We found this hotel to be fab. The place was spotlessly clean and the rooms were cleaned and tidied every day with the towels changed as much as we needed. The food was excellent with a 5 course meal every night - buffet salads/starters, soup, main course, dessert and then cheese board. As far as we could see the buffet was being constantly refilled and I they boiled eggs especially for me as they'd run out (we were down quite late that day!).
Contrary to one previous report, the drinks in the hotel were not overpriced and were in line with elsewhere in the resort. Also, you weren't charged for water.
We did notice that the staff spoke more to the Germans however we didn't think this unusual or annoying as they speak the same language, its obviously easier to converse with someone who speaks your language and they certainly did their best and we couldn't speak German so can't criticise. We found all the staff to be friendly and helpful at all times.
One thing however, which I don't think is particular to just this hotel, is that the saunas are 'No Clothes Allowed' which certainly put me off and I imagine most other Brits would feel that same. That was a bit of a shame as I couldn't fully enjoy the facilities, although the pool was nice. Unfortunately the gym wasn't fully set up although we were there very early in the season (only have opened for Summer the previous day) and it may well now be.
The hotel is very centrally located and handy for catching the Postbus to the local sites (included in the summer card which proved to be a godsend and saved us loads of euros). We arrived Saturday lunchtime and the resort was virtually shut - shops are closed Saturday pm and all day Sunday, also a lot of the bars weren't open yet for the Summer. I imagine in the height of summer and/or winter, the place will be much more lively.

From the time this place was opened back in 1953, the mother of Gerald Gschwandtner ran the inn with her three sisters. Over the years, the family business was steadily expanded, most recently in 2012 with the building of a new, 500 m² wellness oasis christened the "Tauernreich". And so it was that, over the course of time, an inn was transformed into a hotel, one that more than does justice to the high expectations of modern hospitality. Tradition tried-and-true Today it is Gerald Gschwandtner and wife Inge who run the Tauernhof, constantly keeping a close eye on the wellbeing of their guests. With their children Rudi and Christina, the next generation is already standing right there at their side in order to continue a time-tested tradition on into the future. We look forward to having the privilege of welcoming you here in person! Family Gschwandtner & the Tauernhof Team ... more less
