· central location · ski bus stops in front of the hotel · ski down to the Scheffau gondola (conditions permitting)
The Hotel Alpin has been a bit of a family favourite for years. And there are plenty of reasons why.
The location is fantastic - situated opposite Scheffau's baroque church at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser mountains. Under normal conditions you can ski from almost outside the Alpin, right down to the Bergbahn gondola. If the snow is a little more sparse in the village then the ski bus stops right in front of the hotel too - to save the legs for the mountains.
Once back at the hotel tuck into the après ski buffet for a delicious sweet or savoury treat. Highly recommended for the kids is the indoor swimming pool. For adults - there's the wellness area with sauna and steam bath.
Scheffau is fairly quiet in the evenings, so there's a good chance you'll spend a few evenings relaxing back at the Alpin. So, to make sure you get the most value from your stay, you've got inclusive drinks from 6pm - throughout dinner and in the bar - until 9pm. Also there's a self service tea area (with microwave too) open 24/7 so you can help yourself to a cuppa whenever you fancy it.
Speaking of dinner, the food at the Alpin has a great reputation. Breakfast gives you a wide buffet selection, including bacon and eggs, cereals and fresh fruit. In the evenings you can eat in the excellent main dining room where you'll have a good mix of local and international flavours on the menu. Or book a table at the pizzeria - where the pizzas are both delicious and huge.
The Alpin is spread across two buildings - Alpin 1 and Alpin 2. The leisure facilities and main dining room are in Alpin 1, while the reception and the superior rooms are exclusively in Alpin 2.

Austrian twin beds
Austrian twin beds are very common in Central Europe. They’re simply one large bed frame containing two single mattresses, both with separate duvets and linen sets, that cannot be separated. Separate twin beds are less common and can often be head to head beds, rather than side by side, if they are available.
The dining room, swimming pool and Klassik rooms are located in Alpin 1.
The reception, pizzeria and superior rooms are located in Alpin 2.
