This was our second stay, and we were really looking forward to the food. It didn't disappoint, just fabulous. There's a fixed menu each night with 3 choices of main course with 4 or 5 other courses. If you don't like anything, they will try to accommodate.
The atmosphere in the restaurant was spoilt by too many very young children - read babies - whose screams are not really what you want when eating such good food. There were also too many other slightly older children who seemed to be out of control of the parents, and were running about the restaurant. Again, not really what you need. There were also many other well behaved children, seems some parents are just not good ones. The pool area was generally ok, but a couple of times, the kids were running riot. The reception staff acknowledged this issue, but in my opinion they need to set some rules with children's ages that are allowed to stay.
Everything was excellent. Breakfast was rich and lovely views.
The staff, the service, the food the location, the pool, the garden, the mountains. Perfect vacation! Perfect place for children!
The room was the best.
There was not any parking place for the arrival in front of the entrance.
- Location -Food - Szilvia who was attending us in the restaurant almost every day. She is such a lovely person. -Nice room and pools.
We had suite 321 for 1 week and could not sleep well as we could hear our neighbour snoring every single night. That was really bothering. Also for toddlers it would be great to have a high chair with belt. However, we highly recommend this hotel as we had a wonderful stay other than above points.
Absolutely loved the great amenities which included a fantastic pool, garden areas with playground. kids craft room, free parking and THE best food i have had in a "hotel" setting. Everything was clean, the staff was super accommodating, the beds were very comfortable.The only thing i would have changed was to have stayed longer!
i really have nothing negative to say about this stay!
Garden, beautitul view, swimming pool and outside swimming lake,
Distance traffic noise from railway and bundes strasse. In Room for two people only one chair, absence of refrigerator
Nice location and view, welcoming and comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast with a selected choice of local product, very professional and helpful staff.
Relatively small sauna area for the size of the hotel. Poor WiFi connection in the room.
It is great hotel, nice and clean rooms with a beautiful view to Alps. Great food and very nice service. I liked my stay a lot would love to return back in future.
Everything was great
few free parkingplace
It was our second visit, so we knew what to expect. Luckily it was 3 years ago, so we forgot some details and enjoyed it again. Usually the hotel is quite pricey, but this week we got special discount. You can expect the best food in Austria, great amenities including swimming pool (with lots of kids), three saunas, relaxation area with water mattresses beds, free parking, etc. Besides, it is located just on the opposite side of the 6-men chair lift and 5 minutes walk from the gondola station. You can almost ski down to the hotel (if not the road you need to cross).
For some reason the hotel decided to close the outside part of the pool and outside jacuzzi. We loved it in our first visit and missed it during the second. Otherwise, it was perfect!
Absolutely wonderful!(This was our 3rd visit,for my birthday.) We were upgraded to a room with terrace and superb views. Loved everything! Cleanliness.Decor..Fabulous food at dinner(5 course meal :gastronomic not ordinary) and breakfast (huge choice ,fresh honey from honeycomb,champagne etc...).and they made me a birthday cake,decorated table,lovely surprise! Like a 5 star hotel,not 4.High quality.Lovely smell of wood everywhere (wood furniture) ,pool in a glass enclosure with snow covered mountains around,sun loungers inside and outside,amazing views,friendly staff,atmosphere. Best hotel in the world(and we have visited hundreds around the world,so much better than chains,family run) can't wait to go back!
That we didn't stay longer!!!
The hotel is conveniently located just 20 steps from the Alpendorf ski slopes.The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The half board includes breakfast, snack (pretty much a fool blown lunch) and dinner. The food is excellent!!! All facilities are great, especially the spa area with water beds relax room. Everything is great and we are definitely coming back! It is a clean, well designed and warm hotel where you feel like at home...
My only suggestion would be to increase the water temperature in the jacuzzi and to provide some English speaking channels in the rooms...
This is a classy big hotel but with a family run sort of atmosphere. High levels of service but in no way obsequious or intrusive. Lovely setting, right across from chair lift. Very friendly staff at reception, the restaurant (Hi Doro and Huba!) and bar (Frank is a real asset.) Room servicing and housekeeping were immaculate. The pool, quiet rooms and sauna are a real addition to the daily routine and epitomise that 'wellness' idea that the Austrian tourist industry promotes. The food was of the very highest quality, providing adequate choice from a bespoke daily menu, with not a single dish that you would not have again. The breakfast buffet was the best I have seen.
I never ate the afternoon meal (a sort of expanded gouter.) Maybe a cake or two and some coffee, but the full array of hot and cold buffet seemed de trop! Here and there some furnishings (crack in bathroom sinks, lifted corner on rug in basement) needed a fixing.
Good location. The staff were also very friendly and happy to help!
TV program is only available in German!?!
The Hotel was fantastic. I would highly recommend it to anyone. We are accustomed to staying in 5 Star Hotels in Dubai and found everything aspect of this Hotel to exceed our expectations. Rupert is a fantastic host and we will definitely be returning.
Excellent hotel cannot fault it.Loved the location and pool was lovely
Such a beautiful location. All the staff were great. I don't understand an earlier comment about the food, it really is fantastic. But, and it's a small but. If you're doing the half-board deal, the evening meal follows a set pattern most of the week. There's little choice, but we only had a couple of dishes that didn't work for us. You have a small starter, followed by a soup. No choice for the first two course, either than yes or no. Then a salad buffet (all you can eat basically, and it's good). Then comes the main, a choice of 3 with a veggie option. Dessert was either a one-option served dish, or a small choice ftom the buffet. The Sunday evening meal is a 5-course no choice one, though the kitchen seemed accomodating if you didn't like a course. All the food is immaculately presented, and children can get their own buffet, and free drinks.
Having to leave. The village is a little quiet in aug/sept, with some hotels and bars closed for the season. St. Johann is to far to walk really.
