Welcome to Chalet Hotel Hermann in the snow-sure resort of Sölden. Chalet Hotel Hermann has one of the most scenic locations, sitting above the town centre, within the district of See, and with several easy options for ski access. The free public bus number 56 departs at regular intervals only metres away every morning until 10:30, ferrying skiers to the Gaislachkogl gondola for quick access to the whole ski area, and returning to the hotel from 14:45 to 17:00 every afternoon. In good conditions, experienced skiers can walk about 350m from the hotel and take a ski track linking to the Gigi red run 21 and the base of the Giggijoch lift, which swiftly connects to the entire ski area and links to both the glaciers.
For those seeking to soak up the lively atmosphere of Solden’s centre a 5 minute walk leads to the modern funicular lift, which provides quick and free access to the town all day and operates until 11pm.
The lounge area in the Chalet Hotel Hermann was updated to create an inviting and comfortable area with several sofas and chairs. Doors lead off here to the large terrace, an ideal spot for indulging in afternoon tea on brighter days.The dining room is light and spacious with traditional Austrian style seating, as well as regular tables and chairs. The bar is most definitely the focal point of the hotel, being central in the building and buzzing with a lively and welcoming atmosphere.
All the bedrooms within the Chalet Hermann are a good size and have their own en suite facilities, with either shower or bath, some of which have the retro-tiling much beloved by Austrian architects, and others which are more modern. All of them have a flat screen TV and most also have a balcony or terrace. The Wellness area in the Hermann boasts a sauna and steam room with power showers and a relaxation area – recommended for easing aching muscles, and unwinding pre-dinner.
The Chalet Hotel also has an incredible ‘Panorama’ wing, which houses its own ski room and is just steps from the main Hermann building. The ‘Panorama’ wing contrasts the traditional adjoining hotel with design and interiors which are stylish and contemporary. In the ‘Panorama’ wing the bedrooms all have balcony or terrace with fantastic views and are all en suite with showers and wcs that have been tastefully designed with clean classic lines and smart fittings throughout. Guests staying in the Panorama wing will enjoy their meals in the Hermann which is literally just next door and share all its facilities.
The Wellness area in the Hermann boasts a sauna and steam room with power showers and a relaxation area – the ideal spot in which to ease aching muscles, unwind and completely relax.
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. There is a continental breakfast is every morning and a breakfast hot option, afternoon tea and evening dinners are provided for six days of the week in both chalets and Chalet Hotels.
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 day off, only the continental breakfast will be provided.
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 day off. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready.
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!
In chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 11 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.
In the evenings our chefs will cook you a three-course meal six nights a week. Before your meal, there is a glass of prosecco and canapés served in the bar. The three courses consist of an appetiser, main course and dessert – with unlimited complimentary red, white and rosé wine during service! There is also an option for vegetarians.
There is a choice of appetiser, main course and dessert or cheese and your order is usually taken in the morning and then is served to your table.
On the staff one night off per week just a continental breakfast is provided and it’s a great opportunity for you to experience some local restaurants in your resort. Speak to your resort representative or Chalet Hotel Manager for recommendations and help with reservations.
Vegetarian options are available in our properties – 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. Our Chalet Hosts will discuss your dietary requirements with you upon arrival to the chalet or Chalet Hotel.
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!
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. 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!

No resort with the tagline ‘Think Big, Think Solden’ is likely to be dull. With lively après-ski it’s an Austrian resort that definitely packs a punch... but it’s not all about the parties – with 2 glaciers, 2 mountains and over 140km of routes there’s more than enough to explore.
