My wife and I went to St Johann for a week's stay having booked the holiday with Thomson. We had been to Austria several times before but only went through St Johann dropping people off on our way to Mayrhofen and so decided to go there when the opportunity came. We had no idea what Hotel Park would be like either. We were there between the 6th and 13th July this year.
When we arrived at Hotel Park, the checking in was very smooth and we were given the key to our room straight away. The first impression was excellent as the staff were very warm and friendly. We were very surprised at how large our room was (we were given a corner room) and we had excellent view of the mountain from our balcony. The room itself was very clean and well presented. It had a separate toilet and there was space for a coffee table and two easy chairs at the corner of the room. Throughout our stay, our room was cleaned and bed and bath linen changed every day! There was no noise from the traffic on the main road as it was not a busy road. It also looked onto the garden where we had our evening meals & BBQ.
The hotel itself was typically Austrian. The staff were excellent as I mentioned before and the waiters and waitress were extremely pleasant and nothing was too much for them. After the first day, they knew what we wanted for our drink (water) with our meals. Drinks such as wine and juices were free with the meals. There were free coffee and tea each afternoon between 2 and 5 pm. Free packed lunches were available on requests. The standard of the food was very good and throughout our week, every meal was excellent. There were bacon and scrambled egg and continental breakfast. The range was very good. We were given the menu for the evening meal each day during breakfast time and we made our requests then. There were three choices for the main course and two choices of starters excluding the soup. We had BBQ one evening and meat was plentiful with a wide range of salads etc. The hotel took the trouble of organising 'Breakfast on the Mountain' one morning. Bacon and scrambled eggs were cooked in front of us and the view was excellent. It made a lovely change eating out in the open with the most gorgeous view!! One afternoon the hotel arranged free taxi transfer to a lodge outside the town. We were entertained to music by an old gentleman on his stringed instrument. A lovely way to spend a quiet relaxing afternoon with a glass of drink in our hands.
The location of the hotel was ideal as it is just a short distance from the cable car station, bus station and railway station. The town square and the main Catholic Church is just about 10 mins walk away. It is an ideal distance for a gentle stroll after a hearty meal each evening.
The friendliness of the staff and the relaxing atmosphere of the hotel make it an ideal place to stay for a chill out holiday. We will certainly recommend it to others and will most certainly come back to this hotel should we come back to St Johann again.
