“Excelent stay”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

The hotel has large convenient rooms and spa that you nearly wish to stay there the whole day. Cousine was excelent, food was delicious and sophisticated in its preparation and combination.
The bus stop for ski bus was just couple of meters away as well as the ski rental, where you can get 20% discount as the hotel guest. The whole stay was very pleasant, I will certainly come again!

During our last stay at the Alpen-Wellnesshotel Barbarahof****S in Kaprun we did enjoy a very special treatment. The Barbara Mariacher and the Barbarahof-team created a more than home feeling atmosphere. We did appreciate very much the kitchen and facilities during our short ski vacantion.
Thank you for the hospitality!!!

Hotel
Barbarahof is a comfortable, pleasant, family run hotel, well taken care of. It has a cousy atmosphere with two dining rooms, allowing for privacy. It has a wonderful spa, perfectly dimensioned for the size of the hotel, with several types of saunas, a small pool, a silent room, and a massage room. For families with small children it has a children room with toys, and a cinema (we haven't visited). A small gym is also available, perfect for an all body training. Above all Barbarahof has a 5 star cook, that prepares fantastic gourmet dinners!
The room
At our arrival we were upgraded to a romantic room. The room is carefully furnished, very pleasant to be in. The ventilation is natural with a mechanical exhaust ventilation in the bathroom turned on only with the light. This is pleasant since you are not disturbed with a noisy ventilator during the night. One can open the balcony doors in two ways adjusting the amount of air that comes in.
Food
We had five course dinners every evening and a gala dinner once during the week. The quality was fabulous! This was defenetly a five star level!
Service
From the very beginning we were met with kindness! Our son has several allergies which makes it difficult for us to decide to go on vacation where we cannot prepare the special food for him. The hotel owner helped in creating a special meny for him every day! And it was as good and delicious as ours with perfect presentation!
Sport & Leisure
The spa is great in size and offer for a hotel this size. The pool is a bit cold if you do not use the spa first.
Location
The hotel is close to the center but not at a major road which allows for quiet nights. In the winter a small skiing hill is located just behind the hotel, which is perfect for small children or beginners. Ski rent is just about 50m away. The bus stop to the ski slopes is about 150m away, which can be a bit unpeasant if you walk in the ski-boots and carry the skiis.

We visited Austria for the first time in August and stayed at the Hotel Barbarahof for a week. The four of us (2 adults and children aged 8 & 7) had a fantastic time!

We stayed in a suite, which gave the children a separate room from us. They were on a fold out sofa bed, but that didn't bother them one bit. The rooms were spacious, spotlessly clean and well equipped.

We were on half board, and a little nervous about it as we usually self-cater. But we need not have worried as the food was lovely and lots of it! The buffet breakfast was extensive and continuously topped up. We all ended up eating so well that we skipped lunch most days. Dinner was really good too, and the children especially loved the variety of courses and the food. The dining room feels a little formal at times though. The waiting staff were lovely and very helpful.

The hotel location is great. A couple of minutes walk from the bus stops (we didn't have a car), and walkable to the gorge etc. We made good use of the Kaprun card the hotel gave us, and kept our two very active children busy every day.

Fantastic holiday and we would come back and stay again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back for a better view

Absolutely everything about our stay at Hotel Barbarahof was superb.

The rooms are spotless with lovely big wardrobes, TVs and balconies. The huge bed and selection of fluffy pillows is just what you need after an energetic day.

All of the staff are cheerful and there is always someone at hand should you require anything. There is a very friendly atmosphere, alongside total professionalism, throughout the entire hotel.

Compliments must go to the chef. We booked on a half board basis and enjoyed every single course - of which there are many! Normally when staying half board we would visit other restaurants in the area but felt like we would be missing out if we went elsewhere.

The hotel has a very chic bar with an excellent list of cocktails, wines and beers to choose from.

We will remember our first visit to Kaprun with perfect memories thanks to the Hotel Barbarahof.

We just returned from a weeks stay at the Barbarahof in Kaprun.The hotel is lovely & in a great location near the center of everything & the bus stop which takes you to all the main attractions.
The food was really good with a massive selection of fresh salads to start followed by soup main desert & cheese board.The room we had was a little small & the balcony was overlooked but in general everything was really nice & everywhere spotlessly clean.My one criticism is they charge E2.90 for tap water with your meal which I have never seen anywhere before.I would recommend this hotel & the area is fabulous.The staff at the hotel are most helpful.

Room Tip: Choose a room to the front great balcony & great view

We were upgraded to a suite from deluxe room, which was a great start to our stay, the suite was lovely and the bed incredibly comfortable.

The staff were all very helpful, nice and professional throughout our stay. The food was always great, breakfasts offered plenty of choice and dinner was really tasty everyday. It was usually 4 or 5 courses, the soups and desserts were always delicious, the only thing I would say was a slight negative about dinner was that it felt a bit too formal sometimes, particularly for myself who travelled light and casual (jeans, t-shirt and hoodies no shirts).

Got to mention the spa which was great and we really enjoyed the routine of having a sauna after a day on the slopes, then a really cold shower, which helps the muscles recover. The spa does get busy and as everyone is wearing the hotel bathrobes, somebody ended up taking our roomkey one day, so there could be better system for busy periods. Plus a jacuzzi would be a welcome addition, but i'm knitpicking a little bit.

Overall, we were very happy with stay and would recommend Barbarhof to anyone going to Kaprun.
