“Great all round hotel”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

Just returned from a weeks ski holiday satying in the Zum Hirschen.
The room was a nice big double bedroom that looked to have been recently re-decorated, very good facilities.
The staff were all friendly and helpful, when we first went into our room, one of the lights did not work, it was fixed within an hour.
Food was very good, with good alternative choices if you did not like the main meal of the day.
The Picalt family make you welcome, and often ask how your day has been.
Would recommend this hotle for a ski trip, close to the lifts and all the bars and shops in the centre of Zell.

We were really warmly welcomed and offered two drinks. The room was spacey, warm, quiet -even though the hotel is in the center of the village- and decorated in the Austrian traditional way. There was a lively outdoor bar and the restaurant was really gourmet. The breakfast was more than good and the overall service was friendly and professional.

We booked the Zum Hirschen hotel in Zell am See as we were able to get a family room for a short ski break stay during the February half term school holiday instead of the normal 7 night stays.

Our room was comfortable with a balcony and distant view of the lake (across the roof tops!) but it was quiet without any street noise.

We booked half board and both breakfast and evening meal were very good.

Location wise, the hotel is in a convenient location, a few minutes walk from the ski lifts and at the start of the pedestrian area in the town centre.

When our party of four arrived, we were told that they had accidentally over-booked. Normally this would have created a problem, but instead we were comped the top-floor apartment- a beautiful room with a great panoramic view of the Lake and the surrounding Alps. The restaurant service was excellent, however the food was a little pricy. The location of the hotel is very easy to find with the ally to the garage being right off the main thoroughfare. Also, a variety of restaurants, shops, landmarks and a grocery store is all within literally a stone's throw. The Lake is also just a few minutes downhill walk. My stay in this beautiful hotel and magnificent town made me want to retire here. You cannot go wrong with this hotel.

Nice hotel with good food but we were kept awake every night until 4am by people shouting in the street directly outside hotel. Then at 5.30am a lorry would deliver outside with bottles being wheeled down the pedestrian street. At 7.30 am church bells and heavy traffic noise. It's a real shame as the hotel itself was ideal, but I was so tired by the end of the week.
