For those with a short attention span it’s centrally located, spotlessly clean with excellent food, swimming pool, wellness area and nice staff.
Booked late with Crystal flying Manchester to Salzburg (11th September) with a coach transfer to Soll. Dropped at the hotel where we were met at reception and usual (for Tyrol) guest cards were filled out and our ‘Kaiser express’ bus pass was issued. (Free bus travel between Soll, Scheffau, Ellmau, Going and Hintersteiner See).
Room 103 first floor overlooking terrace area and pedestrian area (only pedestrianised if there is an event on-otherwise traffic does use the road). We had a large balcony with a table and 2 chairs. Fold out airer on balcony was a handy addition.
Room looked to have been recently refurbished and was immaculate. Bi-fold wardrobes with lots of hangers, shelving and electronic safe within (no extra charge). Large dressing type table with table lamp and 32” LCD TV. Large mirror in hallway, coat hooks. 2 double beds pushed together with room to move apart. 2 armchairs and a table. Lots of plug points.
Bathroom, fully tiled with walk in shower with adjustable shower attachment on riser rail and fixed ceiling rose. Vanity unit, large illuminated mirror and adjustable vanity mirror. Wired in hair dryer and electrical socket for shaver/toothbrush. Separate W.C.
New wellness area (Austrian rules-no swim wear in this area-you could always wear a towel if it bothers you I suppose) had steam room, bio sauna, infra red cabin and Finnish sauna with relaxing area. No extra charge for the wellness area and you could request a robe at reception. Slippers to use in this area were available at euro 3/pr. Outdoor (heated) swimming pool.
Breakfast served between 07.30-10.00 with the usual selection of continental type hams and cheeses. Very good toasting machine. Coffee brought to table and you made your own tea from a large selection of teas. Large tea cups! Lots of fresh fruit and scrambled egg/hard boiled eggs each day with bacon and sausage on alternate days.
Dinner. Again as is the usual in Austria dinner is chosen from a selection of 4 (1 vegetarian) options at breakfast time. We also had a choice from 2 soups and 2 deserts chosen at the dinner table. Excellent salad bar (help yourself) which changed most days. Help yourself to baguette and bread. The food in general was of an excellent standard and nicely presented. One evening there is a farmers buffet with regionl dishes and as always it is presented with pride and you are served by the chef’s themselves.
Drinks. Water available at table, just fill a jug yourself and not really any pressure to buy a drink but they were all fairly priced. Dunkel (dark beer) 500ml Euro 3.60, beer or radler 3.20, house wine 2.50. All added to your room if you wanted.
Free cake. Available 15.00-16.00 daily, we didn’t get back that often but de did have a couple of pieces. Coffee was Euro 2.30 but you didn’t have to buy a drink if you didn’t want one.
Lots of walking with usual yellow finger boards and Austrian flag markers on rights of way. We bought and used a mayr 451, 1:25 000, XL edition which was laminated. 7 euro from the local spar shop. As we booked this holiday on a Monday and travelled Wednesday I didn’t get chance to research any walks but we managed some nice walks during the week and I would happily return to the area for more walks.
My only negative is the pedestrian area as mentioned above. It might be a problem if you are a light sleeper (didn't help that we slept with the door open as it was hot at night-but double glazing was excellent and did shut noise out) so it did get a little noisy with traffic and if traders were setting up stalls for the market(s) held on the road during some days of the week. It's not enough to stop me from returning though.
