“Wonderful Relais & Chateaux in Tirol”
Reviewed 24 July 2009

We spend 8 nights begin March 2009 where we booked a room of type "Ring". It is still one open room but the salon is visually separated from the bedroom. Here are our remarks of our stay :

We liked:

* Big hotel in the style of « Austrian kitsch » as another member described. Anyway, everything is nicely decorated and there are a lot of references to hunting (that’s why this hotel is called Jagdhof)
* Wonderful spa & wellness section. The sauna area is just wonderful with more than 10 different saunas, steam baths, relaxation rooms, etc. A lot of them are open from noon, otherwise everything is open from 3pm. The best SPA I have ever seen.
* Wonderful heated pool inside and outside (linked together!). Swimming outside in the evening when it is snowing is something you must experience once in your life.
* Thé, drinks and fruit is for free in the wellness area.
* Breakfast: home made bread & patisserie. Large choice but it is the almost the same every day.
* Lunch: the kitchen is open at noon so you can eat in the hotel if you decide to stay inside.
* Dinner: you can enjoy every day a gastronomic 5-plate supper. You can choose the dishes you like from the menu. There is also a restaurant rated 15/20 by GaultMillau but you have to reserve a table. You get a reduction in this restaurant if you are on half-board. Otherwise, there are not many restaurants in the neighbourhood so you better stick with the hotel supper.
* Very good choice of local & foreign wine. Prices are correct.
* All personnel is very attentful and they try to make your stay as best as possible.
* Parking: some parking places outside and you can rent a closed box too.
* Clean & dry ski room where you can store your stuff (boots are heated!).
* Room: very spacious with a lot of closets, clean, a big dressing, free safe, big bathroom, balcony, lot of towels. Just pay attention not to have a room not to close to the bar as it is quite noisy.
* The family owners are present in the hotel (!) and they check with you if everything is right.

We didn’t like:

* Restaurant: We had to change 2 times to find finally a good place to eat without the cold air-conditioning blowing cold air on your head and giving you headaches after 1h (same for my wife and myself). But the hotel takes care of this and you can either choose your eating place or even better, ask a place in the small restaurant which is much quieter in the evening. The big dinner restaurant is quite noisy due to all the guests and waiters.
* Reservation: a mistake was done and we did not get our reserved room the first night. We had to change the day after. The hotel tried different solutions but in the end, they gave us a better room for one night and a bottle of champagne, but this unfortunately did not compensate for the room change you must do after one night. This messed up quite good the start of our holidays.
* Room: the “traditional farm oven” does not give much heat and we asked for an extra mobile heater in the room. Also, the Jacuzzi in some rooms is really a gadget as you have one of the biggest European SPA in the hotel. Do not bother about this bubble bath. No flat screen display but a DVD player. Peignoir & slippers are available but we got two ladies peignoir so I was looking a bit silly walking around with my too-small peignoir. I think I could have asked for another one I guess. Slippers are not changed during your stay as they get quite dirty if you use them in the pool and sauna area. Better take your personal slippers with you.
* Neustift: the ski slopes are quite a long way from this hotel and they can be reached only by car or shuttle. There are some slopes in Neustift but they are rather difficult and there are only a couple of them. The location of the hotel is on the outside of the town so it is very quiet.

Overall opinion: As we had very bad weather during our stay, we stayed most of the time in the hotel (pool & spa). We liked it so much that we stayed one extra night! This place is really good. It is not a 5-star Palace but still a very good ski-tourism hotel. The price is quite high, but you cannot go wrong with this Relais & Chateaux hotel in the Tirol mountains!

My son had been here in 2007 along with his cousin. My nephew raved about it, calling it a "Viking Palace". While he may have missed the mark in terms of ethnicity, he was spot on in describing the Jagd as outstanding. We were here for two nights in December, complete with all the decorations and senses of the season. The personal touch of Armin and Tina make you truly feel like guests in their home. The food was delicious and plentiful, served by an efficient and engaging staff. We even were given a private tour of the wine cellar. Our room was warm and inviting. The little touches like a drink upon arrival and a plate of various cookies left in your room only add to the sense you are family. While we were there it snowed one whole day. Just to relax in the spa watching the snow fall, reading and napping, taking advantage of the spa amenities, and seeing the people playing in the outdoor pool was an experience I do not think I will ever forget. Here I am a month later wondering when I can return.

From arrival to departure I would recommend the Jagdhof to all as the perfect escape.

We stayed here for February 1/2 term 2008 with our 2 children aged 7 and 10 and also with the grandparents. The hotel is lovely, room great, food fabulous, heated boot room great but could do with 2 lockers for 4 people. Pool & spa also great. Only draw back is the fact that you have to get the mini bus to the slopes, but they were always on time and drivers very helpful.

We have been staying at the Jagdhof for many years. We started in our thirties. Continue in our forties. We will return until we can no longer return. The Jagdhof encompasses all that elegance and the simple art of living - beautifully - can embrace. I say that not as a nostalgic, but as some one who has had the fortune to stay in some of the finest resorts and hotels in America and some of the wonderful resorts, auberges and Gasthauses in Europe -- and also in some of the most basic on both continents. There are few places and spaces in this world which perfectly bring together well-being, silence, relaxation and nourishment in a wonderful setting. We knew the Jagdhof when Armin's parents instilled their vision. We watched it in transition. We witness it now. It is a place that honors its traditions, yet respects the movement of time and culture. World class spa. World class cuisine. World class wine. Beauty. Elegance. Inspiration. Respite. Integrity. Respect. Honor for ones place in life - rich or poor. Mutual respect for personal space. I cannot think of a place where these ideals are honored more greatly. Armin - Tina -- we saw your kids and little ones -- growing into beautiful adults. we have witnessed you with your guests many nights. Raised a glass occasionally with you. Watched you with your staff and your neighbors. You are a gift to us all. May we encourage any of you to visit this treasured space in Austria.

We were here in a short holiday in late april for skiing.The Gletcher ski area is excelent,with long slopes and medium difficulty,excelent rental and depo conditions.Snow was excelent.The only complain is that they do not prepare the slopes perfect,like in other parts of tyrol.
Jagdhof hotel is a wonderful small family run hotel,situated in a peacefull place 10 min walk to the center of the village,which is very small but clean an well keeped.We have a apartment zwolfer,in the new building,which is very large with separate toilete and bathroom,sleaping area with double bed and a sitting area with sofa and table and a small fire place.It also have a wonderful big balcony with great views of the glacier and village.The entire hotel is very warm and friendly,making you feel like home.It is very clean and in excelent condition.The pool area is inside and also outside ,conected,warm water and fitted with cascades and whirlpools.The wellnes is large and included a lot of posibilites.Both breakfast and dinner was excelent and the service was incredible.CONGRATULATIONS!!
A nice touch is that the owners are allover presents,give you indications and speeak with you.Also on check in and out they are there thanking you for the visit and welcome.
EXCELENT!

Stayed at the Jagdhof for a one-week ski trip in February 2007 with the entire family (mom, dad, 2 girls aged 12 and 4, plus our au pair). The interior of the hotel is beautiful (common areas, restaurants, rooms, spa/pool). I disagree with previous reviewers in that the overall style is indeed traditional Austrian, but not "Kitsch" in any way. We stayed in a family suite (3BR with living area) which was beautiful and quiet with a lovely view. Service was very good and food at the hotel was excellent (outstanding breakfast buffet, great multi-course dinners).
The only fault I can find with the hotel is the location: it is indeed in the middle of the village (although there are some mountain views from the rooms) and requires a 20-30 minute bus transfer to the base station of the main ski area. On the other hand, Neustift is easily reached in about 20-30 minutes from the Innsbruck airport which offers direct flights to a number of European cities.
All in all, I would highly recommend (unless you are an avid skier who wants to spend every minute on the slopes).

This was our 4th trip to The Jagdhof in 4 summers. What brings us back is the sheer beauty of the location, the excellent and friendly staff and owners, great rooms, wonderful relaxing meals and a spa/vitalwelt unlike anything we have experienced in the US. The Seraglio mud bath chamber for 2 is our favorite and well priced. Each visit we have noticed nice changes and upgrades. The hotel got beautiful new outdoor funiture in 2006, there was much more printed information in the rooms in english, they got new safes, we loved the Hawiian music in some of the steam rooms, and dinner in the gourmet room Hubertus Stube was exceptional. The food in the main dining room continues to be exellent. The wine list is extensive and their prices on nice wines over 100 euro were very fair compared to other hotels in Europe. While normally not nightlife people, we have enjoyed all the bands and different pianists in the bar. We were given SelesJunior Suite # 103 in both summer 2006 and 2007. It is in a great location with a wrap around balcony and views from the bedroom, living room and bathroom of the glacier, the Jadghof's grounds and all the surrounding mountains. This is a wonderful place to come to get away and relax. Neustift and the surrounding villages have great lifts and the alpine waking to the various huts is very scenic. We've been told by guests that if we think it is beautiful in summer, we should come in winter. We are returning to The Jagdhof in March, this time briging our family and our friends. I'm sure we'll have another great stay!
