Welcome to Chalet Hotel Elisabeth
We are certain that many of our regular guests will love the Elisabeth’s comforts combined with its pretty and convenient setting in this classy, charming resort. Our team look forward to welcoming you to its well-appointed rooms and suites, excellent leisure facilities and superb location.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!
The Elisabeth has an enviable location in the resort, tucked back from the main street and overlooking the river, yet convenient for Lech’s main facilities.
A short 3-4 minutes’ easy stroll on the private road that runs by the river will take you to the heart of the resort with its attractive shops, bars and restaurants and our ski equipment partner shop.
SKI AREA ACCESS
A leisurely 5 minutes’ stroll along the road running parallel to the river leads to the Rufiplatz where skiers can take the Rufikopf gondola to start their day and explore the Stubenbach slopes with its lovely open blue and red runs leading down to charming Zurs.
Alternatively, take the bus from the main street, only 2-3 minutes from the hotel door, to the Schlosskopf chair-lift to enjoy Oberlech’s appealing runs and hospitable lunch spots with sunny panoramic terraces. For beginners the Flühen and Schwarzwand drag lifts are close to the main church and about 8 minutes’ walk, although the efficient free ski shuttle is the easiest way to get here and to the ski school meeting place.
At the end of the day, ski down to the village centre from your chosen route and stroll the five minutes or so home, perhaps stopping to enjoy a warm welcome in one of the hospitable après-ski bars as you pass.
COMFORTABLE HOTEL FACILITIES
The Elisabeth has been owned and lovingly cared for by the Gafgo family for many years and the pride they have taken in the hotel is clear from the moment you enter. Classic Austrian decorative features, such as warm wood panelling and beams, combine with more modern bedroom facilities and quality bathrooms to provide guests with a very comfortable stay, completed by the impressive indoor pool and leisure facilities.
The attractive fireplace with feature chimney is set between the lounge bar, where tea and coffee is available, and the dining room with its smart red upholstered Stube booths and inviting decor. Free Wifi is available in all the public areas to stay in touch with loved ones and share your holiday experiences.
A spacious, heated ski and boot room is on the ground floor with its own convenient separate entrance opening onto the quiet road which leads to the resort centre and the closest lift at Rufiplatz.
The bedrooms are comfortably furnished and are all individually decorated to a high standard. The large twin rooms have a sofa bed (suitable for an adult or child), which in many rooms is set slightly apart from the main Austrian twin bed, through an archway into an alcove area. All have an en suite bath or shower room, TV, hairdryer and safe and some have the benefit of a balcony.
The Elisabeth’s appeal is enhanced by its indoor heated swimming pool (8 x 3 metres) and the adjoining sauna, steam room and relaxation area will be a welcome haven for guests over 13 at the end of each skiing day. This area is also beautifully decorated with a bright fish mural and a large sky light so you can see the stars outside or the snow falling, whilst enjoying the warmth of the pool.
We set very high standards for our cuisine, and train our staff extensively before the season starts, to ensure that you will thoroughly enjoy every meal on your holiday with us. We also take our Health and Safety responsibilities extremely seriously, so all our chalet and Chalet Hotel staff involved in food preparation are trained to the City & Guilds qualification – Level 2 in Food Safety during the pre-season training course. For six days of the week for our 2017/18 season, and five days of the week for 2018/19, our staff prepare all your meals, as described below.
A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so we provide both a hot option, as well as a continental selection with a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea, coffee and bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, cheese and preserves, which is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself. On our staff's day(s) off, only the continental breakfast will be provided.
Our Chalet Hotels can also prepare a packed lunch for you on request, at a small local charge. For skiers keen to keep their Euro-spending to an absolute minimum, this is the ideal way to keep your costs down!
The traditional 'welcome home' after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except on the staff's day(s) off. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready.
2017/18 season cuisine
A three-course adult-only chalet dinner starts with Prosseco, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee to round off your evening. Your choice of complimentary quality red and white wines is unlimited during the meal service, and chilled water is also of course always available.
2018/19 season cuisine
Our hosts will cook you a three-course adult only meal 5 nights a week. Consisting of an appetiser, main course and dessert – with unlimited complimentary red, white and rosé wine during service! The staff nights off are a great opportunity to experience some local restaurents and cuisine. Speak to your resort representative for recommendations and help with reservations.
We are very proud of our wine selection for chalets and Chalet Hotels, which combines crisp and fruity whites with medium to full bodied reds, for a variety of palates. In our Chalet Hotels we also offer an additional light fresh rosé to our guests’ choice. We select our wines in conjunction with our good friends Nicolas and Véronique – the third generation in the Perret family’s fine wine business based in the Savoie. Nicolas is a qualified wine expert, having trained at the prestigious Burgundy Wine University in Beaune. Each season in October, Nicolas & Véronique bring over a new selection for us to sample (someone has to do it!) and together we choose our wines for the coming season, based on our menus and their pure enjoyment factor. Wine is an incredibly subjective and emotive subject, however the feedback we have received from our guests over recent seasons endorses our aims of providing wines to enhance your meal and to suit most tastes. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do!
In Chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 13 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children's tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner.
Families staying in one of our Chalet Hotels may choose to eat separately (High Tea at 5:30pm) or all dine together at the later adult dinner time if children who have received a child discount pay the meal upgrade charge of £39 at the time of booking only.
Vegetarian options are always on our 'Culinary Choice' menu in our Chalet Hotels, and are available in our chalets - just advise us at time of bookings so that we can ensure that our staff can prepare. Other special diets can generally be catered for at a cost of £35 per person per week. Any dietary requirements must be advised to us at the time of booking in order for us to be fully prepared.
All of our chalets and Chalet Hotels will serve a traditional Christmas dinner with a glass of Champagne to start off the evening. This will include roast turkey with all of the trimmings, Christmas pudding, mince pies, crackers and party hats plus a fantastic Alpine atmosphere in which to enjoy the day.
A special festive menu will also be served on New Year’s Eve, alongside the added bonus that many resorts put on fantastic firework displays. A glass of fizz, whilst watching fireworks over the snow-capped peaks of the Alps.. what better way to bring in the New Year!
