“Lovely holiday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Great hotel right in the centre of Seefeld. We had a large room with a great view from the balcony and a large modern bathroom which looked new! Great food in the restaurant and as it was 'all-inclusive' it was lovely to be able to get a drink or a coffee whenever we wanted to - very relaxing when you don't have to watch the money constantly! Service in the restaurant was excellent, especially from the two waitresses. Seefeld is lovely for walking and close enough to Innsbruck and Germany to make day trips on the train really easy (Mittenwald, Garmisch-Partenkirchen). This was my second holiday in Seefeld and I will happily return. Booked through Inghams and got a great deal, too!

Room Tip: Our room looked over the outside concert stand with the mountains in the background - lovely!

We are so impressed with this hotel. (Did not go in the casino). We are with a music tour of 300 kids. They split us into several hotels in Seefeld and we ended up with a big winner.

The place is family owned and is immaculately kept. It is clean, modern, and everyone in our group has been raving about the rooms. Ours is beautiful.

Our meals have been very good, the amenities tremendous, and they have great wifi. I just can't say enough about this hotel. I don't know what group rate we have, but they have their summer and winter rates readily available in a flyer outside the front door and they are very reasonable for what you get.

To put icing on the cake, Susi is a woman who works in the restaurant. She has been so nice to us and everyone in our group. Far beyond expectation. We are guessing she is a part of the family, but either way, people like her make a stay like ours very special.

If I end up back in Seefeld again in the future, I won't even shop around, I will stay here. That says a lot because I always shop around.

Great hotel in the middle of Seefeld. We did not go into the casino, but used all the hotel had to offer. The food was great the service was as well. Our Suite had the best view over the town and out to the Alps. The room was spacious and very clean, everything worked, wifi was free in the room. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and Seefeld is well worth a look around.

Room Tip: A suite gives the best stay.

Travelled to this hotel in Seefeld with my hubby.the staff from arriving to leaving were friendly and attentive.the room we had was spacious , clean equipped with all that you needed with daily room service. You were allocated your dining table on arrival however had the option to change, the breakfast self service with plenty of choices ( of course some people still want full English !!! ). Dinner was mainly a 5 course dinner which you chose on the morning, there was 2 self service buffets, there was plenty choice and food was good. You could have a packed lunch or alternatively a buffet lunch, the packed lunch was good as we were climbing those hills every day. Drinks were all inclusive self service beer wine water and soft drinks with spirits etc served from 1630. I have no complaints about this hotel and would recommend it. See field itself is a lovely village with plenty to do ,good outdoor activities,relaxing nightlife.We booked through nigh am sand travelled Austrian airlines who were first class .

This was our 2nd year skiing in Seefeld, but our first staying at the Karwendelhof. We had an excellent holiday and the hotel was great.
On check in we were told we had been upgraded to a superior room. This happened to be in the refurbished part of the hotel (room 304), which was very spacious with its own self catering kitchen facilities even though we were booked on the all inclusive board basis. The bathroom was fab with a walk in shower.
Our friends who had travelled separately from a different airport were also given an upgrade to a traditional (room 314) overlooking the dorfplatz. Their room had a bath which was nice for them after a hard day on the slopes!
The hotel is in the middle of the village centre and the ski bus stop (Bahnhof stop) is over the road so very convenient for both the Rosshutte and Gschwandtkopf pistes. One of the first stops it makes is to the Apothekenparkplatz which is opposite the nursery slope (Geigenbuhellift) and the bowl of the back which helps gets your ski legs in (Birkenlift).
There is a casino next door and the name on here even suggests it's a casino hotel but ignore this completely. They used to be one and the same but they are now completely separate. We were given a pass to get in on one night but we didn't bother. We didn't have any noise from the casino, however with our room facing the taxi rank we did hear a few engines running at night for a bit but nothing too bad. The train station is also right opposite but again it's not a busy line so you don't hear any noise from the trains either.
The staff in the hotel were very friendly. The two waitresses and waiter/barman were lovely. The food was amazing too. Apparently now the hotel is not with the casino the chef can concentrate on the food for the hotel only and I must say it showed. We stayed on an all inclusive basis. There were soft drinks and tea and coffee served all day. Breakfast was buffet style with cereals, breads, croissants, cheeses, ham, fruits, yoghurt, scrambled eggs and bacon, fruit juice etc all lovely. You could also get lunch at the hotel which we had on one day but this was only soup and a roll. I don't think the hotel see much point in putting on more of a choice when most people are out during the day especially in ski season. The dinners were lovely. We had a gala dinner one night with a set menu, an Italian themed menu another night and the rest of the week we had a choice from a menu which we selected in the morning (typical for Austrian hotels). There was also a salad bar and bread which you could help yourself to. You also helped yourself to wine and beer until 10.30pm. Four or five courses every night needless to say I'm glad I took my bigger salopettes! As we had an early flight back one of the waitresses came and asked us if we wanted a packed lunch for the journey. This consisted of a ham roll, a cheese roll, an apple and a cereal bar. I also asked the waitress if I could have some pumpkin seeds thrown in (they'd had them as part of the salad buffet) and sure enough they had put a generous amount in a bag for me.
The bar was open from about 4.30 to 10.30 serving cocktails and spirits all included too. I don't know the barman's name but my husband and I chatted to him on several occasions. The hotel was very quiet at night which was good for us as we were shattered after a days skiing.
The hotel doesn't have a swimming pool but you can use one in the Krumers post hotel across the road. The hotel did have a refurbished spa area with water beds, infrared beds and a sauna etc. it looked very nice although we didn't use the spa (probably down to the fact in Austria they insist on you being naked when using the sauna and as Brits we're not used to this) lol.
There is a ski equipment hire shop opposite the hotel (Ski rent) but also another one is opposite the nursery slopes. The hotel also has a ski boot room with warmers for your boots which is nice when you put them on the next morning.
Seefeld is excellent for beginners, intermediates, families and couples but I wouldn't say it's the place to go for a big group if you're looking for lively après ski. I've written more about the resort in another review.
All in all a great hotel which I would recommend would stay again if going to Seefeld.

We miss this place already, just come back from 1week stay. Had room 207 a massive room for 2 people, really clean. Staff were awesome and very attentive .... Food was 5 star and plentiful ....being able to get wine/beer/coffees from early until late is such a perk too. Best holiday yet .... Booked through inghams. Awesome place for cross country skiing and loads of other activities. A must see place. We will be back!!

We stayed here for 1 week recently on a ski trip, found the staff to be helpful and friendly. Our room was large with a lounge area and balcony, the bathroom had a good shower with plenty hot water, we did find the room to be a little too warm but overall the whole hotel was clean, tidy and well presented. There was plenty to eat at breakfast and evening mealtimes, and were either buffet or waiter/ress service. The lunchtime menu was quite limited but we were out skiing most days so wasn't a huge problem for us. In an excellent location - 5 minutes from the ski school nursery slopes, ski rental shops and 1minute to town. Contrary to some other reviews, I felt the staff were helpful especially as we only speak English! On the morning we were leaving (4.30 wake up call) we got a breakfast tray in the room which was much appreciated and a nice thought.

Room Tip: We had room 106 which was more than big enough for 2 of s.

What can a holiday have in common with painting? Well, while a painter selects the most beautiful shades from any palette, trasnfers them artistically onto canvas and creates a colourful work of art, for that initial motivation it helps to have a tranquil to secape from all the stress of every day life. The hotel "Karwendelhof" is such a place. Over the years it served the Tyrolean artist Fritz Wilberger as both a retreat and a source of inspiration: you can even admire his works in Karwendelhof. Why not to follow his lead: leave the mundane behind and enjoy the stimulating atmosphere of Karwendelhof. Here you'll find new energy, you can work on your physique, refresh your inner spirit and revitalise your soul. Sincerely yours Family Albrecht & Karwendelhof-team ... more   less
