“summer holiday in Saalbach”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This was our second summer holiday at this hotel in Saalbach and it didn't disappoint. We love the village and location of hotel is great, few minutes walk in to the centre and really close to the cable cars. The hotel is spotless, food great and the service is good, we love the fact that we can make up our own packed lunch in the morning with everything provided! We will definitely return again.

Room Tip: rooms with a view of the valley are at the back over looking the garden

Stayed here as part of a two centre Inghams deal.
This was our second hotel and superlatives fail me. From the initial warm welcome, to the smiling staff, this was a gem.
The food was freshly cooked and was plentiful.
Well done to the owners and staff.

We have had a great experience at Kohlmais and felt that it was very good value.

The staff is the friendliest we have experienced in Austria; the location is perfect -- easy walking distance to many lifts, the quaint village, and a ski rental shop (intersport is next door) and there is plenty of sunshine coming through the windows and on the balcony; and, everything within the hotel is really nice -- very clean, nicely-decorated rooms that are well-organized, the restaurant serves tasty and healthy food sourced in Austria, the swimming pool and sauna were clean and warm.

I had been looking for a hotel that offered luxury-like accommodation and services that were "5-staresque" but didn't want to pay for all the bells and whistles and I feel that is what we got! We were traveling with two children (2 and 6) and we had a comfortable and fun experience here!

Returned this year for another family ski trip and very happy with our choice. Gappmeier family were so pleasant, helpful and welcoming. Spotlessly clean and comfortable; spacious,quiet and right beside slopes and lifts. Breakfast and food in general very good; our only caveat was the main-4th- course of the evening meal which was not up to previous standard but other courses were as good as ever. Hope to return again next year which speaks for itself.

Lovely hotel, family run with nice atmosphere.
We stayed for New Year for a ski holiday. Excellent location for the slopes - one of the main cable car lifts is across the road. Or a short walk (5mins) to all of the other cable cars.
Also across the street are 3 lively apres ski bars - busy until around 8pm in January, maybe later in the later months with higher temperatures?
Rooms are acceptable standard (v. good for a ski hotel), immaculately clean and very warm.
Pool, relaxation area, sauna and steam room are lovely. Very luxurious and peaceful.
Now on to the food - this was the biggest surprise of the holiday. The food was absolutely delicious. Breakfast, the usual buffet with fruits, cheeses, cereals, bread, pastries, eggs etc..
The evening meal consisted of salad bar, choice of 2 soups, a starter, choice of 3 main courses and a sweet. The standard was excellent and presentation also good.
I would recommend this hotel for young, old, couples, families alike.

After 12 year's holidays in Saalbach, tramping over every inch of the beautiful trails available, we have settled on the Kohlmais for the last three years. A family business (see earlier reviews) that doesn't need much more description as I think I have covered most of the things on offer in earlier reviews, with food, accommodation and service top notch as always.

Sadly disability has prevented extensive walking in the last two years but, located opposite the Kohlmais Cable Car station and a short walk to the village, you are in easy reach of all the facilities the excellent free Joker Card offers and lifts allow easy walking down the Mountains if you can't manage the uphill grind any more.

The Gappmaiers strive to give their guests all the facilities they can. They are attentive hosts, without intruding into their guests holiday. The dining room is tastefully furnished and is an ideal place to enjoy an excellent meal with pleasant conversation. Tea and coffee is also available in the afternoon to enjoy in the lounge.

To answer an earlier query about Wifi - it is available in the lounge area. Quite useful if you have to keep in touch with family. A PC is also available.

With wonderful views of the valley and a lovely garden the Kohlmais is a very pleasant place to enjoy yourself in the peace and quiet of the Glemm Valley.
If you want to get away from it all you can't do better than the Kohlmais and there are no better hosts than Margit and Freddy Gappmaier and their family. We wholly recommend it.
