly clean and nice and close to the ski...

Stayed as a family at the Forsthof hotel for a family Ski holiday over the Christmas break. The family run hotel were very welcoming, the rooms were kept clean and the evening meals were of a high standard. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

This is truly a family restaurant, the hospitality is genuine and warm. we arrived on a night that included a troop of Danes, but the hosts were easily up to the challenge making all of us feel welcome. Lovely home cooked food with the meal of the day ticking all the boxes for a ski dinner. Have already booked a...

The family-run guesthouse Forsthof is situated yards from the ski slopes in Alpendorf. Unlike the frillier hotels nearby, the Forsthof feels genuinely warm and welcoming, with a traditional feel and generous but homely rooms. Home cooked food is presented beautifully and pride is taken in personal service. I recommended this place to my well travelled Grandad and he refuses to...

This was a wonderfully friendly and cosy hotel. The bedrooms and bathrooms were immaculately clean and furnished to a very high standard. The manager, Eva, was always most obliging and nothing was too much trouble for her. Standard of food was very high. I really enjoyed staying there and would gladly return.
