Beautifully furnished and decorated blending traditional Austrian authenticity with stylish modern luxury, Bentleys House is a charming place to stay in the center of Zurs, only 5 minutes from Lech. Combining boutique hotel with chalet comfort and privacy, Bentleys House is a new concept in five star skiing, eschewing ostentatious luxury in favour of discreet, highly personalized service and facilities from the very top drawer.
While this boutique hotel has only 16 beds in three self-contained chalet apartments, it punches well above its weight by having a wealth of facilities and the accommodation is superbly well equipped and proportioned so that guests enjoy the privacy of their own chalet but also benefit from services and facilities usually only available in a much larger hotel.

Available to guests
The Arlberg ski area is one of the most extensive in the world offering a huge range of terrain both on and off piste. The village itself is at 1716m making it snow sure and Zurs’ Trittkopf cable car and three express chairlifts take you quickly to over 2400m. The Zurs sector of the Lech ski area benefits from slopes on both sides of the valley offering a variety of uncrowded conditions for all standards. Relatively easy blue and red runs to the village make getting home a breeze.
Zurs is integrated into the Lech ski area and is a part of the White Ring ski circuit. Getting to Lech itself is straightforward – your driver can take you straight there in a matter of minutes or you can ski there via three chairlifts and red and blue runs.
Because of Zurs’ central location between Lech and St Anton, the St Anton ski area which is covered by the Arlberg lift pass is also accessible, just a few minutes’ drive in your private shuttle vehicle. As a result, Zurs is arguably the best place to base yourself to make the most of the whole Arlberg ski area and those familiar with Europe’s other major ski areas such as the Espace Killy, Trois Vallées and the Portes du Soleil will be impressed by the absence of crowds in such a diverse and well-equipped ski area.
For non skiers, Zurs has an ice rink and the boutiques and other facilities of Lech are only a few minutes' drive away
The team providing friendly yet impeccable service at Bentley’s are more numerous than the guests so you are guaranteed to be well looked after. Your butler, dedicated to you, will be on hand 24/7 to serve your drinks and meals, be on hand to take you skiing, shopping or to collect you in a smart private vehicle after lunch and will be a personal concierge throughout your stay.
Half board is standard and the head chef will propose a menu that he will tailor to suit your tastes. Breakfast includes whatever continental or cooked options you would like. Evening meals are gourmet affairs and the chef's aim to surprise and delight you. Both are served in the privacy of your chalet but can also be enjoyed in the hotel dining room.
The hotel bar serves aperitifs before supper and the sunny terrace is a great place to enjoy a chilled glass of wine or beer on a sunny afternoon after skiing. The beautiful wine cellar is superbly stocked with over 1000 vintages ranging from carefully chosen house wines to Bordeaux grands crus and Sauternes dessert wines. You should not miss the opportunity to visit and do a wine tasting with the sommelier to choose a vintage to accompany your dinner.
If you choose to stay on the “fully inclusive” basis, afternoon tea, all soft drinks and wine and Champagne between 3pm and 8pm are offered as well as inclusive private transfers to meet scheduled flights to Innsbruck and Zurich or to other airports including Friedrichshafen for private jets.
Location & Directions
Bentley’s House is in the center of Zurs in the middle of the Arlberg ski area, 5km from Lech and 15 km from St Anton. The ski lifts are a short walk or only a couple of minutes’ drive. There is a regular shuttle bus service giving easy access to the entire ski area, and which is particularly useful for non-skiers.
When to go
The Arlberg area has an enviable reputation for its snow. The Eastern Alps frequently benefit from early snow and the largely pastoral terrain does not need a hugely deep base to offer great skiing conditions. As a result, Zurs frequently offers some of the best skiing in the Alps in December and January. The microclimate means that snowfalls are more prolific than in many other resorts and with plenty of skiing above 2000 meters, conditions can be great right up until late April.
