Super family holiday in St Johann. Stayed at Hotel Park which was close to the slopes and very family friendly. Snow was great. Children had a fantastic time with the St Johann ski school, they were in an all English speaking group and their instructor Anna was fun, energetic and always smiling.
We were very disappointed with our first instructor. As second week skiers we felt he didn't t do any teaching, in fact he hardly spoke at all! Just said "Follow me" and whizzed off into the distance. I was so disillusioned, I was ready to quit on the second day. We asked to change groups and had to be really, really insistant as the instructor tried to ignore us and then pretended we couldn't change. Anyway ended up with in a group led by Fritz, he was a fantastic teacher. Got my confidence back and really enjoyed the rest of the holiday.
Would definately recommend St Johann and Park hotel for proximity to slopes, shops and bars.
