“Nice Hotel and position in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2013

This family-run hotel right next to the ski lift, situated in the heart of Obertauern – a well-known tourist destination in the south-east of the state of Salzburg, radiates a friendly welcoming atmosphere. Hotel Gamsleiten, family-run for over 30 years, is ideal for guests wishing to experience the perfect winter holiday. Indulge in a scrumptious 4-course dinner at the restaurant or sample a piece of homemade cake or pastry. After a day on the ski runs, round off your evening at the hotel bar. Guests looking for utter relaxation can pay a visit to the wellness area, including sauna and solarium.

This hotel is led by a married couple. They are warm, hospitable and social. Because the hotel isn't huge, you get a familial and warm feeling with it. They try to make you feel at home and very welcome.
We were there for christmas last year and this year. They make christmas eve special, where santa even came by on his sleigh. Next to us, there are a lot of people who come back yearly to this hotel.
It is situated just under the gamsleiten I lift, which is a great starting point to go skiing/boarding everywhere. If you are a beginner, you can just cross the street and go to the edelweis piste for beginners. As well, the edelweis piste is the piste that is open for nightskiiing. And just accross the street you are able to rent skies, get skilessons and small supermarkts are closeby.

The rooms are clean and austrian like. The breakfast buffet is good. And dinner is a five course meal where you are able to choose from fish, meat or vegeterian courses for the main course. The service is good, and is hospitable.

Wat I really like about this place is the way you feel like home. The service is nice, hospitable and warm. You don't feel like a number in a big hotel, but I felt like a welcome guest in their hotel.
Wat i dind't like was that this year we were in room 127, which is just above the bar. This wouldn't be a problem, because they do seal off the room pretty well, however, room 127 is just above the music installation, therefore on some nights, you could hear the music. However, the year before, we stayed in a room just down the hall, and we didn't hear anything.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Gamsleiten for two nights and we were very pleased with the overall experience:

- The hotel is perfectly located right next to the Gamsleiten ski lift and one of Obertauern's numerous car parks (although ask to park in the hotel car park as the ski one closed at 10pm). It is also just across the street from various ski rental shops.
- Our 'classic double room' was enormous, with a separate seating area next to the window with beautiful views across the slopes, and very clean.
- The bathroom had everything necessary, with underfloor heating as a bonus.
- The room had a fridge to store food in, and a flatscreen TV which had BBC World, BBC Entertainment and CNN.
- We stayed on a half-board basis and have never eaten so much. Half board included breakfast, coffee and cakes in the afternoon and a six course meal in the evening - I was expecting a buffet dinner, so was amazed at the sheer quantity and quality of the food provided! Drinks had to be paid for separately, but were surprisingly affordable. The restaurant was non-smoking.
- There was a ski room with a heated shoe rack to store equipment overnight - there's a door directly from the room to the carpark outside (we made the mistake of walking through reception in our snowy ski stuff the first day)

A couple of comments about the hotel:
- When we returned to our room after a day's skiing my make up bag had been emptied out on the side and my make up mirror was broken. We didn't complain to the hotel as we didn't want to create an atmosphere when we were enjoying the experience, but were slightly concerned that the cleaner had been going through our things, and worse, damaging them (although it could have been by accident).
- Tea making equipment would have been a welcome addition in the room

We thought the hotel was fantastic though, and would definitely stay again.

We both thought that Obertauern itself was a lovely ski resort, with enough slopes of varying degrees to keep us both happy and plenty of bars/restaurants for apres-ski lovers. The majority of people seemed to be Austrian/German on weekend breaks, but being only an hour's drive from Salzburg it's easily doable from the UK for a short getaway. We hired a car in Salzburg and the drive to Obertauern was extremely easy, even in the snow.

We booked for 4 nights for a family ski trip and have found the staff to be extremely welcoming and helpful. The rooms are large and well appointed with good comfy beds. The meals are excellent with a great selection at breakfast and eggs and bacon cooked to order. From 3.30 there are cakes and tea or coffee. Dinner has been delicious and beautifully presented with six courses. We have stayed at 3 other hotels in Obertauern and this one is by far the best. The location is superb and the skiing is very good. Less than an hour away from Salzburg. Brilliant, we will definately come again.

We spent 4 nights in Obertauern and Hotel Gamsleiten. First, Obertauern is only one hour from Salzburgh and are generally "snow secure". However, due to the fact that its a lot of snow, the weather when we were there was relatively overcast. Most skiiers going to Obertauern are German. The skiing itself is pretty good with a number of lifts and good powder opportunities. Apres ski was also pretty lively and we would recommend the "bar" at the top of edelweisbanen. Also go to the top of the gondola lift and try "Gamsmilch", goat milk and rum!! If it has snowed, you have to try the Gamsleiten 2 lift, but this is for experienced skiiers.

The hotel was pretty good, and rooms were clean. Austria has not yet banned smoking in public places, so the bar/reception area becomes pretty smokey in the evenings, so none smokers will likely soon go back to their room. The hotel is virtually 50 feet from the closest lift "Gamsleitbanen 1". Staff is very nice and friendly. Food was pretty good, and breakfasts were quite large incuding a number of choices.

We've stayed here a couple of times now, mostly at the end of the season. Marina and Cristoph are wonderful hosts and sorting out the accom direct with them was a breeze, including the taxi transfer from the airport. The rooms are nice, modern and spacious. The breakfast and dinner are good old hearty food, especially the weekly Italian and Farmers buffets. The afternoon coffee and cakes especially welcome after a hard days skiing. The location can't be faulted, right next to a 6 seater lift. This hotel is perfect!
