Just back from visiting Christmas Markets in Germany and Austria. We stayed just 1 night at Hotel Schernthaner, but it was wonderful. We took the bus from a Salzburg, and it was less than a 5 minute walk from the bus stop. Markets were 1 minute from the hotel. Room was clean, large, quiet, and we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast....

St. Gilgen was our accomodation for two nights in mid-October. Hotel Garni Schernthaner exceeded our expectations in every way. Anneliese, the owner, was very understanding in reducung our rate due to a last-minute change in our reservation from 3 to 2 persons due to illness. She was charming and helpful in every way possibe. Our new room was wonderful, overlooking... More

Super friendly staff, nice size room and bathroom, very clean, great location, excellent breakfast, ideal location - perfect combination for a lovely stay. We only wish we had booked more than 2 nights! Not only would we return to St. Gilgen, but would definitely return to the charming and traditional Schernthaner. Of our three week trip of Bavaria and northern... More

The Hotel Schernthaner is a lovely old Austrian hotel on the edge of the delightful small lakeside town of St. Gilgen. It is owner run by a very friendly family, the welcome when we arrived was delightful and we were shown where to park in their car park on the other side of the street (next to the police station)....

This is the first time I have felt the need to write a review of any accommodation we have stayed in. We have just returned (August 2013) after a week at the Schernthaner and it was perfect. A very warm welcome from the owner, a lovely clean room on the 3rd floor with a lake view from the balcony and... More

The hotel is easily found from the main road which bypasses St Gilgen village and free parking is available in the street nearby. The manageress was most welcoming and helpful and our room with balcony was very comfortable with all facilities. The breakfast buffet was excellent. Overall, great Austrian hospitality.

We were deeply overwhelmed by the hospitality of the staff. The decoration and layout in the hotel is also impressive. The hotel provides free bicycles, which is also a plus. Maybe it is a pity that the hotel does not provide dinner - the number of restaurants in the town is not enough, especially in autumn.
