“Wonderful view from the balcony and perfect breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

The owner of the "pension" is really nice, the rooms are clean and cosy, the view from the balcony is wonderful (and you can see the cableway station right beside the Pension). The breakfast is really good, many options of delicious food, just like a typical austrian breakfast. If you don't have a car, be aware that most of the places close early at night, so you need to go downtown or have your dinner early.

Excelente "Pension" with an excellent service, cosy room and great view. But for me the best experience was the breakfast, on a cosy room a typical austrian breakfast, with lots of cereals, fruits, nuts, boiled egg... The hotel is really close to the cable cara, good for those who want to ski in the winter or hick in the summer.

We arrived just late in the evening for just one night so we couldn’t impressed for all what pension Margaret can offer, but from what we saw I can say that its very nice place to stay. The rooms are clean, the view from the rooms is amazing and the breakfast was good. There is a lot of parking place and the staff is friendly and welcoming. Of course if you are going for ski vacation it's almost ski out because you are 100 meters from the elevator.

i sayed there with my wife for 3 nights , it was perfect place just in front of schmitten cables which is a real plus. rooms despite a little pit small are well furnished , very clean , safe in room is a good advantage, the balacony in the room is marvellous , WC is very good and convenient. the breakfast is very delicious and fresh , the hotel owner do all the best to help you and facilitate everything , we were leaving 5 am in the morning , the owner made lunch box for us hanged it early in our room door. the zell am see - kaprun card is a real real plus and good save . there is a bus stop just in front of hotel however the last time is 6 pm also the earliest is 8 am , we had no car but we could manage this by using taxi on returning late to the hotel which costs round by 8-9 euros . however still this hotel is a very good deal. definitely i recommend it.

We stayed here for three nights and there is absolutely nothing for complain. It is family run hotel/pension, it is little bit far away from the lake and town, but on the other hand it is very calm ( we´ve been there in summer), The stuff/owner(s) are very friendly ,rooms are small but in this beatiful location is not expected that you will stay on the room whole day ;-). So for us absolutely ok , sleeping quality excellent. Yes, by car is better cause for us "climbing" by foot to uphill from the town was small "adrenaline trip" but for someone could be OK ;-). In overall - very, very good stay what we´ve enjoyed.

We stayed here for two nights and it was really lovely.
It is in Zell am See but up by the ski slope, it would be a long walk up hill (mountain) if you didn't have a car to go to and from the town and lake.
The rooms are good but small but all have a balcony which was wonderful.
The breakfast was great, the owner lovely as are her staff.
Down sides which is not a criticism for me but might be for some, no English TV channels and no kettle.
The location was great as it is next to the cable car which I would imagine in the ski season would be a huge bonus.

To make a long story short my girlfriend and I picked up a nasty flu and were bed bound for a couple of days during our week in Zell am See. Not only did Erika (hotel proprietor) go out of her way to make sure that we were ok (checking in on us and bringing tea and toast up to our room). She even made a chicken noodle soup for us for lunch (unasked for), meaning we didn't have to drag ourselves to town, which at that point was going to be an ordeal. I have worked in the travel industry for over 10 years and during that time have stayed in some pretty incredible hotels and resorts, of an impeccable standard. I will not say that the Pensione Margarete is 5* accommodation because it is not.
However, for the price it is fantastic value for money. The rooms, are clean, bright and comfortable. The breakfast was a good selection of cold meats, bread, eggs, cereal etc. - plenty of energy for the days skiing. The location is perfect if you are in Zell am See to ski given its proximity to the largest, and fastest gondolas (they are in sight and literally a 1min walk from the hotel). If you don't have a car the hotel is a 20min walk from town, worth considering if this is a problem for you. Ultimately the hospitality we received at the Pensione Margarete will see us return next time we are in Zell am See. A Warm thank you to Erika.
