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

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
