Feedback of the year
Dear Thomas and Michaela
Thanks for the email, wow, 10 days…… it feels like yesterday that we were there.
I must say that our holiday in Ellmau was better than words can describe, we absolutely LOVED our holiday and the kids can’t wait to ski again.
From start to finish, everything ran smoothly for us, the bus trip from Salzburg was on time, our welcome at the Hochfilzer was fantastic and Mickaela and Andreas were the most fantastic hosts we have had. Mickaela and Andreas saw to our every need and more and I will HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend your group to our mates. We loved the hotel, Ingrid and her staff were brilliant (maybe one bar man was a bit grumpy) but from the cleaners to the waitresses we were so well taken care of. Our two rooms were great, the one we took was renovated and it was bright and homely. The bed may have been a bit too soft for me but I soon got used to it. The food was to die for, and I can’t think of anything that was served that wasn’t gobbled up and enjoyed with delight especially after a long day on the slopes. The wellness centre was also a highlight and we spent many hours relaxing in the outside jacuzzi in the snow.
The ski hire shop and staff were great and our private instructor was brilliant. Our two girls loved the ski school and three days was the perfect time for them to gain their skills and then promptly beat us down the slopes (even the red) for the next three days.
Our day skiing with Mickaela was a highlight and Andreas was so fantastic with Catherine on day 2 of skiing with the blue slope that turned out to be more “purple” and he was so patient that after that she was skiing down all the reds with such glee.
We enjoyed the evening entertainment and the ski show was also a highlight as well as the cook offs with Ingrid and Mickaela making “kaiserschmell” (??? spelling) (Please send your recipe Mickaela……)
I could go on for ever but, I really enjoyed Austria way more than Livigno and besides the difference in ski slopes and the village, I have to thank Mickaela for making it a special time and being a first class hostess.
I look forward to catching up one day and I will send the iMovie that Josie made of the hotel in a separate email.
We would so love to go skiing again so lets hope this year is a good year for all.
May 2015 be a great one for all of you.
