I don’t think any of us had any complaints about our week here! There were nice views from several of the bedrooms. By chance my husband and I had the nicest room, it was spacious enough that we could all gather for a drink in the evenings. The rest of the chalet hotel, dining and living areas etc. were all fi... + more

We liked the hotel and thought it was pretty good. It was well located and the staff were very friendly. Food was generally very good, not traditional Austrian but “Chalet haute cuisine”. Our bedroom was fine, with a traditional feel. We liked the bar, reception and social areas which were more traditional th... + more

I would say the chalet was average, but the staff very friendly. The facilities were basic and the food average/poor. We loved the fact they were relaxed, and we were lucky most the other guests had children who all played together. It is convenient for the ski school too. + more

The staff were excellent and the rooms we had were terrific. The food was very nice indeed, we always had a choice and they asked us what we wanted for supper in the mornings, the whole system worked really well. Breakfast was super too. The location was brilliant for youngsters as it’s right next to the nurse... + more

Superb week! The chalet hotel was fine, adequate for what I wanted and what I paid for. I wouldn’t have wanted to pay more for it, but got a good discount. The best part of the week was the food. Location was brilliant, a bit of a walk but generally OK. The company was fine. + more

If you've heard of the twelve 'must ski' resorts or the 'Best of the Alps' list, that may be why you're looking to book a visit to Lech. It's one of the classics and this traditionally built yet modern and stylishly outfitted hotel is set at the base of the nursery slopes, which is ideal for all those first tim... + more

Welcome to the Chalet Hotel Montfort, Lech, Austria
We are sure our many regular guests will agree that this gem of a Chalet Hotel is a superb addition to our range in Lech. It has a lovely ambience from the moment you enter and our team can’t wait to welcome you through its doors.

‘Location, location, location!’
Lech is a picture perfect ski resort with a bustling cosmopolitan village centre and the Montfort is ideally located for both ski access and the full village experience. It is discreetly set back from the main road but within a couple of minutes easy stroll of the chic boutiques, stylish shops and lively après ski bars.

Excellent Hotel Facilities
This Chalet Hotel has been lovingly cared for by its owners, with a modern approach and understanding for traditional Austrian furnishings, colour and style. This harmonious blend of old and new creates an atmospheric and comfortable feel to the rooms and communal areas.

The lounge/bar is beautifully decorated with a typically Austrian central feature, a traditional Kachelofen (tiled stove) with its stucco exterior and bench seating – an ideal spot for afternoon tea, canapés and pre or post dinner drinks.
The dining room leads off from the lounge/bar and is light and airy with tasteful wood cladding and attractive furnishings. The room lends itself to convivial dining and the enjoyment of our ‘Culinary Choice’ evening meals.

For a Chalet Hotel of this size, the Wellness Spa is a real treat, offering guests numerous ways to relax. Time can be spent in the sauna, steam room or in a warm and soothing spa-bath, or why not all three?!

All the bedrooms are tasteful and well-appointed with en suite facilities, plus each have a TV and safe and many also have either a south-facing balcony or terrace with super mountain and resort views.

Ski Area Access
The Chalet Hotel Montfort couldn’t be in a better position for the nursery slopes of Lech, being just metres from the Flühen and Schwarzwand drag-lifts. It is here that the children’s ski school runs its classes, as well as being the location for some of the adult lessons.

For more experienced skiers ready to enjoy the vast ski area of the Arlberg, the main lifts are only approx. 4-5 minutes easy walk from the front door. The Rüfikopf Gondola in the village centre offers the chance to window-shop as you pass the many classy shops en route. From the top you can access the Stubenbach slopes, where the lovely open blue and red runs lend themselves to cruising with style, and then on down into the charming village of Zürs.

Going the other way from the central hub and over the river, the Schlegelkopf chair-lifts are again just four minutes from the Montfort, from where the tree-lined slopes and delightful lunch spots of Oberlech are easily reached. And for skiers and boarders who like to explore, going higher and further opens up some challenging off-piste itineraries from the far point above Zug, at the Zuger Hochlicht.

At the end of the ski day you can return to the village centre from any of your chosen routes and just stroll the four minutes home, stopping of course for some après ski, Lech-style, on the way.

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Hotel Montfort

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.

Breakfast

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.

Piste Picnics

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!

Afternoon Tea

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.

Dinner

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.

Our Quality Wines

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!

Children's High Tea

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.

Children's High Tea in Chalet Hotels

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 and Special Diets

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.

Christmas and New Year

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!

NB: Next year chalet catering will be 5 nights catered not 6, for winter 2018/2019 (i.e. guests eat out 2 nights, if staying in this property).

We update Chalet Hotel Montfort's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

This package holiday to Chalet Hotel Montfort in Lech, Austria departs Sunday 7th January 2018, for a 7 night stay on a "catered chalet" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

Known as one of the classic ski resorts, Lech is part of the ‘Best of the Alps’ group. Also crowned 2004’s Prettiest Village in Europe, it oozes traditional alpine charm with the bonus of a world-class ski area and some of the best snow in the Alps. The resort’s superior status in the skiing world has made it a favourite of the rich and Royal for decades – Princess Di used to ski here and sharing a chairlift with Tom Cruise or Vladimir Putin is a real possibility... The uber-posh town has an exclusive feel,...
This is famously the setting of the hilarious skiing scene in ‘Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason’, although you won’t have any Bridget-like disasters on the piste if you take advantage of the excellent instruction and beginner slopes on offer. You’ll find some lovely nursery slopes behind the village church (you can’t miss it) and up around Oberlech to practice on until you feel confident enough to take the Schlegelkpof and explore some brilliant gentle terrain for skiers and snowboarders. With oodles of...
Jägertee (rum, black tea and spices) is the local’s drink of choice, making it a must-try when you’re back from the slopes. Most of the nightlife here reflects Lech’s status as a first class resort, with venues emitting high-end and exclusive feel. While it doesn’t have the same legendary reputation as the après in neighbouring St Anton, you can still find a brilliant variety of venues offering a mix of the traditional and contemporary – chop and change between traditional tea dances and late night clubbi...

"No complaints!"

Group from Minster, Kent
4/ out of 5
I don’t think any of us had any complaints about our week here! There were nice views from several of the bedrooms. By chance my husband and I had the nicest room, it was spacious enough that we could all gather for a drink in the evenings. The rest of the chalet hotel, dining and living areas etc. were all fine. The food was good; you always had a choice of meals although sometimes the presentation didn’t reflect what you thought you’d ordered… there were always clean plates at the end of the mealtime though! To get to the skiing, some people plodded up the hill with their ski boots on whereas we hired skis and were given locker space in the hire shop which was near the first lift. This worked out well as I wouldn’t have fancied trudging up in ski boots.

"Nice hotel in a good position"

Francis, Devon

We liked the hotel and thought it was pretty good. It was well located and the staff were very friendly. Food was generally very good, not traditional Austrian but “Chalet haute cuisine”. Our bedroom was fine, with a traditional feel. We liked the bar, reception and social areas which were more traditional than smart. One thing they need to fix is the steps from the ski room up to the outside. There’s a flight of concrete steps that are crumbing away and it’s not really safe to go up and down in ski boots, at least one in our party tripped while we were there.

The staff were excellent and the rooms we had were terrific. The food was very nice indeed, we always had a choice and they asked us what we wanted for supper in the mornings, the whole system worked really well. Breakfast was super too. The location was brilliant for youngsters as it’s right next to the nursery runs – my daughter in law was very happy. We were there with some other families and it was just like staying in a friend’s home, it was so sociable and lovely to have the children running around together.

Superb week! The chalet hotel was fine, adequate for what I wanted and what I paid for. I wouldn’t have wanted to pay more for it, but got a good discount. The best part of the week was the food. Location was brilliant, a bit of a walk but generally OK. The company was fine.

"Sno brainer, base of slopes in world class resort"

Sno man, Sno Staff
5/ out of 5
If you've heard of the twelve 'must ski' resorts or the 'Best of the Alps' list, that may be why you're looking to book a visit to Lech. It's one of the classics and this traditionally built yet modern and stylishly outfitted hotel is set at the base of the nursery slopes, which is ideal for all those first time skiers and families taking children to learn to ski. The location is superb, set quietly off the main road and still within a short walking distance of the village centre. The facilities and service provided is top notch, making the whole experience one you will not forget.
