I have wanted to visit Austria for many years, so when my wife and I finally decided to spend a week there I took a while to choose our resort and hotel. I can honestly say I couldn't have chosen a better town or better hotel.
The Seespitz Hotel was fabulous. Our room was 222, which gave us views of the nearby mountain ranges from every window. The reception and bar area were very comfortable and had a real luxurious feel. Checking in was done with ease and we only had to wait around 30mins to be allowed into our room even though we arrived at lunchtime on the hotels busiest day. I cannot speak highly enough about all the meals we had during our stay. The breakfast was buffet style of hot and cold, with a choice of different style of eggs and was plentiful with bacon, sausages, cold meats, cheeses, cereals, fruit, I could continue. The evening meal was a buffet style salad starter, but the choice was far more than just a salad. The main course was a choice of 3 meals, with 2 choices for desert. The biggest compliment I can give is that I cleared my plate at every sitting. We must give a special mention to our waiter, Vito, who was there for breakfast and evening meal, always with a smile on his face, always with a warm welcome and always there for anything you needed. Vito, it was a pleasure to meet you.
The hotel itself was spotless throughout and beautifully decorated. The Spa facilities were luxurious and the outdoor pool was most welcome as the temperatures reached as high as 30* C.
The sun shined for the whole week apart from a short heavy shower one evening, so this allowed us to go on many walks and see the surrounding region. The highlights were a walk into a neighbouring village called Mosern, where you get some of the best views we saw during our stay and also a magnificent 10tonne bell which rings each evening at 5.00pm. We also took a walk through nearby woods which eventually lead to the closest chair lift and brilliant mountain top ski restaurant where we both had Apple Strudel and a much deserved beer, whilst soaking up the sun and looking out over to The Alps. We also took the Roschutte railway and cable car up to Seefelder Joch which is part of a mountain range opposite the Seespitz Hotel. We then walked along the mountain ridge towards the adjacent peak called Seefelder Spitze. From here you get a full panoramic view of all the near and far mountain ranges. I can only say the whole 360* view was breath-taking. On our last day I had to return, albeit on my own, to this mountain range but this time I climbed the highest of the peaks here called Reither Spitze. Although the sun was beating down the walk across the peaks from Seefelder Joch to Reither Spitze will be difficult to beat.
A trip, via a short bus ride to the Gorge in a nearby town called Leutasch where you walk high above a clear blue river which forces it's way through the gorge as a man made walkway guides you through. This is well worth the trip and an added bonus is that you actually end your walk in Germany, where approximately 5 minutes to the left is the gorgeous German village called Mittenweld. It really is chocolate box like and we enjoyed a traditional german Bratwurst in Sommell and a german beer.
All in all I would give our stay at The Seespitz and Seefeld 10/10. It was everything we wished for and the weather was perfect. The best compliment we can give the whole experience is that we definitely will return both to The Seespitz and Seefeld.
