  • Absolut Top! Super nettes und aufmerksames Personal, Essen ein Traum und die Zimmer super Sauber. Schöner Wellnessbereich und Talstation fußläufig erreichbar (oder einfach mit dem hoteleigenen Skishuttle). Wir konnten aus privaten Gründen erst einen Tag später anreisen als geplant, auch hier hat sich der Bacherhof als über die Maßen kulant gezeigt. Es gibt nichts auszusetzen!
  • Lage direkt am Bahnhof
  • War soweit rundum alles in Ordnung. Gutes Essen nettes Personal. Dem Dialekt nach zu urteilen war das ganze Personal aus Südtirol. Schöner Pool im 4. Stockwerk. Gibt nichts zu meckern. Guter Service und gute Aktivitäten vom Hotel aus.
