It was my first ski holiday and I absolutely loved it! And the hotel we stayed contributed a lot to this great ski holiday. The Waldrand hotel is very conveniently located in Scheffau, which is about a few mins walk to the shuttle bus to the ski resort. The room was basic, but kept very clean. One of the nicest things about our room is that it has its own balcony looking out to the snow mountain, and we spent a lot of time there in the afternoon drinking beer and chatting away happily.
George the landlord and his family made sure our stay was very hospitable. The food they provided at breakfast and dinner were simply delightful. Especially the dinner, which was always something we could look forward to at the end of days of skiing, was a wonderful 4 course meal, and everything was homemade too! They actually handpicked blackberries to garnish the dessert one night and I still miss the clear soup with pancake.
The only thing I wish they had was a hot tub or Jacuzzi, so we could relax at the end of a hard day. They do have a sauna room though which I never used. Also it's best to go with a group of friends or bring some board games with you, coz Scheffau is a quiet little town with nothing much to do at night.
Overall, Waldrand offers good value for money, with a real touch of home feel.
