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

Stayed here on a "Great Rail" holiday and enjoyed it. The hotel has an authentic Austrian air to it and the staff wear traditional dress. The food was plentiful and of good quality, although we were slightly limited in scope due to being there as part of a package. The location is brilliant, just across from the lake and a... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night on a cycling holiday around upper Austria. We had cycled nearly 80km that day and on arriving at the hotel we were keen to relax and hopefully eat at the hotel too as we were so exhausted after the cycling. We were rewarded with a room overlooking the lake, with an additional... More

You know how it is, first time in a new hotel, when you notice the TripAdvisor shield on the door, you can be certain it's of a high standard. The hotel is situated on the Traunsee lake, seems like most rooms have a balcony, which is great to see the view of the lake. Very friendly staff, surprising how many... More

We stayed at this wonderful hotel in Upper Austria (Salzkammergut) as part of a Great Rail Journeys (Austrian Lakes) holiday. The accommodation was excellent, with only one slight problem - the bells on the nearby Kloster which chime every hour throughout the night, and the 6am call bell). Food was fantastic - five course meals every evening, with the main... More

We stayed for 2 nights as part of a tour of Austria. The hotel is literally across the road from Lake Traunsee and the setting is so beautiful it's difficult to put into words. It's just over 5 mins walk from Traunkirchen Ort train station, where you can travel to Halstatt and Bad Ischl amongst other places direct. The other... More

Returning from our ski holiday we stopped once again at this hotel, as it is about the half way point. My wife often remarks when she sees a picture of a tropical beach that is her ideal holiday. She hadn't visited this area for several years and as she stood by the lake in front of the hotel in the... More

A great location on Lake Traumsee. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food is excellent. The rooms are clean and quiet. Make sure to request a room facing the lake. Bike friendly. A good cafe. Enjoy the surroundings of the community. The Lake, dock, and the beautiful scenery.
