The 5-star Hotel Gasthof Post in Lech is a Relais & Chateaux hotel. From its beautiful old tiled Austrian stoves to its antique furniture and hand-painted facades as well as a Michelin-starred restaurant, it is stand-out and utterly charming. And all this with state of the art contemporary spa facilities.
Like so many original post houses throughout Austria, the Gasthof Post started life as just that. Such heritage gives the thoroughly modernised and extended hotel a genuine old world charm which seems to seep out of its fabric. Ambiance and soul like this cannot be created overnight. From its beautiful old tiled Austrian stoves to its antique furniture and hand-painted facades, the Gasthof Post is the real deal. Today it is a 5-star member of the reputed Relais & Chateaux hotels.
Its position near the Rufikopfbahn lift and its Post bar, which has been a popular haunt over time for skiers apres or guests before dinner and after, makes the Gasthof Post a popular choice for discerning winter sports enthusiasts.
The beautiful rooms and suites are individually appointed each with great charm and taste. Well chosen fabrics combine with select furniture to create a really special kind of elegance and comfort. And the bathrooms likewise.
Dining at the Gasthof Post is also special. Depending on whether you are half-board or a la carte, guests have a good choice of dining options. At the top end Michael Spirk and his team show true class in their Michelin-starred Post Stuben, which also carries two Gault Millau toques. Also worthy of mention is the Kutscherstube, which serves traditional Austrian cuisine.
From the old world to the new - the stunning timber structure adjacent houses the Post’s state of the art spa and wellness facilities. You can swim against the current in the heated outdoor panoramic pool looking out at the Omeshorn or slide with the kids in the indoor. Stunning contemporary designs bring sauna and steam baths to life along with a relaxation lounge and beauty and massage treatment rooms.
There is a tendency in describing some of Lech’s leading hotels as ‘stand-out’ and yet with great variety of style they deserve this accolade. The Post is most assuredly in this elite group: it is simply and utterly charming.
