I stayed here with a mate on a mountain biking holiday around Zell am Zee in July 2011 (apologies for not being massively up-to-date). The location of the hotel was excellent for us - right in the heart of the town, close to the lake and easy to cycle to and from.

On arrival, we were greeted by a formidable hostess, who was extremely efficient and ran the place well. We stayed half-board, which, even though it was the height of summer, was very welcome, as the food was hearty, tasty and much-needed after some tough cycling during the day!

The rooms are pretty basic but served our needs quite well. It's not the quietest location (situated on a main pedestrian thoroughfare with street cleaners running by in the morning), but we thought the hotel was very good and would stay again.

I stayed at this hotel with my husband for 3 nights and loved it.
It is so central in Zell am See, most central hotel! We had a room overlooking the back of the street where there was an Irish bar so if you had the window open it was tough to sleep! So maybe request a room in a quiet area of the hotel!
The rooms are lovely- really clean.
The shower is amazing!!! Bathroom is spacious and so clean and modern.
The interiors of the hotel are lovely- really modern and crisp.
The staff are really lovely,especially the lady working at the breakfasts in the mornings. Front desk are lovely too.
We got the 'summer card' with this hotel which gave us free entrance to lots of things- cable cars, cruise on lake, sun bathing areas etc.
Breakfast is excellent. Fresh fruit and hot breakfasts- really brilliant.
Loved this hotel, will certainly be going back.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room

This hotel is one of the worst we have ever stayed in. It fell down in so many different ways. Here are just a few examples of the incidents that occurred which spoilt our time there. On arrival just before 9 p.m., we received instructions to come straight to the table if we wanted to have a hot meal. On numerous occasions, there were no staff at the bar. On one evening, the receptionist informed us "it was not her job to go and find the barman" after we had been sitting at the bar for some time. A few nights later, there was no barman again but she was able to serve some drinks, however, no schnaps available as the barman had the key and he wasn't on site. The following evening, the key was there but they had run out of schnaps! Guests should be aware that the only spirit available on an "All inclusive" package is schnaps. Drinks on this package only available 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., however, we couldn't even purchase a drink after this time as the bar closed at 10 p.m. every night. The barman was generally unpolite and upset a few guests with his attitude. We were only there for a week but it took 4 days for them to inform us that there was a splendid roof terrace with wonderful views over the lake. This information wasn't available in any of the literature that we were given after our arrival which we had to ask for as there was no indication in our room about meal times etc. We were told at the Welcome Meeting that we would receive our departure instructions 48 hours before we left but we still hadn't received them on the morning of departure. Our tour rep confirmed she had left them at the reception which was unmanned at the time but the details were never passed on. Our room on the front was hot, stuffy and noisy. We had 2 choices - open the window for fresh air but not sleep because of the noise, or close the window and not sleep because it was too hot!

Room Tip: If you have to use this hotel, request a room on the back. It will be your only chance of a decent...

Best hotel experience in our Austrian trip (7different locations). The new part of the hotel has very large, modern, elegant rooms. Garage is key if you are driving. I recommend booking with half board option. For very little extra you have a very good dinner with different choices. Breakfast is particularly rich. Location is perfect lake is 100m, bus station 200 m, everything you might need is within 2 min walk. The wellness area needs a little bit of extra care and attention.

We stayed at the Fischerwirt as part of a Thomson Holiday Package. The staff were excellent and extremely helpful. My wife has a lactose intolerance and the chef went out of his way to make sure that she was fully catered for. Although it can be quite noisy on some nights it is not that bad,

Forget any negative reviews you've read - this is a wonderful hotel. It's small, friendly and all the staff get to know you by name very quickly. Stephan, the friendly barman, royally entertains his customers by playing the guitar at ten o'clock a few times a week, when the all-inclusive drinks stop. Monika the owner, is a charming lady who actually rang us on our last morning to say goodbye because she could not be present in person.The vegetarian meals were the best and
most inventive my husband has ever had. I found the food excellent, plentiful and very well presented. It was always four courses except on festival nights when it was five. We were there for 2 weeks and at all times the standards were high, and the staff attentive.This is the best value for money we've ever had in Central Europe and we can't wait to get back. A.L. Bradford

Room Tip: Front rooms, and high rooms have a balcony and are quieter.
