Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We received a friendly welcome from the Reception staff on our arrival. We were informed of all the facilities at the hotel and given advice on skiing lessons. The hotel can book your ski lessons and arrange for a ski lift pass. We were given directions on where to pick up our reserved ski’s etc from. Information on the local bus which stops a couple of minutes walk from the hotel. I think the hotel is nicely placed not too far from the slopes and just a short walk to a ski lift and town. Nothing ever seemed too much trouble. You can also ski back to the hotel from the slopes as a blue run goes past the back of the hotel. A nice touch was our own locker to secure our ski’s etc located in the building across the road (which can also be reached via a internal walkway under the road) and our own table reserved for breakfast and dinner. There was a good selection of food at the breakfast and dinner buffet of good quality and tasty. In the afternoon there was an Apres ski of soup, bread, selection of meats and cakes. The waiters were attentive and friendly. A sheet on your table giving you information on forthcoming events, weather, menu for the day etc. Our room was clean with a fantastic view where we could watch skiers passing by. At the end of a day skiing you can use the indoor or outdoor pool, gym, spa etc. A big thank you to all the staff for making our first skiing holiday a memorable one and given the opportunity we will not hesitate to stay at Hotel Der Waldhof again.

This is one of the nicest hotels of any that we have stayed at - large enough to have good facilities but small enough to be friendly. On arrival we were greeted with a very warm welcome and given a free upgrade to one of the best rooms. We particularly liked the fact that we were given a table in the dining room for our entire stay. Also it was expected that guests would make a packed lunch from the buffet breakfast although there was an option to eat in if preferred. The all-inclusive was perhaps not quite as extensive as in a huge Spanish hotel but the quality was excellent. The hotel is a few minutes walk from the town but it is a steep hill. Buses run regularly during the day from the town to the cable car past the hotel and are free to guests. There are indoor and outdoor heated pools, spa,exercise and children’s which are of good quality. Our room was spacious, comfortable and clean.

Warm welcome from reception staff, excellent service from the waiters Dario, Amanda, Jozef - didn't catch the name of the waiter who spoke several languages- and, Barman Jonnie, All very attentive, conversational, and made us feel very at home and relaxed.
Great selection of food at breakfast and dinner.
Excellent Spa facilities, including the heated outdoor pool
Right next to 7b Ski run, so almost ski in/ski out, if you know where to get off.
The free ski bus stops just below the hotel, which makes access to the main ski lifts easy.

We came back to Hotel Waldhof after being here in 2007. So much changes, and for the better. The food is very tasty and a good choice, maybe could do with more than ice-cream most nights for dessert but they are catering for lots of families. Try not to book a small room as its tiny for a two week stay though we managed, just. The staff are very nice expecially George, Harry, Nela and Ester though some struggle with english. If they could only say a few english sentences eg. would you like another drink? Or can I take your plate away? That's all it would take. Where did they find George!? he has turned the hotel bar around completely, it is a pleasure to be there, unlike our last stay. He is the life and soul of where ever he is, and is very conscientious, they are lucky to have him.
I would like towels to be changed when needed by guests, as nowadays with everyone trying to look after the environment they should not be needed to be changed every day. Great having free bikes here too, we wouldn't have enjoyed staying here so much as we love cycling and Zell area is perfect for cycling, cycle paths are brilliant here and in a better state than our main roads at home!
This a a fantastic place to stay and if we come back again to Zell am See we'll be coming here! Miss the place already.

I returned from a weeks stay at the Der Waldhof last Saturday. The building decor , dining room, bar , leisure activities and our bedroom were all truly excellent.
This is THE BEST ski hotel we have stayed in , in approx 20 years of skiing ! Our bedroom was huge and had lots of cupboard and wardrobe space ( with plenty of hangers).
It had a large flat screen TV but as expected, the only english programs we could find were BBC news and BBC entertainment, but the picture on the TV was superb. Although there was only 2 of us , we also had another room with Bunk beds in .
The choice of food at breakfast and for evening meal was fantastic , with something to cater for all and every meal we had was absolutely excellent. The hotel even allowed us to make up sandwiches at breakfast time , for us to take up the mountains for lunch.
We picked up our hire skis from the hotel, which was really easy and saved a walk to a hire shop. The ski buses are free as long as you have a lift pass and the bus stop to go "UP" to the ski lifts or "down|" to other ski lifts were approx 50 to 60 metres from the hotel front and were very easy to access.
There was entertainment in the hotel in the bar , but as we were pretty tired , we only went on one night. The hotel is 4 star , but for the life of me I cannot see why it is not classed as 5 star as it was absolutely brilliant and i would thoroughly recommend anyone else to stay there .Plus there were lifts to all floors and they had a ski locker room and boot drying facility .
Thank you Hotel Der Waldhof for a fabulous week.

Overall very poor experience, hard to believe it is a 4 star hotel.

The rooms are very dated. Restaurant area is relatively modern and the breakfast was reasonable. However, the evening meal was very poor in quality, for example, "bbq night" consisted of a tub of pulled pork with a drizzle of bbq sauce, flavourless chicken wings and some slabs of meat whereby one of the chefs coughed into his hand before picking up the meat and slapping it on the grill. We ate out a few nights to get a decent meal.

We had an upgraded room but the only difference from a standard room appeared to be a bath as opposed to just a shower.

The spa area is OK, but nothing special.

Staff were generally rude. No hello from anyone at reception. When checking out at c7am on the day we were leaving, I was asked why I didn't check out the night before and asked if this was "the first time we had been on holiday" whilst he laughed out loud - incredibly rude and frankly disgusting service, hence the 1 star review instead of 2.

The ski / boot room is a total mess, no lockers for most rooms, old benches and a sofa which looks like it's been rotting in there for many years.

Bar area is relatively dated but service here was generally good and prices reasonable.

The location is decent, being a short walk to the bus stop and town. However I am sure that there are far better places to stay in Zell, which is a great town and the skiing is excellent.

Positive: fast check-in, clean, good food and more than enough choice, pretty spacious rooms, modern spa and swimming pool plus outside swimming pool, close to skibus stop. Waiters are top notch.
Negative: drinks are not included in the all inclusive, personnel is a bit hit and miss - at carnival, one of the staff got drunk and tried and failed to animate the guests during dinner. The cook cutting the meat was not very friendly, which made our smaller children to scared to ask for a piece of roast. This is not true for all the staff though, most were very professional. A special shout out goes to Ferenc, our waiter for the week in the family restaurant, who had all of our rooms memorized by day two (group of 4 couples with children), including our favourite drinks and which children belong to which couple. He even anticipated our requests a few times and sometimes the correct drinks were already waiting for us when we returned from the buffet before we even saw him. That is some four seasons level of service right there.

Our party of six stayed in the hotel der Waldhof in March 2022. We had lots of reservations about the hotel having read recent reviews but the food was nice and there was lots of it.

The hotel is only ski in/out for the hardcore not like some chalets we’ve stayed in but the buses are frequent and bus stops are nearby. If you want to party in Zell, stay in the town, if you just want the option to occasionally party in Zell this hotel is a 10 minute walk. The staff were friendly and there’s lots of space in the bar to sit and chat. Some people just like to moan, don’t be put off by bad reviews.

For the more adventurous, the new link to ski circus makes Zell am See a viable base. Don’t under estimate Kaprun it’s great for snowboarding despite the trek. If the bus queues at Kaprun are off putting get a taxi, not that expensive between a few people.

Johnny the barman at the Waldhof is a great source of local knowledge and very friendly too. We’ll definitely try to visit you in your new summer business compadre.

This hotel is totally underwhelming. The rooms are poorly set up, the bathrooms inadequate and clad with a stale, old urine smell. The food is under par - they still think vegetarians are ok with boiled tinned vegetables and tinned salad. The service is brusque and severe. Resort is fantastic for family ski fun but this hotel should be avoided.

Great hotel with excellent food.
We stayed over the road (or through the underground walkway) in a clean and large family suite.
Staff very friendly and helpful.
Great having lots of free bike to take out - including kids helmets.
Loads of food choices and different every day.
Slight downside of having no iron to use so had to get housekeeping to do it (chargeable).
Two good pools (outside one a little chly though)
Good to get free bus into and from town - as hill a little steep.
Not much evening entertainment happening though - but nice to sit on balcony with free beer and enjoy the views

You can go to the top of the kitzsteinhorn with cable cabin, summer ski and an excellent view. Also the Krimmler wasserfälle are beautifull and take a nice ride over the gerlospass alplenstrasse and Kónigsleiten. Have fun and a nice vacation.
