An Excellent Stay - Recommended!
We spent a charming two nights in a double mountain view room at Villa Excelsior during winter season, a historic hotel bit removed from the historic center of Bad Gastein. The hotel offers complimentary pickup from the train station and is an easy (and picturesque) walk from the historic center. The half-board option includes a buffet breakfast (delicious coffee!) and a gourmet dinner in a classy dining room with excellent service. The hotel also has a wellness with different saunas and a relaxation room (that we used daily before dinner), and offers massage service and thermal baths (that we didn't use). There are also many public area sitting rooms. While there are probably more luxurious places than the three star hotel, would return for the excellent service, historic feeling, and quiet / comfortable rooms. I believe it's possible to book for dinner, which is well worth it even if one is not staying at the hotel.

4/10 Fair

After reading great reviews about this property, we were disappointed with our stay. The room wasn't what we expected based on pictures, and yes, we looked at photos of the correct room type. It also wasn't that clean. The biggest disappointment was the amenities, which was the reason we booked the hotel in the first place. They are only available during limited hours, and we ended up going to the Felsentherme instead, which was nice, but defeated the purpose of booking this hotel. The breakfast was good and the best part of the stay.

5 nights stay in Bad Gastein
The Villa Excelsior is a well maintained, traditional hotel. Service is attentive and friendly, food was very good (we stayed half-board). The hotel is about 5-10 minutes walk from the centre, in a lovely location overlooking the valley. We were hiking every day, and it was a perfect start point to get up into the mountains. Overall, we had a very pleasant stay, and would rate it very highly also for value for money.

Relaxing elegance
Step through the doors of this hotel to experience a step back in time to an era of great service, elegance, gentle formality and an owner who really does care that you enjoy your stay in his village. Not only was the hotel a great find but Bad Gastein itself was a fascinating village with lots to see and do. I feel sure we shall return.

This is an outstanding place if you are looking for the old Austria. I could easily imagine my grandparents staying here 50-100 years ago. Very nice owners, good food. Easy to walk to the old tourist centre or off into the woods.

Beautiful little hotel in a lovely alpine town!
I highly recommend a stay at the Villa Excelsior. Christof and his family will take excellent care of you. Staying in the hotel was like stepping back in time, yet with modern conveniences. In a short time, we felt like we were staying in a comfortable family home. As well, I highly recommend taking advantage of the dinner offer. The food was excellent and a good value. We will definitely return and stay for a longer period.

A Walk With History
As a writer by profession, I can admit that even I am at a loss to find enough words of praise for the Villa Excelsior. Everywhere you look is a gift for the eyes. Christof, the owner, has lovingly restored this building which remains perhaps one of the only testaments in Bad Gastein to the way life was once lived.
