A well run, excellent hotel. Nothing is too much for the staff and the owners to make your stay the best experience possible. We went there with Great Rail Journeys, and found it to be superb, with good views of the lake an outside eating/drinking area, and, even more important, an inside bar where you could smoke on a wet...

the location is superb - in the middle of the village, handy for the lakeside and the shop and bank and with easy access to the beautiful church and convent and the ferry service. Rooms are large and comfortable and the food is varied, plentiful and very tasty. Staff were very helpful - to the point of driving us to... More

We have recently returned from a Great Rail Journeys holiday to the Austrian Lake District staying at the Hotel Post Traunkirchen. This hotel is in a most peaceful and scenic area on Lake Traunsee, we found the staff very pleasant and helpful and our room was spacious and comfortable. Our meals were inclusive but we ate at the hotel on... More

This is a charming hotel with a lot of positive features. In my experience the staff were unfailingly helpful and friendly, even during very busy periods, and I do not recognise some of the comments which have been posted here previously. The food is excellent, well presented and reasonably priced. So what are the negatives? One major one is the... More

You couldn't want a better base for exploring the Salzkammergut than this friendly and well-appointed hotel just yards away from the breathtakingly beautiful Traunsee. The only drawback was that there was no bar-cum-lounge where you could relax and chat over a drink. Be aware too, that there is little else in Traunkirchen (there is a 'mini-market' next door that is... More

Stayed at this hotel with Great Rail Journeys. On arrival we were greeted with a glass of white wine before being allocated our rooms. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Most rooms have a balcony some overlooking the lake. There is a good selection for breakfast including a hot option of scrambled eggs and bacon. We had dinner the... More

Recently stayed at this hotel. The bedroom, on the second floor, faced the lake and the views were spectacular. The bedroom was of a very good size. Had dinner one night and this was very good-fish from the lake! Would certainly recommend this hotel.

Have just returned from a 5 night stay at the Symposion Post Hotel. From arrival to departure nothing was too much trouble for the staff and Management. Our room was comfortable, spacious and could not be faulted for cleanliness, overlooking the lake with our own private balcony. The daily housekeeping service was excellent. We stayed on a half board basis,... More

I really enjoyed the stay, and I´ll return! The scenery: located on the Traunsee, beautiful mountain scenery, you just get up, have a breaky in the dining room - nice breakfast choice, pop accross the street, and you are standing directly at the jetty... Nice! The hotel: although the staircase is the one of an older Hotel the lobby is... More

While the location is superb, it is hard to understand why the hotel is managed as it is. You wait very long minutes at the front desk that is very rarely occupied. With the noticeable exception of one lady in the restaurant, staff never greets you, never smile -are they so unhappy?- Do not expect them to wish you a... More

Dear Guest! Thank you very much for your message! We are sorry you didn’t find our Front Office Team members at the desk all the time. Being a quite small family run hotel it is impossible to be present at the reception every minute of the day. We provide a service bell at the desk for our guests. After ringing,... More
