As a hotelier I always love to be surprised. We were recommended Hotel Madrisa by a friend of ours who used to stay there as a young man. From the moment we pulled up in the taxi, we knew it was going to be good. A warm smile, a handshake and a cozy lobby. As a family of 4 we...

We have not been in Austria for years. Preferred Switzerland. But a daughters and our son in law said we could join them to Gargellen, Voralberg near the Swiss border, were they had selected a good hotel called Madrisa. Well indeed, this hotel is a real gem. It is the oldest hotel in the little village of Gargellen, family owned....

Wonderful food, classic jugendstil architecture, very well run and family owned. All who go there will inevitably return to this welcoming, extremely well run and comfortable hotel. We have been four times (and counting). Gargellen is a small picturesque Austrian ski station, perfect for families with young children with some off piste and ski touring. The Madrissa is the oldest...

Unfortunately we had booked our room somewhere else, where we were less than happy, but were stuck there. We wished we had discovered the charming Madrisa Hotel earlier! But at least we were able to dine there every night and were treated by their lovely staff to delicious meals and felt like in Austrian food heaven. The bar greets you...

Just back from a far too short, end of season stay. The Madrisa is just so totally and utterly relaxing. Not much ever changes - which is just perfect! The restaurant setting, food and service is as always excellent. The management and staff are always very friendly and totally professional. And the snow was amazing, fresh end of season powder....

Spent Christmas here with partner and two kids. Old fashioned, family run hotel, excellent service from arrival to departure. Good family room with two bedrooms and a small sitting room. Decor a little dated but high quality fittings with charm. Housekeeping is excellent. Pool and small kids play room and table tennis room gave them somewhere to get together. Dining...

Just stayed at this charming hotel for the umpteenth time. It's addictive. The Rhomberg family who own the Madrisa are always charming, friendly and helpful. Rooms are comfortable, spacious and always clean. The food is superb and substantial and service is typically Austria high standard. The wine cellar extensive as is the enthusiasm of Raymond the head waiter. Carola runs...

We stayed in the Madrisa hotel for 9 nights in August and we really enjoyed our stay. It's an ideal location for hiking tours, very close to the Schafberg gondola. Beautiful environment. The hotel is also organizing guided hiking tours twice a week. Our room was very quiet and comfortable (although the interior was not really our taste) and our...

This hotel gives you quiet authenticity with a fantastic staff team working hard behind the scenes to make sure every detail is in place. If you want glitz then this is not for you but that, perhaps, is its charm. We left after a week feeling relaxed and refreshed (although possibly a dress size larger than we had arrived, due...
