Hotel Briem
Ranked #5 of 7 Hotels in Westendorf
Reviewed February 15, 2014

If good service, clean hotel, and good food are important to you then this is the right hotel for you. We stayed at The Briem Hotel for a week skiing. The hotel was just 2 minutes from the pretty centre of Westendorf and 5 minutes to the ski lift and access to Skiwelt. The hotel is a quality built property with traditional Austrian decor which we found very comfortable. The hotel is immaculately clean and has quite a few facilities that are worth checking out. We looked forward to meal times and enjoyed the food and variety. We were half board and at breakfast you would have the opportunity to choose your evening menu from 2 choices. All the bar drinks (well red and white wines and beers on tap) were top quality and very reasonably priced. Our party all agreed that we would like to return to Westendorf and The Briem Hotel, maybe on a summer holiday next time.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in September 2013, and found it very comfortable. The food was good and variable, and the hotel staff always smiling and helpful. We only stayed for three nights before having to move on, and the weather could have been better; however nothing we could do about that. The hotel is only about five minutes easy walk to the centre of the village.

As the Briem was full we only visited for the evening meals. On our skiing trips we usually stay here for full board and have the tourist food menu. We have rarely found fault with the meals but would just like to say that on this occasion they were outstanding. It is always a pleasure to stay here but the meals are better than ever. Well done .

This was our first visit to Westendorf and the Briem Hotel. We could not fault our stay there. The bedroom in typical Austrian layout was comfy and quiet,with good views from the balcony. We were pleased to have a shower in the bathroom, which we prefer. Many Austrian hotels often only have a bath, so it is worth checking this out. The typical Austrian food served both at breakfast and dinner was plentiful. It was cooked and presented well. There was a buffet for breakfast and a choice of menu for the evening meal. Service was always very efficient and the staff all worked extremely hard. The atmosphere was good and we met many guests who were on return visits to the Briem. The hotel is nearing the edge of the town but no more than a few minutes walk to the centre. A great location all round, especially with the many opportunities offered both within and around Westendorf for serious walkers. We will certainly be visiting again and will choose the Briem as our hotel.

Once again my wife and myself have just returned from an excellent holiday in Westendorf ( Tirol
region) Austria and an excellent hotel in the Briem. The room was spotless plus the dining rooms
and lounge area.Meals were plentiful as usual and varied.
This is a wonderful area to visit and from there it is easy to get to other locations in the Tirol by
either bus or train.

Room Tip: Front Balcony room, Sunny in the morning, cooler in the afternoon and evening.

We have just completed our skiing holiday and The Briem once more did what it said on the tin. The rooms whilst modest are fine and have good modern bathroom fittings.Both dining areas whether for tour groups or private bookings are attractive and the bar area has a good atmosphere.The heating is very efficient,perhaps too much sometimes.The meals consist of a choice of main together with salad and a soup and dessert.The breakfasts consist of meats ,hams,cheese together with some hot choices .All in all we found the meals tasty and good value.The location is excellent ,just slightly away from the centre but easily reached in 2 mins.Christine and family always run a very well good hotel but this year the staff have been outstanding!!!!
Meals and drinks,were served immediately and plates cleared in a flash.You could not have better service in any 5 Star Hotel or Cruise ship.Keep this staff Christine!! If you want a good 3 Star Hotel, some good facilities and with outstanding staff and service this is the hotel for you.

We have just returned back from a week's stay here with Inghams. We had a fantastic time and I wanted to let other skiers know what a great place this is to go to. Having not seen many reviews on here from Skiers I wasnt sure what to expect.
The hotel is located a short 250 meters to slopes and is situated just outside the main village (literally a 2 minute walk) but I personally preferred this as it was a little quieter. Not that the village is noisy, mainly the church bells!!
The hotel was spotless!! Very Austrian in its decor which was very homely and very efficiently run. We went half board and enjoyed the evenings meals, Breakfast were perhaps the only thing I felt were lacking option wise in comparison to other hotels but still a good variety. There were only a few english people at the hotel and perhaps the whole resort was more German dominated.
Westendorf and the Ski welt area was brilliant, again everywhere was spotless, the toilets on the slopes were all very clean which is something I have found not to be the case in Italy or France.
The prices of food and drink was very similar to here so there wasnt anywhere you felt like you were being ripped off. Good Apres ski if you wanted it but still felt like a typical Austrian town if you wanted to avoid the bars.
I would definately return back to Westendorf or the surrounding ski welt area. An up and coming place for sure!

Room Tip: Choose a bath as they come with a shower anyway
