“Highly recommended hotel - you won't be disappointed”
Reviewed 20 January 2011

The Jakobwirt hotel is a beautiful hotel to stay in, immaculate, so very clean and wonderfully traditional. The service is excellent, the food delicious and plentiful, all the staff are polite and attentive. The owners are 3 sisters who are, very professional but are also very lovely, and they care about their customers. I, my boyfriend and our two friends have stayed in the Jakobwirt for the last 3 years and have just booked to stay again in 2012.

This is a typically Austrian hotel furnished in the simple, traditional style of the region so do not expect upmarket swish and modern. We grew to like the style as the week progressed!
The hotel is immacutely clean in every aspect - I regard this to be top of my list when looking for somewhere to lodge.
Our room faced onto the fabulous church and the mountains (yes the bells ring regularly during the day from 7am - but not during the night -it makes a nice change and we got used to it.
I would describe the room as furnished sparcely. Twin austrian beds with duvets and 1 pillow each (we asked for extra ones and it was no bother at all) 1 free standing wardrobe, bedside cabinet and a table with two dining chairs but no comfy chairs to lounge around in. The TV, which was a small portable one, sat on a luggage rack to the right of the bed, near the bedside cabinet so was almost impossible to see whilst in bed and we couldn't move it. There was only one English channel, BBC World News.

The bathroom was lovely with lots of room, a powerful shower over the bath and good overhead halogen lighting. The towels were small and a little old but changed daily if you required - so don't expect capacious and fluffy!
There was a little vestibule outside the bedroom for ski gear etc and an additional door onto the bedroom which blocked out any noise, though I would describe the hotel as 'quiet' and no rabble rousing in the corridors which was a delight!
The breakfast was adequate, typical selection of pastries, cheeses/meat, cereals, rolls etc. The hot breafast was either boiled eggs or scrambled eggs.
We thoroughly enjoyed the evening meal( usually 5 courses including salad) it was always hot, plenty of it and generally of an excellent standard.
The three Ziepl sisters were always on hand to accommodate any needs and were very friendly and attentive. If you don't ski I would recommend having lunch in the hotel as it is very reasonable in comparison to other eateries in the village.
You will be glad to hear that 'tap water' was served during the evening meal if requested and it was not only delicious but free. Too many hotels insist on you buying bottled water or charge for jugs of tap water and you have a hefty bill at the end of the week.

There is a Spar and Billa supermarket within 100 yds of the hotel and they are reasonably priced. Locl buses travel regularly to Kitzbuhel, it's worth a visit if only to people watch! 3 euros one way.
A mention for young Katya on reception who speaks very good English and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. She is an excellent ambassador for the hotel.

On the whole a very enjoyable stay at this well run family hotel.

We have just returned from the Hotel Jakobwirt where we stayed for 11 nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially Daniela on reception and Heidi in the restaurant. The quality of the room was excellent, with amazing views. The service overall was excellent and the food quality was second to none. Westendorf is a very beautiful village and is full of character. We would have no hesitation in going back and fully intend to do so. Go and see it for yourself, you won't be disappointed!

My wife and I stayed for the tenth consecutive year in this fabulous hotel with the family Zeipl as our hosts. The popularity of this hotel is confirmed by the guests who return year after year. The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming while being professional and efficient. The hotel is warm with a cosy lounge and bar. The bar is where you can be introduced to your fellow guests for a quiet drink. In the basement there is a more lively bar with live music which can be accessed from the hotel but in no way disturbes the main hotel lounge or rooms. I would find it extremely difficult to find any fault with this hotel and the holiday experience it offers.

We stayed in Hotel Jakobwirt for a week last year. I had a read a review about the "sisters" being unfriendly however we thought they were very pleasant. They were friendly, always available to help and full of tips and ideas about where to go and what runs to take etc. We had four young kids including a baby with us and the bottles were heated without any fuss and we were allowed use the fridge in the hotel kitchen as well. Nice touch. As to whether it's a 4 star, it seems its just the way it is in the Skiwelt. We've stayed in the Postwirt in Soll and the Hochfilzer in Ellmau and they all have the same qualities - good food, good service, perhaps not as modern as newer 4 stars but we find them very comfortable, relaxed and somewhere we will always come back to.

I just spent four enjoyable nights at the Jakobwirt and I hope to return many more times. The hotel is very professionally run with a very personal attention to guests from the owners and staff. I felt like I was staying at home. The hotel is near the ski lifts and local shops - very convenient. To quote another famous Tyrolean: "I'll be back"!

Just back from a great week's skiing. Stayed at Hotel Jakobwirt, Westendorf which is a small ideally located hotel run by 3 sisters and their friendly staff who are attentive to the needs of guests at all times.


Rooms, food, and service are all excellent. Guests mingle with and chat with each other. It is a bit like having your own private ski chalet with friends.


1 small complaint: It is a pity that CNN is the only English speaking TV channel. Just as well I did not have too much spare time for watching TV!

Hope to return soon and often
