In the centre of Bad Hofgastein, the Hotel Norica is a great pick if you’re looking to pack in the pampering. You can use the Alpentherme Spa whenever you fancy for free – and it’s linked to the hotel by an underground tunnel, so you don’t even need to go outside to get there. Location-wise, it’s an 8-minute walk to the nearest lift, or hop on the ski bus that stops outside and save the legs for the slopes instead.
Warm lighting, neutral walls and splashes of red in the furniture give this hotel a modern, elegant feel. Sit back and relax on the communal areas’ plush armchairs. You can enjoy a drink from the bar, plan tomorrow’s day on the slopes or look out of the Norica’s big windows at the snowy scenery.
Tuck into a buffet breakfast each morning, and free snacks in the afternoons. A 4-course evening meal will round off the day – choose a starter from the buffet and pick your other courses from the menu. Before turning in, you can sit back in the bar or lounge areas, or head out to explore the local nightlife.
