Reviewed 21 July 2015

We stayed here in 2000, and again now in 2015. Upon arrival we were happily surprised as the hotel had been renovated a lot.

Hotel lobby and restaurant are really very nice. Our room was perfect, with hard wooden floors (which I always prefer) and very quiet (on the 4th floor).

I heard the welness and pool area will also be renovated later this year, which would
make this hotel infrastructure, which is already very nice, even better.

Where this hotel makes a difference is during dinner, The food and service is really exceptional. If you like food, you will love this place.

For bikers (like us), the hotel is also perfect. Bikes can park in the large underground garage. Our car and trailer was parked in the underground garage on the other side of the street. All free of charge.

So far the (very) positive....

Then some remarks:
As this is a family hotel, there are a lot of children running around and playing. This can be a little annoying when eating outside on the terrace (didn't annoy me, but I can see other people not liking this).
This can also affect the quietness of you room, of your room is located right above the terace (our wasn't).

There is not only a family of kids, but also a family of flies ;-)
This IS annoying. I can understand there is no way to avoid flies outside on the terrace (we are in the mountains, between the fields). However something really needs to be done about the flies in the restaurant. This sometimes ruins another perfect dinner experience.
I guess this partly depends on where you sit. We sad next to the window and sometimes about 10 flies were circling around us.

Overall conclusing: very nice stay. Very Very good food. Not so nice flies.

Room Tip: rooms 118-121 on the fourth floor are all quiet (we had 119)

The hotel has a great location for skiing, with the slopes just a short free bus ride away. There is even a smaller slope directly located at the hotel. Furthermore, bigger skiing areas of Warth, Damüls and Lech are just a short bus ride away.
The hotel was excellent. Good food and service. The family room was well designed. It has a good sauna and pool for the kids to play in. Furthermore, the kid's playroom and the free transport to to slopes was appreciated.
The 4 bathrobes in the room on arrival, with the correct sizes for the children shows the attention to details of the hotel.
I would recommend this hotel for families wanting to ski in a relaxed environment

This was a fantastic hotel, the staff were excellent and most spoke very good English or helped with our poor German. The hotel offers great facilities for bikers with a garage for the bikes to be parked in and a jet wash. We opted for the luxury package which included afternoon coffee & cakes and a 5 course evening meal, food was excellent and highly recommend.
for bikers the area is fantastic with excellent roads. We found this hotel was very good value for money and the staff and owners were very helpful.

We stayed at Alpen Hotel Post for an entire week.

We are motorcyclists and we particularly appreciated the excellent facilities offered for bikers as well as the great motorbike circuit tips provided by the hotel boss, Christian. One can also find several binders in the hotel lobby with lots of tours to discover.
The Bregenzerwald area is a motorcyclist's dream, with clean roads, beautiful landscapes and lots of bends...

The hotel: very modern, comfortable and ideally situated in the heart of Au. Although it is on the main street, it is not noisy at all, as trafic remains very reasonable.
Our room was light, big enough for 2, with a balcony and a large bathroom.
The hotel bar and restaurant are particularly nice and cosy.

The restaurant: we opted for the half-board.

At first, we were a bit anxious to eat in the same restaurant every evening ("what if the food is not good..?") and also about the fact that it was a 5-course dinner each time.

But as from day 1, we did not regret our choice at all: the food was truly excellent, always nicely presented and colorful, and the size of the portions was very reasonable, so that we never felt full at the end of the dinner. Every morning, we found a leaflet on our breakfast table, with 3 main dishes and 3 desserts to choose from for the evening meal, and for 8 days, we were never offered the same choice (congratulations to the chef for that as well). There was always a choice of meat, fish and a vegetarian dish. The food was very varied, fresh, and cooked with a creative touch. Another important point: there was never too much sauce or fat at all, we found that dishes were prepared in a very healthy way.

Beside a couple of small starters, you also always have access to a freshly prepared salad buffet, with a selection of about ten different items. Fantastic.

Good Austrian wines selection (also by the glass).

So as one has probably gathered, we were quite impressed with the quality of the half-board.

As impressive was the breakfast buffet, as fresh and varied as the rest: fresh fruits, various yoghurts, muesli, breads, jams, juices, local cheeses and cured meats, smoked salmon...and good coffee.
Everything to start your day the best way, especially when you are a sporty person (the hotel also attracts many mountain bikers and hikers).

The hotel is also known to be very welcoming for families with small children. The atmosphere can therefore be quite lively at times, especially on the outisde playground situated next to the terrace, or sometimes during dinner time, but, as a couple, this has never proved to be of any disturbance to us and all went fine. Most importantly, as of 9:30/10 pm - a reasonable time - children were all asleep and our nights were very quiet.

Everyday, lots of various activities (many of them free) are offered - check the week's calendar at the desk. We also particularly appreciated Au's outdoor swimming pool, situated at about 10 minutes on foot from the hotel (entrance is free if you have the Bregenzerwald Card, provided if you stay more than 3 nights at the hotel. This card also offers free access to several local cable cars and buses).

Last but not least, the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, always keen to answer your queries and advise you.

We enjoyed our time at Hotel Alpen Post very much and we would definitely like to come back.

This hotel offers bikers everything that is listed on the web site . Good location ,great food and comfortable accommodation. We were very pleased with the security for our bikes and It is in easy reach of all the great roads.
The bad points
We did not feel welcome for the duration on our stay. The kids running around and screaming in the restaurant spoiled our stay .If do stay do not have room 205 or a room over looking the seating area as you cannot relax due to ping pong, cart racing ,and shouting going on everyday.
I would not recommend this hotel if you want to ride your bikes and the relax when you return.

Room Tip: Do not have a room facing the seating area,Ask for another table away from the half board / kinderga...
