As the "Hotel" does not have a restaurant, I would class it as a very good B&B. The rooms varied in size. I asked for a smoking room and got a very large light airy room with, counting the bathroom, 3 large windows. Our friends who had a non smoking room had a room of similar size but only one window which made their room feel smaller and a bit gloomy. Overall the rooms were clean and modern. The funiture was of nice and useable quality. The beds were comfortable as were the pillows. Bathroom was large but only had a shower which suited us. The staff were warm and inviting, and were happy to answer any queries we had. The breakfast buffet was lovely with a large selection of fish, meats, cheese, cereals etc. Free parking for the car meant we could catch the tram just outside the hotel which took us to the centre of Salzburg (cost 8.5 euros each way for the 4 of us). The hotel is too far out from the city centre to walk but as I just said the tram made it a doddle. It made an excellent base for the city centre where you just have to see the castle, walk the tiny medieval streets full of superb little shops and the Mirabelle gardens (you can sing do ray me on the steps and dance around the fountain if you like and admission is free), and it was also a good base for excursions, we did Hitlers Eagle's nest where the views are just fantastic, the salt mine in Hallein and the largest ice cave in the world, the Eisreisenwelt at Werfen. (don't go if your not fit. Once you make it to the mouth of the cave you then have another 700 steps to climb followed by another 700 on the ascent!). All in all a very nice place to stay and we would stop there again.
