“Lovely & cozy hotel at prime location”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

At first we planned going to Wolfgang-see. Due to there's the need to change to another bus at St Gilgen we decided to stay at the place instead as we had quite a few luggages. We had made the right choice of staying at this small cozy hotel. From the Salzburg bahnhoff we took the postbus #150 (at E6.5) and it stopped just a few minutes walk from the Hotel Schernthaner. The hotel locates in the centre of the town and simply just a short walk to the cruise dock with ferries going to Wolfgang and Strol and the cable car station. The outside of the hotel looked quite homely and picturesque. We received a warm wel-come from the owner on arrival. The room was very clean and beautifully decorated. The large balcony opened out to the hill-side, though not the lake-view, the scenery was beautiful and calm. Its a perfect hotel for a relaxed holiday. Its a surprise that the hotel has lift eventhough it has only 3 floors. The breakfast is quite Ok but it would be perfect if it can provide some hot food especially on some cold mornings. This hotel is good value for money providing very friendly and helpful service.

We were accommodated in this hotel for seven nights. Hotel has a very friendly atmosphere. The staff is very helpful, friendly and has a great interest in their clients. Very important things for us - 1/Excellent location 2/Home atmosphere 3/Antique style concept 4/Clean rooms 5/Good price 6/Noiseless clientele = This hotel is really excellent! Just one note only - We would appreciate greater variability of breakfast.

St Gilgen, located in the Salzkammergut region, is very scenic with lakes & mountains, and for me, an urban city dweller, Austria brings back fond memories. For our return trip, we are again drawn back to St Gilgen, and Hotel Schernthaner remains our favourite place to stay. We last stayed at their apartment about 8 mins walk from the hotel. It is a pity that the apartment has been leased as it offers an unobstructed beautiful lake view.

Annaliese's warm hospitality and winsome smile is a great welcome. We love the homey feel of the breakfast dining area and the hearty breakfast provided. The hotel is centrally located and it is a short walk to the town centre and the lake area. The beautiful waterfront promenade where the boats to St Wolfgang and Strobl departs from, has many cafes, restaurants and souvenir shops. We had dinner at Wirt Im Greis (about 3 mins walk from hotel) and dinner for 4 persons costs Euro 61.80. It is a popular restaurant and the food is good and reasonably priced. The only improvement needed is that the wifi access is very weak especially in our rooms (13 & 14).

As we have a car, we made day trips to Mondsee (14 mins drive from St Gilgen) and to Berchtesgaden & Ramsau in Germany. Highly recommended as they are so picturesque.

Stayed one night in this hotel as our usual hotel was closed for pre-Easter vacation. I can throughly recommend this hotel to anyone. A very friendly reception from the owner who takes a real interest, very clean presentable rooms and wonderful breakfast. And not expensive! A lot of more expensive hotels in St Gilgen could learn a lot from this hotel. Stay here and you will not be disappointed.
No swimming pool or fitness so hence the rating, otherwise everything was excellent

Just back from visiting Christmas Markets in Germany and Austria. We stayed just 1 night at Hotel Schernthaner, but it was wonderful. We took the bus from a Salzburg, and it was less than a 5 minute walk from the bus stop. Markets were 1 minute from the hotel. Room was clean, large, quiet, and we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast. Next time, we will stay longer!

St. Gilgen was our accomodation for two nights in mid-October. Hotel Garni Schernthaner exceeded our expectations in every way. Anneliese, the owner, was very understanding in reducung our rate due to a last-minute change in our reservation from 3 to 2 persons due to illness. She was charming and helpful in every way possibe. Our new room was wonderful, overlooking the lake and village. One thing I loved about this hotel was the attention to detail in decor and cleanliness. The breakfast buffet was scrumtious and fulfilling. We rode the Zwolfer Horn cablecar lift to witness the beauty of the season's first snowfall and then bicycled the next day along the lake using the hotels free bike fleet. For first-timers, it is helpful to remember that the 150 Bus from Salzberg is fast and inexpensive. The hospitality and location was beyond compare....thank you for making our stay so wonderful !

Room Tip: Our 3rd Floor room had a great view over the village rooftops overseeing Lake Wolfgansee. The const...

Super friendly staff, nice size room and bathroom, very clean, great location, excellent breakfast, ideal location - perfect combination for a lovely stay. We only wish we had booked more than 2 nights! Not only would we return to St. Gilgen, but would definitely return to the charming and traditional Schernthaner. Of our three week trip of Bavaria and northern Austria, this hotel was one of our favorites! Thank you for a delightful stay!

Room Tip: The balcony rooms in the front have a wonderful view, but the street can be a bit noisy.
