The hotel is situation right in front of the Lake and makes it the perfect location for any type of travelers, Rooms are quite big enough with some rooms on the 2nd Floor with balconies ( You can smoke or have a drink !!! ) without having to run to the corridor quite often. Rooms are pretty basic but meant... More

We could get NO FOOD after driving 6 hours and arriving at 21:30. Not even offered a piece of bread, this is even when the kitchen is still churning out food to the other guests. No more orders could be taken. I have not seen this type of non existing flexibility on any of my travels, ever (I have not... More

Cant believe the lack of tourism, nor really helpful Austrians. Simple things like staff take precidence in lifts and space in general. This hotel was isolated and the only open bar - in July? Service was poor althoug some individual staff members were trained properly, or just courteous. Will probably not come back again especially as so many other villages... More

We've found our little piece of heaven on Earth and it's located in Traunkirchen. This family-run hotel was excellent in all aspects, the personnel is friendly, smiling and makes you feel welcome, the room we booked was modern and clean with a view over the lake and we appreciated many little details that make the stay a great experience.

A well run, excellent hotel. Nothing is too much for the staff and the owners to make your stay the best experience possible. We went there with Great Rail Journeys, and found it to be superb, with good views of the lake an outside eating/drinking area, and, even more important, an inside bar where you could smoke on a wet...

the location is superb - in the middle of the village, handy for the lakeside and the shop and bank and with easy access to the beautiful church and convent and the ferry service.

This is a charming hotel with a lot of positive features. In my experience the staff were unfailingly helpful and friendly, even during very busy periods, and I do not recognise some of the comments which have been posted here previously. The food is excellent, well presented and reasonably priced. So what are the negatives? One major one is the... More

You couldn't want a better base for exploring the Salzkammergut than this friendly and well-appointed hotel just yards away from the breathtakingly beautiful Traunsee. The only drawback was that there was no bar-cum-lounge where you could relax and chat over a drink. Be aware too, that there is little else in Traunkirchen (there is a 'mini-market' next door that is... More
