“Great hotel in a great position”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

We stayed in March 2014 for a ski holiday. Prior to arriving I e-mailed the hotel requesting a quiet, high floor room. Upon arrival we received a warm welcome from Frau Berger and her daughters and was given 2 room keys to go and view. We chose the room on the front facing the road on a high floor. The room was comfortable and spotlessly clean with TV, hairdryer and usual amenities and the bathroom always had hot water. There was some noise from the road in the early hours due to inconsiderate people shouting but this is not the hotel's fault.
The location of the hotel is perfect, near either of the lifts, shops and bars. The table dance bar is really not a problem, we never saw anyone go in or hear anything from there.

Food
Food was excellent, my wife is vegetarian and she had a different tasty and inventive meal every evening which makes a change from other European countries. The salad buffet was amazing and deserts too good to miss. The hotel also organised a birthday celebration whilst we were there which was a nice touch.

Bar/restaurant area
A lot has been said about the décor of the bar/restaurant but we thought it was querky and interesting and different from the norm. The bar opened late and had entertainment on. Elvis was on one evening which was good fun and also a singer called Spacey who we found very entertaining, We had some great evenings in the bar. Staff were friendly and helpful and had a great sense of humour.
Prosecco bar was a lovely area to relax and is really comfortable.

Spa
My wife and her friend spent an afternoon in the spa which they said was nice. Only down side was the massage. The masseurs didn't speak much English and therefore the girls didn't get the type of massage they wanted, one was too hard and the other too gentle! they were also not told to pay by cash so had to go back up to the room for money so if you haven't budgeted for this and wanted to put it on a credit card it was too late.

Staff
Staff were all friendly and helpful and although Frau Berger does appear at first to be a little abrupt, once you spoke to her she was friendly and took pride in making her hotel a nice place to stay. She runs a tight ship and it shows as everything runs smoothly.

My only word of advice to Frau Berger (which is only a helpful suggestion) is to improve the front of the hotel as it doesn't reflect the inside. Get rid of the pictures of food, the plastic signs and change the covers on the tables outside as the pattern is unfortunate as it looks like a stain which makes them look dirty (which they are not) and may put people off sitting outside. You have a wonderful hotel but the outside lets you down and I would hate for people not to see past this!

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor room

Stayed for a week (4-11 June, 2014). Located in centre of Saalbach. Had booked cheaper room in annexe but we were allocated a room in the main hotel. Room fairly small but very clean with good maid service, comfortable bed and small fridge for food and drinks. Only downside was limited view from balcony. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good food. Nice spa area and good free massage.

Enjoyed excellent walking in Saalbach area with spectacular views from neighbouring peaks. Worth another visit.

Room Tip: Balcony of Room 216 faces directly on to hotel next door and view down valley to side is partly obsc...

Just arrived back from a stay at the Berger. We went with a couple of friends and we had a lovely relaxing week. Staff were all very friendly and helpful .food was good and plentiful. The bedrooms were fine with a very comfortable bed, bathroom and shower great with plenty hot water and towels
etc were changed daily and there was a fridge to keep wine and water cool. We had a double balcony which we shared with our friends so it was great to have a drink and watch the sun go down.The spa offers a free massage and I can recommend the back massage it was the best I have had.,We had a great time with lots of walks for all levels, stunning scenery,a good bus service to get to see other places and we met lots of lovely people, even the weather was kind to us.

I stayed here with my husband and friends on the 3rd of June this year for one week. I have to say that the staff worked so hard at making our stay a memorable one, but the hotel is a little dated. The rooms are fine, the bed is the best I have ever slept in on holiday and even has lovely soft pillows. The breakfast/salad bar area is so small only one person at a time can fit in. Generally the food was fine. I can't say I would stay here again, but at the right price etc you never know. I would say go and see for yourself but be warned the weather was very hot even at the beginning of June, read the weather info the week before you travel..

Room Tip: The rooms at the back of the hotel look directly onto the rooms of the hotel next door, this was onl...

Some good some not so good things with this hotel. Very difficult to get into bath unless you are very fit & athletic. Food good , but area to get breakfast & dinner salads very small & cramped only one person at a time could fit in corner which made it very slow. Not impressed having to carry hot buffet food up a spiral staircase to table. Bedroom very spacious &^ well equipped although some of my friends were not as lucky It seemed you either had a spacious room or a good view but not both. wish I had taken my kettle for an early morning drink. Fridge in room very useful. Church bells wake you at 6am every morning & then every 15 minutes from than on.In june when I went most of the other hotels closed as it is off season.

Room Tip: Room with balconies smaller. Larger rooms at back nearer noisy church bells.

Just back today from a week at the sportberger. The hotel is family run and the staff are all very helpful. It was the first time I had travelled alone and had asked if the single room had a balcony and as they didn't I was offered a small double room with a balcony at no extra cost, which I thought was very nice of them. Towels were changed every day and the shower was really great even although it was just a single unit. There was also a fridge in the room which was handy for keeping the wine chilled. The breakfast had all that you needed to start off the day and you were offered a choice of main and sweet for your meal at night, the salad and soup were optional. A very picturesque village and with the weather being good, I had a most enjoyable holiday. Met in with some nice people so it all added to the hol.
