Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Location, location, location – that’s what’s important on a ski holiday and that’s exactly where the Tirol Lodge excels. It’s got ski-in, ski-out access and is right at the bottom of the Hartkasier gondola so you’ll be up on the mountain in no time. It’s slightly further out from the resort centre, about a 10 minute walk, but there are enough bars and places to eat in the immediate area if you want to stay local. The rooms here are offered on a room only basis so you’ll have great flexibility to either dine in-house, up the mountain or out in the town.

The Tirol Lodge is a new build, stylishly decorated with great thought and attention. The rooms are simple and compact but furnished with but high quality local woods and materials. Make sure to check out the ‘Schwitz & Chill’ panoramic sauna and relaxation rooms with wonderful mountain views. There’s also a year-round heated outdoor pool that’s perfect to relax in after a days skiing, so don’t forget your swimwear.

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 30 mins by coach from Salzburg Airport and 1 hour 45 mins by coach from Innsbruck Airport.

The attractive village of Ellmau is situated between the rugged Wilder Kaiser (Wild Emperor) mountains and the more gentle Kitzbüheler Alps.
