We stayed three nights over Christmas and were impressed by the host, Christof's, dedication to restore the villa to its 19th century glory. Dinner, included in the price of the room, was delicious and the staff...

Everything was perfect: location, room, the view, the food, the staff, the owners. A very good quality price value. The baths with thermal water end radon were very pleasant, relaxing and useful health. Thank you for this wonderful holiday.

What an amazing gem in Bad Gastein! We stayed here on a recommendation of friends and so glad that we did. Room was large and clean. Christof invited us to try having dinner in the restaurant on the first floor and we loved it. Just like going back in time; old-fashioned elegance and charm and delicious food. Can't say enough...

it was like stepping back in time arriving in Villa Excelsior! Classical music accompanied our every step! Beautiful antique furnishings and decor added to the atmosphere. Staff were gentle, polite and super efficient. Breakfast was lovely and dinners were incredible value! Stunning views from the top floor bedrooms windows.

Prompt service, friendly staff; we stayed in clean rooms, comfortable but the furniture seemed a bit too 'period piece' though well maintained. Free wi-fi (connection is not always the best), free parking The place is up the hill and one needs to do the homework properly on how to arrive there (our gps routed us through the parking garage --...

Here is a hotelier who understands how to run a hotel. The setting is brilliant. The service outstanding. The atmosphere is what guests always wish for but very rarely find: a hotel with soul! Service is impeccable, no request is too difficult. Christoph, the owner, genuinely wants to have happy guests. A four course dinner at Euro 10 is served...

This is a quirky beautiful hotel. The breakfast is varied and tasty. The views from the balconies are stunning. The bedrooms are large and spacious and very clean. The two dinners we ate there were delicious. Perhaps the most interesting and enjoyable part is the owner - Christoph. He was a wonderful host. Very entertaining, personable and very funny. He...
