had a family suite with seperate child room; lot's of space there and nice terrace;
staff is superfriendly and helpful, and the whole Wellness area is outstanding;
location is perfect for little hikes with little kids, while on site there are no facilities for littel kids (pool are, playground and such); but anyhow, that place is supposed to enjoy nature; FOOD is fantastic
Various members of our family and ourselves have been coming here since almost the beginning as my husband was born in the area. Every visit this hotel just gets better and better.
This visit we stayed in the new garden suites. Absolutely stunning. Spotlessly clean, modern, hugely spacious with enormous terrace which overlooks the hills and the cows grazing.
The new infinity pool is incredible. Loved spending time in the quiet rooms too.
The service is fabulous and always so nice to see some familiar faces each visit.
The food is extremely generous with an amazing choice each day.
Yes, most of the guests are German speaking but it’s no problem if you don’t speak German as menus can be in English too.
Team Pierer you have done an outstanding job building your brand. It’s always fabulous to return and see you all again. Until next time. Thank you.
Deluxe suite :- Nicely appointed with pleasant views of the forest and hills. Capsule coffee maker and kettle (on request) provided. Lots of comfy seating. Smaller TV than we expected, mounted at an awkward viewing height on the wall. Large balcony.
Bathroom :- Huge with freestanding bath, separate shower and infra red cabin. Lighting a little dim though, and clear windows into the bedroom are not to everyone's taste, but they do let more light in I suppose...
Housekeeping :- To a very high standard but a shame they ignored the 'do not disturb' sign on the door one day while we were having breakfast. They made up the room and removed a map, guide book and soft drink bottle we had left on the floor near the door so as not to forget to take them out with us later. We found the housekeeper and got the map and book back though. I can only imagine they were expecting lots of guest changeovers that day and were in a rush to clean rooms.
Breakfast :- Excellent choice but omelettes were of variable quality.
Dinner :- Six courses on half board with plenty of choice. Menu in English available. No complaints, but nothing particularly special either.
Wellness :- Indoor and outdoor pools and loads of saunas and steam-rooms etc. Did not use them, but they seemed popular with plenty of other guests.
Waiting staff and front desk :- Just a handful of staff made an admirable effort to speak some English, just as we try and speak a bit of German, but there were notable exceptions who could not even manage to try simple words like tea or coffee. Not good for a high end hotel with an international clientele.
Verdict? A fine hotel in a beautiful location that nearly manages to justify its high prices. Very much recommended nevertheless.
Almwellness Hotel Pierer is a beautiful family owned and operated retreat in the Austrian countryside. The guest rooms are large and many have gorgeous scenic views. The public spaces are charming and the spa is outstanding with a panoramic indoor pool that is as relaxing as it is breath-taking. There is a pretty outdoor pool as well. Perhaps the best thing about the hotel, however, is the warmth and friendliness of the staff and their attention to detail. Oh, and I should mention, the views on the drive to the hotel are spectacular!
To say it right away: We love this hotel and our stay was absolutely fantastic! The wellness-Hotel is family-owned and you can feel that warm spirit with comes with it from the ceo (family-father who is very friendly) to the housecleaners and the receptionists, as well as the cooks and simply from all other people and employees who work there!
The wellness-facilitiies are great and clean and you defenitely will have the best possibilities to come down and relax! They also have an eye for details as they offer you small snacks and beverages for free during the day by the pool.
The rooms are awesome as they have a great interior and the most important thing; you'll believe you are in nature as they have great organic and healthy ingredients obstructed.
The location of this hotel is gorgeous which let me comes to the dining room. You expects a six-course Dinner which tastes outstanding! And you will HAVE an amazing view of the mountains outside as the name of the restaurant betrays: "Panorama-Restaurant"....
