Gasthof Batzenhausl
Ranked #30 of 58 Hotels in Seefeld in Tirol
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Then maybe look elsewhere. Room on first floor with a paper thin mattress and unbearably worn and thin single pillow, a bed that squeaks when you so much as look at it and a continual racket from the kitchen below. Three rough nights sleep and sore back in the morning. Staff smiley enough but get the feeling that you wouldn't be remembered if you came back the following week. There is a nice cosy looking restaurant area that we saw from the hallway, but we were sat in the featureless second dining area for some reason. Food, was very good particular evening 4 course (half board) meals.

Myself and three friends took a last minute holiday to the Gasthof Batzenhausl Aug/Sept 2013. The Gasthof Batzenhausl was clean and comfortable and VERY friendly. We had clean towels and bed linen every day. The dining room was cosy and welcoming, the food was exceptionally good with no repeat of menu during our two week stay in fact as good as any larger 4 star hotels that we have stayed in. Evelyn the waitress who served us was excellent very pleasant and helpful explaining all the menus to us. Michael the manager was also very friendly and helpful making our holiday more enjoyable. Most evenings Rudi entertained with his Tyrolean music. We would certainly stay here again!!!

I have stayed at Batzenhäusl twice and it is great value, friendly and well positioned. The food is good (don't compare with a 5* hotel as it is not like for like) and the rooms are basic but sufficient, and have nice balconies. It is a nice traditional Gashof and allows for great exploration of Seefeld and the surrounding hills.

Me and my wife stayed at the Batzenhauesl for a week in late July 2012.

It is a three star Gasthof and this review reflects this fact. We paid a total of 613 euros for half board for the two of us for seven days. This equates to £36.00 each per night. This is superb value. Our en-suite room ('Enzian) was comfortable and clean with a good shower room. It was small and had no balcony. But since we spent our time out walking and sightseeing this was of no great consequence. It faced the (pedestrianised) road and could be noisy (farmers with strimmers very early and revellers late at night).

But sleep quality was generally good. The breakfast buffet was good with hot bacon, sausages and scrambled egg on offer as well as the usual ham, cheese, bread, yoguhrt and fruit. The evening meal was not exactly imaginative but the four couses (with choice of main course) were of good nourishing quality. Service was a bit slapdash at times and the manager was a bit of a rough diamond. There was superb entertainment by 'Rudi' Thursday Friday and Saturday evenings as well as Sunday lunchtimes.

The hotel is part of the Kaltschmid group and certain facilities of other hotels can be used free of charge. Also bills can be settled using your room key-card in these other hotels. And we were given a discount on drinks consumed at the 'Alt Seefeld'.

However we only discovered the availability of these facilities by talking to other visitors. And the Tirolean Evening at the Tenne is free of charge to Kaldschmid guests. But again this is not publicised.

Seefeld itself is a pretty town set within stunning scenery. The walks and mountain inns are excellent.

We would certainly visit the Batzenhauesl again, but would elect to pay for a bigger room away from the street.

We had a wonderful week in Seefeld and Baetzenhausl. The staff was very friendly and helpfull in every way. They payed attention to the kids as well. The room was big enough for our family. The room and bathroom were clean and the beds were comfortable. The breakfast and dinner were exellent. Tuly a great value for money!
On Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings there was live music and dancing in the hotel bar (Stube). The performer was very Tyrolean. It was a great fun and the kids could also come along.
In addition there was a possibility to use the pool area and the fitness room in the Ferienhotel Kaltschmid. The Panoramabad is awesome!

This is a guesthouse and cannot be compared fairly with 4* hotels. It gave us good value for money on our Thomson trip. The room we had was Austrian "rustic" with our room being one with a four-poster bed. The room was large with a good balcony (with deck chairs) overlooking a large hill with a chair lift. The bathroom was not large but perfectly adequate although our shower head was strangely positioned vis-a-vis the shower guard and was really only suitable for showering while seated in the bath - a strange and unnecessary plumbing arrangement.. A small point is the complete absence of toiletries except for a hand-wash dispenser. So take shampoo etc if you don't want to use the handwash (which you will have to decant into a lid or receptacle if you want to use it in the bath). The room was kept clean and tidy and the towels changed regularly by a very pleasant chambermaid.. We arrived VERY late due to our delayed flight and they rustled up a hot meal straight away. They were friendly but not talkative, having more to say to German guests where communication was easier. The food was very good indeed with no repeats of menus in 2 full weeks! You have to choose your dinner options from a limited range during breakfast. There was always 1 vegetarian option. We did not have any difficulty choosing and the meat and fish were always excellent. There was a salad buffet bar so you could not go hungry and again this was good quality. Breakfast was good (buffet style) and enough to satisfy the most ravenous appetite, with a range of options including bacon and scrambled eggs. The bacon was always popular and could run out, but you only need to ask for it to be replenished. Filter coffee was served at the table and was pretty good. The one drawback was the orange" juice", which was of the diluted type so frequently encountered in Italy and so I didn't drink it. This was the one weakness in the fare offered. We paid very little for this holiday - half the price we had paid for similar hotels in Italy and the basics exceeded expectations eg food. Service was quck and attentive, which, as it is a small guesthouse with a small dining room, was done by one lady with the help sometimes of the manager who spoke decent English. I mention this for those with no German, whereas my partner speaks German. The lady was a bit aloof at first but warmed to us in due course. If I had to summarise the plus points of the guesthouse itself I would say SERVICE and FOOD. There is a largish bar downstairs where there is sometimes entertainment and a "lounge" in a small room where you can talk. However this is a part of the bar and you will be asked if you want anything to eat or drink, although there isn't a problem if you say no. The guesthouse does a good trade in meals for locals and visitors at lunch and in the evening and it was interesting to see that the lunch menu for visitors was what we had for dinner - NOT because it was reheated but because it was quite expensive! So that increased our view of the hotel as very good value, because we have found in Italy especially that the tour or package holiday guests get a different, second class offering to the a la carte customers (a factor which has put us off Cosmos tours).Thomson mention that you can use the facilities of the hotels in the chain and they mention the large one in town centre ( a one minute walk) which has a small indoor pool, with a separate even smaller children's pool with slide. We used it 3 times when it was raining, although I can't say it was a nice bathing area nor was it much use for people who do want to swim up and down. HOWEVER, the Alpenpark hotel ( a 10 minute walk) is a big, plush, modern hotel with a superb swimming pool and lounging area, including playing field and gardens and this is available to you. This was a big plus as the Batzenhausl has no such facilities, so it was like having all the conveniences of a good 4* hotel while paying for a guesthouse! If you compare the prices to stay at The Alpenpark you will see what I mean!! But you need your own towel as the Alpenpark guests all have yellow towels (and white bathrobes) which they have supplied. So you may stick out a bit, unless you bring a YELLOW towel! In fact one guest did engage me in conversation and I think he was pretty fed up thinking of what he had paid and what he thought we had paid. But he was also complaining that children were in the enormous pool when they had a children's pool of their own, which he said was against the hotel rules. I got the impression that checking he was getting the full service was important to him, and lesser mortals weren't appreciated!! So I enjoyed the pool all the more! As well as the pool etc this is the hotel to go to if you want bike hire, but you will need to book in advance for that. Another plus point for the Batzenhausl is its proximity to the town centre ( a 3 minute walk for me), so it was ultra convenient for shops and events etc, which are held there regularly. Just one other tip - I was very surprised that in the first week there they tried to short change me on 2 occasions, both in circumstances which led me to believe it was deliberate. I have always thought of Austrians as more law-abiding than most and less likely to try on scams, hence my surprise. The first time was up the mountain at the Rossehutte where there was a young male cashier. I gave him a 50 euro note for the 2 drinks we had. But instead of giving me the change he gave it to my partner who was organising the tray, and had the cup etc in her hand. Why not give it to me who was unencumbered and it was my money? As it was strange I watched carefully and asked my partner to check - sure enough change for a 20 euro note! Good money if you can get it - English people perhaps unfamiliar with euros, do it 3 or 4 times a day and that's 90/120 euros tax free! He hadn't realised that my partner spoke good German so he quickly refunded the 30 euros, but it did leave a bad impression. The second time was in a restaurant facing onto the main square, the Tyroler Weinstube , which we chose as it was full of locals. This time the middle-aged waitress was given a 20 euro note for 2 soups, total 10 euro 60 cents. She counted the change out in her as if it were exact and then said and nine euros make 20, while dropping all the change in a mixed pile with three 2 euro coins. As far as I know there are no 3 euro coins(!!) and the patter along with the adroit mixing up of the change was just too slick. Also she made a hurried exit and didn't come back for some while by which time we had complained to the waiter who didn't want to get involved. This was again convenient as, during the whole of our meal she was round and about, but once the short-changing had occurred no sign of her! I suspect that a lot of people would just say " It's only a couple of euros and we don't want to wait", but I wouldn't give her the satisfaction, so she had to put it right, although the apology seemed more miffed than genuine. But, to leave on a positive note, use the restaurant/bar which is situated as you walk away from the main square towards the lake. It's the last one before you get to where they station the ponies for the lake drives. Their cushions are a bright yellowish orange. All their prices were cheaper than elsewhere. we had the goulash soup and the ordinary goulash - both very good and half a euro cheaper without having to pay extra for bread. The drinks were always hot and the coffee good. We went there many times and the chap remembers your order from last time. It is also a pleasant place to sit. There are always locals inside at night but it is small inside.

Located at end of main street close to Seefeld tourist office , rail and bus station, bars etc. Couldn't be better located. Bedroom was big enough but pillows lacking any support. Beds okay - two singles pushed together. Bathroom was one of those moulded plastic affairs and was very very small but at the price we paid quite adequate for the week. Staff pleasant and we were happy with the food at breakfast and in the evening. Cost of House wine and beer at Batzenhausl pretty much the same as the rest of the area 25cl wine and 50cl beer about 3.2 euros. The premises seemed to be quite popular with non residents during day and evening.
