We chose to stay in Lech because it was recommended in a book called “1,000 Places to See Before You Die.” It is indeed a pretty Alpine village, which offers a selection of great walks and views.
We paid 190 euro for a very comfortable double room on the front of the hotel. There was a TV with lots of channels (including UK channels not usually found abroad). There was free wi-fi which actually worked (unlike many other places that restrict the bandwidth so that you get only a limited service).
The price also included a fabulous SIX-course meal, which was of a very high standard. (I’ve paid 190 euro just for a meal of similar standard in London.)
The hotel has a spa and a spectacular 15-metre indoor swimming pool, which was not too crowded at the time I chose to do my swim.
But here’s the best bit. They give you a guest visitor card, which entitles you to FREE rides on the various cable cars and chairlifts in the area. Having just stayed in Kitzbuehel, where a single trip for two people on one cable car cost 62 euro, this really is fantastic.
Add in the fact that the staff are friendly and helpful, and this all adds up to a great value bargain. I will certainly stay at Hotel Austria again.More
