Great hotel experience for 4 of us skiing. The meals in the evening were tasty and well presented, usually a choice of 3 dishes (meat, fish & veggie). Plenty of choice at breakfast. The rooms were excellent - spacious with en-suite bathroom including a bath. Far better than we have experienced in alpine hotels and chalets in the past. The... More

I stayed in this hotel with my husband and eight-year-old son for a week during February half-term this year (2015), The hotel is not in a bad spot; right next to the waterfall and within walking distance of the town. You can walk to the gondola if you like (about 15 minutes' walk) but it's a bit of an arduous... More

We have just come back from a week's skiing in Bad Gastein and stayed in the hotel Sanotel which was near the waterfall. The staff here were lovely and you could not fault the service (or the spa facilities). The food was definitely a little hit and miss at times but no more so than anywhere else. Some nights were...

Lovely hotel with friendly staff, food great, bedrooms a bit dated but bed big and comfortable with a large bath and plenty of hot water. Minibus to gondola works well and is a godsend as it's quite a hike!

On arrival our room was a little on the small side for 4 grown men, a bedroom with Austrian twin bed and a pull out sofa bed in the living area. Not a problem though, after speaking... More

We had a room in the Residenz,100m from the main hotel. It was large & comfortable. The service at the hotel is fantastic; they really do bend over backwards to help you. The food was lovely; a 5 course dinner with a huge range at breakfast, both cooked & continental. They arrange free shuttles to the ski lifts & there... More

I will start with two problems: We booked the room with extra bed for the child. When we arrived there were not extra bed. In 10 min they brough the crab and when we asked to change it for small bed, they answered that because the elevator is under reconstraction they can not bring it. Finally they brough the mattress...

At a glance the hotel seems a bit far from Graukogel lift but the fantastic service offered by shuttling you to the lift entrance more than compensates and I prefer this to walking 150 m. The staff is super friendly and the spa a great retreat after a day in the slopes. We will surely return!
