True Austrian Spa Delight

Posted Sep 28, 2017
Pros: Gym, pool and spa; Food.
Location: Mountain biking and all spa options.
Unexpected evening stay on way back to Frankfurt, the Romantik Hotel was an amazing surprise. Fabulous gym and spa - including infinity pool with amazing view. Hotel food was outstanding - both dinner and breakfast. And comes with free parking. Felt like the true Austrian mountain spa experience.

Would not recommend if there is more then 3 people in a room. Had to reserve 2 rooms, spoke to someone to help me get my family accommodated over the phone it seemed like things were good until we showed up the rooms were not together with a conjoining door like I was told they would be. Receptionist did not seem to care. It's a nice and fancy hotel but I absolutely would not stay here again.

My second stay at this hotel. They have 3 indoor and 2 outdoor tennis courts which is why we chose this hotel. However the lovely spa facilities, the indoor pool , and great food on offer along with delightful staff is the reason l went back and will continue

An Austrian Alps Paradise

Posted Apr 8, 2017
I chose to go to Salzburg for Christmas. After researching I found that I wanted peaceful, quiet, fairy tale-like and fun. This was this resort. It is about eight miles north of Salzburg and easily accessed by bus into the city. Only take fifteen minutes. The hotel is very old with a new edition across the street. I did not have the chance to see the rooms on the old side but was in the building a lot and feel that no matter the side you cannot go wrong. I was on the new side and the room was bigger than my London apartment. The tile floors were heated and there were floor to ceiling windows that let you view the sunset on the Alps right from your room. Giant bathtub or the biggest walk in shower and rain shower head I've ever seen. They gave me welcome snacks and because I was visiting during a holiday they had a set menu in the restaurant that was amazing. Actually ate there two nights in a room it was so good. There's a sweet little church next door that I got to attend. There is also an Infiniti pool that overlooks the mountains. I could not have asked for a more picturesque paradise of a place than this hotel and staff and if I'm ever in the area or see this hotel brand in other travels I would definitely consider it again. My Christmas was a pleasure thanks to the Romantik Hotel group.

Pleasant hotel, but not up to 4 star standard.

Posted Sep 10, 2016
Pros: The breakfast was excellent.
Cons: Install air conditioning. Bathroom needs updating.
Location: Pleasant location with restaurants nearby.
Although a nice hotel with friendly staff, the lack of air conditioning is a big minus. We arrived in September and temperatures hit 28-30 degrees. The summer must be unbearable. We were provided fans, but mosquitos were out in force. The fans were required all night. I had written to Romantik stating we were celebrating our 30th anniversary on our trip to Salzburg, but it fell on deaf ears as our room was very basic. I am surprised this is classed as 4 star.

Beautiful hotel with romantic feel

Posted Aug 7, 2016 on Hotels
Had a wonderful stay at the Romantik Hotel Gmachl. The rooms were beautiful and charming. The location was very quaint and there were great views of rolling hills from the indoor pool. Pool and hotel amenities were fantastic. The staff were friendly and helpful. Great place to stay if you're looking for romance.

if you want to sleep past 6am, move on!

Posted Jul 7, 2016 on Hotels
Staff was fabulous, room was spotless, breakfast was delicious, and parking was provided without a problem, and pool is modern with infinity edges like the pictures. However, there are a couple things about this hotel that made us regret our stay: our bedroom was located on the side next to the church with a cemetery. the church bell rings every 15 minutes starting at 6am. this is quite annoying given the room doesn't have air conditioner so we needed to keep the window somewhat opened. be aware also that they have an old side and a new side across the street(new side contains the pool). pictures are of the new side. old building's rooms look dated. outside of the hotel, note that parking is expensive in the city of Salzburg.
