My wife and I both loved and hated the Berghotel Rehlegg Hotel in Ramsau. In most categories, we loved the hotel and I would give it a “5” in just about everything, but the things we hated made our stay so unpleasant that I would give it a “1” or “O” in those categories. Hence my overall “3” rating for a superior hotel.
Pros: Located on a high mountain meadow overlooking the picturesque village of Ramsau, the hotel is one of the best we have ever visited in terms of views of and from the site. The reception and staff overall were professional, friendly and pleasant to be around. Our room was large, clean and upscale rustic, as was the entire hotel. Breakfast was top-notch, and the evening buffets had a good variety and were excellently prepared and delicious. The restaurant’s terrace, facing east, offered beautiful mountain views and was a great place not only for dinner, and also a pleasant place to while away hot summer afternoons in the shade and with a comfortable breeze. If only we could have spent the nights there instead of our room!
Cons: Unfortunately our three-night stay the first week in August was during a heat-wave that saw afternoon temperatures around 90 degrees F. In the mountains! The lack of AC made our room uncomfortable during the day and well into the night; not only did the room get very hot in the afternoon, the mattress was a heat-sink that stayed hot for hours after dark. Sleeping was difficult, to say the least. Another time of the year, and this would not be a problem, but I would never again consider staying there again in July or August. Fans in the rooms might help, but I did not think of this until after we checked out. They were not offered, so I don’t know if any are even available.
The other negative factor is the dangerous bathrooms. The deep tub lacks horizontal and vertical bars to help people get into and out of the tub without falling. Our room’s tub was the deepest I have ever seen in any hotel, so getting in and out is a tricky situation, at best. In addition, the hotel uses deer antler points as drawer pulls, which is fine as long as the points are sawed off or pointed inward. My wife was gouged on the leg by one that was pointing outward. Both problems could be easily fixed and should be. I have reported these problems to Best Western, but other patrons need to be aware of the problems as well as the good points of this hotel.
