This time we stayed for 4 days with 4 familes - 3 children under 5 years, one dog, young couples and couples in the 60's. We could not have wished for better holiday! We could enjoy skiing,and also the great variety of programs - organised by the Ortner Family. For the kids and for the adults as well there were...

We spent Feb half term at the hotel on a half board basis, as a family of four in 2 double rooms. The hotel is about 2 hours drive from Salzburg and has good level parking available. This hotel is one of the most relaxing places we have ever stayed at, especially given that we were skiing the sense of...

Family friendly with entertainment and care for children of all ages. Rooms are well kept. Spa area as well really comfy, with family and adult areas. No chlorine smell. Quite delicious food with emphasise on local and organic. Sometimes too much mixing of very different ingredients but otherwise interesting, quite diversified and innovative cuisine. Excellent cheese range. Service friendly and...

Eschenhof has everything you need during your holiday...and something more! We appreciated above all the toys room, where 2 capable baby-sitters were able to play for hours with our son and his friends. Also they organize pretty activities for them (bread cooking, hiking for families, etc...). Above all you can use this room to leave your son during the dinner,...

My family and I have stayed at many hotels in Austria and elsewhere, many very welcoming. Herr and Frau Ortner and their team exceeded even the high standards we have come to expect. We were a party of eight, and were made to feel extremely welcome by Maria on arrival. The rooms were very comfortable and the food was consistently...

The hotel itself is at great location, only 100 m from the lift. The staff from reception, restaurant and everyone else were amazing, there is NO word in their vocabulary, everything is possible and they are constantly at your disposal. Ms. Eva with kids was great, spent quality time with them regardless of the kids age. The most amazing about...

We have just returned from a wonderfully relaxing week at the Eschenhof hotel. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we were made to feel very welcome and definitely part of the family. This hotel has a super spa area with an indoor and small outdoor pool. I love swimming outside in the winter, especially if it...

The best thing about this hotel are the owners who are most welcoming. Mr Ortner had so much time for all his guests and made us feel immediately at ease. I would recommend the 'winter garden' room for the slight extra cost, this allows extra space on the inside of the room on what would have been a balcony. The...

We were traveling through the area without reservations, and had lunch at a nearby 5* hotel, which had no room availability. Being overseas visitors, we didn't have internet available on our phones, and had to make a reservation quickly using our laptop on a public connection. That is why we didn't realize how "child-friendly" this hotel is. We also didn't...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ortners' Eschenhof - Alpine Slowness Time for me, time for you, time for us...Experience a holiday with a new sense of time at Eschenhof! Spend an enjoyable holiday in an absolutely quiet location right in the centre of Bad Kleinkirchheim. Revitalise yourself amidst the nature of the biosphere reserve. Whether by bike, e-bike or with your hiking shoes in summer, or with snow shoes or skis in the wintery Nockberge, one thing is for sure: you will leave everyday life far behind and be in close touch with nature. You will feel quite at home in the "large living room" of Eschenhof. The cosy rooms and family apartments have modern interiors with many thoughtful details and are a personal oasis of tranquillity for every guest. Time for yourself, time for your partner, for the family: find complete relaxation to suit all requirements in the family wellness area with an outdoor and indoor pool and in the spacious Eschenhof spa with beauty treatments, massages, quiet oases, various sauna attractions and a separate adult area. The organic meals from the regional "Green Toque Cuisine" will make your healthy holiday for your body and spirit perfect! Children are also well taken care of. Eva and the kids' pavilion await children every day with fun and creative games ideas - with and in nature. "Mountains of holiday fun"... ...in SUMMER: guided hikes, mountain bike trails from the hotel, free tennis on our tennis courts. Greenfee price reductions at the Bad Kleinkirhheim-Kaiserburg golf course... ...in WINTER: lifts and pistes within walking distance (about 5 minutes), peace and quiet away from the pistes on snow shoe hikes in unspoilt nature, cross-country skiing on our perfectly prepared trail in the valley, winter hiking trails right from the hotel, daily soup voucher for our hut Maibrunnhutte, from March ski pass included in the price of your stay, Family Euro with special ski pass rates for families, free shuttle to the ski school... ...the WHOLE YEAR: "Nature Experience" - guided nature experiences introducing you to the beauty and diversity of the Nockberge.
