Customer Reviews & Testimonials
Christine and I have just returned from 9 nights in Ehrwald and (not surprisingly!) had a thoroughly enjoyable time.
I was a bit nervous with this being the first year but Kelly and the team are doing a really great job for you. The product which Robert & Lesley have got out there is exactly what we have been used to over the years and all the walks we did were exactly what we expected from the other hols we have had.
From starting off in El Tabia in 2002 and working our way through the catered chalets, House Valentine and the Sabocos Hotel the Sonnenspitze hotel was top of the range. The service and cleanliness of the hotel is of a very high standard and the 5 course evening meal certainly kept everyone fed and watered.
It was quite amusing as we met 5 people from previous trips during our stay this time. Everyone that we met seemed to be having a really good time and it looks like we will be returning in Sept 2015. Apparently Sept is the best time for more stable weather conditions and we won’t get stuck on the autobahn for about 3 hours on the first day of the German school hols which happened on Saturday !
Once again many thanks to Kelly and the team for a great week and copious amounts of laughter.
Best regards and role on Andalucía in October!
We had an wonderful, active and refreshing holiday. The scenery was breath-taking. We were impressed and delighted with everything! Apartments were spotless, staff were fantastic - friendly, sensitive, kind and very helpful. We came home relaxed and restored and refreshed.
We had a great visit with you all and look back with much pleasure at our week in Ehrwald. As we have come to expect now, Collett's can always be depended on to choose great people to look after us...whether it be on skiing, snowshoeing or hiking vacations.
Shulamit particularly enjoyed her conversations with Kelly on their two hikes together. The two really bonded. Good luck for the rest of the summer and beyond. We both look forward to meeting you all again one day.
Just a quick note to thank Kelly and the team for sending my ‘Alpinwandernadel’ badge ! It arrived safely in the post this morning.
A big thank you to you all during our stay in Ehrwald. We had a great week in Austria and definitely hope to come back soon.
Thank you once again !
From initial enquiry to our departure we were delighted with the professional and fantastic service we received. After speaking with Kelly in the office after my initial enquiry I really felt Collett's was for us - so efficient and helpful. Thank you.
Dafydd met us at the airport for our transfer to Ehwald. He was excellent especially as we had to travel through a rather scarey thunderstorm making conditions very difficult. He drove very carefully.
As our first holiday with Collett's we thoroughly enjoyed office hour . The 4 members of the team , Kelly, Dafydd, Kate and Claire were always helpful , happy approachable and knowledgeable. All such lovely young people who helped us have such a fabulous walking holiday. We enjoyed meeting other holiday makers during office hour and have made some great friends. We enjoyed all our walks very much made all the better by the lovely staff who accompanied us . We felt very safe on all our walks . The staff were very clear at every briefing that they were NOT qualified guides and we always ran through necessary equipment etc before heading off.
Just to say thank you - we had a fabulous holiday and we can not praise your staff enough - they are an amazing young team who are clearly passionate about walking and outdoor life . One of our best holidays ever!
Family and self just recently returned from Ehrwald , had a great time walking on various routes in spectacular scenery with good company. Every afternoon returned to Hotel Sonnespitze which is well run and very comfortable.
This is our 7th Colletts holiday and cannot wait for our next !!!
Thanks to Kelly,Kate, Clare,and Dafydd for making our holiday so memorable.
First attempt we tried the easy walk, were encouraged to do something more challenging the next day and loved it. group sizes enough to have varied conversations but not too big as to be spread out.
Keen and enthusiastic staff, even though very early season and they were still learning the routes – they looked as though they loved what they were doing.
Having had two previous skiing holidays in Corvara, we had no hesitation in choosing you for our first walking holiday.
The resort team led fantastically by Kelly were a great team, interesting and interested people who were a credit to the Company. They interacted with a wide age range of clients very well and always had a smile. Robert and Lesley added another dimension all of which helped.
thank you for a great holiday - we will be back
Excellent holiday. Hope Ehrwald will be in your brochure next year. Expect to see me again.
I would just like to commend you on your excellent team. Clare, Kate, Kelly and Dafydd were all amazing – you choose fantastic young people and they couldn't have been more attentive and welcoming than they were. Please pass our thanks and appreciation on to them.
We had a fantastic few days with you - thank you - and just wished we'd booked earlier and therefore might have been able to stay longer. It was a more group orientated holiday than our Dolomites one (2006) and I was initially surprised by this (all eating together etc - though I know it is in the brochure) but this actually made our holiday for us. We met some fantastic new friends and I'm sure we'll keep in touch with them. The fantastic scenery, walks, cultural trips and indeed the complete experience have given us some amazing memories and some great new friends. Thank you.
Lovely welcome from Kate. We were late arrivals but she booked us on a walk for next morning. We'd forgotten to mention allegies to feather bedding but this was swapped swiftly, and with no fuss, by karen at the chalet.
Another excellent holiday with Collett's. Your on site staff were really enthusiastic and got throughly involved with the guests. Eg Stempel collecting! Excellent at tailoring walks to the wants of the party - Kelly was happy to extend a walk (at the request /agreement of all). Clare was excellent in describing routes and soon got to grips with what we wanted (and didn't like ie exposure). Kate's top tips on cakes at Alms was invaluable and her bathroom management skills in a remote Alm was both practical and hilarious. Daffyd's map reading skill became the stuff of legend. All four were genuine, lovely and a credit to Collett's. Robert & Lesley are a brilliant asset for your first season in Ehrwald (and smashing people).
