Old but renovated hotel next to the lake in Zell am See. We spent there one week for skiing. Very nice and helpful person and the best in the hotel was the food. Excellent! Both breakfast and dinner. Nice fireplace in the bar. Rooms were OK, maybe missing some more place for skiing clothes. Walking distance to nearest lift. Warmly... More

The views across the lake are worth the high prices here and the room we had, in the annexe building, was spacious. The rooms are rather tired-looking. The food in the restaurant was of a good standard, though the menu selection was quite limited, and the service was efficient. Don't expect the height of sophistication here though as the standard...

The closest gondole station is within walking distance (as is everything else) butthere is hotel shuttle bus to skiing area. We have... More

The staff is very ignorant and the hotel has 100% cancelation policy. We booked for 3 nights and wanted to stay for 2 nights. They charged us for 3. They would not provide an iron and ironing board. Ironing service will take a day.

Thank you very much for your feedback. We can understand your anger but basically, with your reservation you accept our terms and conditions (which you have received in advance and surely read) regarding early departure. After we are still fully booked and we were not able to sell the room anymore and therefore we had to charge the 3rd booked... More

Thank you very much for your appraisal. We can comprehend that you find spiders disgusting but spiders in Austria are quiet usual and in addition as well useful. Throughout Europe there is not a single spider in nature that could be dangerous to humans. It´s got nothing to do with the cleanliness of our hotel and of course if we... More

We didn't stay at The Grand but had lunch on the Terrace twice and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It has a beautiful position overlooking the lake and the food was excellent. The staff were very friendly and the cost was reasonable considering the situation.

We stopped for three nights in Aug and what a disappointment. The hotel is very outdated, the room was dark and shabby and the breakfast was awful,... More
