“Pretty much flawless”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Service was fantastic; attentive and polite. Rooms are spacious and very clean with great bathrooms. Spa is beautifully built and decorated with a good selection of treatments. Food was very good but dishes could be refined with some less than perfect combinations served, in my humble opinion at least.

Thanks to the staff for a fantastic stay.

Grand is the word. This hotel is stunning!! Warm welcome at check in and staff very good throughout stay. Hotel facilities are excellent. Rooms are large and well equipped with wonderful views of mountains surrounding the area. Free secure parking and WiFi . Didn't have dinner in hotel as plenty of restaurants in town which is a short walk. Breakfast was brilliant, food good and the setting of sitting on the terrace beside the river only made it better. This was a great stop before going across the Grossglockner pass. Rooms appear expensive but if booked well enough in advance there are some great deals. I intend to return at some point

If you are in Lienz, this is one of the best hotels in the area. Spent a night here in May 2013. The spa and the rooms are outstanding. Covered parking in the building.

Two small negatives I should note:

1. The breakfast offerings are on the sparse side. I'm comparing this to some of the other 5 star hotels we stayed in Germany and Austria, and this breakfast was a bit spartan. More choices would've been nice.

2. When I pulled in, I had to drag all my suitcases by myself, through the revolving door. No bellman in sight and the front desk watched me lumber like a packed mule with a detached amusement. Would like to see them be a bit more proactive.

Otherwise, fantastic hotel and I would stay here again.

Eveything was perfect! A lot of details! The champagne when we arrive, the dinner in the room service, the furnishing in all the hitel, the perfect saunas, the cleannes, the reception for dogs (and the room has no smell of dog or cigarete), everything amazing!

Spent a night at this hotel at the end of a trip thru Austrian Alps, booked it last minute on a whim and it was the best decision of the trip. The staff is very professional and accommodating, the rooms are large, comfortable, nicely decorated and appointed. Breakfast (included in the room rate) was outstanding. The most amazing feature is the spa, by far the nicest we’ve been to, with multiple saunas, indoor/outdoor pool, Jacuzzi on a terrace with the view of the river and the towering Dolomites. Definitely worth every penny.

What a wonderful hotel.
Decided to stop in Lienz during our road trip and managed to get a room without having a reservation.
A very imposing structure and all the facilities you need.
First class, really helpful and pleasant staff made our stay a pleasure.
Our room was large with views over the river and towards the mountains.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river, but don't pay the extra, ask for an upgrade

We passed Lienz on our way to Zell am see anstayed for one night! By far the best spa and relax section I've seen. Really friendly and helpful staff! The dinner was far beyond expectations (even though they were quite high)! A perfect example of a 5-star hotell in all details! Well done!
