Hotel Rudolfshof
Ranked #13 of 30 Hotels in Kaprun
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Over the summer the hotel is geared towards children. There were child minders, indoor and outdoor activities, it's small pool and even 6pm eating with a child minder for the children, if desired. We were part of a family group and thoroughly enjoyed our 11 night stay. Despite the hotel's many good points we would have preferred to stay at a more adult focused hotel had we been a couple.

We had a spacious, well-equipped, deluxe double room with delightful views facing south-west towards the high mountains.

Adult facilities, other than the health spa, were limited to a reception area bar, very small terrace and sunbeds on the grass outside the pool. Indeed, much of the outside space was given over to parking. Presumably the restaurant doubles as a bar in the winter.

Breakfasts and dinners were first class, with a wide choice of tasty food. Bottled wines were expensive but the house wine was reasonably priced and drinkable. Picnic lunches, afternoon snacks, bike hire, room safe and Zell am See - Kaprun card were all available at no extra charge.

The staff were excellent. The few irritations - out of date drinks in the mini-bar, small bath towels - were minor.

Greatest holiday in years! Exceptional good hotel for young children! Our kids still talk about the Kidsclub (daycare). Great breakfast, afternoon snack and diner (half board). The food can compete with any Michilin Star restaurant. So good that you also expect starclass service, but staff is not competent enough (f.e. the waiters have no knowledge about the wines). Luckely, because now prices/quality is excellent.

We enjoyed our stay in this nice friendly hotel (Feb 2013). Food is excellent (and bio!). The kids-club is simply fantastic (9-21, su-fr); the kids (3&5) love it and is great relief for the parents. The hotel has a nice swimming pool and spa-area. Skiing area is quite good, simply by taking the hotel shuttle or driving down to the lifts by car (easy parking). Like all ski-areas in Austria, it isn't like the big ski areas in France but ok.

A week over new year was our fourth visit (the third with our children, we went once as a couple for a long weekend). As ever, staff were faultlessly attentive and caring, with an excellent balance of friendly and relaxed yet professional and sincere. But most of all, I have spent the last week trying to think of an appropriate superlative to describe the food. Choice, quality, service were all beyond superb - better and more interesting than five star London or Asia venues I am familar with. Every day the food was a real treat, an endless variety of interesting and tasty starters, especially loved the creamy soup, wide variety of fresh, crisp and tasty salads, main courses were always perfectly cooked, whether meat or fish, and sweets were wonderful (plum, caremalised sugar and cinamon was absolutely amazing). Lovely cellar (try the Blaufrankish). Menu is certainly varied, not too outlandish, all brilliantly prepared and presented. And must not forget to mention the (properly) poached egg at breakfast. The food alone is a good enough reason to visit. The rooms are comfortable and clean, and the spa is a great, refreshing way to end a day skiing. Cocktails were excellent too. More than child friendly, children are really welcome; this is a great hotel for a family. Oh - and why we went in the first place....we quite like the skiing in the area. Yes, it is better to have a car, but that is true more or less anywhere where you would want varied skiing. The combination of Kitsteinhorn (the glacier) and Zell am See are reliable throughout the season, good snow, good for varied ability and have an interesting variety of runs.

Room Tip: The higher standard rooms in the new section benefit from a lift - very desirable after a hard day...

We stayed one night on our way to Grossglockner and unfortunately did not have a chance to use all that Rudolfshof offers. The location is excellent and the people are very friendly. The breakfast choices seem unlimited – healthy breakfast bar, a la carte local specialties, you name it. One thing certainly worth mentioning is information. We received advance notices of a changed access on the night of our arrival due to a local fair. They also phoned us up on our way to inform about late check-in changes and how we can be admitted. Undoubtedly, the rest that Rudolfshof offers must be to the same high standards.
