A gem of a place to stay. Very easy to get to the slopes. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the sauna and steam room provided welcome relaxation at the end of the day. The food was the real bonus with lots of choice and variation, tasty and plenty of it. I would have given it 5 stars but for two things. Firstly, the price of the drinks especially the bottled water (order tap water) and secondly payment can only be made with cash.

What can we say, great hotel, staff, food, rooms, cleanliness, reception, all excellent. We stayed over New Year, beautiful Steak on New Years Eve.
The only minus point would be the cost of the drinks, don't get carried away, especially when ordering the table water!!!!
But when you go to the bars and resturants its on par.
Well done to Micheal - the owner, you have a great Hotel.
He even carried out a personnel welcome and good bye!!

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view

Very handy for main Zell slopes and ski bus, food very well cooked, New Year party sounded good if we could've stayed awake. Typically clean Austraian rooms, with small pool and sauna etc. Happy to recommend.

We've just returned from our 3rd stay over New Year. Normally we wouldn't gamble on a 3 star but it's well positioned for ski-lifts, spotless rooms & a nice spa. You see many repeat customers, no better recommendation. The food has gone up a notch this year too, now excellent quality.

We think it's great value for money, with friendly owners, who go out of their way to ensure you have a great stay. If you want a small comfortable hotel, close to the slopes this could be for you.

Top tips: 1. no credit/debit card facility to pay bar bill at end of stay, so have cash on you. 2. Avoid paying €4 for water by asking for tap water.

Room Tip: Ask for high room with lake view. 124 a good one.

A group of 13 (age range from 7 to 50) of us stayed here for New Years and there is not a bad thing I can think of saying. Michael and his family create such a welcoming environment. The waitresses and bar staff could not be friendly. I felt like it was home from home.
The swimming pool, sauna, and steam room were a welcome site at the end of a long day on the slopes. The location was perfect for the slopes with nursery slopes for the kids on the doorstep as well as a range of blue and red runs at the top of the mountain.
The only way to ski to the hotel is via black runs but this didn't spoil our fun. It was a lovely down hill walk (15-20 mins) into zell am see but we tended to take a taxi (10-15euro) or the free ski bus back to the hotel.
One piece of advise will be that don't book through crystal as it costs twice as much as booking direct with Daxer. Also the ski hire at the shack next door is also half the price of crystal (who also use the shack) for example a helmet with crystal will set u back £25 and they charged us €7 direct.
The food was great, probably the best I've ever eaten at a half board hotel.
Thanks to all at Daxer for a fantastic new year. I think we will be coming back.

Just returned from the Daxer hotel (party of 8 adults). Cannot fault this hotel and staff. Everyone was very friendly and helpful.. The hotel is in a great position for getting to the ski lifts, the rooms were warm, clean and very comfortable. The food was excellent. It is a 30 minute walk into Zell am See but we knew this before we booked so it wasn't a problem. A great holiday, would definitely recommend.

We also had a wonderful week at the Gartenhotel Daxer for our Daughter's Wedding. The rooms were warm and clean and very comfortable, the food excellent. The Owners Michael and Connie and their staff went to a lot of trouble to arrange a wonderful wedding which everyone enjoyed. The Wedding venue in Zell am See was an old Castle (now the Town Hall) and the Registrar made a lovely speech. The Wedding was as good as any we have seen and I would thoroughly recommend it if you are looking for a Wedding Ceremony thats a bit different.
Plenty to do and see and we went on some great trips around the lake with such lovely scenery and up mountains by cable cars, also the town of Zell am See is really nice to walk around and have a drink or a coffee.The views are fantastic and there are plenty of taxis and buses - a really enjoyable week.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the lake
