Hotel Sonnalp, Kirchenberg - 7 Nights
This excellent chalet style 4 star hotel is located just on the edge of Kirchberg village. The atmosphere is charming with that traditional Austrian wooden décor, rooms are spacious with balconies and the dining is excellent! We have also included free access to their excellent indoor pool, steam room and sauna. Located in a dramatic setting of snow covered Alps - where else would you want to stay for Christmas?
Our tour guide coped well with such a varied group of people. Her knowledge of the area is exceptional and if she has a flaw, it is that she gives too much information for one to absorb quickly. She is very caring of her passengers and that is the most important thing to me. We had an excellent driver, as well as being friendly and helpful.
The facilities, service and amenities of the SonnAlp Hotel were excellent.We thought our coach driver was very good and friendly, and had great local knowledge. Sandra was a great tour manager, knowledgeable and proactive with information. Sandra also added some thoughtful touches highlighting birthdays, organising a Kris Kringle and letting us taste some local treats. The meals in the hotel were consistently good and plentiful - the chef is obviously high quality. We really enjoyed the tour - thank you!

Our tour manager was very professional and caring - I would recommend him highly. A very enjoyable trip and overall a great Christmas experience.
I enjoyed staying in the one place. The hotel staff were every good and it felt like coming home at the end of each day - there was always a warm welcome! While we had no snow, it made getting around very easy. Nice crisp, clear days. Highlight for me was Salzburg - beautiful city and wonderful Christmas markets!
