“Great Hotel for best view on lake”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 via mobile

This is 10 suits hotel comes in 1 bedroom suit or 2bedrooms. Private family managing the hotel all of them were friendly and polite and gives rich information about the city. The mother cooks a delicious meals everything tasty and balanced. I loved the clean rooms and huge space of the living room the sauna room in each suite. I need to remark that there is 2 ways take you to the to the hotel . Most of the navigation maps use the undesired way which is difficult for the car to climb . Kindly use the one just after the gas oil station sign boards visible. If you did not see the sign boards thats mean you are on the undesired way.

Our family of four stayed in this hotel for five nights over Christmas last December. Our suite was spacious and extremely comfortable. The view of the lake and the mountains was breathtaking. We took half board most nights in the hotel restaurant --- the meals were amazing ! Very helpful and caring staff...we were so well taken cared of... Our kids also loved it!

For those who want to go skiing, it's a real good location with Schmittenhohe nearby. Lots to do around for adults and kids alike.

A perfect place to have your holiday! Highly recommended.

This was our first trip to Zell am See and our first skiing holiday as a family. We carefully looked through all of the hotel reviews and found Der Sonnberg. We can only say that the reviews understated the experiences. We were in contact with the hotel two weeks prior to our arrival, they were very informative about the hotel and the area, no question was too challenging for them. A few days before our arrival we received a welcome email listing all of the hotel services and interesting places within the area.

After our long drive from Stuttgart to Zell am See, through some interesting mountain routes, we finally arrived at about 5pm. We called the hotel ahead of time and advised them of our revised arrival time; they asked if we were taking Half Board that day.

The hotel was easy to find and was situated at the top of a very high hill, the drive was interesting because you have to navigate some very steep inclines on some very narrow roads. 10 minutes later even in the evening the view is breath taking.......

Upon our arrival we were greeted by the team with a very warm welcome. They even kept the kitchen open (which was usually closed on a Monday) just for us. There was a separate special traditional Austrian menu prepared for us Schnitzel and Apple struddel for desert... nice..

The next few days were exactly the same. Very warm service, personalised and extremely friendly.

The suite was wonderful, very comfortable and we even had time after skiing to enjoy the in suite sauna. A little small, but very comfortable for four people.

So in summary, a wonderful holiday experience and we are looking forward to going back to Zell am See and the Der Sonnberg later this year.

We stayed three nights here, excellent location even though a bit away from the lake.

They provided Zell Am See card for free, we got free entrance to the boat trip, Kitzsteinhorn etc.

Friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast, clean rooms, and amazing view of the lake and mountains from the balcony.

Unfortunately we only stayed one night, the hotel is very nice with a great view of the lake, the people that run the hotel are extremely nice and went the extra yard to make our short stay just perfect, to accommodate my need for a late check out they upgraded us to the panorama suite, which was breathless, a view with 2 bedrooms, sauna, living room/kitchen, etc.
Getting to the hotel is quite a climb but definitely worth it, I would highly recommend Sonnberg, I also recommend the restaurant, much better than any restaurant we had in town.

We were staying elsewhere in Zell am See, but we booked the restaurant to celebrate my 65th birthday, together with our family. There were 10 of us in all, including a two year old, who was made very welcome.

The meal was excellent, although a little more up market than we had been anticipating - the food and service were first class throughout. The restaurant is situated a few kilometers outside Zell am See itself, and has great views down to the lake, enhanced on this occasion by a raging thunderstorm during the latter part of our meal (we had been seated inside in anticipation!).

As I step in I felt I am at home Mr. Gerhard let me feel as I know him from long time. He show me around the place ask me how many Zell am see card do I need.
We decide that night to had our meal at hotel restaurant which was great idea the food was very tasty, also you can get Pizza, but only in your room. During our stay it was rainy which forces us to stay in our suit for long time, but the view from the balcony amazing
The hotel 3 floors the 1st, 2nd has five suits and the 3rd has the biggest suit, the parking free and very convenient the hotel has two entrance in two levels which made very easy for me to take my luggage to my room.
My wife and I decide go with the family again and stay in this hotel.
