I stayed here for 6 nights whilst attending a conference in Bad Gastein. The hotel is a dream! Firstly the staff are incredibly hospitable and made me feel instantly welcome. My room was spacious and comfortable with stunning views. The hotel has two saunas and a lovely outdoor pool. The food I ate there was fantastic - I recommend having...

That was something! To be cared as royals from the moment we made the reservation. Hotel reception sent us an email a few days before arrival, that we can choose a particular room.

Wonderful in all aspects. Owner and his wife were lovely and very helpful. Food was delicious, gluten free was no problem at all. Room was spacious, comfortable, and very clean. Can heartily recommend a visit. Just make sure you read their directions if going by car (both on their website, and in the booking confirmation). We didn't, and our satnav...

At the and of The Valley, but whitin walking distance of the Old Town a Nice and warm welcome. Rooms slightly outdated; but that's the whole point! Classic and traditional "Family-hotel". Price-Quality in perfect harmony.

We spent a wonderful evening at Excelsior in Sept 2016. The owners have done a good job in creating a Belle Epoch nostalgic atmosphere, with lots of antiques, and period touches. The breakfast and dinner were both very good both in value and quality. We loved the gentleman who checked us in, as well as the two waiters in the...

An excellent hotel with very good staff. We were disappointed to find some of the grand hotels in Bad Gastein to be boarded up, but their heyday was probably over a hundred years ago. However in Villa Excelsior you find an old building with traditional high levels of service match with modern facilities

We stayed here in early June and were blown away by everything-the room, the view, food and hospitality. The beautiful 19th century mansion was filled with antiques and lovingly cared for by our hosts, Christof and Johanna. The food was delicious, the rooms spacious, bed very comfortable. We had a beautiful view from our balcony of the town below, surrounded...

We stayed in this charming hotel for Easter with friends for skiing holiday. The interior of the place dates back to the early 1900 when the hotel was established, and one can still feel the spirit of Sigmund Freud and other intellectuals who stayed at this beautifully and elegantly decorated hotel. Our room was spacious for 3 persons with a...

Spent a week in the middle of march on ski vacation. Nice, cozy and friendly hotel located 10-15 min walk from the center of Bad Gastein. Manager/personnel did their work perfectly. Rooms were cleaned every day. Breakfast similiar each day but qualitative. Dinner/supper met expectations each day, was different and tasty. Hotel has a minibus that shuttle to the stubnerkogel...
