“Wonderful Holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We stayed at the Jagerwirt between 8th and 15th June. We were in room 224 at the back of the hotel which had a lovely view. The room was large with an arch to a separate sitting area. Furnishings were quite dated but this didn't really matter to us as it was really clean.

The hotel organises a welcome meeting with a free glass of sparkling Sekt and Alex the hotel owner introduces staff and gives a little speech. We thought all the hotel staff were lovely. Inge and all the other reception staff were helpful and informative Jane who runs the lounge bar is fab and even when you want tea or hot chocolate late at night she is happy to oblige. Riccardo and George, the wine waiters always had a joke with you and Martyn, Sabine and all the other waitresses were friendly and helpful whilst being professional .

We couldn't complain about the standard of meals or portion sizes. There was enough choice and even a varied vegetarian menu. The Gala Dinner on our last evening was particularly enjoyable.

All in all we had a thoroughly nice stay. Met some really lovely people and hope to return sometime in the future.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel are quieter. Rooms opposite stairs can be noisy.

Well worth a visit. Good standard for a four star hotel. Nice comfortable good-sized rooms (not noisy on the front). Great, helpful and friendly staff. Good variety of food and always well presented. Large lounge area with good local Lager. Nice pool and sauna. What more could you want in a town geared up to people who enjoy the outdoors. I have quite high standards but some of these reviewers should fork out for a 5 star hotel if they want the earth!

We booked a late deal week long half board package at the Jagerwirt with Thomson/Crystal flying from Manchester to Salzburg with a coach transfer to Kitzbuhel on Wednesday 29th May.

On arrival we filled out the usual guest cards and were given our room key, room no 356 with balcony overlooking the Hahnenkamm. Usual Austrian twin room (2 singles pushed together), mattress firm-slept well, 2 sitting chairs, vanity unit with drawer and mirror over. Coat hooks in entrance hall with large wardrobes (plenty of hangers) and shelf space, room on top for luggage. Only 1 plug socket in room plus the socket the TV was plugged into. Small portable CRT TV with only CNN in English but we don’t go on holiday to watch TV. We had booked a room with bath/shower. The shower was a hand held attachment with no fixed point to hang the shower head and no shower curtain (I asked other people and this seemed to be the norm here-I used the shower in the pool area anyway). Hair dryer, mirror/light over washbasin and adjustable vanity mirror. Room a little tired/dated but generally clean and comfortable. Bed changed during week and towels replaced every day. I read through the info book left in the room and no mention of a safe so the following day I asked at reception if there was a hotel safe and was informed there was a safe in the room. It was a small safe and you signed a euro 25.00 deposit for the key. 2 green towels in wardrobe to take down to the wellness area and after using the sauna for a couple of days someone told me you could get a robe and slippers from reception-why not add it to the hotel info book in the room?

Wellness area very good, used the sauna and swimming pool almost every day. Austrian sauna rules apply (nude-place towel on slats-put feet on one end-backside on other-simple) but the British don’t like so sat in sauna wrapped in towels.

Gym, didn't use but i think it was out of order. Lots of car free running paths around and away from the town.

Breakfast had a good selection of bread rolls-cereals-fresh fruit-yoghurt-toasting machine-scrambled eggs every day-bacon one day-sausage next-boiled eggs-juice-fresh jam-cooked meats etc. Tea and coffee brought to the table-ask for a refill-staff always obliging.

Evening meals were ordered in the morning at breakfast and the waiting on staff took your order-I prefer the tick list which seems to be most common in Austria but it was no problem to do it this way (mammoth portions-we ate breakfast and had a snack during the day-I like my food-cleared my plate each evening but my stomach needed a rest when I got home). Always 3 options for the main along with a vegetarian option. Starter-soup-salad bar-main-dessert. Soups were excellent. Italian buffet night and a farmers buffet night, lots of meat (mostly pork and turkey), small roasted potatoes and onions, buttered veg. All very good.

Drinks were the most expensive we’ve ever paid in Austria, the beer wasn’t too bad at euro4.30 for 500ml, but we paid euro5.60 for a 500ml radler/shandy. The house wine (Austrian red/quite nice) sold in 1/8 (125ml), ¼ (250ml) , ½, & 1L carafe. We paid euro3.70 and 7.40 for a 1/8 & ¼ respectively, you did get tap water if you bought wine. Bottle of sparkling mineral water euro4.80 for 1L. Do check your drinks chitty when you sign at the table-I’ve never before given one a second look and just sign them-a word of warning-check it before you sign.

Wi-fi, I was under the impression there was free internet available in the reception area but I’ve misread it and I think the way it was worded in the brochure/web page is also misleading as it costs euro7.00/day or 20.00 for the week. There is a desktop in a little cubicle which I did use but the software was too out of date to open a price page on the OBB (train) website. Again no real problem for us.

Hotel reception area is attractive and clean with some seating areas, lift. bar, lounge, dining area, wellness and Sigi’s bar are all accessed from this area.

Welcome meeting held on a Sunday (we arrived Wed) was good if for nothing other than a free glass of sparkling wine where the owner made a short speech and introduced some of his staff.

Staff in general were very good, especially reception.

Hotel is in a good location for both shops and walking routes being on the edge of the town. 10-15 minute walk to the bahnof (train station) and the hornbahn. It rained almost every day but we’d seen the weather report and taken extra boots and double checked we’d packed the Gore-Tex over trousers (we stayed similar date last year and had 1 day of rain and 2 heavy showers-short sleeves rest of the time) but despite this we walked every day including the alpenhaus just below the kitzbuheler horn (snow and low cloud stopped us from continuing any further). Aurach wildlife park (Guest card admits two adults for euro14.00), get there for feeding at 2.30pm. Also I’m told the strudel was very good and reasonable at euro5.50 including a cup of tea. Ober Aurach has a very nice church-worth a stop for half an hour on the way up to the park. Walk to St Johann via farm museum-train back from St Johann to Kitzbuhel costs euro2.10 each. We also walked to Kirchberg via Lebenbergkopf and round the back of Schwarzsee to see the Corpus Christi procession which is really quite a spectacular sight. 90 horses and 2 marching bands from Brixen, Westendorf and Kirchberg walked from Brixen to Klausen.

For what we paid we would stay here again if we could get the same or similar deal in the future.

We have just returned fron a week in Austria staying at The Jagerwirt.
The weather was the worst it has been for this time of year.Seven days and nights of non-stop rain.Local flooding and landslides,road closures meant visiting other Towns wasn't adviseable.
The Jagerwirt and the fabulous staff saved the Holiday from a total disaster.
The food was great,rooms clean and comfortable and the Lounge/Bar extremely comfortable!
Lovely large sofas and chairs.The Spa area was a favourite due to the Weather and the Pool was very warm and towelling robes and slippers were available from reception.
Wer have stayed in Kitzbuhel on a few occasions and this is definately the best all rounder.

Late booking through Crystal so achieved good package price. With this in mind there could be no complaints. Staff extremely helpful and efficient. Food typical for this type of hotel, somewhat limited but always acceptable. Rooms and facilities were tired. Our room at front of hotel was noisy - traffic noise and its position opposite the fire station! Pool area good, but had to ask for sauna and steam rooms to be switched on. We would now expect good free wifi - but 20 euros per week acceptable.

It's a 15 minute walk into town as the Jagerwirt is virtually the last hotel in town. Fine for us in the summer, not sure for skiers who want quick access to the two lift stations. Kitzbuhel a good location for a week's stay for walking and cycling.

Lovely hotel towards the outer part of the town centre. The hotel is reasonably large, very friendly and offers a great selection of food.

No real negatives at this hotel other than all the single rooms are at the front of the hotel and thus have road noise and being only a few yards from the fire station, the double glazed window had its work cut out in quietening the room down. For those with walking disabilities, the lift only goes as far as the fourth floor and you could be allocated a room on the fifth (that said, the room was changed without fuss very quickly as soon as the helpful staff realised the reason for the request to change). Not all rooms have balconies (room 364 didn't) but the single room was spacious and whilst the bathroom did show some signs of wear and tear, the room was clean and tidy and the bath was huge.

Food was varied and well prepared. You do usually need to make your menu choices for the evening meal at the breakfast table though which is a different arrangement to other hotels in the town.

Within walking distance of the town centre and the two cable cars with the river (in full spate during the first week in June) next to the hotel.

The test of a good hotel is whether you would return. Yes, without a doubt.

Room Tip: A jug of Iced tap water is free with your meal. Mineral water is expensive

Stayed for 1 week here after booking with Crystal. Weather was dreadful so got plenty of time in the hotel itself!

THE GOOD: The hotel is in an good location, a stroll into town is easy enough. The staff are friendly and some are quirky - this may lead to the apperence that they are not overly polite, but this was not really a problem. The pool area is lovely and boasts a good size pool. Food is excellent - as a regular to Austria it isn't the best I've had, but all was well presented, plentiful and tasty. Breakfasts were excellent and there was a great choice.

THE BAD: I stayed in a single room - which was incredibly small. There was no balcony. Large bathroom but would have preferred more actual room space. Room was basically a long narrow "corridor" with 2 huge fitted wadrobes. Bed was along one edge of the "corridor". No single traveller on a 20kg luggage allowence would ever need this much wardrobe space! TV was old and small and had a poor display. (A bit pedantic). No free wi-fi. Unacceptable in this day and age? 20 euros for the week and those who paid tell me they never did get it to work. Carpet in room was dirty and worn and the towels simply got thinner and thinner as the week went on. May have been better off drying oneself on the bed sheets on the last day. No heating control for the room. Radio did not work.

Would not recommend this hotel for a single traveller. However from what I saw of the double rooms they looked spacious and very nice indeed.

Under different circumstances I may have took a more positive view of the hotel overall but the room was just not what I was expecting from a 4 star hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid the single rooms at all costs.
