“Long walk at the end of the day”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Have to agree with some other reviewers about this as although a 10 min walk to centre is mentioned it actually took us on average 20 mins to get back from the centre after a days ski-ing and its all up-hill. Don't let that that put you off though as they are a very welcoming and will accommodate most requests gracefully and swiftly. The rooms are a little 'tired' though as shown by the thin towels and very lumpy pillows that, along with a bed that won't allow you to stretch out fully, made for some fairly uncomfortable nights. TV is wall mounted with Austrian only channels (some pixellation) although I believe English programmes are available in the lounge downstairs. Some great views from the font facing rooms over Seefeld and it is a very quiet location. We found the food to be a little repetitive at dinner with variations of pork on three nights, trout on one night , followed by a do it yourself fondue style chicken meal and rounded off with a mysterious 'seafish' choice. I should say that there are, apart from the arrival and fondue days, there is a choice of two menus and those mentioned were only our own personal selections. Desserts were usually cake based but fruit or fruit cocktail (tinned) could also be had.
Breakfast was OK, the usual buffet style breads, jams and spreads etc with cereals and fruit (apples) Only items lacking were fresh juices and a slightly more comprehensive choice for the cooked option which was warmish scrambled eggs everyday. A hearty bread roll based breakfast is handed to guests leaving early for eating on the coach to the airport but helping yourself to items at breakfast for consumption later is frowned upon and actively discouraged with a warning notice at the table. One issue that could be quite a problem is the settling of the holiday bar bill. This has to be in 'cash' only as no cards are accepted but to my knowledge this is not mentioned anywhere, either by the holiday reps or indeed the hotel itself until the actual payment ! We noticed one couple having to walk down to the centre on their last night after dinner to facilitate this faintly archaic ruling, so be warned. We also found that although the bar area advertised a 5.30pm opening time for drinks before the 7-8pm dinner hour invariably there was no-one there to serve and indeed during the day and eary evening there was a distinct lack of staff about the place. We usually drank in the Hotel Marta just opposite for some atmosphere and company after our day on the slopes but it would have been nice to use our own facilities and not just at meal times. To sum up a friendly hotel with helpful staff but needing to upgrade its rooms and menus/food to reflect their customers wishes for greater choice and comfort.
Although of course it is only a 3* establishment and you are getting what you pay for - enough said !

Lovely welcoming family run traditional austrian hotel with super food and good sized rooms. We really enjoyed our holiday here and the staff were so helpful and friendly. Very rarely do I return to the same place but this is definitely a place I wii return to for another skiing holiday.

We have recently returned from our winter wonderland holiday in the beautiful resort of Seefeld. The Krinserhof is a small homely hotel, lovingly cared for by the hospitable Binder family. Special thanks to Freddie who takes an interest in his guests and is the perfect host.

Situated in a quiet, elevated area about 15 minutes walk from Seefeld centre, the hotel offers fantastic views of the village and surrounding mountains.

The bedrooms are basic but spotlessly clean and because the hotel is in a quiet area it`s easy to get a good night`s sleep.

We enjoyed our meals at the hotel. Breakfast is a buffet and the good 3 course dinner offers a choice of main course together with a salad buffet. Freddie runs an excellent bar, remembering all the guests` favourite drinks.

Hope to return next winter to this Austrian gem!

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have the best views.

Our first visit to Seefeld was a do-it-yourself and never having been on a skiing holiday before we were not quite sure what to expect. However, all fears were groundless as the Hotel Krinserhof is a wonderfully welcoming place and Frederik and his parents are superb hosts. Even though we were there only five days it was like coming home every evening to enjoy a drink and a good evening meal. We found Seefeld town to be as friendly as the Krinserhof and I would have no hesitation at all in recommending The Krinserhof as a great liitle hotel in a great little town. Warm, clean, comfortable and a lovely atmosphere. We hope to be back for more of the same. See you soon Frederik...

Freddie thankyou so much for our wonderful holiday and making our New Year so special, what you have is very special indeed.

the quality of the food this holiday and I think it's fantastic to have such high quality traditional food in a world that is full of immitations, this is a true credit to your father really well done.

The local beverages especially the "Almdudler" was a real hit with the children and is top of the pops for our children.

Thanks once again.

The Krinserhof is a lovely hotel in a lovely village. We love Austria, having visited 16 times now, but this is the first time we have returned the following year to the same hotel and resort. What makes the hotel special is the Binder family, who give everyone a warm welcome, particularly Freddy as 'front of house'. He is on hand with advice and gives daily weather forecasts! We had a brilliant holiday.The rooms are comfortable and clean, the food varied and well presented and they are quite happy to cater for different dietary requirements or requests. Unusually for Austrian hotels, they also serve vegetables with the meals, as well as having a salad buffet. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The walk to the village is 10 minutes downhill and 15 minutes uphill. However, it is only about 4 minutes to the base station of the Rosshutte and it is easy to access the Romerweg and paths to Reith from the hotel. Seefeld itself is a great base for walking or exploring by bus and train. This year our visit coincided with the annual weekend Craft Fair, showing a wide range of traditional crafts, foods and music and culminating on the Sunday with a parade of over 400 people in traditional dress - a wonderful occasion and great atmosphere. There are so many walks available, it is difficult to chose which to do - hence the return visit! We look forward to returning some time in the future and would defintely return to the Krinserhof - it is a little gem.
