Having never done a short ski break this was a bit of a leap of faith but it worked out brilliantly. From Salzburg to the hotel took only one hour 30 minutes and once inside the communal area's and especially the spa and pool were massive and stunning. Hilarious to read on here of a couple having sex in the sauna I'm sure that's not standard, if it is we missed the show!. We spent every afternoon in the pool and spa and felt very very relaxed after a day skiing and ready for dinner. This was a huge deal and my advice is dress up a little for the better tables, they seem to usher less smart looking diners into a second room. Five courses is great for the short time we were there but I wouldn't have wanted so much had it been a full 7 night stay. The meals we ate were all well cooked and beautifully presented.
Our room was large and had a lovely sitting area and big windows looking out over the front towards the mountains. All of the staff that we encountered were extremely nice and courteous and we will defiantly do another short ski in Austria. We booked our own flights and got skiline to book the hotel and transfer which was a shuttle service although we also had the option of a private one. Some of the people we spoke to who had visited Gastien before said the shuttles generally work very well. Highly recommended hotel and resort.
