Me and my wife we spent a week in July 2014 in this lovely hotel nearby the famous ski resort of Schladming.
The hotel is located up in the mountain after a 6 km climb from the main road and provides for a wonderful view of the valley beneath. We were welcomed by a kind lady at the reception who introduced us albeit summarily to the hotels features.
Our room was the junior suite Bergquell that was very spacious (45 sqm) and confortable although we were only two this room accomodates easily a family of four.
The breakfast and dinner included in the room rate were good with a nice variety for the breakfast and quite elaborated dishes for the evening menu, although sometimes very sophisticated and not to everyone's tastes. The wine list was remarkable with some great austrian whites such as F.X. Pichler .
The hotel is equipped with various spa treatments provided in a beautiful setting as well as three pools one semi-indoor and two outdoor. Unfortunately we had rather bad weather and could not enjoy the as they are meant to be.
The staff was kind and attentive and always ready to help.
The only real downside of this hotel for a non german speaking guest is that everything in the hotel is written solely in german, from the daily hotel information to the spa treatments, indications etc. I guess here the owners shall improve on if they plan to cather to an international audience.
Highly recommended and we will for sure visit it again.
