“Very nice”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Decided to make a stop-over on our car-tour to Italy. Chose the Hotel Austria based on web intelligence. Not a bad choice by any means.

Beautiful surroundings in the Alps. Very nice pool/spa. Food was good without being great. Most staff very friendly and helpful. However, when we arrived we were welcomed by a fairly young lady who completely missed the talent of making you feel welcome. Perhaps just an off-day but not really OK.

At the time of our stay there were quite hectic and noisy building activities going on next the hotel.

Would we stay there again? Probably not as there are so many other great locations in the area.

Room Tip: Be mindful that there are no rooms with a balcony - something you may want for that relaxing and med...

Even an average hotel in Austria is pretty nice but the Hotel Austria in Leck is right up at the top end of the quality spectrum while at the same time remaining informal. Headed up by the "uber-friendly" Strolz family, the supporting team at the hotel go out of their way to make your stay fun and entertaining and the food is superb. If I was to run a hotel, this is how I'd do it.

It was our first time at the Hotel Austria this February. We had a very warm reception upon our arrival and the porter took our luggage and parked our car while we were having lunch upstairs by the lounge area as we arrived earlier than stated check-in-time. We had a two bedroom apartment, which was clean with all the amenities. The apartment was simply furnished, but very clean. The friendliness of the hotel staff was immediately noticeable and their willingness to accommodate a few of our requests were met with enthusiasm. For myself and my husband, the spa was fantastic as it offered numerous options (naked zone and for 16+ only) and the pool area with a quiet room looking out into the snow covered field and the mountains was absolutely wonderful after a day of skiing. We had dinner at the hotel three of the seven nights we stayed and enjoyed the generous salad buffet and cooked to order main course. In fact, even with two strong adolescent boys, a 6-course dinner was more than one could ask for. The hotel's sommelier was very knowledgeable about the Austrian wine and made excellent recommendations to accompany our menu. We liked the spaciousness of the ski room and the sun terrace where one could have a drink and sweets (complimentary!) after a day of skiing. All in all, we have very much enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Austria and have made another reservation for the coming year.

Room Tip: If one would like to have a two bedroom apartment, one should inquire ASAP for the next year as they...

The owners and employees went out of their way several times to make our stay perfect. The owners and family take pride on providing the best possible stay. The facilities and staff are lovely. The teddy club (FREE) babysitting was exceptional and much appreciated

We spent 9 days towards the end of the skiing season - and did not want to leave.
We had a generously sized apartment, big bathroom, all the storage space you could want and beds for 3 kids in a separate room - with nobody having to sleep on the couch.
We had access to all the hotel facilities and services - the pool is absolutely stunning, the wellness area an oasis of calm, the bar is relaxed and comfortable, lots of options for the kids with entertainment and crafts hosted by the lovely Simone. If we didn't want to cook, we could choose to add breakfast or half board by the day, great for flexibility.
The walk to the slopes could be a bit of a drag with kids and skis - but Draghan and his little train were readily available to whizz us all down and back up in seconds. As it was coming to the end of the season, we were allowed to keep our apartment until 5pm on our departure day - allowing us to make the most of a perfect skiing day - with no extra charge.
The Strolz family - all 3 generations - are very present every day and clearly take pride in their hotel - rightly so. Nothing in Lech is cheap - but this place is definitely good value.
Only minor gripes - dishwasher tabs and cleaning sponges were not provided. Cheap items which you can only buy in multipacks far too big for a short stay.

We have just spent our 3rd time at Hotel Austria in Lech - And this last time we spent 2 weeks. We absolutely love it and everytime we just do not want to leave (last year we extended another 4 days...)!

If I go with my wife to London for a weekend I usually end up in a sleek modern hotel. That is ok but only for 2 days and then I want to leave. For a real holiday with the family I want so much more that a polished surface.

Hotel Austria gives us just that - the most amazing character and personality. It grows on you everyday. It is not a bling-bling-hotel on the surface and does not claim to be. It is family owned and managed in the best way imaginable. The kind of service that is priceless and very hard to come by. We love every single detail - no matter perfect or not. It is now "our second home" and did not want to leave.

I would like to stop here and manage the expectations. But to make you more confident that this is a lovely place - almost all guests I talked to during my stay were repeaters and we were -with our 3 consecutive years- basically newcomers.

PS. If you have children this is the one and only place to go. Every aspect is taken care of from transport to and fro skischool, prams, sledges, kids playroom with creative staff, nanny service, kids meals, kids pool etc.etc. D.S.

To Claudia, George & family, Jorg, Betina and Simone and the rest of the fantastic staff - thank you once again for the best holiday ever -again! See you next year - though I truly wish it were sooner!

All the best!

Filip
