This was the second time we had stayed at Alpenland Sporthotel and we found it as friendly and charming this time as we did a few years ago! If you like to hike in a beautiful mountain setting, then this hotel and this area of Austria is worth considering. The hiking trails are well marked, an improvement from 5 years ago. And in the area, you have some options of lifts for part of the way up the mountains. Public transportation is good. We used bus and train for our travels.
The hotel is mostly a time share resort and so most guests stay for a week. Rooms we have had were small, but comfortable and quite adequate. Maid service was very good. The front desk is very helpful and friendly. They even loaned us hiking sticks for our hikes. WiFi is available for a fairly modest fee.
The hotel restaurant offered a great breakfast buffet which can also be purchased by the week, as can evening meals. We wanted to try local restaurants this time so only did the morning buffet package. Their freshly baked homemade breads are wonderful with whole grain goodness in every bite. You slice your own bread, then you can select from several crocks of delicious jams. My favorite was the pumpkin seed whole grain bread with the blueberry jam. There was always a nice selection of fresh fruit, especially the pineapple. I was fond of the herbed spreadable cheese on the dark grain bread. Their made to order omelets were good too.
The evening meals at the hotel were very good as well. The indoor pool is nice. Perhaps the best for us though was the view from our balcony! We could see the mountains, the church and trees which was so relaxing. We paid extra for kitchen facilities which was helpful. The kitchen area is quite tiny, but it is works for the limited cooking we did.
