We booked well in advance and since then there have been some management changes but they seem now to have been resolved. Our answers prior to arrival were answered swiftly but there was a slight inaccuracy on the restaurant. We were arriving late and asked about timings, to be told that the restaurant was open till 2300. That was the case, but the kitchen closed at 2130. However, the chef was on hand and we had a great dinner after all. Our room, 7, was at the top of the villa and had small but lovely views over the valley. It had a large bed/sitting area and small but adequate shower room. We were there for 4 nights and had to ask for additional shower/shampoo sachets but apart from that we lacked nothing. The breakfasts were good - simple buffet and eggs to order - set us up for the day with fresh fruit too. Our friends had one of the suites on the ground floor but quite frankly, our room was nicer!

Room tip: Room 7 on the top floor was nice and spacious. No need for a suite but wifi not so brilliant..

We have been to Villa Solitude twice and have en enjoyed it big time! We will strongly recommend to take half board. Then you will have your dinner in the most delightful restaurant "Lutter & Wegner" at the basement of the hotel. The food is close to gourmé standard and you will not find it better anywhere in town. And the prices are absolutely fair.
The hotel manager Maria and the whole staff is making a huge effort to make you feel comfortable and at home.

Room tip: There is no elevator, so be prepaired if you choose the wonderful rooms under the roof

We only spent one night at Villa Solitude, but we wished we could stay much longer. Built by a baron in 1838, the mansion has been completely upgraded, while retaining all of the most spectacular architectural components. Our room on the ground floor had superb parquet wood flooring and wood paneling. Even the 15' ceiling was carved wood! The bath was huge, with quality fixtures. Our room opened to a terrace that overlooked the city's iconic waterfall and the entire city as well. The room price included breakfast, free parking and free wifi. The location is a "10" and it's in walking distance of everything. We ate dinner in the restaurant, which was both reasonably priced and excellent. The staff was wonderful, both cheerful and helpful in every way. It will remain on of the high points of our trip to Bad Gastein, and we rate it one of the best in Europe! Can't recommend it highly enough!!!

Room tip: Our ground floor room #2, had 2 single beds and a terrace overlooking the waterfall!

This charming pension lies in the former home of a count, who built it for his family in the late 19th century. We were lucky to get one of the rooms in the aisle, with windows in several directions and towards the waterfall of Bad Gastein.

The atmosphere is very personal. There is a living room on the main floor, working as the lobby, with a library of DVDs that you may borrow to watch in your room. A lovely tom cat, who loves to be pet, also comes with the interior.

The breakfast includes yoghurt, cereals, fruit cocktail or freshly grated apples, bread, cheese, sausage, and juice. The breakfast is served in the cellar, where the owners' wine bar and cuisine restaurant is located. Don't miss to spend at least one of your dinners here.

We highly recommend this hotel and would happily return again.

The Good:
We had a delightful 3 night stay at villa solitude. Very good overall experience. It's a hotel with B&B feel. Likely the best in Bad Gastein. Spacious rooms. Staff is superb, very hospitable. They leave you be. Your personal breakfast, great! Location with terrace views of the village and waterfall. Parking in front of the hotel. Top 5 restaurant of Bad Gastein on site. Spectacular views.

The Bad:
Horribly hard beds, we both woke up broken and tired every morning. No elevator, take the stairs with your bags. Wi-Fi is poor and not available in the rooms. The restaurant closes on Wednesday in summer. Food is not that good. Try Jagrhausl down the street for schnitzel! Avoid Gin & Ginger. Nothing happening in Bad Gastein in summer. No blame, but the waterfall IS noisy

Room tip: A room at ground or first floor (stairs, WiFi) A room with waterfall view?
