Family-run hotel with a good atmosphere. Friendly and accommodating owners, and the location is great - only a 6-8 minute drive from Salzburg, yet away from the bustle of the centre. A good base for exploring the area. Hotel rooms are clean and comfortable and the restaurant is cosy without being small.Indoor swimming pool which is a bonus, and free... More

We had a great holiday. Everything was how I wanted to be. The hotel is situated in a location out of noise (except some noisy sounds coming from the cars on the principal way). Good food, every day you have to chose what to eat from the sweden buffet. Temperature of the inside pool was very good. Mr. Gerl was... More

We stayed here 2 nights, having chosen the hotel for the pools, so that we could chill a bit when not sightseeing. We were not disappointed, our children had a great time in the pools, and we played table tennis etc in the garden. The owner is around most of the time, looking after everyone's interests. Staff all seemed very... More

This is a 3-star, nothing much else. Do take a look at google maps befiore you book. Prices are moderate for Salzburg, but then again ... Plusses are - A very accommodating reception (thanks, Carina) - Excellent maintenance throughout - Very well-kept grounds - Indoor as well as outdoor pool (about 5x10 m each) There were some minusses as well...

We spent nearly a week at the Hotel Gerl in March 2013. The hotel is situated well between Salzburg and many of the sites to the south of the city, although the road it is on can be quite congested due to the nearly shopping areas and the airport. The hotel itself is nice, with a good restaurant, nice grounds... More

We spend 8 days there. Good location near to Salzburg, if you go by car. (Bit noisy, if you leave windows open) The restaurant is a bit small and the flies are disturbing. The hotel is quite clean, except we had a very small guest with ears in our kitchen, but the staff solved this problem quickly. On the other... More

Nice surrounding area, near Salzburg, close to the highway, clean location, good breakfast, free parking, very nice outdoor pool and garden. Ask for a comfort room facing the pool. Could be a good idea for the owner to try a heating system for the pool.

We stayed here two nights on route from Germany to Croatia. We wanted to visit Salzburg. The hotel isn't in the city center, it's close to the highway and it's easy to park your car seeing they have free parking space. Room was lovely, but the kids especially liked the two pools (an indoor and outdoor). we were there in... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a family-run hotel which attaches particular importance to getting the price and service right, as well as providing individuality and comfort. Our house offers you that bit more in terms of service, furnishing and an appealing environment in a country house style. You will find spare and simple yet comfortable single and double rooms, as well as generously-proportioned superior rooms and family suites which have a character consistent with a longer stay. Another feature distinguishing our hotel is its ideal location: in green surroundings with a marvellous panoramic view and yet immediately close to the city centre. Thanks to the excellent road links, the trade fair centre, MGC- centre, the airport, the outlet centre, the stadium or Hangar 7 can all be reached in next to no time. ... more   less
