Don't get me wrong, the Sonnhof is a good hotel. We stayed there for 4 days and it was nice and comfy. However, given the 4 star rating and the pricing I am just used to a bit more. It is in the details, fair enough, but details matter. The rooms are nice and spacious, the interior design ok, yet somewhat dark for my personal taste. Add to that, the the lighting of the room was not sufficient, the room had a somewhat cavelike feel to it. The sleeping experience is definitely not for me. The mattresses were too soft, the pillows floppy and flat. The personnel really tries hard and is really nice and helpful, yet at times seemed a bit overwhelmed. I'd attribute that to the extraordinary CoVid situation, which definitely makes things harder. So, in essence, a good hotel which is a little bit overpriced with regard to what they deliver.

Hotel Sonnhof at Alpendorf is the best hotel ever!! We go there for about 20 years now, in winter and summer, and we are absolutely sure this is the best present you can give yourself and your partner. The location, the food, the staff, the rooms!! After your first visit you are addicted, You’re welcome! We mostly come in March, but not in 2020, because of the Corona situation. We were there in March 2019 and the 18 years before that.

this is a lovely hotel with excellent spa amenities and very helpful staff. our room came with a balcony and a beautiful view of the mountains. the spa massage is done by a male message therapist and free yoga class is provided. Breakfast is excellent with a wide variety of selections. However, the dinner is mediocre. It was quite a let down.

What a surprise! Had to take a train from Schwarzach St. Veit at 4 AM, and the only feasible and reasonably comfortable way to reach it was to stay over night. This hotel is a total treasure. Hosts go out of their way to accommodate you, staff is charming, hotel is well designed, with a welcoming spa area and comfy rooms. But what deserves another 5 Stars is the cuisine. It's of the finest and of most affordable nature.

The number one incredible thing was the spa area - pools , saunas of all kinds , jacuzzi, waterbeds. Amazing. They don’t admit small children so it was quiet. Breakfast was absolutely excellent. The room was well appointed and modern. Note that Alpendorf is not a real village, you’ll need a car to explore the area. Or - just stay at the pools :-)
