Just visited there for a long weekend season start skiing. I spotted out the hotel (tried the restaurant a couple of times) on previous stays in Zell am See, but this was the first time, they had vacancy. The hotel is a family run business, must have had a pretty impressive expansion during the past years, since they own most of the surrounding premises.
Location is a really big hit: Zell am See city center, at the edge of the pedestrian zone. Free parking in the garage under the appartement building. Both main square or the city center is only a few steps away. Zell am See ski slopes talstation; is not close, but accessible on foot, if the bottom slopes are open (were not yet).
Our rooms were in the hotel building, newly build or renovated rooms, in an excellent condition, cleanliness really meets the highest standards. Spacious bathroom with a separated toilette and a shower. Furnishing is nothing special, but far ok for its category. I personally liked the big wardrobe, there was enough space to put up all the stuff...
Breakfast: pretty good selection, was really satisfied with it.
Dinner: I am not really a half-board guy, really prefer eating out, but this time we were only boys and took the easiest way. 3 course menu, with a 2 option selection on the entree. Mainstream dishes, nothing special but a pretty good value for the 12euros.
There is also a sauna and relaxing area available, enjoyed it much after freezy wholeday skiing.. .
Overall we really had a high opinion on the family business style, continuous efforts are visible, both family members and staff are really nice we had a really good time there. Not to forget about their admirable practice of leaving the hotels reception desk for the prettiest family member, really worth a look for that reason too... :)
