This turned out to be a great find! A good location and nice facilities are solid. The wifi connection is pretty good and a daily breakfast starts you out on the right track. Games, billiards, a bar, and other seating areas make this a very comfortable place to stay, in and out of the room. It is just minutes walking... More

My son and I spent a couple of days in the Obertraun/Hallstatt area. The decision to stay in Obertraun, rather than touristy, more expensive Hallstatt was a good one for us. There are hiking trails around Obertaun and it is a charming Austrian village. It's an easy boat trip over to Hallstatt. We enjoyed hiking up Mount Dachstein and viewing... More

My wife and I visited a few places in Austria in late September: Vienna, Salzburg, and the Halstadt area. The Obertrauner Hof was our best choice. The room appeared to have a new bathroom. It was large, bright, and spotless. Each floor had a commons area for tea or a glass of wine in the evening. They have a good... More

We stayed here for 3 nights while touring Dachsteinhöhlen & Hallstatt. The hosts are great people, super helpful. The room was large & spotless. There is free WiFi and a great lounge with coffee in the second floor. Excellent value for money. Would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I decided to stay at Obertraun rather than the more touristy Hallstatt - a good choice for our four nights. Trevor and Debbie were excellent hosts and extremely helpful with suggestions regarding walks,cycling (sorry about the bike Trevor) and attractions. We had a very spacious, comfortable and clean room and bathroom on the top floor. Breakfast was... More

It's rare that a hotel or its proprietors find their way to become inseparable from one's most cherished memories but that's exactly what happened when Debbie and Trevor, the proprietors of Obertrauner Hof, agreed to help me, a perfect stranger from the internet, arrange a marriage proposal to my then girlfriend (now fiancé). My plan was to surprise her and... More

My friend and I stayed with Trevor and Debbie for 8 nights in the 2 br suite on the 2bd floor. The hotel is very comfortable, Trevor and Debbie provide wonderful personal care and advise for weather appropriate activities. Breakfast is very generous, coffee available in the lounge floor. The position is great with ready access to all major sites... More

For a 2 stars, Obertrauner Hof is a good place to stay. We had a large room which normally hosts 3 people, but as it was the last one available we had to book it. The pricing was reduced accordingly, which was nice. Breakfast coffee was undrinkable, just get some tea. In general the breakfast was nothing to brag home... More

My daughter and I liked the Obertrauner Hof. English-owned and run, it is a clean, welcoming and perfect base for a walking holiday. Obertraun is a pretty village with no razzmatazz; there is an information office, a good little supermarket, and a bank, along with a number of lovely eating places. There are of course a few small hotels and... More

What an ideal location, across the lake from busy Hallstatt! Our rooms were clean, comfortable and very quiet. We all had a balcony, with a beautiful view of the mountains. Our hosts Debbie & Trevor could not have been more welcoming or helpful. It was Trevor who suggested we get an early start the next morning, as he had checked... More
