So what's it like?
Step inside and you’ll feel right at home in the Alpenhotel Tirol. Family-run for generations, the hotel’s lovely staff are just waiting to welcome you with a smile and make your stay unforgettable.
The real highlight at the Tirol is the incredible food. Mornings start with a rich breakfast buffet and each afternoon there are sweet or savoury snacks available in the lounge, including tasty Austrian pastries and cakes. In the evenings, you can savour four delicious courses, made with care using fresh, regional produce, plus a daily salad bar. And you can be sure of perfect wine pairings – your hotelier is a qualified sommelier and has a real passion for Austrian wines.
After dinner, you can relax in the lounge with a drink and chat about the day’s adventures. There’s also a small but charming wellness area, with a Finnish sauna, steam bath, whirlpool and relaxation room.
Ready for bed? Each cosy bedroom is lovingly decorated in traditional Tyrolean style, with wooden panelling, pops of colour and comfy beds. They’ve got all the comforts you need, including bathrobes, WiFi and a safe. Larger double rooms even have a south-facing balcony, for making the most of those views.
When you want to get out and explore or hit the slopes, it’s just a couple of minutes’ walk to the village centre and the ski bus stop, and a 5-minute bus ride to the lifts. Ischgl is 10km down the valley, a short trip on the ski bus if you want a wider range of runs or some livelier après.
Near the centre of peaceful Galtür, the hotel is a short walk from all of the restaurants, cafés and shops, as well as the pretty church. It's surrounded by views of the snowy peaks, and there are cross-country tracks that start just behind the hotel. Buses to the slopes run approximately every 20 minutes in peak season, and take just 6 minutes to get to the Galtur ski area, or 14 minutes to the Silvrettabahn in Ischgl. Use the Alpkoglbahn gondola, Birkhahnbahn chairlift and Soppalift drag lift to get up the hill, and cruise back on a range of red runs, or Blue 3.

Alpenhotel Tirol is located up a fairly steep driveway - approximately 30-40 metres in length. You'll need to walk up the hill with your luggage on arrival, as the coach can't get up there, but our team are usually on hand to make things easier. To save tackling the hill in ski boots, the Alpenhotel has an agreement with a nearby hire shop, where you can leave your ski equipment free of charge for the duration of your stay.
All rooms have a hairdryer, safe, satellite TV and bathrobes.

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.

Please be advised that fire safety standards in Austria differ to those in the UK and Ireland, and on occasion you may be in a hotel where the fire escape is in the form of an external ladder and/or you may be required to evacuate via another bedroom. Please ensure that you familiarise yourself with the exits and procedures in your hotel on arrival and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact a member of reception or our resort staff.
The driveway to the Alpenhotel is narrow, meaning our coach has limited access to it. Therefore, the coach will drop you at the bottom of the driveway, where you'll have a short 1-minute uphill walk from the road to the entrance to the hotel. Make sure you wear some sturdy shoes and warm clothing - it can get a bit snowy underfoot.
