Summer in Zell with a 3 year old - which hotel?

We cannot decide between 4 hotels for July 2008 in Zell am See with a 3 year old. Any advice would be much appreciated. Priorities are decent swimming, child friendly/safe, modern rooms, decent location and ideally a touch of luxury for the parents!

Our preferences are:

Salzburgerhof - looks great but is it too expensive compared to the competition and is it really for children?

Stadt Wien - Only real problem is lack of indoor pool but there are some mixed reviews.

Tirolerhof - Sounds great but no outdoor pool or even gardens? Discounts for children are not great.

Alpenbrick - Appears to tick all boxes except possibly location but no one has reviewed this hotel anyway which puts us off.

We'd like to book by end Jan 08 so any help by then would be a huge bonus.

We have stayed at the Stadt Wien hotel a couple of times. They do get many repeat guests. It is family run and very friendly.The spa area is very nice,and the pool is heated.They are child friendly, with a ball pool and games/books/tv and dvd, on the first floor.They have a wide variety of rooms if you look on thier web site you will see.They have been doing some renovation work, but l would think this will be finished by summer. We have used the bar in the Tirolerhof, it is a very nice hotel,the bar/lounge is more comfortable than the Stadt Wien,but less suited to small children.

We have stayed at the Tirolerhof and it really is not suitable as they do not cater for children at all. There's no outside play area and no kids swimming. Try the one down by the Grand, cant remember its name but it it much better for kids

If you are worried about the pool facilities in stadt wien. There is a leisure centre in the centre of zell and one near kaprun (i think this one is slightly better).

We stayed in the Romantik Hotel - the Metzgewirt. It has a great pool - half indoor and half outdoor, the outdoor bit being surrounded by the garden. The rooms in the new wing where we stayed are modern, bright and clean but you have to pay a supplement for these.

The owners of the hotel are mum and dad along with son and daighter and the grandkids, so they are accomodating to children.

Location is great - 5 minutes from the lake and 5 minutes to the centre of resort, although the hotel itself is on a road with no views.
