There’s a lot going on at the Hotel Palace. This international hotel is a little bigger than you may expect from an Austrian hotel – which is handy as it’s very popular.

In a quiet spot on the edge of a park, surrounding the resort's thermal spa centre, the location is perfect if you’re after a bit of peace in the evening. It’s also just a few minutes to the centre of Bad Hofgastein. For the ski lifts, we’d recommend using the regular ski buses to make the most of the full Gastein Valley.

The hotel has its own large indoor thermal pool and an impressive spa complex, complete with saunas, steam bath and a salt inhalation cave. Pampering is definitely a possibility. Plus sport and fitness is taken care of too. There are indoor tennis courts, aqua-gymnastic sessions and a fitness room with all the essentials to keep in shape.

There's also an entertainment programme with live music and a games room with pool and table tennis, so there's plenty to do after a day on the slopes.

In the evening, there's a large international dinner buffet with plenty of choice – even for the pickiest of diners.

The rooms are both functional and spacious, but if you choose the small rooms for a couple, please be aware that the beds are very cosy – measuring around 140cm in width and are fixed in the corner of the room.

Important Covid-19 refund promise

Free amends

You can amend your holiday for free up to 28 days before your departure date, whatever destination you’ve booked, if you're flying with this operator.

Also, if you're due to go on holiday but have been diagnosed with COVID-19, have symptoms or have been asked to self-isolate, you can submit a medical certificate and amend your booking for free. This operator's normal terms & conditions apply for cancellations. If you wish to cancel your holiday, we advise you to speak to your insurance company.

Cash refunds

If there are overseas local restrictions that impact your ability to get on the mountain – like the ski area is closed due to COVID-19 – then we’ll contact you to amend or cancel your holiday for free.

If your holiday has to be cancelled for reasons related to COVID-19, you’ll receive a full cash refund for the amount you paid.

COVID Cover

Get peace of mind with our COVID Cover benefits (provided by the Holiday to Home insurance policy with AXA Insurance UK Plc). These include free amends if you contract COVID-19 before you travel and insurance for medical costs if you contract it while you’re away.

  • When you go on holiday with us in Winter 2020/21, you’ll automatically be covered for overseas medical assistance if you contract COVID-19. You’ll also be covered for any testing costs and we’ll fly you home for medical treatment if you need it (subject to T&Cs).
  • If you’re asked to quarantine while you’re away, we’ll cover you for the extra time you’re there and for a new return flight home.
  • You can amend your holiday for free if you contract COVID-19 before your holiday.
  • Your Holiday to Home cover from AXA Insurance offers specific protection if your holiday is impacted by COVID-19. You’ll still need to book separate winter sports travel insurance too, to cover all other aspects of your trip (e.g. winter sports activities, cancellation, baggage and medical cover for other conditions or accidents).
  • Take a look at the T&Cs. You’ll also find answers to some frequently asked questions about the policy, and the full Holiday to Home insurance policy.
  • This operator is doing everything they can to protect you against COVID-19 during your holiday, from deep-cleaning their aircraft to making sure our accommodations and ski partners meet the highest standards of hygiene.

Quarantine-free

This operator promise they'll only take you on quarantine-free holidays. This means if they know you'll need to self-isolate or quarantine when you arrive at a destination, they won't take you there, and if you need to self-isolate when you return to the UK, you'll have the option to amend or cancel your holiday for free.

Following FCDO advice

If the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advice changes before you go or while you’re on holiday, we’ll contact you to discuss the next steps. If it changes to ‘all but essential travel’, you can amend or cancel your holiday for free.

Keeping you informed

We’ll contact you before you go about the current safety regulations in your resort. We’re working closely with our accommodation providers and ski suppliers to implement local rules and keep you safe. As most ski resorts operate in winter only, we can’t confirm any details quite yet.

While you’re away, the resort team will always be on hand to support you – you can get in touch with us 24/7 by phone.

Book with confidence

This operator is part of a group of companies, one of the world’s leading travel groups. All of their package holidays include flights, transfers and accommodation, and are ABTA and ATOL protected.
