We were during 10 days in May: mum,dad, and son 3 y.o. Most impressive for me is how everything convinient and well thought-out . You dont have to watch out your kids every second, and spend some time for yourself. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. The food is good, but for us breakfast is not suitable due to lack of hot cereal (onli rice pudding) and pancakes. Mavida spa is highly recommended as well. If you thinking to visit I recommend you come to website of the hotel - a lot of pictures and information. Wanna back again

We had our second stay with this hotel in February 2011 after first going in December 2009. We came back because we were very impressed the first time around. We loved the food served at breakfast lunch and dinner, we were happy with how close we were to the slopes, we were satisfied with the facilities for children including the pool and the kiddie club, and we were very impressed with the dedication and service shown by the staff. We liked the daycare providers. Most memorably, when we lost our camera for a day, a staff member let us borrow her camera until we found ours again, and then transferred the fotos onto our camera.
When we came back this year, there was a bit of a letdown. We felt the food service, while good, was not as high as last year, especially in terms of variety and made to order cooking. The facilities are still in good shape for the kids, but it would be nice if the rooms were less Spartan. Everything was great again with the daycare providers. But we did feel that, with a few exceptions, the front desk staff was not as helpful as last year. Instead of being provided with all the information and options we needed, we felt we had to drag the information out of them. There was also not the same level of service and devotion to guest’s needs. Part of it seemed attributable to the lower level of English among the staff compared to the prior year, which made it harder to communicate at times.
I still recommend this place, and am thinking of returning. But I’ve dropped my overall rating from 5 to 4.

This was our third time at Hagleitner, and it was great as always.

As our skiing holidays always last a week, the facilities of the hotel as well as the service you get allow you to get the most out of your holiday time.
The kids have more than enough to do and are treated to a fantastic buffet meal (french fries, pasta, pizza, and other yummy things that kids love) every night.
The convenience is great: the ski school comes to the hotel to book the lessons, the ski rental comes to the hotel to measure your sizes and equip you, there is a shuttle bus to and from the ski lift and the kids are accompanied to their ski lessons and the lunch breaks in between! There are also lockers near the ski lift specially for Hagleitner guests!

As a special treat for the parents, there is the Spa and Fitness facility of the neighboring Mavida hotel (reachable by indoor tunnel). The facilities are superb and top class!

For us this is the only choice for our winter holiday!

Our stay with Hagleitner was brilliant. The food, service, mini club, kiddy club and of course the spa was all fantastic. Would definitely recommend it to any one :-)

We are a family with two children, 3 and 7 years old, that spent a week skiing in Zell am See and stayed at Hotel Hagleitner for the second time in two years.
We had a great skiing week in Zell am See and a very nice stay at Hotel Hagleitner.
We especially appreciated the friendly atmosphere, great food both for children and adults and the mix of family facilities and great spa. The younger child spent most of her days in the the Kiddy club which she enjoyed and the older one was in ski school for 5 days out of 7. I doubt that the 7 year old would have enjoyed staying in the Kddy club for 7 days (lacks variety for older children) and so ski school was perfect. The Hotel also made some nice treats for my daughter for her birthday. My only critique is that my 3 year old still needs naps in the afternoon and there are no facilities for that in the Kiddy club. We all enjoyed the inside pool for families. However, my daughter has sensitive skin and she reacted very badly to the high amount of chlorine in the pool (much more than from other pools). I would recommend that the hotel encouraged guests to take a shower with soap before entering the pool. It makes the water more clean and thus less need for high amounts of chlorine.
When reserving a room make sure to familiarize yourself with the size, layout and location of your room. Rooms are spread out around the big hotel area and are different in size and layout. This is easy from the hotel´s website.
In short:: Hotel Hagleitner is not perfect but it comes close to perfection for families. We will definitely be back.

Thanks a lot for your detailed review and your plaudit. It is very good to hear that you also enjoyed your second stay in our family hotel and we are pleased that you will come back soon!
Concerning your negative critique we would like to answer as follows:

- As we have had the feedback concerning the lack of programme for teenies more often in last time we decided to offer a special programme including a new teeny room for the older kids.
- We kindly inform you that children who are staying in the Kiddyclub can certainly have their nap in the sleeping room of the Minclub.
- We would like to thank you for informing us about your daughter's reaction to the chlorine in our indoor pool. It is difficult to enjoin any special hygienic rules on our guests if they are not compulsory, but we will try to find a way to indicate this in a polite way.

We send best regards to Luxembourg and look forward to meeting you soon again!

Our 2nd stay after 4 yrs = We are family with 3 children: 12 y, 5y and 20 mths.

Unfortunately the service was very poor this time - the reception "girls" do not have a clue or do not care what is happening in the hotel.
They gave us falls information about the services e.g. ski school. They do not inform additional services offered.
- unfriendly

The only reason we chose this hotel is because they have services for all our children.
but generally speaking I got a feeling that they do not like families with children. Th concept is great but this time the stuff was just not updated or trained for this.

The hotel has all the fun facilities to offer but unfortunately the current team use them poorly. e,g, outside play ground, pool, toys - children can play while the stuff talks and sits around.

Ski school and kiddy club lost ski boots of our child - did not help sorting this out. We had to rent another pair of boots.
The child care took her pants off in the kiddy club - gave the pants for somebody else + did not help to find them. They were found late that night and I had to ask for them.
They have a habit of undressing children's pants ??? Also our son was without pants (normal in-house pants) when picking him up.

The child was left in the hotel after the lunch when she was supposed to continue the paid ski school - No one know why and they just kept accusing each others ( Kiddy club and ski school ) Parents were not informed of this.

She had to eat with her hands - She asked for a spoon and they gave her more food!! Kiddy club personal speak very poor English.

The hotel bus driver does not know anything abut the hotel ski school ?? He was supposed to drop people to the school.

Mini club children were supposed to go outside for the park - did not do this for five days.

Even the give away gifts You need to ask for.

food: Everything is offered and there is plenty of it. Everybody surely finds something to eat. It is not necessarily super healthy and lots of ready made ingredients are used. But big PLUS for trying :)

Rooms: big, clean but a bit of old fashioned, ascetic - no lift if You are in 2nd floor, like us.

Spa: good, friendly and lots of varieties.

Honestly I could not recommend the hotel to my friends with children at the moment, I got a feeling that us, families with children, are not welcome. sorry!

Thanks a lot for your detailed review and the time you took for it. It is great to heat that you enjoyed our offer in our wellness and spa area.

Concerning your negative critique we have had a meeting with all affected department heads and we would like to respond to these important points as follows:

- As we are a hotel specialised in families with children we are really sorry you had the feeling that families are not welcome. It is even not possible to stay without children in our hotel and all staff members are used to the exposure to children and even babies. Families with children of all ages are welcome in our hotel!
- Our Mini-Kiddyclub offers a huge programme with indoor and outdoor activities and of course the outdoor activities are subject to weather alterations.
Concerning the eating habits in our Mini-Kiddyclub we have to say that every child gets cutlery for their meals. We hope you'll understand that our team sometimes allows the kids to eat with their hands if there is pizza or chicken nuggets or something similar on the menu.
There is no habit of undressing children's pants at all in our Mini-Kiddyclub except in the case that a child has peed in their pants e.x. For this case we kindly ask all parents to leave a second pair of pants and shirts in the Mini-Kiddyclub.
We are really sorry the ski boots of your child were lost in the Mini-Kiddyclub. Certainly, this shall not happen. But we would like to mention that Annabella, the head of the child care team, as well as Bianca from the reception tried to find the boots and gave you a helping hand. Once again we would like to apologize for this displeasing occurrence.
- It is right that our bus driver's job is to bring our guests to the ski school. We hope you'll understand that he does not know about the ski school details as for example meeting points as this is job of our front office team and the ski school.

We are really sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay in our family hotel this year.
Best regards from Zell am See,

Ilona Hagleitner & Team
