Located on top of Schaftberg Mountain and accessed by a wonderful mountain railway, this unique hotel is a must for the bucket list traveller. We caught the last train at 4 pm in a wet grey day and saw very little on the 40min journey up the mountain. The hotel is at the peak of the mountain, a short steep... More

I have never experienced such apalling service or lack of care for guests as at this hotel this weekend! We stayed at the hotel as part of a large group of adults and children celebrating a birthday. Despite booking almost every room in the hotel as well as a 3 course evening meal and drinks for ca 70 guests, we... More

The Schafbergspitze Hotel has not been discovered by mass tourism. Although the cog railway carries hundreds of tourist up and down the mountain during the day very few stay for the night. If the weather cooperates you will be rewarded not only with one of the best views in the Alps, serenity and a gorgeous sunset and sunrise the next... More

Unfortunately the weather on the day we were visiting this hotel was atrocious! We were thirty people of varying ages carrying overnight bags but when we arrived at the end of the railway line there was no-one to meet us or even any signs to show where the hotel was. Because it was pouring with rain and blowing a gale... More

We stayed here 1 night in the hope of getting a stunning sunrise, unfortunately all we got was fog. The hotel itself was absolutely fine. We got a deal which covered the return journey on the cog railway and 1 night bed and breakfast. The room was ver clean, we had a balcony but as the fog was so thick... More

My friend and I had lunch here yesterday. I have a guilty conscience because I persuaded her it would be good. I won't exaggerate, the food was edible but that's the best I can say. This place is soulless. The management are clearly focused exclusively on making euros and not on pleasing customers. The service was abrupt and the food... More

Amazing views when it's clear. We stayed two nights and got the full experience. Fantastic view on arrival, unbelievable sunset. Dense fog the next day until it lifted late afternoon.Great sunrise the next day. Quite a trek up from the railway station to the hotel, but your bags are brought up for you. You feel the altitude for a while... More

I'm sure the hotel is everything the other reviewers describe, shame we weren't able to experience it. Due to the unseasonal cold weather the cog railway would not go to the top of the mountain due to there being "too much ice and it being very slippery". Not the hotel's fault of course. It's a pity the hotel did not... More

We emailed the hotel and with our reservation and were given instruction to pay with a credit card at the SchafbergBahn -train station for a Combine Ticket which included return train tickets and hotel stay+breakfast because they don't accept cards at the hotel. The afternoon train ride was lovely & relaxing coz we could open the windows to get some... More

Don't forget to take cash as credit cards are not accepted. We arrived the day before & tried to book the hotel & train at the station. No, you have to phone the hotel separately then pay for both at the station. There must be a more joined up method. Took the last train up & first back so virtually... More
