Austria Trend Hotel Schloss Lebenberg5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We have just returned from a very enjoyable week's holiday with Inghams( Secret Escapes). Hotel is definitely 5* - the room, food, staff, pool- everything faultless. But- there could have been a nasty accident on the last morning of our stay. It had rained overnight and I was walking on the decking outside our room. The decking proved to be extremely slippy as it hadn't been cleaned and I fell heavily. Luckily no bones broken but I am aching 2 days later. ( I am in my 60's) There was moss growing on the decking in places and it was extremely slippy where the rain had reached - the decking was green-- we clean our decking at home with bleach to avoid this happening. I did report it to reception. The problem won't be restricted to our room. I trust the hotel will respond to avoid it happening to someone else. Thankfully the incident didn't spoil our holiday but it could easily have done so. We had a room overlooking the forest on level 4 but it was on the ground floor and it was very pleasant sitting out. We would definitely return to the hotel.
Stayed here for a week mid July and although we enjoyed our stay there were a couple of issues. The room was a very good size, clean, very comfortable bed and pillows but disappointing to fine there was no air conditioning to cope with the high temperatures. The pool and spa area very good we found the breakfast to be very good but would agree with previous comments about the evening meal more so the small main course portions however we found the staff to be very helpful and professional. Would be nice to have more outdoor space to have coffee/drinks in good weather.
We stayed at this hotel in late July for a hiking holiday booked through Inghams. It certainly lived up to its 5 star grading from our check-in until our departure a week later. Room was spacious, very clean with a superb mountain view. The pool has been written about in other reviews - it is truly stunning and the wellness area is most impressive too. The food and service for all meals were exceptional. All the staff work extremely hard, from the reception desk, bar, restaurant, house-keeping and the drivers for the courtesy minibus to town. We hired e-bikes from the hotel which proved to be great fun. Great care was taken to ensure we fully understood how to operate them. We also had a massage in the "vitality tower" which was great too. Overall, a first-class holiday and we have already booked to return to the Schloss Lebenberg in March 2018 through Inghams for a skiing holiday. We can hardly wait!
We only stayed one night so please read the review with that in mind. On the positive side the room we had was very nice with a panoramic view over the surrounding area. It was also very modern with a unique style / design (bathroom "in the room" but capable of being separated from the rest of the room with screen). But.....the room was unbearably hot. The windows are perfect for viewing the scenery but when only one of them opens its impossible to cool the room down. So possibly the most uncomfortable nights sleep in a long time. For such a modern building this is a major design flaw. The facilities in the hotel were otherwise very good although there did not seem to be enough parking.
One of the best hotels I've stayed in. I previously stayed here for a skiing holiday a number of years ago and would only stay here when in Kitzbuhel. We returned for a summer alpine holiday and wasn't disappointed, the facilities are fantastic, staff are friendly and attentive and rooms immaculate. Remains one of my favourite hotels
Friendly hotel in a beautiful location above Kitzbuhel (the short walk into town was so pretty, we never bothered with the shuttle bus). The room was good - reasonable size, clean, nice bathroom and the bar area made a lovely place to relax before or after dinner. The spa was fabulous and spotless with incredible views over the mountains (watching the lightning from the sauna was a rare experience!). I would agree with recent comments on the restaurant - although we found the food itself to be good (nothing to shout about, but good) the format of the dinners & breakfasts was dull (same old salad bar and routine) and the restaurant was crowded - we seemed to be forever getting up to walk to the buffet for one course or another; it's old fashioned. That said, the location, spa and staff mean we would both recommend and stay again.
Positives first: The room itself was lovely and clean and comfortable with plenty of storage space. The hotel pool is a great facility and the gym is good apart from the broken rowing machine foot straps. Breakfast buffet was also good. Unfortunately having paid for half board in a 5 star hotel the evening experience was poor. The food on the whole was pleasant but the portion sizes were very small and not ideal for people mountain walking or cycling all day. My main complaint though is the waiting staff at best they were sullen but sometimes downright rude and made us feel uncomfortable. They were also consistently disorganised and couldn't remember which courses had already been served. Sometimes we had to wait 30 minutes between courses and yet have 3 different staff members ask what we were waiting for. This is pretty basic stuff and I wouldn't return for this reason. We have visited hotels more than 10 times before in Austria and usually the service and welcome is excellent. If you only want bed and breakfast though it would be a good place for most providing you have no mobility or fitness issues as it is a steep descent into town.
My wife and I recently stayed for a week in a Castle room in the old Schloss part of the hotel. We had a spacious, charming room with antique furniture which we really liked whilst at the same time were able to enjoy all of the modern facilities in the hotel. We thought the spectacular panoramic pool was superb and particularly liked the selection of teas and fruit that were available for refreshment. The view from the restaurant of the Hannenkam mountain was also fantastic. We thought the food and service were excellent at both breakfast and dinner, particularly from Gador who was unobtrusively attentive. We are looking forward to returning again at the earliest opportunity.
The hotel and amenities were very good. The services and food in the restaurant were awful to be honest. We were seated on Table 631 for 11 nights, unfortunately, we felt as if service stopped at table 630 and began again at 632! The food was definately not 5* standard. The service seemed to be....The more money you had, the better service you got.
We went as a family of 4. We were greeted with toys for the kids and smooth service. We enjoyed the location of the hotel, being elevated on a hill. The views were terrific from both the room and the pool. The pool was a highlight, being nice for swimming laps and still nice for the kids. There are reserved kid-free times, as well. We enjoyed the dining and food. Service was quick and smooth. We would definitely recommend it to anybody.
