StJohann in Tirol - Christmas Day dinner

Jump to last reply

We've done it, and after years of saying "this is way too stressful, next year I am going away for Christmas" we have booked a weeks holiday in StJohann in Tirol, arriving there on Christmas Eve.

Our hotel (the Adeo Alpin, next to the nursery slopes) is on a bed and breakfast basis so we need to find somewhere for our meal on Christmas day. It seems from my research so far that the main Christmas Day meals are in the evening, which suits us perfectly as we'll want to be on the slopes during the day if there is snow.

The tour operator has sent us a list of restaurants / hotels / guesthouses that are open for Christmas dinner, and we need to select one to book now. I know the Christmas Day dynamic will be a bit different to the normal one so am reluctant just to rely on tripadvisor reviews for this - for example, I am inclined to think we should go for a hotel rather than a restaurant, as a restaurant will be anxious to finish up early and get rid of everyone, whereas a hotel has guests staying anyway and might be more likely to make an effort on Christmas day. Some places might have a really nice Christmassy feel which I don't think would be evident from tripadvisor. So I thought I would ask Fodors - any and all advice gratefully accepted.

The places suggested by the tour operator are:
Hotel Brueckenwirt (last order 7pm)
Hotel Crystal
Familotel StJohanner Hof
Hotel Post
Hotel zur schoenen Aussicht
Hotel Fischer
Gasthof Mauth
Gasthof Hauser
Gasthof Roemerhof
Villa Masianco
Nostalgie (Tiroler Stueberl)
Pinnochio
Hubertusklause (closes at 7 - if this is last orders that would be OK, but if we have to be done & dusted by 7 I would probably rule this out).

If any of these are seriously out of the way, you might let me know as I am guessing taxis will be hard to come by on Christmas Day.

Many thanks

Jane
