I stayed at this hotel in the heart of the Austrian mountains for almost a week and it really was a beautiful location and in truly magnificent surroundings which makes for a very relaxing place to stay.
The hotel is located in the north of the town/village of Kirchberg and there were some lovely coffe shops/ice cream parlours and a great italian with an outdoor balcony for eating. Kirchberg also has a very well stocked supermarket which is on the way into the town from the Spertendorf Hotel, so plenty of options for extra food.
A car would be a must for staying in this location and all the other guests staying were there with a vehicle. In the surrounding area there is plenty to do and the lovely town of St Johann is only half an hour away in the car. There's plenty of options for walking and cable cars in the summer and also a real hive of ski-ing activity in the winter.
The hotel itself has rooms over 3 floors and there is a lift too which is always handy for bags etc. The rooms were quite basic, but the shower was fantastic and the fixtures and fittings in the bathrooms looked very new and there was a huge sink too. Many of the rooms have access to a balcony which was a lovely option and the views across the open countryside were wonderful. There were stables nextdoor to the hotel and it was lovely to watch the horses grazing and playing together. There was reasonable storage in the room and the bed was comfortable too. Try and get a room that looks over the fields at the back of the hotel, it is just spectacular.
There were only two downsides to the hotel. The first was the noise coming from the rooms directly above rooms 205 and 206. Some of our group were staying in the 2nd floor rooms and we think it is the owners that live above. It was a shame it sounded as though they were wearing lead boots and there was lots of noise, so it was hard to relax in these rooms during the evening. But if you avoid these rooms, I doubt it would be a problem.
The second downside was the heat in the hotel. The bedrooms didn't have an obvious radiator but the heating seemed to be on and despite having the balcony doors open full, it was difficult to get the room comfortable. And this was on a day when it was raining and along 15 degrees C outside. On all the other days it was much warmer outside, yet the inside was still quite stifling.
The food in the hotel was okay, nothing to write home about. The breakfast room was well serviced and the staff were brilliant with bringing extra coffee and making sure everything was okay. I guess the cost of the rooms meant the breakfast was only ever going to be canned fruit, watered down orange juice and a disappointing selection of cereal. The bread and jam/chocolate spread were plentiful, but if you like cereal then it would worth taking your own to supplement the options. Coffee in the hotel was good and there were some simple options for lunch and a set menu each evening for dinner, but we didn't eat there in the evening.
The extra facilities at the hotel are a sauna and steam room which are a great extra to have in a hotel which is such great value.
If you are travelling with a family or want great value and homely accommodation, with a warm and friendly welcome then this would be a great choice.
