My wife and I stayed at the hotel over Christmas 2011 and had a fabulous time from the minute we arrived to the moment we departed.
Very nice rooms, of course in "Alpine" look and modern bathrooms. There is an unsual amount of wardrobe space and a vast selection of TV channels to watch when the weather is bad. The housekeeping department is on the ball and keeps everything neat, replenishes those little shampoos and as many of the many towels as you care to use.
Public areas are spacious and pleasantly decorated with a lovely wood fire burning in the evenings in the bar/lounge. he main restaurant has a classic look and feel to it and the tables are always beautifully decorated and set in a formal (and correct) manner.
In the basement you will find a second restaurant, decorated in a Ski-hut way, where they serve traditional Austrian fare and live bands perform.
On the ground floor and basement there is a very nice "wellness area", with a large and warm pool, saunas and other such things. Be warned that in areas other than the pool you will encounter a lot of nude people who will give YOU the evil eye should you want to wear a bathing costume.

The staff is excellent. Very kind and well-trained people of which the management can be very proud.!!

The food is sensational. We were on a "half board" package with breakfast and dinner and every meal was of exceptional quality. Usually we are getting bored very quickly and skip meals after 3 days and eat somewhere else, but at this hotel we were looking forward to every dinner and did not even consider to eat out.
Not only is he food varied and tasty, but also beautifully presented and perfectly cooked.
Every single dish comes to your table exactly as requested. Steaks cooked precisely as ordered, fish is beautifully moist and everything is as fresh as can be.
The service is excellent and there is great attention paid to even the smallest detail. Waiters are evidently professional and under good leadership.
Overall, this is a wonderful hotel to spend a week of more of pampering with excellent service and food at more-than-fair prices.
Top marks all around!

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.
