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.

Location superb and breakfast was tasty, but the hotel itself is simply not to 4 star standard, and definitely not worth the hefty 140 EU a night (even in high season). There was no air conditioning in our newly refurbished room, the TV was small and the Wifi was non-existent in the rooms. The shower was miniature and overall the... More

I think it’ll take a week of just doing nothing, that’s what it’ll take to slowdown enough to take in and appreciate the view that is bursting in my hotel window. My balcony opens onto a backdrop of clear blue sky, as the sun gently drops behind the peaks of what seems like cliffs rising from the lake like sentinels,... More

My room was nice, clean, with good amenities. Perhaps it was renovated since some of the previous reviewers stayed here? Unfortunately, the rooms are directly above the terrace where guests hang out *late* into the night eating, drinking, and making noise. The bed might as well be placed in the middle of a busy restaurant. Good luck trying to get... More
