“Lovely hotel in a lovely location”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

If you are looking for a typical Austrian hotel in a beautiful Austrian village; if you are looking for a friendly, family run establishment with excellent food and drink, hospitable, efficient, friendly service from all the staff; if you are looking for all of these then look no further, this hotel has it all. In addition to all of the above the hotel provided us with free use of bicycles, the use of the indoor swimming pool and even provided us a packed lunch albeit we were only on half board.

My wife and I have just returned from a most enjoyable week spent mostly walking around the lovely Westendorf region and after a challenging day on the hills it was so nice to be greeted by the friendly sisters and all of the staff, they always made you feel really welcome.

We met lots of very nice fellow guests some of whom have returned year after year to the hotel. My wife and I will hopefully add ourselves to that list.

We stayed at the Sporthotel Jacobwirt for a week in early September and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The hotel is one of the few remaining genuinely family run establishments we have visited and this engenders a feeling of hospitality towards their guests. The hotel is immaculately clean and although the rooms (at least the standard ones) are simple they provide a good level of comfort and everything works as it should. The food is excellent - we were on a half board package and the breakfast certainly set us up for the day! Dinner was unfailingly delicious with 4 courses every night including a self service salad selection and help yourself cheese board for anyone with spare capacity after the generous preceding courses! The dining room operates on a combination of table service and buffet and the staff are charming, attentive without being overbearing, and more than happy to accede to individual requests wherever possible.

Sadly we were not particularly lucky with the weather but the area has some splendid walks and majestic mountain views, and the Jacobwirt has a very nice indoor pool and a sauna so we were not deprived of or daily dip!

All in all I would have no hesitation in recommending the Jacobwirt as a friendly, well run hotel.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have balconies ... nice to have one if the weather is good, so suggest you request one...

Have literally just got back from a week in Westendorf, staying at the Jacobwirt. What a lovely hotel. Typically Austrian with all the wooden beams, window boxes beautifully decorated. The accommodation was first class and the staff are very friendly and efficient. Loved the food, (beer.....) and everything about the place. Lucky that we had beautiful weather with temperatures in the mid 20's which made the walking great. Plenty of excursions available if you want but we decided to walk and ride on the chairlifts surrounding and had a very enjoyable week.

We stayed for a week in this Hotel run by three sisters. All were very friendly and helpful as were the staff. We were disappointed with our room 320 on the top floor as it was dark very hot and had only uncomfortable U shaped bench seating. We were shown another room which was too small and seating like a school desk for two. The problem of the seating was cured by putting in a comfortable chair. We could not cool the room down despite open door to the balcony and a further window. The duvets were too heavy for summer. Sleeping was difficult with the heat. The carpet in the room was shabby. The bathroom was modern and very good. The 1st night there was no choice of main course on the other evenings either two or three courses all other courses no choice. The food is generally good we had only one poor main course in the week. it is straight forward cooking suitable for most people and you do know what you re eating. The breakfasts were standard continental style and were good.The Hotel is very quiet in the evening and it would seem most people turn in early. There is only one English channel on TV BBC World. With satellite service the way it is today and the variety of different languages it is easier to give more choice. One boring news channel is not good enough. We were on a bargain trip from Scotland and must say it was good value but if paying the normal full cost it would not be as good. The weather was very good and the scenery superb. We did enjoy ourselves and that was the main thing

This hotel is absolutely excellent, in my opinion. It is clean and well-kept; the staff, without exception are all truly polite, friendly and hard-working.
The food is excellent. We were never overfaced with piles of food, but were presented with extremely tasty meals, cooked to perfection. The cold potato salad is a must. The pumpkin soup is absolutely scrummy! Breakfasts are plentiful and offer a lot of choice, cereals, fruit, cheeses and meats, eggs etc. You won't go hungry!
Anna Marie and her staff are all very attentive and give everything their personal touch.
The rooms are spacious and cleaned daily.
The pool is lovely too, very clean and tidy and it was great to cool down in there after a day in the extreme 36 degree heat!!
We would love to return next year; Westerndorf is a lovely village with a nice sedate social scene. It's lovely to sit in a bar, with a cool beer watching the world go by. We didn't encounter any rowdy groups of drunks; instead one evening at a brass band concert in the village at the bandstand, there were all sorts of ages, elderley to children, teenagers too, all enjoying the evening, ( could not imagine such a scene in the UK!)
The Tyrolean evening at the village hall was also a great evening; big strapping Austrians in leather lederhosen!
A truly lovely and memorable holiday.
Thank you
