Adults have 3 choices of set evening meal , kids , 1 meal no...

The hotel boasts 4 star but we have had a most unsatisfactory week here. The food is well below what one would expect . Breakfast is exactly the same every day. It is available from 8 till 10, but if items run out after 9 o'clock, they are not replenished. Dinner is also repetitive: soup and salad ( again identical...

Less than 10 minute walk from ski lift and ski bus to adjacent ski areas. Able to keep our skis and boots at hotel adjacent bus stop/ski lift, so no need to trudge in ski...

Breakfast buffet both hot and cold and threecourse evening meal. You make your choice for the evening at breakfast, drinks prices were a pleasant surprise, very...

Our review is balanced between previous reviews of terrible and superb. On plus side the rooms, pools and fabric of the building are good. The room is spacious but note the duvets and pillows are thin. On the negative side the absence of reliable internet throughout hotel is baffling in this century. It is not available in the rooms and...

I go skiing on a annual basis and I have stayed at many lodges and hotels in Austria. This may seem like a biased review but I am just saying my personal experience, there were several things wrong with the hotel, 1. Impolite customer front desk 2. Zero wifi in rooms and next to none in bar area, the wifi...

Visited this hotel with my wife and 5 yr old son for a week. The rooms were nice, big and comfortable. The rooms we were given had a nice little balcony facing the mountains - a wonderful sight to wake up to every morning ! The staff were extremely pleasant - starting from Lorraine at reception to Cristina in the...

The hotel is great, the staff are great, the food was great, the facilities were great. We had a fab time exploring Kufstein Castle, taking a horse sleigh ride, using the 2 pools, having a massage, exploring the shops in Worgl, and checking out the fabulous churches....while the lads enjoyed a good week skiing.

We stayed at the Sonnschein last week and can't recommend it highly enough. My husband and I were with our two teenagers who were in an adjoining room to ours. (Rooms 117&118) The rooms were spacious and both had a small kitchenette area with a fridge which was nice to be able to have a cuppa first thing in the...
