“Great Hotel with great food and views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2009

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.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2008

We stayed in the next extension bit - SeeVilla.

From here we had a great room with a view over the lake. Absolutely amazing!

The new bit has been done to a high standard too - rooms are nice and big, and feel really warm (just what you need after a days skiing/falling over!).

Also, by staying in the new bit, you get to eat in the 'fancy bit' of the resteraunt - you get your own table for the duration of your stay. The food was....ok i guess. Austrian food doesnt excite me much anyway (does it anyone???), so i guess it was good.

Location is a bit out from the lifts - first day was a nightmare walking in ski boots and carrying ski's over to the lifts. DEFINATELY pay the 20euro or whatever to keep your ski's at the shop at the bottom of the lifts. saves you carrying them there-and-back everyday!!!

All in all, a nice place to stay! enjoy!

  • Liked — nice new rooms overlooking the lake
  • Disliked — the walk to and from the ski lifts everyday - took about 10 minutes in ski boots
