Selzthal is a tiny village (only 1760 inhabitants). Probably the station is larger than the village itself :) I once had the pleasure to wander around Selzthal as my connection train was broken and delayed with 80 mins.
For accomodation (very limited):
www.selzthal.at --> Tourismus
There are two guest houses and one bed&breakfast.
For distance to the rail station, the best is to use map24 or anything like that.
Thanks for the quick response robbi - I realise it's s tiny place as I passed through last year but it is a big rail junction as you say. I've looked up both the hotels - they both seem fine but where are they in relation to the station - I don't mind a walk of 400 metres or so but not a mile! Any ideas where either of them may be located - you seems fairly local so might have a clue on that one. Thanks for anything.
I can only tell you what programms like Map24 say:
Paltenhof about 700 metres
Eder about 400 metres
Privatzimmer (B&B) Zeiser about 250 metres
Please do not think that you will get any luxury there. The area is rural, in the village of Selzthal there is not really any tourism...
Usually rooms are clean, staff is friendly, but they don't have any money for investment.
It seems that Selzthal has been a town fully dedicated to rail activities as it owns a relatively large and important train station. In the past people and goods were mostly transported on trains making Selzthal a hub in the region. Austrian Federal Railways (abbreviation: ÖBB) had an unbelievably strong workforce which has consequently been reduced to cope with current market conditions. Many other hubs in Austria have been reduced or even closed making previously dependable towns unimportant.
