Customer Reviews & Testimonials
Although we have completed the online holiday questionnaire, I felt it important to send a letter of thanks.
We had such an enjoyable and happy holiday and our 11 year old was able to extend himself well beyond his comfort zone. It was very much the daily variety of activities which held much appeal. Your staff, and in particular, Anna and •Ben could not have done more.
Hutte food acted as a good incentive! We scrambled up walks using cables, collected numerous stamps at the Alpine huttes, went up the Zugspitze (in the cabine, and Dad realised he had vertigo!), played golf at the Tiroler Zugspitz, careered down on the Biberwier toboggans, hurtled down the Alpine coaster at lmst and a warm boat trip on Heiterwanger See.
However, the walk up the Hollentalklamm was the highlight. We got utterly drenched (out and back), not only from the gorge water but also the unrelenting torrential rain as the water cascaded along the floor and through the tunnels! It made the arrival at the Hollentalangerhutte all the more enjoyable. The hutte guardians could not have done more... a drying room, piping hot gulaschsuppe, Kaiser Schmarren, ski Wasser and hot chocolate! It was hard to leave.
We appreciated the varied wholesome meals at the Hotel Sonnenspitze along with the relaxing atmosphere of Ehrwald itself. You have a good formula which works. Without doubt you and your colleagues have developed a good business, which has come a long way since my first holiday with Collett’s in Arabba. I recall us meeting on your very first ski chalet holiday in Arabba. Happy days!
Great walks in beautiful surroundings.
We were well led and hosted by the Collett's team.
Impressed with our comfort room at the Hotel Sonnenspitze. Good food too and the hotel staff equally warm and welcoming.
Thanks for a great break.
I had an amazing time hiking in Ehrwald. The walk organisers were fantastic, and catered to the needs of all group members, as much as they could. Nothing was too much trouble. Hotel sonnenspitze was faultless in my opinion. Spotless and the food was plentiful and of an extremely high standard. I would do this holiday again in a heartbeat.
I can not praise this holiday highly enough. The leaders, Andy Anna Kate and Ben, were outstanding. The hotel was lovely in a perfect setting and with gorgeous food. The walking was excellent. Thank you all!
(Ps. A guided hutting holiday would be a welcome addition)
I had been with Collett's many years ago on a summer holiday in Arabba and their first winter holiday, again based in Arabba.
We felt the family deal for going in August represented good value for what we had at the hotel. The rooms were comfortable, plentiful food at mealtimes. We packed in a great deal and the advice/ideas from the Collett's staff was most helpful. In particular, Anna and Ben were able to suggest alternatives for some of the walks. The purchase of the 'Z card' was very good value for money and we made extensive use of it.
Although we got utterly drenched walking up the Hollentalklamm Gorge it was worth every step.When we arrived at the hutte...a drying room and piping hot gulaschsuppe! Our 11 year old, Matthew, enjoyed the entire experience. It was a spectacular gorge.
We had a fantastic holiday couldn’t of asked for anymore maybe to stay a bit longer staff were lovely everybody was really knowledgeable and helpful!
Please maintain the unparalleled quality of your staff. They are always so helpful, whether at HQ or in resort, and it is always a pleasure to meet them.
Our 17 year old son and my husband and I spent a fantastic 11 days at Ehrwald with Anna, Andy, Kate and Ben. It was our second choice but we're so glad the other Austrian resort was full as we had a fantastic time. Mixture of guided and self-guided trips, enjoying making new friends or savouring the landscapes on our own. I swam in the mountain lakes, despite snow surrounds and enjoyed the challenge of collecting 'stamps' at various strategic points culminating in 'Award badges' at the local tourist info office.
All of the staff were terrific! Friendly, knowledgeable, and encouraging. Previous positive experience with the company (in Dolomites), nice to have guided hikes in an area I did not know, easy way to meet fellow hikers.
Great experience! I would highly recommend to others (in fact, I already have!).
What a superb week. Fabulous walking and fabulous company. We love the Collett's set up - it works!!! Thank you to the entire team for working so hard to ensure everyone gets what they want out of their stay. A special thanks to Ben for looking after us so well, and to Kate - good luck this coming year!
