“Could it get any better?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

Fourth visit and as ever the standards the Gappmaier Family set are high. This is a small Hotel but lacks few amenities with a pool, sauna, lounge with free Wifi and a lovely garden with great views available to all. The highlight of the Kohlmais has to be the food prepared by Tobias, young son of the Gappmaier's. As many have said no dish is repeated in two weeks and the courses are varied, sensitive to special dietary needs etc and quite delicious.

Staff are the friendliest we have encountered in many years visiting Alpine Hotels and they work hard and cheerfully to please guests. Cleanliness and comfort are are the forefront too and any reasonable requests seem to be readily acceded to.

Centrally located the Hotel is still quiet and the Church bells are soon got used too! With the facility to make up your own lunch pack from the wide and varied breakfast buffet and a free Joker Card giving unlimited access to lifts, hikers' bus and Public Pool etc a stay at the Kohlmais is great value. We long to come back and meet old friends and new like a lovely couple from Bury who booked on my earlier recommendations on Trip Adviser and were delighted with the Hotel - thank goodness!

I agree with the other reviewers regarding staff, food and cleanliness...all excellent. I also regularly used the small swimming pool, sauna and steam room which were free, relatively quiet and relaxing. One word of caution for single travellers using Inghams for this hotel...although , thankfully, there is no single supplement, you will be allocated rooms ( some rather small ) facing the road and the ski lift with resultant traffic noise...and , of course, no balcony with spectacular outlook.

For our third year in a row we stayed at this fabulous hotel I have wrote two previous reviews and I can not come up with any more positive comments,the hotel and Saalbach are wonderful .The staff are really friendly and helpful and special praise to Sarah who was very young but looked after us very,the food was excellent and apart from the barbecue we never had the same meal or soup twice in the fortnight ,all the positive comments on here are very true,other people who have stayed in other hotels in Saalbach have commented how much better here is,we met many people who were returning for further visits including people from Germany and Belgium so people around the world agree what a good hotel this is.We came here with Inghams and are always delighted with them they do always seem to pick good hotels,it is only a shame that they have decided to stop flying out ofScotland in the summer of 2014 so a lot of regular guests may not be able to get here maybe Thompsons will take this hotel up and we can get here with them

Room Tip: Don't think you will be disappointed in any room but the junior suites are excellent

We recently stayed one week at this hotel, booked through Inghams. Being a small family run hotel makes for a warm and relaxed atmosphere. The hotel has a nice look and feel. Everything is nicely decorated and furnished and kept immaculately clean. All staff were polite and attentive. The food was plentiful both for breakfast and evening meal and was of a high standard. Included in the price were lunch packs, which you made yourselves from the breakfast buffet. Back packs and walking poles were also provided free of charge. The hotel is in a good location, just opposite the Kohlmais lift and not far from the village square and Schattberg lift. The hotel also has a small swimming pool and spa area. We were delighted to have chosen this hotel for our summer holiday in Saalbach.

This hotel is close to the centre of Saalbach, opposite a lift so is in an ideal position. The rooms are very clean, spacious and well-equipped (apart from tea-making facilities which is normal in Austria). However, tea and coffee was available in the afternoon. The owners and their staff were very friendly and helpful. We would love to return to this hotel.

Stayed for 2 weeks on an Inghams summer package deal. The hotel is located just a few minutes walk from the town centre up a slight incline and directly opposite the Kohlmais lift. (There are 3 additional lifts in the area which can be used for free with a "Joker card" supplied by the hotel). The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and the whole place was spotlessly clean. The food was excellent and we never had the same meal twice in the whole fortnight. We paid a little extra for a junior suite which gave us additional space with seating in the room and a balcony overlooking the valley. There is a sit-out garden and a small indoor swimming pool.There were no tea or coffee making facilities in the room but free beverages were available between 4pm and 5pm. A packed lunch is provided each day which you make yourself from the breakfast table. Free internet access and free wifi are available. Saalbach and Hinterglemm are two small villages but have a scattering of bars with entertainment during the week. There are many walking paths in the area and the Tourist information centre were very helpful and they also conducted regular free organised walks. There is a large fun pool near the town centre for the family which is also free with the Joker card. The area itself is a beautiful place and the Kohlmais hotel provided an excellent base
for us to explore the valley. Will definitely return.

This was our second summer holiday at this hotel in Saalbach and it didn't disappoint. We love the village and location of hotel is great, few minutes walk in to the centre and really close to the cable cars. The hotel is spotless, food great and the service is good, we love the fact that we can make up our own packed lunch in the morning with everything provided! We will definitely return again.

Room Tip: rooms with a view of the valley are at the back over looking the garden
