“More than expected”
Reviewed April 14, 2011

We stayed in this hotel for one week (week 8) and it was excellent experience. It was really relaxing stay for the whole family. Personnel was very service minded, hotel is very clean (also pool area) and food was much more than normal half board. We don't normally use halfboard but here it was really value for money. The staff in the restaurant was amazing; very friendly, professional, all the time available and made kids also feel like very special guests; if they couldn't choose from the board anything (which is strange since there are boards full of delicacies), they could take from kids menu without any extra charge. Once a week they have gala-dinner and it was amazing, like in top restaurants. We thought first that the location is not good when skilifts are not in walking distance. But they have shuttle service fom/to the hotel so skilifts were easier to reach than from hotels with central location. We will deffinately choose this hotel again, hopefully already next year again!

The Gastein valley is a superb location and the hotel is a great place from which to explore the area, the rooms are great very big and very comfortable with good facilites. The hotel itself is very well equiped with fitness and spa facilities and in fact puts you in mind of a 5 star resort with the level of equipment. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming in the hotel and I only wish our stay had been longer. The restaurant is very good and does an absolutely fantastic Apfel Studel very fresh and tasty. We would definately come back to this hotel as we were made to feel very welcome indeed.
