About Gasthof zur Post, Maishofen
This traditional, family run hotel is located right in the centre of the pretty village of Maishofen, 5km from the resort of Saalbach-Hinterglemm.
The village has good amenities with several shops and cafés.
The nearest lift is the Schönleiten lift in Saalbach, 15 minutes by coach from the hotel. Here there is a good beginners area for pupils to learn the basics before progressing onto the blue runs at the top of the gondola. The lift links to the whole Skicircus so groups can explore the slopes throughout Saalbach and even Hinterglemm.
The Gasthof Zur Post has a total of 19 rooms over 3 floors, sleeping a total of 60 guests providing single occupancy to a school party.
The alpine style rooms all have private facilities, TV and most have balconies. They are very spacious and are designed to accommodate different types of groups or families. Each has Austrian twin beds and a large sofa bed that can sleep either one or two pupils, so each room can be configured to sleep 2, 3 or 4 pupils in total. Rooms will be allocated according to your group numbers and breakdown of girls / boys.
The large dining area serves traditional Austrian cuisine. Breakfast is buffet style and dinner a 3 course meal, with packed lunches provided to take to the slopes. Tap water is available for all meals.
