We have just returned from a lovely ski holiday in Zell Am See which is a great town to visit and to top it all the Hotel Freiberg was lovely. We had a corner room with 2 balconies and the views across the lake were just breathtaking. The room was enormous compared to other rooms usually found in other austrian hotels. The only drawback was that it was next to the rail tracks which as a light sleeper I thought it may be a big problem for me but after one night adjusting to the slight train disturbance I managed to sleep through with no problems.
Due to a 6 hour delay at Gatwick we finally got into our hotel room at 2am Sunday morning and to our amazement the receptionist had waited up for us and showed us to our room and in the room the hotel had placed a very large platter of meat, pate, cheese, bread etc and a bottle of water and some chocolates on our pillows. I cant praise the chef enough for the fantastic food at the hotel for the rest of our week's stay and for the choice of food especially at breakfast and the home made soups and desserts are to die for. Vegetarians are well catered for and with breakfast you get a little newsletter with the weather conditions and quotes of the day and events on - a nice touch. The staff are really friendly and if you are lucky enough to get a table overlooking the lake like we had, this was the icing on the cake.
It only took us about 5 mins to walk to the town centre. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone although you have to be careful when booking as there are 2 separate hotels - one a 3 star and ours the Seehotel Freiberg the 4 star but in the holiday brochures they seem to advertise them as one hotel but they are totally separate although owned by the same family. We booked a superior room which guarantees you a great room in the 4 star part with 4 star room, food and views - it really is worth upgrading to this star if you can get a deal through a tour operator like we did. Its also a great hotel/location for summer too as they have a garden that goes down to the lake but obviously when we were there it was all covered in snow but as the lake was frozen you can walk across to the town on the other side. We would like to thank the hotel for a great stay.
