“Lovely people, wonderful holiday”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

We have stayed at Obertrauner Hof three times so far (5 to 7 nights each time) and will continue to go back. The hotel is in the middle of the the village and only a short walk from the lake. Our hosts (Trevor and Debbie) are very knowledgeable about what's going on in the region, where to go, what to see etc. and always cheerful and accommodating. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and all have balconies. The last time we stayed we had a room with a huge new bathroom and the usual spectacular view of the mountains and valley. Although the breakfast room is a little small, they have another just across the hall so there's no real inconvenience and Trevor is continuously restocking the breakfast buffet. Downstairs they have a large flat-screen tv, pool table and games which means the communal lounges outside the rooms on the floors above are always calm and relaxing. I can't recommend this place enough.

Room Tip: We prefer the rooms facing the street - although there is some traffic, the rooms are still quiet an...

We only stayed for one night and regret not staying for two. Debbie & Trevor are the most hospitable and gracious hosts. They made us feel so welcome.The rooms were clean and spacious. Even though the room we had did not have the remodelled bathroom it was perfectly clean and large. Breakfast was adequate with good coffee. We preferred Obertraun to Hallstatt. It was quieter. If you have a car which we did, it was convenient to get around. We found a nice restaurant Gasthaus Koppenrast. It was next to a river.It was a 10 minute drive further on from Obertraun. Great dinner. The duck was superb and the tomato soup was divine. Best meal we had on our European holiday.

Trevor and Debbie made us feel so welcome and at home, as though we were visiting friends. With three of us traveling, this was by far the most comfortable for my 18 year old son. A real third bed. Our bathroom had not been remodeled, but is was clean and had everything you need, a wonderful deep, long soaking tub with shower. Lots of room to unpack with plenty of space to move around. The hotel is also a block away from a small market to get things like munchies. The town is beautiful and everyone is very friendly. But Trevor and Debbie make the stay really wonderful. Can't say enough.

Debbie and Trevor are such gracious hosts. We had a wonderfully spacious room with a newly renovated bathroom and a huge balcony, where we were able to sit and have a couple of glasses of wine, looking at the mountains. We were served a plentiful and varied breakfast, which Trevor took credit for but Debbie was doing all the work in the kitchen. While we had no idea about the Hallstatt and Obertraun area of Austria, Trevor was able to give us a lot of great ideas and suggestions as to where to go and what to see. We could not do any hiking on this trip as my brother developed a problem with his leg. But the next time, and there will be a next time, we are at Obertrauner Hof, we will be taking advantage of all the hiking and water sports available.
Thank you so very much Debbie and Trevor

Room Tip: Rooms facing the lake give you a good view of the mountains

We stayed for 4 nights at the Obertrauner Hof in early September. Debbie and Trevor went out of their way to be helpful and ensure that we were comfortable. The room we had on the first floor was spacious and well appointed, breakfast was varied and plentifull and Trevor was a mine of information about places to visit in the surrounding area. The village is on a beautiful lake surrounded by mountains and wonderfully quiet.

We stayed with Debbie and Trevor for 5 nights, with our 17 year old twins. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and the hosts were very helpful and friendly.
We traveled all over the beautiful lakes area and we decided that Obertraun was the nicest of the villages perfectly located on the lake with the mountains minutes away.
An ideal break for all.
