Expect a warm welcome at the Boutique Hotel Martha – a small, family-run place with plenty of Austrian charm. It’s right by the slopes too, so you can click straight into your skis in the morning and ski back to the hotel in the evening. Or if you’re just starting out, you can hop on the free ski bus that stops opposite instead.
With its carved wood balconies and cherry-red shutters, the hotel’s exactly how you’d picture an alpine building to look. Inside, the décor’s bright and cheery, with patterned cushions and cute knick-knacks dotted around, giving it a homely feel. You can also start the day by stepping out onto your own private balcony to take in the snow-covered views.
There’s a beautiful little wellness area, so you can do as the locals do and end the ski day with a soothing session in the sauna or steam room. And when dinner time rolls around, head out to explore Zell’s many excellent restaurants. Or if you fancy staying in, book a table in hotel’s top-rated restaurant, Flo’s. The head chef serves up traditional recipes with a modern twist, and there’s a varied menu to tempt you, from grilled lake fish to wild berry sorbets.
