I first heard of this hotel when it was reviewed in a major travel magazine many years ago. It sounded amazing & I vowed to visit but along came the children & life just seemed to get in the way! This year we decided on booking for Christmas - hoping for a white one a la Bing Crosby;). We flew... More

All of the reviews here are true (apart from the grousers - none of whom seem to speak English). This is an exceptional hotel run by exceptional people who are committed to the well-being of their guests - another golden example of a family-run hotel in Austria. There are two chefs on duty at breakfast to cook you your favourite... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Bismarck. Beautiful hotel with stunning leisure facilities. Food exceptional. Staff very helpful & all our requests were met and granted in a speedy manner. We had a two bedroom suite which was ideal for our 2 adult, 3 children family. The location of the hotel is perfect & it was lovely to stroll up... More

We are in the second week of our stay at this hotel. It is our first visit to this hotel and we love it! The family are most welcoming and there is a really good atmosphere. The food is easily the best we have tasted in Austria. Very comfortable rooms, ours is a suite. There is a programme of renovation... More

This was my second stay at this hotel first - class hotel with family and friends. Like our first stay, we enjoyed our stay this time at this hotel with complete satisfaction. We went to the Gastein valley for skiing and after a whole day's skiing on the down-hill slopes, we can relax ourselves in the spa area and thermal... More

We stayed for one week in March in a Classic Room. We arrived later than expected but were warmly greeted at reception and quickly shown to our room. As it was late we had to go down to the dining room straight away where we were warmly welcomed by the family. This friendly approach was matched by all staff throughout... More

We had a hire car with us which was useful for accessing the skiing. There is a bus service, although at some times of day it is... More

Never written a review on Trip Advisor, but the Bismarck Hotel is the best Ski hotel we have stayed in ! The cuisine is simply excellent. It is like staying in a Michelin star restaurant ! The family/owners are very friendly and very attentive. Mrs Wendler is a 'ray of sunshine' who genuinely loves her hotel and taking care of... More
