“AUSTRIA AT ITS BEST”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

My Husband and I stayed at the Hotel Seerose for three nights. We had a Junior Suite which comprised of a double bedroom (Austrian twin beds) with a flat screen TV. There was a lounge area with a settee, table/chairs, tea and coffee making facilities, en suite bathroom and a balcony with a wonderful view.

Breakfast was very good with a choice of several different cereals, dried fruit, fresh fruit, cheeses, hams, freshly boiled eggs and a selection of rolls. There was a choice of fruit juices and coffee or tea. There is a bar at this hotel but it is a completely NO SMOKING establishment.

We travelled independently flying to Salzburg and using the local train to Obertraun Dachsteinhohlen. (The Hotel Seerose is only a few minutes walk from the station).The single fare from Salzburg was 47 Euros (for 2 persons). Whilst staying at the Seerose we enjoyed a lovely day out in nearby Hallstatt. We caught the train to Hallstatt (next station – 2 Euros single) where a little ferry boats meets the train and takes passengers across the lake to Hallstatt which is on the opposite side of the lake. (Ferry fare 2.40 Euros single). We also had a day trip to Bad Ischl. (9 Euros return) which was a lovely place and where one can catch buses to such places as St Wolfgang.

We found Jane and Mark to be the perfect English speaking hosts. They were extremely helpful and gave us lots of ideas and advice on places to visit during our stay. We had a very memorable stay at the Seerose and were blessed with perfect hot sunny weather.

I recommend this hotel to groups, couples and families with children.

We booked two double rooms in this hotel for our big family of 8 to spend the weekend in the beginning of June hoping to enjoy beautiful scenery of Obertraun and Hallstatt. Because of constant raining followed up by the flood we end up sitting in our hotel room for the whole two days having to settle for the beautiful view from our window. The second day the flood was so bad that the water got into the first floor of the hotel and they had to turn the electricity off which left us not only without light but the hot water as well. But! I would like to comment on how well organized everything was. First, they gave us a notice in advance that the water was raising so we could move our cars to a safer place. Second, they served breakfast to our rooms the second morning when there was no electricity already and dining room and kitchen was flooded ,and still managed to bring us HOT coffee! I guess they had to use a gas stove...They also provided us with candles, and toys for our children. The hotel is really nice, neat and clean, so we didn't feel that bad being trapped in it. Special thank you for the hotel owner Jane, who is really nice, she even refused to take charge for the rooms for the second day of our stay with no electricity. If we decide to go back to Obertraun again to finally see the beautiful area, this is where we are going to stay. Excellent!

Mark and Jane are the best hosts that you can have. Very prompt to respond to queries and waited beyond their usual opening hours for my late arrival as a result of the unavailability of trains. They are very helpful with travel advice around the region and serve a terrific breakfast. There are terrific views from all the rooms and is within comfortable walking distance from the train station and bus stop. Obertraun is a quiet and laid back alternative to the Hallstatt.

We were two couples traveling and had a two bedroom apartment with a lake view. The beds were very comfortable and both rooms had an en suite bathroom and a balcony. The kitchen was well appointed and we had views of the mountains surrounding us. The property is family run by Jane and Michael who are English. Downstairs there are bar and breakfast areas. The was an excellent selection for breakfast which set us up for a day of exploring. Parking is available and there are bicycles to hire. We were given recommendations for two restaurants by Jane and they were both excellent. Halstatt is only 5 minutes drive away. This property is excellent value. We would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: All rooms have a mountain view but ask for a view of the lake as well.

Great lakeside location, well maintained rooms, and such charming hosts prompt us to return . This is one of the few places where the cheap price is hard to understand. Its just great value and that makes such a rare and pleasant change! If you are after a nice family style holiday in warm comfortable surroundings , next to the lake but in easy reach of the mountains, you need look no further!

We booked a room for three and it is spacious .The owner is very polite and i am really satisfied with the services. Very near to railway station, price is fair. Require a little bit of walk to jetty and about 30 minutes to ice caves ( a cab that fits 8 costs 10 euros , not expensive but car pooling is still a good idea =) ) . Worth it !
