It’s certainly interesting. It’s a lovely old building which would once have commanded great views but is now obscured by new constructions. We had a lovely big room on the top floor which was very spacious and comfortable. It was also exceptionally clean but with a slight smell of fags which is normal for Austria. Rosa and the staff are a colourful bunch who like a drink and the service is quite chaotic at meal times. The food itself was decent without being tasty. If you’re looking to ski it’s not in a bad place. The runs in Zell are beautiful. You can get the bus down to Ariet lift and it takes 5 mins (or 20 minute walk). You wouldn’t want to carry your boots and skis though as it’s up a hill. Overall we had a great stay but it’s certainly not five star.
Stay away from this place if you value your life. Rooms: The pictures that you see are from the main building.. there is also a smaller building made of extremely small rooms with no space whatsoever to unpack.. we had to leave everything in our suitcases for a week! Of what we heard half of the rooms don't even have a bathroom / toilet - you have to use a common one for the whole floor. In our room the toilet had something like a pump that was also leaking and smelled bad.. never we have seen such horrible conditions and we have traveled all the way to the Balkans. The whole place is falling apart and it has not seen a reconstruction in many many years. Service: ZERO interest in the well-being of their guests. A three star hotel gives you everyday a pack of shower gel, soap etc. We had ONE small soap for the entire stay of 7 days. One morning the daughter of the owner parked her big Audi A7 right behind our cars and blocked us. We had to chase her up with the other employees so we can leave for the day. She was visibly very annoyed and something like an apology was nowhere to be seen. There was NO coffee for 3 days during breakfast.. there was no coffee machine. On the fourth day they somehow figured it would be a good idea to prepare some coffee and put it in kettles. It was some of the worst coffee I've tasted but at least it was there. On the last day they installed a broken coffee machine which they then put a cloth over. Why? The food for breakfast was absolutely appalling... I've had much better breakfast in two star pensions in Albania. There were no hams , only very low quality / cheap salami. Whatever bacon was there .. it was quickly gone and not replaced. One day we ran out of bread.. when some guests alerted the waitress she brought only THREE pieces to the people who alerted her... the rest of us watched in disbelief as she couldn't care less that all the baskets for the rest of the guests are empty. Again.. I've never seen such incredibly uninterested service in their own guests. The first day I picked some boiled eggs... the egg leaked right into my hands as it was nowhere near boiled. Dinner was all over the place.. some meals were pretty good while others were abysmal.. it was always a lottery as you had to choose the meal during breakfast from a badly written menu (also a first) Sitting during meals: Extremely cramped with up to 10 people sharing a single round table... I felt like i am on a sailing boat. Half the guests were visibly very disappointed and annoyed. The cherry on the top: On the last day dinner (most guests had a week long term) we found that instead soup we were served a 'salad' made of all the bad salami that were not eaten during the previous week during the breakfast. Job well done! .. It just shows you that the owners were trying to save on us every little cent of EURo so they can service their Audis. No problem.. when footing the weekly bill I left a tip of a whole 20 cents... probably shouldn't have.…
We staid for one week at this very nice place. The room was warm, cosy and clean. Everyday they were cleaning our room, making the bed and the bathroom. The food was really good and delicious. The staff and the owner were always on disposal, very friendly and polite. There is parking, place to leave your ski boots and to warm them, also place to leave your ski. For the price we paid the service was on a very good/ excellent level!
Visited the Limberghof because it has it's own brewery. There is a bar to the side of the main house, it is wonderful and looks like it was once a barn. Great service, thanks to Nikola and the other staff, all very friendly. The beer is worth the journey and the food looks excellent. You should visit if you are in the Zell am See area.
This cozy little "pig barn" restaurant accommodated our English speaking party of six and made us feel very welcome. Very authentic with great beer and great food. We shared a delicious plate of Pinzgauer Kasnocken and it was amazing. Our waitress was lovely. Great place to eat!
