Having always looked fondly on the Grand from previous visits to Zell am Zee due to it's iconic position on the lake, I wanted to take my wife to stop in this hotel. 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 The hotel is very outdated, the room was dark and shabby and the breakfast was awful,...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

Spent six nights in July in one of the Wellness rooms overlooking lake Zell. Large room with fantastic shower (including stream jets). Room well proportioned with fantastic view onto lake from balcony. Bed very comfortable and room thoroughly cleaned every day. Breakfast somewhat limited with minimum variety over the six days. No problem getting an outside table. Half board dinner... More

We selected Zell am See as a stop between Lindau and Salzburg. The hotel looks like its right out of the 1920s, but fully modern with amenities. Arrival with a bit chaotic with no parking, but the bellman took care of us and we got settled. Its a large hotel with a lot of people walking around. If you looking... More

We have stayed for one week at the Strass Spa hotel, Mayerhofen for the previous three summers without a single complaint, but thought a move to the Grand hotel Zell am See would be a change.It cost double that of the Strass. Big mistake. We booked with Crystal and I emailed the hotel in advance requesting a high floor and... More

My wife and I stayed 2 nights 30June/02 July on a driving holiday through Germany/Austria. Generally, when Hotels say they are located "overlooking the lake" it can mean anything. But the Grand really looks out over the lake in every sense of the word. The Austrian countryside is beautiful but Zell Am See is simply outstanding. The problem is you... More

Especially satisfied with the very nice and serviceminded staff And the location couldn´t be better, close to the city and a wonderful view from the rooms. The beds was just a little bit to small for our taste

We just returned from two weeks driving around France and Germany. Our last stop was for two nights at this wonderful hotel to relax and decompress. The location is idyllic with gorgeous views of the lake and mountains. There was even a swan on the lake just outside our window. The staff is extremely helpful and the rooms are lovely.... More
